Already one of the biggest Bitcoin betting and gaming sites following establishment in November 2013, CloudBet has wowed analysts and players alike and they have quickly become incredibly popular. One of the new breed of Bitcoin gaming and gambling sites, it is powered by highly popular engine BetSoft. Though there is a casino, it is more geared towards sports betting.
CloudBet is an incredibly glossy website with some impressive visuals. Not really surprising as it uses one of the web’s most stable and best-known platforms. When using on a laptop or desktop computer, all you require is an up to date Flash Player. Flash is a major standard for graphic presentation, allowing great animations and visuals so you will not be asked to install untrusted third party software.
A downside to CloudBet is that it does not have the range of bonuses available to other sites. Indeed, it has only one – a 100% sign up bonus, which is generous for a sign up, but beyond this there is no real incentive to stay on the site. This could go against it in the long-run with some big names offering some very generous bonuses to both new players, new deposits and specific game bonuses. Sites need to offer extras to remain competitive and keep players coming back.
It does have an impressive array of casino games, though a small selection as this is more of a sport betting site, and most impressively there are live dealer tables. When you get bored with sport betting and want some variety, head on over to some of the selection of table games to try your hand.
Customer support is one of those things that perhaps we overlook a bit too often. Problems happen, and we want to know it will be corrected as quickly as possible for our convenience. CloudBet has limited technical and customer support, with only email option available. The lack of live chat option may frustrate some, but they are a quick response service and have been reported as amongst the most helpful support networks.
Hacking, they say, is impossible as deposits are kept in cold storage at the site. This extra security will certainly be a welcome feature, especially as it is juxtaposed against the need for an email address, which removes the element of anonymity that Bitcoin players prefer.
This is geared towards sports betting rather than casino, even though it has over one hundred casino games to add a bit of variety – you will find more choice elsewhere and the site is more geared towards sportsbooks. That said, the side is stable, attractive and easy to use and in that way, the casino element is still a better experience than some other sites. On the downside, their bonus system is not quite as generous as some other Bitcoin sites and you do need an email address to sign up (removing an element of privacy that BTC players crave).
