Review of Megawins Casino
Bitcoin casinos are growing in popularity thanks to the speed of transactions and psuedo-anonymous, peer-to-peer nature of the digital currency. Megawins Casino is another in a spate of recently opened casinos running on a SoftSwiss platform that combines both Bitcoin and regular fiat currency play into one package. The quality of the other SoftSwiss sites that we have reviewed has generally been good, but nevertheless I made sure to go over this casino with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything is on the up.
Software and game selection
Megawins Casino is powered by the SoftSwiss gaming platform, which enables it to offer a variety of games from developers including Ezugi, Net Entertainment, Amatic, Endorphina, GameArt, Habanero, and Mr Slotty. The games are provided through a web-based instant play platform that loads up directly through your internet browser, and is fully compatible with both desktop PCs and and mobile phones and tablets. The site itself is easy to navigate and is quite sharp in all actuality. There is a good search function that helps you to find specific games and the casino has the game genres broken up well, so you shouldn't have any problem finding the specific game you want.
There are a lot of different slots available at Megawins, and the above-mentioned developers provide hundreds of titles to choose from. This lets you get your hands on slots from licensed entertainment properties as well as unique games thought up by the developers themselves. Unfortunately, I did note that Megawins offers BetSoft slots, which we've shown evidence here at Casino Listings of having jackpots that can be simply unwinnable.
In terms of non slot games, there is a good selection of Blackjack, Roulette, table poker, and video poker games for punters to test their luck at. There are both RNG and live dealer versions of popular table games, and the live dealer games are dealt from studios run by supplier Ezugi.
An interesting point to note is that the filter menus of available games changes with the currency that you have selected. As we have seen at other SoftSwiss casinos, there are games from certain suppliers such as Net Entertainment that cannot be played with Bitcoin as a currency. So if you want to see those games and search them you need to go into your account settings and switch your currency over to Euros for example.
Banking and Customer Support
The banking system allows you to deposit and withdraw in both Bitcoin and a range of other fiat currencies. And if you want to try games from all the different suppliers at this casino you will have to do both because, as mentioned above, suppliers such as Net Ent will not permit their games to be played with Bitcoin. In this case you have to deposit Euros (or other currency) into your account which is held in a distinct balance separately from your Bitcoin balance in order to play them. The fact that you cannot automatically convert your current Bitcoin balance into Euros for example, and back again, is a bit of an inconvenience, but no doubt enforced by regulatory rules.
Aside from Bitcoin deposits, there are other methods available for deposit and withdrawal such as Skrill, Neteller, Paysafecard, Visa, and MasterCard. Bitcoin is generally the best way to conduct your transactions though, as winnings are paid out almost instantly. My test of the Bitcoin withdrawal process was complete in under an hour in fact. All other methods have a general payout time of 1-3 business days. In terms of payout limits, the casino stipulates that winnings larger than 50 Bitcoins (or currency equivalent) may be split up into ten monthly payouts.
Customer service is available through live chat and email, both of which are available 24 hours a day. I found the support to be decent, as the staff was able to answer the general easy questions I throw the way of support in order to test out their knowledge. However it would add that extra touch of convenience if they offered telephone or Skype support.
Security, Fairness, and Responsible Gaming
Megawins protects player information using SSL encryption, which is built into the site's architecture from the top down. This is a key security feature that protects your information from being intercepted by thieves, and most reputable sites in operation today feature encryption in some capacity. Identification documents can be uploaded through he website's encrypted connection rather than through insecure email channels which is good to see.
A limited number of the games at the casino, including those developed by SoftSwiss, provide a provably fair mechanism that allows you to check that the results of the spin or deal were fair and not altered after your initial bet took place. Some other games report their theoretical RTP numbers in game paytables or help screens. However there is no consistency in this approach across all the games, nor is there a single consolidated list of either theoretical or actual RTP numbers published by the casino.
There are an excellent set of controls available for limiting your activity at this casino. Inside your account settings page you can set deposit, loss, and wager limits for periods of a day, week or month. You can also set a cooling off period of up to 6 months and total self-exclusion if you prefer. This is all user-controllable and you do not need to speak to support or anyone else to activate these restrictions.
There are some really good things going on at Megawins Casino. It has an attractive layout, a ton of games to play, and it processes Bitcoin payouts rapidly. It has similar drawbacks as other SoftSwiss casinos though, chiefly the need to maintain separate Bitcoin and normal currency balances to play all the games in the casino. But ultimately if you are looking for a good Bitcoin casino featuring genuine games and professional operation then Megawins is definitely worth a look.
