7BitCasino looks and feels like a contemporary Bitcoin casino, from its customised graphics that dominate each screen, friendly and easy-to-read access to FAQ and terms and conditions, without too much noise and a screen that isn’t too busy, although each new page takes several seconds to load.
When it does, though, it’s immediately attractive, with a friendly support staff and an introduction addressed from the CEO when you sign up, so those are all good signs for a casino. The sign-up does need to be fixed, as you’re not redirected after you submit the pop-up registration form, instead the form screen appears stuck. Check your e-mail to confirm your account and this issue goes away, however.
Games-wise, there is an obvious focus on slots, with slot-inspired graphics peppering almost the entire website.
The main design drawback is the default screen resolution, which seems to be built for a height of 800 pixels, meaning that most modern netbook and notebook users will have to scroll down a little to see the full graphic of the screen. Some websites have an auto-detect feature that adjust to fit screens, so perhaps that little fix might take away that annoying little screen cut-off at the bottom.
Unique, focused design. Information is easily accessible.
Instant play on most games with live updates of winning slot spins and Jackpot totals.
Playable on mobile browsers.
No country restrictions (not easy for a licensed casino!)
House edge not revealed (though has basic provably fair mechanism).
Single-page designs don’t show fully on screens with less than 800 pixels height.
No phone support.
Low wager contributions from non-video slot games.
Deposits and Withdrawals
You can choose to deposit in eight different ways: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Skrill, Neteller, Cubits, Bitcoin and Paysafe. One big downside is the deposit fees, which is at 2.5% for most of the options except Cubits (0.5%) and direct Bitcoin payment (0%). When you consider that the minimum deposit is EUR 10, that’s at least EUR0.25 cents per deposit when using fiat. In addition, fees may be charged if you do not wager your deposits 3x or more.
Luckily, there are no fees for withdrawals, which start at a minimum of EUR10.
Most deposits and withdrawals happen instantly, in the case of bitcoin after 1 confirmation of deposit. Be prepared to be asked for verification, especially for withdrawals of more than EUR 1,000.
The slots emphasis is obvious when clicking on the All Games option takes you to a page displaying some of their featured slots games, with categories alphabetically ordered by the providers which include Amatic, Betsoft, SoftSwiss, Ezugi and Habanero. The same page shows current Jackpot totals and a live update of winning spins on the left, as well as a current BTC price – a very simple yet overlooked feature for Bitcoin casinos.
A top menu also shows its other game categories: Hits, Tables, Jackpot Games and Live. Apart from classic table games, their other titles also look quite unique, with titles such as Scratcherz, Golden Joker Dice, Scratch Dice and is plugged into external dice game Pocket Dice. The Live Games selection is not too shabby, with 18 tables to choose from such as Keno, Knock Out Baccarat and Blackjack HD.
7BitCasino has a good range of video slots that includes popular versions featuring Poker Pyramid and Multi-Hand variants such as Deuces Wild, All American and Joker Poker.
New players get a Welcome Package on a minimum deposit of EUR 20 or BTC 0.05:

After that, you can take advantage of a Monday 25% Deposit Bonus, Wednesday up to 100 Free Spins Bonus and Weekend up to 10% Cashback Bonus.
While the 40x bonus wager requirements is industry standard, the 5% wager from contribution of games other than video slots (which is 100%), is not.
