Das Ist Casino is an online casino that proudly bears the “Made in Germany” tag. It is a licensed bitcoin gambling site that serves players beyond Germany and can be viewed in different languages.
Das Ist Casino was created as a joint project by developers of software used in online casinos and slot machine halls. This team of developers envisioned the creation of a new casino project with emphasis user-friendliness and security. On its homepage, the site claims to offer more than a thousand games, fast cash outs, and a 100% secure system. Das Ist Casino also provides 24/7 player support.
Getting a Das Ist Casino account is a quick and simple process. Just click on the Sign Up button near the upper right corner of the site to display the account registration form. You will only be asked for your email address, password, and preferred currency (dropdown list). Then, tick the checkbox indicating that you are at least 18 years old and that you accept the site’s Terms and Conditions so you can proceed to having your account created.
You need to verify your account first before you can log in. Wait for the email from Das Ist Casino regarding your account registration. It contains the button/link you need to click to have your account confirmed or verified. You will not be able to log in using the username and password you registered if you have not verified your account.
Das Ist Casino User Interface
Das Ist Casino is intuitive. It shouldn’t be difficult figuring out where to find what you want to find. There’s a blue Menu button on the topmost right corner of the site. Click on this to see links to the pages for the Promotions, Payments (Deposits), frequently asked questions,live chat, and account dashboard. The account dashboard link is your email address (in blue). You can eventually change this by adding your first name and last name under the profile page. For the sake of consistency, the phrase “profile page” in this review shall mean the Profile Info tab under the account dashboard.
The account dashboard has the following tabs: Balance, History, Bonuses, Affiliate, Profile Info, Gambling Limits, and Documents.
The Balance tab obviously provides a glimpse of the account’s funds or currency. It’s also through this tab where you can add more currencies for your account. The History tab shows histories of different transactions, bets, bonuses, and free spins. The Bonuses and Affiliate tabs are self explanatory. Profile Info or the profile page, on the other hand, is where you have to add your personal details, configure if you want to receive newsletters and promos, and set your timezone and currency. You can also change your password and email address in the Profile Info or profile page.
The Gambling Limits tab is a special tab wherein you can impose deposit, loss, and wager limits on your own account. It also allows you to set “cooling off” and self-exclusion periods to prevent yourself from falling into gambling addiction.
Moreover, there’s the Documents tab, which is similar to the Documents tabs in other leading online casinos. It is through this tab where you will be uploading documents pertaining to your identity. Das Ist may require you to upload certain documents as proof of your identity.
Interestingly, The site seems to not have an automatic session timeout. When we closed our browser and turned our computer off for a number of hours, we were surprised to find out that we were still logged in after reopening the site. Other bitcoin casinos would have already asked for a fresh login after the browser is closed.
Das Ist Casino Games
There were around 480 games at the time we did this Das Ist Casino review. The number is far from the 1000 games claimed on the About Us page of the site. Still, it’s a good number for an online bitcoin casino.
- There were more than 300 slots games from various game developers.
- The site had 8 live dealer games, which were live roulette and live blackjack games. All of which are from Ezugi.
- There were 11 casual games featured on the site including a virtual racebook, keno, dice, minesweeper, and scratchcard games.
- Other games worth mentioning are the site’s different variants of keno, poker, baccarat, and dice games.
Das Ist Casino proudly claims that all of its games are unique and of impressive quality. They are fully scalable to provide the perfect view on any screen size. There’s nothing objectionable or contentious in this claim. The site indeed has a nice collection of games.
We’re just not sure about the way they are presented. Browsing through the game collections can be quite a chore. Loading the game list can make the browser feel slow. The categorization also isn’t as neat as we’d like it to be. The site has a search feature but it didn’t seem to be functioning properly at the time we were doing this review.
All of the games have Play for Fun versions so Das Ist Casino can be considered a free bitcoin casino. You can enjoy the site’s game collection without having to spend real money or bitcoins.
Das Ist Casino Software and Fairness
The games on Das Ist Casino are from multiple game providers including Amatic, Booming Games, EGT, GameArt, MrSlotty, Pragmatic Play, SoftSwiss, iSoftBet, Endorphina, Betsoft Gaming, Ezugi, and Pocketdice. On its FAQ page, Das Ist Casino asserts that all of their games are fair since they are all licensed and certified. All of the games are said to have Random Number Generator randomness certificate although there is no link shown on the site pertaining to this certificate. However, not all of the games have the Provably Fair button. Only some of the games can be readily tested for their fairness.
Das Ist Casino Is Mobile-Friendly
Based on Google’s Mobile Website Speed Testing Tool, Das Ist Casino has a mobile-friendly website with a score of 100/100. The site sports a responsive web design. It automatically adjusts its layout and the amount of content shown depending on the display size of the device used to access it.
However, Das Ist Casino scores low when it comes to mobile and desktop page loading speed. It scores 49/100 (poor) and 54/100 (poor) respectively. We did not encounter very slow page loading speeds during the review but we noticed that the site can be quite taxing on computer resources. It may crash the browsers on computers with relatively old specs.
Currencies, Deposits, and Withdrawals
Das Ist Casino supports multiple currencies. These currencies are US dollar (USD), euro (EUR), Russian ruble (RUB), and of course bitcoins (BTC). You are not limited to using just one currency. You can use all four currencies with your account. Just be sure to add the currency in the Balance tab of the Profile page. You will have separate balances for your different currencies (if you use multiple currencies).
Making a deposit on Das Ist Casino is easy. There’s the big orange Deposit button near the upper right corner you can click to quickly open the Deposit page. If you are using multiple currencies with your account, you need to specify the currency you want to use under the Select Balance Currency section of the Deposit page. It’s unlikely that you will find the process confusing since different currencies have their separate deposit and cash out interfaces. The currency symbols are clearly indicated so you shouldn’t end up mistakenly depositing rubles to your dollar balance.
You can deposit bitcoins through wallet to wallet transaction or through Cubits. For the wallet-to-wallet transaction, there’s a deposit address indicated on the page to which you have to send your bitcoin deposits. For the Cubits option, just click on the Pay with Cubits button on the BTC deposit page or convert your euros into bitcoins by clicking on the “Bitcoin Powered by Cubits” option under the EUR currency deposit option.
For the other currencies, the available payment options are clearly laid out, along with their respective transaction completion times, and minimum and maximum deposit amount requirements.
Fiat currency deposits can be made through Sofort Banking, Qiwi, Yandex Money, Svyaznoy, Comepay, Mobile Commerce, Promsvyaz, Alfa, and CepBank.
If you want to withdraw funds from your account, just go to the Balance tab under your Profile page and find the blue Cashout button just beside the Deposit button. Cashouts or withdrawals can be made through credit cards (Visa, MasterCard or Maestro), CepBank, Skrill, Neteller, Bitcoin, Qiwi, Yandex Money, Comepay, and bank transfer. Withdrawals can be completed instantly except for the credit card, CepBank, and bank transfer options. All of which take around 1 to 3 banking days.
Bonuses, Promotions, Player Rewards, and Affiliate Program
Das Ist Casino offers a good number of bonuses, promotions, and rewards for players. They can be summarized as follows:
- 150% First Deposit Bonus + 50 Free Spins. This bonus is 150% of the first deposit made but not higher than 1 BTC or 350 EUR. Minimum deposit required is 20 USD/EUR, 1500 RUB, or 0.05 BTC. Wagering requirement is 50x the sum of the deposit made and bonus received.

The free spins are not available in all games. The games in which they are applicable are indicated in the Promotions page.

If you make a deposit through the standard way, you will have to enter a bonus code. We’re not sure what code to enter to avail of the different bonuses.
Take note that not all of the games can contribute to the completion of the wagering requirement. Baccarat, blackjack, hi-lo, video poker, roulette, and poker games only contribute 5% (excluding the live games) while slots (except for some titles specified in the Bonus Terms page) contribute 100%.
