When you start playing at Stake you'll know exactly what's in store for you. Well, you won't know if you'll win anything, but that would only ruin the fun anyway. The casino is very transparent in every way. You'll know at all times what bonuses are in store for you, who's winning or losing at Stake and the percentage of the house edge for a certain game. You can even verify the game play after playing, because all the games are provably fair.

Bonuses

Get social and reap the benefits

3/5

It doesn't matter if you prefer casino games or sports betting, Stake does provide you with a good number of bonuses and promotions. With the exception of a welcome bonus, which unfortunately is not being offered in this casino.

You will be able to find regular bonuses, exciting challenges or special promotions for a specific time or event. If you take a part in the Stake Community, you will be entitled to even more benefits. All you have to do to accomplish this is to have an active presence on the chat and forum. 

Other available bonuses

  • Stake Races: Race against your new and existing friends in the Stake community for a chance to win decent prizes.
  • Telegram Challenges: Join the Stake Telegram channel and get notified about the daily promotions. Some prizes are worth the effort. 

VIP program

Besides all these extra's you can also be invited to the VIP program. This only happens after you have proven your loyalty. The benefits are worth it and start at bonuses, progress to exclusive goodies and end in luxurious trips to gambling capitals around the world.

Look & Feel

A breadth of fresh air

5/5

The first time you enter this casino, you'll notice how clean and fresh everything looks. Aside from that, it's clear Stake places a lot of emphasis on its social experience, with a player chat on the right-hand side, you'll immediately feel like you are a part of a community as opposed to just being an unidentified player in a casino. Overall, the design in this casino makes everybody feel welcomed to join.

Game Selection

Know the RTP at first glance

4/5

The game selection at Stake is very interesting, to say the least. What the casino apparently lacks in some way, it makes up for it in another. Let's dive into it.

In the casino section, you'll find a total of 14 different games, which is not a lot. You'll find casino classics like a Slot, Roulette and Blackjack. In addition to that, you'll also find the lesser known Dice and Keno games. If you are looking to get to know new casino games, then Limbo, Mines or Plinko might be an option for you. However, you'll probably notice that there's only version of every game, so there's only one Slot, one Blackjack game, and so on.

Also, none of these games are created by external providers, they're all developed by Stake. So if you're looking for your favorite slot by NetEnt this isn't the place to find it. But don't get discouraged yet, because the games offered by Stake offer something else entirely different regarding transparency and house edge.

  • Dice
  • Limbo
  • Hilo
  • Keno
  • Mines
  • Plinko
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Slot
  • Crash
  • Wheel
  • Diamonds
  • Baccarat
  • Video poker
  • Slide
  • Sportsbook
  • Esports

Before you open any game, you can see the house edge - which is quite low! This makes it easy to opt for the game with the biggest benefit for the player. If you want to be completely sure of your odds, you can also check out the table of real time wins and losses that other players are generating which also shows you which cryptocurrency they are using. 

All these casino games are provably fair. You are therefore guaranteed to play in a safe and transparent environment. In our book this type of innovation surely makes up for the lack of traditional games you find in 90% of the casinos out there - you just have to decide if it's right for you.

There is also a sportsbook section at Stake, which is quite extensive. It combines sports betting and esports betting in one platform. This might just be the future as esports are getting bigger at the expense of regular sports. Another nice aspect is that the possible bets cater to a worldwide market, instead of just focusing on one continent. 

Licensing & Safety

Stake proves it with a seal

5/5

Stake is licensed by the government of Curaçao. Due to this license Stake is not able to operate in all countries. Players in restricted territories are not allowed to use the services of the platform.

In addition to having a license, all of Stake's games are also provably fair. This means that you can always review the game play in case you have any doubts regarding the outcome of a game.

The casino also has a Crypto Gambling Foundation seal. This is a seal of approval from an estimated and impartial organization that assures you the casino is indeed trustworthy.

Payment Options

Nothing is for free

4/5

You have 7 cryptocurrencies to choose from when playing at Stake. These are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, Tron, Doge Coin and Bitcoin Cash. When it comes to withdrawals you are subject to a small fee with each of the possible currencies.

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Litecoin
  • Ripple
  • Tron
  • Bitcoin Cash
  • Dogecoin
  • EOS

The processing times are usually immediate, but that depends largely on the speed of the blockchain network. Also, you can verify the current exchange rate that is being used (Bitcoin to Dollar) at the bottom of the page.

While one of the benefits of paying with cryptocurrencies is the anonymity that comes with it, you do need to create an account and reveal your identity to be able to play at Stake.

Customer Support

You can ask your questions any time of the day

5/5

Any questions or problems that might come up will be taken care of by the friendly support team. You can contact them via email or through the live chat. The latter of which is the quickest option.

Stake promises that a team member will answer your questions within a few minutes but this is usually much faster. Unfortunately, this casino doesn't offer a FAQ page, so you'll need to get in touch with any question you may have.

In addition to the live chat, there's a players chat on the right hand side of the page. This is perfect if you have some general questions that fellow players might be able to answer or if you just want to chat with like minded people.

Great review :) Stake is one of my n1 choice. Has a really good community and it has amazing looks and experience. I think it should have a few more cryptos as deposit method but can't complain otherwise. Quite fast customer support as well.
