1xBit first ran a government currency sportsbook, 1xbet. Instead of just adding bitcoin transactions like a lot of government currency sportsbooks have, they took the right choice and made a stand-alone end-to-end crypto sportsbook.

There is a lot going on here

The sports betting is decent, everything else is bad.

User experience

The website is cluttered and clunky, trying to cram too many things into 1 place. There are too many options and they don’t always work as expected.

We did not like it at first but it grows on you as you use it. You will not feel disorientated after you figure out where things are and how they work. The sportsbetting parts of the site are actually pretty cool.

The bet slip itself is an example of this, it has way to many details and confusing options on it but after placing a few bets through it you get used to it.

1xBit has the same thing up at multiple URLs. The main one is 1xbit.com but they also use and link to things like 1x-bit.com and 1xcrypto.com where you login is preserved. This is confusing and insecure.

Odds

Sportsbook's overround: 5.08%

50:50 equivalent: 1.9

In general 1xBit’s odds are mediocre however there are times when they are very good. Be sure to use the odds comparisons. You can get fantastics odds on the betting exchange because they only take a 1% commission. However the liquidity is quite low making it hard to get large amounts on this way.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Best we have ever seen, from chess to sailing to reality TV shows and everything in between.

Range of bet types per event: Huge, hundreds of bet types available on major sports.

Live betting

1xBit has a huge range of events and bet types available for in play betting. The basics work well and there are nice features like live video streams, bet insurance and the ability to 1 click trade out of your bets by selling your bet slip. However these extra features are a bit finicky and not always available.

Transactions

Unique deposit addresses: Not available.

Confirmations before bet: 6 for casino games, 1 for everything else.

Withdrawal time: Not instant but less than 1 hour.

Player to player transfer: Not available.

The minimum withdrawal is way to high, at 5 m฿! There is no withdrawal fee so this policy may have came about when bitcoin transaction fees were very high.

1xBit supports a huge rang of 18 different cryptos!

Customer service

Customer service channels available: Live chat and email.

Speed of replies: Live chat usually reply instantly but are slow to actually help, or sometimes they just forget about you. Emails are quickly replied to.

Accuracy of replies: Good if you are asking a question about sports betting on 1xBit. Bad for anything else. They are not knowledgeable about crypto and they are useless if you have a bug or issues. Live chat will waste your time getting nowhere then ask you to email support instead.

Real life customer service test

Question: What is bet insurance and how does it work? How many confirmations does a bitcoin deposit need before it can be used to bet?

Answer:

The Customer can insure a bet in full or in part. Insurance can be bought for single bets and accumulators. Other types of bet cannot be insured.If a bet loses, the insured part of such bet will be refunded to the Customer.

Deposit via Bitcoin may take up to 24 hours depending on the priority you have chosen. There is no confirmation limit however.

Notes: The first answer is good, the second is incorrect and shows a lack of understanding about bitcoin transactions. Even after I tried to explain that the number of confirmations is not a limit but rather a requirement they will have set, probably between 1 and 6, the customer service staff would still not get the correct information.

Privacy and security

Information required at signup: Email address.

2 factor authentication: Available.

Geo-targeting

Bettors in the United States of America are geo-blocked by 1xBit.

Bonuses

100% first deposit bonus up to 1000 m฿. The funds go into your account gradually as you bet and you can easily opt-out.

There are several different bonuses and special offers depending on your interests, like the accumulator of the day bonus if you are into multibets or special esports bonuses.

It’s nice that the terms and conditions are explained fully and clearly.

Overall

1xBit does not have the quality and polish of the top ranked sportsbooks but it does have a lot of betting options that other sportsbooks don’t have. When we have had a specific, less common, bet type we wanted to make, 1xBit has often been the only crypto sportsbook to offer it, and the odds have been good.

they have one of the best crypto betting exchanges and live betting is decent. In general you won’t have any problems sports betting here.

You are more likely to have problems in the casino, poker room and around the rest of the site, its buggy and not as good as the sports betting.

    They closed my account with my balance.I played for a long time. I had no problem with small amounts. When the amount grew, they closed it because you broke the rules.Don’t ask which arid, you can’t get an answer As someone who has been betting for years, the last site you can trust.

    1xbit.com are a bunch of Russian criminals who will just steal your winnings, They will also try to scam you via email saying they have hacked your computer. Avoid at all cost.

  3. Fraud alert

    Fraud betting company.

    I have spoken to live chat minutes after i placed a bet , and Roda (service representative) has confirmed that the bet will be void in the live chat. The match has started 13 minutes before I placed the bet, I was in a similar situation where my bet was void last week so that’s why I immediately went to live chat however this time my bet lost so of course it wasn’t void it was a loss.

    Bets are accepted before the start of the event; the relevant date, starting time, and commentary shown in the Sports section are indicative. Any bet placed after the event has started for any reason will be deemed void. Thats what I was told the first time

    15866144493
    15866150165

    I have now been advised this,
    According to our specialist, the event started at 15:30 GTM based on the online broadcast. The game is deemed to be started since the Pick round. The start of the lobby, tournament analysis and advertising is not deemed as a start of the game. That is why the bets were calculated correctly.

    This is completely false and I have shown 5 pieces of evidence that all say the exact same starting time of 13:17
    -liquiepida
    -the actual game of dota program
    -both teams offical Twitter stating that the game is live as of 13:17
    -datdota (recognised dota stat website)

    1xbit are arguing that their broadcast of it started at 13:30 (all online broadcasts in tournaments are delayed) and they will not tell me what broadcast it is? Everytime I try get more information this is what I get in response “You have been provided with all information regarding this issue. If you do not have other questions, we will be forced to stop the conversation.”

    1XBIT is SCAM… had an account for 4 month now… 0.9 BTC on my account…. made 3 deposits…. last days I won some bets… now I am not able to login… livechat told me that account is closed and I should write an email to security@1x-bit.com …. no answer…. as long as you lose you are welcome… but if someone wins some bets and has more won than lose, they will close your account. So big attention here. 1XBIT SCAM! NOT SERIOUS! 1xbit id:80371497

    please do not even try to bet on 1xbit.

    firstly my deposited was “gone” after 1.5 hour chatting and mailing the funds were in my account.

    secondly, i placed an bet wich i had the possibility to cash out at 75% profit, but i didn’t 5 min later the bet was lost… but the game was still on. ( i betted on Team 1 has most goal attempts, it was 1-0 in extra time i placed the bet in minute 105 of extra time first half)

    the chat and mail tell me the bet was an bug of the site, but i had to read the “agreement” after this scammy apoligize they told me the bet was only valid for the first half of the game (min 0-45′) how on earth can i place an bet in minute 105′ for the first half?? this is really a big scam website, stay away, far away!

    It’s a RUSSIAN Casino-STAY AWAY, they keep your money, and 24 hours is a joke-they send email confirmations of receipt of funds, but then you cannot use them….AVOID at all costs, despite the very good interface

    Anyone playing here. Tons of bad reviews, mostly for not paying out the costumers. Is it true?
