”With a wide range of slots, unique casino and soft games, b-Bets Casino offers a reliable gaming platform with advanced innovative features.”
b-Bets Casino is licensed in Costa Rica and owned by Condor Gaming SRL Limited. In the past decade, the nation of Costa Rica has emerged as a popular destination to many e-commerce ventures. The government is attracting a variety of foreign start-up businesses looking for tax incentives and friendly legal code.
The only downside is that the Costa Rican government has not yet passed any laws which regulates gambling. As such this jurisdiction has become a breeding ground for unscrupulous online casinos. Operators licensed here operate freely under municipal (city) licenses. Taxes and licensing fees are low or non-existent, but the Costa Rica economy benefits through the creation of jobs and personal income tax.
When it comes to the various casino games that could be played, I’m glad to see that b-Bets Casino signed up reputable virtual gaming vendors like Microgaming, Net Entertainment, Nyx Interactive and Play’n GO. The game variety is well covered and divided into slots machines (majority), table games (blackjack and roulette), live casino, mobile gambling sports book and tournaments. The software is instant play (browser-based).
Deposit Bonus and Wagering Requirements
To attract new clientèle through its virtual doors, b-Bets Casino offers something unique especially when it comes to its bonuses. First time customers receive 100 BidBets. How does it work? You get to pick your own bonuses by bidding on the site’s various auctions. To be honest this is a first for me too and a smart concept.
”You can use your BidBets to bid on extra bonus money, to bid on Free Spins for your favorite game, or to bid on higher percentages for no-deposit bonuses and much more…Possibilities are endless when using BidBets and the choices are completely up to you! The beauty is, while you regularly play our casino games, you earn even more BidBets for even more auctions, sounds like a complete circle of fun time. Please read our ” Getting Started ” page for more information!”
New players qualify for a match bonus of 100% up to $250. The bonus will be credited to your account once you’ve deposited a minimum of 10 credits. For the sake of fair gaming, the bonus and associated deposit amount must be turned over 30 times (60xb) before any funds can be withdrawn from the casino. I must admit although I like the size of the bonus, I can’t say that I’m impressed with the play-through since it’s steep.
If you’re not sure how the wagering requirement works here’s a quick example. Christine accepts the bonus of 100% up to 250 credits. She deposits $50 and receives bonus of $50. Her initial bankroll just shot up to $100. She decides to play the following NetEnt slots machines since they’re laced with lucrative bonus rounds and high-end graphics: Gonzo’s Quest, Jack Hammer and Twin Spin. Before she can cash out her winnings she must stake 30x$200=$6,000.
Additional Bonus Terms
- The wagering requirement counts 100% towards the following games: slots machines, Keno, Bingo and Scratch cards.
- Roulette, video poker, live and normal table games contribute 15%. If you use the bonus to play these games you must wager more cash. The reason for this is the house edge is lower than slots.
Email and live chat support is available 24/7. The only caveat I have is with the live chat support. It’s not available round the clock but only during business hours: Monday to Friday, Western European time 20:00 to 24:00 and from 15:00 to 18:00.
The most convenient form of support is either through email or filling out an online contact form. Telephone numbers are not listed. A comprehensive frequently asked section gives a brief overview how the bid system works, how to register an account, various bonuses offered and their wagering requirements, games, sportsbook and financial queries. Please go through it before you sign up.
The run-of-the-mill responsible gaming tools apply to b-Bets Casino as well. Players with one eye on the bankrolls can set up deposit and session limits. In other words they get to decide how much cash they want to gamble within a given period. If you feel that you’ve exceeded your cash limit and would like a ‘cooling off’ period, contact support and state your reasons as to why you want to be self-excluded.
Security and Fairness
If you click on ”Fairplay”, b-Bets Casino states that the random number generator (RNG) of its games is tested clockwork for any discrepencies by TST (Technical Systems Testing) and eCOGRA.
Although I have to go with the operator on this one. A little corroboration by posting the findings of the audit report on its website can go a long way. Also, it does not state that it uses SSL encryption software.
In summary. Although b-Bets Casino is licensed in Costa Rica (not my jurisdiction of choice) one has to give the operator the benefit of the doubt. At this point in time one can clearly see that it is really trying to offer something unique in terms of its bonuses (BidBets), game library by signing up quality vendors and a rewards program.
Taking into account that Costa Rica is a tax haven and the overall overheads are quite low if compared to that of Alderney or Gibraltar. I’d like to see the following: Lower the bonus play-through from 60 to at least 40 times, become more transparent by posting the audit report and SSL certificate and increase the monthly withdrawal limit of 2,500 credits to 10,000. Otherwise recommended.
Bonuses & Promotions
b-Bets Casino offers new customers a series of bonuses, reload bonuses coupled with free spins to returning players, a VIP program and special prizes that could be won. Suffice it to say active players will not be disappointed.
In the bonus department new players can pick one of three:
- 400% match bonus up to a maximum of $€40 to players from the following countries:
- 100% up to $100 (+100 BidBets)
- 120% up to $100 (+20 BidBets)
*The WR of each bonus is 60xb.
Regular players will be pampered with weekly free spins, tournaments and they can join the VIP program.
Banking at b-Bets
When you click on the ”Payments” tab you’ll see the various deposit and withdrawal methods at your disposal. b-Bets Casino states that its banking facility is 100% secure.
Deposits are instand and withdrawals via ewallets will be processed within 24 to 48 hours and bank transfers 3 to 5 business days. Credit and debit cards as a deposit method are not offered.
Before you can play at the casino you must deposit €20. Deposits can be made in British Pounds Stareling, Euros and American Dollars. To speed us the withdrawal process the usual verifications documents are needed: Copy of your ID, drivers license or passport (picture included), utility bill (water and electricity or insurance) and a valid bank statement that’s not older than 3 months.
The maximum monthly withdrawal limit is $€£2,500.
The game library is well categorized offering a total game selection of 700 plus games-simply put you can’t go wrong here. It’s refreshing to see that the table game variety (blackjack and roulette variants) is well covered for a change since most online casinos nowadays offer a rather watered-down selection.
Aside from the table games; the rest of the line up comprises of 3D slots machines (NetEnt), a live casino, scratch cards (Microgaming) and video poker (NYX). Overall the game graphics are flushed with extended game animations, customization features (Audio, game speed and graphic settings) and a dealer voice in the table games.
The video poker variety is great too. Popular titles include Aces and Faces, Jacks or Better, Joker Wild, All American Double and many more. As an avid player, video poker is a semi-skilled game and the only game where the player can consistently win against the house. Assuming the software is above board and the games are not rigged.
I must admit no casino’s gaming suite is complete without a live casino. You can play your favourite table games like blackjack and roulette against the live dealers. Live games are streamed directly to your computer via webcam from a land-based studio.
When it comes to choosing a live casino to play at, players take three factors into account-quality of the video feed, ability to understand the dealers and an easy interface. If a player can easily understand the dealer and the video feed is good, it greatly increases the chances that the player will deposit at the site. At this stage the most popular live dealer game is roulette. It accounts for 60 percent of the revenue at most live casinos.
What’s the biggest difference between the live dealer and a traditional random number generator (RNG)? The live dealer play is significantly slower. Just like in a land-casino you must wait for the dealer to conduct the game-whether it’s dealing the cards (fewer hands per minute) or spinning the roulette wheel.[addtoany]
