SoftSwiss presented its innovative Bitcoin Casino Solution at the global gaming exhibition ICE Totally Gaming 2014. It was highly praised by professionals including operators, investors and other guests of the exhibition. Bitcoin payment processing system integrated into SoftSwiss casino software was recognized as a unique market offer among 503 exhibiting companies represented on ICE.
ICE Totally Gaming can without exaggeration be considered the largest and the most famous international gaming exhibition in the world. People from the entire gaming and gambling industry are coming to this annual event to see new technologies emerging, meet the leading operators, manufacturers, investors and regulators. ICE brings all of them together and gives a chance to meet face-to-face with perspective clients, partners and investors, as well as see all new products coming onto the market. Almost 24,000 people from all over the world gathered on ICE which set a new record of attendance this year.
SoftSwiss actively promotes adoption of Bitcoin in iGaming and for this reason we decided to become the Headline Sponsor of the ICE Bitcoin Seminar. The pressing topic of the seminar definitely attracted attention of the audience and gathered more visitors than organizers could accommodate. Speakers covered all the main aspects of Bitcoin trends touching upon payment processing applications, Provably Fair Technology, jurisdictions, and various business aspects in iGaming industry.
“Using Bitcoin currency allows operators to bring the transparency of gaming to a new level”, stated Ivan Montik, CEO and Founder of SoftSwiss, speaking as an expert at ICE Bitcoin seminar. “This technology makes payment process 100% secure, allows saving on fees charged by third-party payment providers and gives full control over finances. It also eliminates the chargeback issue present in the real money gaming. Players add money to their account and gamble on the operator’s website. Then they claim their accounts have been hacked which results in refunds and penalties for the operator. Such cases are technically impossible with Bitcoin”.
Betsoft Gaming, one of the iGaming market leaders, suggested integrating their Bitcoin games into SoftSwiss Casino platform. SafeCharge payment solution provider also offered mutually beneficial cooperation which will simplify payment processing and allow SoftSwiss clients having a single merchant account for all casino-related financial transactions.
Another pleasant surprise was to meet our client Betcoin.tm. After the successful launch of their website in summer 2013, they started an aggressive marketing campaign and came to ICE to promote their online casino.
It was the second year in a row when SoftSwiss participated at ICE Totally Gaming and there is no doubt that innovative ideas promoted by our company become successful. The interest in our Bitcoin payment processing system was so high that our team considers offering at as a separate solution:
“At this stage, Bitcoin payment system is only available as part of our Bitcoin Casino Solution which means that it goes in the package with our casino platform and games. However, since there were a lot of inquiries about it on ICE, we are now evaluating the possibility of offering this functionality as a separate solution which can be integrated in any third party system”.
SoftSwiss team is constantly enhancing our products and looking for innovation. ICE inspires us to be on cutting edge and create new technologically enhanced trends. The gaming industry leads the world in terms of innovation so let us reserve a couple of days next year to see new achievements at ICE Total Gaming 2015.
