Hi everyone. Anyone knows of some good blogs/sites where author/authors review all kinds of casino sites, especially casinos that accept bitcoin and possibly other crypto, but not necessary. Mostly  interested in european gambling sites. I'm sorry if this request is too vague, but I have to start somewhere I guess.

Unfortunately almost all "gambling review sites" are based on 1) how much the casino owner pays them for the review 2) how much the affiliate commissions are 3) pretty much randomly giving ratings without proper arguments 4) which casino literally owns the review site (yes this happens.) I would not trust any of them.



That is the main reason why I made a site that lists "dice sites" (the most popular bitcoin gambling game), based on statistics only and shows only factual data. This is: https://dicesites.com Definitely check the "Weekly top 10" out, it shows how popular a site is "lately" which is a pretty decent indication of a good site to me.

Currently I am working on a new version to make it more friendly for gamblers though (the current version is limited and not perfect.) Also this is only for "dice sites", if you are interested in sports bets you will obviously need a whole different list of sites.




I guess I mostly meant to say to not trust any overview or review much and search for like bitcointalk threads of the gambling site too (almost all bitcoin gambling sites have threads here.)



PS, we also have a cool mechanism on most bitcoin gambling sites, that enables you as a player to verify if you have been cheated in a bet or not, called "Provably fair". You can read a bit more about that here: https://dicesites.com/provably-fair Still you must trust the site with your deposit obviously, but at least you can verify if the casino has been playing fair Smiley

nice site NLNico. It would be awesome to have something like that about bitcoin casinos in general, not just dice, but I see why that could be difficult.

Btw why does prime dice have such big advantage over everyone else? And why pocketdice isn't listed on your site?

PrimeDice is listed highest on the "Weekly top 10" and they are normally listed #1 in the "main list". Unfortunately their stats got reset (on their side) so that's why they are listed much lower right now. I might fix it on my side, but I was hoping they would fix it on their side Tongue

But yes, I do believe PD is the most popular bitcoin gambling site. I am guessing mostly because they have been around for a pretty long while, got a good/trusted reputation (don't remember any real issues), have a site that works good, been pretty good to the community w give-aways, etc.




PS, most non-dice sites (casinos) are not very transparent and don't always have "public bet lists" or statistics. Also for example "casino FortuneJack" has faked their statistics before (they adjusted it after I showed proof of that.) Dice sites are generally more transparent, so that's why I only list them atm. There are other games that are equally transparent though, for example (also 1 of most popular bitcoin gambling site) bustabit.



edit: ah misread about "pocketdice". But I don't list "pocketdice" because their provably fair implementation is flawed and they didn't fix it yet almost a year after "keepinquiet" reported that to them: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1077905.0 I do not really think they really cheat, but it should be easy enough to fix that.

I am starting a site, www.bitcoingambling.club it will be mainly about Bitcoin betting on sports and esports news, but for now I am starting to do some basic reviewing for the frontpage(landing page), maybe it can be useful, they didn't pay me for doing it, although I put some referral links, and the website still needs work.

The problem with those websites is that they are usually bias because they have an affiliate program with the webmaster. So they arne't going to give bad reviews. Most of those websites always give reviews of 95%+ or higher.

The best bet are the forums because you can read what others are saying about the website.

Due to the nature of sites coming and going it will be hard to find a site with honest reviews. They get kickback in affiliate payments and click per pay through the links they offer.
Do not know much about casinos but could give you sportsbook site forum if you are including that in casino play?
