CasinoCoin strikes Omnia Casino deal C
asinoCoin, the blockchain for gaming, has agreed a deal with leading operator Omnia Casino to launch a custom token that will power the casino’s new loyalty and rewards programme. Players will earn tokens as part of a new loyalty scheme and will be able to spend them in a dedicated store in exchange for free spins, bonuses or branded items of the operator’s choosing. The token, a digital asset which sits upon the CasinoCoin blockchain, will be fully branded and controlled by Omnia Casino. By leveraging the power of the CasinoCoin blockchain, which facilitates nearly instantaneous transactions at super low
fees, the new Omnia Casino rewards programme will benefit from greater automation, security and engagement. Sam Hobcraft, founder of Omnia Group, said: “Innovation is at the heart of Omnia Casino, so we are delighted to be the first major operator to move its rewards programme onto the blockchain. We selected CasinoCoin to power our new token because its technology is faster, more secure and more scalable than alternatives that we reviewed as part of the selection process. As the blockchain for gaming, and with a team that understands this space, they are the perfect partner and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship.”
Over the past few months, a number of gaming companies have struck deals to launch custom tokens on the CasinoCoin blockchain, including leading roulette manufacturer Cammegh and eGamingFund, a one-stop, licensing and distribution platform for games developers.
