In this article, we’ll have a look at a recently launched Crypto Casino called Fairspin, which is offering both fiat and crypto deposits and a range of games. Registration with the platform is straightforward, although I do note that they require both an email address and a phone number when registering.
The casino uses their own token called TPlay, so any of your deposits will be converted into that, and it’s clearly outlined at the time when you’re on the deposit screen what these are. When you sign up, it offers you a 120% bonus, as well as 30 free spins with one of the slots. There are options to pay with fiat (visa/mastercard), or cryptocurrencies with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Litecoin, zCash and Tether available. The bitcoin blockchain was pretty congested at the time of writing, so I made a deposit using ethereum. Once the transaction confirmed a couple of minutes later, I got an alert by email telling me the funds were on my account, as well as the bonus funds. These bonus funds have a 25x wagering requirement to withdraw. The casino also features a cashback, offering 5% for the first couple of days, which then drops to 2% and then 1% after about a month. This gives funds back to your main balance, not your bonus balance.
The casino has a dark colour scheme, with a range of games from betting providers including Spinomenal, Microgaming, Betsoft, QucikSpin, Pragmatic Play, Playson, PGSoft, Booongo & Pragmatic Play Live.
The casino game section features a pretty solid range of tournament slots, slots, roulette, card games, video poker and then a range of live games. There was the option of a lottery, however it was blank at the time of writing.
I started off by having a look through the live casino. here it gave me three types of games, roulette, baccarat and my personal favourite blackjack. Some of them also had localised versions, with German, Russian, Macau & Turkish rooms available for Roulette.
The table I was at had a polite croupier, very high quality video and good audio, with a full table. The bets default to 10 dollars which was the minimum for the rooms available, which did catch me out on my first bet, and bonus funds aren’t eligible for play in the live casino. The betting sizes are 1, 5, 10, 20, 100 & 500 dollar bets. I played a couple of hands and unfortunately lost, so decided to move out of the live casino and give the slots a shot.
All the slots have a demo version, so you can give them a bit of a spin before committing real money. I tried a couple, crystal land is a variation more akin to a match 3 game where you spin and if the colours match, they get destroyed and you win. It also had frozen sections on the side so if you get them, it drops more and you can get combinations. There was quite a variety of games, with single line, some video-game style slots, and then a number of multi-line games. All of the games have sound, with some also featuring music, which is easy to switch on or off, and a full screen option if you want to play without distractions.
I then went into have a look at some of the roulette games. Now here I did notice some were using flash, and as I was using >Brave browser (which has flash disabled) so I didn’t have the full range of games available to me. I played a couple of rounds on European roulette, and thankfully broke even or won on the games I played. So I decided then to move onto classic blackjack and played a couple of hands. I lost most of what I played, not having much luck on the night unfortunately.
Moving on from there, I remembered that I had gotten 30 free spins with my deposit, so when I went into my balance screen, it told me the game was 4 Horsemen. This autostarted, and I won a lot of the rounds, and there was bonus multiplyers on some spins, as well as additional free spins so I actually got about 42 free spins in the end instead of 30. I had no control over it though, as the spins happened automatically and at the end the bonus funds were added to my account.
So now I wanted to see how getting funds off the platform was like. I had several bonuses, one from my first deposit bonus, and the second from my free spins. You can’t withdraw without cancelling your bonus funds. Now normally I’d use them first, but as I do want to test getting funds out, I cancelled both the bonuses I had received from my first deposit and the free spins.
I chose to withdraw by ethereum, and for this it told me that the minimum withdrawal was 10 TPlay (equivalent to 0.01 ethereum) which is pretty low, so I went ahead and put in my wallet address. Once concluding the withdrawal, it said it would be processed in about 15 minutes. I did the deposit at 9:15pm and they were confirmed in my wallet by 9:53pm, so there wasn’t a major delay on this, and I was pleased with how smooth the process was. I didn’t have any KYC to do though when withdrawing, although the T&C’s say this may happen with larger withdrawals.
So all in all, summing up my experience of Fairspin casino; the casino is new so it has a solid selection of games, although maybe not the biggest range compared to more established crypto casinos, but more than enough for me to have a good session playing a range of games. Other than the few games that didn’t work because of Flash, all the games were bright, had nice graphics, pleasant audio and it was great to be able to do the demo mode on the casino games and figure out if I liked a game before betting real funds. The live casino does have a higher minimum bet than others I’ve tried, which might put some people off, but they had high quality streams and every table I played on was full with plenty of other players. Getting funds off the Fairspin casino was simple, the conversion between fiat/crypto and TPlay is clear, and getting funds off the platform was a smooth, fast experience and faster than lots of other casino’s I’ve tried.
