One of the first sites to offer bitcoin deposits, Nitrogen Sports, has been live since 2012. It has a wide array of sports, e-sports, casino and poker options to satisfy your gambling needs.
Getting started is very easy. Just go to their site, click on Create New Account, enter a captcha and there you go. That gets you an account number and from there you can add what user name and password you want. Under settings you can add your email as well but this is not required (a big bonus to some). They do require you to set up 2-F Authentication(for log in and for withdraws). We have used Authy app and have had no issues. Google Authenticator is also a good option. All in it takes less than 3 minutes. Click on your balance at the top of the screen to generate a deposit address and you are all set.
Games offered by Nitrogen Sports
Nitrogen Sports offers sports betting, casino games and even poker. Let’s have a closer look at all the available options.
Nitrogen Sports offer a wide range of sports to wager on, all the way from your classics like NFL, Soccer and NBA to others like Snooker, Price of Bitcoin and Sport Simulations. The sportsbook is using Pinnacle odds with added margin and a much smaller selection of markets. For most sports you will find your typical ML, Spread and Over/Under wagers. For most spread and O/U wagers you can move the total up or down, sometimes as much as 3 goals/games with adjusted odds on each move. For most US leagues they also will offer Game, Team and Player props as well. One area they do drop the ball is in soccer, where you do not see any of the specialty lines (BTTS, Double result, etc). For most major leagues they do offer future wagering as well. But if you ever see a line missing they are always willing to listen. Submit your request via customer service and they will do their best to add it. Live wagering is also an option and has its own tab. It can be a bit random as to what games they offer though. A handy feature they have is the Starting Soon tab that lists out all upcoming events. We have to mention that we aren’t really happy with Nitrogen’s live betting options though due to a very small number of events and tiny limits. Nitrogen Sports comes with a unique feature though and that is the option of placing teasers. No other sportsbooks offer teasers and if that’s your type of bet, Nitrogen is your only option.
Nitrogen Sports is pretty known for their e-sport options but personally, we aren’t fans of that. The margins are extremely high, the coverage is fairly small and you aren’t allowed to parlay esports events while limits are also very small. On offer are games such as CS:GO, StarCraft, Rainbow Six, Overwatch, LoL, Dota 2 etc.. Most will include ML, spread and O/U maps, along with individual map wagering as well. Besides wagering, Nitrogen Sports also has a very active twitter account dedicated to e-sports (@nitrogenesports). You will find a wealth of information to help with your picks, along with contests giving away free bets. It is worth a follow.
One area Nitrogen Sports has made big strides in lately is their casino. Originally they just had the classics: Blackjack, Dice, Baccarat, but continue to add new games all the time. Currently they offer video poker, roulette, craps, keno, 15 different slots, craps and three card poker. All games are Provably Fair, meaning you can use the seed from your round number to check the results. We have a weakness for craps and absolutely love theirs. It even offers a Nitro Bet (other sites call it a Fire Bet) that is based on the point streak of the shooter. Once you hit 4 points it beings to payout with a top price of 999:1 for all 6 points made. Another favorite of us that they just added is Blackjack Tournaments. They usually only run on weekends but they are adding more all the time. Besides regular tournaments they also offer Guaranteed pots that greatly increases your odds. We played, and won a tournament with a guaranteed pot of 0.1 btc. First prize was 0.04 btc and all it cost us was a 0.002 btc entry fee.
Blackjack House Edge at Nitrogen:
1 Deck – 1.3927%
2 Deck – 1.55275%
8 Deck – 1.77376%
If poker is your game, Nitrogen Sports always have open tables. Besides your standards: NL, PL, fixed limit, and Omaha, they also have Crazy Hold’em. In Crazy Hold’em you start with 3 cards instead of two. After the first three community cards are dealt players then discard one to get down to two cards. Blinds on all games range from 0.01/0.02 mBTC up to 100/200 mBTC. Aside from table games, they also run tournaments with a full schedule listed on their site. On this day they had 31 different tournaments listed, with 8 of those being freerolls. Besides the tournaments and games they also offer Player Rewards based on your play. It is a 5 tier system going from Bronze up to Diamond. The higher the level you are and higher the stakes, the more points you earn. You can then redeem those points for bitcoin or free bets. Points and levels do reset each month so make sure you cash them in.
Nitrogen Sports Bonuses & Promotions
Nitrogen Sports does not offer deposit bonuses. However they are always offer other ways to help pad your bankroll. They offer NitrogenSquares (your typical 10×10 grid of picking a box that matches up to game scores) and NitrogenBrackets (with the current state of sports they have been running simulation tournaments but also have them for all major playoffs). For these contests they offer both free entry and bet slip entry (submitted a bet slip over a specific amount). Usually between 0.001 btc and 0.005 btc so you can always get in on them. In the past they have also done other promotions as well. They are generally not shy about giveaways.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Nitrogen Sports does only accept bitcoin for all transactions. As soon as your deposit hits the blockchain it will show up in your balance. However they do require 1 confirmation (more for deposits over 1btc) before you can play, but with he speed of the chain these days it is but minutes. Withdrawing is just as easy. Minimum withdrawal is 0.001 btc. They ask for the address you are sending to, amount, password and 2-FA code. Withdraws are processed at the top of each hour. You can also transfer funds to other players as well. You just need to know their User number. Once a withdraw is completed you can find the TX link on the cashier page. The first withdraw each week is free, with a 0.0001 btc fee on all other withdraws.
