Are They Star Quality?
When Bitstars.net, or recently re-branded in BitStarz.com, was first established, in 2013, they set out to be a pioneer in the Bitcoin gaming industry. They wanted to offer a site where players feel comfortable playing, along with the selection that many players, up to that point, were wanting out of a Bitcoin casino. Throughout the following months, and up until this very day, they provide players with exactly what the players wanted. A trustworthy casino, that provides players the opportunity at a fair gaming experience, with excellent customer support. They continually provide the most up-to-date releases of new games, and overall, is one of the leaders in providing a fun, fair, and legitimate opportunity to wager Bitcoin and not have to worry about anything but winning. By also being the only Bitcoin casino to offer deposits in Euros and Bitcoin, it is one of many reasons that Bitstarz.com has continued to stay successful, in a continually competitive gaming market.
“Bitstarz.com is a unique casino start up offering the best slots on the market available for play with real money and also bitcoins. With fast cash-outs and superior customer service, Bitstarz.com is set to attract larger player demographics than any other casino product. Built by a team of professionals with over 15 years of experience in the iGaming sector, Bitstarz has already placed itself as a leading brand in the Bitcoin casino scene.

We truly believe that by providing customer service, in addition to our games and selection, that we set ourselves apart from many of the other casinos that are more tailored to provide one or the other.”
The one thing a player should notice when they first enter Bitstarz.com, is the amount of games that Bitstarz provide, especially when it comes to the slots portion of the game offerings. With what seems to be an everlasting page full of different slots, Bitstarz.com is the leading Bitcoin casino in regards to having the most slots, and the most fair, as well. What also gives Bitstarz.com an even further higher level of vote of confidence, is the fact that they also feature a slot game titled “Platinum Lightning” which is rare because it uses a “provably fair” type of confirmation. Although their slots are provided through industry known software providers such as Microgaming, Betsoft, and Amatic, they are also willing to encompass what most casinos provide fairness by providing alternate versions of their slots using “Provably Fair”. Bitstarz.com is currently the only site on the market that provides complex slot games that do implement this very popular Bitcoin gaming method. As if all those features of slots weren’t already impressive, they provide some of the biggest jackpots encompassed in their slots, throughout the Bitcoin industry. They even provide a “Jackpot Games” tab as a selection, of slots, that only display the slot games that have these impressive jackpots. At the time of this review, their biggest jackpot had over 75BTC, as its biggest reward. As Bitstarz.com does unequivocally tend to hang their hat on mostly their slot games, players wanting to play other variety of games have those choices as well.
Bitstarz.com also includes the most popular table games if slots weren’t a particular player’s favorite type of game. There are both software and live versions of Roulette, blackjack, and Baccarat for players that are in favor of having both versions to select from. Some of the software games, such as blackjack, include the “provably fair” element, instead of using the RNG that other software’s do tend to use. At this moment, their portfolio of table games is not too complex, by any means, but they try to show their intent on being a casino that doesn’t only service avid slot players. The only negative to all their table type of games, is the fact that the max bets are not nearly as high as other casinos provide, with these particular table games. As an example, their live dealer only allows a max bet up to 100mBTC or Euros for blackjack, depending on which currency you’re currently selected playing with. For Roulette, their software provides a max bet of up to 360mBTC. Generally speaking, this is quite short of what other casinos can offer, as far as their highest limits are concerned. So for high rollers, the table games would fall well short of what they are used to being able to play with, in terms of bet size.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Bitstarz.com offers the ability to instantly deposit with Bitcoin, with no confirmation required for an account to be credited. As for withdrawals, they are also instant once the deposit has been confirmed. The only occurrence where a withdrawal would not be instant, is a withdrawal of 10BTC or more. Anything at that threshold and higher requires a manual review, that shouldn’t last more than an hour or two at most, depending on the time of day. In addition to Bitcoin, Bitstarz.com is also the first Bitcoin gaming site that allows deposits in real money currency. They offer deposit options in Euros through Skrill, bank transfer, and credit card. If a player, by chance, deposits both Bitcoin and Euros, they can choose which one they would like to wager with, at the top of the menu bar. Withdrawals of real money currency must be made via the way the funds were deposited. Also, balances can’t be exchanged between each other (converting Euros to BTC and vice-versa). By adding the option for a real money deposit, Bitstarz.com is universally attractive to players who might have little access to no access to Bitcoin.
Bitstarz.com does offer a deposit bonus, but is rather difficult to achieve. For the first deposit, they match 100% up to 120 Euros or .3 BTC. For the second deposit, they provide 25%, up to .4 BTC or 160 Euros. For the third deposit, they provide an additional 50%, up to 120 Euros or .3 BTC. While the terms of the bonus seem to be in line with what other gaming sites provide, it is rather difficult to achieve any sort of bonus winnings, off of the bonus. Players do have the option to withdraw the available balance, (non-bonus funds), at any time, but with the caveat of forfeiting their deposit bonus. Non-bonus funds are played with first, then if exasperated, the deposit bonus kicks in. The deposit bonus requires a 35x play through, with slots counting 100%, and all other games only counting 5%.
