How One Crypto Player’s Winnings have Reached $275k at CryptoSlots in Two Years 18959

CryptoSlots

Ever wonder if players really do get lucky from crypto casinos? Maybe not all, but we found one CryptoSlots casino player whose winnings have added up to a substantial $275k in wins in just two years of playing ($276,200 to be exact). David C is from California, and wisely started investing in Bitcoin in 2016 – in 2018 he decided to play at Bitcoin casinos with some of his savings, and the rest is history. Read our interview with him below.

Do you have a strategy?
I only put in what I got out of crypto investing, I don’t play for hours on end – you have to be smart. I won a few thousand on the Jackpot game early on, got a huge win on Olympus High Limit version at one point. With bigger wins I like that I always set the money aside. Quit when you’re ahead.

But a lot of it as learning how the games work. I count the medium wins rather than hold out for bigger ones. And, at CryptoSlots, save up Jackpot Tokens and then play Jackpot Trigger for longer all in one go.

Have you always played online? 
I’ve played slots online a lot before – only been to two actual casinos in my life to be honest with you. You have more control over what you’re doing when you’re online.

What do you like about playing with Bitcoin?
When playing at btc casinos, I don’t have to get my bank involved or wait for payments to come through – I know exactly where my money is at all times.

Last but not least, what do you spend your winnings on?
Well some of it goes back into playing, some I keep in crypto, some I spend. Last year we did a trip around Asia. We went jungle trekking in Malaysia, I got my diving certificate in Indonesia, stayed a few days in Singapore. It was out of this world, such a vacation. We were planning on heading to Norway this winter to see the Northern Lights but, unfortunately, that will have to wait thanks to this coronavirus.

When asked about his favorites among Cryptoslots’ Provably Fair casino games, David said he largely alternates between the slots to diversify his crypto bets. So we took a look at his top ten games over the last six months and analyzed his payback ratio on each:

tabe

Interestingly, the High Limit games seem at a glance to be most volatile – offering the lowest payback ratio (Vegas Vibes High Limit at 72.5%) and the highest (Blazing Wilds High Limit at 179.1%). His standard video slot play produced more reliable wins but less chance of huge paybacks (e.g. Coin Rush at 105.8% and Vegas Twin at 99%).

Of course, it all depends on how much is bet and for how long the game is played. David bet the least on both Jacks or Better and Pyramid Plunder High Limit – maybe his inclinations warned him that luck was lurking elsewhere, maybe he quit too soon and longer gameplay would have increased his payback ratio! A significant win can make the world of difference.

We always ask our players if they believe in luck, and just like David, most of them tell us it depends on the day. For now, it seems his strategies are literally paying off.

NexChange Group and Marita Group Co-Host Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit to Showcase Continent’s Technological Leapfrog 8932

Rahhal Boulgoute, Chairman of Marita Group: “Blockchain will revolutionize Africa and provide opportunities for financial inclusion. It is important that we expose blockchain technology in Africa.”

The impact is seen on Africa’s financial map.

Banks, enterprises, and entrepreneurs are changing the continent’s destiny, shaping the investment landscape.

This event backs the efforts of the African regulators to adopt the required regulations to embrace blockchain and become a main global player in the technologies shaping the future. The ambition of the Co-hosts is to make Africa Blockchain Week the key platform for dialogue and networking between all stakeholders in blockchain to transform it into a reality in Africa.

Proceeds will be used to support development of WAVE BL’s business and further implementation of its pioneering technology supporting paperless trade in the shipping industry, as well as in other sectors.

ZIM President and CEO Eli Glickman: “Our early adoption of WAVE BL’s blockchain based platform to promote paperless trade highlights our leadership in utilizing digital strategies to best serve customers and has proven extremely successful for ZIM and for changing the industry.

Max Dilendorf Serves as a Bitcoin Expert Witness in USCIS EB-5 Green Card Adjudication Proceedings 9869

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has frequently denied EB-5 applications that list Bitcoin exchange-traded-funds as a legitimate “source of funds”. Yet, in an unprecedented approach that included forensic reporting analysis, attorney Max Dilendorf provided an expert legal opinion and due diligence report proving that a green card applicants’ source of funds met the standards to be qualified under this program.

Because USCIS only requires a “preponderance of evidence” showing the legal acquisition of investment funds in EB-5 petitions and offers little guidance for applicants whose funds originated in cryptocurrency, Dilendorf’s confirming evidence was a significant achievement.

The Dilendorf Law Firm, NYC’s top law firm for the digital age, represented several clients in EB-5 matters with the USCIS concerning the clients’ EB-5 investments funded with cryptocurrencies. By submitting blockchain and cryptocurrency expert reports in these cases, the firm has provided evidence to support the legitimate “source of funds”.

The firm’s clients were software engineers and early cryptocurrency adopters who, in the opinion of the crypto compliance law firm, are legally qualified for obtaining EB-5 investor green-cards, as there was little doubt on the legality of the source of the clients’ cryptocurrency funds.

Dilendorf’s legal opinions and blockchain forensic reports, as submitted to the USCIS, included an expert assessment of the following:

  • legality of the specific digital assets and regulatory framework for the involved financial institutions dealing with cryptocurrencies;
  • origin and flow of cryptocurrencies funding the EB-5 investments;
  • mechanism and sufficiency of digital wallets, private cryptographic keys, crypto trading platforms and accounts establishing ownership of the clients’ cryptocurrency funds;
  • KYC/AML compliance measures taken at each point of the funds’ journey by clients and third parties, including crypto exchanges and OTC traders.

Max Dilendorf, Esq. is also a top forensic Bitcoin and crypto expert witness. His expertise has also made him one of the top cryptocurrency consultants for Fortune 500 companies.  Mr. Dilendorf’s recent speaking engagements have included the Thailand SEC, IBM, Berkshire Hathaway, and New York University, to name a few.
