- How do bitcoin payments work?
The first step is to download a bitcoin e-wallet to your computer or mobile device.

- Why should I use a bitcoin gaming site rather than one featuring traditional payment methods?
Bitcoin is a great option for a number of reasons:
- Quicker processing times (instant deposits and withdrawals)

- No payment processing costs, and it eliminates the risk of credit card fraud
- Complete control over the security of your funds

- I placed a winning bet, why is it still showing as “pending”?
While all events are graded automatically, in some instances there can be a delay while our system waits on verification of an event’s outcome. In general the delays are shortest for more popular sports and leagues, and slightly longer for lower-profile events. If you have concerns about a delay in grading please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- I made a mistake placing a bet, what can I do?
Once a bet has been accepted it cannot be changed, modified or cancelled. If you made a mistake while placing a bet you may consider placing an equivalent bet on the other side of the wager to negate the outcome.
- What is an Asian handicap?
Asian handicap betting is a form of handicapped betting primarily used in football. There are five different settled outcomes being used: Win, Lose, Tie, Half win and Half lose. Half-win and Half-lose refers to Asian handicap or Over/Under where the line includes a quarter (0.25, 0.75, 1.25 etc.). If a bet is placed on over 2.25, half of the stake is placed on over 2 and half of the stake is placed on over 2.5. If the game ends with exactly two goals (1-1, 2-0 or 0-2) the bet placed on over 2 is settled tie and the bet placed on over 2.5 is settled lose. This is called Half lose. If the game ends with more than two goals the bet is settled win or if it ends with less than two goals the bet is settled lose. If a bet is placed on over 2.75, half of the stake is placed on over 2.5 and half of the stake is placed on over 3. If the game ends with exactly three goals (2-1, 3-0, 1-2 or 0-3) the bet placed on over 2.5 is settled as win and the bet placed on over 3 is settled tie. This is called Half win. If the game ends with more than three goals the bet is settled win or if it ends with less than three goals the bet is settled lose. If the wagering offer on an event includes a draw as a third option and the event ends in a draw, wagers on the draw will be paid, while wagers on either side will be lost.
