Bitcoin Gambling Review – BetKing

The Bitcoin gambling sector keeps attracting new players, and BetKing was launched in April of 2013 under the Pocket Rocket Casino name. After rebranding in January of 2015, the platform has evolved into a combination gambling and sports betting.

BetKing Mixes Sports Betting With Bitcoin Gambling

Opening up the BetKing website shows a professionally designed page with lots of information and graphics. However, this website is very light on system resources, which is a major plus. Users want the important information as soon as possible, and this platform shows an overview of games and the sports betting option.

Among the games BetKing has to offer, users can pick between slots, dice, roulette, and blackjack. These are the four most common casino games users are looking for, and there is always a market for such an offering. There is very little point in offering a lot of games hardly anyone will play, and it is good to see Bitcoin casinos focus on what is really important.

The sports betting section, on the other hand, immediately presents users with the live and upcoming events. Unfortunately, the BetKing sports betting section is limited to just soccer, and it would have been nice to see some other sports as well. Especially mixed martial arts and eSports are becoming quite popular.

One thing that is quite useful is how BetKing does not require users to sign up for an account, as they can start playing and betting right away. Users can create a full account and enable additional security features such as 2FA if they prefer, though. Depositing funds will require 1 network confirmation, which is not a big delay, but zero confirmations would have been better.

Casino games have to be provably fair, and BetKing provides that type of transparency. With a 1% house edge and instant withdrawals, being transparent is of the utmost importance. Moreover, the company will keep all of the deposited funds in cold storage, and BetKing has made their cold wallet address available to the public.

It is important to note BetKing is NOT available to UK customers. The company does not include any personal information on the website, and the WHOIS records show no details either. They do have a thread on the Bitcointalk forums which seems filled with very positive responses overall.
