Stake came from the team at Primedice (review), one of the oldest and most trusted crypto gambling sites there is. Stake has long been one of the best crypto dice sites (review) and HTML5 casinos, now they have added a fantastic sportsbook. Stake is a full featured dedicated sportsbook, not a casino with a sportsbook squeezed in as an afterthought.

One great feature is the smallest min bet and largest max bet in the industry. At the time of writing the min bet of 100 satoshis is less than $0.01c USD, less than 1 cent! This is perfect for testing new betting and staking strategies  you are working on. Meanwhile the max bet on regular events is more than $50,000 USD!

User experience

The design is beautiful and intuitive on all devices. You will never be confused or left looking for something that is not where you expect it. Everything works and flows perfectly. The dark theme allows for long sessions in total comfort. The community chat is always active and helpful with the sports betting chat kept separate from the casino chat.

Stake has the best user experience of all sportsbooks.

Odds

Sportsbook's overround: 4.8%

50:50 equivalent: 1.91

The odds are good value and competitive. Like everywhere, the live odds have quite a bit more overround built into them than the pre-live odds do.

Range of bets

Range of sports, leagues and events: Great. All the sports and esports are there, we are only missing horse racing.

Range of bet types per event: Huge, over 100 different markets on the big soccer leagues.

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

Live betting

The live betting is wonderful. You get a clear detailed scoreboard, real time odds changes and rising/falling odds indicators. The cashout feature is the smoothest and easiest we have ever used.

The coverage is very comprehensive including minor sports and leagues.

Transactions

Unique deposit addresses: Not available.

Confirmations before bet: 1.

Withdrawal time: Instant.

Player to player transfer: Available.

You can deposit with any of the hundreds of cryptos supported by Coinswitch and have it converted to any of the half a dozen main coins of your balance.

We love the max withdrawal button which saves you from having to enter your full balance down to 8 decimal places.

Stake has the best transactions of all sportsbooks.

Customer service

Customer service channels available: Live chat and community chat.

Speed of replies: Nearly instant.

Accuracy of replies: Good, staff are well trained and knowledgeable.

Real life customer service test

Question: Hi, what is "Vault" in the cashier box?

Answer:
You can think of the vault as a separate personal bank account. You can store funds in there that you don't want to play with. Also in case you suspect your account has been compromised you can store funds in it since a confirmation from your email is required to withdraw them from the vault.

Privacy and security

Information required at signup: None, not even an email address.

2 factor authentication: Available.

Stake has the equal best privacy and security of all sportsbooks.

Geo-targeting

Bettors in Australia, Cuba, Curaçao, the Czech Republic, France, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Italy, Korea (Democratic People's Republic of), Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the United States of America and Venezuela (Bolivarian Republic of) are geo-blocked by Stake.

Overall

Stake is a fun sportsbook to bet on with good odds, huge max bets and tiny min bets. The sportsbook is close to perfect and as a bonus you get great dice and casino games to play from the same account balance. The overall high quality of operation and how everything just works lets you know you are in good hands and your funds are safe.

      > do you know any fiat money bookmakers who has similar odds like Stake?

      Not specifically but Pinnacle and Betfair exchange would be the obvious places to look.
