Choosing the right bitcoin sportsbook
1) Decide what’s important to you
Do you have preferred sports to bet on? Do you ocassionally like to play a game of dice or blackjack when you’re not betting on sports? Do you prefer live betting while watching the game on your couch?
As the bitcoin industry (and subsequently, the bitcoin gaming industry) continues to expand, bettors are offered more and more choices for where to bet their bitcoin. Naturally, some sportsbooks excel at certain aspects and lag behind on others. We are here to help you decide which sites best match your betting style.
2) Check the sportsbook’s reputation
You may have decided on the right sportsbook that is offering everything that is important to you, but if the sportsbook has a shady reputation, then it is best to avoid it. Because of the lack of regulation around bitcoin, and the inherent anonymity of the currency, it is still completely within the realm of possibility that a sportsbook doesn’t pay out withdrawals or even close up shop and keep their customers’ money. It is best to err on the side of caution when picking a sportsbook by going with a site that has a trusted, established reputation.
3) Make sure that your sportsbook allows players from your country
Due to the still-murky regulations surrounding bitcoin, some sportsbooks have chosen to restrict players from certain countries (usually the U.S.). Make sure that the sportsbook you are considering accepts players from your country before doing too much research!
