Bitcoin gambling websites that combine the sports betting and casino gaming services are becoming prevalent in the online gambling scene; that is why I’m putting the spotlight on one of the key players in this sector to learn more about its offerings and insights into the growing world of Bitcoin gambling.
Launched in late 2013, GoBetGo initially started as a real-money sportsbook. A few months after its debut, it joined the trend of accepting Bitcoin payments and allowed bettors to place bets with bitcoins starting March of this year.
GoBetGo Marketing Manager George Thomas, who has worked in online gambling since 2001 for various companies like the Casino Rewards group and PartyGaming, revealed what the online betting community can expect from the platform, as well as its take on the imminent role of cryptocurrencies in online gambling.
It’s a privilege to have you, George. Let’s start with GoBetGo and its position in the market. How do you see your brand fare in the Bitcoin gambling business?
GoBetGo easily stands out because it has a nice, modern design, good odds, plenty of deposit and withdrawal options, quick support, and fast withdrawals. We hold a license in Curacao, and our system runs on the Ultraplay software for the sportsbook and casino while Ezugi powers up our live casino. With Ultraplay on board, I’d say that our software is far more advanced, mobile friendly, and we operate with the lowest margins on Earth—not just within the Bitcoin ecosystem, but also in real-money gambling. In fact, our sportsbook odds are beating anyone in the market right now.
Looks like everything’s working well for GoBetGo; but are there challenges that you face in operating your brand?
The largest challenge is the competition. There is a ton of competition in the Bitcoin gambling world, and new sites are launching on a daily basis. Nowadays, a brand needs to really outperform themselves in order to achieve something in this business.
I agree, but I’m sure you have this covered. What are your plans to further boost your mark in the gambling scene?
We plan to continue offering the best odds in the market. This is our strength. For a player, to bet on the best odds is the most important part of their experience. After all, every player wants to win the most, and it doesn’t take much to realize where you can do it.
Let’s shift to Bitcoin in general and the rise of Bitcoin gambling sites. What is your opinion on these aspects?
Bitcoin has a strong future, and Bitcoin gambling sites are solving a problem for many online gamblers. It has zero transaction fees, it is instant, and it is anonymous. I also believe that cryptocurrency will have a great future in gambling, and it seems like it is getting hot in the real world. With all the startups and venture funding going in the ecosystem, I give it a great chance to become the next big thing.
Wonderful. Now, any last words to share with the Bitcoin gambling community about GoBetGo?
Besides our Bitcoin sportsbook and casino, we also offer a Live Casino with beautiful dealers, together with an incredibly fast customer support. We have been in the industry for a decade, and we come with our experience. We know exactly what we are doing, and players should feel safe with us.
I’m sure they do. Thank you for this opportunity, George; it’s been a pleasure.
