Bitcasino.io details financial growth in 2015

5 April 2016

Bitcasino.io, the first legally licensed and regulated Bitcoin-only online gambling operator in the world, has revealed significant financial growth in only its second full year of business.

The company reported that turnover increased by 1,370% on a year-on-year basis during the 12 months through to December 31, 2015.

Bitcasino.io, which launched its services in January 2014, offered €14 million ($15.9 million) in progressive jackpots in the last year, attracting players from over 140 countries around the world.

The company, which also rolled out a sportsbook in August of last year, said that one of its players secured the largest single win of 274 Bitcoins, worth more than €100,000, on a single spin.

Mark McGuinness, spokesperson for Bitcasino.io, said: “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.

“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.”
