Why Gambling and Cryptocurrencies are a Uniquely Beautiful Match 92

Many casinos now accept cryptocurrencies, which is a great development especially for people that appreciate the convenience that technology brings. In fact, many people equate the use of cryptocurrencies in online gambling portals to a match made in heaven and every gambler who has knowledge about blockchain technology should look embrace cryptocurrencies at one of many sites now accepting this form of deposit.

It is easy to follow the arguments of the proponents of Bitcoin and its use in gambling. Some of the reasons they offer are:

  • You Can Use Cryptocurrencies where Fiat Currencies aren’t Allowed
  • Players that live in jurisdictions where authorities have severely limited online gambling are often unable to gamble on real money online casino or bingo games. And, this is easy to enforce because the said authorities only have to make it illegal for players to cash their wins using banks to make the bans effective. However, because of the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies, such players are able to play various casino games with real money stakes.

  • Cheaper Costs of Transactions
  • Transactions fees for depositing Bitcoin into or withdrawing them from your gaming account is negligible. This is because this method of payment eliminates the litany of banks and other financial merchants that under the traditional methods of transactions, are always waiting to have a slice of your win every time you use their services. In the end, players on Bitcoin casinos save a lot of money that they can then add to their gaming war chest.

  • No Chargebacks
  • Chargebacks present what is probably the worst experience a gambler wants to go through. Yet, they are a norm even in the highly organized gambling ecosystems of the U.K. Bitcoin casinos have eliminated chargebacks because it isn’t possible to reverse blockchain transactions. In fact, since it is easy to trace all such transactions, startups are already thinking of providing more innovations to make both online casinos and cryptocurrencies even more functional for the benefit of players.

  • Faster Payouts
  • Cryptocurrency withdrawals and deposits into and from gaming accounts are instant. Because of this, players now prefer Bitcoin casinos since they can enjoy many real money online casino games, win, and get their hands on the prize money a lot faster than is normal.

  • Using cryptocurrencies minimize cases of fraud
  • Fraud is not new to online casinos. In fact, most sites have invested in the latest encryption technology, just to keep cybercriminals, phishing and con artists at bay. However, all these aren’t necessary on cryptocurrency casinos since the blockchain technology upon which these currencies are built has innate security features that halt theft.

    The world out there has an entire ocean of prospective cryptocurrency gamblers. The only thing keeping them away now is probably because they still have insufficient information about digital currencies. As soon as they learn how these currencies work then the online gambling scene will see a lot more players signing up.

    Big Plays in the Online Gambling Space 5861

    Before COVID-19 transformed the world, many sectors were already moving toward digital adoption and adaption; the global pandemic has hastened that transition in many ways. The world revolves around smartphones, laptops, computer and digital devices as almost anything can be done online—from seeing a doctor to attending school. Even as hope for the pandemic ending surges, the trend to live life online is likely here to stay. The founders of Lottery.com (Profile), which recently entered a definitive merger agreement with Trident Acquisitions Corp. (NASDAQ: TDAC) to become a publicly listed company, recognized the shifting trend years ago and were pioneers in addressing the untapped online global lottery market. The company has found a way to combine blockchain with other cutting-edge technology to provide at-home lottery participation, with the end goal of being a leader in the huge lottery and sports betting markets. Now the company is timing its entrance into another hot public market: investor appetite for special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs. The gambling space could see unprecedented growth as the pandemic eases and the economy recovers. Some of the big players in the space have online options and are looking to benefit from all things digital. Boyd Gaming Corporation (NYSE: BYD) offers B Connected Online, a robust, attractive online player community. Caesars Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) has Caesars Casino & Sportsbook where users can participate in world-class casino games and wager on sports. Wynn Resorts Limited’s (NASDAQ: WYNN) WynnBET is a premier casino and sports betting app that was just awarded an online sports betting permit in Virginia, and Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NASDAQ: LVS) is reportedly eyeing online betting opportunities.

    • Valued at $398 billion, the global lottery market tops out at more than the SaaS, video games and film industries combined.
    • Lottery.com has announced a definitive agreement to become a public company through a business combination with Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (SPAC) Trident Acquisitions Corp.
    • The company has created a suite of high-margin lottery products, with operations in 12 U.S. states and plans for expansion.  
    • Future gross revenue forecasts estimate $71 million in 2021, $279 million in 2022 and $571 million in 2023.

    Mind-Boggling Numbers

    Multibillion-dollar markets are compelling opportunities, and that is certainly true of the $138 billion global video games or $158 billion Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sectors. However, even more attractive is the $398 billion global lottery market — larger than the global video games and SaaS markets combined. Even more mind boggling are the projections that the global lottery market will reach $625 billion by 2025.

    Despite the numbers, the opportunity is often unrecognized as long-held patterns of buying lottery tickets at a retail point of sale may seem hard to change. With less than 3% of global lottery sales made online, the challenge is evident, but the potential is vast: that’s only an estimated $12 billion market penetration into a nearly $400 billion industry. With an increase in online activity seemingly inevitable, the possibilities of growth and return seem appear significant.
