SkillOnNet To Accept Bitcoin Payments
After an exciting few months that saw SkillOnNet, the software provider behind some of Europe’s biggest online casino brands, add games from both Play N Go and Yggdrasil to their already expansive portfolio, the brand has just made another announcement that may well change the face of gaming even further. SkillOnNet has now added Bitcoin to its payment gateway, and will accept the cryptocurrency for both deposits and withdrawals. SkillOnNet’s cutting-edge platform is offered as a white label, turnkey solution to online casinos, and features more than 800 slots and table games from developers such as Microgaming, NetEnt and Merkur Gaming. The MGA and the Great Britain Gambling Commission license both the supplier and its products, and the brand is renowned for its exceptional offerings and state of the art service. Casinos such as SlotsMagic, PlayOJO, PlayMillion, QueenVegas and LuckyNiki that run on software provided by SkillOnNet will now facilitate Bitcoin transactions, and these brands and others that make use of the SkillOnNet platform are sure to attract an even larger customer base thanks to this new addition.
An Innovative Step Forward
There has been a heavy focus on online casinos and the acceptance of Bitcoin recently, especially after the first Bitcoin casino license was issued by Curacao, and the MGA has been considering following suit. Accepting Bitcoin is a bold step forward for SkillOnNet, but it is one that will surely pay dividends, both short and long-term. SkillOnNet’s Bitcoin gateway will be powered by Cubits, and the option to use this cryptocurrency adds to the supplier’s already extensive list of payment providers. Casinos that make use of SkillOnNet’s software currently accept zimplr, PayPal, Trustly, Neteller, Skrill and MasterCard, long with several other options, but this is the first time a cryptocurrency has been added. While Bitcoin will be the only cryptocurrency accepted presently, SkillOnNet has indicated that they will add others in the coming months.
SkillOnNet Comments On New Addition
SkillOnNet spokesperson, Michael Golembo has said that the decision to accept Bitcoin came down to the rise in the popularity of the cryptocurrency, and that they believe in the future, the use of cryptocurrency will become even more widespread. The software provider is confident that Bitcoin will be a huge hit with online casino players, and that’s why they wanted to start accepting it now. Golembo added that they have already had an impressive number of players deposit and withdraw Bitcoin and that should the trend continue, other cryptocurrencies would be added to the payment gateway. The brand feels that cryptocurrency is the way the online payment industry is going, and they wanted to be ahead of the curve. Something that it seems they have managed to achieve so far.
