Let Cloudbet Casino fill the hole in the sporting calendar
With the unprecedented cancellation of much of the global professional sporting calendar due to Coronavirus, Cloudbet's bitcoin casino can provide an exciting distraction. Here's why:
Free Play on all slots
Cloudbet's casino includes over 300 fun slots, with exciting themes and special features - all of them are available to play for free. You don't even need an account.
Live Dealer Experience
Corona Virus unfortunately makes it impossible to visit a bricks-and-mortar casino, but the next best thing is a Live Dealer casino experience and Cloudbet offers up to tables across all classic table games. If you like the prospect of massive multipliers try Lightning Roulette or Lightning Baccarat.
Join Our Big Winners
Cloudbet has been operating a bitcoin casino since 2014, and in that time has produced some huge winners.
While betting on our Nordic legend-based slot game, Troll Hunters, in March 2017, one player placed a wager of a mere 0.16 BTC, and as luck had it, in a single spin, got back a life-changing 160 BTC. That huge win alone represented 1000% return on her stake.
Most people would have been more than happy to call it a day and cash out, but not this player. She didn’t stop there, and this confidence was handsomely rewarded. In a short period of time, she went on to scoop 56 BTC more adding up to a grand total of 216 BTC in a single play session, bringing the overall profits to 1340%.
