SmartPlay to introduce a blockchain casino game terminal
Some days ago we wrote about the introduction of a poker site, based upon blockchain technology called Virtue Poker, using Ethereum as the official currency for buy-ins and payouts, and today we will introduce you to the new SmartBox, developed by SmartPlay, for Ethereum blockchain betting.
The SmartBox is the world’s first blockchain gambling terminal, which promises unlimited bonuses and ‘provably fair’ gambling. The SmartBox is built in a transparent way, allowing the casino costumers the unique chance of examining the engine to make sure everything works as promised.
This feature will especially be welcomed by players who may have a hard time believing that the 4 consecutive spins on the roulette ended on the same number, or the ones who claim they always miss out of the jackpot in the various slot machine games.
Even though local regulations and laws prohibit the online casinos from integrating software cheating the casino players, this will be interesting news for all online casino enthusiasts and crypto entrepreneurs.
Crypto casino gaming
Satoshi Dice online casino was the first to introduce cryptocurrency in the online casino industry, in form of Bitcoin gambling in 2012, and since their introduction have several other players on the market followed in their footsteps, including Slots.lv, Ignition and BoVegas.
For now, the crypto gambling segment has only been available as an online casino solution, but with the introduction of the SmartBox, it is intended that land-based casinos can also take part in the market.
The plan for SmartPlay is to install SmartBoxes in a broad range of casinos and it has been suggested that the Russian casino costumers might be the first to take use of the innovative solution, since Ethereum, which is the cryptocurrency the SmartBox is developed for, has a large number of Russian investors and followers.
Whether you will be able to find the SmartBox in a land-based European casino, or next to the Vegas slots in Nevada, will first of all depend on the popularity of the SmartBoxes among casino customers and SmartPlay’s skills when it comes to promotion and their explanation on how the product works in practice.
