JetWin Sportsbook Review
Jetwin Sportsbook and Casino has burst onto the since as part of the newest flavor of the month – bitcoin cryptocurrency. Jetwin offers customers a super-charged online experience, with instant payouts, competitive odds, anonymity for customers and a range of promotions and bonuses. Bitcoin is the primary currency of use on this site, with minimum bets starting at ฿0.0002, or around $3USD at current market prices. Jetwin’s site is broken into three main areas – the Sportsbook, Live Casino and Slots.
Jetwin Sportsbook delivers a focused selection of Betting Markets in all the major sports the majority of punters are interested in, with the notable exception of horse racing. The sports on offer imply a heavy bias towards the US, with American Football, Baseball, Basketball, Ice Hockey and Tennis all listed before the highest value gambling sport worldwide, Football (Soccer). As a result of the limited sports selection, when clicking on some sports, there are no events available to bet on, which can be disconcerting and off putting as a new customer to the site. During this time, it might be worth while checking out the Virtual Sports section of the site, complete with Virtual Live Streaming of events such as Horse Racing, Speedway and Bike Racing – just give the section of the site some time to fully load. You can place some interesting bet types on Jetwin besides Accumulators (known as Multi-bets on this site) – System, Trixie and Patent bets are all available for those who can handle the more technical spectrum of pre-match gambling. Arguably a negative for Jetwin that comes closely linked with running a Cryptocurrency-based Sportsbook, anonymous accounts are not eligible for Promotions or Bonuses to avoid bonus abuse. However, if new customers choose to share details there’s a $35 dollar no-deposit Bonus available, and even a bitcoin based Bonus for those wanted to jump on the bitcoin bandwagon.
Jetwin doesn’t offer much opportunity for Live or Inplay betting to its customers, although hopefully this is something they incorporate into their website in the future. You are able to bet on Inplay matches and events, albeit to a limited degree, with minimal betting markets, no statistics or visuals and notably delayed real-time betting.
Besides the Sportsbook, JetWin also offers a Live Casino and Online Slots to customers. The Live Casino area of the site actually required fiat currency to use, so anonymity is waived should a user wish to use this area of the bookmaker. The site offers the usual range of Casino games to entertain its customers, with the old favourites of Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette and Poker all available 24/7. The Slots area of the site offers, you guessed it, an extensive range of online slots to explore. Many of the most popular games by the biggest online slot developers can be found here, and you even better, you can use your bitcoin in this area of the site.
Usability of the Site
Sadly, the usability of JetWin has some room for improvement in the future. The layout seems quite fragmented, particularly from the beginning, and the bias towards American Sports is surely going to disappoint the majority of customers (who tend to be European rather than American). The bookmaker offers a reasonable selection of Sports and Betting Markets, and it would be great to see Offers and Promotions in a more prominent position on the website to attract more punters. A real positive for JetWin that it can capitalise on is that it offers the use of bitcoin as a currency, something that many other bookmakers don’t currently provide – this is sure to bring an influx of new customers as the cryptocurrency hype continues to grow.
JetWin is trying to position itself as the leading Bitcoin Bookmaker worldwide. In general, the website offers some reasonable markets and sports, however, many previous reviews online are negative about the customer experience with the bookmaker. If it wishes to secure this position, in the future Jetwin must aim to improve upon this, and expand on the capability and offering of its site.
