It is, ultimately, the dream of any casino player: landing that huge, life-changing jackpot prize. Sadly, most of us assume that it is a pipedream that will remain elusive until the end of time. But that simply is not the case.
As the old adage goes, you can’t win a lottery without buying a ticket, and so the mere act of playing a jackpot slot game like 5 Reel Drive gives you a mathematical chance of hitting the big win – more of a chance, indeed, than if you never play.
You’ll often read or hear about big-money winners, and remember, they are folks just like you who thought, “hey, you never know what just might happen!”
Whether playing at a brick-and-mortar casino or online, there is that magic moment when your heart dances. "Can this be right?" You think to yourself, checking the reels once more. "Yes, I’ve won! I've won the jackpot!"
Just check the bottom of our main page for an updated list of all those lucky players who joined in the fun right here at Bitcasino, to leave with a massive, life-changing changing sum of money. Imagine being in their shoes: what would you spend the money on? If you ever do win big, what actually happens next?
Get in touch
The first thing to do when you believe that you have won big is to contact the customer support team at your chosen casino. For peace of mind, you can contact our team via live chat or email at any time, and we will respond to your query as soon as possible.
The customer support officer will verify your win and ensure that none of the terms and conditions have been breached. There are also very rare instances when the game may have malfunctioned, though this typically happens in brick-and-mortar casinos rather than online (see below for more information on that).
Don’t forget, if your big win comes about via a bonus, then you will still need to clear the wagering requirements before you can “cash out”. If you have any queries about this, then make contact with customer support or check the terms and conditions on our 'About bonuses' page.
Getting your hands on the goods
For reasons of security, as with most casinos, there may be terms and conditions in place that could have some impact on your win.
For any withdrawal of funds to be processed, you will have to wait until the deposit has received three confirmations through the blockchain before it can be verified.
Deposits made using the BTCXE service can take longer to confirm as the security of the transaction has to be processed and approved.
Stay patient, as the good times are just around the corner!
Huge prize wins may also be subject to further hoops. Some casinos will only allow you to withdraw a certain amount per day, while others have a safety net in place that enables them to pay you a certain amount per week until the whole prize has been paid.
Here at Bitcasino, we allow you to withdraw m฿ 50,000 per day, but the good news is that you can always return for more tomorrow.
The beauty of playing at a Bitcoin casino, of course, is that your winnings will be paid directly into your wallet, rather than having to wait for credit/debit card transactions to be processed or risking any unnecessary fees on your winnings. We beleive that the money you earn should go straight to you with as little fuss as possible, that's why we love the ease and speed of cryptocurrencies.
Computer says no
One of the good things about winning big online, as opposed to in a real-world casino, is that you are highly unlikely to fall foul of the “machine malfunction” defence, which can actually render a mammoth payout null and void.
That’s exactly what happened to one US woman, who thought that she had won the best part of $43m after landing the jackpot on the Sphinx slot game at Resorts World Casino in New York back in 2016.
The worst part is that the error wasn’t explained until the next morning when she went to collect her winnings – imagine how many millions she had already spent in her head overnight!
To make matters worse, rather than settling for a much smaller sum, the casino’s sole offer of consolation was a steak dinner.
Upon appeal, the New York State Gaming Commission found that she was only entitled to her actual winnings, which were $2.25 – not even enough for a Big Mac, ironically.
The good news is that you will not suffer this fate with Bitcasino. All of our games are monitored for their reliability and fairness by OneTouch, our gaming partner.
Nobody wins big in their first session…right?
Remember, all slot games are governed by a Random Number Generator (RNG), which ensures that they are completely fair and pay out according to the Return to Player (RTP) ratio specified – so, yes, it is absolutely possible to win big immediately after signing up for a new player account at an online casino.
Indeed, there are many examples of such an occurrence taking place. How about the guy who won a cool £6.3m within the hour of registering at a casino?
The punter, known only as Neil, was spinning the reels on his laptop in the kitchen of his home in Scotland when he landed the ludicrous payday. It remains one of the largest payouts in UK gaming history.
This is no impossible fairy tale, this could easily be you.
