Bitcoin sports betting exchange exbet.io has launched its beta as Betfair overhauls its commission structure following growing unrest.
Exchange users have long complained about high commission rates, and Betfair’s move looks unlikely to solve the issue for many.
Sensing an opportunity, exbet.io, which is now in live beta mode ahead of a full launch later this year, is offering a headline 1 percent commission – half that of Betfair’s lowest rate.
This will translate to big savings for high volume users who make the switch.
A spokesperson from exbet.io told CryptoGamblingNews.com: “We’re fully focused on the exbet.io beta and we’ve been getting superb feedback from an army of exchange and crypto veterans.
“As far as Betfair’s recent commission changes are concerned, it’s too little too late in our opinion.
“It’s quite a coincidence that they made this announcement as exbet.io went into beta promising an industry-busting 1% commission.”
The Bitcoin-native betting exchange will launch with a range of major sports presented within a slick UI.

As with all of CasinoFair’s titles, of which there are now more than 20, Cyber Hunter 2080 delivers real-time gaming using the state-of-the-art FunFair casino platform and FUN token.
The instant gaming experience is far better than what you’d find at many other decentralised casinos where gaming events often lag as they’re verified by the blockchain. To open a game session here, there is a short wait as Cyber Hunter 2080 goes off-chain, but this is negligible considering the longevity and variety of gameplay on offer.
In our opinion, the minimal wait to open and close a session is a price worth paying to ensure not just the real-time experience in-game, but also the Guaranteed Fair technology the game uses, allowing for instant payouts, guaranteed winnings and provably fair randomness.
This is all just complementary to the first-class gaming experience though. Cyber Hunter 2080 comes alive as soon as you enter the futuristic world of the game board. Pulsing neon lights, mysterious 3D game characters and a Hollywood-esque soundtrack all come together to immerse you into this sinister world of tomorrow.
The slot itself does not disappoint. With 20-paylines to win on, four high-paying and eight low-paying symbols, as well as enhanced reels, players could be in for a big payday. Seek out the Wild police shield, driving up payouts which, as with all CasinoFair games, can be withdrawn instantly on game end.
Cyber Hunter 2080 looks and plays just like any of the best slot titles at traditional online casinos, and like them, it offers additional features that allow the player to enjoy it as they want to. Autospin allows players to run the game for 100 consecutive spins, Quick Play mode fast tracks the slot visuals, allowing for quicker, faster wins, while you can choose whether to toggle sound effects and music on or off, although we’d suggest leaving them on for maximum effect.
Where Cyber Hunter 2080 excels and takes it beyond other slot offerings at other decentralised casinos is the additional bonus features and mini-games.
The Free Spins feature kicks in after finding three Energy Canisters on the reels. The round runs through a series of ten risk-free spins with bigger payouts than even the standard game with only top paying symbols revealed. It’s not rare either, we lucked out a few times in our test and it was very welcome in topping up our FUN balance.
Unique to this slot is the Hunter Bonus. On locating three drone symbols during the Free Spins round, players will be transformed to the city map where they’ll deploy these drones to hunt down data caches free FUN. With an equal chance of hitting a high and low payout city zone, thousands in FUN can be paid out on top of the winnings from the free spins.
These two features are huge complements to the fast-paced Cyber Hunter 2080 game, keeping it fresh and profitable, ensuring boredom never creeps in.
With 20 lines to play and a max stake of 15 FUN per line, the biggest individual win outside of features can be found by hunting down the Wild police shield across all five columns, paying out 1,000 times for 15,000 FUN. Including bonus features, it’s claimed that up to 2,500 times stake can be paid out in FUN, while the theoretical percentage return to player is a generous 95%, much higher than land-based casino slots and a significant proportion of online slots.
Cyber Hunter 2080 might drag players into a dark, futuristic world but it’s definitely not all doom and gloom as the genre often suggests. Instead, CasinoFair players will find this slot one of the most immersive around. With fantastic graphics and soundtrack, and huge wins on offer in the varied bonus games, they’re sure to find an enjoyable experience that will keep them coming back time and again.
