Curacao-based Pengwins N.V. owns and operates RollBit. It is the same company that is behind the CS: GO gambling site EZRage. RollBit used to be one as well. It first launched in early 2020 and received a makeover in March of 2021 when its 2.0 version when live. It now features only one provably fair game, a catalog of over one thousand slots, and close to two hundred live tables. RollBit accepts Bitcoin and Ethereum, and it boasts a robust VIP program while also frequently running Twitter free-play giveaways. We could not connect this site to the RollBit.io platform that was active in 2017. Given that Pengwins N.V. registered the RollBit.com domain back in 2014, a connection is possible.
RollBit uses the same dull unsaturated blue that a ton of popular Bitcoin casinos also utilize. Since it is so easy on the eyes, it is the preferred option for most modern online casinos. RollBits contracts it with a rich yellow used in its buttons and some white for its text. Navigation here is super-easy, as the site’s UX designers have looked to keep things clean and accessible. You do not get bombarded with a ton of options here.
Registration is easy. All you have to do is input a username, password, and email address. That is all. Alternatively, you can register using your Steam account if you have one. You do not need to verify your account before you start playing, but know that you will have to supply personal information before your first withdrawal.
Since there is no promo page on this site, we suggest that you explore their blog, as well as their social media presence. You can also converse with other players in the public chat. There should be at least one hundred players active at all times in this window, including several mods.
Games offered by RollBit
In the past, RollBit relied on the provably fair game X-Roulette to satisfy its players’ needs. In the 2.0 version, they teased with X-Crash, but enriched the site with slots, live, and RNG table games. It is far more diversified now.
When it comes to reel-spinners, RollBit is home to 1,676 titles from twenty-one providers. Among the companies that have products on this site, you will find names such as NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, Nolimit City, Big Time Gaming, Play’n Go, Thunderkick, Quickspin, and Wazdan. Note that, like with all gambling sites, NetEnt titles have strict region restrictions. So, if you plan on sticking to those, do your research before registration.
What we didn’t like about the game lobby is that the left-side menu divides the table games into the following categories: live casino, roulette, blackjack, and game shows. Yet, there is no RNG section. Naturally, the live tab is home to all of the dealer games, which number 205. The number also includes software versions of popular table games. All of the titles on the table page come from nine providers. These are Evolution, Platipus, Wazdan, BGaming, Absolutely Live Gaming, Belatra, Ezugi, Habanero, and Fugaso.
So, if you want to face-off against an algorithm in blackjack or roulette action, you will have to find these games by browsing or using the search function at the top of the page. Each one has a top picks segment that shows its most played games. For example, if you click on game shows, you will see that out of the 31 offered titles, Evolutions Crazy Time, Mega Ball, and Monopoly Live are the three most popular choices. The site also lets you create your list of favorites, and you can monitor other player’s activity or just that of the platform’s high-rollers.
There is no RollBit mobile app. The staff told us that they have no plans on developing a RollBit Android app or one for iOS users.
So, we had no choice but to test out the RollBit mobile version. We did so via Chrome on our Android phone. We liked what we saw on a mobile browser. Everything was readable and decently sized. You get a bottom navigation bar with a menu, search, public chat, and a support option.
You can access the cashier and account pages via icons in the top right. The few games that we tested loaded quickly. However, we did not like the fact that they get presented in a single column. It requires a lot of scrolling to get through a dozen titles, let alone more.
All in all, there isn’t too much to gripe about the mobile version. It is fast and well-organized. You can resize your desktop browser to a vertical rectangle to experience an almost identical version of the site to what you get on a smartphone.
Deposits & Withdrawals
As is usually the case with new crypto gambling platforms, at the start, most like to stick to established coins. Thus, currently, RollBit only provides two payment options, Bitcoin and Ethereum. Most players will frown at this, as these two have higher network fees than less-established cryptos. The site staff told us that they plan on adding other cryptocurrencies soon. Though, they aren’t sure which ones will become available.
To fund your account, you must click on the deposit icon in the top navigation bar. It will redirect you to the cashier window, where you will have to select either Bitcoin or Ethereum. There, you will get presented with a QR code, a wallet address, and a value calculator that converts dollars to coins. Note that there are fees for all transfers. You can see the withdrawal ones in the Bitcoin/Ethereum tab listed under network fee. You can place as many funds as you like in your account, but you will have to bet at least $100 before you can take any coins out of your casino balance.
According to EU guidelines on anti-money laundering (AML), RollBit enforces a three-step identity verification procedure. Step one entails that you fill out your name, date of birth, country of residence, and address. Once you deposit over $2,000, you will have to provide a photo of an ID next to a randomly generated six-digit number. After you pass the $5,000 milestone, RollBit will ask that you supply information regarding your source of income.
RollBit Bonuses & Promotions
Currently, there is no RollBit promotions page. However, the team is boasting that they are getting ready to launches the most intuitive crypto trading platform on the internet. We assume that it will be something similar to trading futures on an exchange.
Once the second version of the platform launched, RollBit credited every account that had wagered over $1,000 with $10. According to their blog, they gave away more than $100,000 via this promo. We talked to staff about a potential sign-up bonus, and they told us that one is not in the books yet. So, do not expect any deposit-matches here.
RollBit does feature coupon codes, which you can find on their Twitter page. These provide an on-site balance that ranges between $1 to $5. You can also get ahold of these codes by watching Twitch and YouTube streamers that promote this platform.
Inside your accounts page, there is a referrals section. In it, you can generate your affiliate codes, up to ten, which will earn you 10% of the house edge.
Is there a RollBit Vip program? Yes, there’s a leveling system here that contributes massively to the platform’s appeal. You advance through the Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Blood Diamond, and Vibranium tiers via your betting activity. The first five have five sub-levels each. So, there are five Bronze tiers. You need to bet $10,000 to unlock the rewards in the first one and $30,000 to claim what the fifth one has to offer. Blood Diamond and Vibranium have no sub-tiers. You need to bet a whopping $50 million to reach the first and a cool billion to hit the latter. Level-up bonuses are 12.5% of the house edge for the wagering required to move up.
The RollBit Rewards include an instant rakeback of 10% on all your bets.
Each day, at 00:00 UTC, the player that sits atop of the RollBit leaderboard gets pronounced as the RollBit Boss, claiming the site’s daily prize. So, what is the amount that comes with this title? It is $5,000, no strings attached.
The staff told us that they are looking to implement a cashback scheme in addition to the base rakeback. They plan on providing daily, weekly, and monthly cashback of around 15%.
RollBit Customer Support
As per our procedure, we kick things off by accessing the RollBit live chat. You can do so by clicking the headset icon in the lower right corner of your screen. The speech one in the upper right will pull open the public one. You can get help there as well, as moderators lurk answering questions in this community window. The live one runs on Intercom, and it informs you that you should receive a reply within a few minutes and that all answers get funneled to your email inbox. We typed in our opening question, and it took around three minutes before we received a reply. The representative we spoke to was courteous and informative. Right off the gate, we blasted him with three inquiries that he answered instantly. Thus, we closed the live chat satisfied.
What was funny about our support experience is that before using the live chat, we sent a message to RollBit email support at [email protected]. The same representative we spoke to in the chat window also replied to our email. However, he mixed some of the replies. Ones meant for our inbox arrived in the chat window. Nevertheless, he quickly and satisfactorily replied to both, so we cannot complain.
When initially writing this review, there was no RollBit FAQ section on the platform. They promised on adding one and guess what, they kept their word and you can now find answers to frequently asked questions. You should frequently check the site’s blog, as the team will look to enrich it with content that explains how things work here.
RollBit has a gaming license from Curacao master license holder, Gaming Curacao. If you are a regular BTCGOSU visitor, you know that we have said all that there is to say about the four Curacao master license holders. Gaming Curacao has been around since 1998, and according to most, they are the second-most-responsible regulator in Curacao. We do not know if that is of any significance to you.
Know that if any conflict of interest emerges from your use of this platform, per its gaming licenses, the laws of Curacao and its courts will have the final say. You should first seek to resolve your dispute by informally attempting to hash things out with the staff. If you are an EU user, you will benefit from mandatory legal provisions in your country of residents.
The site can suspend or terminate your account for whatever reason it sees fit without any prior notice.
Pros / Cons
- Vast slot library
- Terrific VIP program
- Quality live support
- No FAQ page
- Only two accepted cryptocurrencies
The RollBit 2.0 version launched recently, and by all accounts, the site will look to add new features soon. For instance, the settings page in your account tab is currently empty. You cannot even set-up 2FA yet. Thus, it will take some time before the staff iron out all the kinks. However, as things stand now, there is potential here. The RollBit game library is vast, and its VIP program is enticing. Once the daily/weekly/monthly cashback gets added to it, it will grow even more alluring.
That said, we cannot neglect to mention that the site currently only accepts two cryptos. In a few months, things may look very different when trading goes live, and more coins become available. For now, this is a promising platform that you should consider, but let us follow its blog and see how it develops. If you plan on becoming a RollBit patron, make sure you keep an eye on those Twitter coupon codes. You never want to say no to free-playing funds.
