VitalBet is an online sports_v2 betting platform, well-known for its involvement in the live eSports world, and as being the official sportsbook and casino of boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.
Players can place bets on matches taking place in popular games such as Starcraft, DOTA and Counter Strike. Elsewhere on the site, there's a fully featured online casino with live dealers, betting on the price of Bitcoin, and traditional lotto and dice games.
Users sign up with their chosen username, and are then able to fund their account using a wide range of payment options. Users can send payment with bitcoin, as well as the through traditional credit and debit card options. With a minimum payment of only 0.001 BTC and no maximum, bitcoin provides one of the most attractive options to fund an account. Users select the amount they want to deposit and enter any bonus or promotional codes they have to increase their funds. VitalBet regularly runs these promotional codes, so it may well be worth checking for one.
With their account funded, users can begin placing sportsbook-style bets on many popular eSport tournaments and matches. Viewing the upcoming matches through the VitalBet calendar, users can favorite these events and place bets on the results.
For Bitcoin, a number of wagers are open on the direction of the value of the digital currency. From whether Amazon will integrate BTC payments in 2015, to the possibility of the USD bitcoin price overtaking that of gold. The bets could represent an interesting way for users to hedge against falls in the exchange rate of BTC to fiat currencies.
In the casino, users can choose from roulette, blackjack, baccarat, lottery and keno. These games are run by live dealers, and if players feel one particular dealer gives them a lucky streak, a dealer schedule can show when the preferred operator will be online next.
The VitalBet lottery draws its numbers every five minutes, and users can place bets from the ten numbers available in the three running games. The site's dice games are also familiar to regular players, offering a comprehensive list of betting options.
Leftover funds and winnings can be withdrawn from VitalBet in the same portal as deposits. Users can select from a long list of available services. User must first verify their accounts, however, in order to comply with know-your-customer (KYC) financial regulations.
