Bitsler is not an ordinary Bitcoin casino: It defines itself as the "Bitcoin gambling platform". Although it does not have enough games to be called a platform, it still offers innovative features and an insight into what the next generation online casinos will look like. Founded in March 2015, Bitsler promises a very different gambling experience, and at the same time offers a Bitcoin faucet. Supported currencies are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Burst.
Bitsler has anonymous gambling feature. You do not need to share your credentials while registering or withdrawing money. No ID authentication is needed too. As a matter of fact, when you visit the site for the first time, you can start playing with a randomly created username. However, you need to provide an e-mail address & password to deposit money. Therefore, no country restrictions apply. But as always, you have to be older than 18.
User Experience and Design
Bitsler has one of the most unique interfaces we have seen. The interface looks like an investment screen at first glance. It may look a bit strange for those who are not accustomed. The screen is divided into 4 sections: The bar on the left side contains links that you'll use often. In the middle of the screen is the game interface, below it is the leaderboard. The right part is devoted to the community chat feature. With the links at the top of the page, you determine the currency you will use and reach your account settings. The design is quite colorful but contains many “buttons”. In other words, a familiarization process is required to efficiently use the features offered.
The Bitsler website is encoded in HTML5, so it's compatible with all mobile devices. But the complexity of the interface does not give good results on the small screens. Especially mobile phone users will have difficulties. The loading times of the games are quite long. This is due to the community chat feature. As a matter of fact, the other pages where the chat window is not available load very fast. While playing in Bitsler, you can chat with other players in real time. However, if you are easily offended, we advise you to close the chat screen: Conversation can become very "nasty" and it is not possible to use any filters. Bitsler does not have a mobile app, but none required: Everything the mobile app can offer is already in the mobile version of the site.
Bonuses & Promotions
Like most Bitcoin casinos, Bitsler does not offer a bonus and/or promotion. However, all members can benefit from the following features:
- Bitcoin Faucet: The Bitcoin faucet distributes free BTC at certain intervals. The amount of BTC you can get is determined by your membership level. As a new member, we were able to get 0.00000150 BTC every 5 minutes. You can use the Bitcoins you get to play games.
- Affiliate: If a friend registers and deposits using your referral link, you earn 10% bonus.
Games on Offer
Bitsler has 4 games in total:
- Dice: No, this is not craps. Simply put, you bet on whether the outcome of the dice will be higher or lower than a certain number. If you guess correctly, you win two times your bet.
- Roulette: When this review was written, the roulette game was not active, so we do not have any information about the features of the game.
- Cara Y Cruz: A simple head/tails game. However, 3 coins are used each round. You can bet on 3 combinations in total. The reward amount is pretty low, but your chances of winning (according to your choices) are up to 87.50%.
- Multicolor: Wheel of fortune game. But there are only colors on the wheel. You can bet on any of 4 different colors. Progressive jackpot feature is also available.
Slot machines or card games are not available. Bitsler games are quite different from the classic casino games. The rules are much simpler and some even look like children's games. The only thing that can give you a challenge is the interface: The locations of the buttons are so strange that you have a hard time recognizing what you need to do until you get used to it. All of the games have provably fair feature but none are free to play. However, by using Bitcoin faucet feature, you can get a very small starting capital.
Bitsler does not have any license, but this is normal: Anonymous gambling sites do not (and cannot) use a license. The fairness control of the games is done by the users. Every page of the website is encrypted with 128-bit SSL. You can also protect your account with the two-factor security feature provided by Google Authenticator. Moreover, you can use this feature without losing your anonymity.
You can only withdraw funds as Bitcoin and other altcoins. The withdrawal process is quite simple, and each game interface already offers this option. After you enter your Bitcoin address, the process is completed within a few minutes. If you like, you can also switch between encrypted currencies. For example, you can deposit as Bitcoin and withdraw as Ethereum. The minimum withdrawal limit is 0.002 BTC. There is also a 0.0002 BTC commission cut for each transaction.
You can deposit money with Bitcoin and the other altcoins listed above. Each deposit requires 1 network confirmation. Minimum deposit amount is 0.001 BTC. Deposit transactions are not subject to a commission.
The only support method on the Bitsler site is a contact form. However, you can contact customer service staff using the community chat feature. In addition, support is provided via BitCoinTalk and Reddit.
If you are looking for a classic online casino experience, you will not find it in Bitsler. This is a next-generation casino and it promises a very different experience with both its games and features. House edge is lower than 1% and the chances of winning are the same for all players: It does not matter whether you are a professional or a beginner. Future online casinos will look like Bitsler, so we suggest you try it already.
