Bitcasino.io review 2018
Bitcasino.io is the first licensed bitcoin-led online casino site that offers a fun, fast and fair gaming experience. It is a fully functional site explicitly designed for players using cryptocurrency. Bitcoin has seen some sharp fluctuations recently, as well as the emergence of several significant competing currencies, but as the pioneer of the cryptocurrency it still remains the most popular and trusted.
Players new to the site will need to have a bitcoin wallet set up and credited in order to play; Blockchain, Armory and Copay come highly recommended. Having purchased bitcoins and credited their Bitcasino account, users are all set to play the games. An in-depth guide to buying, managing and using bitcoin can be found on their website. The main currency Bitcasino accepts is bitcoin, although they do accept other 33 altcoins too. The process of crediting with altcoins has more steps, but is easy to follow – any transactions required to buy the currency itself will need to be made outside of their site, partner links are provided.
Bitcasino.io runs exclusively in Flash (Instant) Play mode, but the software has come a long way since the site entered the marketplace, having seen many changes, upgrades and a recent well-received rebrand. Players currently visiting the site are enjoying a wider range of software, and a fresh new environment with an exciting, vibrant quality about it.
The fairly well established gaming site, started in 2014, is owned and operated by mBet Solutions NV. Operations are licensed and regulated by the government of Curacao, and the site has been awarded certificates of trust from some of the most prominent gambling review sites.
Bitcasino.io is powered by software shared by many online casinos, coming from some of the industry’s leading providers such as OneTouch, Evolution, Quickfire, Asia Gaming, NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, GameArt, Ezugi, Betsoft, Quickspin, Booming Games, Play’n GO, BetGames and Endorphina.
A fantastic assortment of over 1,300 games for players to choose from. Online slots prove very popular with players, games like Fruit Zen, Dragon King, Immortal Romance, Booming Bananas and 888 Gold, as well as their top-rated general titles, Panda’s Fortune, Deco Diamonds and Paris Nights.
They also offer an excellent array of table games. The roulette offerings include popular favourites like European Roulette, American Roulette and Common Draw Roulette. Blackjack games include Mini Blackjack, Classic Blackjack and Pontoon. There are several more blackjack games as well as other table games, which include but aren’t limited to Baccarat, Craps, Top Trumps and Red Dog.
Here Bitcasino offers something quite special, and to our knowledge as yet exclusive. New live games like Dice and Live Lotto feature attractive live dealers in vibrant, authentic surroundings. There are also live games that players will be more familiar with such as the Live Casino tables. They also now offer a dedicated table on Evolution’s Live Blackjack.
Bitcasino has a fully responsive site for players to bet wherever, whenever and however they please, available for iOS and Android users. It will also work with Windows Phone and Blackberry OS. The mobile version has an extensive range of games to choose from.
It’s very easy to make contact with the customer support channel. Players need to be logged on and can select a Live Chat option for a 24/7 direct line of communication to customer support. For instances where their live chat is unavailable, players can get assistance by using the email and support ticket system.
Fairness and Security
This casino has great confidence in their fairness and security processes, and they’ve added a reference to it in their latest company slogan, ‘Fun, fast and fair!’ The site uses electronic procedures (including state-of-the-art advanced security measures and SSL encryption), but behind the scenes the management oversees a hands-on system, with teams of physical staff monitoring and maintaining the overall security of the product.
However, players are advised to take the usual precautions associated with sharing personal data over the internet. Impartial third-party accreditation includes fairness compliance testing and approval by TST (Technical Systems Testing) and membership of the prestigious circle of Certified Casinos, notoriously reserved for the highest quality, most trustworthy casinos.
What we love…
The withdrawal pending period is 2 hours, with a commitment to cashout in under two minutes. Instant play and mobile gaming is available, all covered by SSL encryption. They have a TST fairness approval and Certified Casinos membership. Live support can be accessed by chat or email ticket. However, there is no phone support option or poker games available just yet.
