Bitcoin Reviewer Bitstars.net is the latest new Bitcoin based online casino in what seems to be a rapidly growing market place. The space itself has seen a lot of growth although the vast majority of these casinos tend to be rather drab and uninspiring, particularly when it comes to slot offerings. This is where Bitstars really shines.
Not only is the site very attractive and user friendly, but the games themselves are very high quality when compared to most in the Bitcoin casino space.
Those that do have a strong slots offering tend not to have the provably fair slots expected from a BTC-accepting casino. On the other hand, Bitstars offers a nice selection of provably fair slots as well as many other entertaining games.
Added to all this, Bitstars holds a data processing licence in Costa Rica. The software is also provably fair, and with most BTC casinos being completely unlicensed, this adds an extra layer of security for the players.
The Platform and Games
Bitstars’ games are quite interesting, as we’ve already mentioned. The quality of the games and graphics are very good. Several do look like clones of famous casino games. This is actually good news for BTC players because some casinos don’t have very visually appealing websites.
Here is a screenshot of a multihand blackjack game on the site. You can see that the software is well-designed and it has all of the features you would come to expect from a blackjack game.
Here is a French roulette table from Bitstars. Note the fact that you can easily place call bets and see the winning number after placing a spin.
The hash checking app on the site is also quite nice for those of you who want to check after every single spin that the reels were displayed fairly.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Again, this is another one of Bitstars’ selling points. Instant deposits and withdrawals are not only unusual in the online casino space as a whole, but they are also nice to have with Bitcoin casinos.
The feature certainly isn’t unique, but it is certainly a bonus. After all, not many players want to spend an hour waiting before they can get their winnings out.
A unique selling point offered by Bitstars is the ability for players to deposit via PayPal. Users can choose to fund their account with their PayPal balance, or use a credit/debit card.
Currently Bitstars is offering a welcome bonus on your 1st three deposits up to 1BTC. This comes through 3 stages of bonuses as shown in the below table.
Whilst this sort of offer is the norm, and actually rather unremarkable for a non-Bitcoin casino, it is actually one of the best in the Bitcoin world. In fact most don’t offer any welcome bonuses at all, meaning that the bonuses offered by Bitstars are actually very attractive.
Generally speaking, we found Bitstars customer service to be quick and efficient at handling our questions. The live chat feature is definitely a plus because you are able to communicate with a human directly without having to go through a ticket system. However, it should be noted that the site has launched only very recently and this may not fairly represent how the site will operate when they have more customers.
