Only a couple of days after exposing Pin Up casino’s customer support and withdrawal procedure (mal)practices, we bring you one more insightful report. This time, our mission was to take a closer look at one crypto-optimized online casino which accepts US players- the Bovada casino. LCB member Juggaloroscoe played and tested the site, making this report possible.
As a part of our newest project From the Players for the Players, we explore not only the rogue ones but renowned hubs as well, just to make sure they still deserve to be whitelisted.
What inspired us to test Bovada casino, is the fact that surfing the internet you will encounter many questions regarding this operator- “Is it legal?”, “Can I trust it?”, “Does it pay out?”, and so on.
As far as the comments and votes on OUR platform say, this facility is a well-rated one, which is an extra reason to double-check its reputation.
Would you like to see how smooth was Bovada casino deposit and cashout? Stay tuned to hear details of LCB’s first-hand experience with this BTC-friendly casino!
Introducing Crypto-Friendly Bovada Casino
Being part of the industry since 2011, this online casino which accepts United States players claims to be a brand that offers “an experience like no other”. Aligned with a couple of popular software developers among which RTG, Revolver Gaming, ViG, and Rival, it is home to a highly diversified collection of games.
Although not the most massive portfolio you can encounter…
…it has more than enough for all profiles of players. Depending on personal preferences, one can place bets in the feature-rich sportsbook and racebook, face competition in the poker room, or hang out in the Sin City-style casino.
In addition to this, the operator offers a variety of promotional offers, special campaigns for Bitcoin users, as well as Refer a Friend. Also, there’s a VIP scheme with a plethora of incentives and multiple levels of advancement.
On the surface…
…we can say that things look rather fine and attractive. That was, like we said, an extra reason for us to recheck it, just to make sure the impressions remain the same when we dig a bit deeper.
What the majority of BTC-friendly casinos have in common is a non-complicated registration process. A punter is usually required to fill in a simple form, and leave a couple of personal information, which is, as you know, a standard practice in a majority of web-based venues, including Bovada.
Having finished this step…
…we were required to verify a phone number as well. This step is a mandatory part of the process, so to minimize the potential issues later while depositing or withdrawing. After completing phone verification successfully, we headed to the cashier to make a deposit.
The entire Bovada casino registration process took less than 5 minutes, which is super-fast.
Let’s Deposit and Play Some Slots, Shall We?
As you know, BTC holds the reputation of a most efficient asset for making deposits and withdrawals. Knowing that this facility accepts this payment asset, we decided to see how efficient our transactions will be.
According to the official Terms:
“To deposit funds in your Account you must first supply such information as is required, which will depend upon the method of payment that you select for making the deposit. Once you have supplied the required information, you will be able to make a deposit request from the cashier page of your Account.”
After registering, we went to the cashier, a window appeared, which informed us to create a 4-digit security code. Just like the phone number validation, this step is also essential, as it serves to verify one’s identity when making a cashout request.
When accessing the cashier…
…we were informed that the funds need to be sent only to the address provided below, otherwise one risks losing the funds. Also, in case the amount is smaller than 0.00005 BTC (or the market equivalent of $5 or less), one won’t be able to replenish the account.
We decided to place $200. The instructions are very clear and understandable. All it takes is to follow them, and nothing will go wrong. Just like the sign-up process, this step was completed within a couple of minutes.
The only thing we’d like to stress out particularly here is that if you choose mBTC instead of USD as your preferred currency, you will play games in mBTC with a minimum .2 mBTC bet.
Our next move?
Checking out the gaming library, of course!
Our choices were Golden Buffalo and Golden Gorilla slots.
The Time Has Come to Test Withdrawal!
Making sure responsibility and transparency are always with us, we checked the Terms to see if there are any special requirements for cashouts.
“To withdraw funds from your Account you will need to request a withdrawal from the Cashier page of your Account. You may request a withdrawal of any amount up to the full balance of your Account. If we are satisfied that you have complied with the Terms, all AML, and fraud-screening requirements, and all rules relating to the Games and any related bonuses, the payout shall be made to you. The manner in which the withdrawal is processed may be restricted, depending on the means by which the initial deposit(s) was/were made to the applicable Account. Without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to conclude your withdrawal request by an alternative method or process at our discretion. If for whatever reason, a payout request cannot be approved, a Customer Services Representative will contact you.”
So, we made a request, wanting to withdraw $50, and when accessing the cashier, we were given some useful bits of info regarding processing time and limits.
As far as stated, the min amount to require is $10, while the max is unlimited. Processing time per installment is up to 15 minutes.
Having in mind that this is a BTC transaction, we didn’t have to go through the KYC procedure. However, phone verification was mandatory, and the code was sent to the phone. Our request was confirmed.
The next day- request approved, we received our money!
Like with the two previous stages, everything was flawless, without any obstacles, misunderstandings, or unpleasant situations.
We are happy to confirm that Bovada casino’s fine reputation on our platform is more than well-deserved. It has successfully passed our testing in three crucial fields- registration, depositing, and cashout.
