Crypto Poker Will Bring 3 Players to 2015 WSOP

Newly revamped Crypto Poker is going all out with its enticing promotions, and part of its latest giveaways is the three event seats to this year’s WSOP. Bitcoin poker players can fly to the global event via the WSOP Seat PPP Giveaway tournament, the WSOP Tournament Leaderboard Qualifier, and the Progressive Bad Beat Jackpot tournament. Moreover, it features a 100% match deposit bonus of up to 2 BTC and added a Bitcoin dice interface. The roulette game will follow.

“Now, players who join our site can sign up, make a smaller deposit, receive the 100% match deposit bonus on the initial deposit, and test drive the site. If they like it—which we are very confident that they will—then they still have the opportunity to take advantage of the 100% Deposit Bonus on the second deposit.”

Gambling in the Face of Bitcoin Foundation Fiasco

As if the controversies hounding the Bitcoin Foundation in the past were not enough, it now faces another issue. This time, its newly elected board member Olivier Janssens published an open letter, calling the foundation ‘bankrupt.’ With the foundation struggling to perform its duties for the betterment of the Bitcoin ecosystem, the question of how the Bitcoin casino market fares today rises.

“Similar to the common sentiments on the social platforms, the answer is yes. And this results in the continuous development of the Bitcoin gambling market to become a significant aspect of the iGaming industry. In truth, despite the inadequacies of the foundation, this sector simply continued to push through, reaching the status it has today.”

Pocket Rockets Casinos to Reward Top Prizes

In celebration of its second year in the business, Pocket Rockets Casinos launched a special promotion that ends on April 17. Big rewards like the PlayStation 4 Grand Theft Auto V bundle, nVidia Shield gaming tablet, and large HD TV are up for grabs. Likewise, its Bitcoin dice game currently registers a record-high maximum payout of almost 220 BTC.

“This is not the end as players can expect more games to be launched on the site, giving bettors more reasons to play and trust the crowdfunded website, which boasts 2822 BTC invested to date. With such confidence and support from the online community of Bitcoin bettors, paired with the attractive Pocket Rockets Casino rewards, this gambling portal is off to claim more success in the future.”

Bitcoin’s Role in Russian Gambling Gets Recognized

The 2015 Russian Gaming Week will take place in Moscow on June 3, and this event will serve as the venue for key personalities, organizations, and companies in the gambling industry to talk about the future of gambling in the country. The impact of Bitcoin on the online gambling market will be among the talks to be held during the said expo-conference.

“This, however, proves to be an interesting development because there have been initiatives to ban the digital currency during the past months. With online gambling becoming a legit market in the country, the fusion of Bitcoin betting on the local scene may serve as the catalyst for a wider and faster adoption of the cryptocurrency.”

Gambit Drops BTC Bets from Skill-Based Games

Gambit, one of the very few skill-based Bitcoin gambling sites—if not the only one—left the Bitcoin betting scene for good. In fact, it totally abandoned the idea of online betting as it is now a fun-only gaming platform. Thus, US dollar and Bitcoin deposits are no longer accepted on this website.

“It has become clear that the majority of users on Gambit come to play for fun. Even if they do wager with Bitcoin, it’s in such small quantities that it is no different than playing for fun. Due to this realization and the above reasons, we think that a major shift in the site towards rewards, badges, seasons, and bragging is a much more compelling and enjoyable user experience overall.”
