The more obvious websites include things such as roulettes, jackpots, coinflips, and other ‘casino games’ where skins are the prizes. This article focuses on the more obvious gambling websites, though we do have an article about case opening sites which also explains why they might be better than opening cases on Steam.
Things can change over time of course so please make sure you do your own personal checks with each website to ensure you’re happy with them. The table below provides you with some more information about our favorite sites.
Gambling in video games has been a hot topic over recent years and for good reason; gambling shouldn’t be accessible for children but some games are allowing children to be introduced to it.
WTFSkins has a very messy UI at first glance but, it can be customized slightly to reduce this thanks to the options to minimize the chat window and to change to the “Old Playlist Style” on the right side of the screen. This means the middle of the screen is dedicated to whatever game you’ve clicked to see from the main menu.
The site only has an official Twitter page for their social media which is kept up to date and often holds giveaways as well. WTFSkins also has a decent FAQ to explain a few different things though this is very limited. It’s possible to contact support through the website by opening a Support Ticket to send through your questions or concerns.
While they do have a Case Opening website called CSGO LIVE, this website has three gambling games on the actual site for CSGO. You can play Crash, Roulette, Jackpot and WTF Legends for big prizes. The variety is okay though there are only 4 games to play here.
This site has a lot happening on the home page while also being visually minimalistic to give it an easy-to-use UI design. The menu is slightly strange, however, there’s a drop-down at the top of the page but the games are also listed on the right side of the page scrolling down as well. As a bonus, the chatbox on the left side can also be minimized which is perfect if you don’t want to get involved with the community very often.
Gamdom has a strong social media presence with active accounts for Twitter, Instagram, VK, Youtube, Telegram and also a Discord channel. This makes it easy to interact with the community and reach out for support. The FAQ also has a good amount of detail and there is even a section at the end to help those who might be becoming addicted to gambling. For contacting support, they provide an email address for both support and any marketing questions.
As a huge bonus, the Gamdom FAQ explains how each of the 5 games works on the website. This is great for people unfamiliar with how Crash, Roulette, Hilo, Tradeup or Jackpot work. There are Slot machine games too.
CSGO Empire has the least amount of games on our list, they currently only offer 3 game types on their website. However, they do have Roulette, CoinFlip, and Match Betting for pro league games such as ESL games for CSGO and there are also some other games included in this too. Additionally, they offer Giveaways and have Daily Cases with a Free Case to offer their players as well.
They have a page that explains the technical aspects that ensure the games on their website are fair. Anyone interested in coding can also take a look to see what the coding is like and even execute the PHP code themselves if they wish.
While this is great, the FAQ is limited overall, and finding support contact information is awkward. CSGO Empire does have active social media accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a Discord as well.
It allows for deposits with real money via different platforms such as Visa, Skrill, Bank Transfer, and more while also allowing users to deposit game items from CSGO, DOTA 2, Rust, and H1Z1. Cryptocurrency is another option too. The withdrawal system is not very clear but it does allow you to select between different games, look at Instant withdrawals only and see if items are marked up at all.
This site gets you to confirm your age before allowing you to enter the website though once you get onto the site, it’s a bit confusing. The UI isn’t great, the menu isn’t obvious and there’s no way to make the page look less cluttered. Though the community chat on the right side of the page can be minimized at least.
While the UI is lacking, the game quantity is not. There are 7 games to select from which can be found in a small picture menu beneath the “sign in” button. In addition to esport Match Betting, there is also “Wheel”, Crash, Twenty One, Mine Sweeper, Dice, and a Jackpot. Players need to sign in to the site to play and CSGOatse also includes a safety guide on their website for avoiding scams and scamming websites. However, CSGO skin withdrawals on this site are all Player To Player which means the trades are made between real people which could in slow trades. To deposit or withdraw money, users need to have their mobile authenticator activated for 7 (or 15 for new Steam accounts) days first.
The FAQ on this site is quite extensive and is helpful for potential issues that can happen while playing the games. The support contact information can only be found at the bottom of the FAQ which could be frustrating at times as it’s not great for the UI. CSGOatse does have an active Twitter account though the Facebook group is less active. There is also a VK group for Russian gamers.
CSGO Fast has an incredible number of games on offer with 14 different games for players to try out. The games are easy to find thanks to the smooth and user-friendly UI, the icons on the left side of the screen can be expanded to reveal all of the game names and what they’re classified as. This makes it easy to see which games put players against each other, in co-op with others or to see what games let them play alone. Of course, the games are also found in the middle of the homepage so users can just scroll down to see all of the games on offer. It includes Match Betting, Crash, Slot, Craft, Wheel, Tower, Case Openings and more.
To find the FAQ, there’s a question mark icon next to the Sign In button which lets you see a range of potential questions. It’s a nice FAQ system that lets players find the topic they’re having an issue with before clicking the dropdown menu to see commonly asked questions about the topic. This means it also includes some questions about how the games work which is perfect for those who are unfamiliar with some of the game names or just need a little reminder about how it works. Reaching the support team is easy with CSGO Fast, there’s an option to use the Ticket System for fast replies which will work for most issues but there is also a technical support chat.
The downside to CSGO Fast, however, is that finding their social media platforms is difficult. They’re hidden on the left side of the screen with the icons and can only be seen once that menu has been maximized. Even then, they are right at the bottom. Once you do find them, the social media accounts are quite active on Facebook, Twitter, VK and Instagram as well.
Gambling is something that you need to be careful with, not only because of the risk of addiction but also due to the number of scammer websites on the internet. Always be sure to check a website thoroughly before signing into Steam through it by looking at their reviews and social media websites closely. Be sure to send their support team emails with questions as well if you can’t find the information on their website!
For the other side of gambling, remember that it’s just meant to be for fun. If you start to find yourself spending too much time on it or avoiding chores and responsibilities then it’s time to take a break from any gambling websites for a little while.
There’s no harm or reason to feel bad about needing to seek outside help if you start struggling to control the time or money you spend on gambling, addiction is something that extends beyond gambling! It’s possible to become addicted to anything that makes you feel good.
Disclaimer: When gambling stops being fun then you need to reconsider what you’re doing.
