Cloudbet, the pioneering bitcoin sportsbook and casino, has launched a swathe of mixed martial arts offerings to mark the return of the UFC from its Covid-induced hibernation.

Prior to last weekend’s UFC 249, Cloudbet enabled in-play betting, giving customers the flexibility to place new wagers between rounds, and offered the world’s best prices on each fight on the heavily stacked card.

MMA fans can now bet on up to 28 prop markets per fight, on outcomes such as a win by KO/TKO, a drawn result and which round the bout will end.

To add to the excitement, Cloudbet have partnered with Relax Gaming to offer legendary UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer’s very own MMA-inspired slot game. Players waiting for fights to start can try out the “It’s Time!!” slot for a chance to win up to 2500x their bet. The slot game comes as part of a recent deal through which Cloudbet will launch all of the supplier’s high-quality proprietary and third-party aggregated content.

Players can expect similar offerings for all upcoming MMA events on Cloudbet, which relaunched itself last month following its biggest makeover since starting business in 2013. Cloudbet’s top two events by turnover last week were the Ferguson-Gaethje and Cejudo-Cruz title fights from UFC 249.

“The biggest action we saw last weekend was from UFC,” a Cloudbet spokesman said. “There’s clearly pent-up demand for world-class MMA offerings after the two-month layoff.”

The new Cloudbet supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, with more new coins on the way. New players are eligible for a sign-up bonus up to 5 BTC/BCH/ETH. Besides MMA, Cloudbet’s sportsbook offers odds on a multitude of markets around the world, while the Cloudbet casino has hundreds of slots and a live-dealer experience with all classic table games.
