DirectBet has entered the Bitcoin gambling market and is armed with the competitive features that are poised to highlight more action in sports betting.

Dubbed as a revolutionary cryptocurrency sportsbook and racebook, DirectBet specializes in live in-play betting, which doubles the excitement as online bettors are able to feel the action of the live match and place their bets on the game in real time using Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Dogecoin.

To further enhance the online sports betting experience on this platform, plans of accepting more cryptocoins are on their way and a new feature has been introduced that allows players to have better odds for their bets. The Negotiate Your Odds feature is designed to present the advantages of a betting exchange without the complicity or liquidity issues, according to Michelle of DirectBet.

Boasting a comprehensive live coverage and most bets on this year’s FIFA World Cup, the Bitcoin sports betting site also offers a variety of sporting events and bet types. Available for betting are horse racing, soccer, tennis, American football, baseball, and basketball. Other sports like rugby, darts, boxing, mixed martial arts, Australian football, motor sports, and cycling among others are also present.

However, DirectBet does not only cater to sports aficionados because it even allows bets for the World Series of Poker, specifically on the Main Event winner and on The Big One for One Drop $1,000,000 buy-in tournament.

Meanwhile, members are in for a great treat as DirectBet Bitcoin sportsbook now holds its Sports Betting Contest exclusively for them. Running until July 13, the current contest awards any member who posts in the official DirectBet Bitcointalk thread a winning bet on any sport at odds higher than the previous winner, according to its website.

The prize increases by 0.001 BTC for every winner and anyone who qualifies and meets the requirements will win the corresponding prize before the contest ends in almost two weeks’ time. Likewise, some rescue challenges are available for winning extra prizes easier.
