Bitstarz Casino Review

Review last updated - November 2020.

OVERVIEW | 5.56/10


Bitstarz casino are a developing brand licensed in Curacao. They are operated by Dama N.V. They provide a limited range of games from: Betsoft, Amatic, Microgaming, Ezugi and SoftSwiss.

TRUSTWORTHINESS | 0/10


We have significant concerns about many different aspects of the Bitstarz businesses.

Complaints managed by this service have highlighted player verification policies that are in our opinion completely substandard and fail to provide any realistic barrier to deter money laundering or the funding or terrorist organisations.

Beyond this, we feel that their player registration process is intentionally structured in a manner that will result in players from illegal markets registering and playing with Bitstarz. The operator then appears to be engaging free rolling policies, where if these players lose, they turn a blind eye to the infractions, but if the player wins significantly they then point to their terms of use prohibiting players from that jurisdiction and void the win.

We have also found this operator's approach to responsible gambling to be what we consider to be lax, using ambiguous language, failing to hold to the standards they set and making sub-standard efforts to prevent further access to gaming services.

We have identified this operator actively engaging strategies to try and encourage self-excluded players to revoke their exclusion. Not only is this entirely contrary to any reasonable definition of a 'responsible gambling' policy, it is also contrary to the information they had published on their site at the time, that stated that self-exclusions could not be revoked during the selected exclusion period.

Comp Points


It does not appear that Bitstarz Casino provide any sort of comp points program for all players.

Closing Thoughts


What we've seen of the Bitstarz operation via management of player complaints has left us very uncomfortable with this operator's practices. In our opinion they are intentionally manipulating their players to allow them to claim that they are not accepting US players, while turning a blind eye to the US traffic they are receiving. This is made worse by then blaming the player so that they can retain player losses while refusing to play wins. And all of this lies on top of security processes that are totally inadequate to ensuring that their business does not facilitate criminal activities on the part of other parties. There is no part of this combination that we'd recommend any player engage with.
