Megawins is a relatively new addition to the online casino world. Having just
launched in December of 2016,
it’s got about seven months under its belt at the time of this review, so
there’s not an extensive track record to reference as yet. The website is casino
plus a very limited live casino only and is geared toward Bitcoin users. The
benefit of Megawins, though, is that it also provides
Fiat options in addition to Bitcoin, including credit, debit, and e-wallets.
The number and variety of the alternative financial options are impressive
considering its primary focus is on Bitcoin use.
We like the concept of the Bitcoin focus plus allowing players to use more
traditional methods to finance their betting. The slot games are plentiful and
diverse, and there are some bonuses aside from deposit matches, so those are
nice additions. Customer service is not readily available, and the deposit and
withdrawal methods are not disclosed to non-registered players and both of those
service-related issues detract from a good overall casino.
Megawins uses a team of software providers to offer players a good,
well-rounded experience. With 686 different slots available to some players, the
variety is going to be there but the live casino only has three tables, and not
all games are available in every geographical location, so it didn’t seem right
to give a 5-star rating.
As a Bitcoin casino, players receive the benefit of near instant deposits and
withdrawals with no fees attached and no hoops to jump through. However, there
are other more traditional financial options available to players and the reason
we downgraded the rating is because there is no menu of deposit and withdrawal
information posted for anyone who isn’t a registered player. We like full
disclosure so new customers know what they can expect and can read through
everything before deciding to commit.
The 110% welcome bonus is decent as it provides for up to one Bitcoin, but
there is a 35 times rollover that offsets the value of it. Lottery drawings and
monthly slot tournaments do add some value as well as slots cash back Mondays so
the score is back up there again.
We didn’t take off any stars for poor service but did experience first hand a
long waiting period to receive an answer. First of all, live chat is the only
option available to players but, secondly, it’s not an instant chat. You can
provide your email address, and they’ll get back to you, and we highly recommend
doing that as it took us a few hours to receive a response.
It’s not only an eye-catching website but, for a site that hosts a huge
number of games, it manages to organize them in a way that makes reviewing the
options as comfortable as possible. The mobile casino is equal in quality and
offers a high percentage of the game collection for tablet and smartphone play.
Overview of Megawins Casino
It is a product of Direx N.V. for direct ownership, and
SoftSwiss for operations, customer
service, and technology. Direx owns several other gambling websites, all
listed under the Curacao licensing, including Bitstarz, Space Casino, King Billy
Casino, Betstreak, Dasist Casino, Play Casino, and Queen Spin.
SoftSwiss began in 2008 as a provider of online auction software but branched
out into iGaming in 2012, and it’s now known primarily for Bitcoin software.
SoftSwiss does provide some specific games, and it also manages customer service
Eligibility to Register and Play for Real Money
Megawins promotes that players must be 18 and over and from a legally
authorized area of residence. Anyone from Spain, the United Kingdom or the
United States are restricted from playing any of the games for real money, even
Megawins uses a variety of software providers so does have some additional
game-specific geographical restrictions that we’ll note in just a bit when we
break down the casino games.
Colorful and User-Friendly Website
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we feel that megawins.com is an all
around attractive and quality website. It does have a more cartoon-like feel
that, for some sites, doesn’t work out well but, in this case, it fits.
If we weren’t going to provide you with this entire review and wanted just to
give you a one-sentence overview instead, it would be that Megawins offers a
huge number of games in an entirely user-friendly environment whether you opt to
use Bitcoin or another more traditional method of deposit.
Casino and Live Casino Only
Links to all of the different areas are provided on the left including the
promotions and currently available tournaments. Megawins doesn’t offer a poker
room, sportsbook, or racebook. There technically is a live casino, but it’s only
available to players in certain areas, and it’s not exactly overflowing with
tables as there are only four and they’re all roulette, so the term live casino
may be a stretch.
Multiple Software Providers
Many times you’ll see sites labeled as a Betsoft Casino or a Microgaming site
and players are aware that games are provided by that one particular software
provider. With Megawins, customers are treated to a custom experience. Megawins
uses a dozen different suppliers to fill a library of games that are quite
extensive. In some regions, over 600 regular slot titles alone are up for the
Betsoft and NetEnt, two of the bigger game designers, are featured, but
others include Pocketdice, Amatic, Booming Games, Endorphina, Game Art,
Habanero, iSoftBet, MrSlotty, SoftSwiss, and Next Gen.
The Little Extras That Can Be Helpful
Using a variety of gaming providers is one of those little extras that make a
difference, but if you’re new to Megawins, you’ll also find a handy FAQ section
as well as running tally of the most recently issued prizes, both large and
small. The winners scroll across the homepage, so you feel like you’ve also got
a chance at an actual payout. If you need help at any time, there is a live chat
button, but we will say that it took us about two hours to get an initial
response, so consider it to be more of an email service rather than instant
Don’t Confuse It with Megawin
There is a megawin.com and just dropping that “s” takes you from this
particular casino, hosted at megawins.com, to a lottery subscription site.
As Megawins isn’t providing a sportsbook or other alternative forms of
gaming, its focus is entirely on casino games and, depending on the area in
which you live; you could select anywhere from 165 to 686 different slot games
If you’re in a restricted region, you can still play the games for free, but
real money betting will not be available to you.
Library size – varies per region
Slots take center stage, and by using a dozen different gaming companies, the
slot library is very diverse and includes a minimum of 18 jackpot games
Audio and video quality
The video slot quality is exceptional, but some games will offer a better
playing experience over others depending on the individual software.
he majority of games are available for mobile play on smartphones and
tablets. In one region where 165 slot games were hosted on the full site, 146
transferred over for mobile access.
In the beginning, we did mention that game availability depends on exactly
where the player resides, and some specific exclusions are noted that we wanted
to pass along should you be interested in trying out the Megawins service.
Remember residents of Spain, the UK, and the US are prohibited from any real
money wagering on this site. So, even though they aren’t explicitly mentioned,
if you live in one of those three countries, you need to look else for an online
casino unless you just want to play for fun.
You are restricted from playing any of the NetEnt games like the Live Casino
versions but also from any jackpot games offered by NetEnt including the popular
Mega Fortune top prize if you live in any of the following countries:
Papua New Guinea
You’ll usually find that an i-Casino will divide up their slots into
different categories like three-reel, five-reel, and video. That’s not the case
with Megawins. All of the slot games are in one section with the jackpot
versions sectioned out for easy access
As we’ve mentioned, you’re going to have a different service depending on
where you live. In some areas, if you pull up the slot menu, you’ll see 165
titles. In Canada, it increases to 422, and head over to Sweden and you’re
looking at a whopping 686.
If you’ve been on a Betsoft, NetEnt, or NextGen gaming site, you’ll more than
likely recognize many of the games, but you’ll also see some new ones that you
probably haven’t come across before, courtesy of the other software companies
that add to the entire collection.
The most favorite games are:
The Tipsy Tourist
Platoon Wild Progressive
Kings of Chicago
Wild Wild West
Legend of Qu Yuan
Heavy Metal Warriors
Football: Champions Cup
Guns ‘n Roses
Eye of Ra
Just as a quick disclaimer, you may look at our number of games and wonder if
we’ve ever learned to count but, again, the entire Megawins service varies with
each geographical area so we’re going to provide an average game count and just
a few specific titles that you may find.
Most of the jackpot action is also available for mobile play. Keep in mind
that NetEnt titles may show up when you pull up the casino but, review the list
of areas we provided because NetEnt games and jackpot awards are not issued in
certain regions, even if the games still show up on your screen.
A few Jackpot choices:
At the Copa
Mega Glam Life
Good Girl Bad Girl
Video Poker – 17 (two on Mobile)
This site has a great video poker section featuring some of the newer
offerings, but it’s a shame that more of them aren’t available for mobile play.
These are the two games that you can play on smartphones or tablets:
New Joker Pro Touch
Five Play Draw Multihand
Deuces Wild Double Up
Match Times Pay – Jacks or Better
Ultimate X Triple Play (or Five or Ten Play)
Table Games – 26 (Four on Mobile)
Don’t get too excited to read about many table game options as this area
encompasses 26 Blackjack, Roulette, and other games.
Double Bonus Spin
Triple Bonus Spin
Blackjack Classic Touch
Blackjack Professional Series
Double Exposure Blackjack Professional
Single Deck Blackjack Professional
Pontoon Professional Series
Casino Hold ’em
Texas Hold ’em Professional Series
Red Dog Progressive
Baccarat Professional Series
Oasis Poker Professional Series
Caribbean Stud Professional Series
Live Casino – 5
NetEnt and ComTrade
Gaming provide the five-selection live dealer experience. The quantity is
small, but the variety is decent.
The Palaces Live Roulette
The Palaces Live Blackjack
If you’re familiar with Palatial Leisure’s land-based bingo clubs, you would
expect that its websites would be bingo crazy with all kinds of promotions and
different themed rooms, but the company took a different approach with The
Palaces, as it already has other dedicated bingo sites.
The focus is on the casino, so the bingo area is streamlined with three main
Golden Scoop – £5,000 – .25 ticket
Silver Scoop – £2,000 – .25 ticket
Bronze Scoop – £2,000 – .25 ticket
You can play on the full site or mobile and pre-order games on either as
The scoop jackpot is awarded if bingo is in 43 numbers or less and the bingo
lobby lists the schedule of upcoming games.
We always like to see a nice concise fully disclosed table of deposit and
withdrawal options as well as any turnaround times and fees that may be
associated. Megawins is set up to be auto adaptive (where everything changes
depending on geography) including registration, the games that can be played (or
not), the bonuses, and the ever important financial options.
Now, if you’re using Bitcoin, which we’re sure many of you will since this is
primarily a Bitcoin casino, you’re all set. No fees are added, and Bitcoin can
be used for deposits and withdrawals with ease. The minimum Bitcoin deposit is
only one mBTC, and there are no minimum requirements for withdrawals.
We contacted Megawins Customer Service department to obtain accurate
information regarding the other options available to players that don’t want to
use Bitcoin, and we were told that they would vary as each player is provided
with customized options.
The following are the methods they did confirm as being widely accepted,
though. The customer service agent did note that the only method that has
significant fees attached was the bank transfer.
€20 w/ Fees
Bonuses and Promotions
Because there isn’t a separate sportsbook or poker room, all bonuses apply to
all players. However, some geographical restrictions vary depending on the type
of award so, if you’re thinking of registering, we recommend verifying that
you’re eligible for all of the value-adds that peak your interest.
110% Welcome Bonus
This is a one-time offer that applies to the first deposit made by a newly
registered player. There’s a minimum deposit requirement of 40
mBTC or €25, and the maximum award is €150 or one BTC. Megawins does impose
a hefty rollover mandate of 35 times on the bonus amount before anything can be
50% 2nd Deposit Bonus
The same rollover requirement applies, but this award is only good for 50% of
the deposited amount up to €150 or two BTC.
25% 3rd Deposit Bonus
You can see how it’s decreasing, but new players still do receive some reward
on their first three deposits. This 3rd deposit bonus is for 25% of the amount
put into the player’s account up to €150 or one BTC.
25 No Deposit Free Spins
25 free spins are awarded after an initial deposit of at least €25 is made.
Free spins need to be used within 24 hours after they’re issued and, as they are
considered to be a no deposit bonus, they have a 40 times rollover requirement
on the winnings and the maximum payout is €30 or 50 mBTC.
Slots Cashback Money
To qualify, you need to have lost but only €.10 or .10mBTC, so that’s not too
bad, right? The cashback offer is 15% on your losses and is applied
automatically. There’s more good news, though, to offset your not so good loss,
as the cashback award only has a five-times play through requirement.
Click the lottery menu item from the left side list to see if a new drawing
is coming up. It’s a €1,000 monthly payout reward.
Monthly Slots Tournament
12 times a year players can get in on the €3,000 prize pool simply by playing
their favorite slot games. The top prize is €1,000, and the other nine top-ten
payouts include €500, €300, €250, €200, €175, €125, €100, €75 and 150 free spins
pro, and €60 and 150 free spins pro. There’s a leaderboard posted in the
tournament area so you can scope out your competition.
The Mega Points program is a seven-tier loyalty club where players have
automatically opted into the first tier without any status point prerequisites.
Mega points that are earned, move players up the levels of the program and
points can be exchanged for money. Once you get to the top tier, the Zen Master
status which takes 25,000 points, you get three days of 15% cash back as well as
100% deposit match until you’ve reached a bonus maximum of one Bitcoin. There is
a dedicated hostess listed in the VIP area for specific program questions or
Side Note on Bonus Programs
We did note the rollover requirements for each, but if you’re new to the
wonderful world of online casino bonuses, not only do you need to be mindful of
them but know that not all games contribute to those stipulations. Slots and
video slots come in at 100%, but Video Poker and Table Games only add up at a
10% rate, and the rest of the options including Live Casino and Casual games add
nothing to your quest to satisfy your play through obligation.
Customer Support department availability – Live Chat only
Because of the lack of deposit and withdrawal options front and center, we
did have the opportunity to use Megawins’ live chat customer support service.
The site doesn’t list an email address or phone number, so its clients do need
to rely on the chat function.
Customer service is provided by SoftSwiss, the company responsible for the
operations and technology end of things and, although the agent was
knowledgeable and extremely friendly, it took nearly two hours to receive a
Now, we will say that if you use the chat and it happens to be backed up like
it apparently was when we accessed it; you do get an option to leave your email
address. That way, your answer can be sent to you, so you don’t need to stare at
your computer screen afraid to walk away and miss the reply you’ve been
anxiously awaiting. It seems odd, though, that a live chat that is supposed to
be instantly answered would take hours to come through with a response.
We’d much rather just have an email address, so we know what we’re in for and
don’t expect an answer within a few minutes.
We would have to have hundreds of reviews to accurately provide you with a
list of services that Megawins provides to you, specifically. Everything is
customized according to location.
Unfortunately, players from the US, UK, and Spain are prohibited from
wagering any real money on megawins.com. Other regions vary regarding financial
options, bonuses, and specific game titles available for play, as well as
whether or not a live casino is available or not.
The slots area, even if you’re being offered the smallest catalog of games,
is quite impressive. We’re fans of using multiple software providers so that
players have a better selection and aren’t tied to just one type of game, like
it or not.
Bonuses are not the greatest. The 35 to 40 times rollover detracts from
otherwise decent offers, but we do like that tournaments and some alternative
promotions are also available.
If you’re a slot or video poker player, you’ll probably enjoy the quantity
and quality of service provided. Table game players aren’t quite as catered to,
but poker players who are fine not being in a dedicated live poker room, also
have quite a few options at their disposal.
Megawins is a great casino for slot and video poker players. The focus on
Bitcoin for financial transactions makes it easier for players to fund their
accounts, regardless of their location, and there are plenty of other options to
appease non-Bitcoin users as well. The bonus programs are lacking, but if you’re
looking for a good simple go to for casino game play with a straightforward,
simple, and upscale website to use, you may want to give Megawins a try.
Bitcoin provides for quick, easy and hassle-free financial transactions.
There’s no approval needed by any third party like a bank, so they’re nearly
100% guaranteed. Aside from the convenience, though, players are not penalized
for using another payment method. There are no Bitcoin-only promotions, just an
elevated maximum on the match deposit allowance of €150 or one BTC.
What is the minimum deposit requirement?
You can transfer as little as €20 or one mBTC (.001 BTC) into your player’s
account. Keep in mind that, if you plan to take advantage of bonuses, there is a
minimum €25 deposit imposed to qualify.
Is there a maximum on what I can cash out of my Megawins account?
There is no overall maximum, but there is a transactional ceiling. If you’re
using Bitcoin and you’re trying to cash out 25 or more, it will take you awhile
to receive it. The entire payout will be divided up into ten parts and issued at
a rate of 10% monthly so that you won’t have your entire winnings in hand for
ten full months. If you’re using another method, your each-time payout cap will
depend on the withdrawal method you initiated.
Do I need to know anything else about bonuses?
First of all, we highly suggest that you read the terms and conditions
thoroughly, so you fully understand everything that’s involved with the specific
bonus you’re interested in accepting. You’ll want to know rollovers as well as
betting requirements. We did mention that most of the play through requirements
are set at 35 and 40 times and that some games don’t contribute to meeting
those, but you’ll also want to know that your maximum bet is limited to €10
until your rollover is satisfied or you could void any winnings you receive.
