4Grinz Casino is a relatively new addition to the online gambling world which is brought to you by a company named SoftSwiss N.V. This company is based out of the country of Curacao and they own a collection of 8 casinos which just goes to show that they are not rookies in the online gaming industry.
The defining feature of 4Grinz Casino is that they are a Bitcoin-only casino with extremely fast withdrawal times. They also offer games from a ton of different software providers such as Betsoft, BGAMING, Ezugi, Amatic Industries, Endorphina, GameArt, and Booming Games. Now let’s take a look at some of the common features that make up an online casino and see how this innovative Bitcoin casino measures up against their competition.
4Grinz Casino does not appear to have any gaming license at all which is slightly worrisome. However, this is actually pretty standard for Bitcoin casinos, since there are no third-party financial institutions involved. The reason for this is that Bitcoin casinos are still a relatively new internet phenomenon and legal jurisdictions have not caught on to the popularity of these sites just yet.
When we asked the customer support team about this, they claimed that they are licensed under the laws of the country of Curacao through their casino software provider SoftSwiss. This company is a respected part of the online gambling community and they also provide software for other gambling sites such as mBit Casino and BetChain Casino. It is also comforting to see that their games have been proven fair by iTechLabs, a well-respected auditing company.
Nonetheless, we do not recommend leaving a ton of money sitting on this site due to the lack of gaming license as well as the fact they have been blacklisted by a review site or two across the internet. To their credit, they do appear to be active in replying to players who have disputes and we feel that this site is trustworthy enough to play on.
There is no downloadable client to worry about with 4Grinz Casino, so the only thing left to analyze is their web-based client and their website. Overall we are quite pleased with the appearance and functionality of the games on 4Grinz Casino, even though the loading times might be a bit slow at times due to the high level of graphics that some of the games have.
The website of 4Grinz Casino looks very classy and we can tell that they put a ton of effort into designing it. However, there are a few flaws such as conflicting terms and conditions and there is also a broken link to their Player Rewards page which their customer support team assured us they will fix as soon as possible. They should also try to fill in their empty “Lottery Games” and “Live Dealer Games” sections as soon as possible since it looks pretty unprofessional to have empty sections in their game library.
Slot Providers: Betsoft Gaming, BGAMING, Endorphina
Slot Betting Limits: 0.001 mBTC to 20 mBTC
The slot games on 4Grinz Casino are the only place where you will find betting increments that are in terms of Bitcoin. The maximum and minimum limits on bets in these 150+ slot games are rather low which is great for low rollers who have some extra Bitcoin laying around.
Even though Endorphina games are the only ones who are not all available from a mobile device, this says a lot about the high quality of graphics involved with these games. We have become big fans of games made by Endorphina because the player return on all of them is advertised at around 96% which relatively high for a slot game. On top of this, Endorphina slots often have exciting bonus round features with high quality graphics which makes for a fun online gaming experience.
Primary Table Games Offered: Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Caribbean Poker, Pai Gow, Oasis Poker, Poker3 Heads Up Hold’em, Red Dog, 3 Card Rummy, Triple Edge Poker, Ride’Em Poker, Draw Hi-Lo, Top Card Trumps
Primary Table Games Not Offered: War, Ultimate Hold’em
4Grinz Casino really sets itself apart from other Bitcoin casinos with their table games selection. While those other sites are mainly focusing on slot games or video poker games, 4Grinz decided to include a total of 13 different card games and five different types of roulette to round out their library.
While most of these 18 table games are usually found in a ton of other casinos, there are also a couple of unique games which give this section a nice balance. For example, Poker3 Heads Up Hold’em will allow you to play heads-up Texas Hold’em against the dealer which is pretty rare to find.
Baccarat Betting Limits: $1 to $100 per hand
The only version of Baccarat that you will find on 4Grinz Casino is the classic version that you can find in nearly every casino around the world. The only real difference is that this version appears to be meant for low stakes players since $100 betting limit per hand is one of the lowest that we have ever seen.
Types of Blackjack Offered: Super 7 Blackjack, Single Deck Blackjack, 21 Burn Blackjack, Pontoon, Pirate 21 Blackjack, European Blackjack
Blackjack Betting Limits: $1 to $100 per hand
With six different types of Blackjack to play, you will have a hard time not finding a variation that you enjoy playing. However, if you are a high roller you might not enjoy this selection since the maximum bet is only $100 per hand which is once again the lowest that we have ever seen.
Types of Roulette Offered: Common Draw Roulette, European Roulette, VIP American Roulette, VIP European Roulette, Zoom Roulette
Roulette Betting Limits: $3 to $1,000 per spin
There are a total of five different variations of roulette to play on 4Grinz Casino which is great to see if you are a fan of this popular table game. If you are a high roller you might want to make your way to the VIP variations which come with a maximum bet of $1,000 per spin and a minimum bet of $10 per spin. The non-VIP variations of roulette come with a minimum bet of $3 per spin and a maximum bet of $500 per spin.
Video Poker Games Offered: Joker Poker, Double Bonus, Deuces and Jokers, Deuces Wild, Double Joker, Five Draw Poker, Jacks or Better, Split Way Royal, Tens or Better, Bonus Deuces, Bonus Poker
Video Poker Betting Limits: $0.01 to $0.50 per hand
Following their pattern of well-roundedness, 4Grinz Casino decided to include a total of 11 different video poker games in their game library. These 11 games are all pretty standard video poker games that you will find in most casinos, with the exception of Split Way Royal.
Once again, this selection of games caters specifically to small stakes players since the most that you can beat on each hand is $0.50. Nearly every casino we have reviewed allows you to bet up to $25 per hand in video poker so if you are a high rolling video poker player you might want to look for a different online casino to play on.
There are two specialty games which do not fit into any of the other categories and they are listed under the “Casual” section. We expected there to be a Keno variation or two in the “Lottery” section of the game library on 4Grinz, but this section is currently empty.
The first specialty game is Virtual Racebook 3D which is basically a horse-racing video game where you can bet real money on the outcome of each race. The second specialty game named Scratcherz is simply a collection of nine different scratch cards which are all exactly like the scratch cards you can find at your local gas stations. The cost of these cards ranges anywhere from $1 to $5 depending on which type you choose.
There are currently no Live Dealer games available on 4Grinz Casino, but the strange thing is that they have a Live Dealer section in their game library. The fact that this empty section exists can only mean that they plan on adding in some Live Dealer games in the near future.
There is no mobile app for you to download if you wish to access 4Grinz Casino from your mobile device. All you need to do is go to their website using your mobile web browser and log-in to your account and you will have access to most of the casino games that are available. All of the games that you can play from your mobile device will be slot games, but about half of the slot games made by software provider Endorphina are for desktop computer use only.
Every player who signs up on 4Grinz Casino will be eligible to participate in the Welcome Package which rewards the first three deposits made on each account. However, these bonuses are totally optional so you can avoid them if you do not like what you see in our Bonus Terms and Conditions section.
On your first deposit, you will be greeted with a 100% match bonus of up to 0.200 BTC if you use the bonus code “WELCOME”. The second deposit you make will include a 50% match deposit bonus of up to 0.100 BTC with the bonus code “IMBACK”. The third and final deposit of this Welcome Package will reward you with a 30% match bonus for up to 0.066 BTC using the bonus code “RELOAD”. You will be able to repeat this deposit bonus up to one time per day for as many days as you wish.
4Grinz Casino is not big on the idea of offering a bunch of promotions to their players since there are only two other promotions to be found here. However, the rewards program appears to be very lucrative for regular players on 4Grinz Casino. The only issue we have with their promotions program besides the small number of promotions is that none of the bonus money you receive is withdrawable and they will simply confiscate those funds once you complete your playthrough requirements.
No matter which day of the week you find yourself gambling on 4Grinz Casino you will also be able to find yourself a nice daily bonus to take advantage of. All of these bonuses, with the exception of the Wednesday Humpday bonus, will require you to be at least a Premium VIP Member which is rather unfortunate for players who have not yet reached that first level of the VIP program.
The Monday bonus is a 50% match deposit bonus for up to 0.1 BTC using the bonus code “MONDAY50”. Unfortunately, this bonus comes with a maximum withdrawal of 0.050 BTC.
The Tuesday bonus is called Twitter Tuesday since all you have to do is post a positive tweet about 4Grinz Casino and submit a link to your post to the customer support team via the Live Chat feature. Once you do this, you will receive 10 free spins on any game of your choice. The only problem is that the maximum withdrawal from these free spins is 0.001 BTC which is pretty lame.
The Wednesday bonus is a 75% match deposit bonus of up to 0.166 BTC using the bonus code “HUMPDAY”. The maximum withdrawal for this bonus is 3x the amount you deposited.
The Thursday bonus is known as the Joy Luck Club Thursday bonus since you must belong to the prestigious Joy Luck Club to participate. This bonus is a 50% match deposit bonus for up to 0.100 BTC will automatically be credited to your account, but once again the maximum withdrawal is limited to 0.050 BTC.
The Friday bonus is simply 10 free spins on any game of your choice as long as you deposit at least 0.001 BTC using the bonus code “FRIDAYSPINS”. The maximum withdrawal from these free spins winnings is set at 0.010 BTC which is not very high at all and follows the re-occurring theme that 4Grinz just wants you to use their bonus promotions for fun and not for profit.
The Saturday bonus is simply a game chip worth 0.003 BTC which can be wagered on any game of your choice once activated. As usual, this 0.003 BTC will be deducted from your final winnings which is limited to a disappointing 0.009 BTC.
The Sunday Bonus is a 30% match deposit bonus for up to 0.060 BTC and it can be used as many times as you like on any given Sunday. Predictably, the maximum cash out if set at 3x the amount you deposited.
The key ingredient that makes up the Rewards Program is known as Grinz Points which are earned from the minute you begin playing in the casino games on 4Grinz Casino. One type of Grinz Points you will earn are known as Redeemable Grinz Points, which can be traded in for bonuses, tournament entries, coupons, or free spins. The other type of Grinz Points are called Status Grinz Points which simply determine your VIP status.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to redeem any of your Grinz Points until you reach the Premium VIP level. The only way to get to this Premium VIP level is to wager at least $2,000 or 0.200 BTC in bets on any of the casino games available on 4Grinz Casino.
After the Premium Level VIP, your next stop on the Rewards Program will be the Joy Luck Club VIP level once you have earned 1,500 Grinz Points. This VIP level comes with TWO days per week where you will get 10% of your deposit back, even when you are a winner! This is one of the few times that we have ever seen a cashback deal for players who are winners so this is obviously a great deal.
Following that, you will come to the VIP Red, VIP Gold, and VIP Black levels. Every time you move up a tier you will receive an increasing amount of benefits including free spins, slot tournaments, tier-exclusive drawings, contests, deposit bonuses, and giveaways.
The playthrough requirements for every deposit bonus that you will come across on 4Grinz Casino is 45x the amount of the bonus you received. For example, if you deposited 0.1 BTC for your very first deposit of the Welcome Package and received 0.1 BTC in bonus funds, you will need to wager a total of 4.5 BTC before you can withdraw any funds. This is right around the average level of difficulty that you will come across when clearing an online casino’s bonus promotions.
It is important to know that the minimum deposit you can make when participating in any and all bonuses on 4Grinz Casino is 0.001 BTC. Conversely, the maximum amount that you can deposit is 0.200 BTC. No matter how much you deposited, you will only be permitted to bet up to 0.002 BTC per round or hand while clearing a bonus.
One of the clauses we found to be unsatisfactory is that any bonus money is non-withdrawable and will be deducted from your final winnings. They are already offering games where they have an edge so they should not be confiscating bonus funds that come with playthrough requirements on top of that. However, we do like the fact that there is no maximum cashout imposed on your winnings from these bonuses.
Another concerning aspect of the bonus promotions on 4Grinz Casino is that all Live Casino games, roulette games, blackjack games, pai gow games, keno games, baccarat games and jackpot games are completely forbidden. This means that while you have an active bonus you can basically only participate in slot games, which is obviously unacceptable. The only good part about this is that 100% of the wagers that you make on these slot games will contribute towards completing the playthrough requirements for your current bonus.
Customer Support Options: Support Form, Live Chat
There are only two ways to contact the customer support team on 4Grinz Casino which is below average but still acceptable. The support form method of communication is rather outdated and you do not see it very often while the Live Chat method is extremely popular these days.
When we went to test out the Live Chat feature, we were pleasantly surprised to be talking to a customer service representative within 3 seconds. The fact that this feature works so well more than makes up for the lack of an email address or a phone number to contact them by.
Since the Live Chat feature is so fast, there is really no reason at all to use the Support Form. Nonetheless, if Live Chat is for some reason not functioning properly you can access the Support Form by clicking on the “Support” link at the bottom of their webpage and they will email you a response to your problem once they get to it.
Minimum Deposit: N/A
Maximum Deposit: N/A
Deposit Methods: Bitcoin
Withdrawal Methods: Bitcoin
4Grinz is a textbook example of a Bitcoin casino since that is the only deposit option that they offer. The best way to get yourself some Bitcoin (BTC) is to sign up on a Bitcoin exchange site such as Coinbase.
Once you have your Bitcoin ready to go you simply need to send them to the Bitcoin address that can be found in your account cashier after clicking on the “Deposit” button in the upper right-hand corner of the page. There does not appear to be any minimum or maximum limit to how many Bitcoins you can deposit. You should always double-check that you got the Bitcoin address correct or else your money will disappear into thin air.
After you have done a bit of gambling and you wish to withdraw some of your funds, the only option that you can use is going to be Bitcoin once again. Unlike when you deposited Bitcoin, there are going to be some restrictions on how much you can withdraw.
The minimum withdrawal for each transaction is set at 0.002 BTC while the maximum withdrawal that you can order is 7 BTC. However, the terms and conditions state that the most money that you are allowed to withdraw per day is 5000 Euros worth of Bitcoin. Any amount higher than this will require them to create a payment plan where they will honor your withdrawal over a certain unspecified period of time.
The speed with which both deposits and withdrawal are completed is listed as INSTANTLY in the account cashier. This is impossible for any other casino to beat and we feel that this is the most appealing feature of 4Grinz Casino. No one likes to wait weeks for their money to arrive and it is comforting to know that that will never happen here.
