1xBit Dice Review
Privacy and Security
1xBit first ran a government currency site, 1xbet. Instead of just adding crypto transactions like a lot of government currency sites have, they chose to make a stand-alone end-to-end crypto site.
There are many different gaming options for bettors:
- Dice game
- Sports betting and live betting including a betting exchange, horse racing, trots, greyhound racing and cockfighting!
- Casino including live casino, XXX games and games like rock-paper-scissors and Russian roulette
- Poker room
There is a cool slider to select your target range. That means rather than just betting to roll over or under a number you can also bet to roll in between or outside any 2 numbers, for example, you can bet to roll in between 25 and 75.
There is a nice 3D dice graphic to display the result. The auto-betting bot is good too.
The max-bet is an absurdly low 13 m฿. I suspect 1xBit decided to start with a very low min-bet and then made the max-bet a multiple of that. It’s so low, that it eliminates running most betting strategies or just having a big exciting bet.
1xBit has the most detailed and complete auto-betting bot available. It starts with a range slider; this is a novel and visual way to set the top and bottom of the range of numbers you hope to roll. You can also set this the standard way by entering numbers into input fields.
The bot displays your chance of winning and payout odds.
These first things are redundant as they are present on the normal, not auto-betting interface, and the settings you set in one place are automatically applied to both places.
The other auto-betting settings are:
- Base bet
- A number of rolls (optional)
- In case of a loss or a win you can
- Return to base bet
- Do not change your bet
- Increase bet by a %
- Decrease bet by a %
- Switch between betting over or under, e.g. switch from betting over 50 to under 50
- Stop loss or stop profit (optional)
Unfortunately, the auto-betting experience is partly ruined by the ridiculously low 4 m฿ max-bet matched with the incredibly low 20 satoshi min-bet. This means you can run betting strategies but not win meaningful amounts in a short time.
The website is cluttered and clunky, trying to cram too many things into one 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 and some parts of the site are actually pretty cool.
Just finding the dice game is an example of this: it’s buried away and there is another game called “Dice” which is not the one you are looking for (you are looking for “PF Dice”). However, after you find it for the first time, you will find it easily from then on.
It’s a pain that you have to transfer funds between your main balance to your dice balance and back for no good reason. In the dice game your m฿ balance is tracked to 7 decimal places (which is impossible, m฿ only has 5 decimal places) then when you want to transfer out of dice balance you can only transfer amounts to 2 decimal places so some dust will be left behind.
1xBit has the trust advantage of being a large and long-running business (long-running as 1xBet, before crypto).
1xBit has the same betting platform at multiple URLs. The main one is 1xbit.com but they also use and link to addresses like 1x-bit.com and 1xcrypto.com. This is confusing and insecure.
Unique deposit addresses: Not available.
Confirmations before play: 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 too high, at 5 m฿! There is no withdrawal fee so this policy may have come about when bitcoin transaction fees were very high. 1xBit supports a huge range of 18 different cryptos.
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: it is all right if you are asking a question about 1xBit’s products and rules. 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 and ask you to email support instead.
Real-life customer service test
Question: How many confirmations do a Bitcoin deposit need before it can be used to bet?
Answer: Deposit via Bitcoin may take up to 24 hours depending on the priority you have chosen. There is no confirmation limit, however.
Notes: This is incorrect and shows a lack of understanding about Bitcoin transactions. After I tried to explain 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.
Information required at signup: Email address.
2-factor authentication: Available.
Players in the United States of America are geo-blocked by 1xBit.
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. It’s nice that the terms and conditions are explained fully and clearly.
The main reasons to use 1xBit are if you want to use altcoins or if you want lots of different kinds of gambling from the one account, like sports betting and casino, as well as dice.
Even if that applies to you the higher-ranked options on this site are much better.
