There was a little bit of a marital quarrelling going on lately between Vera and John in their Maltese based Netent online casino gaming establishment… Apparently Vera said “Yes!” and John said “”No!!!”. Of course the
upper-hand won (being the “better” of the “half”, Vera) so from now on we can also play the exciting Netent casino games at Vera and John with casino account funds financed by Bitcoins!
For those who don’t know what “Bitcoins” are… It’s a “P-to-P” currency used to make financial transactions possible from one person to the other by internet. As such, Bitcoins can be compared with a pre-paid card or voucher, as also Bitcoins need to be purchased with normal cash. However, the big advantage is that during Bitcoins transactions there’s no interference from third, fees charging, parties such as banks or (online) payment providing services. And as these institutional “middle men” are cut out, the Bitcoins transactions are potentially much cheaper. The popularity of Bitcoins has grown to such extend the last few years that at one point their value had increased by 3000% since their apparition in 2008.
Of course there wasn’t any real altercation between Vera and John lately: the in the introduction depicted scene is merely the fruit of the imagination of yours truly. The real reason the Netent Casino has started to accept Bitcoin payments is of course the still growing popularity of the currency, partly due to the lower transaction costs and the instant nature of a Bitcoin deposit (there’s virtually no delay.
Furthermore, as a spokesman of Vera and John commented, the casino highly values innovative developments and therefore is “very proud to be the first regulated and licensed online casino to offer Bitcoin to (..) customers”.
Due to the advantages of the use of Bitcoins to effectuate financial transactions in an online casino it’s likely more Netent Casinos in the future will follow the example of Vera and John. And if you’re into Netent casino games and are the proud owner of a Bitcoin wallet loaded with the new currency you now know where to go and have your online gaming fun.
