CryptoGames Review – An Online Crypto Casino
CryptoGames is an online casino where users can place wagers using different crypto currencies which includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and other altcoins. The casino is owned and operated by MuchGaming B.V., a Curacao based company. CryptoGames is a licensed casino and is under complete regulation of the Curacao government.
CryptoGames currently holds an excellent reputation on the online gambling industry and has been earning a name for itself among the gambling communities. Online gamblers that come across this casino are never disappointed as CryptoGames has always aimed to exceed user expectation by providing top class services at all cost.
CryptoGames Platform Overview:
CryptoGames currently allows users to place bets using 10 different coins. Though they allow placing bets with 10 different coins, users can still deposit a lot of different altcoins, thanks to the integration of CoinSwitch, a third-party well-known service. They currently offer 8 different games, which are quite easy to play and master, all because of the detailed tutorials they come with. The casino itself has a quite simple look making it easy to navigate unlike other online casinos that are covered with unnecessary designs which also distract users while playing. Users can also socialize while gambling through the chat box which is quite active. This casino has taken various incentives to keep everyone satisfied at all time.
The interface and design:
CryptoGames is well known for its simple but unique interface and design. Users can navigate around the casino without any problems. The interface of every game is light enough to be played smoothly from any device without heavy requirements. Switching between games can be done through few clicks. Users can also see their betting history which is situated on the screen just beside the game the user is playing. The interface has a full and complete look with all necessary information right in front of the user. Users can switch the theme through the settings situated at the top right, under “Your Account” option. Another cool feature the casino has is the “Dark Mode”. Users can instantly switch to the dark mode by clicking the “moon shaped” button. At the bottom, all information like FAQ, Chat Rules and Support Link can be found. Users can also see the casinos twitter feed which always helps users to keep themselves up to date about the casino.
The Registration Process and Account Security:
One of the key features about CryptoGames is that you do not have to go through the tedious process of creating an account. When you first enter the casino, you do not have to do anything. The casino automatically will assign you a username (or you can select one) and you will just have to accept their terms of service to start playing! You can use their “Play Money” to test out the casino. If you like what you are seeing, you can get full access to the casino and secure your account by just adding an email address and a very strong password. You can further add more layers of security by enabling Two Factor Authentication. In terms of security, CryptoGames seems to be quite strict. If you have Two Factor Authentication enabled, you will need to use it whenever you try to withdraw anything. Even if an account doesn’t have Two Factor Authentication enabled, they are forced to do an email confirmation whenever a user tries to withdraw. This kind of practice shows how serious CryptoGames is when it comes to account security.
Supported Crypto Currencies:
CryptoGames currently supports 10 different crypto currencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Doge Coin, Ethereum Classic, Stratis, Monero, GAS and Dash. Users can place bets using any one of the mentioned coins. The online crypto casino also has a test currency of their own called “Play Money”. Users can test drive the casino using the Play Money and various strategies without spending or risking anything from their own balance. This is a kind of feature we hope all the online casino starts to implement.
Deposits and Withdrawals:
CryptoGames allows you to deposit and withdraw any of those 10 different currencies supported by the casino. Users can generate a deposit address by clicking on “Deposit” situated on the top right of their screen, under “Your Account”. A new interface opens up with multiple tabs with all required information like wallet address and deposit history. The deposits are instant. As soon as a user sends a coin, it shows up in the account as pending. For bitcoin, it takes only 1 confirmation to be able to spend the balance. Withdrawing coins is also a very easy task. By navigating to the “Withdraw” option under “Your Account”, users will be able to set a withdrawal address. Users are also given the option to set the fee by moving a slider which indicates how much the user is willing to spend in network fee. The history tab allows users to see their current status of their action along with all past withdrawals. The withdrawal is usually instant but sometimes due to security reason, user will have to go through support confirmation which usually takes no less than an hour. This only happens during rare cases like if a user was abusing any of their feature. One of the eye catching feature was the “Emergency Withdrawal Address”. Users are allowed to set an emergency withdrawal address from the settings. The address will be used in case anything goes wrong or the user cannot be contacted.
CryptoGames has integrated coinswitch to their casino. This means, users can deposit and withdraw a lot of different kinds of altcoins even if the casino does not support the coin. Users can deposit any (around 300+) altcoins through the coinswitch interface which will automatically convert the coin to one of the coins supported by CryptoGames. Once, the user is done playing, he can withdraw the coins through coinswitch which will again automatically convert it to the coin the user wishes to take.
CryptoGames has 8 unique games which consists of Dice, Slot, Blackjack, Roulette, Video Poker, Plinko, Minesweeper and Lotto to offer their users. All of the games come with a detailed tutorial along with a well built interface. We were able to play all the games without facing any issue. A brief review of all the games is given below:
The dice game is one of the most popular game in CryptoGames. People usually play the dice game as it is quite easy to play and master. In this game numbers are rolled ranging from 0.000 to 99.999, and the task of the user is to predict if the rolled number is going to be higher or lower than the predetermined number. Users can use keyboard shortcuts to roll the dice. The dice also has an advanced “Auto Bet” feature which allows users to tweak the settings according to their own strategy and watch the bets being made automatically. In Dice, the more risk you take (setting lower win chance), the more profit you will be able to make. Currently a user can make a maximum profit of 6 BTC in one single bet by playing bitcoin dice.
The captivating game of slot is played on five reels which spin back and forth before coming to a stop. A pay out can be claimed if five of the chosen symbols from the pay table line up in the middle of the slot. CryptoGames offers users only single line horizontal matching, which makes the game quite easier to play and giving users a better payout when the symbols match. In bitcoin slot, a jackpot of up to 5 BTC can be won in one single bet.
Blackjack at CryptoGames was amazingly easy for us to understand and play. The table interface had a clean look with no distraction or unwanted designs. The users have the option to Surrender, Double Down and Split. CryptoGames follow the common rule of blackjack. A total of 4 decks are used and shuffled after each hand. If the user hits the Blackjack, it pays at 6:5. Blackjacks are also paid for split hands.
CryptoGames roulette has a simple table with a spinning wheel. The tables have the numbers, colors, and all other options a traditional European Roulette would have. Before a ball is thrown into the wheel, users will have to place bets by stacking chips on the betting tab. Once the bets are placed, users can spin the wheel by pressing the “spin” button and user gets paid according to payout table.
Video Poker is a popular game across most online casinos which frequently manages to deliver proper entertainment. CryptoGames offers three variants of this entertaining game called Tens or Better, Jacks or Better, and Bonus Poker, all of which can be toggled from the top left corner of the interface. Users are rewarded according to the payout table. If a user manages to pull a Royal Flush, the user will receive a payout multiplier of 500 which will allow a user to win up to 6 BTC (depending on user bet size) through one single bet!
Not many casinos we have seen hosts a Plinko game. We were a little surprised to see CryptoGames offering plinko. CryptoGames version of Plinko is remarkably simple. Users can set a bet amount and choose the color of the ball they wish to drop. As soon as they press “Play”, the ball starts dropping through a pegged pyramid and reaches the bottom. The bottom box of the pyramid shows the payout the user will receive.
Minesweeper is another fun game that CryptoGames offer. The game has a quite simple rule. You will have to click on boxes that do not have mines in it. The more boxes you uncover, the higher you will be rewarded. The difficulty of the game can also be increased by add more mines into the field. Higher difficulty yields higher profit. A maximum of 24 mines can be placed, leaving only 1 box to uncover.
CryptoGames offer lotto which is also known as lottery. Users can buy lottery tickets from the “Buy Tickets” tab. The tab also shows the total number of tickets owned by the user along with the win chance. The main interface shows the time remaining for a round to end, the rewards for different position and the total number of tickets bought so far. The best part of CryptoGames lotto is that 100% of the revenue generated goes to the winners. This means the casino keeps zero profit from the lotto. The bitcoin lotto draw takes place twice a week, on Saturday and Wednesday.
Dice and Roulette have huge jackpots that can be claimed by any users! The user will have to meet some requirements in order to claim the jackpot. If the requirements are met, users will receive from 1% to 100% of the jackpot depending on the wagered amount. Jackpots can be claimed only through Roulette and Dice. The current bitcoin jackpot is standing at 3.809 BTC!
