Satoshidice Casino Review

SatoshiDice says they’re the original bitcoin dice game.

But is that reason enough to join?

McDonald’s was one of the first fast food burger chains, but you won’t catch me eating there. Their food is disgusting, makes me feel bloated and miserable for the next 24 hours. I’ve named the day after the purge.

So you tell me – does originality matter?

Heck no!

What matters is this:

  • They have provably fair games.
  • They’re not going to steal your money.
  • SatoshiDice pays you fast.
  • You can get free bitcoin or match bonus offers.
  • Other people like them.

So… how many boxes does SatoshiDice check off?

I’ll give you my opinion in a sec.

But, for now, we’re going to cover each of these points in more detail throughout our review.

Provably Fair Gaming W/Fast Payouts

SatoshiDice DOES offer provably fair games.

The game itself is simple.

Just think of a die with 65,536 faces (if you can). You choose a number, throw the die and if you roll smaller than the number you chose, you win. Otherwise you lose.

The probability of rolling a smaller number will determine how much you win (similar to how Primedice does things).

They DO limit how much you bet per roll, which is standard. They have to have players backing the other side of the bets. But you can make multiple bets per transaction. You can do this to double down on your number or to hedge your bet.

Bets (and wins) are figured out and returned to you within 30 seconds in most cases.


Satoshidice: the Pros & Cons

Let’s look at some reasons why SatoshiDice is a good choice:

  • They’ve been in business since 2012. That in itself doesn’t mean much. But compared to other platforms they’ve been around a long time. And other players like them. That says a lot.
  • No account is needed. Just connect your bitcoin wallet – you’ll spend and receive money directly to your account.
  • They have fast payouts – you can receive your funds in as quickly as 30 seconds.
  • They support 10 languages – English, Chinese, Spanish, Mexican, Russian, Swedish, German, French, Brazilian and Portuguese.
  • Their platform is mobile-responsive.

There are some downsides, too:

  • They don’t accept US players.
  • Complaints started to surface after their sale in 2013.
  • A small 0.0001 transaction fee is subtracted from the payment amount win or lose.
  • They offer no promotions.

Verdict

So… How Many Boxes Does Satoshidice Check Off?

They appear to be a simple, yet solid platform.

The only problem that sticks out for me are the complaints posted to Reddit and bitcoin forums following their sale.

Some of the complaints included:

==> Players not receiving their funds after they made a deposit.

==> Players not receiving their winnings.

==> Players getting suckered in with bonuses (that didn’t back out for them).

==> Players having their accounts closed and winnings confiscated because the way they were playing mimicked another account (which, funnily enough, the user failed to mention in his original complaint).

It’s hard to know what to believe. Many complaints aren’t legit, but instead are from mad players that spewed their life savings on a coin flip.

And when you consider that SatoshiDice hasn’t offered promotions (ever, to the best of my knowledge) – and it’s clear that some of these claims are bogus.

The bottom line – I see no reason to believe these claims until more substantial proof surfaces. With that being said you can assume that they’ll pay you your winnings (and not steal it).

If my basic math skills serve me, they check 4/5 boxes. The only things they don’t offer are promotions. But that comes at no surprise since many bitcoin platforms pass on offering promotions on the account that their house edge is so low already.

A 4/5 gives them an 80% or B-. But I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and bump them to a B.

SatoshiDice is a decent platform, I’ll give them that. But since they don’t accept Americans nor do they have any promotions, I recommend your first stop for bitcoin dice be Primedice.

Then you can head to SatoshiDice.
