Introduction to Cloudbet

It’s pretty clear that Cloudbet’s unique selling point is its preferred payment method. After all, you can hardly avoid the mention of Bitcoin the second you step foot through the virtual doors of this bookmaker. However, what is also clear is that they are not content with merely resting on their laurels and letting this be the sole reason to use their site.

This is a Bitcoin operator that clearly wants to compete with any kind of betting site when it comes to quality, from its welcome bonus to its top-tier site design. This not only immediately provides a clear sense of professionalism and class, but does so in a way which is as fun as it is stylish. It also shows off just how much they have to offer. And what exactly do Cloudbet have to offer? Well, let’s take a closer look.

Bonuses, Bets & Promotions

It’s often the case that bookmakers which have a niche seem to think that they don’t have to make the same kind of effort we expect from any and all online betting sites. However, we’re happy to say that’s not the case with Cloudbet. Not only do they have promotions but they have a pretty generous amount too.

We’ll only be looking at a sample here but it should be enough to give you an excellent idea of the sort of thing to expect. However, don’t be surprised if some of the promotions we discuss here have been changed, replaced or discontinued, as that is very common with bonus sections. A lot of sites like to keep these pages fresh with new offers and especially with sports promotions, which tend to be time-sensitive by their nature.

In order to provide you with an idea of the type of quality to expect, we will of course be bringing up some terms and conditions, as they make up a huge part of whether a bonus is worthwhile. However, this is meant to be an overview and we will not include the full terms and conditions here. They can all be found on the Cloudbet site itself. With that and mind, we may as well start at the beginning with that welcome bonus we already mentioned. Cloudbet promotions100% Deposit Match BTC Bonus: This is slightly more complicated than similar welcome bonuses but still easy enough to understand. Simply create and confirm your account and make your first deposit, with a minimum deposit of 0.01 BTC. Your maximum bonus is 5 BTC. The release of these Bitcoins works through their loyalty points scheme, at a rate of 0.01 BTC for every 800 loyalty points. The formula for the loyalty points is explained in greater detail on the site itself but it follows a basic principle of stake x price score for the sportsbook.

Money Back Monday: The principle of this promotion is pretty much explained in its title. If you make a deposit on Mondays, you can receive some of your money back if you lose on the live casino. You’ll get 25% of your losses back up to 50 mBTC.

Turnover Tuesdays: This is about as straightforward as it gets. You can receive a free spin for every 2 mBTC bet, with free spins being capped at 100 per player.

You may have noticed that with the last two examples, there’s a bit of a theme going on. In fact, you can get bonuses that are specific to four days of the week at Cloudbet, at the time of writing. We will say that a few more sportsbook promotions would be appreciated but this is still far and above so many of their competitors.

Betting Markets

Another area where Cloudbet certainly doesn’t scrimp is in its betting markets. You’ll find a huge amount of sports to bet on available here, many of which are available to bet on live too. You can even bet on things like entertainment. Not only are plenty of sports covered but the scope within those sports is generally pretty large too, with leagues available in many from all across the world and throughout different levels. It’s not just the big events that are covered here but many more niche and left-field betting options too. Cloudbet betting selectionOn top of that, there is, of course, the casino and live casino, although we will say that a lack of e-sports is a slight disappointment.

Mobile App

Although there is no mobile app for Cloudbet, the site does appear to work perfectly well on mobile devices during our usage. We can’t find too many reports regarding other people’s experience with the mobile site but we can say that everything we tried appeared to be working smoothly. Of course, a dedicated app would be preferable but it doesn’t appear as though you’ll find many issues should you want to access Cloudbet while on the go.

Live Streaming & Virtual Sports

The surprises just keep on coming, as Cloudbet actually has a huge amount of live streaming options to choose from, whether it’s German football in the Bundesliga, basketball in the NBA or tennis in the Australian Open, to give but some examples. It’s hard not to be hugely impressed by that kind of offering. Cloudbet live bettingOne thing that does appear to be missing here though is virtual sports. Whether that is an issue for you depends on the type of betting experience you are interested in.

Payment and Withdrawal Methods

There are few prizes for guessing what the preferred payment method is here. Of course, Bitcoin is a huge part of the reason people choose Cloudbet over its competitors. And we have to say that they make it as easy to understand as they possibly can, with lengthy sections on how to deposit with the online currency, even including an illustrated guide. It really is very extensive and should do a lot to put your mind at ease if you are unsure about utilising this cryptocurrency.

Customer Support

Just as their explanation of how to use Bitcoin is excellent, so is the rest of the support that Cloudbet has to offer. Their FAQ, blog and all sources of information are top-class. And if you still don’t find the answer to your question, then you have 24/7 live chat coverage with what we found to be a helpful and quick to respond support team. Cloudbet supportNot only that but you don’t need to sign up to speak to them. This means that if you want to ask questions while still deciding whether to join – the answers for which may perhaps seal that decision – then the Cloudbet team are on hand to help. We suppose there could be some more contact options but we think that the vast, vast majority of users will be more than satisfied with what is available here.  

Reliability and Security

This Bitcoin betting site is licensed under E-Gambling Montenegro and Curacao eGaming, with full information available on the site. Alongside the licensing information – and a lot of other details too – is an excellent security section. This explains how the two-step authentication works, how information is kept safe in “cold storage”, as they put it, and also their very extensive privacy policy. All in all, Cloudbet might be one of the finest examples of a betting site having everything you could want to know available easily at hand.

On top of that, Cloudbet has a reputation as a Bitcoin operator with very competitive odds and also provide a link to help encourage responsible gaming amongst its customers.

Cloudbet Summary

There are a few things that are notable for their absence at Cloudbet that we simply couldn’t ignore, such as the lack of e-sports and virtuals. But if that isn’t something that is an especially vital part of your betting experience, then there’s very little to fault here for a Bitcoin betting site.

Of course, that is something that is absolutely intrinsic to whether you would be interested in Cloudbet or not. If you want to use other payment methods, then obviously this won’t be suitable for you. If, however, you want to use the cryptocurrency, then it’s among the best out there. It boasts a great website, is easy to use, explains itself brilliantly and has a ton to offer across both sports and casino. Even its promotions are good.

Cloudbet has carved out its very own space in the online gaming world and it will take some very tough competition to challenge it.
