Betcoin Casino Review
Betcoin.ag is a one-stop online gambling destination with a sportsbook and poker room, as well as a casino. The poker room is a multi-game site that is reached at betcoinpoker.ag. The sportsbook takes wagers on all major sports, with live or in-game betting available for some events.
This casino accepts five virtual currencies including bitcoin, and Bitcoin Cash is also available.
Established in 2013, Betcoin.ag facilitates anonymous accounts and welcomes players worldwide, including the USA. The casino lists no licensing information.
BTC / Crypto Deposits and Withdrawals
In addition to bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash, Betcoin.ag takes other cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum (ETH), litecoin (LTC) and dash (DASH). They have a Payment Methods section that also lists Ripple, Monero, IOTA and Cardano, but we did not see those as options in the Deposit section.
Registering is simple and anonymous. All you do is click on Join, create a username and give them your email address. The casino will send you a confirmation email that you must respond to by clicking on the accompanying link. Then you get a Reset Password page where you click Log In, set your password and click Save.
When you are registered you are taken to an account page with all your stuff on it. On that page is a Wallet Deposit area where currency choices are. To deposit bitcoin, select BTC and click on Generate New Address. You will then get the casino’s bitcoin address to copy into your personal wallet. Just set an amount and send the bitcoin. Your new Betcoin.ag balance should be reflected immediately.
Betcoin.ag Casino has a minimum deposit amount of .0001 BTC, but you should keep in mind that .05 BTC is the minimum amount for the bonuses we saw. Now maximum amount is listed, outside of the bonus maximums.
Just below the Wallet Deposit area is a Withdraw button. To take money out click Withdraw and you will get a dropdown with your balance and spaces to fill in your personal bitcoin address and an amount. Click Withdraw and your money is on its way. You should receive the money instantly, possibly with the exception of amounts over 1 BTC.
If you agreed to a bonus, make sure you have met its requirements before trying to withdraw.
Betcoin.ag Bonuses and Rewards
Betcoin.ag Casino bonuses work a little differently from most bonuses, because they are retroactive. In other words, after you have wagered a certain amount, the bonus is actually awarded.
Here are the bonuses, up front:
First deposit match of 100% for up to 1 BTC (1,000 credits), plus 1 free spin.
2nd deposit 50% up to 1 BTC, 1 free spin.
3rd deposit 25% up to 1 BTC and 1 free spin.
The retroactive part works like this:
You must earn 1,000 points in the casino’s tiered points program before the bonus actually kicks in. You earn those points by wagering; 100 chips (credits) equals 2 points.
When you get to that goal (your account should let you know), you submit a ticket with your login name, the amount that you deposited and what number deposit it was. The casino verifies this information and you get your bonus amount.
There are a couple more hitches to this bonus. First, once you have received the bonus, you still have to wager 50 times the amount of the bonus to qualify to withdraw any money. Then, you should be aware that only Betsoft slots apply to these bonuses.
The minimum deposit for all three bonuses is .05 BTC.
You can find details of the bonuses in the Bonuses section and the Support section.
Betcoin.ag Casino has a tiered rewards program called VIP Player’s Club. In this program, you earn all sorts of special perks that get better the more you bet. There are separate rewards setups for casino games and dice.
You start at the Bronze III Level, and after you have earned 1,000 points, you get to Bronze II, the level that starts your bonus. Betting 50 credits or chips, earns 1 point. The rewards include percentages of betback, for your wagers; lossback, for your losses; extra bonuses and spins; and a Surprise Box, given randomly, with the higher levels receiving bigger prizes.
Check the VIP section for rewards details.
Casino Game Selection and Software
The suite of casino games at Betccoin.ag is strong for a full-service casino. You can play most of them for free, without even registering, and the games we tried loaded up quickly and ran with few hitches.
When we were there, Betcoin.ag had at least 150 games, and from reputable software providers such as Betsoft, Bgaming, Ezugi, Endorphina, Evolution Gaming and more.
There are two menus with all sorts of categories, and you can search for a favorite game by title or provider. We liked the games menu that had dropdowns for All Games, Slots, Table Games and Video Poker.
We saw more than 120 slots games, with 3- and 5-reel games with multiple paylines and a variety of themes. At The Copa, Boomanji, and Birds were among the fun titles we noticed. We didn’t see any pot totals in the jackpot slots section, but there are nearly 40 games there, including lucrative titles such as The Slotfather, Mr. Vegas and Greedy Goblins.
There is a blackjack section with nearly 30 games of all sorts, including live games. Other table games on the Betcoin.ag game roster include Pontoon, baccarat, high-low games, various versions of roulette and a couple of craps games.
Dice and keno are among the casual games available, but there is a whole lineup of virtual games, from league sports to horse and dog racing.
We saw 16 video poker games, including all of the standards, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Joker Poker and more.
Betcoin.ag Casino has a complete lineup of 16 live dealer games for people who like the atmosphere of a brick-and-mortar casino. You can find just about any game you would find in Las Vegas – blackjack, baccarat, roulette, Casino Hold’em, Caribbean Stud, and three card games.
Want to bring it all with you? Many Betcoin.ag Casino games are available in mobile version. Just direct the browser of your iPhone, Android, iPad or other mobile device to betcoin.ag and play. The advancement of HTML5 technology has improved instant play vastly at sites like this. We found the loads and playing quick and easy, but since equipment and connections vary widely, we suggest you give the games a try, if you plan a lot of mobile play.
Provably Fair Games
When we visited the site, there were 10 provably fair games of dice, blackjack, and baccarat. They each come with a five-part tool with all of the pre-deal information in each game.
As far as the fairness of the rest of the Betcoin.ag games goes, we do know that most of the software providers for this site routinely test their games and publish the results.
Betcoin.ag has a main Support section with a comprehensive FAQ that should handle most general questions. They also have a live chat section for quicker Q&A. We had mixed results with this; one time they put us in a queue, and we remained there for 15 mins before they got to us; another time they answered within a minute. Their answers were straightforward and informative.
For more detailed inquiries, they offer an email address, [email protected]. We saw no phone support.
This seems to be a lively site with a lot going on, including all sorts of forums and news items. For bitcoin players whose gambling tastes vary, this is a nice stop.
If you are a straight up casino player, give Betcoin.ag a close look. But we wouldn’t suggest taking up the bonus, unless you’ve studied the requirements and can handle them.
