Though featuring an Australian theme, Belize-based TekHou5 Limited owns and operates Roobet. There is little information about the company online, and as far as we know, this is their only gaming site. One that opened its virtual doors in 2019 and has recorded over 400 million bets so far. It claims it is the fastest-growing Bitcoin casino, and it may be just that. Available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, it accepts only Bitcoin and Ethereum, and while it is weak on the promotional side of things, it boasts a library of close to one thousand games.
Roobet features a design-style and organizational structure that has become very well-established in the crypto gaming sphere. The use of unsaturated blues, along with colorful minimalistic illustrations, is easy on the eyes. Navigation is satisfactory, and you should move around swiftly if you have ever played at an online casino.
Registration takes less than twenty seconds, as all you need to provide is a username, password, and date of birth. Alternatively, you can sign in with your Google or Steam account. When you do, it is best to verify your email immediately and set up 2FA. If you do not, you will not be able to use the chat.
Once you are all done with that, sadly, you cannot go to the promotional page to explore the bonuses on offer, as there are none. Therefore, we suggest opening your cashier tab and completing some surveys for free play funds.
Games offered by Roobet
We can separate the Roobet game offer into three segments, modern slots, live games, and provably fair ones. In the slot section, players can locate 960 titles from 14 providers, including names such as Red Tiger Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Thunderkick, NetEnt, Elk, Pragmatic Play, and eight others. Pragmatic Play has the most slots with 229, while Play’n GO and NetEnt share the second spot with 155 apiece. You can sort the games in alphabetical order, by the provider, and by most popular. You may also search for a slot via the search function, or select one from the section of eight Top Picks.
The live section is a collection of seven game-show games from Evolution Gaming. These are Crazy Time, Lightning Roulette, Monopoly, Mega Ball, Lightning Dice, Dream Catcher, and Deal or No Deal.
In the provably fair category, you can find seven games. These are Blackjack, Baccarat, Mines, Dice, Roulette, a Crash game, and one called Towers. Experienced players are familiar with most of these. At the time of writing, Crash can provide payouts as high as 130x your bet. Mines is a Minesweeper-like game that can yield some fantastic payouts as well. However, the unique offering is Towers, which lets you set the level of difficulty as you attempt to work your way up. At each level, you pick a block, and if you choose wisely, you move up. You can cash out at any time or keep pushing your luck and go for higher rewards. When you set the game at the Hard difficulty level, the top prize becomes 5.1 BTC on a bet of 0.001 BTC.
An important thing to point out is that Roobet features a very high payout ratio, which stands at 98%, or 2% higher than other popular online casinos.
There is no Roobet mobile app, nor are there any chances that will see one any time soon. The site representative told us that they see no point in developing one at this time. Therefore, we accessed the Roobet mobile version to provide an assessment of the play-on-the-go experience.
Visiting the site via Chrome on an Android phone, we saw no issues. The mobile version is decent. Though, you may have to do a little scrolling to get to what you are after on the home page, which gets annoying. In your upper right, you get access to your account menu and options, while tapping the logo in the upper left will take you to the home page.
There seem to be seven slot games missing from the mobile version, but you get all seven Evolution Gaming game–show games. Overall, nothing should go wrong if you visit the site and play through a mobile browser. The experience is comparable to what you get on a desktop.
Deposits & Withdrawals
There is not a wealth of Roobet withdrawal and deposit options. The platform only allows the use of Bitcoin and Ethereum. There is no deposit limit for Bitcoin, but there is a 0.001 ETH minimum for Ethereum deposits. Bitcoin deposits require one confirmation, while Ethereum ones need three.
The minimum withdrawal amount is $10 in both Bitcoin and Ethereum. Note that there are some hefty fees in place for withdrawals at the time of writing but those fees vary according to network fees. All withdrawals get processed instantly. The only delay would be the transaction confirmation on the network’s side of things.
The site recommends apps such as Exodus, Cash App, Coinbase, or Blockchain to buy or exchange cryptos. You’ll have to verify your email before you make a withdrawal, and you may have to provide documentation that verifies your identity.
In your cashier tab, you can find a tipping option that allows you to send cryptos to other users. You can make your tip public, meaning it will appear in the chat, or it can be private, between the giver and recipient.
Roobet Bonuses & Promotions
As far as Roobet promotions go, the offer is deficient. There is no welcome bonus, no reload ones, no free faucet, and in general, very little in terms of promotions. The site does host social network giveaways, as you can find ones on Twitter with prize pools of around $100. You may get in on some rain in the chat, and Roobet has a decent referral program. If you join it, you get in on a net revenue sharing plan where you earn a percentage share of your referral’s total net revenue. Commissions get calculated and paid out monthly. There is no sub-referral program.
That aside, you can complete surveys to enjoy some free play, though do not do so while using a VPN, as you can run into trouble. If you are a Twitch streamer, you can add promo banners on your page for some perks, and Roo, the mascot, may drop some promo codes in your chat. If you add the code – Bitcointalk, in the promo option, you’ll get access to rakeback on all your bets.
Speaking of Bitcointalk, you may want to frequent the forum, and the Roobet thread, as there may be a promotion running there, from time to time. Competitions, raffles, or giveaways.
So, is there a Roobet VIP program? Yes. There are two loyalty systems in place, one is a lower-tier scheme titled RooWards, and there’s a VIP Club that offers perks after each session and straight cash bonuses. RooWards prioritizes wagering activity as well as a player’s overall losses for the week and month, allowing players to progress to a higher level by betting more. You achieve the first level by betting $1,500 with the site within a specific time frame, en route to a daily rakeback. As you bet $500 more, you’ll get a weekly cashback, and with another $1,000 bet, you’ll get a monthly one.
The platform is very secretive about the Roobet VIP Club. We tried to reach out and get some additional information, with little success. The staff told us that they are not allowed to disclose anything. We got the usual spiel that it is invite-only and that the platform monitors player activity, only allowing this privilege to the most active users. It rewards them by enhancing their experience. They did not disclose the requirements but said that once you qualify, a VIP manager will be in touch and that you’ll receive exclusive access to perks such as cash rewards, bonuses, and recharges.
Roobet Customer Support
Our analysis of the Roobet support options, as expected, starts with the Roobet live chat. You can access it through your account menu, under live support. If you intuitively click the speech icon in the lower right, you will pull out the group chat. The live chat window runs on Intercom, and after a one-minute wait, we got in touch with a representative who provided answers that were a few sentences long. He was fast with his replies and pleasant.
There’s no Roobet FAQ page, but the live support representative told us that they’re working on one as we speak, as the site does not feel complete without it. So, we’ll have to wait and see what they come up with on that front.
For more serious matters, you can establish Roobet contact through email at [email protected]. Note that the site reserves this option from complicated issues. Thus, they are upfront with the fact that you should expect a reply only on working days, during working hours.

Pros / Cons
- Close to 1,000 games
- 24/7 live chat option
- Weak promotions (on-site)
- No FAQ pages
- Only two supported cryptocurrencies
It comes time to render a verdict, and we remain slightly conflicted as to what it should be. Roobet has all the potential of a terrific crypto gaming site. It has a modern design that is trendy and competitive with what is on the market. It features an impressive game selection, including a massive library of advanced slots, some live game show games for variety, and provably fair ones. Customer support is decent and available 24/7, but that’s only enough to balance out its shortcomings. Its promotional offer is lacking, and it supports only two cryptos. A site of this magnitude needs and has to do more to boost these departments. That said, the platform remains popular, as it has quite the following on Twitter, and the number of bets made with it keeps rising. We would advise them to add competitions and more promos, but it seems like they are doing fine without our help.
