A new bitcoin casino has launched in the last while called King Billy Casino, and this Look At gives a rundown of how the casino works as a player.
Based on the Softswiss platform, King Billy Casino features a wide variety of slots, jackpots, table games, as well as an extensive range of live casino games from all the top casino game providers including Ainsworth, Amatic, Bgaming, Booming, Bsg, Elk, Endorphina, Evolution, Ezugi, Gameart, Habanero, Isoftbet, Netent, Nextgen, Playngo, Pragmatic, Quickfire, Spinomenal, Thunderkick, Vivogaming and Yggdrasil.
So to start, I registered an account, and made a deposit using their bitcoin payment provider. Within a minute or two, this was on my account and ready to play even though it hadn’t confirmed on the blockchain. This was matched by a first time deposit bonus automatically, doubling my deposit.
I started to play some of the slot games on the site, including 3 Charms Crush, Ancient Egypt Classic, a multi-line slot game, Good Girl Bad Girl, another multi-line slot game, and then Lucky Lady Slots, which is a jackpot slot game.
While doing this, I ran into a small error, and after contacting support who responded within seconds, they let me know that there was a limit on the bet size of 2.5mbtc (as this is the denomination of the bitcoin casinos use) while I had my deposit bonus in place.
King Billy has a sequential deposit bonus. The first is a 100% deposit bonus up to 1 bitcoin, as well as up to 200 free spins on a limited number of slots, which are given 20/day for 10 days. The second bonus, using WELCOME2 gives a 50% bonus up to 1 bitcoin, the third using WELCOME3 gives a 25% bonus up to 1.5 bitcoin, and the fourth and final bonus gives 25% bonus again up to 1.5 bitcoin. There is a minimum deposit of 10mbtc (0.01 bitcoin), and bonus winnings must be wagered 35 times to be eligible for withdrawal.
Also, some of the games were restricted to me as I had deposited in crypto, as the casino also supports euro, but there was still an extensive range of games I could play.
Before playing some of the games, I was prompted to fill in some of the information in my profile, such as name, date of birth and so on, and after entering this I could continue playing the games I wanted. While I was in the settings screen, I also had a look at the responsible gaming options, and it has a wide range of options to let you set deposit limits, loss limits, ager limits, session limits, as well as putting in a cooling off period. This is good to see, and in line with the modern approach taken by GambleAware.ie and other similar controls.
While the site features a range of computer based card and table games including blackjack, video poker and roulette, I dived into the live casino for an hour or two. There was an easy filter to narrow down the live games that were available to me with the betting limit I had, so I tried a number of them.
I tried the Casino Holdem first, which had a friendly dealer who was broadcast in high definition and with clear audio, chatting away to people on the table. After that, I tried a couple of variants of blackjack, my favourite card game. I tried Classic Blackjack, and also a variant called Live Blackjack Party. They also have a live spinwheel game called Dream Catcher where the presenter spins the wheel and depending on where it stops you can win between 1x and 40x your bet.
However, the game I settled on and played the most, having a couple of dozen hands was Infinite Blackjack, which at any given time had at least another 40 people playing.
In order to increase the bet size over the 2.5mbtc limit, I logged back into my account and forfeited my initial deposit bonus. This dropped my balance down, but enabled me to browse a wider range of games, and increase my stakes in Infinite Blackjack.
I played this over two days, winning some, losing others, and after my play session I thought I’d try to withdraw the balance of my funds, going into the withdrawal, putting in my bitcoin address and submitting it. However, very shortly thereafter it was declined, and I contacted support who said that I’d need to upload a copy of my photo ID in order to process a withdrawal. This was straightforward to do, and after this I was able to withdraw my funds back to my account. While I didn’t top up by e-cash (which would require uploading copies of the receipts), or by debit card (which would require uploading a photo of the card with some numbers blocked) as well as id, this step is part of their compliance program.
So overall, what was my experience on King Billy Casino like? It’s been a while since I’ve used a softswiss betting site, and the platform has gotten multiple upgrades since I played last. King Billy Casino’s design is nice, with a royal theme. There is a wide selection of games from lots of different providers.
The graphics of the games was nice, the controls were easy and responsive, and the audio for the games that had it was nice and crisp.
I was particularly impressed with the live casino, given that there was an extensive range of games, many of the tables had lots of people on them, and chat was hopping although in a lot of different languages which I didn’t mind. The hosts and hostesses were also friendly, chatting away to the audience of players.
So overall, if you’re looking to try a new bitcoin or euro casino that has a good range of slots, table and card games, as well as an extensive range of live casino games, King Billy Casino is well worth a go.
SafeEarth Donates $100,000 to TheOceanCleanUp Kicking Off Blockchain Eco Project
Bitcoin Press Release: Blockchain eco project SafeEarth has donated over $100,000 to TheOceanCleanUp charity with more donations planned for other global charities.
16th April, 2021, London, UK — SafeEarth, a blockchain eco project, has donated over $100,000 to community selected charity TheOceanCleanUp. The donated funds will help towards the removal of plastic waste from the planet. This generous donation represents the first act of SafeEarth’s continuing initiative to help charities across the globe.
The money was raised from SAFEEARTH token transaction fees. From each token transaction a portion of the fees will continue to be used for further donations to charities that focus on green initiatives as SafeEarth looks to effect a lasting and positive change on the planet.
The Ocean Cleanup Head of IT Steven Bink offered his thanks to Safe Earth on Twitter, stating:
“Dear SafeEarth community. On behalf of the entire crew at The Ocean Cleanup, I would like to thank you for this very generous donation. We are also honored that you chose The Ocean Cleanup to be the first charity to receive this gift from @SafeEarthETH”
Safe Earth & Earth Fund
Deforestation, pollution, global warming and many other factors have had an adverse effect on the environment for decades. As the world shifts more towards renewables and eco-friendly alternatives, initiatives like that of Safe Earth represent a changing mentality in industry
SafeEarth’s sole focus is to generate capital and build a community which is able to repair the ecological damage done to the planet. Safe Earth also collaborates with another green charity called The Earth Fund, which has raised around 50 ETH ($125,000 at the time of writing) to be used for similar causes.
As a part of their plan to raise awareness for ecological causes SafeEarth have also started a #PlasticChallenge on twitter, which urges people to get rid of plastic waste. The challenge (which launched on 27th of March) rewards users from a prize pool of $3,600 in SAFEEARTH tokens.
In the short time since the challenge began the SAFEEARTH token has been listed on the number one DEX Uniswap, recorded $3 million in trading volume and locked away more than $1.5 million in liquidity.
SAFEEARTH Token Burn & Benefits
The SAFEEARTH token is a deflationary asset that uses an autonomous yield and liquidity generation protocol. Each transaction charges a total of 4% in fees, which is then broken up evenly with 1% going to charities, 1% refunded to holders, 1% for advertising and 1% token lock-ups to increase liquidity. By burning at least 50% of the total supply after launch, (which will go to a black hole address) SafeEarth ensures increased token scarcity and liquidity.
$SAFEMARS is the sister token to SafeEarth and available on PancakeSwap exchange. The token uses very similar tokenomics to SAFEEARTH and over 50% of the tokens have already been burned. As none of the transaction fees from SafeMars go towards charity the company has chosen to give more back to users, with a total of 2% going instantly back to the holders wallets and the other 2% is auto-locked to increase scarcity and liquidity. Right now the number of $SAFEMARS holders is growing steadily with 93,699 holders at the time of writing.
Save Earth Through Safe Earth
Harnessing blockchain technology through it’s unique protocol in the interest of both charitable giving and community incentives is helping SafeEarth to stand out from its competition. This $100,000 donation is just the beginning of the company’s mission to effect a lasting and positive change to the planet.
SafeEarth blockchain eco project is already gearing up for another large donation with another 35 ETH (roughly $87,600) reserved for 5 charities that focus on humanitarian causes, such as access to clean water and wildlife preservation. The charities will be chosen by the SafeEarth community and will be announced on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2021.

Did Elon Musk’s ‘jet fuel’ set GameStop (and Bitcoin) ablaze?
Depending on where you stand on the GameStop saga, which saw organized retail traders extract $6 billion from Wall Street overnight, you may think someone should either take the matches away from Elon Musk, or give him more.
The CEO and “Technoking” of Tesla was accused of pouring “jet fuel” on the GameStop short-squeeze at a critical moment by hedge fund manager David Einhorn, founder of Greenlight Capital, in a letter to investors published Thursday.
Einhorn said Elon Musk and venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya were the real instigators behind the short-squeeze, claiming both had supplied “the real jet fuel” for the pump with their tweets and TV appearances.
“We note that the real jet fuel on the GME squeeze came from Chamath Palihapitiya and Elon Musk, whose appearances on TV and Twitter, respectively, at a critical moment further destabilized the situation,” wrote Einhorn, according to Markets Insider.
Amid the orchestrated short-squeeze on GameStop by redditors on r/WallStreetBets, Elon Musk tweeted what some interpreted as his support for the endeavor. On Jan. 26, shortly after GME stock was pumped 91% in a single day, Musk tweeted the phrase “Gamestonk!!” accompanied by a link to the WallStreetBets sub-reddit.
Over the course of the next 24 hours, GME stock soared 134%, climbing from a unit price of $147 to $347. The following 24 hours brought even more fireworks, and by Jan. 28, the value of GameStop shares had hit an all time high of $483 — an 18,693% increase on the stock’s value just nine months earlier.
Chamath Palihapitiya appeared to voice his support for the short-squeeze on Jan. 27, when he told interviewers on CNBC that the GameStop saga was an example of the man on the street pushing back against the man on Wall Street.
Einhorn said that “quasi-anarchy” now reigns, based on what he sees as toothless regulation of the stock market. Einhorn compared the situation, where “the laws don’t apply to [Elon Musk]” to the defunding of the police force.
“Many who would never support defunding the police have supported — and for all intents and purposes have succeeded — in almost completely defanging, if not defunding, the regulators,” said Einhorn.
Previously Elon Musk was suggested to have unduly influenced the cryptocurrency market with his vocal support of Bitcoin (BTC) and Dogecoin (DOGE) via Twitter. Legal professionals suggested in February that Musk’s tweets may have acted as a catalyst for the coins’ gains at the time, and warned that such tweets could attract SEC attention.
Musk laughed off the suggestion at the time, claiming that he would welcome any SEC investigation into his tweets, and that he simply liked “dogs and memes.”
Turkey to ban cryptocurrency payments
A new ban in Turkey will prohibit crypto holders from using their digital assets for payments, in addition to preventing payment providers from adding funds to their digital wallets at crypto exchanges.
According to a Friday announcement by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, the ban will come into effect on April 30, rendering any crypto payments solutions and partnerships illegal.
The bank stated, “any direct or indirect usage of crypto assets in payment services and electronic money issuance” will be forbidden.
While banks are excluded from the regulation, which means users can still deposit Turkish lira on crypto exchanges using wire transfers from their bank accounts, payment providers will be unable to provide deposit or withdrawal services for crypto exchanges.
Payment providers and digital wallets are widely used in Turkey to transfer fiat funds to crypto exchanges and vice versa. Major global exchange Binance partnered with local payment provider Papara when they first entered the Turkish market to provide a lira onramp for several different cryptocurrencies.
This new regulation means that users have two weeks to clear their balances if they exclusively use payment providers as fiat-to-crypto gateways.
Historically, the Turkish government has always had a tight grip on the payment ecosystem. In 2016, Turkey banned major global payment provider PayPal in the country.
Crypto regulation is a hot topic for Turkey in recent months. Last month, the Turkish Ministry of Treasury and Finance announced that they are monitoring the crypto ecosystem and working with the Central Bank, Banking Regulation and Supervision Agency, and Capital Markets Board to regulate crypto.
