Players on the BitCasino.io platform will soon have 120 more virtual video slot titles to choose from, after the world’s first legally licensed online Bitcoin-based casino and sportsbook operator partnered with iGaming industry provider Pragmatic Play.
Among the HTML5-powered video slot titles which will be added to BitCasino.io’s already expansive casino game menu are 7 Monkeys, Hot Safari, Lady of the Moon, and Lucky Dragons.
Tomas Toro, who serves as head of marketing for BitCasino.io, issued a statement announcing the new partnership and slot menu expansion:
“We are thrilled to be adding more than one hundred titles from Pragmatic Play to our online casino game portfolio. We believe the new games will be a big hit with our players in Europe, Asia and beyond, and will help bring new customers to our site.”
Yossi Barzely, head of business development for Pragmatic Play, also commented on the deal in the jointly issued statement:
“We are delighted Bitcasino.io has chosen to integrate our thrilling games into its innovative Bitcoin platform. We are very proud of the games we have developed and launched, and believe they will be thoroughly enjoyed by their players.”
BitCasino.io was launched in 2014 to provide a fully-functional online casino platform which utilizes Bitcoin as the common currency, rather than U.S. dollars, English pounds, or another local fiat currency. The site operates under Curacao eGaming License No. 1668/JAZ, issued by the government of Curacao. As such, BitCasino.io bills itself as “the world’s first legally licensed and regulated online Bitcoin casino gaming and sportsbook platform.”
While many existing online casino brands have adopted Bitcoin as a standard banking method, players depositing with the cryptocurrency have their funds converted to the site’s standard currency of choice. When playing on BitCasino.io, however, the actual wagering on slots, table games, and other casino offerings is conducted using Bitcoin itself – which is the preferable model for committed cryptocurrency proponents.
Bitcoin has increasingly become the currency of choice for regular online casino, poker, and video gaming enthusiasts. The removal of third-party oversight from traditional banks during a Bitcoin transaction ensures that the deposit and withdrawal process is easier and more efficient, with none of the delays or holds prompted by regular online financial activity.
With the addition of 120 video slots from Pragmatic Play, BitCasino.io grew its full portfolio of casino game options to more than 1,000 individual games. That number includes products produced by online gaming software providers such as BetSoft, Net Entertainment, and Microgaming’s Quickfire platform.
In addition to its primary online casino product, BitCasino.io also partners with a Bitcoin-based online sportsbook known as SportsBet.io. Both platforms operate concurrently under the CoinGaming.io umbrella, and the addition of Pragmatic Play video slots will cover the entire CoinGaming.io network.
Pragmatic Play is a rising force within the online casino software provider industry, with more than 150 proprietary game concepts developed by its in-house design team. Along with its advanced HTML5-based video slot titles – which include popular concepts like Beowulf, Romeo and Juliet, and Mighty Kong – the company produces online table games like Royale Blackjack and Roulette Crystal.
