Best Bitcoin Casino’s Barry Goldwon: “We Help Consumers Navigate the Crypto Gaming Industry”

In a world where crypto is increasingly popular, Best Bitcoin Casino has built a safe harbor for people who want to leverage the power of cryptocurrencies and use it recreationally.

The brand, which is an affiliate to numerous established crypto gaming groups, is also a comparative service that allows consumers to quickly run through dozens of options that are available to them locally when looking for iGaming solutions.

Just a few weeks back, Best Bitcoin Casino introduced a new design and rating algorithm that the company vowed would bring more value to operators as well as help consumers navigate the crypto gaming industry.

Ultimately, the company is looking to establish a fair rating system that allows operators to compete based on merit. The offer covers everything from casinos to sportsbooks, to esports, to poker, dice, and more.

With over 650 brands listed, Best Bitcoin Casino turns out to be a leader in what it does and the new algorithm allows the company to provide even more accurate breakdowns of what consumers may expect from each brand.

Q: Can you tell us a little more about Best Bitcoin Casino as a project and what led to the decision to establish it?

A: BestBitcoinCasino.com and its network of related sites and brands were founded back in 2013 when we first understood the value of Crypto payments in the iGaming industry. Back then, we could count the number of operators that offered Crypto deposits and allowed Crypto withdrawals on two hands, and most of these were poker rooms. Today it is a different story – we have more than 650+ brands listed on our site.

We were the first to recognize the opportunity and develop products and solutions that would meet and exceed player expectations. We also understood that players seeking Crypto casinos were different from standard online casino players.  While the Crypto market was very new, a year after we establish our network with assets like bestbitcoinslots.com, bitcoincasinoaffiliates.com, and others, we started to see other affiliates adding a “crypto section” to their menus. By this point, we were already live with more than 100 operators, with dedicated games we developed with software providers and with long-term partnerships with payment processors.

We are proud to say that we were the first to recognize the opportunity and execute on it. This is why we are the market leader when it comes to Crypto and Bitcoin gambling.

Q: You have relaunched your site design and rating algorithms at the end of September. Why did you feel the need to overhaul the site?

A: We undertook a small redesign back in 2018 which included launching a selection of tools to help our players learn more about the casinos listed on our site and to find the best brands for them. The latest redesign takes this to the next level and is all about delivering a superior experience to our growing community of players.

Our powerful rating algorithm uses several parameters to rate an operator including bonuses and wagering requirements, direct and proactive player support, licenses held, and more. Above all, we give top priority to player ratings, comments, and feedback to ensure that each casino is accurately reviewed and rated based on the experience that it offers to players.

To coincide with the redesign, we have also rolled out a new rating system – Rated as Best Bitcoin Casino. Those that receive this seal of approval can earn player trust and confidence, connect with our 12,000-strong community faster and enjoy better exposure across the site. The badge is awarded to casinos that meet the following criteria:

  1. Have a 7.0 rating our above
  2. Have a dedicated casino representative
  3. Respond within 72 hours
  4. Use reputable casino game software
  5. Support various payment methods (crypto and FIAT)
  6. Update key details about the brand

Ultimately, want to become a hub for Crypto casino players and be a one-stop-shop for all of their needs.

Q: With 650 crypto brands, you are definitely going strong. Are all of these brands trustworthy or are you creating a compendium that allows consumers to sort through websites individually and decide for themselves what brand may fit their needs?

A: We have more than 650 brands now listed on the site and a further 200 waiting to be added. We have so many brands waiting in the wings because we put each operator through our stringent screening process to make sure they are meeting the highest possible standards. This screening process has been developed and fine-tuned over several years to make sure that every brand on our site delivers an incredible player experience and is also reputable and trustworthy.

Of course, some of these brands stand out from their rivals because they excel across all key areas and that is why we have introduced our Rated as Best Bitcoin Casino system and badge. The casinos awarded this seal are at the top of their game and the badge allows our members to easily identify these brands.

Q: Is there any inherent benefit to picking cryptocurrencies over FIAT money to participate in gaming activities?

A: It really comes down to player choice. Cryptocurrencies are becoming increasingly popular and are close to entering the mainstream so it is obvious that people that hold Crypto will want to use it to purchase items and engage with entertainment activities such as an online casino. There are strong arguments for using Crypto over FIAT currency – faster transactions, increased security, anonymity, etc. – but again it really comes down to player choice and whether they prefer to use Crypto or FIAT. 

Q: How do the main iGaming jurisdictions worldwide respond to cryptocurrency casinos and betting sites, and are they embracing them, or does skepticism persist?

A: Crypto is a global currency but its use in iGaming is dependent on the regulator and license provider in each jurisdiction. We work with operators and platform provides targeting markets around the world but in particular, Asia and Africa are big markets for Crypto gambling. Latin America has traditionally been the strongest Crypto casino market and I believe it will remain so for many years to come.

Q: What does Best Bitcoin Casino want to achieve in the next two years?

A: We have incredible growth plans that include adding more assets to our network. This will allow us to provide more opportunities to operators, software providers, licensing agencies, affiliate programs, payment processors, and more. Like I said previously, we want to be a one-stop-shop for everything related to Crypto and Blockchain online gambling.
