When you open the casino, it is a very simplistic setup. The dark backgrounds and quirky images are quite welcoming. There is a very “less in more” feel to the casino. It is a very simplistic design where everything seems easy to access and utilize. Their colour scheme is a very dark blue, with white and red contrasts to really pop. They have a distinct logo which is a stylised N in a circle. They have a light and dark mode setting which can be changed at any moment and this helps with making you more comfortable while gaming. We have seen a few casinos where this option is not available and it can make for an uncomfortable feel after a while. They have an information slider which gives you the latest in promotions, tips on how to set up your account.
Once you scroll down from the slider, you will see 6 rectangular shaped boxes which once you hover over them, more information is given. This feature is also helpful as you don’t have all this information to go through, you can choose what you want to read and when you want to read it. After all, we are not here to read a novel, we are here to gamble!
They have a really easy account creation process. They boast only two easy steps, and besides the Captcha, it really was two easy steps.
Step 1: Enter your email address and password. Complete the Captcha.
Step 2: Check your email account for the verification code, insert the code and you are ready to play
The only other issue I had was after account creation I was not automatically signed in, which is preferable for me. I had to go click on “Login” which then asked me for a 2FA code. I had not yet set up my 2FA so I inserted a random 6 digit number and it was accepted, but we will cover this more in the Security and Community Reputation portion of this article.
Under Profile, which can be located in the top right hand corner of the site, you can add an avatar for yourself, a screen name, which is a nickname, you can set up your 2FA, you can enable or disable push notifications and change the dark and light theme. You are redirected to the Poker Room when trying to update or set up your Screen Name and Profile avatar which can be slightly detracting from the reason you are in the casino, to play.

Coins and payments
NitroBetting insists on a new BTC address to be used each time, where with other casinos we see an address being allocated to your account. You can only deposit and withdraw in BTC. The deposit I made took 10 minutes to arrive in the casino account, and it was an overall pleasant experience.
How to make a crypto deposit at NitroBetting:
Step 1: Click on the Deposit but in the top row at the right side
Step 2: Wait for the new code to generate, and scan the QR code or enter the address into your wallet under “send”
Step 3: Enter the amount you are looking to deposit, and click Send.
In order to cash out I had to set up 2FA on my casino account. If you have not yet set up your 2FA, the Withdraw option will be greyed out informing you to set your 2FA up. You can do this by clicking on Profile under the same hamburger menu, scrolling down to 2FA. The next instructions will be to scan the provided QR code in your 2FA app. The minimum withdrawal amount is 0.5 mBTC. You can expect your first withdrawal in 2 - 3 hours after you have processed it, thereafter the time cuts down as all their routine checks have been completed.
How to make a crypto withdrawal at NitroBetting:
Step 1: Click on the hamburger menu on the far right hand side
Step 2: Scroll down to “Withdraw”.
Step 3: Enter the amount you are looking to withdraw, the Crypto address from your wallet which you will find under “Receive”.
Step 4: Your withdrawal should then be received in your wallet.
NitroBetting offers support via Live Chat and email. Their Live Chat has a key which tells you how long they usually take to respond, but in my interactions it was much quicker than their informed time. I spoke to two different support agents who were both very friendly and efficient and my queries were answered. They do have a rating system once you have completed the chat where I do suggest you raise any concerns. These seem to be reviewed and taken note of. Both agents asked me to rate their service which in my experience shows these count towards something.
They have a Twitter account which is more for Sports Betting promotions and information than casino related. It is updated regularly, at the end of each match where a bet can be placed on. There is a Youtube Channel with limited informational videos, their Instagram page no longer exists and they have a Discord channel with various topics to talk about and learn about in the NitroBetting space but as for support, I wouldn’t use Discord as a channel for help. Their Live Chat is the better of all their available channels to gain their assistance as it is instant response time. They responded to an email I sent to them within 6 minutes of it being sent which is quite impressive.
Geos and languages
There are no country restrictions for this casino due to the anonymity offered by this casino. They offer English, Polish, Turkish, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin and Portuguese.
Security and community reputation
On registration of your NitroBetting account, you are simply required to enter an email and password and complete the captcha verification. You will then receive an email confirmation with a randomly generated number for you to insert into the casino. Only once you have logged out and back in you are required to enter a 2FA code, which is not mandatory at this point. This 2FA code only becomes mandatory once you have managed to process a withdrawal. Since it is an anonymous casino, and you don’t load up your card details and very little personal information to play with, the security concern is lowered since you are not overly exposed by not having to insert too much of your private information like in other casinos.
The community reputation for NitroBetting is not looking too good at the moment. Trustpilot has a rather dismal 2.7 rating, with 71% being poor ratings and 29% being higher ratings. Bitcointalk.org has more positive reviews than negative but there seems to be a general consensus that they are mediocre. Casino Guru has given them a 7/10 but with a few cautionary measures.
Running through the website and at different points of the journey while playing. Their homepage has a fantastic response time, however, once you are logged in the response time drops drastically. Game loading times are also quite slow on first opening of the game, however, on second launch onwards they load quicker due to cookies being saved by the cookies on your browser.
When it comes to crypto exclusive casinos, we are all aboard with the anonymity that comes with it. If you are looking for the anonymity, without the sportsbook, we suggest the following casinos:
Wild.io - Crypto exclusive without the sportsbook factor. They have a remarkable loyalty program
mBit casino - Another crypto exclusive casino which offers 7 different crypto currencies to deposit with.
NitroBetting is the regeneration of a previous brand called Nitrogen Sports which was initially started in 2014 which makes it one of the first Crypto Sportsbooks around. If you are into Sportsbook and enjoy that aspect of online betting, this is definitely a site to take a look at. If you are more into casino games and table games, it’s a pretty average online casino. I didn’t have much fun with the casino though, with my regular $20 deposit I had about 25 minutes of game time going through 8 different games. I could have been having an off day when it comes to gambling, but the likelihood is slim.
The best aspect of this website for me is definitely their variety of promotions which are specific to different gaming styles and types. Their support is also really good and the agents are super helpful and have a good outlook at helping customers. This site is not where you are going to make your million dollar wins, provably fair, but you will definitely have a good time while exploring the Sportsbook and different forms of gaming they have on offer. Again, and with all reviews we have up here, we do suggest you start off small and if you feel you have a lucky streak heading your way move onto bigger deposits and bigger bets.
