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.
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.

FreeBitco.in

[Update 7/18/2014: FreeBitco.in is a faucet that ties payouts to $200 worth of Bitcoin. The lesson here is that when the price of Bitcoin goes down, you can earn more at these faucets.]

This is my favorite faucet because it has an element of gamble without any risk. First of all, click on the "Free Play" link at the top of the site. That's the faucet part of this site.

Once there, you can "roll" once per hour and a random number generator will toss back a number between 1 and 10,000. The higher the number, the bigger the payout, and as of this writing, the highest number pays out more than 0.31756113BTC. At 1 in 10,000, that makes every roll exciting.

In the screenshot below, you can see the payout table, but it changes frequently as the price of Bitcoin fluctuates. I have received many larger payouts, and in the screenshot below you can see my highest roll—9988—good enough for the 4th highest payout. I'm not sure that it's truly a random number generator, but even the lowest payout makes this the best faucet around, and I've hit the higher payouts many, many times.

Payouts happen once a week, and I've earned more than 0.01BTC from just this faucet. There are all sorts of stats to look at, both personal and site-wide.

Note: I am testing a sister site called FreeDoge.co.in, an hourly Dogecoin faucet that pays roughly 6 to 600,000 Dogecoin. You'll need a Dogecoin wallet to sign up.

The screenshot below shows my best roll to-date, 9988, good enough for 0.00021978BTC. w00t!

BitcoinGet

This is the site that's paid me the most—I've earned 0.2BTC—but it's also the site that has required the most effort. BitcoinGet pays for three things, crowd-sourced tasks, watching videos, and a category called "Special Offers" for filling out surveys and giving all your personal information to third-party companies. I don't recommend the last option, but the first two work just fine.

Performing tasks is the thing that most people will find interesting. These range from doing Google searches, recording search result ranking and offering feedback on web design, to determining the meaning of a passage of text, to trying different CAPTCHA methods, to flagging adult images, to checking for expiration dates on deals.

The key here is to only do tasks that are worth your time. If a task pays µ6BTC and takes 10 minutes, you're wasting your time. That said, with today's BTC value in the US$400-$450 range, some tasks pay as much as µ400BTC and take very little time. They still might not be worth your time on an hourly basis, but if your goal is to get Bitcoins without paying cash, free is free.

Please note that the tasks are refreshed throughout the day. If you find a task you like doing, come back tomorrow at the same time and you'll probably find it again.

Lastly, note that prices paid float up and down as the price of Bitcoin changes. The less BTC is worth, the more BTC they pay. If your goal is to accumulate Bitcoins, spend more time on the faucets when the price is low.

BitcoinGet pays once a day when you accumulate more than µ100BTC, and it's regular as clockwork.

BitcoinReward is a similar site. It pays out different rates, but it seems to have some jobs that BitcoinGet doesn't have. I'd go with BitcoinGet first and then check in with BitcoinReward for other jobs.

BitcoinZebra

This is one of my top faucets. It pays out on Sunday if you reach 5,500 satoshis, a figure that's easy to hit over a week. I can confirm that I've received multiple payments, all of them as advertised.

BitcoinZebra is an hourly faucet that offers a "variable" chance at one of five payouts, 100, 200, 300, 400, or 1,000 satoshis, making it one of the better paying faucets. Plus, they offer a free chance to multiply each payout by rolling virtual dice. You can't lose your original payout, but you could multiply it by x2, x5, x30, x200, or even x1000.

You do so by rolling virtual dice, as shown in the screenshots below. If you choose to roll one die and hit a 6, your payout is doubled. I've done that scores of times. Choose two dice and hit 6 on both, your payout is multiplied by 5. This goes up to five dice, and if you hit 6 on all five (1 in 7,776 chance), your payout will be multiplied by 1,000, for up to 1 million satoshis (0.01BTC).

Since it costs you nothing to try, well, giddy up! Like I said, I love this faucet.

Moon Bitcoin

This is a Microwallet-based fauce, but it's quickly become one of my favorites. Accordingly, I'm adding it to my Favorites list, too. The folks behind Moon Bitcoin bring new approach to the faucet concept. Once you enter your Microwallet account number, you begin accumulating satoshis. At first, it's very fast, one satoshi every few seconds, but that rate decays. You can collect roughly 50 satoshis every five minutes, which is roughly 600 per hour—but that requires 12 visits during the hour. If you visit every hour, you'll get a little more than 200 satoshis. If you visit once per day, you'll collect roughly 800 satoshis per visit. This format makes it a great faucet no matter what your style is.

Daily Free Bits

Here's a three hour faucet that I like. Daily Free Bits pays from 100-1200 satoshis with every visit, and those numbers seem fairly random as I've gotten results all across that spread. It's pretty straight forward: Enter your Microwallet address and the "Go" button. If you're eligible (i.e. it's been more than three hours), you get a CAPTCHA that you enter, and boom, free Bitcoins in your Microwallet account once you reach 3,500 satoshis, which won't take long.

See my Microwallet section below for more information.

QoinPro

Update June 1st, 2014: QoinPro added Dogecoin, an altcoin that has proven very popular—enough to raise sufficient Dogecoin to sponsor a NASCAR racing team.  The site also increased payouts for all of its coins and added a loyalty program that will increase payments by 0.1 percent per day.

This site is fascinating, in part because the company behind it has not revealed its full business plan. What it's started off with, though, is a site that pays out free Bitcoins, Litecoins, Dogecoin, FeatherCoins, FedoraCoins, and InfiniteCoins every day without you doing a thing except for registering and activating your account.

You get the highest payout when you first sign up, but thereafter your daily payments are quite small. In both cases, you get each of the coins above with more alt-coins coming. Plus, you're not doing a thing to receive it. You don't even have to visit the site, but Qoinpro says this is just the beginning and that their business model will become clear as they continue to roll out features.

That's all pretty cool, but the real benefits of this site come from getting your friends to sign up, because you get a percentage of their signup bonus and daily payouts, up to four levels deep with more levels to come. In addition, your own daily bonus increases as you get more referrals.

QoinPro

GratisBitco.in

Here's another super fun faucet that lets you get your gamble on without risking anything. GratisBitco.in is an hourly faucet that pays out based on a "roll" of six virtual 6-sided dice. Roll below 21 and get 10 satoshis. Roll above 21 and get 50 satoshis. Roll exactly 21 and get 100 satoshis. Roll 36 and get 2,500 satoshis.

Sounds pretty easy, right? Well, keep in mind that rolling a 6 on all six 6-sided dice is a 1 in 46,656 event. You could get lucky, but don't quit your day job planning on binking a 36 every hour.

Please note that the free faucet is on the home page. There's also a "Play Dice" page that allows you to gamble with the Bitcoins you've earned. I am not recommending that you actually gamble, and am not endorsing the "Play Dice" page.

This site says it pays out when your balance reaches 0.0001BTC, but I've actually gotten payments at 0.0006BTC. It will take many visits to reach either amount, but each visit is fun!

GratisBitco.in

GratisBitco.in

DailyBitcoins

This site is closer to a straight faucet. Once an hour you can load the page, enter your Bitcoin wallet address, enter the CAPTCHA, and get 50 satoshis. Done and done. But, DailyBitcoins ups the ante a bit by including roughly 1,200 larger rewards every day, up to 0.01BTC at a time.

There's even a schedule of those prizes—they're metered out every few minutes—so you can optimize your obsessive refreshing along with everyone else. This might not be worth it on an absolute hourly basis, but if you want to get free Bitcoins, it works.

Update 6/27/2014: The number of extra prizes has been adjusted to 1,200 per day. This makes it much easier to get the larger prizes if you have the patience to reload. Check the "Prizes" tab for the upcoming schedule of bigger payouts.

DailyBitcoins will pay out within 24 hours once you reach a balance of 10,000 satoshis. If you're going to use this site regularly, take the time to register so that it remembers your Bitcoin wallet address.

Bitcoiner.net and Litecoiner.net

Bitcoiner.net is a daily faucet, and as such you won't accumulate Bitcoins very fast. In a few weeks, I've earned 0.00133BTC. It's also ad-supported, and as such requires little more than a few seconds a day.

There's a random element and a long-term reward program, too. The amount offered is reset every hour (the 24-hour cycle begins at midnight GMT), so if the amount being offered in any particular hour is too low, come back later.

There's also a "prize multiplier." It's a little weird, so let me explain. When you check that you want an "automatic payout," the site pays out once you reach 0.00013BTC. But, every day that you check that box (when submitting), you get a cumulative prize multiplier of 0.05x per day, starting at 1x and going up to a maximum of 2x cumulatively.

The thing is you get a message that says, "you've checked the 'I want a payout today', but you haven't accumulated [the] required 0.00013 BTC." It sounds like you did something wrong, but you didn't. Just check that box every time, and whatever amount is on the screen gets multiplied before being added to your total.

Tip: Payout amounts currently range from a low of 0.00000220BTC to 0.00000500BTC. I pull the trigger any time I see a payout at or above 0.00000440BTC. As noted above, that amount is then multiplied by the multiplier before being added to your balance.

Bitcoiner.net Screenshots

Bitcoiner.net - Make sure you check that "I want a payout today" checkbox each time!

It has a sister site called Litecoiner.net that pays out in Litecoins. Litecoin, or LTC, is the biggest so-called "alt-coin," the catch-all name for Bitcoin copycats. LTC tends to be worth from 1 percent to 3 percent of a Bitcoin. You'll need a separate Litecoin wallet and address to use that site.

[Update: 6/27/2014 - Litecoiner just recently changed its structure, paying out twice as many Litecoins per visit (up to 0.00002500LTC, which doubles with the multiplier). The site also pays out much sooner at 0.00100000LTC]

BitVisitor

[Update 7/18/2014]: BitVisitor has slashed payouts to range from 10 satoshis to 90 satoshis. The faucet has done this before only to increase payments later. I'll update this description when that happens agian. - Bryan]

I like BitVisitor for two reasons. The first is that it pays, and the second is that I've been exposed to some new things from their advertisers. BitVisitor pays from 10-90 satoshis [Updated 7/18/2014] for loading up a webpage. You have to leave it up for five minutes, and you don't get credit until you click a green "Next" button that appears after the five minutes have elapsed. All told, I've earned more than 0.06BTC.

You don't have to pay attention to the webpages, of course, but I tend to notice new ones as they come in, so I'd say it works for the advertisers.

This is what it looks like:

BitVisitor

CoinCheckIn

Update on 8/31/2014: Changed domains to CoinCheckIn.com. All accounts information and account balances remain intact and were automatically moved to the new domain. The next payment to users will be on 9/8/2014. This is all part of rejiggering the business model, as mentioned below.

LuckyCheckIn was near the top of my list, but they're run into problems with their ad accounts. That's resulted in slow payments, and now in reduced payments. But, the operators have been working on their business model, and back payments are even now being paid (as of 8/29/2014).

Here's how it works:

When you "Check In," you get a time stamp of the hour, minute, and second. Then a random number generator generates a "Lucky Time." If you match the hour, minute, or second, you get a bonus (explained below). If you match two a much larger bonus, and if you match all three, you get 100,000 satoshis (0.001BTC).

If you match none, you get a 15 satoshi consolation price (called a "Check In" that gets added to your balance shortly before they pay out).

Match the hour and get 70 satoshis. You have a 1 in 24 chance of doing so. Match the hour or minute and you get 200 satoshis. You have a 1 in 30 chance of matching either. All together, you have a 1 in 18 chance of matching one of the three. I've matched one of these three dozens of times.

If you match the hour and either the minute or second, you win 750 satoshis. You have a 1 in 1,440 chance of doing this. I'm running hot, because I've done it once, as shown in the image below (which was taken when payments were higher).

If you match the minute and second, you win 1,850 satoshis. There's a 1 in 3,600 chance of doing that, and I've never done it.

And if you match all three—the hour, minute, and second, you win 100,000 satoshis, or 0.001BTC. There's a 1 in 86,400 chance of doing this, so don't quit your day job with plans of doing this all the time. I've never hit it, but there's a record of those who have on the site.

Not only is the opportunity for big payout (in faucet terms) super fun, the site doesn't require a CAPCTHA check for each Check In as long as you haven't let too much time elapse. That makes it super fast to check in.

LuckyCheckIn

LuckyCheckIn Screenshots

BTCRock

BTCRock is another one of those fun sites that combines a faucet with a random element. Once you sign in with your Bitcoin address and password, plus CAPTCHA, you get a 20 by 20 grid and 6 pick axes. Click a square and if you reveal the gold coins, you get 3,000 satoshis. That's a 3 in 200 chance, and I've yet to do it.

But, you get 35 satoshis for each try, for a total of 175 satoshis per visit. Both the bonus and the per-click payouts are lower, and the operators say they are working on their business model.

There's also a paid gambling element to this faucet. I haven't tried it, haven't researched it, and am not recommending it. It's the free faucet that I am recommending.

New - Click2Dad

WARNING: Click2Dad has been slow to payout since I first added it. The operators say they are working on the issues. There's an active forum, though it's in Russian, where there are complaints and responses that they hope to recitfy the delays soon. Just be careful before committing too much time unless you're willing to accept some risk.

This is high paying faucet that pays you for loading up full webpages. It is aimed at a Russian audience—many of the pages are in Russian and some of those are propaganda pages promoting Russian nationalist agendas (I checked out a few via Google Translate).

What makes Click2Dad cool is that you only have to keep each page loaded a few seconds. Most are 10 seconds each, with the higher payments requiring 15 seconds or more. One ad paying 3,000 satoshis required a minute—it was for the Kremlin's home page. Seriously.

In any event, this site uses mBTC (sometimes called a milli-Bitcoin) as its unit of measurement, or 0.001BTC. For instance, the ad below paid 0.00500 mBTC. That's also 500 satoshis, making it the single highest-paying site for the length of time you must spend.

You can withdraw once you hit 1 mBTC, which is 100,000 satoshis. It only takes a few days to do so. The ads rengerate every 12 hours.

As shown in the screenshot below, once your timer elapses, you get a "CLOSE" button that takes you back to the list of available ads.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!)

Enjoy.

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.

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.

Hi Bryan

Here is another faucet that pays to your Bitcoin wallet
here is the link to it  
http://click2dad.net/

this site has a auto surf feature, just click it and click on any one ad it will keep on viewing the all the ads until it ends, you can even surf adds manually and can also generate free bitcoins by playing, the counter resets every 10 minutes and the minimum you get paid is 0.00003 mBTC

Check it out

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.

Please consider adding http://cheapbitcoin.us/ to the list.

Thanks.

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:
http://bitcoingrind.netne.net

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
