It's nice to play at a new online casino but you always need to be vigilant to make sure it's not a scam. If a regular fiat currency online casino steals your money, you always have the option of phoning your credit card company to reverse the charges. If you send bitcoin to a scammy website then you are never going to get it back. To avoid this happening, there are a few things I always do before I play at a bitcoin casino.... Check if there are reviews for this bitcoin casino If you do a Google search for "casino name review" and you don't get at least 20 results then alarm bells should be ringing. If affiliate websites aren't reviewing the casino then that probably means they have already figured out it is a little bit dodgy. Do a Google search for "casino name scam" It's highly unlikely that you are the first person to stumble upon this new btc casino. Chances are many other people have had money stolen and have already left furious forums posts warning other users to avoid playing there. Ask yourself if the bonuses and promotions are too good to be true Bitcoin gambling scams will try anything to persuade you to send money to their bitcoin wallet and this includes offering ridiculously generous sign-up bonuses and loyalty programs. Most bitcoin casinos offer anything up to 1 BTC as a deposit bonus. Beware of anyone offering significantly more than that.
