BETTING PLATFORM (9/10)
Betcoin welcomes professional as well as recreational bettors and has a relatively good interface but we did find that it was a bit slower to navigate vs some of the other books we tested. Markets are separated into easy to find categories. The tabs at the top of the betting slip make it easy to add or subtract legs on a parlay or bet straight.
There is a ‘live now’ section on the right of the betting screen that makes it easy for bettors to be aware of what live betting options are available at the time. Their live betting interface is pretty basic and has a lot of flashing/ blinking boxes which doesn’t make it really easy on the eyes.
Since they are networked indirectly with Betcris and Bookmaker, you can expect Betcoin to have reasonably early opening lines. CRIS and Bookmaker are known for having some of the earliest posted lines and that effect is sure to rub off on Betcoin.
Betcoin offers strong betting limits that start at 2.5BTC for standard accounts. Professional bettors can email support and request an increase that extends most betting limits to 10BTC per bet. This is a very good betting limit and makes it a must have out for professional bettors.
Betcoin currently offers both parlays and teasers in their wagering options.
CASHIER/SUPPORT ANALYSIS (9/10)
Cashier times are extremely fast with Betcoin Sports.
On the deposit side, funds are available to be bet instantly when depositing with BTC (0 confirmation). Betcoin also has a great advantage in that it also accepts LTC deposits.
Withdrawals are sent within 15 minutes of a confirmation email response as two factor authentication. Betcoin has indicated to us that they are working on making the withdrawal instant after clicking a link in an email address.
That is pretty key, and it means when you want to deposit money in your account it will probably take a few minutes at most and instant withdrawals mean you can usually expect the money in your wallet with a confirmation within 1 hour. This is a huge value added option for bettors that like to move their money around quickly and shop for the best line.
Customer support has two options for contact:
- Live chat
The site is optimized for mobile but is reasonably difficult to navigate with ease. One of the problems is the constant flashing that occurs on the betscreen. When opening the homepage betcoinsports.com, there is a “last minute” section that shows the upcoming bets. There is constant flashing and we found that when we pulled down the menu to select other sports it constantly closed the sport selection menu due to the flashing
However, Betcoin has indicated to us that they are planning to release an app for both android and apple products, so hopefully their mobile product improves when the app can be released.
INSTITUTION HISTORY (10/10)
Betcoin has an extremely good backing and experienced bettors will recognize some of the strong partners behind betcoins.
Betcoin is affiliated with some of the largest online gaming websites including the BetCris.com and Bookmaker.eu which are some of the strongest traditional online betting sites. These websites have proven track records that experienced online bettors recognize.
