Bitcoin information portal Bitcoin.com has announced the closure of their casino, citing a change in strategy as the reason for the suspending of operations.
The announcement was made through an email to customers and affiliates, and noted that the site will instead focus on blockchain style games. The casino was operated by SoftSwiss, a premium Bitcoin casino platform that powers most of the cryptcurrency friendly betting sites in operation.
The email to players read:
"Dear Bitcoin Casino Player,
Bitcoin.com decided to change the strategy on game offering and we are going to shut down the current casino. If you have funds on your balance account please request a cash out and we will pay you money out immediately.
Softswiss has been a wonderful partner with Bitcoin.com and has lead the legacy gaming industry's adoption of bitcoin. Moving forward Bitcoin.com intends to focus more on blockchain centric games rather than classic casino games that are offered by SoftSwiss and its partners.
Those of you who enjoyed playing slots, card games, roulettes and other casino games at Bitcoin.com may continue to do so in any casino powered by SoftSwiss."
