Opened in 2011, Anonibet claims to be “the first online sportsbook that accepts Bitcoin”. We do not know who the founders of the site are, but their servers are located in England. No currencies other than BTC and USD are accepted and more betting options are offered for international sports leagues compared to other betting sites. Surprisingly, the online casino category is also delivering satisfying content. The reason why we are surprised is that betting sites often ignore other categories. But for Anonibet, this does not seem to be the case.
You can register anonymously at Anonibet site. To register, you need to provide an e-mail address and a password. However, once you are a member, you cannot play with real money in the online casino category if you live in one of these countries: Cyprus, Denmark, France, Hong Kong, Israel, and the USA. No country restrictions apply for the betting category.
User Experience and Design
Compared to classic betting sites, we can say that Anonibet has a much more colorful design. Multiple color tones were used on the pages, and the cleverly placed menus provide a rather "spacious" look. The betting pages use the classic interface: The sports list is on the left, the detailed information is in the middle, and the betting coupon is on the right. All the games are listed in one place on the casino pages, but with advanced search features, you do not have to worry about finding a game you are looking for. In general, we can say that design is fun, useful, and practical. There is no problem with navigation.
Anonibet is a site that has HTML5 infrastructure, so it can be displayed easily on mobile devices. There's no mobile app, but you don’t need one. Regardless of your operating system and screen size, the mobile site can adjust itself according to your device. Page loading speeds are satisfactory on both mobile and desktop versions, and even the heaviest tables are loaded in seconds.
Bonuses & Promotions
Anonibet does not offer any promotions for new members. Currently, there are three promotions offered to all members:
- 1,000 USD Cashback Bonus: This campaign is only available for blackjack games. Every week, 10% of the amount you lost while playing blackjack is returned. The maximum amount you can receive is 1,000 USD. However, you have to deposit at least 100 USD.
- Twitter Deposit Bonus: If you follow the Anonibet Twitter account, you earn 100% match bonus. The highest amount you can win is 100 mBTC. However, your Twitter account must have at least 50 followers. In addition, you must complete a turnover requirement of x1 at minimum 1.10 odds.
- Live Games Cashback Bonus: Live casino games refund 10% (up to 100 USD) of the amount you lost each day. However, you must deposit at least 100 USD to benefit from this offer.
In addition to these promotions, there is also an "Anonibet Rewards" system. Every bet you place and every deposit you make give you a certain amount of points. There are a total of 5 different levels and you can get exclusive bonus offers at each level.
Games on Offer
Although Anonibet is primarily a betting site, it offers a satisfying casino content as mentioned above. In this context, services offered by Anonibet include:
- Sports Betting
- Live Betting
- Live Games (arcade games played with BTC)
- Live Casino
- Online Casino
The providers of the games in the casino category are Betsoft, Pragmatic Play, and iSoftBet. About 200 games are offered under the slots, cards, and table categories. You can try all of them for free. Unfortunately, however, they do not have provably fair feature. The game collection is compatible with mobile platforms, but some very old card games can cause problems in non-Android operating systems. There are 18 games in the Live Casino category, and roulette, baccarat, blackjack, keno, and bet on numbers are offered. In general, we can easily say that the casino and live casino categories have a satisfying content. The slot games that we recommend you to try are Magic Shoppe, Gold Train, The Angler, Booster, and 3 Kingdoms - Battle of the Red Cliffs.
In the betting category, 15 different sports are available. Although most of the options are for European leagues, you can still bet on some American leagues too. The overall betting margin is slightly above the sector average. So although not very high, it will be enough for casual bettors. The betting interface also works seamlessly on mobile devices.
Anonibet uses 128-bit SSL encryption on all pages. But it does not have any license. This can be a problem as casino games are not provably fair. Although it is one of the oldest BTC betting sites in the industry, we recommend you be careful.
You can only use Bitcoin to withdraw. Even if you have opened a USD account, your withdrawal will be paid as BTC. The minimum withdrawal limit is 0.005 BTC and there is a 5% fee for each transaction. The maximum amount you can withdraw within 24 hours is 50 BTC. The process is completed within an average of 12 hours.
For Anonibet deposits, you can only use Bitcoin. Minimum deposit limit 0.001 BTC. The maximum limit is 100 BTC. There is no commission for deposits. But it takes 10-15 minutes to complete the process.
E-mail and live chat are the only support methods available. However, the e-mail support can be used through a contact form on the website, so there is no specific e-mail address. Live Chat is available 24/7 via the website. Anonibet developers are very active on BitCoinTalk, so you can reach them using this site too.
Anonibet succeeds in providing satisfying content for both bettors and casino players. The only negative aspect is that it does not have a license. There is no problem except for the potential security issues that this could cause. However, the lack of eSports support and the limited number of total sporting events can be a problem for professional bettors. Nonetheless, if you are an average bettor or player, Anonibet offers you everything you need.
