Cloudbet Online Casino and Sportsbook Review
Cloudbet brings us an even mixture of an online casino and a sportsbook. They seem to focus equally on both sides of the platform and the result is one that won’t disappoint players looking to use Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash to play in such games. Founded in 2013 they operated solely with Bitcoin until 2018 when they officially launched support for Bitcoin Cash deposits and withdrawals as well.
They are a licensed Bitcoin betting site by E-Gambling Montenegro, this allows them to reach customers worldwide except the United States and United Kingdom. All you need to sign up is a valid e-mail. In all honesty, while this license isn’t common among Bitcoin casinos, we don’t think this should be cause for concern, specially given the fact that in our searches we have found that Cloudbet legitimately carries out all its payments, even large ones! One such example of this was this thread on bitcointalk.org
When it comes to casino games Cloudbet has pretty much anything that would be expected from a top flight online casino. Slots, jackpot lotteries, poker, blackjack, baccarat… It’s all there. Live casino versions are present as well. There’s not a much information about game providers but performance isn’t affected. Graphic quality on some games is not the best yet it’s not enough to be a game breaker by any means. You can try all the games by yourself for free before you engage in any real betting, which is a nice feature.
Upon entering Cloudbet’s sportsbook you are immediately presented with a ton of information regarding different sports, trending events and featured bets. It may look like too much to take in during the first few seconds but after a while it’s a breeze to navigate through. Aside from the slightly clogged presentation and some longer than expected loading times the graphical design is very nice. The range of sports covers all the popular ones, except e-sports. You will also find that the variety of betting options inside specific events is what one should expect from a top sportsbook. We also liked the fact that they offer bonuses for bets on major ongoing events.
Cloudbet doesn’t have a distinct variety of bonuses and promotions, but the ones they have are quite generous. Currently they offer a Welcome Bonus of up to 5 BTC, one of the biggest ones in this market. When specific events are trending they also offer bonuses associated to those events. They had a 6 mBTC free bet bonus going on when the World Cup was ocurring so it’s a good idea to stay alert for these.
Deposits and Payouts
As we all know by now, operating with cryptocurrencies greatly enhances user experience when it comes to making deposits and requesting payouts. It’s faster and anonymous. Like we mentioned before, in our research into Cloudbet we found that larger payouts (> 1BTC) can take a bit longer to verify but they are legitimately carried out nonetheless.
There areno Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash withdrawal amount.
Should the need to contact someone from Cloudbet, this can be done through chat or e-mail. This is pretty much standard procedure on all the online gambling houses.
Cloudbethas everything you need if you want to play casino games, or do some sports betting on your favorite team using Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash. We admit we were slightly suspicious about the Montenegro license, but upon further inspection everything seems to be okay in the Terms & Conditions applied (yes, we read it). Although some graphical aspects are not the sharpest ones, functionality is not compromised anywhere in their platform. If the looks really do crank your gears then you can surely find some better options, but we can forgive Cloudbet on this one thanks to their generous 5 BTC bonus offer! Their sportsbook is absolutely great although the lack of e-sports will disappoint some few players.
If the shortcomings we mention here don’t put you down then absolutely sign up and give Cloudbet a try!
