Atari to launch crypto casino as global lockdown continues

Gaming giant Atari has plans to tap into the millions of people currently in isolation at home with a new cryptocurrency-based casino.

The classic video game maker is making a big splash into the already crowded virtual gambling arena as more people remained confined to their homes.

It will have a lot of competition since gambling is one of the most popular blockchain-based gaming dApp categories at the moment according to Dappradar.

The New York-headquartered company claims to offer “the best online casino experience to date,” touting benefits such as:

  • borderless gambling with no local restrictions
  • faster payouts due to crypto advantages over banks
  • bigger limits by not using fiat.

Gamblers can already load up on Atari tokens in preparation for the launch, where they will get access to some of the classics casino games such as blackjack and roulette, as well as live tables and unique slot machines.

Players can also wager in games of skill rather than chance in Atari Special, though no further details on the games were available.

The casino website is already up and running and is open to registrations, but an official launch date has yet to be confirmed.

Accepted crypto assets include the firm’s own token, in addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum. Credit cards and PayPal can also be used to make deposits.
