Although there is no maximum deposit limit, players are required to deposit at least 0.1 BTC and they are charged a 0.2% deposit fee which cuts into a players’ gambling pots. Withdrawals are no better as the cash-out limits are a minuscule 5 BTC, which will take numerous cash out requests and a number of weeks to claim very large jackpots.
They offer about 200+ casino games and do not support sports bookings or live games. Games can be tested with their own FUN currency which acts as a virtual play money in order to demo the games. When you feel confident enough then you can use your actual crypto currencies.

There is no download and all games are accessible via the Flash browser. As we all know flash heavy sites take up much more bandwidth which slows pages down. But the biggest concern is that Adobe Flash has been highly susceptible to critical vulnerabilities, especially in the past year. These vulnerabilities may allow hackers to take control of your computer which will enable them to steal your personal data. Just as bad is being hit by ransomware which in effect holds a computer hostage and requires the user to pay the hacker to get access back to their computer.
