Blockchain Innovations Corporations Launch Pebwallet.com

Las Vegas-based international blockchain technology supplier for regulated gaming industry, Blockchain Innovations Corporations (BCI), has announced the launch of their brand new crypto-wallet – Pebwallet.com.

In a recent announcement here on LCB, we brought you the exclusive news of BCI's CEO Matthew Stafford speaking at this year's iGB Live event in Amsterdam, that begins on July 17th. A big part of his presentation will be devoted to company's latest innovation, Pebwallet – a fully functional cryptocurrency wallet for managing and exchanging cryptocurrencies. Pebwallet users will be able to buy, sell and exchange wagers and gain access to BCI's smart contracts platform.

The cryptocurrency wallet also uses an API to communicate with any operator who may allow wagering between players via pay-as-you-go digital currency. Users will be able to exchange Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash etc. for PebbleCoin – made exclusively for gambling and one of the first to use smart contracts, with the outcome of any public sporting event attached to it and trade them as coins. It's an extremely safe and reliable cryptocurrency, prompting Stafford to explain that it “utilizes a best-of-breed crypto-note distributed ledger and a delegated proof of stake distributed network for maximum security at near-zero cost.”

Stafford went on to comment on Pebwallet: “Our solution is easy to use for the player and simple for an operator to integrate. Our crypto-wallet seamlessly integrates with existing player account management systems and, with a single email to their player database, operators can offer a one-click registration for any known player to set up their crypto-wallet and then begin accepting cryptocurrency for smart contract wagers.”

PebbleCoin, around which the company's technology is built, has been around since 2015 and is the only cryptocurrency that can facilitate real-time wagering.

LeoSafePlay Becomes a Standalone Business

LeoSafePlay Becomes a Standalone Business
LeoSafePlay Becomes a Standalone Business

Online casino operator, LeoVegas, one of the heavyweights of the industry, has gained a huge following and a favorable reputation, in part, thanks to their continued efforts to improve the responsible gambling environment on a global level. This is why some time ago they have established LeoSafePay, a responsible gambling initiative which was a branch of the company whose primary focus was to take care of players who feel that gambling has a negative impact on their lives. LeoSafe Pay takes care not only of LeoVegas punters, but is looking at the bigger picture and providing services to a wider gambling community.

On July 10th, it was announced that LeoSafePlay was given the status of a standalone business. Its management team has also been changed and reshuffled – from January 7th 2019 on, Richard Woodbridge will be the company's new CEO. Also, LeoVegas' Chief Commercial Officer, Rikard Ljungman, will be leaving his position within the company to focus solely on LeoSafePlay's ventures in the responsible gambling realm. The company's official statement reads: “LeoSafePlay will be run as a separate business unit in order to create the best conditions for the next generation responsible gaming system based on machine learning.” Company's CEO, Gustav Hagman, added, speaking about Woodbridge: “Richard's background and personality are a perfect fit for LeoVegas as we continue to focus on growth and sustainability. Overarching responsibility for operations is growing increasingly important now that we have some 750 employees, of whom 400 are based in Malta. LeoVegas is a data-driven company in which we use a number of key metrics to further improve ourselves and increase our productivity.”

Commenting on the appointment of Rikard Ljungman, Hagman said that Ljungman was one of the “initiative-takers behind LeoSafePlat and that he has the right enterprise to take the next step to make LeoVegas leader in reponsible gaming technology.”

Richard Woodbridge himself stated: "LeoVegas is the leading GameTech company in the industry, and I have a passion for working with fast-growing tech companies. I am looking forward to being part of LeoVegas' continued journey of growth and optimising LeoVegas' operations, with sustainability as a guiding principle."

Also, Louise Nylen will assume the newly created role of Deputy CEO of LasVegas Mobile Gaming Group. She is the former Chief Marketing Officer of LeoVegas and will be appointed on her new position immediately.

LeoSafePlay was launched in November 2017 as a platform that keeps players out of gambling related harm.

A Little Risky Play Turns Comps into a Nice Payday

A Little Risky Play Turns Comps into a Nice Payday
A Little Risky Play Turns Comps into a Nice Payday

LCB members are quite diverse gamblers, but we all have at least one thing in common, we want to win big money. Our new, "Big Weekly Winner" posted a surprising screenshot of his recent withdrawal, $1,267 from Grande Vegas Casino, using only comp points for stake.

Mikino is an active Sr. Member at LCB, with his 6 year anniversary approaching in September.

You can usually find him in the No Deposit Casino section of our forum, looking for a good deal or sharing the freebies he has found, so other members won't miss out. But on this day, our member had a freebie that was just for him. He cashed in, 2000 comp points in exchange for one crisp, 20 dollar bill.

If you know Mikino, then you know what game he's going to be playing, roulette! Sure, lots of people play roulette, so we asked him why roulette and he said:

"I played only roulette. I think roulette has better probable win than slots."

Hmm, now let's not be hasty, let the guy tell his story.

So, you cashed in your comp points and cashed out a nice win. We'd love to hear the middle of this story. "I tried hit zero for 2 dollars (I had possible only 10spins). I guess zero on 5th spin. My balance was 82 dollars and after I played lines, street, split or corners. If my balance was higher then 250 dollars, I played solo numbers too. I had very much luck. 2 times I hit solo number for 10 dollars or street for 30 dollars. My playing was very risky." Risky business indeed. You didn't get your first win until you were halfway through your balance, but everything seemed to change after that happened. One solo number for $10 (35-1), but 2 solo numbers, wow! Then you hit the street for $30, (11-1) and ended up with a $1,267 win, all from $20 you got from redeeming your comp points. Looks like risky play paid off.

Do you have any plans for your winnings? "yes. 500€ I sent on my bank account and 500€ on other casino." Congratulations Mikino, enjoy your winnings.

While most people will agree, if you want to maximize your odds, don't play roulette. On the other hand, if you are a slots player, maybe Mikino has an idea that's worth a spin of the wheel.

The exhibition of new games will include two intense arcades – The Golden Owl of Athena and Dragon Kings.
