    Why Would Anyone Play At Directbet?? Bitcoin Book

    Terrible Software
    Horrific odds with no options to bet -110 either way, all juiced lines

    Tell me why???

    #1 if you wager on horses IE UK racing and are in states where betfair is not available they offer product and yes sometimes there is value esp against the USA pari mutal pools..

    #2 they allow parlays on live events and have good selection of live odds and parlay-able prices...sure the odds are lower in most cases but if you wanna stack few parlays on soccer with lets say under 5.5 goals they do offer

    3# they allow mix and match parlays between horses and sports

    4# they grade fast and pay out instant

    5# the wagering platform is very simple

    They do have there flaws but I have used them for a while and am satisfied...Its good to have them as secondary option along with primary books like Heritage and Nitrogen

    Not often ESP pre match rarely...but sometimes I do on live lines as there is value sometimes esp on underdogs and thee live lines are open way more then any site I have seen like nitrogen or many fiat books

    I can see littlekona's points on horse racing but they add so much more take to the Betfair line that there should be an investigation for price gouging.

    To be fair that's a market with $0 matched so far on Betfair so far. Will tighten up when a market develops closer to game time and live.

    -120 and -125 to -113 and -119. Still horrible. Do they have a massive bonus or something? Skybook has huge bonuses and their juice still isn't that bad...

    No. I guess they get enough business that they can get away with it.

    So they have US racing? I don't see anything up but it's late. What price do they pay? Track payoff or something tied to Betfair?

    Yes have US but its kinda strange as they dont post races in advance like they do UK races. They will add to betting menu when post times near and the tracks vary...They offer handfull of tracks Penn National, Aqueduct , Tampa bay, turf paradise sunland park, meadowlands, woodbine and some others...I like the fixed odds esp at smaller handle tracks when you can drop a good size wager early before the price at track goes down...Ive gotten even money + on many 2/5 shots just by knowing to bet early...Also can get decent value on non favs but you have to watch and know betting trends at track...

    If you can bet through betfair though you are better off thats the best but not viable where I am....

    Also if you like crazy over unders like under 5.5 in soccer they offer the odds are bad most time under 1.1 but you can parlay and build bankrolls.....I also like the live wagering esp in soccer that you can parlay..also most of there live lines on US sports or INT soccer are available all game not just on breaks and certain spots like most books...

    They are good book to have...Pay fast and reliable and good CS....just are not best odds....Nitrogen Heritage and Looselines are my primary books in that order

    Yes they are the fastest payer of all btc books...graded and sent plus they grade fast and even grade during games if you win...I do crazy over unders sometimes on soccer over 1.5 goals and once 2 goals are scored it's graded winner and paid even before match is done...instant pay right to ure wallet no asking

    I don't understand anyone who talks about how directbet not being a great place to play, then in the next breath talk about​ how betonline is even with the payouts taking days, or deposits being held for 30 days..

    Dreamer betonline lines are outstanding on ML's American Sports

    Direcbet is just too juiced not really geared for American Sports

    Sometimes paying the juice is worth it to actually get paid.. keeping your deposit hostage is the biggest gimmick out there... People fall for it, so great business plan... The sheep will follow to slaughter in every way possible... It's hilarious
