Live Dealer Experience

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%.

Read about our biggest ever casino winners

Cloudbet is one of the first bitcoin sportsbook and casino operators in the crypto space. We have hundreds of bitcoin slots and dozens of table games to play, with free play options to try before you buy in our bitcoin casino. You can also read more on betting strategies, bitcoin 101, and in-depth crypto stories here in the Cloudbet Blog.
