Get Free Bitcoins with 41 Website Faucets that Really Pay [Update]

BitChest Faucets

I've found a new communal payout service called BitChest. Like Microwallet.org above and Coinbox.met below, BitChest faucets all pay into a BitChest wallet that then pays out to you when you've accumulated 5,500 satoshis. BitChest has a good interface and lets you know exactly how close you are to getting a payout, as shown in the screenshot below.

As is the case with all of the faucets in this list, I can confirm that BitChest pays out as advertised. Below are the five highest-paying faucets that use this service, all of which have been tested.

I have another group wallet called Coinbox.me. Multiple 30 minute faucets pay into one wallet that then pays you once you reach 5,500 satoshis. These faucets don't pay out very much, but I'm keeping an eye out because the operator says higher paying faucets are coming.

These sites are quirky, and Can Has Bitcoin is intentionally a throw-back eyesore, but they make it easy to get some free Bitcoins.

BitcoinFaucet.tk

It's a 6-hour faucet, I've accumulated 0.00046BTC over several months.

It's pretty straight forward. Load the page, enter your Bitcoin wallet address, enter the CAPTCHA, and come back in six hours.

Conclusion

If you have fiat cash (i.e. dollars or euros) and you want to invest in Bitcoins, just buy them. None of these faucets pay out enough to warrant the time you spend. Hitting these faucets is not a job replacement.

But, it's fun and it's easy, and if it's sitting there in the background and you hit them when you're taking a break from work or futzing around on your iPad, it's essentially free bitcoins. Today's 0.01BTC is worth about US$6.17. But if Bitcoin hits $40,000 like the Winkelvoss Twins think it will, that same 0.01BTC would be worth $400, and I've personally earned .29BTC from these faucets over the last couple of months.

That would retroactively make the time you spend loading a page and entering some CAPTCHA information a different equation.

And in the meanwhile, you could even use these free Bitcoins to play some online poker.

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.

Rob Gloginja

Enjoy the fact that you posted your referral links - more money for yourself!!

Any chance you can tell us how much you made from referrals?

I can add you once I have tested it and received payment. Please contact me using our contact form if you have questions.

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.

bitcoinearn, the “generate” page is working as described (paying 1 satoshi every 30 seconds, not 8), but the main page returns a 20 minute warning after the first dispense. This has been the case for several hours of testing. Please email me directly when you have it fixed, and I’ll include your site in the next update.

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.

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

looper

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.

mkukuluk

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

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

Bryan Chaffin

Thanks, Chase. I updated the faucet list accordingly.

looper

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).

UncleTom

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
