While blackjack is a complex game to master, the way it is played has always been very simple. In the earliest days, players at a blackjack table had only two real choices—hit or stand. All that was required was a simple tap or scratch of one finger to let the dealer know which choice you were making. Now, CoinGaming.io is returning to blackjack’s simple roots by partnering with developers OneTouch to introduce an electronic version of the game that can be played with just one finger.
CoinGaming.io is the world’s largest Bitcoin-powered betting platform. Betting with Bitcoin has become highly popular because the digital currency affords a small measure of anonymity when managed properly. Bitcoin gambling especially lends itself to gambling on mobile devices and operating systems like Android and iOS. Society in general is becoming more and more geared toward the use of smartphones and tablets to access the Internet, play games, and bet with a Bitcoin casino. When creating online casino software for mobile casinos, companies are always looking for a way to increase the simplicity of their interfaces and gaming engines. OneTouch has taken this to new heights by making it possible to play blackjack with a single finger.
The game engine is friendly to both left-handed and right-handed operators. It will first be offered on two Bitcoin betting sites, BitCasino.io and Sportsbet.io. From there, the game could eventually make its way to online casinos that deal in standard currencies. OneTouch used the most recent graphics technology to make the game visually attractive, and it is also compatible with Provably Fair algorithms that ensure the integrity of the game, something that mobile bettors tend to be more concerned about than those who use their home computers to bet. Players can customize the look and feel of the game by choosing colors for their tables and a preferred style.
In a recent interview with Gaming News, Tim Heath addressed the implementation of the new game. Heath, the CEO of CoinGaming.io, said “The market for on-the-go and mobile betting is booming, so we’re delighted to have partnered with OneTouch for their hugely exciting blackjack product.”
Heath is correct. Some have predicted mobile betting revenues in excess of $100 billion by 2017. So far, the predictions seem to be bearing out. Many reasons have been suggested for the increase in mobile betting. These include convenience. Players can make a bet or play a game with their device from anywhere they have a data connection. Some types of betting, such as horseracing wagering, especially benefit from mobile technology. A player with a mobile device and a wagering account can literally become their own betting window at the track. They don’t even have to leave their seat in the grandstand to make a bet. Similarly, blackjack players that do not live near a physical casino can play anywhere at any time with a mobile casino app.
At Counting Edge we believe the biggest reason, however, may simply be the current trend of society. Mobile platforms are becoming the most preferred method of Internet access. The busy lives of individuals create more opportunities to accomplish tasks with a mobile device and a fondness for using them. It is only natural that this fondness extends to leisure activities and games as well.
