Sportsbet.io Review – Excellent Sportsbook

Sportsbet.io is one of the most significant cryptocurrency bookmakers on the market. It allows you to bet with Bitcoin – and it has a setup very similar to typical European bookmakers, making the transition from fiat to crypto easy.

During the last few years, Sportsbet.io have been gaining more and more influence on the betting market. This is mainly due to its increasing number of sponsorships in professional sports, but also due to the fact that more players are becoming interested in betting with Bitcoin.

If you want to learn more about Sportsbet.io, you can read our review here. If you’re ready to sign up immediately, you can support our site by doing it through this link right here. Otherwise, let’s look into the many benefits of Sportsbet below!

How it works

Sportsbet.io is a Bitcoin bookmaker – or a cryptocurrency sportsbook if we look at it more broadly. That means you can deposit, bet, and withdraw with cryptocurrencies.

This brings several benefits (as well as downsides). The good things are that you don’t necessarily have to share any sensitive payment information such as a credit card number, or sharing your bank details: You can also bet anonymously, while deposits and withdrawals are ultra fast. The downsides are that you will have to exchange for crypto if you don’t already own any. And obviously, that must be done before you start using Sportsbet.io.

Bitcoin is the main cryptocurrency, but it is not the only one. You can also use Ethereum, Litecoin, USDT and Tron.

Aside from the aspect of using cryptocurrencies and betting anonymously, Sportsbet.io feels very much like a regular bookie. It has a European-styled setup with a platform that is easy to navigate. All of the betting options can be found fast, either through searching or simply by clicking on your preferred sport when browsing the platform.

It is also possible to deposit and withdraw in fiat money (traditional currencies such as the Euro, etc), but only in selected countries. However, it is a bit impractical to do that, and most players do elect to bet with crypto – since the acceptance of crypto is what makes Sportsbet stand out from many of its competitors.

Signing up with Sportsbet.io can be done in a matter of seconds. You only need to give your email address, select a password, and agree to the fact that you are over 18 years old. Then you need to confirm your email, and you’re ready to deposit and bet!

Aside from being a sportsbook, Sportsbet.io also has a pretty fun casino.

Odds

The odds are quite average on Sportsbet. They are not bad by any means, but they are rarely at the top of the market either – with some exceptions. You can generally expect Sportsbet to take a 5% wig with an average payback percentage just shy of 95%. On selected games, you may find higher odds, and be sure to look out for promotions. On niche sports the payback percentage can be lower – we advice you to go to Sportsbet and check the odds manually for the particular sport you like to bet on.

On American sports such as football and basketball, you will typically see lines priced at 1.909 (or -110 in American odds). You can bet moneylines, spreads and totals + some occasional player props and futures. The odds seem to be the best when you bet on spreads and totals.

In world football (soccer) the odds are slightly higher. For example, most Premier League handicap lines will be priced at 1.92 (-109) on average. Outright betting is a focus point for Sportsbet.io and the odds are better than most competitors when it comes to outrights.

Tennis and E-Sports are some other popular sports, but you should expect the wig to be slightly higher. Sportsbet.io has somewhat low odds on these sports, but can sometimes be priced inaccurately, so it is definitely possible for the player to get an edge. Especially with E-Sports, due to the many different dynamics – even though the wig is usually between 7-8%.

Game selection

As mentioned, you can bet on all the most popular sports in the world. Soccer, tennis, E-Sports, American football, basketball, baseball, boxing and ice hockey are all represented on Sportsbet.io and there are plenty of options for each of them. Sportsbet is fast to provide odds for each game and event, so we are very impressed by the game selection.

Aside from the most popular sports, you also have the added possibility of betting on several niche sports. It is also possible to wager on politics – which is found under the category “Specials”. Sometimes, you can even bet on entertainment, such as award shows and other tv-shows.

We really can’t complain about the game selection in any way. They have almost everything, so if you want as many betting options as possible, Sportsbet.io needs to be in your bookie portfolio! Every bookie has room for improvement, but Sportsbet is pretty close to perfect here.

Limits

Due to the nature of being a crypto bookmaker that allows you to bet simply by signing up with email and depositing crypto, Sportsbet.io is not quite as harsh as the mainstream KYC bookmakers on the market.

It takes a lot before a player will experience personal limits. It will typically only happen if you are abusing faulty lines – and theoreticaly, it might also happen if you have a huge edge on a smaller sport or market. If you bet on big soccer leagues, the NFL, NBA, NHL, or such, there seems to be a very low risk of getting limited.

Since accounts are anonymous, it is theoretically possible to create a new account if you get limited. However, we refer to Sportsbet.io’s own rules since it could be against policy to have multiple accounts or to have more than one account in the household. Read up on that and make sure you are following the rules before doing anything.

However, the risk of personal limits appear to be much lower with Sportsbet.io than with other bookmakers so we can only rate them highly here.

Bonuses

There isn’t any welcome bonus on Sportsbet.io, but they do have a lot of regular promotions for their existing customer base, so it still makes sense to sign up.

For example, they have occasional quizzes and prediction competitions where you can win a share of some selected price pools.

There is also a VIP program where you earn benefits along the way. An example of a reward could be free bets and price boosts. All new players actually get one price boost for each sport. That is worth taking advantage of. The VIP program also gives you the chance to win specific real-life prizes. One example from the past was when Sportsbet.io gave some selected VIP winners tickets to the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix.

So while there isn’t any big cash bonus as you would find with some other bookies, there are some good promotions after all. Winning tickets to major sporting events though the VIP program certainly offers value and potential to the steady player.

Layout and navigation

Sportsbet.io has to be one of the easiest bookmakers to use.

The layout is very smooth on the desktop and it takes seconds to access any sport. So this is a huge plus. Furthermore, the dark design is very pleasant to look at, especially at night. In case you don’t like it, there is actually a function that allows you to change the design yourself.

It couldn’t really be done any better. It is also very easy to manage the user account. In general, everything is easy and straightforward.

Mobile

On mobile, it works just as well as it does on desktop.

While Sportsbet.io doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app in the market we were testing, the platform is well-optimized for mobile – you just have to go to your browser and visit their site. So if you prefer betting on your phone or tablet, it is no problem at all. Sportsbet.io allows you to do this with ease and comfort.

Customer service

If you need any help from customer support, you can open the live chat at any time you like. Usually, you will get a fast response within minutes, but it might take a day or more to resolve bigger issues – which is expected from most sportsbooks, of course.

Sportsbet.io doesn’t currently have phone support, but you’re probably used to this if you’ve used crypto bookies in the past. Everything works through live chat and email.

If you don’t need any specific help, but if you just want to learn more about how Sportsbet.io works, you can enter the Help Centre where the support section has answered many of the most common questions. For specific requests, try to contact them through live chat or email. We rate their customer service highly, but they need to offer phone support to get the top rating.

Deposits and withdrawals

You can choose between a variety of different cryptocurrencies for your deposit. Most people use Bitcoin since it is the most commonly used coin of them all. But aside from Bitcoin, you can also use Ethereum, Litecoin, USDT (Tether), Tron + others. Your deposit should be credited immediately after you have received confirmation on the blockchain.

In some countries, it is also possible to use fiat money such as BRL, JPY and others. The USD is not accepted. Here you will use your credit card or an e-wallet such as Skrill or Neteller. But keep in mind that you will most likely have to go through a KYC check when doing this – we didn’t test with fiat deposits, only crypto.

Withdrawals are also fast and easy. When using crypto, there is no minimum. They previously had a processing fee of 1.95% which was bad news. But from what we can see, there are currently no fees on crypto transfers, aside from those you would encounter on the blockchain itself.

It is not possible to change between cryptocurrencies in your balance. For example: If you deposit in Bitcoin, you can’t exchange into Ethereum on the site.

Conclusion
