BitCasino.io witnessed Saturday the immense support from avid online sports bettors for its new sportsbook that enables World Cup betting without leaving the Bitcoin casino platform.
Developed for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the new service of the Bitcoin casino has reportedly received 80,000 unique visitors while a total of 50 BTC or about $30,000 was spent on bets during the first 48 hours of its pre-launch operation, hinting success for the online gaming platform.
The Bitcoin casino has ensured that its sportsbook is easy to use and appeals even to bettors with small bankrolls by allowing bets of as little as 2 mBTC or approximately $1.
“[Our] sportsbook is not traditional,” said Sergei Verbitski, marketing head at CoinGaming LTD, which handles BitCasino.io. “We built the whole platform by ourselves, so it’s quite fresh and clean.”
It also offers an attractive promotion that awards bettors free 10 mBTC for every deposit, provided that they place a bet of at least 2 mBTC on any of the upcoming matches. Claiming the reward, however, is much simpler because players only need to key in ‘Free Bet Bonus’ in the Live Chat box.
The addition of the Bitcoin-only sportsbook to the array of gambling services offered by BitCasino.io further strengthens its position in the online gambling industry.
Verbitski added that alongside World Cup betting, the casino platform also adds new casino and live dealer games, pushing its total number of Bitcoin games over 160 all in all, and therefore, is now capable of providing more excitement, rewards, and betting action than the other Bitcoin gambling sites.
Meanwhile, according to BitCasino.io, the instant success of its sportsbook has prompted the management to make its sports betting service a permanent feature, where more than 10,000 sporting events each month will be featured after this year’s World Cup finishes.
