The following is a secret shopper review by Dustin, a well spoken and well-written community member. Thank you Dustin for depositing at Bitstarz and reporting back so everyone can get an idea of what this bitcoin casino is all about! For anyone who is interested in bitcoin casinos, Bitstarz is worth checking out. If you have questions about bitcoin casinos, shoot me an email. I have learned a lot from conversations with Dustin and am now a bitcoin casino player myself. Dustin’s Bitstarz review follows. Check this picture of Dustin on the right. Made me LOL.
Do I need to say anymore? Ok fine. Generous welcome bonus.
Bitstarz is a multi-currency casino, allowing you to play in eight different forms of currency. Bitcoin players are able to register an account with just a username and a permanent email address. That’s it. Nothing more required to deposit, play, or withdraw either. The casino does reserve the right to verify any player though, so don’t be incapable of it or you may lose out on a jackpot that you’ve already won. You will play using mBTC, so as a Bitcoin player you are able to play at lower minimums than those playing in USD currently since the value of an mBTC is around 0.58 USD currently.
Thoughts on Games
The games are very fun, have great graphics, and many of them were previously not easy to find for the players in the USA. In my experience so far, the slots seem to spin with higher payout volatility than most RTG casinos, but when they pay, they definitely pay. The table games section offers a great selection. A few variations of blackjack and casino poker in addition to everything else you would expect in the table games section to see is right there for you. You can even play Zoom Roulette (more widely known as French Roulette) where half of the players outside bet is returned to them in the event of a zero. Video poker is lacking at Bitstarz, with only two games available. Players can double their win only twice per hand, even in the event of a draw with the dealer. Players located in the USA are banned from all live games at the casino.
Customer Service Experience
Customer service here is top notch. When I questioned why I couldn’t play live games, Chris, the livechat rep on duty, responded quickly and even offered to provide me with a listing of all countries and what corresponding games the residents are banned from. Livechat was also very thorough when following up with me on an unusually lengthy deposit time (which was still only about 15 minutes) and are always a pleasure to speak with. You can even tip them! Only downside I found here was that there are certain hours where they are not immediately available.
Withdrawals at Bitstaz are a breeze. The option to play in mBTC allows for nearly instant deposits and withdrawals, and in much smaller amounts than previously allowed by other casinos accepting VISA. I haven’t tested other forms of deposit (why would I) but can tell you that you must withdraw in the same manner as your deposit. My withdrawal request was approved within minutes, and from there it was in my wallet within another five or ten.
Bonus, Notes, Closing Thoughts…
“Provability” information is also available in every wager, on every game. If you are one of those people who actually knows enough about it to prove randomization, the information is there for you.
The bonus structure isn’t that original or amazing, but the welcome bonus certainly is when you use NoDepositBonus.com to open a new player account! There is also no tiered player loyalty club, but all members are awarded a percentage of their losses from the previous week every Friday.
I’d say that I’ll see you there, but I am USA player blocked from the live games. Anyhow, if you like online casinos enough to read this, you’ll love it here.
