However, a lot of other forms of betting such as roulette and jackpot had services that found a way to avoid the ban. Although, pretty much all of these are banned in the US where most of the gambling used to occur. That is why a lot of the old platforms did not decide to re-open because they thought that most people wouldn’t visit them.
Types of Flips
There are two main types of CS:GO flipping games. There are the services that use alternate forms of money such as emeralds or coins which can be obtained by depositing your CS:GO skins.
Then there are those that make you deposit skins right into the upcoming flip. That means instead of a 50/50 round, one person will have a higher chance because the value of your skins must be within ten dollars of the other person.
How to start?
The first step to start betting here is to deposit items onto the service. Most websites have a deposit tab where you can trade your skins to the platform. But first, you have to sign into your steam account. You don’t have to worry about the service stealing your account because steam doesn’t give your details to the website and instead just uses the steam API which only gives the general information such as your ID number.
When you have logged in, you will be taken to a screen which shows all the items in your inventory. The next step is to select the items you want to deposit and then accept the trade offer that the website’s bot sends you. This only applies if you are using a club that converts your skins into coins, emeralds or some other kind of currency. If you are playing on a service where you directly deposit into a flip, the process is similar except you don’t press a tab but instead press a join match button which will take you to a deposit screen.
The problem with this kind of platform is that you need to deposit a certain amount of money and if you don’t have the skins to do this, you can’t do the round. This is the part where you can most likely get scammed. Some fake CS:GO coinflip websites will send you a trade offer without the security code in it. A lot of people lose their stuff here and they have no proof against the scammers because it was their own fault. So, make sure that you only use popular websites and always check that the trade offer they send you includes the correct security code.
After this, you need to check whether the service is fair or not because you don’t want to get scammed. All legitimate platforms will have a section called ‘provably fair’. If you click on it, it will bring you to another page which shows you the algorithm which they use to choose who is the winner of the round. If you don’t believe it, there should also be a place where you can enter the server seed of your coinflip to see why you won or lost.
There is also another scam that could occur to you. Someone might randomly add you on steam and will say that they are a moderator at a gambling platform. They will then proceed to giving you a dodgy link which takes you to their website. When you deposit your skins, there is no way to withdraw and you have lost your items. Make sure that you block them straight away and report them as well.
The next option you have is what you want to play your bet on. There is the traditional betting on one of the counter strike sides, either terrorist or counter terrorist. Then there is also the option to bet on different colors and those are the only two choices. Most services use the CS:GO sides betting but there are one or two that allow you to bet on colors.
The last step is to find out how much you are willing to spend to win. This is a very important step because there are some high-end websites and then some low-end. This means that some platforms have people flipping low amounts and other services have people playing high amounts. If you figure out which section you are in, finding a website suited to you will be very easy.
The very last step only occurs to some people. Withdrawing is quite an easy task from most CS:GO coinflip games, however, it only applies to websites that use an alternate currency. If you deposit directly into a flipping round, you will receive a trade offer after the match if you win, which will include your items as well as most of the other player’s stuff. The service will take some items as ‘tax’. All you have to do is press the ‘withdraw’ tab and a screen will appear with all the website’s offerings. Select what you want and a trade offer will instantly be sent to you.
Good luck in your gambling journey, and we hope that you will win many bets in the future!
