This week betting firm BetCoin has announced the launch of a new Bitcoin powered poker platform, which will allow punters to play the popular style of card games with the cryptocurrency.
The new platform is multiplayer and designed in HTML5 format, giving players maximum accessibility to the app. The software will support free rolls, custom avatars, rewards, and tournaments. For a short time the platform will also feature 0% rake at BetCoin.
A statement from BetCoin regarding the launch read: "It's not long before fiat players in legacy casinos around the world see the attraction of Bitcoin for online gambling - my prediction is that within 10 years fiat-based casinos will have to adapt or die, and our offering makes us poised to grab the bullish Bitcoin Gambling market by the horns and continue to expand our platform to keep us at the top of the heap."
"Our casino - and our multiplayer poker suite in particular - make BetCoin an attractive package for any player converting to Bitcoin."
