    After the huge surge in interest that bitcoin gambling has seen over the past year, I would have expected that bitcoin sportsbooks would be improving. In the case of Nitrogen Sports, things seem to be getting worse. I've noticed over the past few months that grading has gotten much slower. It's also taking them much longer to process withdrawals.

    Should I be getting worried?

    No, I don't think you should be getting worried. Nitrogen Sports still have a good rating amongst most sports bettors and there is no reason for concern at the minute. My guess is that they are a victim of their own success and that the recent influx of new crypto currency gamblers has stretched them to their limits.

    Nitrogen messed up last week by allowing people to bet on games that already had started. I've had problems with them in the past when it comes to grading. They frequently make mistakes so be sure to double check your winning bet.

    The NFL season kicks off next week so I really hope they've invested in a few more staff or the delays are only going to get worse over the next 6 months. They shouldn't offer so many betting markets if they aren't able to grade them efficiently.
  5. Grading has been pretty slow at CloudBet too for the past week too. The NFL season starts in a few day so I really hope both Nitrogen and CloudBet have spent the summer training up new supports staff to handle the influx of new customers that are going to pour in.

    the nitrogen sports website also seems to go down every sunday right before big nfl games. it's so frustrating. i wish they'd get their act together and fix this.

    Now that the NFL season is over, I suspect that all sports will get graded much faster.

    Some good news from Nitrogen Sports, you can now avail of 1 free withdrawal every 6 days compared to 1 every 14 days. They say that this is due to the fact that bitcoin network transactions have gotten much cheaper on the past couple of months. If you want to make more than 1 withdrawal per week then you'll need to cover the cost of network transactions yourself, which shouldn't be more than a dollar or 2 given the current fee rates.

    Cryptocurrency exchanges have gotten very laggy and slow over the past year also due to unprecedented demand so I don't think this problem is limited to Nitrogen. They are probably having trouble hiring quality staff like the rest of the industry.

    what is nitrogen grading like these days? with the world cup starting this week they are going to see a huge influx of betting so i hope they have enough staff.
  11. Any time I've used Nitrogen Sports recently it has taken them about an hour or less to grade the event. Not quiet as fast as 5Dimes or Pinnacle but it's certainly not slow. I don't know what people are complaining about to be honest.

    Some of their World Cup grading has been ridiculously slow. It took almost 2 hours to grade a group game last week and I missed the next game as a result.

    What's the rush? 2 hours seems reasonable to me. If you can't wait 2 hours to pick up your winnings then maybe you can't afford to be gambling.
