Stake.com is a name that undoubtedly comes to mind in discussions about crypto gambling. The brand originates from the people behind Primedice, one of the first pure crypto gambling sites. I really appreciate their in-house sportsbook, as it offers a wide variety of sports events and quite competitive odds on several markets. It is a welcome change of pace from the hundreds of white-label bookies. Furthermore, crypto-only payments work smoothly and are a huge plus for players that prefer betting under the radar. Just remember to monitor the current crypto market trends, as you are not protected against the infamous crypto volatility. Nonetheless, I would like to see some upgrades in certain areas. Features like Bet-Builder and Partial/Auto Cash Out are a must nowadays. Also, a few more sports promotions would be a good addition. In any case, Stake is on a good path, and I am curious to see how their UK launch will roll out. I believe that every bettor familiar with cryptocurrencies should try them out.
