Here is my experience gambling with cryptocurrency on some of the Top Rated Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency provably fair online Casinos.
First I Joined 4 of The Top “Provably Fair” Online Bitcoin Casinos
In There Like Swimwear
Opening an account took me less than 5 minutes. First, I transferred some Bitcoin & Ethereum over to each Casino and funded each one. In total, I transferred approximately 4K in crypto split between the 4 Casinos. With my luck and gambling history, I was prepared to lose it all should luck not be on my side.
Below you’ll find my experience betting bitcoin and trying my luck at the Top 4 Bitcoin Casinos. At each Casino I list the games I tried, a description of the game from the game developers, a summary of my opinion on the game experience and my overall win/loss playing each one.
Again, this is my experience having an extremely lucky day and not losing money like I seem to do the majority of the time. Choose to believe it or not, this is the true story of one extremely lucky day, ending with me winning some serious cash (in BTC).
Let’s Get This Started
I decided to start at Betchain. The first game that caught my eye was 2 Million B.C., so I figured this would be as good as any place to begin.
2 Million Years Ago in a land before time the earth sat perfectly still until.. Women. Wanted. Diamonds. Now there’s only one man determined enough and brave enough to take a journey of epic proportions.
There’s some big fucking pre-historic cat thing, a bee that’s buzzing around and some other confusing shit. Some people love this slot game, but I wasn’t impressed. Graphics were great, but for me that was about it. I wasted about 15 minutes of my day and lost some money.
I’ll offer them a jackpot they can’t refuse… The Infamous words spoken by The Slotfather, the secret underworld Boss of all slots, big and small. The one man that holds all the strings, controlling an organized syndicate of slots stretching across the city and beyond… that man is The Slotfather.
This game is decent at best. Great graphics, including a couple fun bonus reels where “The Slotfather” opens up his briefcase to welcome you to the family. The Bonus reels load slow and although the game has promise, it lacks some of the exciting bonus reels that could easily have been added for a more fun user experience.
The one cool part of this game was during one of the bonus reels the Slotfather allows you to set up your criminal empire by selecting property. I won a couple decent bonuses, but overall wasted approximately 30 minutes of my life and lost money.
AMERICAN BLACKJACK/BLACKJACK SURRENDER
Up next, I decided to hit the Blackjack tables, where I’ve been known to not only suck, but also have earned a reputation for handing over hefty amounts of cash. Seriously, if you see me in Vegas… sit next to me. You’ll win. At best, I bring some decent jokes to the table. That’s about it.
It’s blackjack. I played both “American Blackjack” and “Blackjack Surrender.” Blackjack Surrender was my favorite. This one offered the best user experience in my opinion, the fastest loading time and having the option to surrender is always good when the dealer has you beat. I lost $100 playing American Blackjack and won $350 with Blackjack Surrender
After playing blackjack, the next Slot game that caught my eye was Slots Angels.
This Slot game kicks ass. Seriously, this one was a lot of fun. I’m sure the fact that I went on a winning streak and actually made some money didn’t hurt, but the gameplay on this one was really cool.
There were a ton of bonuses, instant prizes, progressive and standard jackpots as well as payout multipliers. This was hands down one of the best slots games I’ve ever played. In the small amount of time I spent playing this one, I hit a few bonuses, one Big Bonus and I actually ended up leaving with more BTC than I started. Now that shit was s pretty cool.
Betchain Starting Amount: 1K
Net Result: -$230
Next I headed over to FortuneJack. This Casino is pretty badass. This Casino boasts a huge selection of games, including Jackpot & Progressive Jackpot Bitcoin Slots as well as a huge selection of interactive and 3D Slot games.
Personally, I am becoming a big fan of the BetSoft games, and I wasn’t disappointed by Fortunejack’s selection. They even had a large selection of new Slot games I hadn’t ever seen before. In addition to having a monstrous collection of different Bitcoin Slots, FortuneJack also offers sports betting,
Hit the casinos – and their very different personalities are all part of this interesting adventure on which you can win prizes and play some fantastic bonus games including Las Vegas Wilds, Police Car Scatters, the Money Wheel Bonus, the Bonus Round, and Double-Up Feature.
Despite sounding expensive, this slot game certainly doesn’t have to be and there are 30 different bet-levels and coins value combinations to choose from, with stakes from as little as 0.5 coins per spin.
This game looks amazing, with 3D graphics and 2 ‘hostesses’ floating either side of the reels in 3D rendering. You can play this game in 2 different modes. If you choose to play as the ‘Good Girl’, you’ll get regular small wins.
If you instead choose the ‘Bad Girl’, you will get fewer wins – though they will be larger (higher variance play). You can also simply double your lines and play both sides together
Played both sides and enjoyed this one. Hit a bonus reel as a good girl and as a bad girl. The bad girl paid out higher but I seemed to win more frequently (in smaller amounts) as a good girl. Feels absolutely ridiculous writing that. Left with more money than I started with.
An innovative Day/Night cycle switches up gameplay and allow players to experience what life is like for the people who live in the town.
During the day, the Ogre is awake and active while the townsfolk sleep. And it’s no wonder, as the Ogre will occasionally smash stone symbols, offering extra rewards! Once night falls, the Ogre will drift to sleep and the townsfolk emerge from their stone homes.
Higher payouts aren’t the only benefit of night mode: the Joker emerges as well and brings with him merriment and 2x WILD WINS!
FortuneJack Starting Amount: 1K
Net Result: +350
After this I decided to give mBit a fair shake. The first thing I was impressed with was the selection of games. With so many options, it took me a minute to decide what to play first. I decided to click on the Jackpot games because having the ability to win the Jackpot, or at least having a progressive Jackpot are usually the only Bitcoin slot games that interest me. The first game that caught my eye was Greedy Goblins.
Funny antics, a progressive jackpot and familiar characters, this new addition is a humorous trip into a magical forest full of winnings
This game was pretty fun. I actually enjoyed playing it and spent a good 30 minutes playing. Good graphics, fun bonuses and cool little bonus rounds that take you into the forrest for a chance to win big bonuses. I hit on more than one.
A bunch of gangsta primates are in charge of this disaster and the whole action is brought to life by this slot video game. This is awesome. The graphics are insane, it’s a LIVE game and you get to make decisions that affect the outcome in the game.
This is seriously badass. I played this one for over an hour easily and I’ll be back for more. Win or lose, this game is awesome and I could also see this being slightly addicting. What a badass game.
Then, against my better judgement, I headed back over to the Blackjack tables
Decided to let my hair down a bit and went with the Blackjack Surrender HR (Highroller) I don’t usually fall into “highroller” status so I immediately felt like a baller. Deals were quick, the gameplay wasn’t slow and never froze and I immediately lost more than I won during the 1st 30 minutes.
Feeling like a true highroller, I decided YOLO and increased my bet amounts and finished with one hell of a win streak. I even walked away while I was up. I guess there’s a first time for everything. I won big.
mBit Starting Amount: 1K
Net Result: +4.5K
Next I tried More Gold Diggin’ which is a lot of fun. I don’t know a reason I selected this game other than the beard on the little guy and the squirrel/beaver/gopher thing looked very friendly.
Take on the ancient Greek gods in this rather serious themed game for your chance to win big. The max coin win is a cool 1,000, but playing in BTC – or any other crypto for that matter – can quickly bump up the value of that max win.
I didn’t get what all the hype was about. This game was pretty boring. Lost money and didn’t enjoy playing.
Bison Trail Slot started out life at BitStarz as an exclusive game, where it quickly became popular for its cow – or should we say bison – wrangling fun. There are big wins on offer to the tune of 300x your original stake, and with an epic free spins bonus game.
Play over 5 reels with 1024 ways to win, the wins come thick and fast when you start spinning the reels. So saddle up cowboy, it’s time to wrangle some buffalo to feed the family. I hit several bonuses including one BIG WIN. Now that’s what Im talking about!
BitStarz Starting Amount: 1K
Net Result: +2.4K
Already up big I decided to gamble some more, knowing it was a bad idea. After reading several reviews from top sportsbetting site independent testing and ranking services like Bitcoin Sports Betting Guide, and Top Online Bitcoin Casinos & Sportsbooks. Based on their reviews I decided to then place my action with Nitrogen Sports.
Seeing that this wasn’t my own money I was willing to take on more risk than usual. So I looked at the oddsmakers riskiest bets and decided to bet around half of my earnings from the day. The game on that night was the Houston Astros vs the Detroit Tigers. I don’t even watch baseball. The Tigers were +550 Underdogs so I took the action expecting to lose it all. I forgot about it and went home for the day.
The next day I arrived to an office party. The Astros lost. Holy shit.. I didn’t even know how to calculate what that meant. I bet $4000 on the Tigers. One of my co-workers greeted me with one of the most uncomfortable man hugs I’ve ever received. I was informed the payout on the $4000 bet was $26,000.
I’ve never come close to winning anything near that amount, and haven’t since. But for that one fleeting moment, I was King. Of course I was quickly brought back to reality when my boss called me into the office. I knew what he was calling me in for. Because I used his money to fund the 4 Casinos I had agreed to giving up 50% of anything won before starting. I walked away with $16,510.00. Thats almost half of what I make in a year.
My fiancee and I put down payments on new cars (ours were embarrassingly bad) and put the rest into savings. I will forever be a Detroit Tigers fan, that much I can promise.
Bet on Detroit Tigers +$26,000
50% (My share) = $16,510.00

Legendary Pelé NFT Set to Drop on Ethernity May 8
[Press Release – Los Angeles, California, 8th May, 2021]
Iconic Brazilian footballer Pelé will be immortalized in NFT form on May 8.
The legendary striker, named FIFA World Player of the Century, is getting the tokenized treatment with the release of a licensed aNFT – authenticated non-fungible token – exclusively on the Ethernity Chain at 12pm EST.
The digital presentation includes “THE KING OF FOOTBALL,” an immersive video tracing the player’s humble origins on the streets of Brazil to a packed stadium witnessing his brilliance. The eponymous “Pelé” aNFT, meanwhile, is represented by a hyper-realistic digital bronze bust of the star in his heyday.
As part of the Pelé aNFT collection, Ethernity will be releasing multi-pack trading cards that make a nod to the player’s Panini trading cards of the past.
Ethernity’s special digital trading cards include “Gilded Bicycle Pelé,” which showcases the player executing his signature bicycle kick. The limited edition cards will be part of the Ethernity Cards and Packs Collection launching this summer, 2021.
90% of aNFT sales will go to The Pelé Foundation, a charitable organization that strives to empower young people facing poverty around the world.
Ethernity’s recent Muhammad Ali aNFT auction, which raised over $550,000, also resulted in a significant donation being made to the Muhammad Ali Foundation.
Ethernity is exploring applications for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) within the context of art and philanthropy. It provides a way for celebrities and public figures to endorse digital artwork created by renowned artists. Anyone can purchase each limited edition artwork, with a portion of the proceeds going to charitable causes that the celebrity supports. Ethernity was founded by early Bitcoin investor and NFT innovator Nick Rose Ntertsas.

Crypto Banter Will Give Away Over $500K To 10 Eligible Community Members
[Press Release – Cape Town, South Africa, 8th May, 2021]
Banter Bags is a unique project in the cryptocurrency world that aims to give back to its community. What initially started as a $10,000 community giveaway is now worth over $500.000. Ten eligible community members will be chosen randomly to receive their share of the spoils once the Crypto Banter Youtube channel surpasses 250,00 subscribers.
The Banter Bags Giveaway is an event created by Ran Neuner, host of CNBC Crypto Trader and founder of Crypto Banter on Youtube. The initial objective was to reward active participation in the community and generate more engagement with the daily streams but as the investments started to grow it became a mechanism to really change some community member lives.
Speaking of pre-market allocations, the Crypto banter team initially put $10,000 in a public Ethereum address. That money was then invested into allocations, with more investments occurring daily to diversify the portfolio further. Several key investments have noted spectacular returns, including Shopx, Aioz, Refineable and Occam. All of these pre-market allocations have gone up in value by a factor of 100 or more.
As the total value of the Banter Bags now exceeds $500,000, a golden opportunity is created for the community. Once the Youtube channel surpasses 250,000 subscribers, ten community members will earn a Banter Bag with the corresponding spoils. The only requirement to be eligible is to subscribe to Crypto Banter on YouTube and follow the Twitter account. Community members can amplify their chances by following @cryptomanran and @sheldon_sniper on Twitter, by liking/commenting on tweets, and engaging with the two daily streams.
The Crypto Banter team adds:
“It started off as a fun idea of giving $10000 to our community, and as we started to invest, we realized that the community loved the idea of investments in pre-market allocations that we previously off-limits for the average investor. With this in mind, we went all in using our influence to reward our community. It was supposed to be a cool $10,000 giveaway to reward the community, and it has landed up becoming an opportunity to change lives. The channel has exploded since we launched this initiative. We’re up by over 100% on every metric, we gained over 100k subscribers and got over 5m views in the last 28 days. More than that, our community has engaged more. They love the idea that we are giving back to them and that we may at any point change another life.”
Five winners have been randomly selected so far, all of which have an amazing story to share. One of the winners, who goes by the name of Irfan, lost his job and was struggling financially. With a pregnant wife expected to give birth in two months, being announced the winner of a Banter Bag triggered a life-changing event for Irfan. Anyone can go through a similar experience once the remaining Bags are given away to community members.
We also announced that one of the bags will be given to a charity and we are currently looking for a viable option.
