There is no information about the establishment date and owner of 1xBit. However, it is most likely a Russian-based project, because whichever language you choose, some of the elements in the website are displayed in Russian. 1xBet resembles a gigantic gambling platform and offers a large number of services together. It mainly targets the players in Eastern European countries. 1xBit gives support to a lot of crypto-currencies, but it's not a true Bitcoin gambling site because it still implements country restrictions.
1xBit applies country restrictions, but it is not declared which countries they are. In our experiments using VPN, we saw that it blocked many European countries. Likewise, becoming a member from the United States is not possible. Eastern European and Middle Eastern countries are accepted, however. If you live in an accepted country, you can sign-up anonymously. ID verification is not required to make a withdrawal. Enforcing a restriction for Western Europe and the United States is surprising, since 1xBit doesn’t have a license.
User Experience and Design
The design of 1xBit is incredibly useless and absolutely impractical. So many services are offered and so many buttons are used that you cannot tell at a glance what you need to do. A different service is advertised all over the main page. Although the links placed at the top of the page make navigation a little easier, there is still a confusing overall look. The website can be viewed in 51 different languages, and we think this is some kind of a record.
1xBit site is encoded using HTML5 and therefore supports mobile operating systems. However, design issues continue to be present in the mobile version of the site as well. We can even say that on small screens it gets worse. There is a separate mobile app for Android, and we encourage mobile users to opt for this app. In the app, a different design is used and an ideal experience can be achieved. In general, page loading speeds are slow and some pages need more than 10 seconds to load.
Bonuses & Promotions
1xBit offers lots of bonuses to its members.
Welcome Bonus: New members can earn up to 1 BTC bonus for their first deposit. This is a 100% match bonus and you need to do the following:
- You must deposit a minimum of 5 mBTC.
- You must bet 40 times the amount of your deposit amount. (Not the bonus amount, so this is actually an advantage.)
- To complete the wagering requirement, you need to place sports bet(s) with a minimum odd of 1.60.
In other words, the welcome bonus only appeals to sports bettors and casino players cannot benefit from it.
Point Bonus: Every 10 USD bet you deposit gives you 500 comp points. After you reach a certain point total, you can convert them to casino chips. So you can win points by placing sports bets and use them in casino games.
Unfortunately, all other bonuses are only for sports bettors. There are no promotions for casino players other than a slot tournament. Although 1xBit offers a large number of services altogether, it focuses on sports betting and arranges bonuses accordingly. Another interesting promotion is "Bet Insurance". With this bonus, you can insure your bets for an additional fee, and you can get your money back even if you lose. The fee you pay will depend on the amount you wish to recover. For example, if you want 100% insurance for a bet of 10 EUR, you need to pay 5 EUR (50%) more.
Games on Offer
1xBit offers these services:
- Sports Betting
- eSports Betting
- Live Casino
- Online Casino
- Virtual Sports
- Casual Games (rummy, dice, dominoes, arcade games)
- Toto / Lottery
It is possible for a gambler to find everything he's looking for at 1xBit. Moreover, there is a very rich content under each category. For example, under the slot category, you can find games of 36 different providers. More than 1,000 games are available in this category. To tell the truth, this is a figure that many famous regular online casinos cannot even reach. You can find all existing casino and luck-based games at 1xBit. All games have Instant Play support but you cannot try them for free. None of the slot games support the provably fair feature. This feature is only offered in some casual games.
Under the live casino category, you can find 12 roulette and card games. You are allowed to place both live and regular sports bets. You can even watch live broadcasts of live bets, but your balance must be positive. However, it should be noted that all these services have an extremely poor interface. Casino games work seamlessly on all mobile devices.
1xBit does not have any license. It only uses 128-bit SSL encryption. We advise you to be careful as the owner is not known. A site that only accepts crypto-currencies, is not licensed, and does not provide any owner info raises some suspicions about security.
1xBit supports all of the following crypto-currencies: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, DASH, Ethereum, Monero, Zcash, NEM, GameCredits, Bytecoin, Sibcoin, DigiByte, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, FUNCoin, Bitshares, and xGox . So many currencies are supported, 1xBit resembles an exchange site! The minimum withdrawal limit is 10 mBTC but no information is available for the maximum limit. You do not need to pay any service charge and the withdrawal process takes up to 15 minutes. This is interesting because, despite the many currencies it supports, 1xBit still does not offer smart contracts.
You can also use the methods listed above to make a deposit. Minimum deposit amount is 1.00 mBTC. The process time is instant. Maximum deposit amount is not specified.

- Live Chat: Available 24/7, via the website. Click on the orange “live chat” button that can be found on every page to activate the feature.
1xBit offers a multitude of services and easily manages to appeal to all kinds of likings. Moreover, as far as we know, there is no other casino that supports so many crypto-currencies. But there are various design and security issues. We are not sure how it can manage to offer so many providers without a license. For example, you cannot see Netent games in any casino without a license, but 1xBit somehow still offers them, we're a little cautious about this. But overall 1xBit proves to be a trusted casino amongst the industry and a safe place for you to play!
