For the average global citizen, the jury is still out on the revolutionary new currency known as the bitcoin. While it may provide immense tax breaks for the wealthy or elite, provide a convenient means of currency exchange for an International traveller or a way for black marketeers to conduct their business well below the prying eyes of government radars, the average citizen seems to still feel much safer with tried and tested banks with physical locations, human accountability and cash on demand from ATM’s.
But now, after a mere half decade on the open market, it cannot be denied that there is a growing interest in the benefits of bitcoin. The latest addition to the bitcoin galaxy is BitStarz, an online casino that offers players the option of using either Euro or Bitcoin as their currency of choice. But BitStarz does not simply rely on the novelty ov offering bitcoin as currency to attract players. BitStarz also offers a vastly wider selection of games than many other online gambling sites.
While most sites feature around 300 different games, BitStarz offers over 550 games from leading entertainment companies such as MarketGaming, Amatic Industries, Quickfire, Betsoft and Ezugi and they have partnered with established gaming company FENgaming in order to offer NetEnt games as well. Games range from more traditional casino favorites such as blackjack, Baccarat, poker and other table games, to colorful slot games like Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Blood Suckers, The Slot Father, and Jack Hammer 2.
Just recently, in September 2015, BitStarz has proven that the house does not always win in the virtual world and that mega wins are actually possible. An online player known only as “Rebecca” recently made a €200 investment, only to walk away 48 hours later with a whopping €51,438.47 in winnings, making it the largest single payout in BitStarz history. While €16,500 of that was from one jackpot Mega Win on the featured slot game SuperNova, she also racked up major wins on other MicroGaming slots. SuperNova features 27 pay lines and offers offers a modern double reel, however, which multiplies a player’s earnings, which made it Rebecca’s favorite game.
Her other favorites included other MicroGaming slots like ‘Goldilocks and the Wild Bear,’ ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Playboy’ where she racked up wins ranging from €5,110 to €10,100. New players are given lavish welcome packages which are available to all new players who register an account. Players can also choose which currency they want their Welcome Package to be credited in, either a traditional €100 money bonus or 1BTC. But BitStarz doesn’t stop there. They not only offer new players a Welcome Gift on their first deposit, but also on their second and third deposits as well. Each of their first three deposits also gains them an additional offering of 25 free spins for each deposit. Bonuses are added to new player’s accounts automatically so they are immediately ready to rock & roll.
Based in Malta, BitStarz operates under a gaming license issued in Antillephone N.V., Curacao and was the first online casino to offer players the option of either using traditional currency or bitcoin. While other online casinos have sprung up in its wake, BitStarz continues to lead the way in the online entertainment industry. They are known for taking a progressive stance when it comes to both technology and entertainment as a whole and are constantly seeking out new games to add to their already impressive portfolio of more than 550 games.
Perhaps the most enjoyable part of online gaming is its accessibility. Available on both desktop computers and mobile devices such as smart phones, laptops and tablets, a quick spin of the wheel is just a device tap or keystroke away. Enjoy a few minutes of down time between meetings or a quick session at the virtual table before bedtime while relaxing in your most comfortable attire. BitStarz is available 24 hours a day no matter what part of the world – or what time zone – you may find yourself in. Play a few slots in the morning in Tokyo, and finish off your day winning a jackpot in Beijing.
BitStarz has also made banking a breeze, as they accept multiple International currencies besides bitcoin, including SEK, NOK, AUD, CAD, USD, EUR, and also GBP. To open an account with currency, they accept wire transfers, major credit cards like Visa and MasterCard and even e-wallets such as Skrill and Neteller. While online, bitcoin Cubits can be converted to EUR for certain games and then right back to bitcoin without any fees whatsoever.
But if funding an account is a snap, withdrawing your winnings is even easier. Working in bitcoin allows BitStarz to boast the fastest payout times in the industry with immediate payouts in bitcoin. Traditional currency payouts, however, are on par with the industry standard which is anywhere from 1-3 days. BitStarz’ cutting edge online security systems allow them to check and verify payouts in a fraction of the time it takes other online gaming sites and with far less risk to the player. While a small portion of a payout may be held back for security reasons, BitStarz’ round-the-clock support team works hard to ensure that all payouts are made quickly and efficiently, even when there is a snag. They do, however, have a cashout limit of €15,000 or 60BTC per month, so it may take some time for Rebecca to receive her full €51,000 in winnings.
BitStarz is powered by SoftSwiss software, which allows players to immediately play in Instant Play with no software download required, unlike many other gaming sites that require sometimes lengthy and time consuming downloads before play can begin. Every product is RNG certified and SSL secured, which allows players to rest easy that their confidential information will remain safe and secure.
