Aurora Tech N.V. owns and operates EarnBet. As far as we can tell, this is the only online casino that this company runs. Formerly known as EOSBet, and rebranded in October of 2019 as EarnBet, this site first launched in August of 2018 as the first decentralized casino on the WAX blockchain. Today, the platform allows the use of a dozen cryptocurrencies, provides investment opportunities, features five provably fair games, and targets players from Asia by making the site interface available in Cantonese and Korean.
The site’s design is more than decent. It features shades of unsaturated blues that contrast nicely with saturated reds and gold colors. Due to its limited content, navigation here is easy, and you can access the games via the drop-down menu in the top left. However, you do not have a profile page and only have a few account options, which is disappointing.
To register, you’ll have to click the Sign-Up button situated at the top right of your screen. Once you do, you’ll have to go through a two-step registration process that involves you inputting your username, password, email address, and you writing down your 24 recovery words.
After you create your account, you should explore the FAQ page to learn how everything works or set your currency to fun-play funds via the drop-down menu in the top navigation bar. If you do the latter, you can test the games for free.
Games offered by EarnBet Casino
The EarnBet game offer consists of five provably fair games. Dice, Blackjack, Baccarat, Crash, and Hilo. They all are propriety titles that feature minimalistic graphics and simple gameplay. If you have ever spent time at a few crypto casinos, then you’ve likely come across each of these. Dice is your standard crypto dice available at most crypto gambling sites. You set a number from two to ninety-six, and you bet if you will roll over or under that number. Blackjack and baccarat are digital variations of the casino classics, and they share the same betting interface. In Crash, a multiplier grows, which can crash at any time. Your job is to cash-out before it does. Hilo is a card game where you predict if the next card coming is going to be higher or lower than the previous one.
Blackjack has the lowest house edge at 0.5%. Baccarat has the second-lowest house edge at 1.06%, while the remaining three games all have a 1.5% edge. They all feature intricate auto-bet functions and easy-to-understand guides, which you can access by clicking the How to Play button at the top of the page. It will tell you the minimum bet on each game and its maximum win potential.
You can view the site activity on a specific game via a table under each one’s interface, and you can create a custom seed and verify the randomness of each result on any of the five gaming options.
There is no EarnBet mobile app. So, do not go Googling for one. We tried to ask the staff if there are plans for one in the future, but they weren’t very responsive regarding this matter.
We opened the EarnBet mobile version via our Android phone (Android Pie) through Chrome, and quite frankly, we loved what we saw. If you want to see what the platform looks like when you access it via a mobile browser, resize your desktop window to the appropriate ratio.
Though the site was slightly slow to load at first, once it opened up, it was smooth sailing from there. Everything is the right size, and all the games loaded quickly. One minor gripe is that when you play blackjack or baccarat, some of the chips cut-off the screen, so you have to swipe with your finger to get them in view. However, this is a minor inconvenience. All in all, if the mobile version works this well on other phones, we see no reason for an EarnBet app any time soon.
Deposits & Withdrawals
EarnBet Casino lets you use a wide range of cryptocurrencies to fund your gambling journey on this platform. Know that there are no deposit limits here, and you can deposit using WAX and BET tokens, more on that later. The list of available cryptos is as follows:
- Bitcoin Cash
There is no maximum withdrawal amount for any of the listed cryptocurrencies, and their minimum limits are the following: 0.001 BTC, 0.003 BCH, 0.05 BNB, 0.005 ETH, 0.05 EOS, 0.01 LTC, 1 LINK, 21 XRP, 10 USDT, 50 TRX, 10 DAI, and 10 USDC.
EarnBet does not charge any fees. You only pay the blockchain ones. When you make a withdrawal, this fee will go to the blockchain and not the site.
You will likely have to submit KYC documents upon a withdrawal. To prevent money laundering, you will have to bet your deposit at least once before you can make a withdrawal. The site processes all withdrawals instantly. The rest depends on the blockchain.
You can have only one pending withdrawal per crypto at a time. Also, you can only make one withdrawal request within 24 hours.
EarnBet Casino Bonuses & Promotions
When it comes to EarnBet promotions, the offer here is a mix of three EarnBet staples and other offers that come and go. The platform does not run many promotions at the same time, but aside from the Sign-Up Bonus, the Crypto Jackpot, and the leaderboard challenges, it often features giveaways and event-specific deals.
Since we mention the EarnBet Sign-Up Bonus first, we’ll open with it. It provides $50 in BTC for free to anyone that registers an account, deposits at least $100, and uses the EarnBet bonus code – safe. The offer comes with an x50 wagering requirement for all games except for blackjack, which has an x167 requirement.
The Crypto Millionaire Maker is a jackpot that you can win by rolling 7,777,777 and on a bet over 0.000001 BTC. The site will charge you a fee of 0.00002 BTC for entering this promotion.
The leaderboard challenges are weekly betting races. For every $1 bet here, on any game, you receive one point. The more you bet, the more points you get, and the faster you move up the board standing. The top 50 bettors by volume split the prize pool. Every week, EarnBet looks to give away $5,000.
The promotions that come and go usually include players having to retweet a post from the platform’s Twitter account or join the Telegram group. The prizes in these promotions range from gift cards to electronic gadgets, such as iPhones and Android devices.
You can also invest here by owning BET tokens, which will make you eligible to receive a portion of the casino’s revenues. Your share of the profits calculates as follows: casino profit (50% of revenue) / total amount of stakepoints * your stakepoints. If your portion of the dividend is higher than the lowest decimal of a coin, you can claim that amount each month.
The site also has an affiliate program, which will earn you a commission of 0.1% for all the bets made by your referrals.
There is no classic EarnBet VIP program. No loyalty schemes the likes available at other sites. Though, the previously mentioned investing opportunities, via Bet Tokens, may produce benefits associated with a loyalty system. Bet Tokens can get you site perks, such as house edge reduction.
You can buy BET tokens on exchanges like Uniswap, P2PB2B, Newdex, Hotbit, or Binance DEX, or you can play the games on the site to earn them. The platform is giving away tokens at a rate of one for every 0.02 BTC wagered. If you stake your tokens, you earn staking points. You can choose to lock them for one day, seven days, thirty days, ninety days, and one, two, or five years. The longer you lock up your tokens, the more points you get. If you stake them for five years, you’ll get x8.88 points. The more staking points you have, the lower the game’s house edge gets. Also, the more stake points you have, the more dividends you receive.
EarnBet Casino Customer Support
Our EarnBet support review, as always, begins with our analysis of the EarnBet live chat. There are two icons in either lower corner of the site that open chat panels. The left one is for support, and the one on the right is for the public chat. We click the headset one on the left, and we had to enter our username, email, and question to submit an inquiry. We got a response immediately. However, the representative we spoke to did not seem to have in-depth knowledge of the iGaming sphere. When he couldn’t respond to one of our questions, he turned it into a support ticket, and we got a notification about it in our inbox. We didn’t like that if you minimize the chat window, you get no visual alert regarding a chat response.
The platform encourages you to reach out via social media for help. You can join a Telegram group, post in a Reddit thread, or tweet to the staff. If you are old-fashioned like us, you can reach out to the EarnBet email support by sending a message at – [email protected]. We did, and we got a detailed reply within one hour, even though the live chat representative told us that we should expect a response within one business day.
On the subject of an EarnBet FAQ page, we can say that the site boasts a decent one. It features 41 FAQs that divide into seven categories. These are General, Account, Deposit/Withdraw, Games, Altcoins, Issues, and Contact. A decent amount of thought has gone into answering every question on this page, and you should consult it before trying to establishing EarnBet contact.
You may try your luck with the public chat if you need assistance in a bind, but from our experience, it seems pretty much dead.
Aurora Tech N.V., the company that runs EarnBet, does so under a Gaming Curacao license. Gaming Curacao is one of the four Curacao master license holders, and it makes efforts to ensure that its licensees are operating under the law. That should go without saying, yet sadly, it isn’t always the case with the other master license holders. Gaming Curacao has been around since 1998, and though their licenses are easy to get, it performs yearly audits on all of its operators. So, while not perfect, a Curacao Gaming license is not a terrible one to have.
EarnBet uses advanced encryption with an RSA Key (2048 Bits), with a certificate from Go Daddy – G2, to protect all data. Once you enter information on the site, it gets stored in an encrypted, password-protected database residing in a secure network behind firewall software. EarnBet automatically collects data from your use of its service, and it may receive information from third-party vendors. It will share this information if a government institution requires it.
Do not create multiple accounts here, because if the platform discovers their existence, you will forfeit anything that you got during the duplicate account’s lifecycle. Know that EarnBet can review your account at any time and can cancel and remove any bonus, and may refuse a withdrawal claim in case of fraud. In such a case, it will suspend your account and not process the payment. It can also carry out verification procedures for any level of withdrawals.
Your use of the service falls under the umbrella of Curacao laws. By playing here, you agree that in the case of a dispute, such a process will transpire under the jurisdiction of Curacao courts and their arbitration rules.
EarnBet provides you with 24 recovery words, which help you recover your funds if you lose access to your computer/device.
Pros / Cons
- A dozen supported cryptocurrencies
- Investment options

To sum up, EarnBet is the first decentralized crypto gaming site. If you decide to make it your gambling home, you can play any of its five games using a dozen cryptocurrencies. Before spending money, you can test them out via free-play funds. Safety should not be an issue, as the site follows high-security protocols that protect your data and guard your transactions in the most efficient manner possible. While our live chat experience was not terrific, the email support proved excellent, as did the platform’s mobile version. EarnBet BET Tokens are a big thing here, and by attaining them, you can enjoy perks and receive dividends. Promotion-wise the offer here is respectable, so if you crave simple crypto-gambling without much variety on hand, check out EarnBet. We hear an update is on the way.
