The only noticeable change is the indicator or note on top of the site. Back in 2014, this note stated that the site was on Beta testing and that the minimum bet was set at 0.0001 BTC minimum and 0.001 BTC maximum. At the time we did this review, the minimum bet has not changed but the maximum bet amount has been reduced to 0.0003.
We tried contacting BitBandit regarding this but we have not received a reply so far. It didn’t help that the site kept going offline. We actually spent several days reviewing this online casino because we had to postpone the review as the site occasionally went down.
That aside, get to know what makes BitBandit special and be aware of the things that you may not like about it by reading more of our BitBandit review.
BitBandit is a slot game. What is shown on the site is a virtual slot machine. To play, you just have to operate it in the same way you would be playing with other slot machine games online. You just have to place your bet and click on the Spin button.
The prize scheme is as follows:
- You get 5,000x the bet you placed if you get three “prohibited signs” in a row. These “prohibited” signs actually look like a “no to Illuminati” symbol.
- Your prize is 1,000x of your bet if you get three bitcoin logos in a row.
- You get 200x of your bet if you get three Guy Fawkes masks (the iconic “anonymous” mask) in a row.
- The prize is 100x of your bet if you get three onions in a row.
- It’s 50x if you get three anarcho-punk symbols in a row.
- If you get three peace symbols, the prize is 25x of your bet.
- Even if you don’t get three in a row, you can still win 10x or 2x if you get any 2 bitcoins or any 1 bitcoin symbol respectively.
The game interface is highly intuitive. There’s nothing complicated about it. It’s also responsive. However, the site had been having severe downtimes. As mentioned earlier, it frequently went offline that we had to keep postponing this review. The game was highly responsive (no lags, good animation) when it was online but it was very frustrating when it went offline all of a sudden.
We initially thought that there is no demo version for the game. However, after doing some searching, we discovered that there’s a “Testnet” version. This is essentially the demo version. We actually discovered it while looking at the indexed pages of BitBandit to find out if there’s still a way to access it since it had been having irritatingly repetitive downtimes. The Testnet version of the game never went offline during the time were doing this review.
Bitcoin is the only currency used on BitBandit. To make deposits, you just have to send bitcoins to the BTC wallet address indicated on the game. To withdraw, you just have to click on the Cashout button beside the bitcoin balance indicator.
There are no fees for deposits/bet placing and withdrawals presented on the website. We sent inquiries regarding this but we failed to get a reply.
The phrase “play money” is mentioned on the site a few times but be informed that this does not mean play money in the usual sense we use the phrase in our reviews. Play money on BitBandit is simply the money or bitcoins used for playing, not some virtual currency that has no value.
Despite not offering “real play money,” we are still considering BitBandit as a free bitcoin casino because of its Testnet or demo version, which allows players to play even without placing a debt. Of course, nothing can be won with the demo version but it’s good having it to be able to try the game before deciding to actually place a bitcoin bet.
