Satoshi Buttons can be a good introduction to the world of online gambling with BTC. The site offers a single simple game but it covers many of the things you need to know when it comes to bitcoin gambling. It serves as a good guide to the process and mechanics of bitcoin gaming.
Here’s a caveat, though: If you are a newbie in bitcoin gambling and you don’t read our Satoshi Buttons review, you may not easily figure out what this site is all about. Satoshi Buttons is far from being a good model for a bitcoin betting site. It does not even provide detailed playing instructions or comprehensive information regarding the game mechanics. The site only has a total of three pages. These are the different pages for playing the game using different cryptocurrencies. Satoshi Buttons is not the usual bitcoin table games or card games site.
However, the Satoshi Buttons game is something so basic that we think if you get acquainted with it, you will find it easy to understand the terms and mechanics that are found in other online bitcoin casinos, as they are introduced to you later on. We can even say that the site can help you appreciate the advantages of cryptocurrency gambling and see a sampling of the drawbacks of the many bitcoin gambling sites that have.
You may understand and enjoy the game better by getting to know it more thoroughly first through our review.
As mentioned, Satoshi Buttons only offers one game. This game is like an extremely simplified scratchcard or minesweeper game. The game only asks you to place a bet and choose a button (the squarish cell on the game board) to reveal whether or not you get a price.
To place a bet, you have to choose the “price per button” you want. We initially thought that this should “prize per button” but we realized that that the prize is the bet amount times the number that will be revealed on the button. So “price” would be correct since it’s basically the bet you have to make or the price you pay in your attempt to win a prize.
Anyway, you have three options for price per button. It’s either 0.1x, 1x, or 10x. The price for 0.1x is 0.0001 BTC while it’s 0.001 BTC and 0.01 BTC for 1x and 10x respectively. There’s actually a fourth option, the orange Free button, but it is essentially the Play for Fun or Demo mode so there’s technically no price involved here. With it, you can proceed to playing without having to make any deposit. Also, you may notice that there are letters on the 0.1x, 1x, and 10x options. These are just indicators for the shortcut keys. If you press A on your keyboard, you will be choosing 0.1x, and so forth.
Once you’re done choosing your price, you can proceed to selecting a button on the board. Every time you click on the button, you will be asked to make a deposit. The deposit you will make should be at least equal to the price per button you chose. If you want to play 0.1x, you should deposit a minimum of 0.001 BTC. If you deposit more than the minimum required, you can proceed to playing without being asked to make a deposit every time you click on a button. A 1 BTC deposit, for example, allows you to continuously click on a button 10,000 times in the 0.1x price mode (assuming you never get to choose a winning button).
If you win (you pick a button with numbers), you win a prize that is equivalent to your price (the price per button indicated on top) multiplied by the number on the button you picked. Your prize is automatically added to your account balance. A button that does not have a number means zero and since any number multiplied by zero is zero, you lose your bet or the price you paid for picking the button you picked.
With Satoshi Buttons, you are not competing with anyone. The game just goes on and on. You may notice indicators on the game interface that show buttons that have been revealed at a certain point in time and the number of buttons that will be revealed before a new map (the game board) is loaded. You can stop whenever you want or you can go on and on until you lose all of your bitcoins or other cryptocurrency you are using.
Satoshi Buttons is a bitcoin multiplayer game. The board you are playing on is the same board that will be accessible to other players. That’s why most of the time, if you load the site, you will see that most of the buttons have already been revealed. If there are more players on the site, a game will end more quickly as more players click on buttons
Satoshi Buttons uses three cryptocurrencies. These are bitcoins (BTC), dogecoins (DOGE), and litecoins (LTC). You don’t have to be tied to a specific currency (after all there is no full-fledged account dashboard here that allows you to set your preferred currency). You can play with any of the three cryptocurrencies mentioned. You can play with one and switch to another anytime you want.
You will be playing with bitcoins by default. To switch to dogecoins and litecoins, just go to the bottom part of the site and find the “Play with…” section.
Deposits are to be made from your bitcoin wallet to the game’s wallet (for your account). It’s the usual setup you will find in other online casinos that accept BTC. You will be shown a QR code along with a bitcoin wallet address to where you will be sending your bitcoin deposit.
For the withdrawals, you just have to enter your bitcoin/dogecoin/litecoin wallet address to withdraw the balance you have in your account. Most withdrawals are completed instantly. A withdrawal fee is charged although not specified on the site.
You may also enjoy playing Satoshi Buttons without making any deposit as it is a free bitcoin casino. As mentioned earlier, it has a Free mode accessible by clicking the orange Free button on the top part of the site.
