BetVIP.com, the world’s first licensed, bitcoin-only sportsbook, has diversified its offering with the launch of BetVIPpoker.com.
As with the company’s sports, virtual and casino products, BetVIP Poker transacts exclusively in bitcoin and accepts bets around the world in regulated markets.
The new poker room has been developed in response to customer demand for additional bitcoin wagering opportunities and is available in app format for both Mac and Windows.
Once the BetVIP Poker app is downloaded, players can make instant deposits – and withdrawals – and take a seat at one of the online tables, choosing from a wide range of variants, including Texas hold ‘em, Omaha hold ‘em, Omaha hi-lo, seven card stud and seven card stud hi-low.
BetVIP Poker focuses on providing an excellent user experience via a clean interface. The platform hosts daily freerolls and tournaments with timed starts that are convenient for players based in differing time zones.
Announced each week, the freerolls and tournaments cater to all players with prize pools ranging from 100 mBTC (0.1 BTC / £19.26 / €26.75 / $28.39 ) to 1BTC (£193 / €268 / $284).
“The rapid growth of our business over the past year stems from the fact that users want a trusted, licensed bitcoin betting and gaming environment. The launch of BetVIP Poker enables players to enjoy an even wider selection of market-leading cryptocurrency wagering products on both Mac and Windows platforms,” said BetVIP founder and CEO Daniel Schwartzkopff.
BetVIP launched in June 2014 before last year’s soccer World Cup in Brazil and holds a gaming license in Curacao.
“We have seen many users convert to BetVIP from fiat money currency platforms for the numerous benefits bitcoin offers,” added Schwartzkopff. “With low fees and strong identity protection, as well as rapid, simple and safe payments, bitcoin is the future of the igaming industry.”
