Bitcoin Price Crashes Animate Poker Pros on Social Media

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Bitcoin just survived one of its biggest corrections in past months, dropping down from being just over $10,000 to almost going below $6,000 per BTC. Amid the huge wave of panicky comments and fears this sharp decline brought, there was also another group of people with social media influence that remained positive during the selling storm – professional Poker players.

Posting survival guides, jokes about investing, and even getting serious on advising future investors of Bitcoin, some players in the Bitcoin and Poker communities survived the latest price crash with an interesting sense of humor.

Doug Polk and Fedor Holz Advise Investments and “HODL-ing”

One of the most notable supporters of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is heads-up NLH pro Doug Polk who amid the strong price correction on Monday went to Twitter to jokingly say that he hopes “everyone spent their Bitcoin for some Lambo’s in January. At this point it’s looking like a much stronger investment vehicle”.

If you’re one of Doug Polk’s followers, you’ll know about his active involvement with cryptocurrencies and his YouTube channel “Doug Polk Crypto” where he posts video commentaries on cryptocurrencies and investing in Bitcoin. One of his latest uploads was titled “Top 5 Tips for Handling a Bitcoin Crash” and in it he humorously acts out common investment mistakes and shares his advice about what  Bitcoin holders should do. And what’s his number one advice? – “Hold when things get tough”. Or as some crypto-enthusiasts would say: “HODL!” (Hold On for Dear Life).

Fedor Holz – the 24-year old Poker pro who is one of the youngest to have accumulated over $25 million in Poker winnings – is another strong supporter of cryptocurrencies who found a sense of humor in turbulent times. While Bitcoin’s price was gradually declining on Monday, he tweeted “I think we just hit ‘sell your kids’ -zone”, mirroring suggestions from other investors that it was the right time to buy. The following day, though, he followed up with a warning to his advice by saying that investors should “make risk management a high priority”.

Famous NBA sports bettor and WSOP player Haralabos Voulgaris also shared sarcastic jokes on Twitter and even expressed his long-term commitment to the cryptocurrency while US Poker pro Daniel Cates went to the social media platform to say that he didn’t understand why people were “panic selling”.

Can WSOP Attendance Be Affected?

According to US Poker, Bitcon’s price drops and bearish market could end up having some effect over the attendance at the WSOP. As the Poker portal reports, the overall attendance of the WSOP might not be affected but the $10,000 events at the 2018 series could end up being attended by fewer players.

Namely, the $10,000 events mostly rely on the action from professional Poker players, many of whom hold investments in cryptocurrencies. As was the case in 2008 when the recession drew fewer players to the main events of the World Poker Tour, a further drop in Bitcoin’s price could have a negative impact on the WSOP $10,000 events where a big portion of the players are cryptocurrency enthusiasts. Furthermore, competition at WSOP qualifiers on Bitcoin Poker sites like America’s Cardroom could also drop, should Bitcoin’s price decrease further and big sell-offs reemerge.

Fortune Jack Adds Ezugi Live Games; Betcoin Starts Taking IOTA Coins

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

While there are many Bitcoin casino operators that rarely go through the trouble of expanding their portfolio, there are also those that just never stop. Proving their right to be placed in the latter category, Betcoin Casino and Fortune Jack introduce new additions to their offer to keep up with ever-increasing player demands. To learn more about what’s new at the casinos, keep reading for the full scoop.

Betcoin Enters the IOTA Gaming Market

Unlike Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash, (M)IOTA has remained at the outskirts of the gaming industry for quite some time. Being a relatively new coin, not many operators have decided to incorporate it into their gaming platforms. However, things were bound to start changing and so they did when Betcoin announced a few days ago that it is introducing  (M)IOTA to its list of accepted cryptocurrencies, becoming one of the first operators to offer IOTA Poker, Dice, casino, and sportsbetting under one roof.

(M)IOTA is a relatively new cryptocurrency that was launched in 2015 as a coin for the IOTA platform. The main difference between IOTA and Bitcoin is that IOTA uses a new type of distributed ledger called the Tangle, which is block-less and scalable. Thus, the IOTA ledger is able to offer real micro and nano- transactions but also zero transaction fees by eliminating the need for mining and putting transaction confirmation into the hands of regular users.

Betcoin is now offering any holder of the cryptocurrency a chance to deposit and withdraw through their (M)IOTA wallets and use their coins on over 500 games, Betcoin’s full sportsbetting market, as well as the recently reinstated Betcoin Poker platform. New users can also grab 100%, 50%, and 25% bonuses on their first, second, and third (M)IOTA deposits when they join the platform.  To learn more about these rewards and spend any (M)IOTA coins you might be holding, go and checkout Betcoin Casino.

Ezugi Live Games Now Available at Fortune Jack Casino

When it comes to live games, Fortune Jack Casino already had a great offer with its selection of live dealer tables from Xpro, Evolution Gaming, and the casual live game provider BetGames TV. But a week ago, the casino nevertheless decided to expand its live offer even further and add another trusted studio to the roster – Ezugi.

Ezugi was founded in 2013 with a goal of enriching the live casino scene with web-based desktop and mobile live dealer games. Since then, the game company has grown to set up 9 different studios from where it streams around 20 live dealer games which can currently be found in over 100 different operators online.

Ezugi’s studios operate 24/7 and are located in Latin America, Asia, and Europe to target and serve multiple gaming markets. Fortune Jack now offers a number of tables from these live studios with wagers that range between 0.02 mBTC and 500 mBTC, including ones offering games like:

  • Blackjack
  • Unlimited Blackjack
  • Baccarat
  • Knockout Baccarat
  • Dragon Bonus Baccarat
  • Casino Hold’Em
  • Dragon Tiger

To check out the table rules and see the other live dealer options offered by Ezugi, feel free to head down to Fortune Jack Casino via this link here.

BitStarz Now Taking Litecoin and BCH Deposits

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Following the recent trends in the Bitcoin Casino industry, BitStarz Casino is now introducing altcoins into its platform to provide users with more ways to deposit and cash out their winnings. After mBit Casino introduced Bitcoin Cash along with 3 other altcoins and Bitcoin Games likewise adopted BCH, BitStarz is now stiffening up the competition with its modern platform and array of games.

So, if you also hold some altcoins in other wallets and are considering increasing your balance, keep reading for more information on BitStarz’ latest update to learn what you can spend them on.

Players Speak, BitStarz Listens

After a considerable amount of input from its players, BitStarz Casino has finally decided to listen to the people and introduce alternative cryptocurrencies to the platform. For now, the casino is only introducing Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash but there might be other altcoins to follow in the future as new trends form in the cryptocurrency community.

The news was first shared on the BitStarz Blog where the casino also revealed its reason for introducing the cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin Cash, for example, was adopted due to the lower fees, speed of transaction, and the possibility of everyday use the cryptocurrency offers.

After splitting from the Bitcoin blockchain on August 1st, 2017, the use and value of Bitcoin Cash has been growing thanks to the increased size of the cryptocurrency’s blocks (8 times bigger than Bitcoin) which is what makes its benefits possible. Reportedly, the offshoot cryptocurrency is also gearing up to compete with Visa and PayPal when it comes to transaction volumes, which is why BitStarz sees a future with it.

As for Litecoin, the casino says it’s the cryptocurrency’s rank as one of the top altcoins in the world that has convinced them to introduce it into their platform. Its benefits, as outlined by the casino, are its adaptive up-scaling and the fast payment confirmations it offers.

Marketing Director of BitStarz, Srdjan Kapor, says that there can’t be a better timing for the casino to announce the acceptance of both coins as a deposit method and that BitStarz always strives to be a leading casino when it comes to flexibility and accommodating players.

Only Some Games to be Made Available, for Now.

BitStarz Casino has a massive game collection on its platform that counts over 1,000 different games from providers like Evolution, Habanero, NetEnt, Softswiss, Yggdrasil, and Thunderkick, among many others. However, to test out the waters, the new altcoins will first be introduced only through Softswiss titles, although the casino ensures players that more providers are coming soon, especially if the demand grows for BCH and LTC wagers.

Apart from its games, BitStarz also shines when it comes to player promotions. Starting with a welcome package of four deposit bonuses and up to 5 BTC in rewards and continuing with weekly Free Spins and reload bonuses, the casino has plenty of extras to offer to its players. And if you’re into competitions, it also has the Table and Slot Wars, each offering wager-free cash prizes to those who climb into the tournament Leaderboard.

To learn more about the competitions and see what’s available for Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash holders, you can visit BitStarz Casino.

New Poker and Dice Treats Await at Betking and PokerStars

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

If you were looking for new playing options to enjoy during the weekend, apart from slots, BetKing and PokerStars have some novelties to share. Depending on whether you want to have a classic game of Bitcoin Dice or are looking for “fresh” players to take on at the Poker table, each website can offer you a chance to try something different on your next days off.

50 BTC Dice Jackpot Waits at BetKing

After its re-launch in September last year, BetKing introduced a new dice game on its website to entertain players until its Poker tournaments, sports betting, and other provably fair games are ready for launch. Several months later, the dice game was updated with a progressive jackpot pool. So far, the pool accumulated over 50 BTC from players’ bets which are just ready for the taking.

To trigger the jackpot, all you have to do is roll the dice two times. If the results contain “five 5s”, you will get to claim the main jackpot. To win the full prize, you have to make a bet of at least 0.001 Bitcoin. Bets of 0.0001 Bitcoin or more are also eligible for a prize of 10% of the pool while bets of 0.00001 Bitcoin only get to win 1% of the jackpot money pot.

The progressive jackpot is only available to those who use Bitcoin to make a bet and those who have deposited at least 0.0001 Bitcoin in their account.  If you make a bet from funds you’ve claimed with BetKing’s “faucet” (a tool that gives you 100 free satoshis every hour), you will not be eligible for the prize. If you want to take your shot at the massive jackpot, just head down to BetKing Casino and register.

Play Against French and Spanish Players at PokerStars

With the help of a new landmark agreement between the gaming regulators in France, Portugal, Italy, and Spain, an online poker liquidity project between the countries was finally realized this January. One of the first to benefit from the agreement thanks to its licenses in the markets was PokerStars, which finally started pooling cross-border online poker liquidity between France and Spain last week.

But what is interesting to note here is that the shared poker pool isn’t restricted to Spain and France only, but that it can likewise be enjoyed by other PokerStars users from eligible jurisdictions. Namely, as reported by CalvinAyre.com, PokerStars is now allowing other users to join the French-Spanish Poker pool by using the Spanish (.es) PokerStars website. But if you come from a country that is not accepted by PokerStars, you will not be able to do so.

Apart from running a well-known Poker site, PokerStars also operates its own casino platform. During 2017 alone, the casino site had helped 9 different players become millionaires, most of whom were made by the aptly-named Millionaire Island slot which PokerStars introduced at the start of the year. The biggest win at the slot was $2.5 million while the “least lucky” player won a price of $1.34 million.

If you like to try your hand at the French-Spanish tables or want to see whether you could become the next casino millionaire, give PokerStars a visit today.

Bitcoin.com Casino Starts Accepting Bitcoin Cash

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Bitcoin.com – the website behind one of the most successful Bitcoin wallet apps – recently began accepting Bitcoin Cash for its online gambling portal. After scraping its standard Bitcoin casino website and going back to more traditional forms of Bitcoin gambling, the site has now introduced a separate address for those looking to wager their Bitcoin Cash coins.

BCH Roulette, Craps, and More

Although still in its early stage, the adoption of Bitcoin Cash by online operators of Bitcoin casino games is slowly increasing. Bitcoin.com is the latest operator to introduce the newly created cryptocurrency to its website in an effort to provide its players with more convenience when it comes to depositing or withdrawing from the platform.

According to an official press release from Bitcoin.com casino, the operator has chosen Bitcoin Cash for a number of practical reasons, including lower banking fees. Other advantages of using Bitcoin Cash outlined by the casino are faster transactions and payment confirmations as well as an increased number of possible transactions.

The range of games available to Bitcoin Cash players at the website is the same as when you play with Bitcoin. Thus, you can enjoy a game of Video Poker with a 200 BCH Jackpot at the website but you can also have a go at its Slot, Blackjack, Roulette Craps, Keno, and Dice games. The most popular option seems to be the BCH Slots, which have been played by over 200,000 times thus far, followed by BCH Roulette, Dice, and Craps.

Another adopter of Bitcoin Cash is mBit casino, which introduced BCH near the end of 2017. But unlike Bitcoin.com, mBit Casino incorporated the cryptocurrency along with Litecoin and Dogecoin, with plans to introduce Ethereum by the end of this month. Philip Aaker, CEO of mBit Casino, likewise cited lower transaction fees and faster payments as the main reason why the operator decided to introduce altcoins to their system.

No Registration Needed

Bitcoin.com is a popular hub for Bitcoin supporters that not only offers a gaming platform but also an all-inclusive Bitcoin hub that comes with a wallet service, forum, and its own news platform. Back in 2015, the site’s owner was revealed to be Roger Ver – one of the strongest and earliest supporters of Bitcoin who was also nicknamed “Bitcoin Jesus” and is often called a “Bitcoin evangelist” as well.

Although a passionate supporter of Bitcoin, in December 2017 Ver spoke to CNBC about turning his focus towards Bitcoin Cash which he believed to be faster and cheaper than Bitcoin. The site’s adoption of Bitcoin Cash is likely the result of Ver’s new-found approval of the offshoot cryptocurrency.

Apart from the introduction of a new coin, the casino section of the website remains untouched. The site still offers provably fair games and a completely anonymous way of wagering your Bitcoin that requires no registration whatsoever, much like the old Satoshi Dice games. If you’re interested in browsing through the offer, you can use this link to visit Bitcoin.com casino. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more diverse and modern gambling platform that takes both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, feel free to check out mBit Casino instead.

Amatic Slot Brings 19.2 BTC Win to Russia at BitStarz Casino

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Less than a month has passed after New Year’s eve and BitStarz Casino is already adding another memorable win to its hall of fame. After a pretty successful and publicized year of big wins, the casino is showcasing yet another lucky player this week who hit a Jackpot of over 12 Bitcoins in a game that most players have probably forgotten it existed – Amatic’s Book of Fortune.  Get the scoop on the win and fresh details on the latest promo offers at BitStarz below.

Russian Player Hits it Big

Bitcoin casinos have long been a safe haven for Russian players who have to deal with gambling restrictions in their country.  Well, not only did BitStarz helped one lucky player enjoy some Bitcoin slot fun on the platform but they also helped the unidentified punter win 12.9 BTC, or $279,000 in USD at the time of winning.

The Book of Fortune might not be the most visually appealing of games but it certainly proved that looks can be deceiving. Featuring outdated animations and sound samples as well as an old-school mechanism that asks you to “collect” each win you make, Book of Fortune is one of those games that take you back to the early days of virtual slot machines. However, despite its retro feel, it comes with an interesting set of modern extras, including Expanding Wilds, Scatters, and a Free Spins round that can be re-triggered.

Being a highly volatile slot, the game challenged a lucky Russian player who managed to work the slot in a way that “few have done before”, according to the casino. Likely triggering multiple bonus features and a confirmed 1,000x multiplier, the fortunate player was able to scoop the impressive jackpot, ensuring a great start to the new year.

Marketing manager of the casino, Srdjan Kapor, commented on the win by saying that they are proud to be hosting the best of Amatic games, the Book of Fortune “certainly being one of the biggest” the casino offers.  Back in October, it was another Amatic slot game – the Diamond Cats – that brought a BitStarz player a similarly impressive jackpot of 10 BTC.

Join the Wars for Wager-Free Prizes!

If you want to try your luck on Amatic’s slots, you’ll be happy to hear that the casino also offers other ways to get rewarded for enjoying slots, in case you don’t hit any jackpots on your own. Namely, each week the casino offers the Slot Wars tournament where punters get a chance to compete against each other by playing various games and win a share of a prize pool with €1,000 in cash prizes and 250 Free Spins. To compete in the races, all you have to do is play between Saturday and Sunday and watch your progress on the official tournament leaderboard.

And even if you feel like switching things up and playing Baccarat, Blackjack, or Poker instead, the casino will still give you a shot at winning some tournament prizes with its weekly Table Wars tournament where the first prize is €500 in cash in BTC equivalent. And the best of all is that all tournament prizes offer wager-free rewards, including the slot competitions.

If you like to check out the tournaments or try Amatic’s lucky slot game, you can use this link to check out BitStarz Casino.

Russia to Legalize Trading on Bitcoin Exchanges

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

It seems that Bitcoin casino players in Russia might see some relief coming in their homeland as the Russian government reveals new plans to authorize cryptocurrency buying and selling in the Federation. Should the newly reported proposals be realized by the authorities, Bitcoin users in the Federation will be allowed to trade freely, although not without any limits.

New Draft Bill Revealed

According to Newsweek, the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation has prepared a new draft bill that will authorize trading cryptocurrencies on “official exchanges”.  The news were shared after Russia’s Deputy Finance Minister, Alexei Moiseev, informed reporters last Tuesday that the Ministry of  Finance is supporting the legalization of cryptocurrency trading on organized trading platforms and exchanges in the country.

According to Moiseev, the Ministry is hoping to standardize the buying and selling of cryptocurrencies  and set limits to the trades but not govern the trading or prohibit it, the idea being that users will be obliged to buy and sell only on official exchanges. The Ministry will be submitting the drafted bill for a vote in February at the Federal Assembly where it will have to be approved first.

Confirming the words of Moiseev were Bank of Russia representatives who informed the RNS (Rambler News Service) that the Bank and the Ministry have had talks on the possible legalization of cryptocurrency trading in organized platforms. According to the Bank of Russia, the new bill is expected to open the door to more investments in the country as well as liberalize trading.

Shifting Perspectives

When it comes to cryptocurrencies, the Russian government has had conflicting opinions on the matter. Only a couple of months ago, Russia’s head of the Ministry of Communications, Nikolay Nikiforov, said that the Federation would “never” make Bitcoin legal. There were also reports of banning Bitcoin exchanges as well as ideas to restrict “ordinary people” from trading cryptocurrencies.  The deputy of the Bank of Russia Sergey Shvetsov even went as far as to call Bitcoin a pyramid scheme.

However, now even President Putin has openly expressed the need for regulation while speaking to the Russian news agency TASS. As reported by the Evening Standard, Putin told the media house that cryptocurrencies are “not secure” and that a new legislation will “be definitely required in future”. According to Putin, the government is seeking efficient regulation so that it will not be directly responsible for any problems “people can get into” by trading cryptocurrencies.

President Putin also expressed concerns that cryptocurrencies are “not backed by anything” and therefore cannot be used to store value. With that in mind, the government is planning to regulate the sector by outlining what can and cannot be done, with further guidelines possible if there are still problems to be resolved after the legalization.

If Russia’s legislation proves to be effective, other important markets like South Korea, whose authorities recently revealed to be still open to the idea of banning trading, might also follow suit to regulate the trading process more efficiently.

Cryptocurrency Betting in US on the Rise

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

One of the most obvious benefits Bitcoin provided to its users worldwide was the ability to privately fund online activities and bypass any online restrictions and monitoring. While this benefit was abused to some extent in the beginning, it has also opened up the door for a new large-scale market to emerge – Bitcoin gambling.

One of the latest reports that show the growth of this market was posted by Bloomberg BNA on Tuesday and it showcases a 40% growth in cryptocurrency betting in one of the biggest online crypto-betting sites.

Cryptocurrencies – a Safe Bet for Operators

Bitcoin, along with other cryptocurrencies (more recently), have provided a safe way to gamble or bet online for players in markets like the US or Russia where online gambling was heavily restricted by local authorities. The growing use of cryptocurrencies for betting over the years has expectedly driven many leading bookmakers and casinos to adopt the new payment method, some even to set up a business that is solely funded by digital currencies.

In one of their latest reports, Bloomberg BNA spoke to John Milton, a marketing manager of online sportsbook Bookmaker.eu which had implemented cryptocurrencies in 2015. The site, which mostly attracts US bettors (80.01%) and bettors from Canada (9.30%), has noted a significant increase in cryptocurrency betting over the past three years.

According to Milton, the adoption of cryptocurrencies was “swift” throughout 2015-2017 for the bookmaker. In 2015, only 10% of users on the platform chose to make a deposit in cryptocurrencies and only 8% of total users withdrew with the same method.  For comparison, by the end of last year a total of 42% had made a deposit using cryptocurrencies on the site and a staggering 85% chose to withdraw to a cryptocurrency wallet. By the end of 2018, however, the sportsbook expects the number of such transactions to grow to a full 100%.

For now, statistics from other popular betting platforms are unknown. The media outlet also reached out to other popular online bookmakers for a comment on the matter but none chose to respond back to the request.

Bitcoin Gambling – A Billion-Dollar Market

Another interesting report from 2017 shows that the Bitcoin Casino/Sportsbook market has grown rapidly since the first Bitcoin gambling websites started appearing online. In 2013 alone, around 50% of all Bitcoin transactions were made for the purpose of online betting.  At the same year, another report showed that gambling transactions were, at the least, 10 times higher than transactions made in dark-web marketplaces which were long considered one of the key uses of Bitcoin by influential media.

According to online numbers, since 2014 an estimated amount of 3.7 million Bitcoin has been wagered by the spring of 2017 and over 24.5 billion bets were made with Bitcoin at online betting and gambling sites. This is yet a small number when compared to the entire online gaming industry, which had an annual volume of $45.86 billion during 2016, but nevertheless shows that Bitcoin is playing an important role in the online gaming scene.

  • Places 6-10 – 250 points
  • Places 11-15 – 125 points
  • Places 16-20 – 75 points

Bitcoin Cash Conversion and 150% Welcome Bonus

If you’ve owned Bitcoin prior to the fork and got some Bitcoin Cash to spend, BTC Casino can offer you a deal to swap in your BCH for mBTC through a current exchange rate. Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are the only available currencies at the casino, for the time being, but you can only convert Bitcoin Cash to mBTC for your deposits and not to actually play in BCH.

There are plenty of games to spend your BTC on at the casino, most of which are provided by NetEnt, Endorphina, and Novomatic. However, if you’re looking for table games, you will only have a limited number of options to choose from as this is mostly a Bitcoin slots casino. On the plus side, registration takes only 15 seconds and you can send money right in within a minute of registering.

If you’re interested in taking part in the Festive Race or browsing the game offer, feel free to give BTC Casino a visit.
