Additional Information

Introduction

At one point last year I was quite keen to review this casino judging from what I had read and having seen all the positive feedback. Boy was I wrong. Once I got past all the hype and started looking for all the ‘not so good’ content, did the real truth start to emerge.

This was a huge shock really because the other casinos that are related to this one through ownership (Direx N.V now Dama N.V), most of those have got very good reviews, even from us.

Bitstarz will leave many game players polarized. They will experience the highs of the very good plus also experience the lows of the very bad.

Of the territories that we follow, the UK and the USA are banned from Bitstarz. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and South Africa are all ok.

If your country location is approved for access to the casino site, it doesn’t mean that you get access to all games. Many of the games developers have put restrictions on certain countries. There is a bewildering list of restrictions listed under Terms and Conditions clauses 1.8 and 1.9 detailing what countries are banned from what game developers.

Let’s dig in and see if we are walking down the yellow brick road or through a horror hall of mirrors.

In Summary

This casino racks up all sorts of positive reviews on the internet via review sites, but personally I can’t see what all the fuss about. These review sites never point out bad issues nor negative feedback. All they’re interested in doing is getting people to sign up through their affiliate code so they can make money off you. This alone should trigger alarm bells for you.

Unfortunately for Bitstarz, no matter how tarted up this website looks, there are too many issues that can’t go unattended. Here are the main grievances:

1. User feedback from across the internet regarding withdrawals is very bad. In fact, one of the worst that we’ve seen.
2. Despite having many game developers on their roster, this is offset by having country restrictions depending on who the developer is. As mentioned above, this is a bewildering list of conditions that could frustrate many game players based on where you are located and whether or not that country has access to the game.
3. I found the lobby main interface to be a bit muddling, and is not the visual diamond that many others say it is. Definitely there are other casino websites that are far better visually than this.
4. Where are the auditable statistics?

The site does play on the Bitcoin fishing line quite a bit. It may have been a novelty back in 2014, but 6-years later the novelty has worn off and everybody is doing cryptocurrency nowadays. So the point of difference is no longer there nor relevant.

After reading this review, do you still want to venture forward with Bitstarz? You would be a brave soul if you did.
