Vave Casino Review

Written by Adam Gros

7.1

Overview

Vave Casino is one of the more modern crypto casinos with unique features like in-house games, unique bonus features, and a sports loyalty program, that set it apart from the masses. Downsides are no game filtering and a poor support, which I describe in detail in this Vave Casino review.

Established in 2022, Vave Casino is regulated by the government of Costa Rica (or not, because Costa Rica doesn’t issue or regulate gambling licenses).

Vave Casino Review: Bonuses

6/10

Number of Welcome + Regular Bonuses

They offer very few welcome and regular bonuses (most casinos offer at least 4)

* Regular Bonuses = Reload, Cashback, Free spins, Rakeback, Faucet

Welcome Bonus Amount

The welcome package amount is low (most casinos offer at least $1000).

Welcome Bonus Free Spins

There are very few or none welcome free spins (most casinos offer at least 100).

Number of Regular Weekly Promotions

They have a large amount of regular promotions!

* Regular Promotions = all time-unlimited promotions without the welcome offer and bonuses in the VIP/loyalty program

Regular Weekly Bonuses Amount

The weekly bonuses couls be higher (the best casinos offer at least $5000 worth of bonuses).

* Regular Bonuses = Reload, Cashback, Free spins, Rakeback, Faucet

Regular Weekly Free Spins

You can get at least 200 free spins every week!

Wagering Requirements

Wagering requirements could be lower (the best casinos require 20x wagering (on bonus) or less).

* Average wagering requirements across all regular bonuses are taken into account.

At first glance, Vave Casino has very few casino bonuses. One welcome cashback, a weekly reload, and weekly free spins. But then you come across their wheel spin.

I know, I know, wheel spins are popping up in every crypto casino nowadays because they're all copying one another. But Vave has done it differently, and I like it.

Vevo Casino wheel of fortune

This is the first thing that you can do after subscribing. Spin the wheel and get a reward. This can be $10, $100, 1 BTC, or Vave points that you can redeem for cash.

Whichever reward you get, it's locked until you make a deposit. A shame, but fair, I guess.

After this initial spin, you can use the wheel again at any deposit, where the wheel gets an upgrade with better rewards if you deposit over $100 (silver wheel), or even better rewards for deposits over $500 (gold wheel).

This time, there are only cash rewards or free spins.

And the best part is that there are no wagering requirements on these rewards!

But don't forget that you have a first deposit bonus available as well:

100% up to 1 BTC cashback
Wagering: 40x on bonus

The cashback is credited on a Sunday after your first deposit (and play). A $20 minimum deposit is required to qualify for the bonus.

This is by far the highest first deposit cashback I have ever come across. But it's also the only one with wagering requirements.

Most casinos that offer such a bonus go up to 20% with no wagering. Like FortuneJack, for example. So, it's either more cashback with wagering or less cashback and no wagering.

As I mentioned at the beginning, there are also two weekly casino bonuses available:

  • Thursday Reload: 50% up to $150 + 100 free spins
  • Saturday Free Spins: up to 100 free spins

Both come with a 40x wagering on bonus. The amount of Saturday free spins depends on the deposit:

  • 20 free spins for $20 or more,
  • 50 for $50 or more,
  • and 100 for $100 or more.

There is also a daily slot tournament and other seasonal promotions available.

More free spins and cash bonuses are available in the loyalty program. I'll get into that in the loyalty section of this Vave Casino review.

Sports Bonuses

There is also a sports first deposit bonus:

100% up to $500
Wagering: 10x on bonus

This time, it's a regular first deposit bonus with a minimum deposit of $20. Wagering must be made on accumulator bets with at least 2 events and total odds of 2.5 or higher.

There is also a weekly sports tournament split into three sections, depending on your bet amounts. But basically, the more you win, the higher you rank.

Vave Casino Bonus Code

Using a Vave Casino bonus code is simple. Each time you make a deposit, you can enter a bonus code right at the top of the deposit window.

The same goes for activating a bonus. All available bonuses will be listed in the deposit window. Just click on the bonus, make a deposit, and play.

Games

10/10

Number of Games

They have more games than most casinos!

Game Providers

They have games from more game providers than most casinos!

Game Variety

You will find all the popular regular and live games (slots, poker, roulette, blackjack, baccarat)!

Provably Fair Games

The casino offers games provably fair by the player

Number of Crypto Games

They have one of the most diverse offers of crypto games!

* Crypto games: Dice, Crash, Plinko

Vave Casino hosts over 5,000 games from an absurd number of game providers: over 120!

Luckily, you can filter games by provider, although sadly, they aren't sorted alphabetically. But luckily, again, there is also a search bar for providers.

This is also the only way to filter games, something that similar casinos have sorted out much better. BC.Game, for example, lets you sort games by popularity or alphabetically, and will also show RTP for every single game.

What I like and think every serious crypto casino should do is that Vave Casino has in-house games. There aren't many of them, but that's not the point.

There are Crash, Plinko, Dice, Mines, and Coin Toss, covering all the important crypto games.

What I miss is that there is no provably fair feature, something that having in-house games allows you to have. Although I'm not an advocate of proving fairness by players, some find this important, so I think it's a shame that Vave didn't include this.

If you want to play provably fair games, you'll have to do with Spribe games.

Otherwise, you'll be able to find any game you desire. You can also play games for free and see your bet history in the account.

The casino lobby is also done a bit differently than what you're used to from other online casinos. Where most casinos feature different game categories in their lobbies, Vave doesn't have any games at all!

Instead, they show your loyalty progress, a scrolling banner of promotions, and casino categories like a navigation to get to the actual games.

The site is split into four categories (and menus):

  1. Slots (which include non-live table games as well)
  2. Live Casino
  3. Pre-match Sports betting
  4. Live sports betting

Vave Sports

Sports betting is divided into pre-match and live betting at Vevo.

Both lobbies are modern and styled in their theme colors. There are over 30 sports available and the major eSports as well.

There is also the results page, or the sports statistics, which lets you see results from past matches for different sports. This is something that more and more bookmakers include nowadays, but it's still no present everywhere, so it's a nice addition.

You can use a 100% first deposit bonus for sports, which I described in the bonus section of this Vave review.

One unique feature is that they offer a separate loyalty program for sports betting. I'll get into that in the loyalty section, but this is something I haven't seen before.

Lost or Diminished Functionalities on Mobile

All functionalities work well on mobile

Popup Notifications

There are no intrusive and unnecessery notifications and popups

* Popups and notifications are deemed intrusive if they keep opening on multiple pages even after closing, covering the majority of the screen and generally interfering with user experience.

In my eyes, a good crypto casino accepts lots of cryptocurrencies (not just the main five or six) and heavily takes advantage of what blockchain technology allows:

  • Fast transactions with low fees and no limits
  • Anonymity and few restrictions

There is a lot more, but this affects casino players the most.

Vevo Casino does a good job on most of these things. Payment limits could be better given that they transact directly on the blockchain apart from other payment methods. But let's start from the top.

Vevo Casino restricts only around 10 countries from playing and offers deposits in over 60 cryptocurrencies, making it one of the most accessible crypto casinos.

When it comes to making transactions directly on the blockchain, with no intermediaries, they sadly do that only for the major currencies, while smaller tokens are processed by sideshift.ai.

This means that smaller tokens come with longer processing times, higher fees, and worse payment limits. But I still think it's better the offer this than not at all.

The altcoin deposit feature loads forever, though. I had to use the manual redirect link each time to get to the deposit screen. Something to improve.

You can also buy crypto, using Changelly, MoonPay, Banxa, and some others.

When it comes to user experience, apart from what I've already mentioned, I think the site works almost flawlessly.

I love that they use their own software for everything and don't rely on third parties, where everything gets copied to hundreds of other casinos.

On the other hand, the most important user experience is how the games are filtered, loaded and played. And little can go wrong if you don't offer any filtering or sorting of games. So this is one thing I missed a lot on Vave. Especially because I know they have custom software and could implement this if they wanted to.

Maybe I'm being biased, but this is what makes a good user experience for me.

They also have a Hall-of-fame page where they feature the biggest wins of the day, week, or lifetime. Not that it makes it any easier for you to win, but it's nice to see someone doing it. Sadly, I wasn't able to add my name to the list. Yet :)

Login, Signup & Payments

8/10

Required Personal Info to Sign Up and Play

Only an email is required to sign up and play!

Sign Up Process

The sign up process is short and simple!

Deposits

Very low min. deposit and unlimited max. deposit!

Withdrawals

Min. withdrawal is very low compared to most casinos and max. withdrawal is very low.

Cryptocurrencies

The casino accepts over 20 different cryptocurrencies!

Use of Bonus Codes

Bonus codes are simple to use if they are needed at all

Wagering deposits

You must wager your deposit amount at least 3 times before being eligible for a withdrawal.

Signup and login at Vave Casino are as simple as they should be in a crypto-only casino.

You only require an email to signup, deposit, play, and withdraw. So your anonymity is safe.

There is no signing up using Google or Metamask, like some casinos offer, but I prefer the old-fashioned way. More anonymous as well.

Although they reserve the right to perform additional KYC for larger transactions (like all casinos do), there is no place to enter any additional information, which already says a lot.

You can either deposit in one of 11 major cryptocurrencies directly on the blockchain, deposit in around 50 smaller tokens via a third party or buy crypto using one of the payment methods available.

The payment limits heavily depend on your chosen cryptocurrency. I highlight the limits for USDT on TRC20 below, which has one of the best limits in the casino:

Min Max
Crypto deposit $5 unlimited
Crypto withdrawal $15 $20,000/month

Unlike most casinos, Vave requires you to wager your deposit 3-times before being able to withdraw anything, so keep that in mind!

Regular Players Treatment

8/10

Newsletter

You can sign up to a newsletter.

Regular Weekly Promotions

There are plenty regular weekly promotions to keep you engaged!

VIP/Loyalty Program

The casino has an average loyalty program.

Support

Support is ok but could be better.

*Support is rated in the support section of Vave Casino review.

Apart from support, which I don't like much (I'll get into this in the support section of this Vave Casino review), Vave Casino has a good program for regular players.

There are newsletters you can sign up for to get regular updates and promotions, enough frequent bonuses (and the wheel of fortune thing) to keep you going, and not one but two loyalty programs.

Although none of these are super special or stand out with incredible offers that you couldn't get elsewhere, they also aren't bad in any way and are more than enough to make your experience pleasant.

Number/Value of Added Features For a Loyal Player

The loyalty program could add more value to player's experience

There are two loyalty programs: one for casino and one for sports.

Let's start with casino.

There are 18 levels:

  1. (0-30 VP): No rewards yet
  2. (30 VP): 5 USDT + 10 Free Spins
  3. (100 VP): 10 USDT + 25 Free Spins
  4. (200 VP): 15 USDT + 50 Free Spins
  5. (500 VP): 20 USDT + 75 Free Spins
  6. (1,000 VP): 30 USDT + 100 Free Spins
  7. (2,000 VP): 50 USDT
  8. (5,000 VP): 100 USDT
  9. (10,000 VP) 150 USDT
  10. (17,000 VP): 200 USDT
  11. (30,000 VP): 500 USDT
  12. (50,000 VP): 1,000 USDT
  13. (100,000 VP): 2,000 USDT
  14. (200,000 VP): 5,000 USDT
  15. (500,000 VP): 10,000 USDT
  16. (1,000,000 VP): 30,000 USDT
  17. (2,000,000 VP): 50,000 USDT
  18. (5,000,000 VP): 100,000 USDT

And 7 levels for the sports loyalty:

  1. (0-200 VP): No rewards yet
  2. (200 VP): +100 additional VP
  3. (2,000 VP): +1,000 additional VP
  4. (10,000 VP): +5,000 additional VP
  5. (50,000 VP): +25,000 additional VP
  6. (200,000 VP): +100,000 additional VP
  7. (500,000 VP): +250,000 additional VP

Both programs work similarly: every $10 bet gets you one point. For sports, this is limited to total odds of 1.3 or higher.

The casino program brings you free spins and cash bonuses with 10x wagering, and the sports program brings you additional points.

The points can be exchanged for cash bonuses in the casino program with a 5x wagering requirement and for free bets in the sports program. The exchange rate is 100 points for $1.

You get to keep your levels in the casino while the sports program resets to zero every month, but you keep your collected points.

Both programs are decent, but they aren't VIP (although Vave calls them that). To see a program with VIP features, try BitStarz.

Support

5/10

Number of Support Options

They could have more support options apart from live chat (the best casinos include live chat, email and telephone)

Live Chat Experience

Live chat requires additional personal info to use.

Response Time

Live chat response time is a few seconds or up to a few minutes tops!

Bots & Agents

Live chat agents tend to give generic answers, but can come off as both unprofessional and unfriendly. You have to talk to a bot before getting to an agent.

* Talking to a bot is not necesserily a bad thing but it does prolong the time for resolving your issue if you must talk to an agent.

This is the part I like the least about Vave.

You can contact them via email, using the contact form on their site, or using the live chat feature (which is what I use).

The chat starts with a bot but can be transferred to an agent quickly if needed.

What bothers me most about support agents, in general, is if they give generic answers and don't know the basics of the casino they work for. And this is the case here.

I could almost feel the poor guy struggling to give me the most diplomatic answer possible, which literally tells you nothing. It's like asking for possible payment methods and getting "You can deposit using different payment methods at Vave" back. Wow, really? Thanks! I made this up, but it isn't far from what I got.

When you go deeper (because you have to to get anything from them), you figure out that they don't actually know. Not even how much you can deposit or withdraw. Which is the most basic thing for being able to run a casino.

I don't know. Maybe I have bad luck and run into weird agents. But this is my experience.

Resposible Gambling

This is another field Vave isn't the best at. But to be honest, this is the case for every modern crypto casino with custom software - they don't invest in things that don't bring money.

Although you can self-exclude and set deposit limits, you have to do everything through support.

There also aren't any responsible gambling links leading to authoritative support agencies, which is considered the minimum besides clearly displaying the owner and the license number of a casino.

Social Media & Groups

Vave Casino uses Twitter, Telegram, Discord, and Instagram. You can find links to them all in the footer of their website.

The content across platforms is similar. There are posts about ongoing promotions, new blog posts, featured games, and a meme here and there.
