Having formed back in 2013, Cloudbet is one of the older crypto betting sites. With so much experience, I expected a lot from the bookie, and the first features I searched for were the following:

Languages: An international operator needs to offer a decent number of languages. Cloudbet certainly delivers, with 18 languages, namely: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Swedish, Dutch, Greek, Hungarian, Polish, Turkish, Russian, Portuguese, Indonesian, Korean, Japanese, and Thai.

Cryptocurrencies available: There is an incredible selection of 28 crypto choices available.

Regular currencies: It’s slim pickings here — only Japanese Yen and the US Dollar are available. However, I don’t see it as too much of an issue as Cloudbet’s main focus is betting with crypto.

When evaluating a bookie, the primary consideration should revolve around its legitimacy and trustworthiness. Through my comprehensive Cloudbet review, I can confirm that it is a completely legitimate platform, and its credibility is also backed by the many great reviews from punters who’ve used the site.

One positive comment that kept cropping up was the speed of withdrawals, often taking less than two hours. The same was said for deposits, which transferred instantly.

Cloudbet Security

All the best Bitcoin sports betting sites prioritise their security, and Cloudbet is one of the more secure crypto betting sites I’ve reviewed. They have a number of systems in place, including KYC requirements as well as Anti-money Laundering (AML) policies, to keep the site safe.

Licence

Cloudbet VPN

In my Cloudbet review, I tested football betting using a VPN from five countries spanning four continents and encountered no issues at all. The best VPN betting sites should let you switch to any country you choose, and Cloudbet does this seamlessly.

Looking to provide the least amount of data possible for your initial registration? Cloudbet only asks for an email, nickname, date of birth, and password to register — alternatively, you can use your Google, Facebook, or Bithub accounts.

Once that’s completed, you’ll need to confirm your email address. This part took longer, and I had to wait a total of 10 minutes, resending the email twice.

Once this step is complete, you’ll need to enter a few details including a nickname, your date of birth, and general interests.

Depending on your selections, you’ll be given a Cloudbet welcome bonus which applies best to your interests. From then on, the Cloudbet login process is super simple and intuitive.

Opening a Crypto Wallet

Once all your details are filled in, you’ll be directed to make your first deposit and open your crypto wallet. It’s fairly straightforward and you’ll be given a deposit address to send crypto to. Sites like Binance are great choices to send crypto from.

Cloudbet Crypto Welcome Offer

If you're on the hunt for a lucrative welcome offer, Cloudbet is the perfect place for you. Few bookies are as generous, offering a first deposit bonus of up to 5BTC. The allure of this offer really is incredible — a 100% deposit bonus that essentially doubles your initial funds to kickstart your betting journey.

There are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You can only claim the bonus using the select currencies available for deposits.
  • The minimum deposit is 0.001BTC or the equivalent in any other currency.
  • To collect the bonus points you have to play casino games and earn points.
  • Each 150 points earned is worth 0.01BTC or its equivalent.

Cloudbet Loyalty Club

Who doesn’t love that added bonus for being a frequent bettor? Cloudbet do it amazingly, providing a number of tiers depending on how often you bet. It was one of the highlights of my Cloudbet review.

Cloudbet Sportsbook Review

With 28 sports to choose from, including five virtual sports and a dedicated esports page, Cloudbet's sportsbook is pretty jam-packed, so much so that the home page may seem a little overwhelming.

I conducted some payout calculations from a number of events, and the average payout is between 94% and 95%, which is decent, but could definitely be better. Football betting has some of the top overall odds, placing it among the best crypto betting sites.

Design & Usability

The site is pretty simple to use and while some pages may seem slightly cluttered, the majority are quite sleek. I especially enjoyed the ease of navigation thanks to the top bar as well as the ‘My Account’ dropdown menu.

Unfortunately, a dedicated Cloudbet mobile app doesn't exist, but accessing the site on mobile is a great option. Navigation might be slightly more tedious but the overall quality still makes it worth trying out.

Cloudbet’s customer service is what I’d describe as a mixed bag. There doesn’t seem to be a recognisable FAQs section but there is a blog with many useful posts.

The main highlight is their 24/7 live chat service. To access it, click on your account icon and select ‘Live Chat' from the drop-down menu. They got back to me with an answer within two minutes and were very helpful.

If you’re looking to diversify your crypto betting, Cloudbet is the right choice for you. It offers a vast range of payment choices and an exceptional welcome offer, making it one of the better crypto gambling sites I've had the pleasure of reviewing. Happy punting!

Cloudbet is owned and operated by Halcyon Super Holdings BV, and is situated in Curaçao.

Cloudbet is a completely safe and legitimate site to use, and holds a gambling licence by the Curaçao Gambling Commission.

Gambling using crypto currency is perfectly legal with Cloudbet unless you’re betting in a country/territory which bans cryptocurrencies or gambling in general.

This may occur due to maintenance being done on the site. This doesn’t happen often and shouldn’t last long at all.

Cloudbet accepts 28 crypto currencies to bet with, namely: Bitcoin, ADA, Algorand, Avalanche, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Coin, DAI, Dash, Deogecoin, Polkadot, EOS, Ethereum, Fantom, Staked ETH, Chainlink, Litecoin, Polygon, PAX Gold, Shiba Inu, Solana, Tron, USD Coin, Uniswap, Pax Dollar, Tether, Stellar, XRP and Zcash.
