May The Fork Be With You: Bitcoin Casino Cloudbet Unveils Bitcoin Cash Giveaway

Leading crypto sportsbook and casino Cloudbet becomes first to honour bitcoin fork

Montenegro - April 16, 2018 —

Leading bitcoin sportsbook and casino Cloudbet is offering its users the chance to share a considerable cryptocurrency windfall. Players who held bitcoin in their Cloudbet accounts on August 1st, 2017, at the time of the bitcoin fork, will receive the equivalent in bitcoin cash.

Cloudbet has set a precedent within crypto gaming by releasing funds tied to what is now the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency. The company is the first bitcoin sportsbook and casino in the world (and the Galaxy) to honour the fork, underlining the credibility the platform has built since its 2013 launch in what has become a rapidly growing segment of the gaming industry.

Should they choose to, Cloudbet players will be able to use their windfall to take advantage of some of the best crypto odds and highest limits online, as Cloudbet have simultaneously launched betting with bitcoin cash. The move signals the platforms intention to offer crypto bettors more choice of coins with which to bet.

Mirio Mella, Cloudbet’s Head of Acquisition had these words to say about the platform;

“The creation of derivative bitcoin products in what are termed ‘forks’ has both practical and political implications. Cloudbet is focused on the practical; players want fast, cheap and reliable transactions, and BCH offers a great alternative to BTC. We have no position on the politics but instead are having fun with the Star Wars fork theme and will leave it to others to decide who is the Empire and who are the Freedom Fighting Rebels.”

Cloudbet will use the timestamp of the last common BTC block (block 478558; 1 August 2017, 13:16:14 UTC) to determine customers’ BCH balances; full details on the BCH fork.

WORLD CUP: Salah can rouse Egypt after 28-year wait

Apr 25, 2018

CAIRO — Mohammed Salah has the ability to light up any team, including Egypt. The Liverpool striker has been in superb form this season, but playing at the World Cup will be a new experience for him. Egypt qualified for the tournament for the first time in 28 years, and its chances in Group A against host Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay mainly rest on the 25-year-old Salah's shoulders. In last month's warm-up games, headers proved to be Egypt's undoing. Salah put Egypt in the lead against Portugal, but Cristiano Ronaldo scored two late goals with his head for the...
