Crypto 1xBit looks fantastic at first glance. It has a massive range of casino games, from pretty much every big name provider there is. It also includes live casino games, not just from Evolution Gaming but from other providers too. There’s a sportsbook as well. From the outside looking in, it offers fantastic services and features. This is massively undermined by the lack of regulatory license. In fact, the website just has a simple “All rights reserved and protected by law” notice at the bottom of the page. It’s not exactly filling us with much confidence so far, but everyone deserves a chance so we will push on and see exactly what it has to offer customers.
Bonuses and promotions
The bonuses are definitely a good start for 1xBit. The welcome bonus in particular is a very generous one and gives players a good opportunity to increase the size of their bankroll.
The welcome bonus is split up across the first four deposits. It’s quite an impressive bonus altogether, players can get up to 7 BTC as a matched bonus from the first four deposits that they make. This is one of the bigger bonuses around and puts 1xBit right in front of a lot of other casinos. It’s important to note that the bonus is available with other currencies and will use an equivalent value to the BTC value listed here.
The first deposit is a 100% matched bonus of up to 1 BTC. The bonus is paid out as long as you make a minimum deposit of 5 mBTC. There is no need for a bonus code or anything, all it requires is the deposit to be made after registering.
The second deposit is a 50% matched bonus which also awards up to 1 BTC. As with the first deposit there’s a minimum deposit amount of 5 mBTC.
The third deposit is probably the most rewarding of the four. Here players are given a 100% matched bonus of up to 2 BTC, there’s also a 5 mBTC minimum deposit required in order to get access to the deposit.
The fourth deposit is a 50% matched bonus of up to 3 BTC, just like the others it has a 5 mBTC minimum deposit for this bonus.
Because of these four initial deposits it means that players have access to a total of 7 BTC as a welcome bonus. In order to get the full amount you would need to deposit 11 BTC, which is quite a significant chunk. The minimum welcome bonus that can be gained works out at 15 mBTC across the four initial deposits, so if you want to place a smaller amount you can still get access to the bonus.
1xBit also has other promotions that run. These include reload promotions, sportsbooks promotions and free spin promotions. The other available promotions change on a regular basis, so if you want to know what’s running currently it’s best to check the promotions page at the site.
The wagering requirements at 1xBit are set at 40 times the deposit amount. So if you deposited 1 BTC for each of your first four deposits, you would have to wager through 4 BTC 40 times before you could make a withdrawal. This is a little bit unfair as the bonus received would be 3 BTC for deposits of that value, but it’s still better than some other casinos that require players to wager through the combined value of the bonus and deposit.
Despite this seemingly positive news about bonuses, there is a problem with 1xBit. A number of players have reported that they did not receive their bonuses after making a deposit. This is the first red flag, especially as there is no regulator in place to watch out for this kind of behaviour.
Crypto 1xBit has a really good range of games on offer to players. It’s one of the best selections around. It’s not just the standard casino games that are on offer, but the sportsbook is also very impressive. This will instantly stand out to players because essentially what people love is a good variety of choice.
The problem that 1xBit has is that there is no certification available to ensure that it is using legitimate versions of the games it offers. This isn’t to say that the games here are definitely fake versions, they might not be. But, with the lack of regulation, lack of game certification and the history of not giving players their bonuses it does paint an unimpressive picture of 1xBit. A certificate from eCOGRA to show that the games have been tested and proven to be fair would go a long way to assuage any doubts about the legitimacy of the games.
Despite the trust issues, it doesn’t mean that the games are definitely unfair. If the evidence so far hasn’t put you off then there is a large selection of titles to play here. Pragmatic Play, iSoftBet and Betsoft all have titles on offer here. Although NetEnt and Microgaming are both conspicuous by their absence. With all of this being said, here’s a quick rundown of what’s on offer to play at 1xBit.
Everyone knows video slots are the main area that players look to in the modern world. With 1xBit only accepted crypto it means that you don’t have to worry about finding slots that are fiat currency only, all of the slots that 1xBit has on offer can be played with crypto. The selection of games that are available is one of the absolute best on the market. There’s easily over 1,500 video slots to play here and more are being added all of the time. If you’re a fan of slots then you will certainly be able to find a game that will cater to your tastes. The search function also means that it’s nice and easy to find a specific game without having to do lots of scrolling. We’ve chosen some of the top titles available here as an example of what you can find:
- Golden Sacred Beasts
- White Rabbit Megaways
- Pot O’ Gold
- Leprechaun Wishes
It’s a little harder to find the table games that 1xBit offers to players. This is because it doesn’t have its own section. The table games are all hidden away under the 1xGames tab. You can find them using the search function, and you will need to because scrolling through all the games will take a long time. Despite this difficulty all of the standard table games are offered, although there aren’t many variations of each game. Here are the table games that are available:
Live dealer games
In terms of live dealer games, 1xBit knocks it out of the park. There are games here from Evolution Gaming, Vivo Gaming and plenty of other up and coming software providers. They’re all crypto friendly which gives you a great range of titles to play. Here are some of the live dealer titles that are on offer at 1xBit:
- Lightning Baccarat
- Unlimited Blackjack
- Blaze Roulette
- 2 Hand Casino Holdem
The jackpot section at 1xBit is a bit like the table games and hidden away. In order to find it you need to open the slots tab and then click on the jackpot button in the search bar. It’s a bit long winded, but once you’ve done it the jackpot games all appear. With both NetEnt and Microgaming missing from 1xBit it means that the jackpot selection is a bit limited. There are a lot of titles here, but they’re not the games at the top of the market. Here are a few that you can play here:
- Great Panda
- Tiger’s Gold
- Son of Egypt
There’s no specific Bitcoin section at Crypto 1xBit. The reason behind this is pretty simple, it’s crypto only so all of the games can be played with Bitcoin.
Design, experience and mobile compatibility
The design of the site has some good and bad points to it. The loading times are a little longer than other sites on the market. This is instantly a little bit annoying, especially if you like to play a number of different games in every session.
The actual layout of the site is very good though. There are links to all of the different sections of the site which makes finding a specific type of game very easy. There is also a search bar which makes finding individual games a breeze. If you have a favourite software provider you can also search by providers too. This makes finding games that you enjoy a simple task. Registration is completed in seconds and consists of a single button click. This does help to claw back some of the time that the slow loading takes up.
The mobile site is very similar to the desktop version of the 1xBit. It has similar issues in regards to loading times, however 1xBit has attempted to alleviate this problem. There is a mobile app available which is optimised to a higher level than the mobile browser site. It means that the site loads up slightly faster and everything has been streamlined. Of course there are some titles missing from the mobile browser and app roster, but this is to be expected with any mobile casino. 1xBit does a good job of catering for mobile players which is nice to see.
Customer service and support
The customer service at 1xBit is relatively good. There are specific email addresses that can be found through the contacts page. These all give players the chance to contact a particular department if they are having a problem. There is also an email contact form embedded into the page where players can bring up specific issues. The live chat is available to players 24/7 and on the whole gets a fast response from the operatives. The responses tend to be well researched and answer the questions to a good level.
Where 1xBit falls down is if there is a problem that requires resolving. A number of former players have commented that they made deposits to 1xBit and it was never credited to their account. One player did manage to get the funds back, but it took over a month and they never even managed to play a game at the site in that time. So, while simple questions will get a fast response, a more serious problem will get either a poor answer or just straight up ignored.
Deposits, withdrawals and security
Crypto 1xBit has a TLS security certificate. While this might sound unfamiliar to many people, it’s actually a newer encryption protocol in comparison to SSL. What TLS doesn’t offer in comparison to SSL is the ability to use both protocols. So, while TLS might be newer, it’s generally regarded as inferior to SSL. This isn’t necessarily a worry, but it does show that Crypto 1xBit perhaps doesn’t dedicate as much time to security as they should.
The different cryptocurrency exchanges that can be used at Crypto 1xBit are very wide and varied. We’ve shown a snapshot of some of the deposit options available here below, but this makes up just 15% of the total methods available. These methods should add funds to your account within minutes, but as previously covered 1xBit aren’t the most reliable when it comes to adding funds to accounts. There are also plenty of other cryptos available to be used on top of Bitcoin, which is a positive.
What is strange is that when clicking on the withdrawal tab at 1xBit no options are shown. While the assumption would be that this is a simple error in the site coding, perhaps it’s a subtle way of 1xBit admitting they don’t intend to give you your money back.
Don’t play at Crypto 1xBit Casino. It doesn’t matter how good the game choice is, and it’s a very good selection of games. It doesn’t matter how good the sportsbook is, and it’s a very good sportsbook. It doesn’t matter that it’s a completely crypto friendly casino. None of the good things about 1xBit matter. It’s not trustworthy. There is no regulatory license, which should always be a red flag right from the start. There are lots of stories about people being conned out of both deposits and bonuses out there, not people losing wagers and complaining, but people placing a deposit and it just never appearing in the account.
Because of all of this 1xBit gets a rating of 1.5. This is probably too high for a site that should be avoided, but in all honesty it’s a shame that it’s so shady. There is a lot of good going on here. If this was a legitimate site it would definitely be one of the best around. Avoid this casino, just take a look through our other reviews to find a casino that does behave properly and will treat you fairly.
They do. Not just the casino games, but the sportsbook as well. There are some video slots that only count towards 50% of the wagering requirements and sports wagers must have odds of over 1.60 in order to count. Other than that, everything counts.
There isn’t. This is the first red flag that sprung up about this casino. In general, if there’s no license in place then you probably shouldn’t trust that casino.
There’s no verification when you sign up here. As soon as you click register you are instantly given a username and a password. No details are taken. While anonymous playing is a positive for some players, 1xBit is an example where this method can be used in an unscrupulous manner.
Not at the moment. This might change in the future and if it does it will be announced via the bonuses page on the 1xBit site.
No. As mentioned multiple times throughout this review the site is not trustworthy. There’s no proof that the games are legitimate versions, no license and a number of players who’ve had their deposits taken. Steer clear and find somewhere that will treat you fairly.
