The action never stops here at Cloudbet, and our sportsbook is always brimming with value bets and some of the best bitcoin odds online. Read on to discover the best of the books for the seventh month of 2019.

July 2019

Biggest accumulator odds

At Cloudbet you can combine multiple bets to make huge profits, putting small amounts of crypto to effective use with our new minimum stakes limits. An unbelievable 8 team soccer accumulator was placed by one of our players, choosing mostly low odds games but also a 3.8 odds draw selection. This all totalled to a fantastic 78/1 winner! We continue to show each month our players win large with huge odds!

Biggest payout from a single bet

The most exciting payout from a single bet came in tennis, where the un-favoured Riske came back from a set down against the seeded Vekic at Wimbledon early in the month. 

Riske’s odds shot up to 9.76 in-play and one of our customers placed 0.1905 BTC on her to win which returned a fantastic 1.66 BTC! Our unrivalled in-play value odds are worth betting on, especially if you think an upset is on the cards!

Most bets placed

The 1st of July saw the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament commence as Wimbledon took centre stage this month. 15 year old Coco Gauff wowed the British crowds by progressing into the third round, beating her idol Venus Williams along the way, whilst Andy Murray made his long awaited return, partnering with Serena Williams in the mixed doubles. 

The standout match was the Men’s final as Federer and Djokovic epically duelled to the final set, with a 13-12 tie-break (the first of its kind) winning it for the Serbian. It proved to be one of our most active events of the year so far, with players finding huge success in-play!

The regular European soccer seasons may be dormant but that hasn’t stopped punters tucking into the action as fans have eagerly been watching pre-season friendlies around the world to see how their favoured clubs are getting on. 

With some detailed research on likely team selections, pre-season friendlies can be a great opportunity to beat the bookie as strange results can often happen due to the lack of key players in line-ups. 

We now look forward to August where the competitive action starts, starting with the English Premier League on Friday. Read our team by team preview of each club here before heading over to our sportsbook and betting on soccer with the best odds guaranteed.  

Noteworthy comebacks and payouts 

Last but not least, here are some noteworthy comebacks that paid out big. 

  • Back to Coco Gauff and Wimbledon for one of the biggest comebacks of the month as the 15 year old battled back from 5-2 down in the second set to win in 3 sets against Hercog.

  • The Cricket World Cup saw an unbelievable end to a thrilling tournament that was hosted in the UK. Amazingly and unprecedentedly, the match finished in a tie meaning a Super Over was needed to decide the tournament winner between England and New Zealand. The match could have swung either way but the home team managed to secure the title, fielding fantastically to spark wild scenes and euphoria.

  • Finally, the Tour de France crowned its first ever Columbian champion as 22 year old Egan Bernal became the youngest winner for 110 years. Bernal managed to secure the win over last year’s winner Geraint Thomas who started as the pre-event favourite.

That’s all for July - stay tuned for the latest sports opportunities and previews here at the Cloudbet Blog. 


June 2019 highlights

Biggest accumulator odds

At Cloudbet you can turn throwaway crypto into big bucks using our new minimum stakes limits on our sports product. This was fantastically proven by one of our PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) bettors who combined two winning margin bets to muster a 98/1 double! Just a 0.00037 BTC bet returned a 0.036 BTC win that was converted into a 0.1 BTC withdrawal.

Biggest payout from a single bet

The largest payout from a single bet came in boxing, where the huge upset victory for Andy Ruiz Jr over Anthony Joshua netted one customer a substantial win. The bet was placed at odds of an incredible 15.35 and returned 2.12 BTC, not bad for a 0.14 BTC investment!

Most bets placed

Arguably the biggest cricket competition in the world, the ICC Cricket World Cup boasted the highest amount of bets after a month full of fixtures as the changeable weather in the UK provided some interesting contests. We now head into the final stages with the semi-finals starting on the 9th July. Cloudbet continue to be the best priced in the crypto industry, so you can win more by betting with us!

Although the regular European soccer leagues take a rest in June, there have been a number of exciting international tournaments that have kept soccer punters on their toes. 

The Women’s World Cup has thrown up some thrilling encounters, with VAR often stealing the show, whilst the Copa America, African Cup of Nations, Gold Cup and U21 European Championship are all deep into their respective fixtures. 

We also can’t forget the Champions League final on June 1st, where unless you were a Liverpool fan, you probably weren’t thrilled by the match as both sides failed to put on a show worthy of the occasion.

All of these international tournaments are still going on into July, so take a look at the array of fixtures on site and the markets we offer here.

Noteworthy comebacks and payouts 

Last but not least, here are some noteworthy comebacks that paid out big. 

  • After scoring a below par 232 runs in the Cricket World Cup, Sri Lanka had it all to do against a confident England side who were favourites to win the tournament. They produced an impressive bowling performance, matched by an equally unimpressive batting performance from England to produce a huge upset.

  • The Gold Cup has produced a couple of big shocks that have involved Haiti, who have made it to the semi-finals of the competition. On the last day of June they managed to defeat Canada after going 2-0 down inside 28 minutes, with one player placing a 42/1 bet in-play!

  • Toronto Raptors amazingly secured their first ever NBA title as Canada erupted and celebrated this momentous achievement, exemplified by a parade with over 2 million fans! Outsiders from the start, they managed to secure 3 away victories against the overwhelming favourites Golden State, with Kawhi Leonard winning MVP.

That’s all for June - stay tuned to the latest sports opportunities and previews here at the Cloudbet Blog, and until next month.


May 2019 highlights

Biggest accumulator odds

An unbelievable 7-market accumulator was hit this month across the NHL, NBA & MLB. The customer placed just 0.0007 BTC (possible due to our new minimum stakes limits) on a variety of markets that all had odds over 2.0.

This included spreads, run line and moneyline markets with the accumulator being completed due to a bet on Under 208.5 during the Toronto and Philadelphia play-off game on May 12th. The odds of the accumulator was a staggering 274/1!

Biggest payout from a single bet

The largest payout from a single bet came from Italy in Serie A. The bet, placed on a draw of Lazio v Bologna at odds of 3.03, netted the bettor a very profitable 7.2 BTC after the match finished 3-3!

Most bets placed

With a lot of the major competitions, including the NBA, NHL & European Football Leagues, winding down in May, MLB took the most bets from players as the league started to take shape.

Our fantastic MLB prices are the best around in the crypto-world, with players betting the majority of their bets in-play rather than pre-play. Check out our latest odds here and get involved in one of the most popular sports to bet on!

Most active bettors

Clay court tournaments are always a sign that the tennis season is heating up as it arrives in Europe, with a couple of Grand Slams right around the corner. Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Rome provide the perfect warm up for the top players to get ready for the French Open, whilst bettors can analyse their form before the big one.

Tennis was the most popular sport in May and attracted a lot of new bettors, with our range of in-play markets proving popular throughout. The French Open has started and although the winners will be crowned in June, it’s important for the top seeds such as Nadal, Djokovic, Federer and Zverev to negotiate some of the less experienced and fancied competitors.

Last but not least, here are some noteworthy comebacks that paid out big.

  • Liverpool qualifying into the Champions League final, after an incredible 4-0 performance at Anfield, following 3-0 defeat in the first leg at the Nou Camp

  • Sticking with the Champions League, Tottenham managed to secure an incredible last minute winner to complete their comeback against Ajax. With seconds to go, Lucas Moura wrapped up his hat-trick to send the London team into dreamland

  • Toronto Raptors amazingly secured their first ever finals trip in the NBA, coming from behind to beat the Eastern Conference favourites Milwaukee Bucks 4-2

That’s all for May - stay tuned to the latest sports opportunities and previews here at the Cloudbet Blog, and until next month.


April 2019 highlights

With a lot of sporting competitions coming towards their compelling conclusions, and many others only just beginning, April was a thrilling month for our bitcoin sports bettors.

Biggest accumulator odds

An incredible 8-match accumulator was hit this month on 8 separate soccer matches. The customer placed just 0.0005 BTC (thanks to our new minimum stakes limits) on eight total goals markets. On each occasion the player chose over and all of them came in, with the accumulator hitting odds of 38/1!

Biggest payout from a single bet

The largest pay from a single bet came from baseball. The bet, placed on Colorado Rockies at odds of 2.47 against the Atlanta Braves netted the bettor a staggering 9.33 BTC - nearly €44,000.

Most bets placed

The hotly anticipated Indian Premier League drew in a massive amount of bets last month, with Cloudbet’s industry smashing cricket odds largely to thank. We have been offering markets with just 1% margins during the prestigious T20 tournament, using an exchange style to allow customers to trade and tactically place multiple bets on each event to make a profit. There have been 37 games during April and the group stage is almost complete, so keep an eye out for the exhilarating knockout phase in May and watch the drama unfold.  

Most active bettors

April is always an exciting month for basketball fans as 16 teams begin their play-off campaigns in hope of winning the coveted NBA Championship. With 5 away victories out of 6, the Golden State v LA Clippers series consistently attracted a high number of punters.

The Warriors, who are huge tournament favourites, had a couple of disappointing performances that may have given the other teams hope, particularly as center DeMarcus Cousins is now out for the rest of the season.

As the Conference semifinals begin, expect the NBA hype to increase as we get ready to crown the champions in June.

Noteworthy comebacks and payouts

Last but not least, here are some noteworthy comebacks that paid out big:

  • Ajax secured their place in the Champions League semi-finals with a 2-1 win away at Juventus, thereby ending Ronaldo’s UCL dreams. What an incredible achievement for the Dutch side after also beating 2018 champions Real Madrid in the last 16.

  • The biggest upset of the month happened in snooker, as world number 1 Ronnie O’Sullivan lost to an amateur player in the World Championships. Although Ronnie was struggling with illness, this was the first time an amateur player had ever competed in the tournament, let alone beat the number one. James Cahill’s lack of experience certainly explains why not one of our bettors backed him to win, but with odds reaching a high of 23.00 prior to the match, a €10 bet on him would have pocketed you around €227. He may have secured himself a place in the snooker history books for such an unexpected win, but he’s also earned his place in ours this April for being the one that got away.

That’s all for April - stay tuned for the latest sports opportunities and previews coming up in May as you enjoy bitcoin betting on sports at Cloudbet this month.



March 2019 highlights

March been dominated by basketball and soccer, as NCAA March Madness avalanches through the month and the UEFA Champions League reaches its later stages. But other sports have also brought some unexpected wins.

Biggest return from any bet

Without a doubt, this honour goes to an 8-match multi-bet on the UFC. Starting with just 0.02 BTC, the lucky player took home about 1.4698 BTC - nearly €7,000 from a bet of less than €100. The bold player stacked odds of around 68/1, including 3 outsiders, in his call.

Biggest payout from a single bet

The largest pay from a single bet came from tennis. The bet, placed on Roger Federer at -1.5 sets against Isner netted the bettor 2.53 BTC - nearly €12,000.

Most bets placed

Given the sport’s popularity, the frantic nature of this particular competition, and our lowering betting limits to staggering 10 Satoshi, it’s no surprise that basketball took the throne here. In particular, March Madness has attracted an unprecedented number of bets placed - especially with it being part of our basketball BTC giveaway. Players took advantage of the lowest limits in crypto to jump all over the books.

Most active bettors

It’s hardly a surprise that the most popular sport in the world is also the one with the most active bettors here at Cloudbet. With the UEFA Champions League reaching its Quarter-Final stages, it’s only natural that to see punters go for the most competitive tournament in the world - especially as Ronaldo and Messi made it through, and a dream final confrontation between the scoring titans still on the table.

Noteworthy comebacks with noteworthy payouts

Last but not least, here are some noteworthy comebacks that paid out big.

  • United qualifying into the Champions League final, at odds of 20/1 - quite a feat for the club at this stage.

  • The biggest upset of the month happened in tennis, as Number 1 seed David Goffin lost in the Phoenix Challenger QF after being set up to Salvatore Caruso. One lucky punter managed to bet on Caruso at 18/1 at the start of the second set, banking 0.188 BTC with his call.

That’s all for March - stay tuned to the latest sports opportunities and previews here at the Cloudbet Blog, and until next month.
