BitStarz Celebrates Its 4th Birthday!
BitStarz officially turns four years old today, so it’s time to celebrate. Starting the party in style, we have a very special birthday bonus for our players to enjoy. All players can grab a 100% reload bonus today, so you can give your account balance a BitStarz birthday boost in just a few clicks. But that’s not all, considering that it is our birthday – as we opened on 8th April, 2014 in case you didn’t know – we felt that it was the right time for us to look back. Largely as the past four years have been quite the journey. Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane, while also taking a sneak peek at what the future holds for the world’s most exciting cryptocurrency casino!
Built from a Bitcoin base
BitStarz began life as nothing more than an idea. Founded by a group of casino-fanatics, they decided to create a platform that was entirely different to the bland online casinos currently being offered. The goal was to think outside of the box, raising the bar for the industry by delivering a unique casino experience – one that felt truly personal. Binding the idea together was the growth of a brand new digital currency that would go on to change the world. Bitcoin has become a true global phenomenon, with it being the focus of BitStarz, at least during its early years.
If Bitcoin is the foundation of BitStarz, then we’ve certainly built on it since then. Our record-breaking cashout times – which now fall under 10 minutes – and 24/7 human live chat support have made headlines, but we’ve also had our eye on what’s going on around us. We’ve watched the cryptocurrency market grow, with many of our players diversifying through various altcoins. Making sure that every player is catered for, we now accept not just Bitcoin (BTC), but Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC) as well. This is on top of the standard currencies we let our players wager with, including Euro, US Dollars, Swedish Krona, Norwegian Krone, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar, and British Pound. Don’t think that’s the end of things either, as we are looking to add more currencies to our cashier page – crypto and otherwise – in the not so distant future.
The total online casino platform
If you want some pretty decent evidence of how much BitStarz has grown, you simply need to take a look at our website. As you’ll see from the picture below, it’s been all change over the years. We weren’t exactly web design experts back in the day, so the basic graphics are sure to raise a few laughs. But, what you’ve probably learned about BitStarz over the past four years is that we are one casino that doesn’t like to stand still. Year on year we’ve grown our team, adding more ideas into the mix. This has allowed us to become one of the best online casinos around.
What we’ve also been able to do is improve the functionality of the site. Growth is all about learning, so we’ve listened to our players along the way. You wanted an organized game catalog, we made that happen, you wanted a fully-functional search system, we made that happen, you wanted lightning-fast loading times, we made that happen. With each passing birthday we’ve looked to become a bigger and better casino, so making our site the complete package represents another conquered challenge.
Bringing a whole new level of action
Where do we even begin when it comes to games? Four years ago, we knew that we were jumping into a competitive marketplace, so just a random selection games weren’t going to be enough. We opened our doors with just a handful of games – 18 in total from a single developer – but we made sure that this small number of games had plenty of power. Just look at Platinum Lightning slot, it was one of our early games and it’s still one of our most popular games to this very day.
As our presence grew, so did our game collection. We wanted to have one of the biggest game selections out there, and now – on our 4th birthday – we are proud to have a game catalog that boasts over 1,000 titles. Through working relationships with Microgaming, NetEnt, BGAMING, Betsoft, Play’n GO, NextGen Gaming, iSoftBet, Spinomenal, and more than a dozen other game providers, it’s fair to say that developers have seen us as the perfect place to showcase their games.
More rewarding than ever before
When you’re a leading online casino, giving back to players is the aim of the game. As such, our payouts have gone from big to huge, with it raining cash on players for four years straight. The biggest win in our first year was around $40,000, this year we have already seen a win of more than $250,000. We’ve made countless players rich since we first kicked open our digital doors, as we stand by our “Dream Big, Win Bigger” motto, allowing us to make many of you “SuperStarz” in the process.
Since we first launched, it’s also been our goal to give players something more than just super-sized jackpots to play for. From our classic Fire up the Slots campaign – where we gave away a PlayStation 4 – to our latest swag-packed promotion in Treasure Island Adventure, there certainly aren’t many casinos that can rival us. Adele concert tickets, trips to the Maldives, the latest iPhones, and so much more, these once-in-a-lifetimes giveaways have become a BitStarz trademark. Our generous promotions aren’t going to stop just because we’ve reached our 4th birthday either, as we’re currently “kicking around” some huge promotion ideas for the future.
The future is bright, the future is BitStarz!
Turning four years old is a huge milestone. From day one players have seen us give everything to deliver a truly award-winning casino experience, but this far from the end of our journey. Mega jackpots, huge promotions, and more thrilling games are on the horizon, as BitStarz remains absolutely remain committed to being your favorite online casino.
The “Happy Birthday BitStarz!” messages have been much appreciated, but if you think that we’ve delivered a five-star casino experience so far, watch this space, as we’ve only just begun!
