Stake came from the team at Primedice (review), one of the oldest and most trusted crypto gambling sites. Stake has long been one of the best crypto dice sites (review) and have a fantastic sportsbook (review).
Range: Massive, over 1400 slots available to play.
The slots run smoothly – although can be a little slow to load on your mobile device – and your balance updates with each spin, making everything easy to keep track of.
Frustratingly, a lot of Stake’s slots default to US Dollars. When you start a game you can click a dropdown menu and select Bitcoin, however this isn’t available across the whole range.
Range: Medium, 37 live tables available.
The live dealer tables are run through three providers – Evolution Gaming, Ezugi and Playtech.
All run well across desktop and mobile and are enjoyable to play. Maximum and minimum bet limits are displayed across each game, making it clear to the player which games are best for them.
When clicking on the tables games section the player is presented with the live table options as well, which is frustrating but could be there to mask Stake’s small range. The games work great on desktop, but some don’t translate well to mobile with the player having to constantly scroll up and down to get a bet on and watch the game.
The games themselves all work well and are fun.
The minimum bet is extremely low on Blackjack (1 Satoshi) which is great if you want to work out a strategy or are a beginner.
Unique deposit addresses: Not available.
Confirmations before play: 1.
Withdrawal time: Instant.
Player to player transfer: Available.
You can deposit with any of the hundreds of cryptos supported by Coinswitch and have it converted to any of the half a dozen main coins of your balance.
We love the max withdrawal button which saves you from having to enter your full balance down to 8 decimal places, although the minimum you can withdraw is 2 m฿, which is high.
Customer service channels available: Live chat and community chat.
Speed of replies: Nearly instant.
Accuracy of replies: Good, staff are well trained and knowledgeable.
