Vegas Crest Casino Adds Booongo Slots for US Market

Online gamblers in the United States are set for a treat thanks to the addition of Booongo’s impressive online slot portfolio to the Vegas Crest Casino catalog. The Vista Gaming-owned online casino operator will be rolling out gaming content from the software developer and its US-based customers are going to be among those that will be able to access the new offerings.

Vegas Crest Casino which is licensed by the gambling authority of Curacao is among the few industry players that accept players from the United States – the country does not allow online gambling operators within its borders to offers online gambling services to its people except in a few states where the practice has been officially legalized. Regardless, gamblers in the country are still able to enjoy online gambling on international online casinos without worrying about a lot of legalities since the law mostly speaks about the operators themselves and not the players.

With the over 40 Booongo slots that it will be adding to its already existing massive library of more than 1,000 online games from some of the leading software developers in the industry, Vegas Crest Casino will be even more appealing to online gamblers both across the United States and the rest of the world. In the United States, the online gaming platform will be the exclusive source of Booongo games which means that players who like slot machines will be swarming the site to get a piece of the action.

According to the casino software developer’s chief executive, the new online slots are set to “immerse players in a rich atmosphere with exciting game features and innovative gameplay” which simply means that they are among the very best that the global online gambling industry has to offer. Very few online casinos can match up to these offerings.

Booongo’s Quest to Concur the World

Having been in the online gaming industry for years, Booongo has been able to build a strong reputation for itself as one of the best suppliers of 2D and 3D online gambling content on the planets. The content it offers does not just look good but also offers a ton of great things including unique and authentic features as well as innovative game mechanics and math models. One of the most popular features is the game spectator mode which allows players to play one-on-one tournaments live.

In addition to having some of the most polished games in the iGaming space, Booongo also boasts of catering to very large audiences in all corners of the planet. In fact, the supplier’s gamers currently support a total of 18 languages with more set to be added in the near future. Its expansion to the United States’ online gambling market is just the beginning.

Kryptium Brings Decentralized P2P Betting to the Blockchain

While online betting is one of the most profitable businesses on the planet, the main, if not the only, beneficiaries are the large centralized online gaming operators that run the industry. Well, not anymore. A new platform and dApp referred to as Kryptium is now allowing online gamers from all over the world to connect with each and place bets – this peer-to-peer gaming model eliminates the need for a centralized odds-makes otherwise referred to as the ‘house’. This means that is possible for almost anyone from any part of the world to connect and make bets with the new application.

How It Works

One of the most powerful features of the blockchain and crypto networks is their ability to connect people directly. The Kryptium dApp exploits this feature to allow gamblers to make event-based wagers on just about any event that they may want – these range from fantasy games, typical sporting events such as poker games to even the outcomes of popular TV shows such as Game of Thrones. Kryptium allows players to place three types of bet on upcoming events. These are:

Pool Bets. – These are the kind where players bet on the predicted outcomes with all the bets being placed into a single pool. The players whose bets correctly predict the outcome of the event then share the pool. Moreover, the odds for this type of bets are dynamic and are hence dependent on the number of players in the pool and the wager amounts that each of them places.

Head-to-Head Bets. – For this type bet, one of the players opens up a bet for which they define the odds that another player is supposed to match. This model is perhaps the purest one in existence since the gamblers are completely free from any unfavorable and centrally defined odds.

Multi-Player Bets. – If you are a high roller, then this kind of bets will best suit you. In this case, the player who defines the odds does the same as they would in the Head-to-Head bets but this time, multiple players are required to match.

The Perks

Other than the aforementioned bet options, Kryptium customers are also treated to even more perks that are not provided by the traditional online betting platforms. For instance, the players can expect top-notch security not just because the dApp is based on the Ethereum blockchain but also because the platform has gone out of its way to further enhance it to ensure that player funds are protected.

Furthermore, customers will also appreciate the platform’s transparency, the exception user interface that it offers, the extremely low commissions as well as the advanced level of control that it gives them. That is very hard to beat.

A Look at the Crypto-Mining Smartphone Trend

Smartphone innovation has been at the very top of technological trends for over a decade now and just when we thought we had seen it all, we have once again come to see that there is still more to come. From the folding phones to the 5G phones that were showcased at the recent Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona Spain, tech enthusiasts were treated to bizarre and incredibly unique takes on the gadgets that have nowadays become a part of our day-to-day lives.

That said, one of the standout presentations at the MWC this year was the world’s first ever crypto mining smartphone. There have, of course, been other crypto-related smartphone innovations in the recent past but all of them mainly involved phones that could support blockchain technology. Great examples of these included the HTC Exodus 1 which was launched at a fairly reasonable starting price and could be purchased using either fiat currency or digital currency. The company hoped the new innovation would help them to steer the mobile and crypto industries to the new era of the next internet but it remains to be seen how this will all play out – the company’s mobile division has been on the rocks for quite some time now.

Wings Mobile, an Italian company headed by Antonio Milio, an Italian entrepreneur, has however chosen to take a totally different approach with by unveiling a smartphone with crypto-mining capabilities. Dubbed the Minephone WX (Wings WX), the smartphone will reward its user with a “prize” amounting to up to 2 ETH (Ethereum) on a monthly basis. This is some serious value, especially because Ethereum (ETH) and bitcoin (BTC) remain to be the top most valuable digital currencies on the planet.

How It Works

The limited-edition Minephone WX is basically a regular smartphone that uses glasses and steel to deliver on both durability and great visual appeal. At its core is a high-performance MediaTek Helio P60 oct-core SoC that powers the phones operating system and its “mining operations”.  It also has 128 GB of internal storage, 8 GB RAM and two high resolution (24 + 16 MP) rear cameras.

Obviously, there is no specialized mining equipment that can fit it into existing smartphones in order to allow mining on the Minephone WX more efficient. As such, the actual mining occurs in a third-party mining pool which the phone is connected to through a Smart Contract. The phone then receives a daily reward based on the mining power contracted.

Now, this is definitely innovation at its best but it is still hard to see how it will all play – maybe it will be a success among crypto and tech enthusiasts, or maybe not.

OneHash Announces the Release of New Bitcoin Dice Game

OneHash is a mutual bitcoin betting platform that aims to be the world’s leading mutual bitcoin betting platform. The platform focused on two broad kinds of betting, that is, sports betting and market, and since it is a mutual platform, all the odds are created by the user’s themselves as opposed to a centralized oddsmaker authority. It features bets on all major traditional sports like basketball, hockey, soccer, and rugby with esports betting being one of the latest additions to its neat portfolio. Market betting on OneHash’s platform involves betting on cryptocurrency prices as well as the prices on foreign currencies.

Sports betting aside, the platform also offers other gambling games including crypto slot titles and a dice game, the latter of which was just recently launched. Known as CyberDice, the new game is the platform’s attempt at keeping up with the competition in the Dice market. The dice game is a huge step towards strengthening the platform’s leadership position in the bitcoin entertainment market. Some of the best things that set CyberDash apart from all the rests is the improved gameplay and new features that it offers – these include regular contests, leaderboards, as well as chat communities which go a long way in strengthening the community and making it more vibrant.

More Features

The community features and contests that are featured in the game are just a part of the gaming experience but they are not all that makes it as good as the company claims it is. In essence, most of the other features are designed to appeal to the most demanding games who are always keen to see if the games they play have:

  • A provably fair system
  • Regular faucet
  • Low house edge
  • 100% mobile-friendliness
  • Unique design and UX
  • Affiliation program
  • 24/7 active support
  • Full security

Aside from all the technical details and comprehensive features, the game was further designed to offer the best possible experience, something the developer achieved by embedding it in the post-apocalyptic cyberpunk universe. The developers of CyberDash even introduced the Oracle concept which essentially foretells the future to players who are not afraid to know it. These added to the beautiful graphics and strong storytelling techniques make the game extremely fun to play.

For players who are concerned about fairness, CyberDice was designed for a wide range of users with absolute transparency being the project’s main inspiration. In fact, users are even able to check the integrity of every single roll and confirm that there is zero manipulation. The developer has also promised that the game will be improved constantly and many more features will be available in the next few weeks.

In fact, the company claims that its new and improved site offers load speeds of up to eight times what its competition has to offer – the new mobile-first site loads in just two seconds, something that the new generation of tech-savvy players will certainly appreciate especially because such load speeds were unheard of in the online casino gaming scene.

We listen closely to every element of feedback we receive and have delivered on our promises with an exceptional product,” Tauri Tiitsaar, Head of Casino at Bitcasino.io, commented.

Still, on the customer-centric design of the casino, Bitcasino.io also incorporates machine learning into the revamped platform.

Furthermore, players will find it much easier to search for their favorite games based on the names, types, themes and even the game providers.

The new and improved site includes many other revamped features that will be implemented gradually due to the need for player feedback. However, in addition to the ones mentioned above, one of the improvements that players can look forward to in the coming weeks is the enhanced search feature that will allow them to look for games based on Return to Player (RTP) percentage, volatility, and hit frequency.

BTCXE Also in the Mix

For players who are new to crypto, Bitcasino.io has included BTCXE, the new and sizzling currency converter that turns fiat currency to bitcoin (BTC).

WHIRL Debuts Karma Driven Blockchain Crowdfunding Platform

Over the past couple of years, some of the most mind-blowing innovations have been those that are related to crypto and blockchain technology, both of which are still are making waves in a number of different sectors. One of the latest and most polished developments is the launch of WHIRL, a socially driven crowdfunding platform that operates on the blockchain. Created by an all-star team of accomplished crowdfunding veterans, blockchain gurus, and non-profit experts, the platform will give the world a new way of financing dreams and obligations, while simultaneously introducing a truly revolutionary incentive system that is designed to encourage giving. It is also expected to significantly maximize campaign success.

WHIRL, which is currently powered by a team of 20, launches following years of research and after one and half years of development – this involved, among other things, legal vetting of the platform as the global market’s very first credible blockchain-powered consumer crowdfunding platform.

How It Works

According to the WHIRL team, the platform can be used to finance almost anything, albeit within reason. These may range from personal goals to medical bills, business ventures, and even scientific endeavors. In essence, WHIRL gives individuals, groups or organizations the ability to fund any relevant venture by simply being charitable as opposed to having them take out loans or begging for handouts.

As mentioned earlier, WHIRL is backed by the blockchain which means that it is open to everyone on the planet. The platform also guarantees an exceptional 100 percent success rate to all of the projects that are listed under its campaign – this is to be achieved using a fair and transparent queue system which limits the number that each campaign has listed at any given time. Only those that have a history of contribution on the platform are allowed to create fundraising projects.

WHIRL’s blockchain is powered by WRL tokens that are further supported by the concept of Karma, a reward system that supports the giving economy within the platform. Karma points are issued to contributors with every dollar spent on another person’s campaign earning the contributor between 7 and 20 Karma points. Moreover, in order to launch one’s own crowdfunding campaign, a threshold number of Karma points as to be attained with the size and duration of any given campaign being determined by the number of Karma points accumulated.

Reshaping Crowdfunding

Over the last decade or so, crowdfunding has stagnated significantly primarily due to fraud, oversaturation as well as very frustrating declining success rates. Keeping this in mind, WHIRL aims to solve all of these problems by simply having a limited number of campaigns running at any given time and incentivizing backers with its fair and a transparent Karma points system. This is essentially a classic embodiment of the saying “What goes around comes back around.”

Renowned Bitcoin Conference CoinGeekWeek Heads to London

Considered to be one of the most respected crypto-regulated organizations, CoinGeekWeek has earned a lot of praise for the immense effort that it has been putting into ensuring global adoption of Bitcoin BCH. The company has dedicated itself to campaigning for developments that will see to it that the digital currency follows the right path towards being recognized as a legitimate means of exchange as well as a legitimate cryptocurrency.

The cryptocurrency news portal has recently announced on its website plans to host their first ever Bitcoin Cash (BCH) conference and the venue for the conference will be London’s The Mermaid London. This conference will run from November 27 through to November 30 and will focus on all things bitcoin including designated slots for miners, developers as well as retailers.

“We are delighted to host this inaugural event at a time when the cryptocurrency topic is being discussed on a global platform. Over recent years, The Mermaid London’s position as a leading venue of choice for the FinTech industry has strengthened following a rise of new business wins, and we are excited to see how this event will continue to raise our profile within this growing sector,” Alicia Duncan, the general manager at the Mermaid London commented.

To put all this into perspective, the three-day conference will involve several seminars each highlighting different effort to enhance BCH mining activities – expert participation is also going to be feature majorly so as to enlighten miners on how they can get the most out of their mining efforts.

Moreover, the conference is also targeting various aspects of BCH and the roles that the digital currency has played in the global digital retail economy, which is one of its major foundations. BCH is the only digital currency that was created with global and mainstream usability in mind, that is, the goal was to make it usable by everyone and accessible from virtually everywhere in the world. With such strong motivators and clearly defined goal, the digital currency has continued to receive more support from both cryptocurrency traders and merchants who have seen the potential of its superfast network capabilities as well as its incredibly low transaction costs.

Extending Aspects of the Hong Kong Conference

CoinGeekWeek just recently held a conference in Hong Kong and according to Calvin Ayre, the company’s founder, the three-day London conference will be more of an extension of their previous conference.

“Over recent years, The Mermaid London’s position as a leading venue of choice for the FinTech industry has strengthened following a rise of new business wins, and we are excited to see how this event will continue to raise our profile within this growing sector,” Ayre said.

With just a few weeks left until the conference finally kicks offs, there has been an overwhelming number of attendance reservations especially from the enterprises who are looking to get into the crypto ecosystem.

CryptoSlots.com and BTC HEAT Go Live with New Offerings

Cryptocurrency-only casino, CryptoSlots.com is once again all the buzz in the online gaming scene thanks to its new innovative original slot machine title known as Coin Rush. The new slot game lets players spin through familiar cryptocurrency symbols in a bid to make winning combinations across 20 active paylines. Naturally, the bitcoin logo is the highest paying Coin Rush symbol, but players will also be in for some big wins if their combinations include Litecoin, Monero or any other high-value coin in the slot game. In a typical sense, all of Coin Rush’s symbols have values that correspond to what they are actually worth in the real world.

Launched in May this year, the Slotland Entertainment backed CryptoSlots.com debuted with a robust selection of outstanding slot machine and video poker titles all, all of which were proven to be provably fair. Just like the online casino’s all other offerings, Coin Rush is packed with tons of bonus extras that include Free Spins gifting up to 99 bonus rounds as well as several Double Wild Symbols.

“Our casino is perfectly tailored to the wants and needs of the crypto community,” CryptoSlots manager, Michael Hillary, commented on the new product. “Our players will love the theme of this new game, and its generous Free Spins Bonus.”

Coin Rush and the entire website, in general, is great for crypto users since, unlike many other online casinos, the players will only be required to provide their email address and consent to a prompt asking them if they are of the legal gambling age. Other than the unmatched level anonymity that the site is offering, players will also be able to access extremely fast payouts through BTC, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin – more are expected to be added for Coin Rush gaming soon.

BTC HEAT Debuts Free Bitcoin Slot Games

BTC HEAT is a newly launched online gaming site that allows players to enjoy free slots and other market investment games. On signing up, the players are given free spins which they are allowed to refill every three hours. But that is not even the best part.

While players do not need to make any deposit at BTC HEAT, they are given the chance to win real bitcoin (BTC) which can then be withdrawn to specific wallets. How is this possible? Well, BTC HEAT monetizes the site through ads, that is, it displays videos, graphics, and offers. The profits gotten from these advertisements are then put in the main prize pool. The more players spin the reels, the more they add to the site’s pool and this gives them an even higher chance of winning some bitcoin.

Signing up is also pretty easy as all that the players need is a valid bitcoin wallet address – this makes it a very safe gaming platform as players do not have to give out their personal information in order to play. Moreover, the anonymity the site offers is incredibly appealing, especially for gambling and crypto enthusiasts.

AGS Gets Pa. Slot Machine & Table Games Manufacturer License

AGS, formerly known as the American Gaming Solutions, has recently been awarded a license to manufacture slot machines and table games by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. That said, the electronic gaming devices and table products designer and supplier will be able to deploy its gaming products in all of the Keystone State’s 12 licensed brick-and-mortar casinos, something that David Lopez, the company’s president and chief executive described as a huge milestone.

“The two Pennsylvania licenses represent a huge milestone for AGS, as we continue to expand our presence into new markets for our company. This is huge news for AGS and we can’t wait to start talking to Pennsylvania’s gaming operators about how we can deliver a great player experience and operating efficiencies with our innovative slot and table solutions,” David Lopez commented.

AGS expects to begin deploying its slot machines and table game products in the aforementioned Pennsylvanian casinos early next year, which is perfect timing since a number of the betting activities will kick off at around the same time considering how the statewide gambling expansion plans have been going so far – the move to award AGS with the manufacturing licenses follows from last week’s announcement that the gaming control board had approved the first two sports betting licenses in the state.

Prior to that, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board also approved interactive gaming licenses for a good number of the casinos that had applied. Hopefully, the entry of AGS into the Commonwealth’s gaming industry will trigger more improvements through collaborative efforts to deliver great gaming experiences to customers. Dauphin County-based Hollywood Casino and the Bensalem-based Park Casino, the first two casinos to be awarded sports betting licenses by the PGCB, will hopefully have their sports betting operations up and running by the time AGS begins to roll out its products but this does not dispel the opportunity for collaboration. In fact, all things considered, it is inevitable.

At the moment, the Commonwealth’s gaming industry consists of two resort casinos as well as 10 standalone and racetrack casinos, all generating about $1.4 billion in slot machine and table game tax revenue.

Why AGS?

It came as no surprise that the gaming control board chose to award AGS the manufacturer license. This is primarily because the gaming product designer and supplier has made a name for itself as global innovation powerhouse with a reputation for creating a diverse variety of immersive and entertaining gaming experiences that appeal to several different kinds of players.

The company has often leaned more towards the Class II Native American gaming market but this has not stopped it from growing and developing a customer-centric culture that has led it to become a leading all-inclusive commercial gaming supplier.

Google Lifts Its Ban on Cryptocurrency Advertisements

Earlier this year (in March), Google announced a cryptocurrency ad ban that it went on to roll out in June – these were intended to protect its consumers and involved wallets, trading services, and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). This is all about to change with the company on September 25 ending the ban on cryptocurrency advertisements.

In a new update to its advertising policies, the company emphasizes that at the ads that would be allowed would only be those of “regulated” trading sites.

“The Google Ads policy on Financial products and services will be updated in October 2018 to allow regulated cryptocurrency exchanges to advertise in the United States and Japan,” Google explained. “Advertisers will need to be certified with Google for the specific country in which their ads will serve. Advertisers will be able to apply for certification once the policy launches in October. This policy will apply globally to all accounts that advertise these financial products. For more details, see About restricted financial products certification. The Financial products and services page will be updated once the policy goes into effect.”

Google was one of the tech companies that moved to prohibit cryptocurrency advertisements alongside Twitter and Facebook, though the latter later relaxed some of the restrictions it had placed on cryptocurrency-related advertisements. Google’s ban was so wide-ranging that it affected offerings from both legitimate wallet services and trading professionals.

This crackdown on crypto went on to rapidly spread across the internet leading to various bans from other companies, including LinkedIn, MailChimp and Snapchat. Even though this was meant to stop or at least slow down scammers on the internet it also whipped out legitimate blockchain projects which in turn slowed down adoption of digital currencies, stifled promotion and stoked more fears about mainstream acceptance of crypto.

The Reason Is Yet to Be Known

As is it stands, there has not been a clear explanation as to why the tech giant has chosen to lift the ban barely four months after it imposed it. It is speculated that the company believes that the hype that surrounded crypto, as well as the negative side effects associated with the skyrocketing values, have finally died down are at least reduced significantly. Still, it is possible that Google is simply keeping its eye on the prize i.e., the valuable ad money that crypto will bring in.

“We don’t have a crystal ball to know where the future is going to go with cryptocurrencies, but we’ve seen enough consumer harm or potential for consumer harm that it’s an area that we want to approach with extreme caution,” Google’s Scott Spencer said in June when the original ban was rolled out.
