The pioneering cryptocurrency is big business in iGaming, as winning jackpot amounts speak for themselves.
Eight years ago, Bitcoin (BTC) was unleashed as the world's first cryptocurrency. The applications that it could be used for were, at first, not understood, but it had potential to change and improve services in a number of industries, and one of the biggest being the iGaming industry. Bitcoin is now becoming a fast-track payment method at the leading online casinos and gambling sites and is proving to be one of the most valuable.
At the time of this article, 1 Bitcoin was valued at around $5.5k and for the last few weeks it has been hovering around that amount and is expected to rise even higher. That is incredibly good news for players that regularly spin the reels using Bitcoin, and for online casinos that are based on the cryptocurrency.
One of the biggest online casinos that have adopted Bitcoin as the primary payment method is BitCasino. The casino has provided some very promising information about the big wins that their members have netted using Bitcoin. Even better still is the fact that their winning jackpots continue to grow after they make a withdrawal.
Some of the biggest wins in the history of 'Bitcoin Casinos' have happened at BitCasino, and the amounts are truly somewhat of a shock. The biggest winners have won big by playing games from some of the leading software developers like NetEnt, Endorphina, and GameArt.
The legendary 'Sparks' slot game by NetEnt was the biggest win with Bitcoin and rewarded one very lucky player with 181.12 BTC, or USD $1,033,298.66. Sparks is a very fun game from the 3D games specialists with 5-reels, 3-rows, and 20-paylines. The second largest pot to be won with BTC was on the thrilling Dragon King slot by GameArt, which takes players on a journey through ancient China. The winning jackpot was worth 178.12 BTC, (USD $1,016,183.51). This trend of huge wins continues with a very popular sports game, also by NetEnt, entitled Football Champions Cup, one of the fastest paced games online today. It has become very popular due to its special features of Overlay Wild substitutions, Free Spins, and a Bonus Game. The big goal scorer netted 140.84 BTC.
