Betcoin are an ambitious crypto gambling site. 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.

User experience

Betcoin Sports is a bit clunky and disjointed. There are some frustrating bugs and moments of poor user experience. For example things not working as expected and multiple wallets and account areas.

 

Odds

Betcoin’s odds are sometimes 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

Live betting

Betcoin’s live betting is not bad except for random bugs. You get live scores and game stats on a large range of events. The esports live betting is really good, there are live streams with great commentary on all the big leagues.

Transactions

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.

Rather than offering solutions they very often instruct you to create a ticket about the problem.

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

Betcoin has the equal best privacy and 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 not all from 1 balance,) however 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.

    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.

    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 crypto sports betting bonuses.

    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.
