As the year began drawing to a close, a number of blogs started reporting on the ‘dismal’ year of bitcoin poker. The data we have from our players has shown something quite the opposite, and while many poker rooms such as BitnPlay and BurnTurn have gone offline, the reality is that 2015 was the year of consolidation. As with all new and fast-growth markets, there is a lot of change over very small periods of time. While smaller rooms are down and out, the larger rooms, such as Betcoin, have shown enormous growth on an international level.

Not only that, but search volumes for bitcoin poker and bitcoin gambling have held steady this year (see Google Trends below). This sharp growth and then steady retention is an exciting signal for both players and sites – it shows a maturing market.

As a result, we have launched a comprehensive sister website that offers players an entire overview of the bitcoin gambling space. From sportsbooks to poker rooms and live casinos, our new website BigcoinGambling.com offers not only in-depth reviews but exclusive bonuses and more. The purpose of this new website is to further help establish the bitcoin gambling space and to provide a trusted and reliable source of information for players looking to bet with bitcoin.

As with all new projects, we’re also looking to hire roles in the form of content writers. If you have an interest in this area, please get in touch via the navigation.
