Since its launch last year, the website has been gaining a lot of attention in the online gambling world due to it being a strict cryptocurrency sportsbook.

If you haven’t seen a match of a women’s volleyball game then you’re missing out on one of the most intense sporting events Here at 1xBit.com, you are able to place wagers on those events with betting lines like Superliga, Pro A, Coppa Italia, PlusLiga, and South Korea Championship.
- Table Tennis – Table Tennis is clearly huge in Asian countries. But due to its unique game style, this attracted western players over the years. Though 1xBit.com doesn’t offer betting lines from all over the world, they focus on one region (at the time when this review was written) and that is Russia. They have the Moscow Championship Pro League lines which you are able to place wagers at.
Live – Their live tab contains “Bet on your National Team” this feature contains the available sporting events on your location based on the IP you are currently using. Here at 1xBitc.com under their live tab, you are able to bet on Live Cockfights happening in the Philippines where Cock Fighting is legal. If you are a fan but cannot bet on your country due to animal rights violations, then why not check this out and place your bets on the next match.
Their Live tab contains all the sporting events that they have that you are able to watch and bet at the same time. On this tab, we were also able to spot different eSports games that are being streamed live! If you have been looking around gambling websites trying to compare which ones are great or not, we would advise giving websites such as 1xBit.com credit for having the ability to stream live sporting events. Please be advised that not all websites have the capability to do so.
Mobile Betting – One of the great things about this generation is that we are able to bring online betting wherever we want to with the help of mobile devices. Mobile betting is becoming a huge market in the busy world that we live in today. 1xBit.com in partner with their developers has made this realization along with other gambling websites to have mobile Apps that can be of great use to gamblers all over the world. Now we are able to check on our bets, make bets, and visit the website whenever, wherever we want to with the use of the internet. Currently they only have an App for Android devices which can be downloaded here. They also have a mobile version of the website (without downloading the app) which can be accessed here.
Financials – If you’re wondering what this tab is all about them we’re here to explain it for you. What is it? We have thought about at least a 200-word explanation but this should be better, it is a tab wherein you are able to place bets on the current Forex exchange. Yes, all you need to do is select an asset that you want to place a wager on, select YES if you expect the rate to finish higher than the selected RATE or NO if you expect the rate to finish lower than expected. If you’re big when it comes to reading FOREX, then this tab should easily be your playground.
Forex – Yes, we know. It is weird to find a trading platform in the middle of a gambling website. That was our first reaction when we saw this under the “Financials” tab. Make a deposit or use the money to trade that you have won in their casino or sportsbook, it’s actually your call. Come to think of it, placing a Forex smack in the middle of a gambling website is pure genius! People that love to gamble, will definitely love this place!
The available casino games that we are able to look into were scattered in different tabs that are located on the main page. These tabs are Live Casino, Games, TV Games (a lot like live casino), and a separate tab for their in-house Poker tables.
Their Live Casino games boast games from providers like Extreme Live Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Ezugi, PortMaso, Lucky Streak, XPG, Asia Gaming, PornHub Casino (Yes, this is not a typo), Vivo Gaming, and Grand Virginia.
Of course, their live games casino includes the usual casino staples like Baccarat, Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, and numbers games. I have always been a huge fan of Evolution Gaming and Asia Gaming since they have the prettiest dealers.
Their Games tab includes all the games that you find in an online casino. From Card Games, Board Games, Slots, High Odds (Bonus slots), and a lot more! They also have a Provably Fair Dice game in the house if you are in the mood for some Dice games. This can be accessed through this link. The dice game that you are able to play with is just the same with any other automated dice games out there today.
Here at 1xBit.com you are able to play with different Poker tables aside from the ones that they offer under Live Casino and TV Games. With their Poker tab, players are able to choose from different tables and play against different players as well. To select a table, you only need to click on any listed active tables and select which buy-in you prefer to play at. This is a great place to get your Poker fix if you’re not in the mood for some live poker games.
Their casino is a myriad of slots, table games, live games, and other casino games that you might expect to find in a fully-functional online casino. Despite being a Sportsbook at the same time a casino, you wouldn’t find an assortment of this caliber anywhere on the internet. If you are into Bitcoin Slots – you can find a big selection of bitcoin slots on this website.
Let us ask you a question, would you rather gamble on a website without any bonuses? Or would you definitely choose the ones with “money back” promotions? We know what your answer would be and it is just economical to choose the ones with bonuses, who wouldn’t want to get a part of their money back? Today, we will be looking into what their available bonuses are.

Due to its “money back” nature, people are easily lured into creating accounts and depositing money just to double their deposit value.

Security and Anonymity
A secured gambling website is everyone’s dream, who wouldn’t want a secured gambling environment? Well, unless you’re going to win outrageous amounts of money for little bets (illegal) then you might take the bait. But if you are just like us, honest gamblers, then you might want to settle for a secure website to bet on, correct?
Let’s talk about anonymity first. The ability to place bets without compromising your personal information is what people have in mind these days. With the use of crypto currency as a way to pay and bet for games, it is clear that this website has anonymity in mind. With that being said, you are easily able to create an account with their “One Click” feature that only asks for an email address and nothing else. Once you have provided an email, an account number will be provided and a random password to go with the new account. Now you’re in! No hassle in providing your location, address, phone number and whatnot.
When it comes to security, their website traffic has been encrypted, which at least gives protection to people that are transacting with them. The interesting thing is that they do not have a two-factor authentication option under their accounts. Has this been left out or are they in the process of getting one integrated into their system? If you guys know about why they do not have such security feature added into their website please do let us know in the comments section below.
Customer Support is a vital feature that all websites should have. They have a really active Live Chat support system that replies almost instantly if you need any help. Aside from their live chat support, they also provide email contacts if you do not mind waiting for a reply or just too busy to be in a live chat conversation. Below are the email addresses you can contact them with.
- General Queries – email@example.com
- Security Department – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Public Relations and Advertising – email@example.com
- Partnership Questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
These are the customer service channels that we are able to use to contact them. Though it would have been nice to have phone support; the mentioned options above are more than enough.
How to bet with 1xBit.com
Now we’ve looked into most of the features the website has to offer, it is to take a step back and know how to place a bet with their sportsbook. How do we place a bet? First, we need to create an account with 1xBit.com by providing a valid email address, and that’s it! You also have the option to register via phone or social network if you wish to do so. Once logged in, follow the process below.
- Click on “Sports” or “Live” tabs found on the main menu.
- Select a sporting event from the left column.
- The odds and markets can be seen in the middle of the screen. To add a bet, just click on the selected line and this will appear on the bet slip which is located on the right column.
- If you are able to select different bets on the slip, select which type of bet you want to go with: Accumulator, System, or Chain bet.
- Once number 4 has been done, select or enter your wager amount and press “Place a bet”.
- If the bet has been placed, a separate pop-up window will appear with the details of your bet. Confirmation of the bet will then automatically deduct from your account.
Congratulations! You have now manually placed a bet. To review all your bets placed, all you need to do is go to the “Recent Bets” tab under My Account and go to Bet History. If the bet has been won, this will automatically reflect on your account.
One Click Bet – I’m sure you guys would remember that this website offers one-click registration right? Aside from a lightning-fast registration process, they also offer fast bets for easier access. To activate the one-click bet, all you need to do is tick the box that says “One-click bet” which can be located on the upper right corner of the central information box –just right beside the bet slip. I know it’s really hard to find, here’s a screenshot to help you out.
Once this box has been ticked, enter your wager amount and then select apply. A pop-up window saying “The stake is set” will show up confirming your pre-generated wager amount. The activation of this feature will allow a customer to place bets with just one click on the selected odds. Please be advised that once this feature has been activated, no confirmation is required and bets are placed automatically with just one click. To disable the feature, just uncheck the box that you ticked earlier.
This feature can be helpful sometimes and a pain in the head if you do not use it properly. All bets made are final; this means that when this feature is turned on, you better not click anywhere. Just to be safe, if you think your system is lagging, do not apply this as wrong clicks usually happen with unstable internet connections.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Getting your money in and out of the website is fairly easy due to the fact that they only accept cryptocurrencies for their services. But what do they accept aside from BTC? They accept payments using Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Dash, Ethereum, Monero, ZCash, GameCredits, NEM, Byetecoin, Sibcoin, DigiByte, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, FunCoin, BitShares.
If you want to deposit money into your account, just click “DEPOSIT” which can be found on the upper-left corner of the website (need to be logged in). The next thing you want to do is select a crypto currency you want to deposit and the system will provide you with a unique deposit address straight to your 1xBit.com account. Withdrawals are basically the same with deposits since they also provide the same options for you to take your money home.
What people are saying about 1xBit.com
We’ve come to the most interesting part of the review, “What people are saying about” this website? For us, it is really important to know what people are saying about a certain website we are reviewing to get a fair share of what this website is all about. We cannot simply assume that when a website has great features, they are automatically legit and do not have any problems when it comes to paying up. With this being said a lot of issues when it comes to gambling websites circle around the issue of unpaid wins.
I’m sure that you have come across these claims yourself and would think that winning in these casinos is more than a risk than being an advantage. Come to think of it, you really do not want to win because you might encounter these problems at hand with the withdrawal issues. We’ve come across this thread post in Bitcointalk.org about a person not being able to receive his/her winnings.
This issue just happened earlier this year which might have already been resolved but no signs of the original poster giving us an update, which makes this issue horrifying. Without any update on this issue being handled by 1xBit.com, we suggest to keep an eye out for their withdrawal issues.
1xBit.com Pros and Cons
- Live streaming
- Accepts Bitcoins
- A lot of promotions and bonuses
- Fast registration
- No deposit and withdrawal fees
- No baking payment options

This website has a lot of features and gambling opportunities that an online gambler would definitely love. The reason why we were so impressed with this website is that they have a lot of sporting events listed, they have a fully-packed casino, and they offer crazy cock fights from the Philippines! If you are a fan of using cryptocurrencies to bet online, then this should be one of your destinations. Without the negative comments about withdrawal issues, we wouldn’t find it hard to bet on this website.Go to 1xbit.com
