The online gambling venue News and Score have enabled bitcoin bets which will allow customers to bet bitcoin, win bitcoin and do so without dealing with fiat currencies.
This expansion also means customers that wish to bet with bitcoin will not need to register an account or leave any personal information with the website. Bets are accepted 15 minutes prior to the beginning of an event and automatically transferred to the sending address if the player wins.
While bets can be placed across a variety of sports such as football, motorsport, tennis, hockey, and basketball, bitcoin bets are not available yet for every wager on the website.
While this new feature is an exciting addition to the website, News and Score have mistakenly claimed that they are the first venue to do this. BitBet.us have offered punters the ability to bet bitcoin without the need for personal details, an email address or account for some time prior to News and Score's announcement.
