    Nitrogen has been down for the past 10 hours

    This was unscheduled, so this is a reason for concern.

    I did see this and occasionally Nitrogen does have planned shutdown for maintenance purposes that usually lasts 30 minutes to an hour. This was not planned and have been over 10 hours. They have no estimated timeline as to when the site will be back up. These are just horrible optics to say the least.

    I sent Nitrogen an email asking whether the site will be back up today and this is the answer I received. I have a lot of bitcoin in my account, so their whimsical disregard of the severity of having their site being down is alarming.

    See below.

    ďHello,

    Unfortunately at this time we handle no Estimated Time for Resolution.

    We will inform you as soon as we have some updates.

    Fairly Is a joke. Can they make that site any more confusing? I just signed up for an account and it took me 15 minutes to figure out how to place a fukin wager. Not to mention they don't offer parlays? Are you fukin kidding me? They may pay out instant but I can wait 20 minutes for my nitro payout. Luckily I only deposited a small amount to fairly but I am far from impressed.

    Iíve used Nitrogen for over 5 years, never had an issue, nor am I complaining, simply stating facts and checking if anyone else has anymore information; being down now for 12 hours is a reason to be worried. I didnít believe fairlay took US action, but Iíll check it out.

    Used for several years as well...couple years ago they raised their house edge on every line...went from instant withdrawals to hours. Checked out Fairlay, haven't looked back. They accept US members, interface can be a lil difficult to understand but ALWAYS better odds than Nitrogen. I can guarantee that. If you need any help feel free to message me. Nitrogen screwed me over awhile back and I despise them.

    I have 76ers as my last leg of a parlay where the payout is 5 bitcoin, so I want to be able to enjoy the game where if I win, I know I will be paid. I was a betisland victim in 2012 so Iím hypersensitive to any red flags.

    You have placed the following bet:

    Betslip ID: 10129244615
    Bet Type: Parlay
    Leg 1: [Basketball - NBA] Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers
    Pick: Game: Golden State Warriors -11.5 (2.146)
    Leg 2: [Basketball - NBA] Philadelphia 76ers v Toronto Raptors
    Pick: Game: Philadelphia 76ers +5 (2.235)
    Leg 3: [Baseball - MLB] LAA Angels v Kansas City Royals
    Pick: Game: LAA Angels -2.5 (3.124)

    Parlay:
    0.337 to win 4.71261

    Just tried to sign up for fairlay but the site stated that my area was restricted, not sure what that is about.

    You will get paid. It is a DDOS attack. Common in bitcoin world. Sorry to hear, I think Fairlay bans a few states. Here in Maryland/DC works no problem.

    If you're a casual player who cares about convenience and strong interface then yes, Nitro is better. Fairlay though offers ~2% better return on your odds so for someone who bets large amounts, Fairlay is better. You can easily bet 5 BTC on a major sport event as well and the option to rebet. I have seen 10 BTC wagers probably once a week on the site (you can view history of matched wagers on the exchange).

    For example, if MLB line is -106/-106 on Nitrogen, Fairlay will be -104/-104 every time. If you make large wagers that is a lot. Fairlay is the same as Pinnacle odds so you only need to look on SBR pinny odds before going on Fairlay.

    If you are a parlay better go ahead and bet on Nitrogen, parlays have 10%+ house edge and are not good wagers.

    You're going to get your funds if it wins, don't worry. As much as I hate Nitrogen, your funds are safe.

    Nitrogen has made millions upon millions, they aren't leaving the business.

    DDOS is hard to fight. Like REALLY hard to fight. Often cannot give timeframe on when it will stop or when your software can beat it.

    Got ya. Appreciate the your feedback here. I think I had a fundamental lack of understanding as to how the DDOS attacks play out. I wish they would of at least gave that explanation.

    I hear you. I just wish fair lay website wasn't so complicated. That turns people away including me. I won't play there because of that reason and the fact they don't accept parlays. I like risking small amounts that pay out a lot rather than risking large amounts of money on one game.

    I have pending grades from games that ended 16 hours ago. Should be interesting to see how long it takes them to grade all these games. Probably 2 days. Fuk.

    eaglesfan371.......I see where you said the Md/DC area....can you give any info on MGM in DC/Me or Maryland Live? I'm in the tarheel state and love the casinos(not as much as the sportsbooks) & will be heading north at the end of May to visit one of those in that area. Have you ever been to either of these? I've been to MGM but not Maryland Live but have heard only good things.
    Thanks in advance......just know that it's killing me to be asking someone with the moniker Eaglesfan because even though I'm from NC I am a diehard DALLAS COWBOYS fan!!!!

    Their grading system is atrocious. They also make up their own rules for baseball, changes everyday to align with their interests. The only thing that has me coming back is their payouts.

    Yes Iíve been to both MGM and Live. Shoot me a PM and tell me what you enjoy most at a casino. Poker, slots, table games, dining options, local amenities, things to do outside casino, etc. Each one is better in some of those areas than the other.

    It sucks.. prevented me from doing a cover bet yesterday with the Raptors/76ers. I had the 76ers as a last leg of a parlay that would of paid out 5 bitcoin. I always bet the other side in situations like this to make sure I get a profit. I hate you nitro. Their customer support team simply shares one brain cell also and always repeats the same thing with a fundamental lack of understanding of gambling rules.

    Does Nitrogen allow you to hedge your parlay for free like Heritage? Surely you have other outs besides Nitrogen, right?

    I use bookmaker also, but I had all of my bets pending and they are no longer allowing rolling if bets. Nitrogen does not have that option to hedge a parlay. Iím mad at myself too, I put 10gs to ML the Spurs and shouldíve just taken the points.
