Inside the wild world of crypto casinos
Sky’s Sanya Burgess delves into the controversial world of crypto casinos – where beneath the neon lights and high stakes celebrations, lies a web of secrets.
Crypto casinos are similar to ‘normal’ online casinos, offering virtual versions of popular games like slot machines. The difference is that they use digital currencies: Players convert pounds, euros and dollars into virtual cash such as bitcoin to gamble with.
Her investigation uncovers some troubling practices in this online community; such as how some influencers may be playing with ‘fake’ money provided by casino sponsors, while others could be breaking British law by promoting and showing how to access these sites, which are illegal in this country.
She speaks to streamer HasanAbi, who turned down a gambling contract, about this world – in which other streamers such as xQc and Trainwreck, have millions of followers who watch them gamble online.
