It’s predicted that in the future of online casinos, cryptocurrency will be accepted as a form of payment. As well as its increased usage amongst players, the security surrounding the digital currency has improved, and the payment process has become easier to translate onto the workings of an online casino site. This may completely change the way in which individuals can wager on casino games.
Recently, the pioneering video game firm Atari, alongside Decentral games, have announced plans to launch a cryptocurrency casino. Developed within a virtual world named ‘Vegas City’, the Atari Casino will enable players to create avatars that can interact with different games and other users, as well as wager using Bitcoin – the biggest digital currency on the market.

Casinos on your mobile
Playing casino games on your mobile is nothing new, as there has been virtual access to your favourite games since the invention of the smartphone. But over the years, there’s expected to be a huge rise in mobile casino gaming.. It’s clear to see why, as with the introduction of casino apps and advanced web browsers on your phone, the gaming experience is made quick and easy.
