Bitcoins are all over the headlines, but did you know there are websites that pay out "free" Bitcoins for visiting them or doing tasks? They're called Bitcoin faucets, and they're a great way for you to get into Bitcoins without mining, winning it through playing online poker with Bitcoins, wiring money to a Bitcoin exchange, or buying through LocalBitcoins.

Before we get to the faucets, Bitcoin is a virtual crypto currency—I penned a Bitcoin primer a while back if you're looking for more information. Bitcoin faucets aren't going to make you rich, but these are faucets I can personally attest pay out when and how they say they will as I've collected 0.34 BTC from them.

The first Bitcoin faucets were designed as promotional vehicles to get people interested and involved in Bitcoins back when a Bitcoin was worth a few pennies. A few people who had tons of Bitcoins that weren't worth much at the time thought that if they got them into the hands of more people, it would generate interest.

Today's so-called faucets are much more of a business model. Most of them work by paying out tiny fractions of a Bitcoin in exchange for loading a page full of ads or for watching videos. I also have one site to show you that's not a faucet, per se, but rather a site that pays Bitcoins in exchange for doing crowd-sourced tasks.

Terms:

  • A satoshi is currently the smallest fraction of a Bitcoin, or 0.00000001BTC. 1,000 satoshis would is 0.00001000BTC.

You'll need a Bitcoin wallet, either a standalone client wallet or a wallet from a service like Blockchain.info.

Cheat Sheet

If you don't need the full rundown on each site, here are quick links in order of my preference.

My Favorite Faucets
Site Payouts Timing Description/Comments
FreeBitco.in 318 satoshis to .318BTC Hourly Hands down my favorite faucet. Payouts tied to US$200 worth of Bitcoin, so it fluctuates up and down with the price of Bitcoin.
FreeDoge.co.in 15 Dogecoin to 1,500,000 Dogecoin Hourly Sister site to FreeBitco.in. Payouts are tied to $200 worth of Dogecoin. You'll need a Dogecoin wallet to sign up.
BitcoinGet Up to 20,000 satoshis per task N/A The best site for earning Bitcoins for doing tasks. I have earned the most from this site.
BitcoinReward Up to 12,000 satoshis per task N/A Another site for earning Bitcoin for doing tasks. Some tasks are complementary to what BitcoinGet offers.
New - BTC25.net Between 525 and 6,951,712 satoshis 25 Minutes Great new faucet that pays 525, 1,325, 9,898, 51,091, 258,060, 1,250,579, or 6,951,712 satoshis every 25 minutes! That makes it one of the best faucets anywhere. The odds of each payout are posted clearly on the faucet, too.
New - CoinGamez (was SpinAndW.in) Up to 50,000 satoshis 15 Minutes A new favorite, SpinAndW.in pays out to your Microwallet.org wallet. It pays between 50 and 50,000 satoshis per spin—the faucet doesn't specify, but it's likely weighted. It's fun, and you can play every 15 minutes, making it a monster.
BitcoinZebra 100 satoshis to 1,000 satoshis, plus free bonus opportunity Hourly I love this faucet. It's cute and it's fun. You win 100, 200, 300, 400, or 1,000 satoshis per visit. There's also a free bonus opportunity based on rolling virtual dive that can pay up to 3,000X!
Moon BitCoin Variable 5 Minutes New twist on the faucet - Adds 1 satoshi every few seconds, slowing down as it goes. You get the most satoshis per minute by collecting every 5 minutes, but if you have to wait longer, you'll get a larger payout.
DailyFreeBits 100 satoshis to 1,200 satoshis Hourly Straight forward faucet that pays up to 1,200 satoshis per visit. It's weighted, but I've hit the top mark many times. Recently increased to an hourly faucet.
Qoinpro Multiple cryptocurrencies N/A This site is unique in my list. Just sign up and get daily Bitcoins, Litecoins, Dogecoins, Feather Coins, Infinite Coins, and Fedora Coins, without you having to do anything more. You get a bonus by getting other folks to sign up.
GratisBitco.in 10 Satoshis to 2,500 satoshis Hourly Free Bitcoins every hour by rolling virtual dice—payment based on the number you roll.
DailyBitcoins 50 satoshis to 100,000 satoshis Hourly Minimum 50 satoshi payout, but there are 800 or so bonus prizes (recently reduced) that pay up to 10,000 satoshis (recently reduced) per visit. Just reload the page until you get a prize you want.
Bitcoiner.net 200 satoshis to 1,000 satoshis Daily This daily faucet pays between 200 and 500 satoshis per day, with a loyalty bonus that pays up to double when you visit every day. Check out my full review for more details.
Litecoiner.net 0.00001000LTC to 0.00005000LTC Daily A sister site to the faucet above. You'll need a Litecoin wallet to sign up.
BitVisitor 10 satoshis up 2,400 satoshis 5 Minutes This faucet pays you Bitcoins in exchange for loading up webpages. Payments have been decreased. Check out my full review for more info.
CoinCheckIn 15 satoshis to 100,000 satoshis 5 Minutes

Changed domain to CoinCheckIn as of 8/31/2014. All account info and balanaces remain intact. Recently reduced payments significantly while the operators work on their business model. Payouts are based on a random number generator. You hit a bonus on an average of 1 in 18 spins. It's very fast.

BTCRock 175 satoshis with bonus opportunity 50 Minutes You get 6 tries to hit a free 3,000 satoshi bonus, with each try paying 35 satoshis by itself. That's 175 satoshis minimum, plus the bonus opportunity. These prizes represent decreases while the operators work on their business model.
Click2Dad 350 satoshis to 3,000 Satoshis 10 Seconds Site has been slow to pay since I first added it, but the operators say they are working on it. View "ads" in exchange for Bitcoin. Ads are webpages, many of which are in Russian. Most require just 10 seconds, making it a very high payout. Ads reset after 12 hours.

BitChest Faucets

(These faucets all pay into one BitChest account for fast accumulation and payouts. This is a good format that's easy to use. See my full review for more information.)

Update 10/30/2014: BitChest hasn't paid out since August 31st. The site and its faucets haven't said anything, but I noticed there are no ads running on the faucets. Makes me think they lost their ad privileges, so who knows what will happen.

Site Payout Timing Redirects Description/Comments
DailyFreeBits 100 satoshis to 1,200 satoshis Hourly   Straight forward faucet that pays up to 1,200 satoshis per visit. It's weighted, but I've hit the top mark many times. Recently changed to hourly. Also listed with my favorite faucets.
Bitcoinker.com 100 satoshis to 300 satoshis 15 Minutes   400 to 800 satoshis per hour for the really motivated, but I have it in my hourly rotation.
LandOfBitcoins.com 2 satoshis (automatic) 1 Minute   I like this site. It has an automatic faucet that lets you accumulate 2 satoshis per minute. You just have to reload it every 15-30 minutes. There's also an automatic guide through other faucets that some folks seem to like.

Readded - Bitcoin4free

1 satoshi to 100,000 satoshis Hourly   Just readded Bitcoin4free to my list as it is once again paying to Microwallet. The new payouts are from 1 satoshi to 100,000 satoshis. Absent information to the contrary, that's likely weighted.
New - LotOfBitcoins 200 to 50,000 satoshis 13 Hours   Straight forward faucet paying 200, 250, 300, 400, 1,000, 5,000, or 50,000 satoshis. Absent other information, it's likely weighted, but even the base makes it worth the visit.

New - Flying Faucet 100 satoshis to 10,000 satoshis Hourly   Straight forward, easy to use. The Flying Faucet has weighted odds to win 100, 200, 300, 1,000, or 10,000 satoshis per visit

100Satoshi 100 satoshis Daily   Straight forward daily faucet.

Readded - Bitcoin-Ace Faucet

40 or 41 satoshis Daily   Just added Bicoin-Ace Faucet to my list because it is once again paying what it says. That's currently 40 or 41 satoshis every 24 hours.
The Free Bitcoin Faucet 1 satoshi to 100 satoshis Hourly Aggressive pop-up ads. Payments recently reduced to 1 to 100 satoshis/
Sandy Faucet 100 satoshis to 300 satoshis Hourly Redirects Faucet still claims to pay from 100-300 satoshis per visit, but it appears to actually pay 1-50 satoshis. With a requirement to accumulate 3,000 satoshis, payouts are very, very slow. Use with caution.

I would really advise TMO to get out of the business of (accidental) BitCoin promotion.  For all these libertarian dreams of an independent, unregulated currency, it’s not as if that’s never been done before in the U.S.  We used to have that and the economy was so prone to boom and bust panics, that’s why the Fed was created.  The belief that a non-fiat currency will cure our economic ills is a pipe dream borne out of ignorance and ahistoricity.

No doubt there are some hackers hard at work devising ways around Captcha challenges, obfuscating their IPs, managing massively multiple accounts and then consolidating the harvest.

Edit: that site doesn’t seem to work. Contact me when you have it functioning.

2nd Edit: I can confirm the faucet is now accumulating BTC, as noted by the operator below. Once I’ve done it enough to receive a payout, I’ll add it to the list. Thanks for the heads up and the followup.

Brian,  you’ve written other articles about hardware and software for mining Bitcoins.  I couldn’t resist experimenting with mining so I purchased an Antminer.  Got it set up and working with MacMiner that you recommended about a month ago and got my first payment.  However, I had to restart my Mac and I haven’t been able to get it working since.  The process of setting up and mining Bitcoins is very confusing and I’m not finding a comprehensive step-by-step description of the process anywhere.  Can you provide, or point me to, comprehensive instructions on how to use MacMiner or other software for mining Bitcoins?

domsin

Sorry, I meant Bryan….

Luis Rodriguez

A good site I found that actually pays out, and is clean, and simple to use. Here it is http://www.gamechangerdaily.com

Bryan Chaffin

Thanks for the heads up, Luis. I’ll add that site in my next update (later this week), though 10 satoshis every 24 hours is a markedly low payout. Hopefully they’ll increase that.

Chase Broyles

http://thefreebitcoinfaucet.com/ gives hourly satoshi from 50-150. It’s great.

looper

I have been using freebitco.in since you first posted this article, and have accumulated few mBTC from them.  I don’t want to be ungrateful (five bucks is five bucks), but you might query them about their statistics.  If you go to the website while not logged in, as of today (6/5/14) they show 481 million games played and 348 BTC won by users.  That works out to about 72 satoshis per game.  If you look at their prize structure, they offer a baseline prize, currently 303 satoshis, 0.9885 of the time; they offer prizes that are (10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100000) times the baseline, with odds of (0.01, 0.0008, 0.0004, 0.0002, and 0.0001) respectively.  If you calculate the expectation value of that, then over many plays the expected mean payoff is over 13 times the baseline, with most of it coming from jackpots of 100000 times the baseline!

Like you, the largest prize I’ve ever one (a few times, so far) has been 100x the baseline; as time wears on, I’ll see if I win larger prizes or if their failure to occur becomes statistically significant.  There is a link on the game page describing the game as “provably fair,” but I don’t have the time and may not have the skills to evaluate it; however, if the game is as described, and unless the mean baseline prize over the life of the site was only 5.5 satoshis, then one would expect the total winnings to be a lot more than 72 satoshis per game.  (Or unless the vast majority of winners then lose their winnings in the hi-lo game also offered…)

Their new DogeCoin site, freedoge.co.in, appears to have the same problem.

Bryan Chaffin

Hey looper, I think the stats on “games played” refer to the people who gamble on the high/low engine, rather than the faucet. That gambling engine has a 25% house edge, which is one of the reasons I don’t recommend playing it! I know I’ve always gotten paid precisely what I’ve accumulated in the faucet.

This one faucet has paid me more than any other besides BitcoinGet, which isn’t so much a faucet as a micro-work-for-hire service. The lowest payout from FreeBitco.in makes it one of the highest, if not the highest, hourly faucet. The chance at the higher payments is the icing on the cake to me.

Also, thanks for the tip on their doge faucet. I hadn’t seen that.

looper

Ah - for the reasons you note, I haven’t been playing the hi-lo secondary game, so I forgot about that.  Maybe that’s what it is.  Keep an eye on your statistics, though; I’ve won the 10x prize 20 times and the 100x prize 3 times, which is about right given the ratio between the likelihoods (0.01 and 0.0008)—actually, given 20 at 0.01, I’d only expect 1.6 at 0.0008, so I’m slightly ahead of the odds there.  However, the probability of any prize of 1000x or greater is 0.0007, so one should expect to win about as many of the three largest prizes combined as one wins of the 100x prize (at 0.0008).  Right now I’m looking at the statistics of very small numbers, but if you also have won multiple 100x prizes and none at 1000x or greater, well…  I’ll keep an eye on it, and I’ll follow up here whether I do or do not hit any larger prizes after some more months.

Ed Jones

Very good site (quite new) that pays out every 24 hours. Has a load of offers (like watching videos and filling surveys) and the payouts are pretty big (from 1000 to 400,000 Satoshi on some of them!)

http://www.bitcoinreward.net

Enjoy.

looper

As you note, even the baseline payout from FreeBitco.in is a relatively high hourly faucet, 330 satoshi at the moment.  BitcoinZebra.com offers about 280 satoshi per payout on average, with the free bonus roll; best expectation value over many tries is to roll one die, for 1/6 odds of an additional 280 satoshi or about 330 satoshi total on average.  I just found a new one: BTCRock.biz offers a “gold mining” game that currently offers five tries to hit the jackpot on a 20x20 grid, with an initial payout of 290 satoshi and a jackpot of 5000 satoshi, so the average is around 290 + 5000 * 5 / 400 or about 350 satoshi.  I have received one weekly payout (Mondays if you accumulate 10,000 satoshi), and have hit the jackpot one time in 45 plays (expect one in 80, so I’m slightly ahead).

So I’ve got three faucets totaling about 1000 satoshis per hour; I’m not hurting.  At the risk of sounding ungrateful, though, I’m still waiting to confirm that FreeBitco.in pays 1000x prizes and above; I’ve picked up a few more 10x and one more 100x prizes since my post above.  I can’t look on the higher prizes as “icing on the cake,” though; if the payout is somehow capped at 100x, that’s the difference between a mean prize over time of 13x the baseline and only 1.2x the baseline!  Again, that means FreeBitco.in would be merely one of the best hourly faucets rather than ten times better than the next best, but still…

And not to rag on the company, but unless the value of DogeCoin just skyrocketed 60-fold, their FreeDoge.co.in sister site has a glitch—the baseline prize for my last draw was only 0.1 DOGE rather than 5 or 6 DOGE as before.  That puts the max prize at about $3, rather than $200 as advertised.

looper

Forgot to mention that BTCRock.biz is a 50-minute faucet, since I just hit it once an hour with the other three.  Also, the FreeDoge.co.in glitch is fixed; baseline was back to 6.3 DOGE just now.

Initially, BTCRock.biz offered me 5 tries to find the “gold,” 5000 satoshi, on a 20x20 grid; after 100 games, it said I’d go to “level 1” with a 0.01 BTC jackpot, but instead this is 6 tries to find the “gold” on the 20x20 grid, and the jackpot is down to 4500 satoshi (I just won it).  Now it’s saying that after 400 games I’ll go to “level 2” with a 0.01 BTC jackpot; I’ll keep you posted as to the conditions (how many tries, how big a grid, if the jackpot is really that big).  Also, they say they have to suspend payments for a couple of weeks to await money from their advertisers; they promise a 10% bonus when they resume on July 23rd.  I’ll let you know how that plays out, as well.

http://thefreebitcoinfaucet.com/ and http://sandyfaucet.tk/ are now fixed. Sorry about that.

Thanks, Chase. I updated the faucet list accordingly.

Following up on my BTCRock.biz comment above.  Turns out I misunderstood what they meant by a “jackpot” of 0.01 BTC—according to their FAQ page, they will hold a drawing for this among all users who reach each “level.”  So the 5000 (now 4500) satoshi bonus is not a “jackpot,” and you don’t get 0.01 BTC for finding the “gold” on the 20x20 grid.  They say they haven’t held any drawings yet, so I’ll post again if they do set the details.

It seems that “level 0” gives you five tries (“pickaxes” to look for the gold) per visit, “level 1” gives you six after 100 visits, and I just reached “level 2” after 400 visits with “level 3” in prospect after 900 visits.  It doesn’t look like the payments increase with each level, but rather that you get additional chances per visit to get the bonus.  I have hit the bonus enough times to be convinced that the game is as described, i.e., “fair.”

Finally, I did get my deferred payout on 7/25, along with the promised 10% bonus.  They say the next payout will also not be weekly (nominally Mondays after accumulating 10,000 satoshi, I think) but rather in late August, with a 25% bonus by way of apology.

I’m still waiting to hit the 1000x or higher payouts on freebitco.in; is 9988 still your best roll?  Remember that you should hit one of the higher payouts (1000x to 100000x) about as often as you hit the 100x payout (4 + 2 + 1 vs. 8 out of 10001).

Please help! Your review says that getbitcoinsquick is easy & straightforward. ..but when I go to coinbox.me, it sure looks like I am Not getting paid! Am I doing something wrong?! (Note: all transactions from thefreebitcoins.net are listed as pending, they are 20 satoshi ea., The getbitcoinsquick are supposed to be 100 satoshi ea!)

UncleTom

Thank you for this write-up! I DID figure out my problem!...The getbitcoinsquick page that I go to Says to check balance at coinbox.me!?, yet, per your site, it is Actually at bitchest.! I was going to another faucet that said to check balance at bitchest, and there were payments from getbitcoinsquick! (But please note: the getbitcoinsquick page STILL SAYS TO GO TO COINBOX.ME to check my balance and This is WRONG!)
Thx again,
Tom

This is a good list, actually. I’ve spent a lot of time with faucets, and I approve. :D

Anyway, just wanted to say that it’s not really ideal to open 30000 tabs with all your faucets. It would be nice to link them together, thus comes “faucet rotators”. There are many out there, but none are customizable except for this one I found:

Bottom of page > View source. Download all the HTML/JS files, and edit the g.js with your own faucets. It’s amazing.

Hello Bryan,

Thanks for this review. I have just started testing out some of your top faucets. This is my first week testing out faucets. Personally, the best faucet so far is Bitvisitor. You can easily earn 60 μBTC within 2-3 days and that means approximately 120,000 satoshi per week, which pays much more than all other faucets I’ve tested so far. And as soon as you hit 60 μBTC, you receive the payment instantly!

Second, behind Bitvisitor is Moon BitCoin, where you can earn 60 satoshi every 5 minutes. You can earn satoshi even when you’re offline. I’m approaching 10,000 satoshi or 10 μBTC since starting this week.

Other faucets give similar earnings compared to each other but you earn less than Moon BitCoin.

What do you think of reviewing sites that mine coins (e.g. http://pbmining.com/), instead of just faucets only? And what about PTC sites (e.g. http://www.bitcoinclix.com/)?

BTC Rumor

Can you please add BTCRumor.com/faucet ?

We are paying 150,300 and 450 satoshis.

Thanks

Updates on BTCRock.biz, BitcoinZebra.com, freebit.co.in, and freedogeco.in.  First, in August BTCRock had some trouble with their advertising service withholding payments because somebody click-bombed their ads; they changed their URL to coindigger.biz and resumed operations with new sponsors, however.  Balances accumulated up to that point were placed on hold, and as you noted they cut back prizes and referral rates (they also dropped references on the website to a “jackpot” they were planning to set up), but they did resume making payments for new earnings.  They also promised to pay all “debts,” and I did receive one payment towards that.  However, in early October I noted that the “captcha” was not working, and they have been shut down for a week while they work on it.  So, keep an eye on that one; they have been having some problems, but they genuinely seem to be trying to do right by their members.  By contrast, some of the faucets you’ve removed from this list owed me quite a few satoshis when they went dark…

Just to clarify their game as it stood at the beginning of October—you “mine” for a prize on a 20x20 grid, using “pickaxes” that start at five in number.  You get 35 satoshis per try, and if you hit the prize you get 3700 satoshis; that means each pickaxe is worth 35 + 3700 / 400 = 44.25 satoshis.  You get more pickaxes at quadratic intervals as you play more games—a sixth after 100 games, one more each after 400, 900, 1600, and 2500 games (I’m between the last two so that’s all I’ve seen).

Of the other faucets I use, BitcoinZebra.com is running a promotion through the end of 2014 whereby you get a 50% bonus if you send your payments to a Xapo.com wallet, plus a 5000 satoshi bonus if you sign up for Xapo.com through them, though you can still have your winnings sent directly to any wallet you own.  And my doubts about freebit.co.in and freedogeco.in are growing with time, though again it feels ungrateful to complain since even if the game is not as advertised, their payouts are the most generous I’ve found.  Again, your winnings on these sites are based on a uniformly distributed random number from 0 to 10000; 0-9885 get you a baseline payout (odds of 9886/10001), and 9886-9985, 9986-9993, 9994-9997, 9998-9999, and 10000 get you 10, 100, 1000, 10000, and 100000 times the baseline with odds of 100/10001, 8/10001, 4/10001, 2/10001, and 1/10001 respectively.  This means that you would expect to hit a 1000x prize or larger with 7/10001 odds, so that you should expect to hit one of these after 1429 games on average.  I have played 3102 games on freebit.co.in and 1363 on freedogeco.in, and while I have hit the 10x and 100x prizes on each site about as often as expected from the odds, I have never hit a higher prize on either.  The odds of this happening by chance are (9994/10001)^(3102+1363), or 4.4%.  Has anybody who’s been playing these sites for several months hit any of the larger prizes?  Looked at another way, I don’t see how they could sustain such a generous prize structure as a business model.  The top prize is pegged at $200 value, and on average you should win it after 10,000 games; if you play ten times a day, an average player should pick it up after less than three years.  Is a single person viewing ads (again, this is not a task-based site) worth that much to advertisers?  It’s ten times better than the next most generous site I’ve found.  Is it really reasonable to think that the prize structure is as described?  I’m not going to quit on them, but honesty ought to be worth something.
