CryptoGames is a Provably Fair bitcoin gambling site that offers dice, slots, blackjack, roulette, plinko, lottery and video poker.
The site was originally launched as DogecoinMachine.net in 2014, and was just a slot machine for Dogecoin. In August 2014 more coins were added and the business decided to expand and rebranded to CryptoGames.

Games and graphics on CryptoGames
Crypto Games features seven main games:
The CryptoGames dice implementation is much like any other, at least when it comes to the single betting version. You select the payout multiplier you would like and the system automatically calculates your win chance and the number you will need to roll under or over. As you adjust the payout percentage the Win Chance and Roll over/under numbers automatically update.
The Auto Bet version of the game (accessed via the Auto Bet tab) is advanced and has a host of options that you can adjust, including: increase/decrease bet on win, increase/decrease bet on loss ; switching over/under on win or loss ; and it also has a limits section so you can stop after a number of rolls or if the balance becomes higher or lower than the amount you specify in the settings.
The slots on offer add a nice splash of colour to the site. The crypto-games slots have somewhat of a nostalgic feel to them given that the symbols are fruits, so you are playing a virtual fruit machine! The pay lines are visible on the right hand side of the screen. There is also a recent bets list where you can view the latest bets (both wins and losses) across the entire site.
The Blackjack table takes up a very small portion of the screen, this isn’t such an issue on games like slot, but with a card game like Blackjack this creates for a pretty poor gaming experience. Blackjack is certainly not a strong point of the site.
The Roulette experience on crypto-games.net is fair. The wheel is situated in the top left of the screen with high contrast yellow/reds and blacks, splitting the numbers and wheel body.
The roulette table has clearly defined numbers which are easy to see at a glance.
Video poker suffers from the same problem that blackjack does, the playing area takes up far too little of the screen real-estate, in fact it looks almost identical to the blackjack game.
Plinko makes better use of the screen space and the playing experience benefits as a result of this. It is also more colorful and moves away from the bland greens and browns that comprise many of the other games. The balls fall at a decent rate and you can choose the volatility you prefer by choosing from four different colored play buttons. This is one of the better games on the site and we had some fun playing this one!
The lottery game is easy to use although there is no graphical element to it (short of a simple box which allows you to purchase tickets and announces results). The draw takes place twice per week on Wednesday and Saturday. Each ticket costs 0.0001 BTC (10k satoshi). Every draw guarantees a winner. Three winning tickets are drawn for each draw and award the following prizes:
- 1st place: 80% of the prize pool
- 2nd place: 15% of the prize pool
- 3rd place: 6% of the prize pool
CryptoGames does not offer any sign up bonuses, although from time to time you might spot a promotion if you check their social media, there was a monthly wagering contest running when we conducted this review for instance:
Many of the games lack colour however all have decent game play. We really like the fact that this site supports so many coins, including: bitcoin, dash, dogecoin, ethereum, gridcoin, litecoin, playmoney, peercoin, stratis and monero. If you have coins in these multiple currencies you may well want to check the site out. CryptoGames is very much a niche site with a niche following. There is also an active chat room, so if you are a community orientated player be sure to check this site out!
