Actually, if it wasn’t for the responsive and accommodating live chat support, we would have decided to drop this site from our list of online bitcoin casinos to review. We found a number of things that somehow made us think that the site is not trustworthy. For one, it has several URLs. It also uses multiple names. It’s not easy to trust a site especially when it immediately opens a page that asks you to log in.
It’s good that the Vulkan Casino live chat support staff quickly addressed our concerns. We had to make sure that the site can be considered a bitcoin gambling site. We also had to get the assurance that the different URLs we have encountered are not fake addresses intended for phishing. Obviously, we were satisfied with the answers we got from the live chat customer support representative so we are proceeding with this Vulkan Casino review.
The games on Vulkan Casino are presented according to the following categories: Popular, Novomatic, Igrosoft, Novamatic Delux, Others, and Casino Games. We’re not sure if this is a sensible way of presenting games. We would have preferred it if the games are presented according to game type.
- There are 33 games under Novomatic, all of which are slots.
- There are 15 Igrosoft games available. They are also slot games.
- The Novomatic Deluxe category has 12 games.
- The Others category has 15 games, all of which are also slots.
- There are 12 games under the Casino Games category. These include Blackjack, Deuces Wild, Oasis Poker, Joker Poker, European Roulette, American Roulette, Joker Wild, Caribbean Poker, and Three Card Poker.
That’s a total of 87 games on Vulkan Casino. According the site’s FAQ page, more games are expected to be added. The list of games available will grow over time.
The games have their respective pages that show their betting details, max factor, and details regarding the availability of free spins. They all have Play for Money and Play for Coin versions. These are basically the Play for Real and Play for Fun versions, in the words of other online casinos. All players get 2,000 coins to be used in the Play for Coins version of the games. These coins are not convertible to cash.
Game loading time is around average. If you play through the Play for Coins option, you will encounter in-page pop-ups that will try to convince you to play the Play for Money mode. These pop-ups disrupt the loading time of a game.
The problem with this prompt is that every time it appears, it no longer goes away. This prompt stays even if you no longer have problems with your Internet connection. Sometimes we even doubt if our connection was really disrupted. This prompt, at times, emerges randomly. It appeared even if we did not have Internet connection issues with the other programs we were running while doing this Vulkan Casino review. We were only able to return to the game by reloading the page, defying the instruction on the prompt not to reload the page because the connection will supposedly be restored automatically.
The currency used on Vulkan Casino is US dollar (USD). However, other currencies, including bitcoins, are accepted when making deposits. They are just automatically converted to USD.
There is a long list of deposit methods supported. These include Beeline, Megafon, MTC, Visa and MasterCard credit cards, WebMoney, Yandex.Money, Moneta.ru, W1, Skrill Moneybookers, Alpha-Click, Sberbank Online, Okpay, Bitcoin, Interkassa, Neteller, Okpay Visa/MasterCard, Payeer, Perfect Money, EXMO, Advcash, and cash terminals for players in Russia.
Bitcoin is arguably the best deposit method here because of its low minimum deposit requirement of only 1.00 USD and relatively high maximum deposit amount of 5,000 USD. Other payment options have significantly lower maximum limits at 30,000 RUB or less than 470 USD.
For withdrawals, the options available are Visa and MasterCard credit cards, WebMoney, Yandex.Money, Qiwi, Moneta.ru, Skrill Moneybookers, Okpay, and Neteller. Since there is no option for bitcoin withdrawals, obviously, you will only be able to get your winnings through the options mentioned here in USD. All of these withdrawal methods have the same minimum and maximum limits, at 5 USD and 300 USD respectively.
You may notice that there’s a tab called “Buy Virtual Currency” beside the “Depositing” tab. This is where you can get more coins. If you have already consumed the 2,000 coins you initially had, you can buy more through this tab. This does not mean, though, that that coins can be converted to real money or can be used for playing the real money version of the games. The coins remain as virtual currency or play money.
