If there’s a contest for the best-looking bitcoin casino websites, Casino Extreme is most likely going to be one of the top contenders. This online casino that started in 2000 sports an attractive modern look that can be easily distinguished from other online casino websites. We’re no that sold on using pretty girls’ faces all over the the site but we have to admit the site looks great with them. The site’s navigability is also commendable. It is even mobile-friendly.
We were a little worried when we learned that there’s a software download involved to play at Casino Extreme but were were greatly relieved upon learning later on that there’s also an Instant Casino option so there’s no need to download anything. The focus of this Casino Extreme review will be the web-based playing. After all, we would have considered it a big disadvantage if playing on Casino Extreme were limited to the Casino Extreme desktop client.
Casino Extreme is not primarily aimed at those who want to play using bitcoins. However, the site does accept bitcoins and for those who are new to this cryptocurrency, Casino Extreme offers guides to make the process of using bitcoins for online gambling easier.

Slightly Complicated Account Registration Process
Signing up for an account with Casino Extreme may not be as simple as how it can be done with other online casinos. If you visit the homepage, there is no button or link that says “Sign Up” or “Register.” This slight complication is due to the fact that Casino Extreme can be played using a desktop client or through a web browser.
There are actually just two options for signing up. There are three mentioned on the Casino Extreme website but the mobile and Instant Casino registration are actually the same. We have to emphasize, though, that once you create an account with any of these options, the account already works across all platforms. Also, you are allowed to sign up for only one account. Signing up for multiple accounts is a violation of the Casino Extreme Terms and Conditions.
For Instant Casino, you have to go to the Instant Play page and find the buttons the say “Play USD Flash” or “Play Euro Flash.” Once you click on either button (of course you need to choose the one suitable for you), a pop-up will appear. You will be filling out two online forms. The first is for basic information and the second is for personal details. The process is quite long because the information sought from you are more than the usual details required by other online casinos. It took us perhaps around a minute to sign up for an account.
The online forms are somewhat “smart.” It can detect inconsistencies or issues in the information you enter into them. For example, you may have missed one digit in the telephone number you entered. The form will know this problem and indicate that you need to add more. Additionally, we were told that the system actually detects your IP address. As such, if you are using a computer with an IP address identified with a country that is on the list of those restricted from playing, your account registration will automatically be disallowed.
On the other hand, registering for an account through the desktop client is actually similar to how it is done with Instant Casino or the web-based registration. You will be filling out the same forms and your registration will similarly be disallowed if you are not qualified to play on Casino Extreme.
The Games on Casino Extreme
Casino Extreme may not have an extremely extensive collection of games but the games are definitely more than decent. There are 171 games available. These are grouped into the following categories: Video Poker Games, Slot Games, Table Games, and Other Games.
- There are 121 games listed under the Slot Games category. These include 6-reel, 5-reel, 3-reel, and bonus and progressive slots.
- For the Video Poker category, there are 12 games to play. Some of the notable titles are Aces and Eights, Bonus Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker, Double Jackpot Poker, Jacks or Better, Sevens Wild, and Joker Poker.
- There are 22 games under the Table Games category. These include Baccarat, Blackjack, Caribbean Draw, Caribbean Stud, Face Up 21, Let Em Ride, Match Play 21, Pai Gow Poker, Pontoon, Red Dog, Super 21, Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker, Tri-Card Poker, and Vegas Three Card Rummy.
- The Other Games category are progressive games and specialty games such as Keno, Scratch Card, and Bingo.
Game loading time is around slow to average based on our experience as we were doing this Casino Extreme review. We tried loading the games of other leading online casinos and we did not encounter loading problems so we are inclined to assume that loading issue is specific to Casino Extreme.
Play for Fun Feature
Casino Extreme’s games come with Play for Fun version so those who don’t have real money to wager yet can try the games out before engaging in more serious game playing. Actually, anyone can try the games on Casino Extreme first without having to sign up for an account. If you have not logged in to Casino Extreme, all the games are automatically in their Play for Fun mode.
Game Software, Provability, and Game Interface
There are no details regarding the gaming software used by Casino Extreme. We asked about it through the live chat support but we were not given a response so apparently it’s not something they would readily divulge. However, there are multiple sources online that say that Casino Extreme’s software is by Realtime Gaming. Regarding fairness provability, there is nothing mentioned on the Casino Extreme website so we are inclined to believe that the games are not provably fair.
Casino Extreme Is Mobile-Friendly
Casino Extreme has a mobile-friendly website. If you are loading the website on a mobile device, it automatically loads a mobile version that is optimized for a swiping and tapping navigation. There is actually no mobile app available. The Mobile Casino mentioned on the Casino Extreme website is actually the web-based version of the games. It can be accessed through mobile web browsers that support Flash.
The games can be accessed through the Mobile Casino page, which presents two options: Play USD Mobile or Play Euro Mobile. Once you click on either option, a pop-up window appears, showing the web-based version of the client-based game interface. We were intrigued by the URL of this window because it appears that the game interface being shown is something that is being directly accessed in a server that simulates a mobile gaming interface.
If you are accessing the Instant Casino version through your desktop or laptop (for the Instant Casino option), you might find it a little awkward that you are playing on a desktop computer but the interface looks like that of a mobile device.
Currencies Used and Payment Methods
Certainly, this Casino Extreme review will not complete without the discussion on the currency used and payment methods supported.
Casino Extreme uses US dollars (USD), euro (EUR), and bitcoins (BTC). All transactions or amounts mentioned on the games are expressed in USD or EUR, depending on the currency you chose. Bitcoins are automatically converted to the EUR or USD equivalent. There are multiple payment methods supported on Casino Extreme.
For deposits the options are bitcoin (wallet to wallet transaction), Neteller, Skrill, EcoPayz, credit and debit cards, Neteller, Pasteandpay (EZVoucher), and bank wire transfer. Except for the bank wire transfers, all of these deposit payment methods require a minimum deposit of 20 USD/EUR. There is no maximum amount mentioned. Bank transfer deposits require a minimum deposit amount of 500 USD/EUR.
When it comes to withdrawals, Casino Extreme brags of offering instant withdrawals. However, this instant withdrawal guarantee only works with bitcoin, Neteller, Skrill, and EcoPayz withdrawals. The minimum amount required for bitcoin, Neteller, Skrill, and EcoPayz withdrawals is 20 USD/EUR (or the equivalent for bitcoins). For Pay2Card, the minimum is 200 USD/EUR with transactions usually taking 2-4 business days to clear. On the other hand, for bank wire transfers, the minimum is at 500 USD/EUR with a 50 USD fee and transaction processing time of up to 5 business days. The maximum amount for withdrawals is set at 4,000 USD/EUR per week.
Casino Extreme Promotions
There are two major promotions being offered by Casino Extreme. These are the 100% Signup Deposit Bonus and the 20% Cash Back.
The 100% Signup Bonus offers up to 200 USD/EUR in credits. It requires the following bonus match code: CPBHB. To avail of this bonus, a minimum deposit of 20 USD/EUR is needed. The wagering requirement is 25x without any faxback form required unless the deposit is made through a credit card. Not all games can contribute to the completion of the wagering requirement. The games excluded are as follows: Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette, and Sic Bo.
The 20% Cashback promotion is something we really like in Casino Extreme. This credits back 20% of the deposit made in case all of the deposit balance is completely depleted while playing on Casino Extreme. The amount is credited the next day. This bonus does not have a wagering requirement!

Country Restrictions for Players
Everyone is welcome to play the games on Casino Extreme. However, when playing using real money wagers, players from certain countries are not allowed. The Casino Extreme website says that “citizens from the the following countries are prohibited from playing for real wagers….” We clarified this with customer support and we found out that it’s not necessarily the “citizens” who are not allowed. It’s mostly a matter of IP address. If ypu register for an account with an IP address identified with the countries listed below, you will not be allowed to proceed or your account will eventually be nullified.
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Costa Rica
Also, despite being created to serve players from different parts of the world, The Casino Extreme website and game client are only available in the English language.
