Betcoin are an ambitious bitcoin gambling operator. They are the only site with a sportsbook, a poker room (review), a casino including live casino (review) and a dice game (review). Only the poker room is good.

We hear more bettors complaining about Betcoin than other sportsbooks.

Website

Betcoin Sports is an frustrating to use betting platform with a full set of user options such as Asian view, European view or American view layouts. They have the smallest maximum bets of any bitcoin sportsbook.

There are some frustrating bugs and poor user experience moments like buttons not working, pages not loading, multiple wallets and confusing URLs.

The have a large range of live in play markets with live scores and in the case of e-sports live twitch streams.

Odds

Sportsbook’s overround: 3.63%

50:50 equivalent: 1.92

Betcoin’s odds are pretty good. On NBA and English Premier League their overround was only 3.02% but they let themselves down with much worse odds on other markets, such as 7.87% overround on tennis.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Large.

Range of bet types per event: medium.

Transactions

Unique deposit addresses: Available.

Confirmations before bet: None! You can bet with 0 confirmations.

Withdrawal time: 2 - 12 hours.

Player to player transfer: Available.

Withdrawals require email confirmation.

Betcoin has the equal best transactions of all sportsbooks.

Customer service

Customer service channels available: Live chat and tickets.

Speed of replies: Live chat is not available 24/7 and tickets take 6 - 24 hours to be replied to.

Accuracy of replies: Bad. Staff want to answer as many questions as possible in as short a time as possible, rather than really understanding the customer's request. We were giving incorrect information multiple times.

Real life customer service test

Question: What happens with NHL hockey moneyline bets if the game ends in a draw and is won in overtime or in a penalty shootout?

Answer:

Usually the score is taken in the full time without the overtime. Is you bet on draw you win. If you bet otherwise you lose.

Notes: As well as containing spelling and grammar errors the above answer is incorrect. All Betcoin NHL markets include over time and the draw is not an option. We made a follow up question and were ignored with no response at all! We were also given incorrect information on how many confirmations deposits need before play.

Privacy and security

Information required at signup: Email address.

2 factor authentication: Available.

Betcoin has the equal best privacy security of all sportsbooks.

Bonuses

100% deposit bonus up to ฿1 for casino and poker.

Overall

On Betcoin you can indulge in a wide range of fun gambling all from 1 deposit but poker is the only area they excel in.

You can bet on Betcoin no problem but the higher ranked sportsbooks on this site are simply better.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, Betcoin refused to process my withdrawal today (Saturday) because they said “our managers are not in the office and only they can approve withdrawals”. There was nothing special about the withdrawal request; I had no bonuses, I had not been playing poker; I simply placed a sports bet, won, and asked for a cashout. The amount of money is only 300mBTC, not quite $100 USD.

    This is absolutely unacceptable; this delay serves no purpose. All of the other sportsbooks recommended at Bitedge have processed withdrawals for me in less than an hour. I strongly recommend that other players avoid Betcoin!

    Thanks,

    BernUnit

    Edit: I thought you’d like to know that my withdrawal was finally processed a little over 1 day after requesting it.

    I just signed up with Betcoin and could not find their bonus for sportsbook. Above you said 100% bonus. They said they do not have any bonuses for the sportsbook???

    Am I doing anything wrong?

      Oh that sucks, the bonus used to be for all products but now it seems it’s only for casino and poker. Thanks for pointing that out Asher, we have updated the information. Please see this page for a list of the best bitcoin sports betting bonuses.

    Betcoin is awful. I would never recommend them and you my friend should delete them. To many people saying that bets are not being credited and they are stealing from users. I noticed 6 bets out of a hundred i made in 1 week did not pay. Good thing i noticed this on a very large bet. They still told me all my bets were credited after i proved they weren’t.
