    Why isn't nitrogen sports rated higher?

    Why isn't nitrogen rated A- or A?

    I am using Bitcoin for the first time and it is super fluid and anonymous. It took minutes literally to transfer to wallet and back. Why isn't it rated higher than B, is it because of its relatively new? Don't want another bet islands fiasco.

    Believe I recall reading that this book was not interested in revealing much about its ownership and financing. More to consider than ease of use. If you can't judge the financing, you can't rate the book.

    Nitrogen is a top book fiat or bitcoin. They've been in business since 2012 without any problems. Deposits are instant and withdrawals are close to instant. Nitrogen is the biggest of the bitcoin books.

    I've been playing with them on almost a daily basis for years. They also have a poker room.

    Ratings have become more and more difficult over the years. Nothing is apples to apples anymore and the needs of each player is very individualized. Not only by country but where in the country and the betting options offered have gone in different directions. Live betting is big for example which itself cant be offered in Australia. Safety has always been a top factor. Tracking books like Canbet that are allowed to be sold out of gov't backed jurisdictions is still very important. And then you have the bitcoin outfits. How important is their safety to you when you don't have to keep more funds than you are currently betting? Yet, if you say an anonymous book is great, implying you know about its pedigree, then someone wins a 170-1 or keeps their bankroll there and they tank?...well, its hard.

    That's why the filter on the rating system is the biggest sportsbook tool online right now. Ratings are good once you narrow it down to the product you are looking for. Think of it like Amazon filter... You don't care about 5 star ratings if you are looking at cheese and bicycles but once you get down to shopping for your TV, you probably look.

    Being that this topic was made, I'll even vouch for their CS. I've only to do so once but a little over a week ago I submitted a ticket simply asking if my wager was overlooked because it hasn't been settled, despite the results having been finalized over 24 hours prior to submitting the ticket, and within 10 minutes I received a response along with having my wager settled. The CS representative took care of it all super fast and even apologized for the issue.

    It would take years to rate nitrogen an A

    It seems like it's a good book and maybe a solid B

    You don't have to worry about security at Nitrogen. Make an i n s t a n t d e p o s i t and withdraw your winnings after the game. It normally takes less than 10 minutes.

    Bill, a good book is a good book. Are they paying out, do they have outstanding debts, what complaints have they had filed against them, who owns them, can they cover the action, etc....

    Exchanges are getting flagged, not the banks. One exception may be in Australia.

    Only disappointment is their lack of college basketball totals on many major conference games. They're response was that they post what their provider gives them. Been with them for a couple of years, withdrawals/deposits have been easy to accomplish.

    It's not rocket science but it is more than that. An A book needs to be fairly large and well-financed. The book has a solid rating and seems about right. You have to have financials to have an A rating and dealing reduced odds, you need really good financials.

    They're a Pinnacle clone. Almost exactly down to the vig the same as Pinnacle. This also means no NBA halftime lines.

    The only problem I have with Nitrogen is that they pull all their odds from Pinnacle. A book of their size should be able to make their own lines I'm tired of going to a new sportsbook and finding out that all they do is take Pinn's lines and either keep it as is or mark it up. IMO A+ Sportsbooks should have the ability to draw their own lines like B365, Pinn and WHill.

    Really the only thing good about Nitro is they payout fast. Of course it is only with bitcoin though. They don't have open parlays. You can't even bet moneyline sides and totals of the same game. Not very good betting options. But you can bet on badminton, if that's your thing.
