Payment is not automatic. This is why it sometimes takes 5 minutes, sometimes 2 hours, sometimes 12 hours. This is mentioned on our front page. You have to understand that we cannot be handling payouts 24 hours a day because people need to eat and sleep too.

If you're talking about yesterday's Champions League games, the payment was done in 10 hours after the games had finished. I understand that people can get worried about their bitcoins, but please be patient. We process payments always as soon as possible, there is no reason for us to withhold payments for any time.

Try to understand that we get a lot of bets each day and night. Those payouts don't happen in a matter of seconds and there may be delays in the Bitcoin network as well. I have now processed all of yesterday's NBA and NHL bets in about 6 hours after the earliest match ended, so I don't think that time frame is unreasonable by any means.

Oh, I wish it was automatic, that would make my life so much easier! But there are so many modifiers involved and possible exploits, so I don't know if that's possible to do at the moment. I do agree that in general terms we can, and we should, make our payouts even faster.

The idea behind the 12-hour payment is that, no matter what happens, we can process payments at least twice a day, and not give people unrealistic expectations. According to my recollection, we have never taken 12 hours to complete payments, and 10 hour delays have now happened twice, usually payouts are much faster than that. When it comes to the NBA and NHL, we prefer to process those games all at the same time once the last game has finished.

If you look at traditional sportsbooks, they usually credit your account pretty quickly, so that you can make another bet. But if you want to spend that money elsewhere, you first have to make a withdrawal request that can take days to complete. So in that sense I think our 12-hour policy is quite good to the players.

An odd question, but do you think you'll have anything for the NBA All-Star weekend? I'd like to bet the Rising Stars game tomorrow, and it's always fun to put a few bucks down on the competitions.

Yeah, we'll have the Rising Stars game up early tomorrow and we'll also cover the main game. Not sure that we can do the other competitions but in any case, you'll see the games posted on our front page once they become available.

Nice to hear Smiley Rising Stars game is now online, as is the actual All Star game that's on Sunday. You can also bet on the MVP of the main game. And don't forget about the weekend's NHL games, we've reduced the juice for a bit to get more action there since the NBA regular season is having a break!

There was initially a mixup between East and West teams, it has now been fixed. Unfortunately that meant that we had to void and refund one bet that was already placed for the All Star game. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Have you guys put in any consideration of adding college basketball games? I know totals aren't found on some sportsbooks, but most have spreads.

Sorry for the delay. I think we are able to add more leagues to our selection, so the question is... what or which leagues? I know NCAA basketball is very popular, but like you said I can't guarantee that all games and selections will be available every night. I'll take a look into it anyway.

Don't forget NBA returns tonight with 9 games, we'll have those odds online very soon!

[edit] Forgot to mention that we've added more goal and goal scorer selections to our Champions League games!

Bettors certainly seem to think so. Glad to see more interest towards "traditional" football!

How about something like games only on national television? That wouldn't be too hard, and that's the games most people bet.

blockbet.net works nicely.  However, one big complaint.

You need to use a different address for each match.  I am using the bitcoin wallet and when I send coins, the label part is auto filling in because I have labeled that address already.  This is very annoying as it makes keeping track of your wagers in the transaction log more time consuming.   

Other then  that it is pretty good so far! 

Now, if you would get NHL Team totals, first to score prop and puck line then I would not need to bet anywhere else. Currently bit365 offers NHL team totals and more options then blockbet Sad

Yeah that could be one way to do it. Just don't want people to get disappointed if their game isn't playable. We're updating the site again, so let's see if we can add that.

You need to use a different address for each match.  I am using the bitcoin wallet and when I send coins, the label part is auto filling in because I have labeled that address already.  This is very annoying as it makes keeping track of your wagers in the transaction log more time consuming.  

Yes, this is the downside of our system. It's not really possible for us to create 100+ new bitcoin addresses every day because it takes a lot to maintain them.

Now, if you would get NHL Team totals, first to score prop and puck line then I would not need to bet anywhere else. Currently bit365 offers NHL team totals and more options then blockbet Sad

We're adding more goal selections to the NHL today. However I don't think it's smart for us to try to add every option just because somebody else is doing it too, we try to stick to the most popular bets and avoid cluttering up the site.

just to make sure i'm doing the parlay right, say I want BTC.2 on options 31 and 50, the amount to send would .20003150, right?

Yes, but we didn't get such a bet yesterday. Instead we had 0.20000315, which was read as "03, 15" and that bet didn't win. Another bet was 0.2000055, which seems to include only one selection. I'll refund both of these for now. I know the system is a bit complicated but that's the cost for not needing an account to play.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, keep playing!

[edit] Wait a minute, maybe it's just my client that cut off the last zero on that parlay selection. In that case it's a winning bet!

I see I got credited for it, thought I screwed it up somehow. The last zero got cut off because of the .001 transaction fee I'm gonna guess. Any way around this to avoid confusion?

 It'd be sweet if the Bundesliga and Serie a leagues were added if/when economically feasible.
