TonyBet, a leading online casino focused on the European market, has decided to shift gears into becoming a Bitcoin casino. Launched back in 2009 by well-known poker player Antanas “Tony G” Gauga, the site has become a well-known fixture of the European online gambling community. This is mostly because of the company wide range of gambling options, which include live and pre-match sports betting, live casino, and slot gaming services. Tony G takes great care of his baby and he only brings in the best changes.
This is probably the main reason Tony G opened up TonyBet to Bitcoin. Besides being a gambling operator, Tony G is a Member of European Parliament (MEP) and he has been vocal in his support of virtual currencies as a ‘perfect example of innovation,’ with their use being a ‘huge leap forward’, and a ‘huge opportunity.’ With Tony G’s enthusiastic support, TonyBet’s acceptance of Bitcoin was sure to follow.
In implementing the changes, TonyBet worked with the UK & Lithuanian-based SpectroCoin e-wallet. Considering that TonyBet and SpectrCoin share home countries, the partnership is a logical choice. SpectroCoin’s payment system will move bitcoins on and off the site, while Tonybet converts it to fiat currency for playing at the site.
SpectroCoin has proven itself well by handling virtual currency in over 25 countries across Europe and Central Asia. Combined with TonyBet’s reputation for delivering top-notch service, customers can be sure that they will be satisfied with their gaming experience.
TonyBet spokesman Warren Lush announced that the shift to Bitcoin has immediately benefited the gaming site. He has been quoted as saying:
“With the introduction of Bitcoin deposits we saw a dramatic increase in recreational punters and poker players, especially from the Asian countries who have been struggling to transfer their funds before.”
Lush also noted that TonyBet players can benefit from fluctuating Bitcoin prices. Smart players can add more to their bankroll by speculating through the exchange rates. SpectroCoin’s services ensure that all withdrawals and deposits are quick, which is very useful when people want to profit from a market with fluctuating prices.
Accepting Bitcoin also opens up TonyBet to players who only play in an online casino with Bitcoin. Quite a few online gamblers have went all-in with Bitcoin, seeing all that it has to offer to them like anonymous transactions and quick turnaround. This has given the online gaming company a new customer base to service. Overall, TonyBet’s choice to accept decision has only benefited the company.
