KatsuBet Casino appeared at the end of 2020, when most of the countries were trying to cope with COVID-19 via lockdowns. The KatsuBet website is designed in an oriental style, and the name hints at a pun: it’s both the hieroglyph “katsu”, which means “to win”, and an association with the national Japanese dish Chicken Katsu. This casino is operated by Dama NV under a Curaçao licence.
To register on the operator’s website, you need to take four steps. The 1st is to enter your e-mail, come up with a secure password and choose the currency you plan to play in. The 2nd step – to indicate your first name, last name, date of birth, phone number, gender and Bonus code, if you have one. In the 3rd step, you need to specify the country, city, address & postal code. Slow check-in in our opinion.
Unlike some online casinos where you need to download special soft to play on the site, KatsuBet provides gamblers with direct access to the games. Simply download the operator’s web-site on your PC, smartphone, laptop or tablet and any game is at your disposal immediately (except for games that are restricted in your country of residence due to provider policy). Games’re optimized for any gadget & computer screen size & for any popular operating system. We consider it a minus that the casino doesn’t have its own specially designed mobile app, but even on the site the weight of the games is quite small & provides gamblers with an uninterrupted game even in case of a weak internet connection.
At the time of writing the KatsuBet Casino review, the online casino cooperates with almost seven dozen providers, including NetEnt, Microgaming and not very big but successful studios like BGaming, Endorphina, etc. Unfortunately, not all providers are available in Canada, for example, NYX games aren’t available.
As for the games offered, the operator itself writes on its official website that a gambler can choose from 7000 games, but at the time of writing this review (we counted!) the operator offers 1700+ slots, the same number of BTC games, 105 games with jackpots, 59 board games and 3 live games. Although this’s a lot, it’s hard to imagine that in total there are 7000 games. Of course, we’d like the Katsu Bet team to update the ‘About Us’ info if the game range changes.
Large selection of providers. Each game has a demo version that allows us to play without real money bets. Gamblers try to play for free when they need to “get acquainted” with a new slot or try a new strategy or just pause the excitement.
Among the modest number of games, you can find three or four varieties of roulette, poker, keno, sic bo, blackjack, baccarat and other games. Not bad, but nothing special either. Familiar games, proven providers, but the range is small.
Here we have something to say. But before expressing our point of view, we remind you that no review is the last resort, because the range of games & the rules in an online casino can change faster than the review site updates its material. At the time of writing this review, we found an incomprehensible detail. The KatsuBet casino site offers 2 sections dedicated to live games – the 1st one (the “Live” section) is located just below the bonus banners on the main page, & the 2nd one (the ‘Live Dealer Casino’ section) is in the footer of the website. We expected that in these sections we would find familiar games with a live dealer (especially since Evolution is among partner providers), but there gamblers will find completely different games in a very modest amount – three pieces. Hopefully, KatsuBet will fix this.
The operator’s in the top lines of the “hit parade” by the generosity of the welcome bonus. We will tell you more below. Other bonuses are also offered, which periodically replace each other. For more info, please, visit the official web site of Katsu Bet & check out the bonuses offered by the operator. At the time of writing this review, the bonuses described below are available to Katsu Bet gamblers.
Gamblers must deposit at least twenty CAD to receive the bonus. Other currencies are also allowed, including cryptocurrency. The bonus amount in other currencies is indicated in the “Bonus Terms” section in the footer of any page on the Katsu Bet web-site. Since the bonus has four parts, 20 CAD must be deposited before receiving each part. You have 14 days to wager the bonus, after which the bonus expires.
For the 1st deposit, the gambler receives a 100% return on the deposit amount, but not more than 400 CAD & 100 freespins. 45x wagering is required to withdraw the money won from this bonus. Freespins require 50x wagering.
For the 2nd deposit, the gambler receives a 75% return on the deposit amount, but not more than 500 CAD. Here you need to enter the 2DEP bonus code (make no mistake!) in the “Bonus code” field before making a deposit. 45x wagering is required to withdraw the money won from this bonus.
For the 3rd deposit, the gambler receives 50% of the deposit amount, but not more than 1000 CAD. The bonus code is 3DEP (be careful!). 45x wagering is required to withdraw the money won from this bonus.
Those gamblers who didn’t give up on the conditions of previous bonuses and didn’t give up during not the smallest 45x wagering, for the 4th deposit receive a 100% return on the deposit amount, but not more than 4100 CAD and 100 freespins. Wagering, as before, 45x, for freespins wagering 50x. The bonus code’s 4DEP (enter the code correctly!).
Those who add excitement to themselves with high stakes are entitled to a special bonus. The player makes a 1st deposit of at least 300 CAD and receives 50% of the deposit amount, up to a maximum of 4,500 CAD. You must enter the bonus code HIGHROLLER before making a deposit. The wagering conditions are traditional for the operator – 45x. The ‘Bonus Terms’ section in the footer of any page on the KatsuBet website lists countries that aren’t eligible for the promo.
One of the features of casino KatsuBet that impresses with its attention to gamblers is a detailed description of the ability to convert cryptocurrencies to fiat. The section’s in the public domain & you don’t need to specifically contact the support service to find out this info. The section is available via the ‘Learn More’ button located on one of the banners on the main page. By the way, we didn’t find this section in the footer of the site. It remains to be hoped that KatsuBet will leave this banner in a prominent place because if the banner is removed, it won’t be easy to find such useful info on the site.
So, let’s get to the point. The operator expresses an understanding that it’s more convenient for some gamblers to play on the fiat currency of the country where they are located, despite the fact that the gambler made the deposit through a crypto wallet. Katsu Bet allows gamblers to convert their cryptocurrencies into fiat currencies directly on the site through the CoinsPaid crypto wallet. Please read the details of this feature on the official web-site of KatsuBet.
By the way, perhaps this is why KatsuBet bonuses aren’t particularly targeted at crypto players. Rather, it looks like a hybrid offering that doesn’t directly benefit Bitcoin gamblers, although there’s a whole section of games created for such players.
In addition to personal experience playing at KatsuBet, we take into account the opinions of other gamblers, which can be found on sites that publish independent comments. In particular, among the KatsuBet’s achievements is the AskGamblers certificate of trust, which means that the majority of commentators were satisfied with the operator. However, there’re reports (and we can’t ignore them!) that KatsuBet’s live chat isn’t as fast as it claims to be on the site. For the sake of fairness of the review, we’re obliged to mention this, although we personally managed to get a quick response from the support agent.
In addition, you can contact the online casino through the contact form, the link to which is in the footer of any page of the site. You need to scroll down the page and click on the word “Support”. As for the e-mail address, it is not so easy to find it. In one of the sections devoted to the rules of the game in the online casino KatsuBet, the e-mail is indicated – [email protected], but we had to try hard to find it.
Those online casinos that have been recognized by authorities in the iGaming industry (well-known expert casino reviewers, popular online platforms for publishing independent comments from gamblers, etc.) deserve more trust from gamblers than unremarkable casinos. KatsuBet wasted no time: for several years of existence, the online casino managed to get the approval of AskGamblers, Casino Guru and other important experts. The online casino is also certified by iTechLabs and offers games with certified RNG. Gambler data is protected by 128-bit SSL encryption.
KatsuBet holds a valid licence from the jurisdiction of Curacao, which underscores the casino’s commitment to offering a secure and trustworthy online gaming environment to its players.
In general, our assessment of casino KatsuBet is quite high. Reading the comments of the gamblers, we came across mostly good, even rave reviews. From time to time, gamblers came across those who were unhappy that they were not given freespins when playing regularly or that the name of the casino was too hard to pronounce. Our gaming experience at KatsuBet was quite successful – transactions were fast, support responded almost immediately. It seemed to us that the wagering and wagering requirements could be lower. But summing up the review, KatsuBet’s a decent operator.
