Coin Gaming, which operates Bitcasino.io, a top bitcoin casino, has introduced a bitcoin-only sportsbook in anticipation of the Euro 2016 soccer tournament. Sportsbet.io will provide thousands of betting opportunities. The sportsbook provides users the option of betting on an event that is expected to draw at least 1.5 million BTC in bets.
Sportsbet.io will allow players to enter an exclusive competition to win tickets to tournament matches, including the final.
Euro 2016 will host 24 of Europe’s top international soccer teams and will broadcast to 150 million spectators in over 230 territories.
Sportsbet.io, licensed in Curacao, offers a customized, dedicated VIP program featuring 24/7 live chat and a personal hostess to cater to players’ wagering needs.
The sportsbook will include more than 350,000 pre-match events annually, peaking at 70,000 events in prime months. There will be a comprehensive live offering with hundreds of “in-play” markets available on big sports fixtures.
Company spokesperson Joe Jordan said Sportsbet.io, the partner site of Bitcasino.io, plans to provide the same leading position in the bitcoin sports betting market.
“With Bitcasino.io we are used to being the best, and we have high ambitions for Sportsbet.io that will make it the number one bitcoin sports betting destination,” Jordan said. “Bitcasino.io has an average winnings withdrawal time of 2.5 minutes, something that Sportsbet.io plans to replicate. When it can take upwards of 24 hours for some traditional bookmakers to pay out, we believe this will give us real differentiation in the market.”
Sportsbet.io, with an estimated two-thirds of bets made on mobile devices, provides first-rate UX and UI across all platforms.
Players can bet with their own bitcoins or exchange bitcoins for local currency on the site. Sportsbet.io integrates with Coinify and Cubits.
“Our focus is not only to offer great odds and promotions, as demonstrated by our competition to win tickets to the final of Euro 2016, but to excel on the player experience,” Jordan said. “We are providing a personalized VIP program, whereby customers are allocated their own hostess, to provide a tailored service that gives players the level of attention they deserve.”
Bitcasino.io announced more than €14,000,000 worth of progressive jackpots on offer, a 1370% turnover increase in 2015 compared to 2014, and more significant milestones reached over the past year, CCN.com reported last month.
