Nitro Betting is a new bitcoin only sportsbook from the team at Nitrogen Sports (review). That raises questions in itself;

  • Why is Nitrogen running 2 sites?
  • What are the differences between them?
  • What will happen to the old site?
  • Et cetera.

We go into all of that with a backstory here, and it’s not good.

The site also has a good poker room, identical to the one on Nitrogen Sports. But unlike Nitrogen Sports there is no dice game.

User experience

As a brand new site there are a few bugs here and there. For example text sentences missing words, the menu not being displayed at some screen sizes, the top and bottom of the betslip being split witch is hard to use on large screens, and things like that.

The site has a nice and fun design on desktop but feels a bit busy and overcrowded on mobile. The user experience is better than Nitrogen Sports but not as good as the higher ranked sportsbooks listed here.

Odds

Sportsbook's overround: 4.97%

50:50 equivalent: 1.91

Nitro Betting’s odds are better than average and very consistent.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Large; all the way down to floorball.

Range of bet types per event: Small; just winner, spread and totals for most games.

Live betting

The range of events open for live betting is good but the interface and features are basic. The only information for each game is the clock and the score, there are no stats. Half the events have a little live stream icon but nothing happens when you click it. There is no cashout feature or fun factor.

Transactions

Unique deposit addresses: Generated automatically.

Confirmations before bet: 1.

Withdrawal time: 5 hours.

Player to player transfer: Not available.

Customer service

Customer service channels available: "Live" chat, on site contact form and email.

Speed of replies: "Live" chat takes about an hour to reply. On site contact form takes about 4 hours.

Accuracy of replies: Live chat refer you to email support. We got an inaccurate reply to our email but it was followed up 15 minutes later with an accurate reply.

Real life customer service test

Question:

I thought I would get 3 first deposit bonuses, one for sports, one for slots and one for poker. But I claimed the poker one and now the others are not available, is it only one?

Answer:

please submit your inquiry to Help@nitrobetting.eu

Notes: We asked a simple unrelated question later and got the same response.

This is probably the same staff who provide Nitrogen Sports customer service which leaves a lot to be desired.

Privacy and security

Information required at signup: Email address.

2 factor authentication: Available.

One thing Nitrogen Sports never wavered on through all their ups and downs is good privacy and security and it seems Nitro Betting will continue this tradition.

Geo-targeting

Bettors in Costa Rica and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland are geo-blocked by Nitro Betting.

Bonuses

100% first deposit match on sports betting only or slots only or poker only. Also if your first bet loses you get a free bet of the same amount.

Overall

This is the first site for which we have ever had to ask “Why do you exist?”. And the answer is because Nitrogen were not able to make their other site better, which points towards incompetence, anyway we go into all of that in this blog post.

If you are in the USA then Nitro Betting is one of your best (read “one of your only”) options because the better crypto sportsbooks listed here do not accept American bettors. If you are not geo-blocked by those better sportsbooks then of course you should use them instead.
