Realistically they aren't close to an "A" rated book. If you look at their thread, they have down time and grading problems on a daily basis. Their rating should be "C-"

It seems that many people promoting DirectBet haven't played at other books. If you compare DirectBet to other books there aren't any advantages to playing at Directbet other than not having to deposit.

This is actually a negative since there are more steps in making a bet with DirectBet causing players to get shut out at DirectBet more than any other book.




Along with Nitrogen they are in fact the only book deserving to be even close to an A grade. So what they have downtime? I wouldn't say these are on a daily basis but yes they have become more frequent lately. Grading problems are to do with the odds providers, not the sites themselves and are unavoidable, although, having bet at DB for almost a year, I've never had to wait more than an hour for a payout. I bet several times a day.

I actually use many books but DirectBet is the best for me. I don't see how no deposits is a negative either and I think that further emphasizes your obvious bias against DirectBet. Bet transfers are "seen" by their system in 99% of cases for me within 5-10 seconds.

Along with the "negotiate" option when live betting you have no risk of misplacing bets, and the only risk of losing funds is if the book runs away whilst your events are in progress. For me, the no deposit thing is probably the best invention a sportsbook could use and eliminates most of their ability to shut up shop with a lot of money in their pocket.

That's a massive plus. Like I said, Nitrogen is the only book that is close to DirectBet as things stand and this is plain for most to see. It's time you put your childish feud with DirectBet to bed, Peeps.

Instead of insults, let's stick to the facts. Please list all the advantages that DirectBet has over other books.

The downtime isn't recent. It's an ongoing problem.

Hi, I have a bet which says Bet Status : Settlement in Progress but I still haven't received it.

It has been almost 2 hours now, even when my wallet says 3 confirmations completed for the initial bet.

I don't know if this is still a problem but a player posted a parlay ticket at DirectBet. The parlay showed the total risk/win amount but didn't show the odds of each leg. If one leg pushes the player should know the price of that leg to properly calculate the winnings.

Part of the reason for so much downtime at DirectBet is lack of man power. If another site goes down, they have multiple programmers to fix the problem. Most of the other sites have experienced gamblers as part of their team. DirectBet is still learning on the job.

I seriously hope the best for DirectBet but as stated in a previous post, they are an amateur operation. They aren't close to the quality of the other books.

"I seriously hope the best for DirectBet..."
Good one.


I or anyone else could compile a similar list of complaints for every other book here, although it would be most difficult to do so for Nitrogen.

Every other book has had just as many if not more complaints re: being offline; withdrawal problems/amount of time to receive withdrawal; etc.
Such a list would be easy to compile for anonibet.

No btc book should be manual withdrawals, and there should never be a daily period of 8 hours or more where one cannot receive a withdrawal.

I'm not going to waste time rehashing all of this, but Grumpster is 100% correct and anyone with at least a room temperature IQ who has been following all of this realizes that he's 100% correct.

To say nothing of the ongoing issue of them offering a non-sustainable bonus, seizing funds for bonus abuse without defining bonus abuse, etc., etc.

we can pick holes in every book but have to look at the totality.

With the seizing of funds on that one person I asked him if he wanted help. He didn't want help thus I couldn't look at his account. From the little that I did see that was posted in the Anonibet thread, he was making 1.01 bets. I'm not sure how Anonibet calculates rollovers, it could be the lessor of the risk/payout.

Since I don't have permission to look into the account, it has to be considered a non-factor.

edit- Besides that, you have to look at the credibility of the poster. The player posted a lot of misinformation.

The downtime isn't recent. It's an ongoing problem.

IMO, the only advantage directbet has is live betting. I haven't had any problems with downtime or getting paid from directbet in the past but their odds are TERRIBLE compared to nitro. I got bored of sports betting and to busy with other things so haven't been to directbet much in the past few months so can't comment on recent downtime and payouts.

Directbet also appear to have a bunch of shills, not sure if they're getting paid with free bets or what. Either shills or people who haven't bet anywhere else so wouldn't know how bad their odds are. Include them in a poll and watch those shills vote them to the top  Cheesy I remember seeing a poll where they beat primedice and a couple of other sites combined. Which is pretty hard to believe considering primedice alone has a good amount of supporters who are more active on this forum and their chat.

any book got mma props?

Directbet typically offers a few, usually on only the main card. They typically offer bets on winner by decision/tko/submission bets. They do not offer round bets or over/unders though. Nitrogen offers o/u and straight winner bets only. Anonibet typically only offers straight winner bets and only on a handful of the fights that are available.
If you find one let me know, I'd be very interested in getting in on it.

yeah i didnt think there was really any site that had them but i had to ask thanks for the info

I agree with most of what you stated. DirectBet does make things entertaining with the shills.

JETWIN – FUNCTIONALITY UPDATE
Fixed BTC exchange rate for the withdrawal of funds

JETWIN was the first Bitcoin bookmaker company to offer its customers accounts not only in BTC, but also in the traditional currencies, such as, USD, GBP and EUR. Deposits are made quite easily – they are instantly processed and the customer knows the exact exchange rate, as it is indicated on the deposit form. However, the situation with withdrawals is different. Only 95% of the payouts are made instantly, and, moreover, the system uses the exchange rate that is actual at that moment when bitcoins are physically sent to the customer, and not the one fixed at the time of the request. This means that the gamer is unable to foresee the exact exchange rate for the withdrawal.
This situation has raised many questions among customers, and the main requirement was as follows: the customer must know the exact currency exchange rate at which the funds will be converted during the withdrawal. Considering all the above, we have decided to improve the situation by implementing a new logic as to how the withdrawal process should be changed. As a result, we made it possible for the customer to decide upon the fixed exchange rate that funds should be converted at during the withdrawal, regardless of whether the transaction is instant or not. The customer should confirm the exact amount when filling out the withdrawal form.
In addition, we have updated the design of both deposit and withdrawal forms by making them simpler and more comprehensive for the customer.

Contact us
Should you have any queries regarding our recent system update, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Support team via e-mail. They will be pleased to assist you

Grumpster has "Warning: Trade with extreme caution! " under his name. He has about as much credibility as the directbet shills that ruin just about every gambling thread on this forum.

Maybe Peep is petty about it, but Directbet is just as petty. You can tell Peep doesnt intentionally derail threads like directbet did with the "user rated" thread.

And directbet has to be no deposit because no one is going to trust a site that looks like a 14 year old designed it in 1998. Plus their odds are horrible. Throw in the fact that they fucking waste my time when I'm trying to find real information on this scam filled site with all the shills directbet pays. I hope Directbet is permanently banned from this thread forever. Any other decent forum would have banned directbet long ago for spamming.

Anonibet sucks too. Peep should downgrade them.

I deposited 1.4 bitcoin on anonibet 2 weeks ago, placed 4 player proposition wagers at max bet (.5 bitcoin), won 2, lost 2, then last week, my max bet was lowered to .1 bitcoin, so I tried to cashout my 1.3 bitcoins and it was saying invalid pin code, so after a quick email response(they are very quick), they said I had to enter my pin code(which I never even setup in the first place) in order to cashout, so after another email, they reply: The pin code setting is a feature that was installed in order  protect customers account therefore it will take at least 72 hours for the pincode to be disabled etc..., so after 120 hours go by with no response, I try to log onto my acccount and it won't let me login saying: "sorry, your ip location seems to be from a country with legal restrictions on gambling...etc", now they're telling me to use a VPN service? so, last night, I had my friend(who lives .5 miles from me w/ same zip code) open an account, and he had no problems with his IP, and he doesnt use VPN, so this login restriction thing seems bs...

When you talk to your friend again have him type in http://www.whatismyip.com/ or http://whatismyipaddress.com/. It will show his location. It would be interesting to see the location of the corresponding IP.

The last 24 hours at DirectBet


Quote
why is it that everytime I try to bet on your site..! It goes down on maintenance n Im not able to bet.! #totallydisappointed

Quote
it could be just a coincidence, although in this week , directbet has actually alot of downtime that cause the customer to be inconvenient, but the fact that you always cant bet is a coincidence that you better when the site is on maintenance

Quote
Betting was suspended for a few minutes while we upgraded our automated betting system.

Quote
directbet can you please have all odds 12 hours before your games so we can bet on games we want,i cant bet on games i want because there are a lot of games that i can pick in that game,really anoyed with it!!

Quote
Please sir reply to my PM , help me last time , i wont ask for help from next time, you are a great admin please help me

Quote
I agree as well,people who want my bets need the odds for my picks,and i currently cant give my picks because i dont have any odds on those bets,and i always see bets couple of hours before those matches,but i need them for example 12 hours earlier,for example i need the odds for nba matches that are tonight so i can post those picks

Quote
Who is the Direct Bet's odds provider? If the odds for a particular event aren't available it's likely the odds providers haven't released them for the general public yet?

Quote
Germany budes league betting market 2 is not available why ??

Quote
Our data providers are currently experiencing an outage and as a result most sport bets are not available.

We will update you later as soon as this is resolved. Please accept our apologies

I have no problem with Directbet
but betvip (deposit arrived only 10 hours, withdrawal took more than a half day , wrong +/- sign handicap display)  
betcoinsports (this week:  bets graded after half day, could not bet more than 1-4 hours: always error; withdrawal took more than 24 hours,  i got it only after contact support)
jetwin  (limit your account very fast, a lot of arbs )
anonibet  (low limit , max winning 0.5 BTC  , no tennis handicap and a lot of markets missing )
webetcoins ( bets never graded, no answer , no withdrawal)

I can only suggest nitrogentsports, cloudbet and directbet (they have fix limit and instant withdrawal)
Instant withdrawal is a key.
Do not deposit too many btc to those bookmakers that have no instant withdrawal. (within 10 minutes)

You can calculate the average daily number of the placed bets on most of these sites, just place 2 bets (this Friday and next Friday) and betids will show how many bets were placed. ( average daily =  (NextFridayBetID - ThisFridayBetID) /7  )

You cant take those sites seriously that have only 1-100 bets daily.  (and in business more than half a year)
If only 1-3 professional gambler or arber register to such a site , bookie will run out of BTC, it is only a matter of time, but it wont happen because bookie will disappear (or limit every winning user account) instead of  being insolvent.
