Min-bet and max-bet

For consistency, we use the highest max-bet and the lowest min-bet we can find with odds close to even money.

User experience

User interface and user experience elements such as

  • Intuitive design
  • Clear navigation
  • Layout and clarity of things like betting history and account settings
  • Site speed

A 10/10 sportsbook has easy navigation, a logical layout, and intuitive settings that are easy to bet on and load in under 3 seconds. We test all of this on desktop and mobile.

We use GTmetrix for site speed tests. The average speed of all crypto sportsbooks is 11.08 seconds and the fastest is Cloudbet at 8.1 seconds. This website loads in 3 seconds, thanks for asking!

Points are lost for things like intrusive casino ads, your preferences not being remembered, disorganized lists of markets, confusing bet slips and page load times over 5 seconds.

Odds

10/10 is given to whichever crypto sportsbook has the best odds. Other sportsbooks lose 1 point for every half % of the overround they have above the sportsbook with the best odds.

For example, at the time of the edit

Nitrogen has the best odds of any sportsbook with a 3.64% overround.
Nitrogen receives 10/10.

Cloudbet has 4.17% overround (half a % more than Nitrogen).
Cloudbet receives 9/10 (1 point less than Nitrogen).

Range of bets

There are 2 elements in this rating

  1. The range of sports, leagues and events available to bet on
  2. The range of different bet types and betting markets available per event

A 10/10 sportsbook offers odds on everything from water polo to chess and horse racing. They offer dozens of different bet types from the first player to score a 3-pointer in a basketball game to how many corners each team will take in the second half of a soccer game.

Live betting

We look for reliable in play betting specific features like

  • Live scores
  • Video streams
  • Cashout buttons to automatically trade out all bets on a market

Sportsbooks lose points if betting is unavailable too often during an in-play betting event

Transactions

There are 3 transaction types we look at, and those are:

  1. Deposits
    • Is it possible to generate a new address for every deposit?
    • Number of confirmations you have to wait before you can bet
  2. Withdrawals
    • Wait time
    • Fees
  3. Player-to-player transfers

A 10/10 sportsbook provides deposits, withdrawals and player-to-player transfers for any amount, instantly, with 1 confirmation betting available.

Sportsbooks lose points if:

  • Deposits require multiple confirmations before you can bet
  • Withdrawals are not instant
  • There is no way to generate a new address for every transaction
  • There is no player-to-player transfer available

Customer service

There are 3 elements to this rating

  1. What channels customer service is available through?
  2. The speed of replies from customer service
  3. The accuracy of replies from customer service

A 10/10 sportsbook has 24/7 live chat support with operators knowledgeable about crypto sports betting and their sportsbook. Email customer service answers questions in less than an hour, with the correct information. Customer service is also offered via social media.

Points are lost by things like giving incorrect information, slow response time to emails, undertrained staff and only having 1 method of contact available.

Privacy, security and transparency

There are 2 main elements to this rating

  1. How much personal information do they require? The less the better
  2. Is 2-factor authentication available?

A 10/10 sportsbook allows fully anonymous accounts without requiring an email address. Sportsbooks lose points

  • For every piece of information, they require on signup
  • If 2-factor authentication is not available

Overall

Combines all of the above elements plus things like the feedback from real bettors, fun factor, trustworthiness, positive input to the crypto community and if a sportsbook’s bonuses are worth taking.

18+ only. Gambling can be addictive, please play responsibly.
