BitGame is a bitcoin and altcoin casino that also has a sportsbook section. It’s a gambling site with less-than-stellar looks. However, if you are looking for a casino where you can spend your bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies, BitGame is a great option. It accepts not only bitcoins but also bitcoin cash, litecoin, dogecoin, ethereum, and other altcoins.
This gambling site only offers a little over a dozen games and sports betting for a few sports events. This limited range of gambling options, nevertheless, is compensated by offering provably fair games (except for sports betting of course) and a dice game with a 1% house edge. The casino also offers deposit match bonuses for the first four deposits. Additionally, to entice players to sign up, the casino has VIP and affiliate programs.
BitGame may not be the best looking online casino around, but it has its own charms. It’s an excellent choice for those who want to use their bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies for online gambling. It does not require players to reveal and verify their identities. It has a straightforward gaming scheme. Even better, signing up for an account takes less than 5 seconds.
BitGame Account Registration
Opening a BitGame account is as easy as entering a nickname. Once you click on the Sign Up button, you will be directed to a screen that asks for the nickname you want for your account. All you have to do is to input the nickname you want and click on the CAPTCHA button (or the button that filters bots). After doing these steps, your account is instantly created. You will be automatically logged in to your account. You can do everything in less than 5 seconds.
However, it’s important that you set your password and recovery email once you are logged in. This is necessary so you can return to your account. Otherwise, you will be logged out (as you close your browser/clean your browser cache), and never be able to access the account again. If you made deposits or accumulated real money winnings therein, your balance will likely be forfeited.
Fortunately, the BitGame interface provides a conspicuous reminder for your to set your password and recover email as you enter your account.
There are very minimal changes in the way the BitGame website looks as you log in. You will just see your account balance on the upper right corner alongside the Account button that shows/hides th menu the presents the following options: Profile, Transactions, Settings, and Log Out. By the way, you may notice that you get a 1000 PLAY balance the moment you sign in to your newly created account. This is just Play Money you can use to try the games. It will not let you win real money prizes. It will be supplanted by a new balance once you make a deposit in bitcoins or the other cryptocurrencies accepted on the site.
As mentioned, you need to add your password and recovery email to your account as you log in. To do this, click on the Settings option under the Account menu. Under the Settings page, you will find the Change Email section where you can enter your email address. After you enter your email address, you need to do an email confirmation step by clicking on the confirmation link sent by BitGame to the email address you entered.
The option for adding/changing your password is also under the Settings page.
The Profile page on BitGame does not contain personal details. You will not be asked to submit information for your account or go through an identity verification process. The Profile page only presents information on your achievements, bonuses, free spins, affiliate points, and player statistics. It also shows updates on your accumulated loyalty points (LPs).
BitGame does not offer an extensive collection of games. There were only 14 of them at the time we did this review. However, the relatively few games on the site should be good enough for most players. Here’s a summary of the online casino games available on the casino:
- Narcos (slots)
- 300 Spartans (slots)
- Book Of Egypt (slots)
- Pirate Slot (slots)
- Fruits Slot (slots)
- High Low (card game)
- Lucky 7 (slots)
- Dice (casual table game)
- Blackjack (card game)
- Videopoker (card game)
- Red Dog Poker (card game)
- Casino War (card game)
- Heads Or Tails (table game)
- Let It Ride (card game)
The games look dated, although they’re not that different from what you will find in some other online casinos. The game interface is comparable to the interface used in online gambling sites with just one or two games. There’s nothing to complain about their performance, though. There’s no long game loading time. As soon as the game page loads (which is usually less than two seconds), the game is loaded. There’s no flash splash screen that appears before the game is loaded. It’s straightforward and simple.
The slots games have some limited animation while the card, table, and casual games don’t come with any graphical movement. All these may look boring to some players, but if it’s any consolation, the games load without delays and there are no issues with freezing the need to install other software/browser plugin such as the Adobe Flash Player.
You can try the games without making a real money deposit yet. As stated earlier, BitGame provides Play Money. The initial amount supplied is 1,000, and this can be reloaded once completely used up. Reloading is done by clicking on the “Reload Play Money” button right beside the account balance.
BitGame does not have live dealer games. However, it has a sports betting section. It’s not a big sportsbook similar to what other gambling sites have. It only features five sports, namely soccer, tennis, basketball, American football, and ice hockey.
BitGame Game Software and Fairness
BitGame appears to be using its own proprietary software for its games. It does not source its games from top software providers such as SoftSwiss, BetSoft, or Real Time Gaming. This proprietary software, however, provides the advantage of offering provably fair games.
The games have a Provably Fair button on top, beside the Rules button. Clicking on this opens a modal window for verifying the fairness of the game results. In this modal window, you can enter the client seed for the game, the hash, secret, and roll number. The client seed and hash for the game you want to test are displayed in the Provably Fair modal window you open right before you play a game. It’s at the bottom part of the modal window, the fields under the “Next Shuffle” section.
The casino’s house edge for its dice game is 1%.
Is BitGame Mobile-Friendly?
Because it was created with responsive web design, BitGame is a mobile-friendly online casino. It automatically changes its layout when loaded on a mobile browser to become suitable for smaller screens. It does not have a mobile app for Android or iOS, but the browser-based gaming it provides is enough for mobile gaming. We did not encounter issues while accessing the site and playing the games through a mobile browser.
The casino recommends using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox for playing.
Currencies Used and Methods for Deposits and Withdrawals
BitGame only accepts cryptocurrencies. These include bitcoin (BTC), litecoin (LTC), ethereum (ETH), ethereum classic (ETC), monero (XMR), dash (DASH), blackcoin (BLK), dogecoin (DOGE), stratis (STRAT), bitcoin cash (BTC), and peercoin (PPC).
The casino lists Play Money as one the currencies it accepts. This is not an actual currency, but free currency given to players so they can try the games on BitGame without having to make a real money deposit. It’s equivalent to the Play for Fun or Demo mode for the games in other online casinos.
Deposits are made on a wallet-to-wallet basis. To make a deposit, you have to click on the Play for Money button first to leave the Play Money mode. It’s only after you click the Play for Money button that the Deposit button appears. To make a deposit, you just have to transfer funds to the wallet address indicated in the Deposit interface.
Deposits are usually processed within five to ten minutes, but there are instances when it can take up to 24 hours or more. This is mostly due to security checks. The casino does not impose minimum and maximum limits on deposits.
If you want to make deposits in other cryptocurrencies, click on your account balance to display the list of other currencies you can use. Click on the currency you want. You can make deposits in
For withdrawals, just click on the Withdraw button right beside the Deposit button. Then enter your withdrawal amount and your bitcoin wallet address. The minimum withdrawal amount allowed is 0.004826 BTC. There’s a transaction fee of 0.00012065 BTC per withdrawal.
