In the eyes of crypto bettors, Cloudbet is the great innovator. It was the first site to offer crypto betting of both the casino and sports varieties, and the first crypto site to offer in-play betting. Along with a wealth of other firsts, the reliably popular crypto casino is now offering a one-of-a-kind loyalty program called Marketplace that rewards regular bettors on both the casino and sporting sides. As you’d expect from an endlessly ambitious operator like Cloudbet, some of the rewards are pretty outstanding. Others, meanwhile, are a little more realistic.
Breaking with the norm of offering boilerplate bonuses for first deposits and reload promotions, Cloudbet is giving Lightning Points for each real money wager placed by a customer. The “Lightning” part of the name is a nice little riff on the casino name; after all, you can’t have lightning without clouds. The points, however, are no joke. Cloudbettors can collect their points and let them accumulate until the point where they can be exchanged for prizes.
This being Cloudbet, some of the prizes are incredibly eye-catching. Collect enough points and you’ll be able to exchange them in Marketplace for: a Rolex Daytona Rainbow watch; a seven-day holiday on the private island paradise of Velaa in the Maldives; or a newly-minted Lamborghini Huracan with a 5.2 liter V10 engine. Those will all set you back quite a few points, of course, so there are also some more down-to-Earth rewards to be considered too.
Primarily, the rewards outside of the fantasy tier described above are all related to betting on the Cloudbet site. There are some standard betting bonuses to cash in along with free bets and free spins on the site. There are also custom casino bonuses that can be tailored to your own personal taste, and will be a demonstrable improvement on the usual bonuses at online casinos.
Cleverly, Cloudbet has developed a system of sliders that allows the bettor to fine-tune their casino or sportsbook bonus to their own specific tastes. One slider allows you to increase or decrease the amount of your bet. The other allows you to change the wagering requirements attached to any win you may have. If you’re clever with your points, you could use Marketplace to combine a high stake with extremely low wagering requirements, meaning that your chances of walking away with genuinely meaningful winnings are significantly increased.
The timing of this launch has not come about by accident, of course. This has come in tandem with a promotion running for the duration of the World Cup, where every bet on the tournament bestows double Lightning Points on the bettor. At the same time, Cloudbet has also launched a Referrals program that means Cloudbettors will get commission points on every bet placed by a friend they have referred to the casino. It might be a while before anyone manages to redeem the car or the holiday, but we’re sure Cloudbet will let us know when it happens!
