NEWS opens its decentralized slots

The platform is out of beta and has launched its first game on the MainNet. The slots game is only playable from selected, licensed jurisdictions though: players from Indonesia, Thailand, Argentina or South Africa (among others) are welcome, but trying to access the app from the US or from Europe will lead to an error page (Error 1020).

Founded in 2017 and headquartered in Las Vegas, with offices in Panama, the UK, and Australia, is an oddity in the crypto-gambling sphere. First, the company has chosen the VeChain blockchain to build its decentralized apps, instead of the widely popular Ethereum or the growing EOS/Tron ecosystems. The project also relies on its own token (DBET), mandatory to play its first game. But the ultimate goal of the company is worth noticing: ”an open-source peer-to-peer blockchain gaming platform where anyone with an idea can build a game, a predictive market, or a casino room and share in the revenue.”

In October, organized in Las Vegas ”the first poker tournament where all of the buy-ins and payouts were done in Bitcoin.” The charity tournament sold out and attracted 81 players, including Phil Hellmuth, Brock Pierce, and Charlie Lee.
