Sportsbet is a modern and fun crypto sportsbooks. Their live betting in particular is fantastic! Sportsbet is from the same trustworthy team that runs BitCasino (review).

See our horse racing crypto betting guide for details on their excellent racing product.

User experience

The website is good. It has that app feel that makes it particularly strong on mobile. Everything looks good and works perfectly except navigation, that is finding the game you want to bet on, which is confusing.

For example when you click on soccer, a long list of every soccer game of every type from every league is blurted out, even international, club and womens games are not separated.

In any case the excellent predictive search is the quickest and easiest way to find the game you want. However it reveals another problem; sports and leagues which are not listed on any menus do have games available for betting but you can only find them in search, essentially making them hidden!

The bet slip a dream to fill out and bets are paid out very quickly.


Sportsbook's overround: 5.71%

50:50 equivalent: 1.9

There is quite a range here, some odds a very competitive while some are quite poor value. Be sure to check the odds comparisons.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Huge, everything down to Futsal and Volleyball.

Range of bet types per event: Quite large but it varies depending on how high profile the event is. NBA games get 37 different bet types, big soccer games get about 75.

Sportsbet has the equal best range of bets of all sportsbooks.

Live betting

Sportsbet’s live betting is simply the best! The in depth game stats are great but the streaming video takes the experience up to a whole nother level. Betting is consistently available, rarely becoming unavailable due to in game events (like one team scoring).

Even odds changes while you are betting are handled gracefully by the best slip. While other live betting platforms feel buggy and unstable Sportsbet’s is rock solid and really exiting to bet on!

Sportsbet has the best live betting of all sportsbooks.

Real life customer service test

Question: What happens in tennis bets on match winner if one player retires injured?


In case of retirement all undecided markets are settled as void.

Notes: This is different from the standard tennis rule so I checked on Sportsbet's betting rules and the customer service operator was correct.

    Hey, have you ever needed to give any IDs or do any KYC process stuff while using sportsbet? Was planning on using either nitro or sportsbet but sportsbet’s lines are better. Nitro has never asked for KYC, so my only worry is that sportsbet eventually will.

    • BitEdge

      I nor anyone I know has had to verify their ID with Sportsbet or its sister site BitCasino (review) (same owners and license).

      Having said that I am also concerned by reports that Sportsbet do require ID more often than other crypto sportsbooks. They seem to be leaning in the direction of government currency sportsbooks, given they now accept government currencies. It could be that they feel they need to be stricter about IDing users to keep their banking partners and licensing authorities happy.

      But what I think is more likely is that they ID users who they honestly think are trying to defraud them, particularly bonus fraud.

      It’s a fact that is more private and anonymous than Sportsbet, but I think it’s worth the trade off and happily use and recommend Sportsbet.

    I like them, but their website is very taxing on your processor. It makes my fans spin like crazy! They need to simplify things.

    This is the most aesthetically pleasing bitcoin site out there. It blows cloudbet away. Being a golf bettor I can also say the outright selection is second only to directbet.

    I am now a member and I will start sending satoshi right away.

    Edit August 11, 2016
    I had a delayed payment on a stage win in the Tour De France but the communication from customer service during the process was outstanding. The bet was paid correctly within 48 hours and I cashed easily. I use this site in conjunction with for golf wagering. Nobody else compares for providing options in any sportsbook world, bitcoin or fiat.
    Great book. I have become a bigger fan.

    Edit September 17, 2016
    Very disappointed in American Football offering. No point spreads? That doesn’t make sense. Americans bet on football with a point spread. Period.

    Edit September 25, 2016
    Customer service responded to my earlier criticism about the point spreads. They were kind enough to give me a very generous credit which I promptly doubled in their blackjack game and then lost on a sure thing ML in American Football.

    They told me they would update me when they had fixed the “glitch” about not having point spreads. I noticed that day that there were some point spreads on the site. So I will be honest in saying I am not sure if they really fixed anything or just appeased a pissy American. Either way, they now have a nice offering with alternate spreads.

    Today I compared the Bills/Cards game. The -110 line is dead on at 4.5 at 5dimes but stronger that Nitrogen. The alt lines vary but are a little weaker than nitrogen and 5dimes.
    I am very pleased with their customer service and it looks like they are responding to the American market quite nicely.
