New casinos keep popping up and here are four that I have recently come across. There is some good stuff so let’s get excited.
Fun Themes and a Bright Future
I’m normally quite skeptical when looking at new casinos that have popped up. It’s probably based on the fact that I find it so rare that any of them stick out in any way instead of being just another copy of what’s already out there.
It might sound a bit negative but the reason I’m saying this is because this time I actually felt excited about all of the new casinos I discovered and I can see some of them becoming popular.
Just to clear things up, when I say new casinos, it doesn’t always mean brand new from this month. Sometimes casinos show up on my radar and are therefore new for me, although some of them may have been around for a while.
Immediately after setting foot on the Stelario website I sensed they had something good going and I am honestly curious to see where this is heading. Right away you are greeted by warm, soothing purple colors that set an uplifting tone and after having made my way around the site, I saw quite a few good things.
With a Curacao license, these guys say that they “bring its players only the best online games available and an unforgettable gambling experience at Live Casino, so you are guaranteed to be entertained to the max”. Ok, it’s a confident statement but I like the confidence.
I’m not entirely sure the theme is consistent throughout the site as I see a lot of space influences like planets and rockets but it’s mixed with a gigantic octopus and other things but let’s not make a big deal out of it.
The fact is that Stelario has been around since 2020 but this is the first time I have come across them but I’m glad I did.
Big Selection of Games
There is a lot going on on the site and I am all for it but let’s start off by taking a look at the game selection. I did find mixed information about the amount of games available as one section said 3,000 while another said 4,100.
Regardless of the correct number, it’s a solid collection and a lot more than you’ll ever need. Having a lot of games is attractive and will keep you a step ahead of casinos with less.
I haven’t seen this selection before and I think it’s great
Broken Down Into Sections
One thing I liked about it is the sections in which the games have been divided. Depending on your preference, it’s easy to find games with high volatility, a buy feature, tumbling reels, megaways or whatever else you might be looking for.
Stelario has already done the job for you and you don’t need to waste time searching for them. Very appreciated if you ask me.
Providers with Amount of Games
Another thing I really liked is the fact that they show how many games that come from each of the 78 game providers.
Plenty of Promotions
For players needing something extra to spice things up, there is plenty to choose from in the promotions department.
How about starting your journey with a 100% bonus up to €100 + 100 Free Spins on Fire in the Hole xBomb on your first deposit.
There are more bonuses waiting for the two deposits after that, so get all you can and make the most of your Stelario adventure.
Promotions to Keep You Going
As many as 9 different promotions are constantly running and will keep your competitive edge activated all week long.
There’s the August Spin Win Quest with a prize pool of €10,000 as well as the Weekly Star Bonus of 75% + 240 Free Spins.
When those are done and dusted, you can indulge in the Wednesday Bonus where you can get another 60% up to €300.
Hold On, There’s More
On top of all that you can scoop up another Reload Bonus of 60% + 100 Free Spins before using the Weekly Cashback as back up, where you’ll get 10% up to €500 coming back to you.
Without an attractive VIP program you will lose out on a lot of good players so I’m glad to see one.
The more you play, the better your rewards and privileges will get. As you advance through e VIP levels, you will receive higher withdrawal limits, lower wagering requirements on bonuses and higher cashback percentages.
It’s all part of the Stelario VIP program.
I really like how the site is built and it is easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. Besides what you can read about above, there is a shop for all the coins you collect along the way as well as tournaments that will bring out the competitor in you.
Promotions and tournaments are a big deal so I hope they can keep that up and even add some more.
Stelario has been around for a couple of years now and I hope they can continue to develop their product because it has potential and I think players will like it.
If I was quickly excited about Stelario, I had a tougher time feeling the pull from Bitsler. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why but perhaps it’s the gray color that dulls the site down.
Design isn’t everything and after giving it a second look a bit later on, I realized it wasn’t as bad as I first thought and I actually didn’t mind it.
On the brighter side, there is a lot going on at Bitsler and whether you prefer Casino, Esport or regular Sport betting, Bitsler is a one-stop-shop for all of it. I can definitely respect that!
Being able to offer a lot of options in terms of crypto makes a huge difference these days and while Bitsler started off with only the biggest coins, you can pick from 20 of them right now. Nice!
48 Quality Providers
There’s definitely quality in the games and you will find most of the ones you’ll see at other casinos. Bitsler is working closely with as many as 48 game providers to make sure players are happy and I’m sure they are.
Popular Game Shows
Besides the regular game sections like slots, table games and the ever so popular Game Show games, there is another area that caught my attention this time.
It’s the fact that Bitsler has an entire section that they decided to name that’s right, Bitsler Games.
As a matter of fact, there seem to be two names for these games because they are called both Bitsler Games as well as Alternative Games. This doesn’t bother me and when you go into either one of them, you will find 19 different games.
Twist, Keno or Boom
The following ones are ready to show you what they can do: Twist, Keno, Boom, Dice, Plinko, Fruitsler, Blackjack, Roulette, Crypto Thugs (great name btw), Baccarat, Video Poker, Chests, Flash Roulette, Hilo, Dicey 7’s, Dice, Cara y Cruz and Multicolor.
Take Blast for a spin
All of these games are great and I love the fact there are so many of them. There is one of them that sticks out a bit for me and feels a bit different from what you can find at other casinos and that game is Blast.
We’re Off to the Moon
Just like many of you, I have played games like Crash for example and even though I can see the entertainment in it, it is extremely basic. This is what I love about Blast.
The graphics are actually quite nice as your journey through the galaxy and towards the moon continues. It gives you a feeling of that beginning climb of a roller coaster before reaching the top and the dive begins. Can you imagine the drop on this one if it was real? Wow!
Weirdly enough it was a beautiful explosion
Will You Make it?
Flaming meteors will fly past you and as long as they don’t hit you, your multiplier will increase. However, if you think you will make it all the way to the moon, I hate to break it to you but you won’t make it.
Sooner or later you will be hit and not only does your multiplier come to a halt, the explosion that occurs, as horrible as it is, it actually looks very nice. Good job, Bitsler!
Take your pick from the biggest sports and the hottest leagues around the world. If sports isn’t your favorite but you still enjoy that type of betting, why don’t you take a swing at politics or music? It’s all an option at Bitsler.
The final piece of the 3-headed casino monster is Esports and you will have your choice from the mainstream tournaments like Dota 2, Counter Strike and League of Legends.
There are a lot more options as well so don’t hesitate to take a look for yourself.
I like the fact that all three areas of a casino are available here as I enjoy mixing my gambling. I think it’s a smart move because there’s a bigger chance I will play if the options are there, than having to go to another casino to place a sports bet for example.
They say first impressions last but I have changed my mind since the first glance and I can see the potential here, especially with this many crypto options. Keep it up, Bitsler!
Is that Tony the Tiger’s better looking cousin right there? Look at this guy sitting in his chair while soaking in the attention and respect from his admirers. He gets your respect without asking for it and I can just see this guy walking down the street in slow motion with the wind in his hair, stopping traffic.
Jokes aside, CryptoLeo looks like a cool character and I have always encouraged this type of branding.
Next-Generation High-Tech Casino
Calling themselves a next-generation high-tech casino comes with some pressure but I like the ambitiousness.
There seems to be 4 areas that CryptoLeo wants to push and they are:
- Prompt Payouts
- Being a licensed casino
- More than 6,000 games
- 24/7 Support
All of these are positives and besides a set number of games, something that players expect these days.
Rakeback Instead of a Bonus
CryptoLeo has chosen to differentiate itself from most other casinos when it comes to the welcome bonus and instead of giving out deposit bonuses or free spins, it’s all about Rakeback.
The Rakeback is an exclusive CryptoLeo benefit and essentially lowers the amount of money you spend by giving you a bit of every bet back. It is calculated as a return percentage on each of your bets. The more you wager the higher the winnings and it caps at 25%.
There are different levels with different Rakebacks, just keep in mind that they are only applicable to slots.
This is a lot less options than what is being offered at Bitsler but if the ones you prefer to use are among the 8 mentioned above then that’s all that matters.
Long List of Providers
As you can see, the list of providers is long and most of the big names like Pragmatic Play, Nolimit City and Play’n GO are in place. Then there are quite a few that I am not yet familiar with, such as Spribe, Kagaming, Gamomat and Foxium.
It’s always good to have a nice mix and with more providers come a wider spread of games and themes, which is needed.
One thing that I found at CryptoLeo that I think all casinos should do is show the amount of games there are. If you look at the top right corner of these images, next to View All, it says the number of games that are in that specific category.
There are 152 live games
I think this is a nice gesture to all players and even though it might not make a difference in the end, I like it. There are for example 15 Crash games, 3,033 slots, 48 slots with Megaways and 54 with a Bonus Buy. Good information, right?
You can take part in the first ever CryptoLeo tournament. As of now, this is the only promotion available but you have to start somewhere, right?
There’s still time left and with 5,000 USDT up for grabs, it might be worth considering.
It’s the branding that stands out for me and for some reason, not every casino puts an effort into branding. With that said, it doesn’t mean everything is automatically great. I think CryptoLeo has something here but there is a lot that is still missing to take things to the next level.
You can’t depend solely on having a lot of games because players often need some extra motivation to keep them going, which is where promotions come in. So far, this is an area that needs developing and besides CryptoLeo himself, the rest of the site looks a bit too basic
However, no need to be a Karen so let’s give the King of the jungle some time and see where he takes things for here.
Speaking of branding, how fun is the initiative around Rolling Slots? For copyright purposes, I understand the people behind it couldn’t go too close to Mick Jagger and the boys and had to settle for the less similar band members we get to see in the image above.
On the other hand, doesn’t the drummer remind you a lot of Dave Grohl?
Rock ‘N Roll for All Players
The inspiration behind the brand besides the obvious Rolling Stones were Pink Floyd and Aerosmith. Since the people behind it were also massive casino fans, they thought of a way to combine their two biggest passions.
An idea was born and in 2021 Rolling Slots was born and the goal is to offer players a reckless and carefree atmosphere.
I like the fact that there are a lot of details on the site and they are all connected to the brand and music. Records, mics, drums and other very recognizable symbols tie it all together in a very nice way.
In contrast to CryptoLeo and some of the others, Rolling Slots are still young and haven’t been able to build up as big of a provider roster.
So far, there are only 12 of them but they are all big names so the quality of the 1,000 available games is as good as it gets.
Instead of putting all focus on the games, you will see more effort in the promotion department. I don’t think this is a bad idea at all and often, good promotions can make a difference in attracting players instead of just showing you have a ton of games.
Weekend Reload Bonus up to €250
Weekly Reload Bonus up to €300
Rolling Cashback up to €200
Welcome Bonus up to €500 + 100 Free Spins
Enough to Start
For now, these 4 promotions are driving the bus but I think that’s enough to start off with. You can get rewarded on Mondays, Wednesdays and just in time for the weekend.
Visit the Shop
There is a shop that’s open for business whenever you want and as you keep playing, the more coins you will earn and be able to spend.
You can redeem your coins and get free spins, cash bonuses or unusual skins in return.
Rolling Slots Loyalty Club
For players who want the full VIP experience, there is a Loyalty Club program that can help you with that.
Very smart move to utilize the theme and put records on the wall of the Loyalty Club. After all, if you want to feel like a rockstar, what better way than to have records on the wall.
The records represent the 5 levels and you will start with the classic vinyl and work your way up to the platinum. Will each of them come with a bonus tune? Join the program and find out.
I applaud the rock ‘n roll theme and even though I think Rolling Slots will have a hard time competing with many of the other casinos, I think it’s a fun option if you are into this type of music.
Well done for sticking to your two biggest passions and I wish you well.
More to Come
These casinos are only a few of the “new” ones I have recently come across and I hope I get a chance to present some more on a monthly basis.
Knowing what else is out there is always important and I’m glad to be able to help get you that information and present it to you.
Feel free to give these casinos a shot and let me know what you think about them.
