The slots category had 28 games when we did this review. Additionally, there were 12 video poker games on the site, including Oasis Poker, Texas Hold’em, and Trey Poker. Lastly, the site had 4 casual games. These are Minesweeper, Heads and Tails, Scratch Dice, and Horse Racing Flash.
All of the casino games come with their respective Play for Fun version or demo mode. Feel free to try the games first before making any actual bitcoin betting or real money gambling.
The games are loaded in pop-up windows. Game loading time is around average, and sometimes slower than average. Be aware, though, that you can only load one a game at a time. If you try loading another game, it will only take the place of the one you already opened. Only one pop-up gets opened so don’t be surprised if you try opening another game and no new pop-up window appears.
The Live Casino section of BetPhoenix features live baccarat, blackjack, roulette games. If you are not familiar with live dealer games, the site offers some useful video tutorials.
On the other hand, the BetPhoenix Racebook or horse race wagering section features races from the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes, and Breeders’ Cup. It offers win payouts credited within a few minutes after a race is concluded. This section of BetPhoenix also features a comprehensive horse wagering guide, glossary, as well as handicapping strategies to help you get the most of your racebook playing experience.
The amounts are presented in US dollar (USD) on the BetPhoenix website. However, bitcoin deposits are also accepted. In fact, the site supports multiple deposit methods.
You can make deposits through Skrill, Person 2 Person Money Transfer, Person to Person Transaction, Neteller, checks, VISA credit and debit cards. Depending on the deposit method used, the minimum deposit amount required is from 50 USD to 1,000 USD. Making deposits through bitcoins has the lowest minimum deposit amount (50 USD) while making deposits through checks has the highest minimum deposit requirement (1,000 USD). Arguably, bitcoin is the most advantageous way to make deposits because it has the lowest minimum deposit requirement as well as the highest maximum deposit allowed (5,000 USD, tied with the check deposit maximum amount).
There are only three options for withdrawals: check, Person to Person Money Transfer, and Person to Person Transaction. At the time this BetPhoenix review was written, the site indicated that the bitcoin withdrawal option was not yet available. If you want to make check withdrawals, the minimum withdrawal amount is 1,000 USD while the maximum is 2,000 USD per week. A fee of 50 USD per check is charged for every withdrawal transaction. For Person to Person Transaction and Person 2 Person Money Transfer, the minimum and maximum withdrawal amounts are 100 USD and 700 USD respectively.
