1xBit first ran a government currency sportsbook, 1xbet. Instead of just adding bitcoin transactions like a lot of government currency sportsbooks have, they took the right choice and made a stand-alone end-to-end bitcoin site.

There is a lot going on here

  • Dice game.
  • Sports betting and live betting including a betting exchange, horse racing, trots, greyhound racing and cockfighting (review)!
  • Casino including live casino, XXX games and games like rock-paper-scissors and Russian roulette (review).
  • Poker room (review).
  • Binary options and financials (review).

The sports betting is decent, everything else is bad.

Dice game

There is a cool slider to select your target range. that means rather than just betting to roll over or under a number you can also bet to roll in between or outside any 2 numbers, for example you can bet to roll in between 25 and 75.

There is and a nice 3D dice graphic to display the result. The auto betting bot is good too.

The max-bet is an absurdly low 4 m฿. I suspect 1xBit decided to start with a very low min-bet and then made the max-bet a multiple of that. It’s so low it eliminates running most betting strategies or just having a big exiting bet.

User experience

The website is cluttered and clunky, trying to cram too many things into 1 place. There are too many options and they dont always work as expected.

We did not like it at first but it grows on you as you use it. You will not feel disorientated after you figure out where things are and how they work and some parts of the site are actually pretty cool.

Just finding the dice game is an example of this, its berried away and there is another game called “Dice” which is not the one you are looking for (you are looking for “PF Dice”). However after you have found it the first time you will find it very easily ever other time.

It’s a pain that you have to transfer funds between your main balance to your dice balance and back for no good reason. In the dice game your m฿ balance is tracked to 7 decimal place (which is impossible because a whole bitcoin only has 8) then when you want to transfer out of dice alce you can only transfer amounts to 2 decimal places so some dust will be left behind.

Trust

1xBit has the trust advantage of being a large and long running business (long running as 1xBet, before bitcoin). The site’s obvious Russianness might put some people off.

1xBit has the same thing up at multiple URLs. the main one is 1xbit.com but they also use and will link you to things like 1x-bit.com and 1xcrypto.com. This is confusing and insecure.

Transactions

The minimum withdrawal is way to high, at a huge 10 m฿! There is no withdrawal fee so this policy may have came about when bitcoin transaction fees were very high.

Your account currency can be bitcoin or 10 different altcoins. You can  then deposit and withdraw with bitcoin or 20 different altcoins which will be converted into your account currency.

Customer service

Customer service channels available:

Live chat and email.

Speed of replies: Live chat usually reply instantly but are slow to actually help, or sometimes they just forget about you. Emails are quickly replied to.
Accuracy of replies:

Okay if you are asking a question about 1xBits products and rules. Bad for anything else.

They are not knowledgeable about crypto and they are useless if you have a bug or issues. Live chat will waste your time getting nowhere then ask you to email support instead.

Real life customer service test

Question:

How many confirmations does a bitcoin deposit need before it can be used to bet?

Answer:

Deposit via Bitcoin may take up to 24 hours depending on the priority you have chosen. There is no confirmation limit however.

Notes:

This is incorrect and shows a lack of understanding about bitcoin transactions. After I tried to explain the number of confirmations is not a limit but rather a requirement they will have set, probably between 1 and 6, the customer service staff would still not get the correct information.

Privacy and security

Bonuses

100% first deposit bonus up to 1000 m฿. The funds go into your account gradually as you bet and you can easily opt-out.

There are several different bonuses and special offers depending on your interests. It’s nice that the terms and conditions are explained fully and clearly.

Overall

The main reasons to use 1xBit are if you want to use altcoins or if you want lots of different kinds of gambling from the one account, like sportsbetting and casino, as well as dice.

Even if that applies to you the higher ranked options on this site are much better.
