1xBit Casino Review
By Candice Banks
Good Bitcoin casinos aren’t that hard to come by if you have an idea of where to look, and in this review, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at 1xbit. 1xbit is an online casino specializing in operating with Bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency. This online platform operates with a Curacao gambling license and has done so since its establishment in 2007. Along with this, it also has a range of bonuses that come in the form of deposit matches, and all of them add up to the value of 7 BTC.
The first bonus is a 100% deposit match up to the value of 1 BTC, the second bonus is a 50% deposit match up to the value of 1 BTC, the third bonus is a 100% deposit match up to the value of 2 BTC, and the fourth bonus is a 50% deposit match up to the value of 3 BTC. This is a common bonus format that has proven to work; however, there are some concerns when we looked at the wagering requirements which are 40x the amount deposited with the first payment, and you have 30 days to meet it. Next, we’ll be taking a look at the design and layout of this casino.
Design and Layout
The overall design of 1xbit is pleasant, it features a stealthy black and grey colour scheme with hints of orange; however, navigating this site is an entirely different story. The casino lobby is littered with tabs and drop-down menus which make it difficult to get from one end of the casino to the next. The top of the screen has your standard “log in” and “registration” tabs; however, instead of following the same layout, the opposite side has this weird slide-out tabs with the language selection, payment, statistics, results, time, and settings.
Accessing sports, live casino, esports, bonuses, and other features of the casino is quite easy, but it’s a nightmare to navigate, especially if you’re a new player. The left of the screen has a neat search function with a great filter, but the filter has to be cleared after using it which makes things a bit tricky from time to time. The games are neatly arranged and can be found under its respective category, but they’re usually set as all, which makes it hard to scroll to the bottom of the page.
With time, the platform does become manageable and once you get used to the labyrinth that is navigating this site then you won’t notice it.
1xbit Casino Games
Casino games are a vital aspect of online gaming, and 1xbit has a really good selection of games. The games are found under its respective category, namely Blackjack, Jackpot, New, Popular, Baccarat, Poker, Roulette, and Other. If you’re wondering what "Other" is, it’s essentially a variety if Sic Bo titles, with additional titles such as First Person Mega Ball, Deal or No Deal, Monopoly Live, and a handful of others. Games can be filtered according to the game type or provider.
Speaking of providers, table games have been developed by some of the best in the industry such as Authentic Gaming, XPG, MediaLive Casino, Evolution Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Vivo Gaming, Lucky Streak, Absolute Live Gaming, Fazi, N2Live, SA Gaming, and Live Games. When it comes to slots, there are over 90 developers involved, which is way too many to mention. If you’re a fan of live casino titles, there are plenty, and with sports betting there are often live streams available for you to keep track of your bet.
Oddly, there’s also a dedicated Blackjack/21 page that allows you to select a table of your choosing and play. It’s a neat setup and it comes with a rulebook that explains how to play.
1xbit Casino Banking
Due to this being a bitcoin casino, you won’t find any of your “traditional” payment methods. What we like about this system is that you’ll be able to select your region before choosing a payment method and this ensures that you’re always able to be successful with your choice. There is a minimum withdrawal limit of $30, which is quite high but if you think about it, this will save you some money over time as you’ll likely be charged with every small withdrawal made. The minimum deposit is 1 mBTC, and if rounded off, it’s essentially $11. Overall, it’s a reliable system that’s in place, and easy to use if you’re familiar with bitcoin casinos.
Deposits and Withdrawals
1xbit supports up to 68 cryptocurrency exchangers such as Local Bitcoins, Crex24, NovaDAX, Chatex, Wall of Coins, Bitpanda, CoinCorner, and many more; however, check the site before committing to a method as there are usually 5 to 7 methods available per region. There is also a wide range of cryptocurrencies supported, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, BitcoinCash, Ethereum Classic, Ripple, Tether, Monero, Bytecoin, Stratis, and more.
Right off the bat, there’s an issue locating any information regarding customer support. There is a live chat function, which is found at the bottom right of the screen, and when clicked on, it slides up and has a consultant name, rate, and an area to type the message. We’ve tried to send a message inquiring about the customer support service, unfortunately, we’ve received no response. This is a bit of a red flag as there have been customer reviews stating that the service isn’t very good, and we were hoping that it was false as we’d like to give the casino the benefit of the doubt.
Aside from the obvious lack of organizational skills possessed by the developers and the absence of critical information with seemingly empty terms and conditions with a lack of an FAQ section, this casino has the potential to be very good. However, there are others out there that are easier to navigate, and more trustworthy. Overall, be sure to take a look for yourself before making any commitments to this casino, as there’s no guarantee that it's completely legit.
