DirectBet Sportsbook Closes

May 22, 2017

The online direct betting sportsbook known as Directbet (SBA Rating C-) announced its closure last night. Directbet Sportsbook allowed people to place their wagers by sending bitcoin to an address. If the wager won, the player would receive the winnings back in their BTC account. They later started accepting Ethereum, another cryptocurrency.

We first reviewed DirectBet back in October of 2016. You can see that review here: Directbet Sportsbook Review

This morning Directbet users logged on to the website and saw this message, which we have copied and pasted here (from their website):
