This is my review of 888starz Casino.
During my online casino travels, I have seen all kinds of brands with all kinds of weird and wacky features. Do not get me wrong, though, as most casinos are actually pretty much cut from the same cloth and do not necessarily offer anything out of the ordinary! Still, every now and then you will run into a brand that wants to do things differently than all the rest. 888starz Casino might just be one of these casinos!
888starz calls itself an “iGaming Mining Platform,” which is something that initially left me raising my eyebrows. In this review, however, we will dive deeper into what this could mean and what makes 888starz special. What I can tell you right now, though, is that this casino was launched in 2020 by AZIMUTONE LIMITED and operates under the Antillephone license.
Looks and feel of 888starz Casino
888starz has opted to go with a few pretty interesting design choices. Once you arrive at the site, you are immediately flooded with all kinds of information and links on your screen. In addition to the typical Sports, Live Casino, Esports, Poker, and Slots tabs, you can also see links for sports match statistics, payments, and many other things. While this is probably a great thing for those already familiar with the site, new players might find the user interface a bit perplexing and cluttered.
The good thing about 888starz Casino’s looks and feel is that you can easily filter games based on multiple categories and a long list of providers. Features such as these help tremendously in letting you find exactly what you are looking for!
Bonuses and rewards
The same messiness of the 888starz Casino website also applies to the 888starz bonus section. Instead of making things simple, this section is filled with tons of text, which I do not think is befitting of a modern online casino brand. People nowadays are accustomed to just signing up, redeeming bonuses, and starting their gameplay straight away—not so much reading texts and navigating their way through all kinds of rules.
Still, I guess there is indeed value in online casinos coming up with novel concepts that need to be explained beforehand. On top of 888starz Casino’s 100% first deposit bonus, this brand also lets you mine a cryptocurrency called 888 tokens. This so-called mining is done each time that you place bets—whether your bets win or lose. It is a rather complex system, but your token value basically fluctuates as people win and lose at the casino. The more people play at the casino, the more your tokens’ value rises. In other words, the casino’s success slowly becomes its loyal customers’ success and can lead to some rather stellar gains in the process.
(I do not know if I managed to explain the 888starz cryptosystem well enough or if I got the perfect grasp of it, but that is how it seems to work. At this time, though, I cannot say too much about how easy it is to make a buck with it!)
The 888starz slots selection is a big one. There are plenty of games from providers such as Pragmatic Play, Betsoft, Quickspin, ELK Studios, Thunderkick, and many others. There are a few notable omissions, however, with NetEnt, Microgaming, Play’n GO, Push Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Red Tiger, and Nolimit City missing from the boat…
888starz also focuses on sports betting, live casino gaming, and even poker. On the live casino side of the spectrum, it is Evolution Gaming leading the charge with its dozens of table games, followed by Ezugi, Pragmatic Play, Vivo Gaming, and more.
Safety and security
888starz Casino does not have a license from inside of Europe, which is a shame. Instead, people will have to play under the tutelage of Antillephone. While this license is hardly a guarantee of an online casino’s honesty, I think 888starz should be pretty trustworthy. Having said that, a cryptocurrency-focused long-term casino such as this could do with even better, European licensing.
Banking options at 888starz Casino
888starz Casino allows customers to use Visa, Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard as well as tens of cryptocurrencies to fund their accounts. Whether you deal in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Dash, Ethereum, Monero, ZCash, DigiByte, Tron or any of the other cryptos, this is easily the most crypto-friendly online casino that I have ever seen.
888starz withdrawals tend to be quite quick across the board with most payments being processed in around 15 minutes!
Contacting 888starz customer support can be done by clicking on the live chat icon found in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. Support is open 24/7 and it only took seconds for an agent to answer my request.
My experience at 888starz Casino
888starz Casino is unlike your average online casino brand. Even though things might not look all that slick, in the beginning, it is what lies under the hood of the car that is important. Those interested in cryptocurrencies and acquiring some for themselves will undoubtedly feel right at home here. Those looking for a more simple and traditional casino experience, on the other hand, are recommended to look somewhere else.
