Bitcoin.com Closes its Casino

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."

Casino Listings will update this story as more developments arise.

I don't know nothing about these "blockchain centric games" and it seems like a strange decision to me but apparently they do think it's the better way for them to continue their business so we have to respect their decision I guess.

Geez that didn't last long. They only opened last month I think.

Blockchain style games are games where you pay an amount of Bitcoin to an address and they generate a random number that determines whether you win or lose, then either pay your winnings or nothing. The most famous example is called Satoshi Dice. Its really no different from slots or keno or any other RNG games, just without the flashy graphics.

I received this email as well and I was a little upset cause I liked this casino and I had made a withdrawal too, so this is a little upsetting.. But then again- there are so many casinos so it's not a big loss.

I understand Ed, sound like a cheaper way (for them) to take your money, heard abut Satoshi Dice but never tried it, lost all my coins at sportsbook & casino called Cloudbet wast week, really wanted to try the quickness of their withdrawals but was never able to do it.
