Welcome to MegaWins Casino (Overview)
With cryptocurrencies becoming more and more popular, more people are beginning to enjoy the benefits of using services like Bitcoin. Fast transactions that can be carried out around the world and low fees make cryptocurrencies increasingly popular for online casino users. To meet demand, we’ve seen a rise in so-called ‘Bitcoin Casinos’.
Today, we take a look at MegaWins Bitcoin Casino and discuss whether it’s safe, secure and fair, while taking a look at all it has to offer. While it’s described as a Bitcoin casino, it does, in fact, support a variety of traditional fiat currencies as well.
Appearing in 2016, MegaWins Casino is licensed and regulated by the Curacao Gaming Committee and run by Direx N.V. It has been created on the ever popular SoftSwiss platform – one of the most reputable platforms used by Bitcoin casinos. A good start so far, but let’s take a closer look.
Well, it certainly looks like an online casino from the moment you arrive on their homepage, and a good one at that. While many casinos appear cluttered and difficult to navigate, MegaWins has taken a more minimalist approach, but still manages to present you with all the information you will need. The majority of the homepage is taken up by a large slideshow that uses simple and attractive graphics and promotes the various bonuses.
The header contains links to the casino, VIP area and promotions page, as well as search function and a big green button to create a new account. The homepage also showcases a number of featured games, that can be separated by genre. Below that you can see more information on the VIP program and right at the bottom are a number of useful links – about page, FAQ, terms and conditions etc.
The casino is clear and very easy to navigate, both on mobile and desktop devices. Your favorite games can be easily located using the filters or the search function and all the most important areas are easily accessible.

There’s also a range of stylish live dealer games from industry leader, Ezugi. These are immersive, fun and fair and load up quickly.

To start with, they offer a 150% welcome bonus up to $/€1,000 plus a whopping 180 free spins. The bonus is divided into a 100% first deposit bonus and 140 free spins spread over the course of a week, followed by a 50% second deposit bonus and a further 40 free spins.

Is it Safe, Fair and Secure?
According to the help center, the website is encrypted using the highest industry standard technology. All information sent and received on the website is secure, keeping your private details safe from hackers. The casino is also protected against DOS attacks, so it shouldn’t suffer downtime or lag. All payments are carried out through verified and secure gateways, so you can be sure your cash is safe too.
As stipulated by the Curacao Gaming Committee, MegaWins Casino operates a ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) program. This means that users may be required to provide further proof of their ID, by sending copies to the security team, as well as other documents that can verify your ID, such as utility bills. The process is secure and typically takes less than 24 hours.
The games available on the casino are all from reputable developers so you can be sure they are all provably fair. As a further measure, the casino is regulated by the Curacao Gaming Committee, who carry out regular checks on the casinos operating under their license.
Overall, we had a very positive experience with MegaWins Casino. It was really easy to set up an account and make a deposit, allowing us to start playing within minutes. The site is well designed, looks great and flows nicely – you’re unlikely to struggle to find the section you need. If you do need help at all, they offer 24/7 customer support via live chat, which is always easily accessed in the bottom right corner.
There’s a great range of reputable, fair games to suit all tastes, tight security and safe payment channels that support a range of currencies including Bitcoin. The only potential downsides are that the KYC process may put some users off, however, it does provide additional security.
