    in my experience betcoin is reputable. They offer more markets and betting options on euro sports than any other USA open book. They also pay. HOWEVER they are quick to limit and the limits are harsh. I mean literally $5 and $10 btc equivalent max bets.

    I have also heard that they do not take new USA accounts only grandfathered US accounts are allowed. But I am not sure that is true.

    Top book and they just upgraded. Best live betting book of all of them. Payouts within 15 minutes. If you bet live, must have.

    I'm not sure why but I've been limited at times but was able to get down a lot more live.

    Not the case with me. I mostly do live there. Or should I say did live. Really no point to play there for me. I do like the book overall.

    Betcoin has yearly and weekly prizes. If you miss a week, tough to win yearly but still in for the other weeks.

    Agree with Mike that they are the most underrated book. They added another book as part of Betcoin with the exact same odds as Pinny. Take advantage of Pinny lines and Betcoin lines for live betting markets. I heard limits will be higher and that they won't be slashed easily. They did cut limits fast. We'll have to wait and see.

    I posted this pic in another thread. There are actually 4 different sites that you can enter. And you can play in USDT so that you don't have to worry about crypto fluctuation.

    Nice and easy to deal with if a problem arises.

    The manager we had contact with seemed to be genuinely committed to acting fairly.

    Not for the sportsbook. 100% for the casino. Not sure of the terms for the casino bonus.

    They changed their stance on this and will now take US players that sign up through a VPN. No one will get money confiscated for the reason of being from the US. They will turn a blind eye. The sister site is different. Playbetr will not allow US players under any circumstances.

    Betcoin now takes US but sister site Playbetr is partnered with Paris Saint-Germain F.C. The licensing is stricter for Playbetr.

    Good to read this, as Mary on LiveChat informed me that it was a no go, being a US resident. Will give it another shot, thanks for the update.

    I'm not sure what type of deal that they have with Pinny but brilliant move on their part to hook up with them.

    Looking around at more NCAAF the limits are between $60k-$80k. That does seem high. If anyone gets limited in the Pinny section, post about it.

    yes, but it probably doesn't matter unless they geo-block US. Browsers such as Opera have free VPNs.

    Same. They also plan to have live video for major events. Not sure if this is a done deal but there is a rumor about having a full race book for horses and greyhounds.

    In the Betcoin Sports (Beta), they also have boosted odds, less hold than the normal line. The green z is boosted odds.

    I find just using pinnacle section much easier

    A navigation disaster and site very slow

    Way too much going on

    Many casino games do not work

    USA guys use VPN and clear your cache helps with pinnacle working

    I was told No by CS even with using the VPN. They told me please don't create the account.

    Don't worry about it. You're good. I grilled them and they aren't going to confiscate US players. I've been there since 2013 so talked to someone higher up. Playbetr is a different story. They are high profile, aligned with PSG and are going for a much stricter license.

    There's no reason to have multiple accounts since the limits are so high through their Pinny site. If someone gets limited through their Pinny site, post about it.

    Don't go multi-accounting to grab bonuses through the casino or multi-account for the Betcoin lines. That's the only thing that will get you in trouble.

    Also, they will go through any reputable third party arbiter if a dispute does arise. They didn't mention any names though.
