An online casino that presents itself as a team of champions who know how to provide adventures in an exciting and safe way does sound attractive, doesn’t it? Curious to find out whether these claims are true, LCB delegated a tester to take a closer look at Curacao-licensed, non-US friendly DRIP Casino.
As the operator also promises quick and easy transactions, our team once again decided to test the efficiency with processing Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals. This method is highly appreciated as the one that usually incurs minimum or no hassle at all, yet there are differences.
Before revealing all the insights the tester shared with us after visiting DRIP Casino, we’d like to share these key points with you:
- Tester of the day: RedApple
- Registration date: October 9, 2023
- Deposit of EUR 200/ 0.007592 BTC made on October 9, 2023, received EUR 199.94 on the same day
- Withdrawal of EUR 50 via BTC requested on October 9, 2023
- Withdrawal of EUR 50 / BTC 0.00192444 on October 9, 2023
Usually, when the entire process is completed within a single day, we assume that no problems emerged to spoil our tester’s investigation. Was that the case this time? Let’s find out!
DRIP Casino Overview
Licensed by Curacao, crypto-optimized DRIP Casino is home to an impressively large selection of slots, live casino, V-sports, instant games, table games, and live casino games. Teamed up with a wide array of forward-thinking content developers such as Relax Gaming, Wazdan, CT Interactive, 3 Oaks Gaming, Nolimit City, and many more, it accommodates both freshly launched hits and all-time favorite classics.
When it comes to extras all players appreciate, the platform offers quite an interesting assortment of bonuses and promotions accompanied by races and tournaments. Let’s not forget to mention a valuable birthday bonus which can be claimed either on that very special day or in the next 7 days.
On top of these, DRIP Casino has an exclusive 4-tier rewards scheme where additional perks such as access to exclusive offers, personalized promos, expedited cashouts and similar can be expected.
A detail worth mentioning is that this brand operates under the Royal Partners affiliate group, which runs a couple of more casinos- Sol Casino, Jet Casino, Fresh Casino, IZZI Casino, Legzo Casino, and Starda Casino.
Registration and KYC
Our tester’s journey began on October 9, 2023. To register, he filled in a simple form, entering some basic info about himself.
The tester decided to complete ID verification at this stage, so to avoid potential delays later. He found the option under the “Profile” section. The tester submitted an image of his passport, a selfie with the passport, and a bank statement.
While uploading the documents, the tester also completed e-mail verification. Later, it turned out that a selfie with the passport wasn’t even necessary.
With regard to verification rules related to withdrawal:
“If the requested amount is equivalent to or exceeds 1,250 €, as well as in other cases that need validation, the Company shall perform an identification procedure, during which you shall send us a high-res copy or a digital photo of your ID document (the page with your photo) (passport, ID card, or other identity document). If you refilled your account using a credit card, you also need to send us photocopies of its front and back. […]”
Keep in mind that the first 6 and the last 4 digits of the card number must be clearly visible, while the remaining digits of the card number and the CVV/CVC code should be hidden. Such verification is usually carried out within 48 hours.
Having registered and supplied the documents for identity verification, the tester went on to add funds to his account. The option was under the “+” button, located in the upper right corner. He wanted to deposit EUR 200/ 0.007592 BTC.
A couple of minutes later, money appeared on his balance. The sum displayed in the cashier was EUR 199.94. This difference was the result of Bitcoin value fluctuation.
When it comes to available deposit methods, players can use Skrill, Neteller, Jeton, Binance Pay, Bank Card, a variety of cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Dogecoin, Tron, etc.), and a couple of other options, which vary based on the player’s country of residence. The minimum amount to replenish the balance is EUR 10 for all the available options, while the maximum differs.
According to the Terms of this casino (and many others, to note so), third-party deposits are not permitted. A player can fund the account using a payment option registered in his/her name only.
For deposits exceeding EUR 10,000, the operator has the right to request a source of funds confirmation.
As soon as money appeared on his real money balance, the tester immersed himself into the operator’s wealthy portfolio. His first port of call was Dia Del Mariachi Megaways, a colorful music-themed slot game delivered by All41 Studios.
Following this adventure, he checked out Gems Inferno Megaways by Red Tiger and Mice & Magic Wonder Spin by BGaming, the latter of which brought him a big win of EUR 28.50.
Buffalo’s Sun by Zillion Games was the next release on his list, after which he returned to Mice & Magic Wonder Spin.
Some of the games the tester tried to access displayed an “Error message”, but he quickly found something interesting to explore. He played Spiñata Grande by NetEnt and Big Wild Buffalo by Belatra.
During gameplay, the tester also verified his phone number via chat. As the verification code wasn’t arriving, he contacted the live chat agent. The casino staff called the tester via phone, but he was instructed not to answer that call. Instead, he was told to type in the last four digits of the number that was calling him in the live chat.
Although this particular step is not among the mandatory requirements, some operators require it, as an additional layer of safety and protection.
Having explored a variety of games, the tester decided to make a withdrawal request. The option was located in the same place as the “Deposit”, and he was presented with the following methods- bank card, Neteller, Jeton, Skrill, Binance Pay, and crypto.
The tester selected the same method as the one he opted for while funding the account, and typed in EUR 50.
Before typing in the desired amount of money, the tester also verified his BTC address via live chat.
A bit later the same day, the tester received his funds- EUR 50 / BTC 0.00192444.
Withdrawal options are more or less the same as the one for deposit. The minimum amount spans from EUR 10-25, depending on the specific method.
Daily withdrawal limits depend based on the loyalty ranking, and are determined as follows- EUR 4,000 for Origin and Smart, EUR 10,000 for Prime, and EUR 15,000 for Meta. As for the monthly maximum, the sum amounts to EUR 125,000. Unless specified otherwise, the casino effects payments no later than 24 hours after the cashout request was submitted. Provided that all conditions are met, jackpot winnings are paid out in full.
Players should know that in order to request a cashout, they must playthrough any active bonuses and extra spins on their balance or cancel them. Also, for the vast majority of countries, a deposit needs to be wagered once in casino games and when placing sports bets.
These are the exceptions:
- For Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, and India, the total amount of bets to wager a deposit depends on the user’s rank and amounts to 1–3X the deposit amount; a sports bet with a 3X wagering requirement is considered wagered at double time
- For India and Brazil, bets in Roulette, Baccarat, and Instant Games are counted as 20% of the bet amount for wagering purposes
The operator has the right to cancel the withdrawal until the WRs are met, or to withhold a 10% commission from the amount a consumer intends to deposit, to recover payout processing fees.
In case a consumer uses a risk-free strategy only to wager a deposit amount, “the Company has the right to demand that the user wager on Slots the total deposit amount used in cases described above or withhold a fee of up to 25% from the amount to be withdrawn by debiting a user’s balance.”
The full test was finalized within less than 24 hours, which is extremely fast, especially knowing that KYC was part of the process as well. DRIP Casino madeno mistakes in any of the important aspects, confirming that efficiency indeed is among its top virtues.
Two more casinos from this network were already put to the test, and one thing in common they have with this test is- no problems were detected. Jet Casino was investigated in December 2021, while Fresh Casino was under the microscope in September this year.
These are the results of the said tests:
- Testing Jet Casino- Is It a Curacao-Licensed Online Casino Players Can Trust?
- Fresh Casino Tested: Was Quick Withdrawal via AstroPay Written in the Stars?
