Nitrogen Sports Review

Nitrogen Sports is one of the original bitcoin sportsbooks to hit the market way back in 2012. It has since established itself as one of the industry leaders in terms of security, amount of sports markets offered.

Bonuses and Promos at Nitrogen Sports

One of the few drawbacks with regard to Nitrogen Sports’ total offering is that there is little in the way of bonuses and promotions. When it comes to deposit bonuses and other bonuses aimed at people who have just created an account, they flat-out do not exist. This is something that is not really  new in the bitcoin sports industry – we can’t really explain it to be perfectly honest, but the fact they are one of the pioneers in this niche the people at Nitrogen MUST be doing something right as they’ve only expanded their customer base for years now.

The only thing that we can say is that Nitrogen does offer some special promotions throughout the year. Whether it is a betting survival pool, or some other jackpot-oriented event, there are occasional promotions. To be fair, however, these promotions work as a nice addition to your experience rather than a tool to encourage new bettors to sign up.

Another great thing that Nitrogen offers is reduced juice lines on almost all their major sports, as well as many other sports markets in general. This is something even a lot of the mainstream “fiat-currency only” bookies don’t even offer their bettors. So while it’s definitely a bummer they don’t offer traditional bonuses to new users, they try their best to make up for it with attributes such as this.

In the long run, the team here would definitely like to see a sign-up bonus of some sort added in the future, but seeing as it hasn’t been brought about yet, it’s not likely to happen anytime soon. Keep checking our review just in case they reverse course!

Depositing at Nitrogen Sports

Depositing at Nitrogen Sports is more or less the same as it is at most other Bitcoin sportsbooks. Adding funds to your account takes a matter of moments, and the funds will show up and become playable instantaneously. When it comes to withdrawing funds, the story is more or less the same.

This cashier system is flawless and you can generate new BTC addresses to help fund your account whenever you want. You can use your balance to bet sports, play casino games or even try a few hands at the poker tables. All in all, we have absolutely no qualms with the banking methods and functions of Nitrogen Sports.

Sports at Nitrogen

Having been in business since 2012, it goes without saying that Nitrogen Sports is clearly doing something right. While it is evident they are doing more than just one or two things the right way, their sports coverage is what makes Nitrogen beyond anything we normally see at most of these bitcoin-only sportsbooks. As we’ve come to expect of any competent Bitcoin sportsbook, Nitrogen covers the most popular sports in the world – including those that you might not have ever heard of before.

While it is enough to say that they cover all the major sports (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL), that does not truly do Nitrogen Sports’ overall offering any justice. If you fire up their site’s lines, its literally loaded with everything, including tennis, eSports, horse racing, cricket and of course every major soccer league on the planet.

With regard to soccer, the big-time European leagues you would expect to see are there. From La Liga to the English Premier League, they have you covered. But beyond that, there are more than 100 different leagues and events covered under the soccer market alone. As another example of their reach, their basketball section not only covers the NBA but also leagues from across Europe, South America, Asia and beyond.

Just because the site focuses heavily on major sports and the leagues/events that fall under them, that does not mean they neglect some of the lesser-known competitions from around the world. Whether you want to wager on esports, MMA, or darts, Nitrogen Sports has you covered. We could go on and on about the sports coverage boasted by Nitrogen Sports, but it is safe to say that they cover it all.

Mobile Compatibility and Functionality

The mobile version of Nitrogen Sports is exactly like the desktop version. We like this because it lends itself to usability and user-friendliness. If you are, for example, someone who strictly utilizes the desktop version of Nitrogen Sports’ site, you will be happy to know that you can pick up your mobile phone or tablet and attain the same exact experience while on the go.

As is the case with most sports betting mobile sites, Nitrogen Sports functions within your device’s browser. There is no downloadable application, and this is something that does not look to be changing at any point in the near future. If, however, the mobile device you are attempting to use operates with Internet Explorer, you might be out of luck. At this point, Nitrogen Sports is incompatible with Internet Explorer.

As far as overall functionality is concerned, you have nothing to worry about. Their mobile-facing site functions flawlessly so long as you have internet connectivity. From finding your favorite sports to viewing all the available lines, the development team have really made things super simple and without a ton of lag or wait time whatsoever.

You can sign up for an account in seconds, view your bet slips and deposit or withdrawal your bitcoin all with the swipe and click of a finger tap! You can view the site from any angle your smartphone or tablet will allow and everything will automatically respond to your movements. It’s amazing just how fast everything loads on their mobile site. All things considered, this is probably one of the best mobile interfaces we’ve ever had the pleasure of reviewing and trying out ourselves.

Security

Like most other Bitcoin sportsbooks, Nitrogen Sports operates with HTTP Secure, indicated by the “https” at the beginning of their web domain. Though we could go into the nitty-gritty details as to what, exactly, “https” means, you only need to know that it is a security measure that has been proven to be effective and is slowly but surely becoming an industry standard.

Because Nitrogen Sports likes to keep customers at peace, they do not require you to offer up much of any personal information when you sign up and create an account. By simply logging into the site you can instantly and anonymously create an account. As you open the page, you are prompted to create a username and password. Once the password is verified your account is created and you can deposit bitcoins (something that happens instantly).

The site will keep you automatically logged in and provides you a separate link to view your account from other devices, especially if you’re not looking to get change account numbers – which are automatically assigned for security purposes. They also enable two-factor verification on your account if you want to have the highest possible protection, not to mention protect higher than average bitcoin balances.

The aforementioned signup method is one of the best in the industry today and should be adopted by more bitcoin sportsbooks. It is one of the most secure ways to keep accounts from being broken into and allows you to view your account on different devices without having to feel like your personal information may be accessed or stolen. The fact they have round the clock customer support is also a big-time help for players at Nitrogen.

Final Verdict for Nitrogen Sports

Like we alluded to earlier, there is a reason why Nitrogen Sports has been in the business for as long as they have. They have done all the right things and their global audience is growing all the time. Not only does this sportsbook do the basics aptly, they do much more than that.

You could spend a whole day browsing the different betting markets and options, and if you have to get moving, you can also access it all via your mobile device. Whether its their top-notch security protocol or the face they offer reduced juice lines, there isn’t much to dislike about Nitrogen.
