Higher Stakes

February 5, 2013

We're raising the limit once again! We have raised the maximum bet limit across most of our games. We are dedicated to making bitZino the place to play for trustworthy high-stakes casino action!

Instant Deposits

January 16, 2013

We're happy to announce that we have re-enabled instant deposits! Note that in certain circimstances, we still may require a single confirmation before crediting your account. Please see your deposit page for more details.

We'd like to extend a huge thanks to retep, Mike Hearn, and the entire bitcoin development team for taking bitcoin security seriously, and for helping bitcoin businesses do the same.

Deposit Confirmations

January 12, 2013

Due to the recently disclosed potential vulnerability in accepting zero-confirmation bitcoin transactions, we are temporarily requiring at least one confirmation for deposits. This means there may be a short delay before your deposit is credited to your account, during which it will be listed as "pending" on your deposit page.

In order to mitigate this, we are also adding support for green addresses. We currently support Mt. Gox and Deepbit green addresses. Just use these services' green address feature when sending us bitcoins, and your coins will be available to start playing instantly!
