Gaming Software Giants Playtech, Microgaming, NetEnt Accept BTC bets from US Players

The rules of the game have changed now that the three biggest software providers in the iGaming industry have opened their doors for BTC bets! Playtech, Microgaming, and Net Entertainment have finally made their presence felt in the Bitcoin gambling arena, and it looks like they are here to stay.

Hindered by factors like the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA), the online gaming software giants decided to veer away from dabbling in the world of Bitcoin gambling. However, they have slowly—and quite stealthily—entered this niche as evident with the Bitcoin casinos bearing their trademark slot games, giving US bettors the green light to play their games without violating any law.

The most notable brand is the newly launched Bitcoin casino called, which takes pride in being a licensed platform with multi-software games from the likes of Novomatic, Igrosoft, and Net Entertainment.

It can be recalled, though, that Net Entertainment already has a history in the Bitcoin casino market after Vera&John Casino became the world’s first licensed casino to accept BTC bets. However, the site suspended its Bitcoin payment services.

Meanwhile, certain casinos like have also picked up several Microgaming-licensed online casino games. In fact, the popular online slot games Thunderstruck II and Avalon II, which previously can only be played with real money, can easily be accessed and enjoyed by wagering bitcoins.

However, among the giants in the sector of online gaming software, it was Playtech that is perhaps the least open about its entrance in Bitcoin gambling. This changed at last as it is now actively vying a spot in this budding market, and it does so via Bitcoin slots.

Aside from its Game of the Month, which features the Hulk slots—one of Playtech’s much-played slots in online casinos— has shared hints that it is, indeed, powered by the said software provider.

Its Privacy Policy page may seem ordinary except for one thing—the email link for its customer support team directs every player to the support team of another brand called Max Casino. This, however, is purely denominated by fiat money and supports the conventional payment methods. Most of all, it is powered by

Other support links, meanwhile, lead to the Crystal Casino support email—another fiat online casino that runs on Microgaming.

Although some Playtech games are hosted on BC Casino, a Bitcoin-only gambling site, only strengthens the software giant’s participation in the acceptance and support for online gaming with the digital currency.

With the huge leap for the online gaming industry to have the leading software providers cater to Bitcoin bettors from across the globe, the Bitcoin casino market proves to be an ideal destination for online casino enthusiasts, especially those in the US.

After all, what else can be better than playing the popular Playtech, Microgaming, and Net Entertainment games using Bitcoin?
