Betplay.io has launched an industry-first cryptocurrency online casino site that supports Bitcoin and Tether USD.
Deposits and withdrawals using Bitcoin can take advantage of the Bitcoin Lightning network which enables near instant transactions and virtually zero fees.
“At Betplay.io we aim to have the best player experience on the market and fast payments is an important part of this,” said a Betplay.io spokesperson.
“Bitcoin and crypto in general is changing the whole world, including the online casino industry, but right now we are seeing Bitcoin transactions taking longer time to confirm and fees above $10. Therefore, Bitcoin Lightning payments will be an absolute game-changer by making deposits and withdrawals significantly faster and cheaper for players.”
Betplay.io has partnered up with some of the gaming sector’s most prominent content suppliers and will at launch include a number of top tier studios such as Quickspin, Nolimit City, Blueprint Gaming, Thunderkick, Red Tiger and more. Live casino will be provided through Betgames.tv and Ezugi with more studios to be added shortly, including Pragmatic Play Live Casino and Evolution.
“We don’t think having the best payment option for Bitcoin is enough, we also want to have the best games,” a Betplay.io spokesperson said.
“That is why we have partnered up with top providers on the market with the goal of having the largest offering of games to the crypto community.”
In addition to Bitcoin, Betplay.io will also offer Tether USD as currency.
