As the NFT (Non-fungible tokens) craze skyrockets, Atari has set their sights on diving into the world of crypto gambling. They have decided to develop their own online casino in partnership with Decentral Games. This casino will run with the use of Ethereum blockchain technology and it sounds like we’re in for a real treat with this new venture!
The online gambling industry continues to grow as global lockdowns force players to this alternative. This has led to major developments in the crypto gambling industry, as we can clearly see from these two titanic developers. With new online crypto casinos popping out from every corner of the web, this one has certainly caught our attention.
Reviving the Atari Brand
Atari has been looking for ways to restore its former title of being one of the biggest game developers in the industry. This renowned developer was founded in 1972 and has been entertaining video game enthusiasts ever since. Many of us are familiar with the blockbuster games released by Atari in earlier years such as Pac Man, Space Invaders, Asteroids, and Pong. We can imagine that this legendary developer will find innovative ways to incorporate this identity into their new crypto casino.
“Look forward to Atari-themed games, where nostalgia-inducing games are brought back with a twist. There will be games of luck, and games combining skill and luck. There will also be an ‘Atari special’ game where you can win by skill instead of pure luck. With all these new games, we anticipate more new players to join our community very soon!” from Decentral’s blog post.
The Atari Token
This exciting new platform will be making use of the newly-developed Atari token (ATRI) for players to use as a wagering currency. Players will also have the option to place bets using the DAI and MANA cryptos.
The new Atari token is a cryptocurrency that was created with the specific idea that it would be used as a token for the interactive entertainment industry. They have also been developing skill-based games where players use these tokens to wager bets against each for the best player to win the pot.
It seems Atari will be taking things one step further. As most online casino games require little skill and mostly luck, Atari is said to be developing totally skill-based games for the casino as well. Imagine a Pac Man slot where you’re chomping at bitcoins… We don’t know if this is the case, but the news of this development is very exciting.
Atari Casino Launching Soon!
Atari and Decentral Games are looking to launch their new casino in early May this year. They have stated that the casino will be launched with product giveaways and exclusive NFTs as prizes. There will also be a live performance from DJ Dillon Francis! The Atari casino will be featured in the Casino Quarter of Vegas City, Decentraland.
“We have reached an agreement with Atari where 88% of profits from Atari Casino goes to dgTreasury. With more funds for the dgTreasury, we can keep developing exciting new features and share more rewards with our community.” in a statement released by Decentral Games
We are looking forward to the new developments in online crypto gambling by Decentral games. They are certainly thinking out of the box in this new partnership with Atari. We are always very excited when industry leaders and big companies explore new avenues in blockchain technology. Thanks for believing, Atari. And we’re excited to have you join us, finally!
