BitStarz only has a Bitcoin casino. Many Bitcoin gambling websites usually offer more than just that, and that’s where you would think they beat BitStarz. But wait till this review is finished and you will know how BitStarz gives strong competition to the best in the online gambling scene without a sportsbook or a Bitcoin poker client.
BitStarz has two headlining concepts: the attractive slogan of “Dream Big – Win Bigger” and its claim of being the world’s first hybrid currency online casino. That second headline proves itself when you look at the huge selection of cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies you can use to deposit funds in your account: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Euro, Swedish Krona, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar, Norwegian Krones, US Dollar, Russian Ruble and Chinese Yuan. To deposit or withdraw your favourite cryptocurrency or fiat currency Bitstarz also offers a ton of methods. Besides the usual methods for cryptocurrencies the list of deposit and withdrawal options also contains: iDEAL, HiPay, VISA, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Sofort, WebMoney, Qiwi, Yandex Money, Alfa Click, Svyaznoy, Evroset and EcoPayZ. Speaking of withdrawals, the withdrawals at BitStarz are very fast. The limits are a bit high as compared to other popular bitcoin gambling sites, but that’s okay because you get a fast service that never fails.
With regards to support we’ve noticed that the 24/7 support is very helpful, but more often there is a lot of load on the staff. One staff member handles many, sometimes even 10 or a dozen chat boxes, so you might need to wait a few minutes as you will be queued up when all customer service people have their monitors full of chat boxes. However, it is worth the wait because the staff is very nice and has the knowledge required to answer your questions. BitStarz truly has one of the best customer services in terms of the quality of the service.
Once again, the lack of a bitcoin poker and sportsbook on a bitcoin gambling website only hurts. BitStarz has an amazing bitcoin casino with more than a thousand great games, but unfortunately that’s the only gambling service they provide. Hopefully things will change in the future, but only time will tell.
BitStarz Bitcoin casino
From slots to a live casino, you get a full blast of the true online bitcoin gambling experience on BitStarz. The online bitcoin gambling industry depends largely on the quality of graphics and the loading speed of the various assets. When you play a casino game on BitStarz, you will understand what the finest service is when it comes to online casinos. Fast loading pages and cool-looking graphics: the bitcoin casino of BitStarz is everything you want.

Bitstarz Bitcoin promotions
The welcome promotion at BitStarz is in sync with the bitcoin gambling industry standard. The welcome package gives you benefits on the first four deposits that you make in your cashier account.
Here are the benefits:
- 100% bonus (up to a maximum of 1 BTC) along with 180 free spins on the first deposit.
- 50% bonus (up to a maximum of 1 BTC) on the second deposit.
- 50% bonus (up to a maximum of 2 BTC) on the third deposit.
- 100% bonus (up to a maximum of 1 BTC) on the fourth deposit.
Note that you don’t get the 180 spins all at once. You’ll get 20 spins per day for 9 days.
So, in a nutshell, you are getting 5 BTC + 180 free spins on joining and if you prefer to receive your bonus in a different currency simply deposit with your currency of choice. Not a bad deal at all if you ask us, as a matter of fact the free spins part beats the competitors right out of the water. This reinforces our belief in the fact that any professional bitcoin gambling website is willing to invest in prizes and promotions more than other cheaper options.
Besides the welcome promotion BitStarz regularly offers a range of other promotions, at the time of writing this review a total of 6 other promotions are availabe, ranging from free spins and weekly cash prizes till double cash wins.
Security and fairness
Online bitcoin gambling is usually connected to spreading awareness about responsible gaming. To what comes as a shock, BitStarz has no content whatsoever encouraging or teaching responsible gambling. This hurts the fairness morale that we have come to expect out of online casinos. The bitcoin casino itself on BitStarz is completely fair, don’t worry about that. We tested a number of games ourselves and also verified the provably fair mechanism in place at BitStarz.
As for security, the website uses SSL encryption which is the industry standard. What that means is that all the data you send and receive to and from the server is protected from any intruder or third-party software. In other words, no one can gain access to any information through this website, including sensitive information like your credit card number for money withdrawal.
The website is also safe in general, as it is encrypted using TLS AES 120 technology based on SHA256. This TLS 1.3 tech supports 128-bit keys, which makes it extremely hard for common hackers to gain entry to any part of the website, including the parts where user information is stored.
