Playbetr Token PBR

Playbetr is a government currency sportsbook that allows crypto deposits and withdrawals. It uses its own in-house token (PBR) – a stable coin tied to the value of USD. Deposits can be made with a number of cryptocurrencies, as outlined below, and will be automatically converted to PBR. Withdrawals can be made as normal using any of the available cryptocurrencies. We’d much rather use an end-to-end crypto sportsbook, which is why we’ve given Playbetr a low score.

Playbetr offer a simple sportsbook with an average casino linked to the same balance. They have an almost identical site layout to their partners Betcoin (review, American bettors are geo-blocked). They offer a wide range of sports to bet on, with a decent sized max bet and average odds. They also have a just okay casino (review).

User experience

Playbetr’s website itself is very simple, but pretty easy to use and navigate around. The leagues are arranged in a confusing way down the sidebar, with the major leagues first then seemingly in order of continents and/or how popular they are. This makes it tricky to find the league you are looking for.

The betslip is also no frills, but functional and does exactly what you want it to do.

The mobile site is slow and harder to work your way around than on desktop. Icons are used to display sports, but some aren’t obvious meaning finding your sport can be a bit of a game in itself.

Odds

Sportsbook's overround: 5.82%

50:50 equivalent: 1.89

The odds are around the industry average, major soccer and American football matches have around 5% overround, while minor leagues and sports have an edge of around 6-7% or greater.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Really good, with nice skiing and winter sports options.

Range of bet types per event: Varied - around 100 for major soccer leagues, but only 40 on NFL and 15-20 on tennis matches.

Live betting

Playbetr’s live betting is a stripped back version of other sportsbook’s offerings. The stats on display are basic with only goals, corners, and cards shown. There is no interactive pitch informing the bettor who has the ball or is attacking. It’s also lacking a cashout feature which other crypto sportsbooks do offer. There’s no live streaming, even for esports.

Bets are placed relatively quickly and odds changes are dealt with well. Generally betting is available and doesn’t remain suspended for long periods.

Transactions

Unique deposit addresses: Available.

Confirmations before bet: 1.

Withdrawal time: Four hours.

Player to player transfer: Available.

Playbetr uses its own in-house token (PBR) – a stable coin tied to the value of USD.

Customer service

Customer service channels available: Live chat, emails and ticket creation.

Speed of replies: Live chat respond within half an hour. We got no response to our email.

Accuracy of replies: Answers are short and to the point, but usually have the correct information or told to create a ticket.

  • 25% (up to the value of $500)
  • 10% (up to the value of $200)

Overall

Playbetr is a government currency sportsbook that allows crypto deposits and withdrawals. End-to-end crypto sportsbooks are always our preference, hence the low overall score.

They offer a functional and reliable sportsbook. There aren’t too many glitches or bugs on the site, but that may be down to just how simple the site is. The range of sports they have on offer is impressive.

If you’re after a basic and easy to understand betting experience we would recommend Playbetr. However, in reality there are much deeper and more engaging options available.
