It has been announced that Evil Geniuses (EG) has entered into a partnership with Bitcasino, a Bitcoin-focused casino operator.
Bitcasino is the first company to partner with EA Sports in esports, according to a press release. Starting with the Blast Premier Fall Showdown, players’ jerseys with the Bitcasino logo on the sleeve will be available for purchase.
Incorporated into the Yolo Group is Bitcasino, a cryptocurrency-based digital gaming platform that offers more than 2,800 games, including traditional casino games like slots and roulette as well as poker and baccarat.
