The first licensed and regulated Bitcoin-only online gambling operator worldwide revealed significant financial growth in 2015.
Curaçao.- Bitcasino.io, the first legally licensed and regulated Bitcoin-only online gambling operator worldwide, reported significant financial growth in 2015, its second full year of business.
The operator reported a turnover increase of 1,370 percent year-on-year during the 12 months through to December 31, 2015.
Bitcasino.io launched its services over two years ago, in January 2014. The company offered US$15.9 million in progressive jackpots in the last year, luring in players from over 140 countries around the planet.
“Since opening our Bitcoin casino in January 2014, we have witnessed tremendous growth becoming the market leading destination for Bitcoin gaming both on desktop and mobile,” said Mark McGuinness, spokesperson for Bitcasino.io. “2015 was an important year for industry awareness and player acceptance of Bitcoin as a ‘seamless gambling chip’ helped Bitcasino.io become the premier destination for discrete Bitcoin gambling. Many industry observers have referred to Bitcoin as a niche product and a fad. This is far from the reality; Bitcoin gambling continues to gain mainstream acceptance amongst players, particularly the millennial demographic and it will continue its growth trajectory into 2016 and beyond.”
