It is not a conventional looking website and has certain features, which we will explore more in the article, which really caught my eye. The color scheme is an interesting combination of green, orange, white and blue. Let’s take a walk through the 1xBit showroom to see if there is more to what meets the eye.
Creating an account with 1xBit is a simple process where all you will need to do is enter your email address, password, re-enter your password. You are assigned a username.
You will receive a notification stating that you will receive an activation link to your email where you have 72 hours to confirm the link.
Once you have completed the email verification process, you are asked if you would like to turn on notifications. I am personally not a fan of this as it takes away from the anonymity of gambling online.
I opted for Block in this instance. What I have found with these types of notifications is they sprawl across your screen with pop up offerings, which is not how crypto gambling is meant to be.
As soon as you open the casino you are shown all it has to offer in terms of promotions. You are shown the welcome bonus, the current hot sports event, some free spins offerings and then a banner showing their EuroClub.In order to start receiving these bonuses, you will need to enable the function in the “My Account” section by selecting “Take part in bonus offers”. Let’s go through all the current promotions available to you.
This is a Sportsbook specific promotion and you will need to place bets of at least 0.2 mBTC at odds of 1.5 or higher on specific football league games to receive tickets which are then entered into prize draws. The prize draws take place at the end of every match day in the group stage and you can win up to 10 mBTC with the other winnings being free bets up to 9 mBTC. Once all group stages are completed, all tickets purchased then go into a final draw where the top prize is 140 mBTC.
The welcome bonus is a tiered promotion which offers up to 7 BTC in match bonuses.
The wagering requirement for these bonuses is 40 times the bonus amount received, and only 50% of the wagering using “other” providers contributes to the overall clearing of the bonus. You can use these bonuses for Sports betting as well and the requirements there would be that you will need to place single and accumulator bets with odds of at least 1.60 that have not been refunded.
Happy Hour free spins
If you make a deposit of 5mBTC or more between 18:00 and 22:00 GMT on a Wednesday or a Friday, you will receive some extra free spins to enjoy. There are tiered quantities.
The games change from time to time, so be sure to check which game the spins are on before claiming the offer.
They have a regular cashback program which is tier based.
With VIP status, you’ll receive cashback daily and between 5% and 25% of spend. You will also receive additional VIP promo points, but there is no specific information on this available on the website. Once you have accumulated points, you can withdraw the bonus points in the VIP Cashback Portal found under My Account.
Coins and Payments
The Crypto Currencies accepted at 1xBit are quite varied. They accept: BTC, ETH & various tokens, TRX & various tokens, BCH, ETH classic, XRP, LTC, DOGE, Dash, ZCash, NEM, BitShares, Digibyte, Verge, QTUM, Cardano, Stellar, Polkadot, Avalanche, Cosmos, Lightning Network BTC, Polygon, Algorand, BSC tokens
I made a standard BTC deposit by following these steps:
Click on “Deposit” found at the top left hand side.
Click on BTC and read through the warning regarding the network specifics
Click on Confirm
Scan the QR code or copy the address offered to your Wallet
Insert the amount you wish to deposit in your wallet
Click Send and your funds will be on their way to the casino.
My deposit took 22 minutes to get to my account. The fee was really high considering the amount of time it took. It was 40% of my deposit amount, so I deposited $20 and the fee was $8. I was not able to process a withdrawal on my side this time, but the minimum withdrawal amount is 5 mBTC.
It can take up to 24 hours for the withdrawal to be processed and withdrawals are processed every single day. There is no request for KYC when processing a withdrawal, which is great for our anonymous community.
There is absolutely no shortage of games at 1xBit casino. They offer Sports book, Live games, eSports, Slots, Live Casino, Toto, TV games, Lotto and crypto games. When it comes to casino games specifically, you have various categories you can choose from. They are neatly sectioned to the left of the lobby:
The casino offers the latest in games from no less than 50 game providers. The sportsbook is thorough with your local teams taking priority in the options. They offer a massive variety of sports to bet on, ranging from the standard Football, Tennis, Basketball, Ice Hockey, and Volley ball to the lesser known Martial Arts, Snooker, Trotting and Lacrosse. You can even bet on the weather! 1xBit also offers Live Dealer games ranging from Roulette to BlackJack, Poker to Teen Patti.
No KYC required to deposit or withdraw
Anonymous game play
User friendly app available
Massive variety of games available
High minimum withdrawal amount compared to depositing amount
Live chat is slow to respond
Poor community reputation
1xBit boasts 24/7 customer support, but you are introduced to Live Chat by an automated bot and you need to go through articles before you have the option of speaking to an agent. I found that if you read through 1 article as recommended and then type in “Support Agent” you will be prompted to speak directly to an agent. I spoke to an agent who was quite slow to reply and also, spelling mistakes. Now, don’t get me wrong I am all for spelling mistakes proving authenticity, but to a point. I waited a whole 5 minutes for a response, the least you can do is check the spelling.
Again quite a delay with their sign off, which is not great, but having worked in the industry for many years, I can understand, again, to a point.
Geos and Languages
The site is offered in a variety of numerous languages, but not all games are available in all languages. The languages you can choose from are: English, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Greek, Spanish, Suomi, French, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Polish, Hindi
And more 1xBit is not available in the USA, UK, Cyprus, the Netherlands. When you try access the casino from these jurisdictions, you will see the below error:
There is no mention of not being allowed to use a VPN, so if you wish to go down this route make it a small tester option first.
I am quite impressed to see that 1xBit has an app both on Android and Apple.
You will need to load the app through your download file. The app is great! Concise, and very easy to use. I am on the fence with which platform I prefer, the app or the webpage, both are equally as good.
The only downfall of the app is that it cannot be used in landscape mode, at all. I went into a few games which forced me to change back to portrait to continue on the casino. If you opt to not use the app, you can simply play using the mobile website version, but the app is widely recommended.
Website Response Time
The response for the website is quite laggy and does need some work. According to our trusted Performance report website, it has really large network payloads, slow initial server response time and uses render-blocking resources which is what causes the first time load delays.
Security and Community reputation
1xBit is quite security conscious with the email verification on registration, and then once you are logged in you will receive a notification to upgrade your account security. They offer 2FA, email login enabling and security questions for when you try to sign in or need to reset your password. They also suggest that you update your casino password once every 3 months. The community is on the fence about 1xBit with many reporting the lack of licence being its biggest issue, while others claim it to be a trusted website and casino. Bitcoitalk.org has many threads relating to 1xBit. Many complaints about accounts being closed, scammer casino, errors on games, the most recent post being made in 2021.
If you are looking for a casino with a little less offerings and more focused on pure casino gaming, we suggest you try out:
Betfury - this has quite a large offering of games, but it also offers a passive source of income with free boxes, staking and its own token
PiratePlay - this group does not offer sportsbook as an option, and have a remarkable theme with a great loyalty program
Having spent quite some time with 1xBit casino I have found that it has a ton to offer, with its unique look and feel and fun energy about it. If you are into Sports betting this is absolutely the place for you with its wonderful variety of unusual offerings in the betting realm. When it comes to not being licensed, their support team and a poor community reputation, they lose major points there from us. A strong support team will help players overlook the lack of license and the opinions of the community, but if you are hitting a miss on all three of these categories we raise our eyebrows. With all our reviews and suggestions, we advise caution with making large deposits straight off the cuff, especially with this casino. Give it a few tries before investing and keep a cool head when making those wagers.
