UK Players Can Not Bet with Bitcoins at Sportsbetio.uk
Despite its Watford FC sponsorship, Sportsbet.io’s UK brand Sportsbetio.uk does allow UK bettors to deposit and withdraw with Bitcoins.
It was a great moment for the worldwide crypto betting community when Sportsbet.io took over as the shirt sponsor of Watford FC at the begining of the 2019/20 Premier League season. Most Watford FC fans and Premier League fans in general thought that betting with Bitcoins through a major brand as Sportsbet.io is finally home in the UK. But the reality is Sportsbet.io website does not accept players from UK.
Sportsbet.io is licensed in Curacao and even though they list hundreds of jurisdictions as available for registration, UK is not one of them. This is mainly because of the challenging regulations of the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC). Even though UKGC has announced that they will accept Bitcoin as a payment method most bookmakers could not integrate the system to their websites. Understandibly Sportsbet.io could not do the same and therefore does not accept UK players.
Things got confusing when Sportsbet.io’s owner Coingaming launched a UK facing brand Sportsbetio.uk. Be careful with the domain name its full version is www.sportsbetio.uk. When you visit the website you may get confused as Sportsbet is a major crypto betting brand. But they do not accept Bitcoin or any other crypto currency as a payment method. This shocking information is a bit hard to digest but somehow they did the opposite of what their brand name suggests and they do not accept Bitcoin.
