- Lucky Bitcoin punter scoops $64k playing at BitStarz Casino
- Jackpot, won playing Hansel & Grete: Witch Hunters, is among largest Bitcoin wins
A Bitcoin gambler is celebrating after landing a monster $64k win while playing Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The iSoftBet slot, which features just 10 paylines, has the ability to pay out extremely generous sums, as the BitStarz player found out to their delight.
Bitcoin on the rise
Bitcoin usage has soared this year, aided by a growth in online casinos using the cryptocurrency as their de facto deposit and withdrawal method. During times when Bitcoin has been rapidly increasing in value, as was the case back in May, some players have elected to hold onto their coins rather than to gamble with them.
The price has remained steadier of late, by Bitcoin’s volatile standards at least, compelling punters to start putting their coins to good use once more at online casinos.
NetEnt’s Fairytale Legends series of slots has proven a smash hit, with players wooed by the lush graphics and haunting theme that mines classic children’s stories and infuses them with added horror. The story of Hansel & Gretel is a timeless one that most adults will fondly recall. In a surprisingly dark tale, a brother and sister are left in the forest by their father to fend for themselves. They stumble across a delicious gingerbread house in a clearing but there’s a catch: it’s home to a wicked old witch.
Largest ever Bitcoin payout from this game
The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters slot has earned a reputation for dispensing large payouts, but this is believed to be the largest amount ever won from the slot in Bitcoin.
There have been a string of big Bitcoin winners this year at sites such as BitCasino and Playamo Casino. To find the largest win in Bitcoin betting history however you’d have to go all the way back to 2013 when one punter scooped almost 11,000 Bitcoins at site Just-Dice.com. At the time, that sum was worth $1.3 million. Today it would be worth over $25 million. A $64,000 dollar win may seem like small fry in comparison, but it’s still a nice little earner from a single spin.
“We’ve had a lot of wins on Amatic lately, so it’s nice to see some other slots paying out nicely as well. iSoftbet is a very underestimated game developer with plenty of movie themed titles and without a doubt, massive payouts. A big congratulations to our lucky winner,” said Srdjan Kapor, Marketing Manager at BitStarz Casino.
