Argo Casino First impressions
From the same owners of Zig Zag 777, JocSolutions Limited, is another slots-based bitcoin casino, Argo Casino. It displays the same penchant for modern and updated slots games from a great variety of providers many will be familiar with such as Microgaming and Endorphina, but also from some smaller providers such as Lightning Box Games, Thunderkick and ELK Studios.
The same issues were faced when using Adblock and script blockers, as the site streams a lot of Flash-embedded games, but there seems to be a workaround if you’re willing to download a dedicated casino software to play directly from. We’re not against the idea of this option – it’s a great way to offer more to players who want to invest more time into the casino, but this shouldn’t come at a cost to browser-only gamblers.
To us, the claims of “gameplay stability”, “maximum protection of personal information” and “games download speed” serves less as an advertisement for the dedicated software than it does as an unwitting list of why you shouldn’t play at their website.
The choices available to the slot gambler at Argo Casino are very decent, with hundreds of titles to choose from. You can settle for classic slots under the Retro section or spin your credits at games added frequently to the New and Popular Sections. Fan of DC Comics and can also find their favourite superheroes in titular slots like Green Lantern and Batman.
There’s an average selection of other non-slots games under Table Games but they’re limited and dated. The eight Live Dealers games only serve to break the monotony for a while as they’re all Roulette games provided by NetEnt.
As mentioned, accessing the site can be problematic with loading content. We found several games that simply refused to load. The mobile version adjusts well to any screen size and orientation but navigation becomes a bother.
Unlike its sister site, Argo Casino doesn’t seem to have any certification on their random number generation. Without provably fair systems, this can cause a few concerns for customer confidence.
Payments and Bonuses
Argo Casino lets you deposit in several fiat currencies including EUR, RUB and PLN via credit card and other online payment processors. Watch out, however, as withdrawals are only processed through Visa or Skrill – meaning that if you intend to use Bitcoin, you’d better prepare a Visa account to collect your winnings!
Minimum deposits are EUR 10 and there’s no limit to how much you can load your account with, but make sure you wager deposits once to avoid the 10% withdrawal fee. If you have at least EUR 20 in your account, you can withdraw it with a 24-hour wait once your identity is confirmed. Withdrawal limits are set at EUR 1,500 daily and EUR 20,000 monthly.
The Bonus structure is also more a less a mirror of Zig Zag 777, with a 100% First Deposit bonus of up to EUR 200, a Weekend 40% bonus of up to EUR 1,000 and a weekly 30% bonus of up to EUR 500. You must make a minimum deposit of EUR 10 and wager the bonuses 40 times.
Loyal players earn Loyalty Points for every EUR 50 wagered at slots and can request 15% cashback on nett losses. These are all exchanged for bonus money that have the same 40 times rollover requirement.
Even if you somehow are playing from a country that’s allowed (US, UK, Canada and a whole list of other countries restricted from play), you might be put off by the need to download the casino software if you don’t want to be plagued by connection issues and content errors. We did find out from Live Support (after a one-hour wait) that you will receive 10 Free Spins from downloading the software, however, so it could be worth the trouble just for that.START PLAYING NOW
