That said, with its vast array of regular casino games it seems likely that CloudBet won’t fail to hold your attention indefinitely. Read on and we’ll explain why.

CloudBet In More Detail
Registering and opening an account with CloudBet is a pretty simple affair. All you need to enter is a valid email address and password, plus your date of birth, and you can start bitcoin gambling. This makes a refreshing change from what goes on at some other bitcoin sites, with personal data such as bank details, address, phone number and more being requested. This also takes more time of course, but with CloudBet you’ll get a confirmation email and you’re away. The site is easy to navigate around and attractively designed.
The Welcome Bonus at CloudBet is notably generous: 100% worth up to 5 BTC on opening an account. We don’t think we’ve seen anything like that at any other site, where amounts in the region of 1 BTC are more the norm.
Of course there are terms and conditions, but these are reasonable; the minimum deposit you must make to qualify is just 0.01 BTC and the casino operates a loyalty points system, with 0.01 BTC of bonus money released to you for every 800 loyalty points you earn by playing CloudBet’s bitcoin slots, so it is your choice whether you want to play for the full bonus or more modest gains.
Deposit and Withdrawal
As noted you need only make small deposits to get the bonus money to play with at CloudBet. Withdrawals can be made very fast – within a 24 hour period, with a minimum withdrawal of just 0.001 BTC. At the same time, if you wish to make a large withdrawal, there is an offline ‘cold wallet’ which gives added security.
One nice feature of CloudBet bitcoin casino is that it caters for high rollers. Their sportsbook takes bets of up to 200 BTC on NHL, NHA and European football (i.e. Soccer), and there is no limit to the amount of bitcoins you can transfer to your CloudBet account.
Being able to make big deposits without the matching selection of games would be useless if there was nothing to spend it on, so it’s great that CloudBet have put their money where their mouth is with over 1000 games for you to savour. These include hundreds of slots from gaming software industry leaders Microgaming (Hellboy, Aztec Idols) and Betsoft (After Night Falls, Mamma Mia!) as well as smaller outfit Play n’ Go (Dragon Ship). There are also tonnes of online table games available at CloudBet including various versions of Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack as well as Bingo and Keno games.
There is also a great Live Casino with live links based in a variety of locations around the world including Latin America and the Baltic region, which not only has the usual Roulette and Blackjack, but also offers Lotteries and Keno.
Then of course there’s the Sports Book too. CloudBet cover all manner of sports from the mainstream, most popular sports such as Soccer, American Football, Basketball and of course Aussie Rules to the not-as-popular sports of MMA, Futsal and even eSports. You can also bet during sporting events by visiting their Live Sports section - most big live events are covered here.
CloudBet carries games by Play N’ Go, a dedicated mobile games developer based in Sweden, so you can play bitcoin games at this casino while you’re on the hoof as well as sitting in the office at home;) This is equally applicable to smartphone and tablet.
CloudBet boasts a Live Chat function, where agents are on hand to answer all of your queries in real time. The site itself is well designed and clearly navigable with plenty of info in good English.
CloudBet’s security at least on the surface seems sound. They have an offline ‘cold wallet’ system for storing your bitcoin so it is not stored online on the CloudBet site. They also use 2-step google authentication when signing in, which makes it harder for your account to be compromised. They also state that their bitcoin betting games are RNG (random number generated) tested and audited, though they don’t state by what technology or certification. There are no other logos on the site from organisations like GamCare or the regulating authority of the site, so we’re putting a question mark over the site’s security for that reason.
CloudBet is a bitcoin gaming site with distinct strengths and only a few smaller weaknesses. On the plus side it is an attractively designed site with a great selection of games and some generous bonus programs; on the minus, its security component is debatable only in so much as there are no independent bodies who have been linked to the site, and that is about the only thing keeping us from awarding CloudBet the full five stars!
