Let’s take a look at the most popular gambling dapps
Gambling dapps such as CasinoFair, Play Royal, and Dice2.win are attracting impressive audiences, as crypto holders and newbies try their luck in these self-proclaimed ‘provably fair’ blockchain-based casinos.
Gambling remains the largest single dapp category on DappRadar with almost 1,000 dapps tracked at the time of writing. However, because they are so simple and quick to make, it’s difficult for gambling dapps to sustain a loyal audience. Gamblers are always on the lookout for new and potentially better opportunities to make money.
Although, some gambling dapps have built strong audiences and are using intelligent game mechanics such as daily bounties and rewards to keep their users engaged.
These dapps are concentrated on the EOS and especially the TRON blockchains. Although some gambling dapps also successfully run on the Ethereum blockchain. Here we will look at a variety of gambling dapps from simple games through to online casinos.
Let’s take a look at some of the best gambling dapps:
CasinoFair’s strapline is ‘Famous For Fairness’ and if it sounds like a big claim, that’s because it is. The development team is confident that they are running the fairest casino out there. Combining cutting edge technology with the benefits of blockchain. Unlike other online casinos, your funds are protected and payouts are guaranteed.
Players fund sessions directly from their cryptocurrency wallet, while wagers are held in escrow by smart contracts until a winner is determined. The house must do the same, ensuring you receive winnings instantly. No delays, no partial payments. You get your winnings in your account when you win!
Play Royal is a virtual/online casino running on the Tron blockchain. It features a selection of popular and recognizable ‘casino’ games. Such as texas hold’em poker, blackjack, roulette and dice. Where players can gamble supported cryptocurrencies like TRX, BTC, ETH, USDT.
Play Royal also features several opportunities to share in the revenue of the platform and earn a passive income as well as running regular competitions and special events.
WINk is essentially a gaming platform and is one of the most popular dapps based on Tron. Rebranded from TRONbet in July 2019, WINk provides users with three major game sections DICE, LIVE, and RAKE. It currently supports TRX, DICE (TRC20), and BTT (TRC10) for games. The platform’s native token WIN is based on TRC20
Generally, WINk is a gambling dapp that offers richer gameplay compared to other blockchain gambling dapps.
EarnBet (formerly EOSBet) was the largest dapp launched of all time, and has distributed over $4 million in dividends to its BET token holders. The platform was also the first fully on-chain dapp to receive an official gaming license.
EarnBet offers a variety of provably fair games, with 100% of profit distributed to BET token holders. The platform began on ETH, moved to EOS, and now runs on the powerful WAX blockchain. EarnBet is constantly running large promotions and giveaways.
Dice2.win has a simplistic user experience and consists of four games: Coin flip; Roll a dice; Two dice; and Etheroll, a percentage-based game of chance. The only retention mechanic is a jackpot into which 1% of all bets are accumulated.
In this way, Dice2.win offers by far the most stripped-down and simple gambling experience of the six dapps covered in this article and perhaps makes a good entry-level gambling dapp.
Compared to other gambling dapps RocketGame offers a much simpler set of gambling experiences. For example, there’s no live video poker or slots.
However, it still has all the deeper retention features you’d expect from a blockchain gambling dapp. Including its own token – called RKT – as well as lotteries, dividends, and special events.
The game supports betting mining and dividends. More significantly, RocketGame has also integrated what could be considered game-style retention features. These include daily tasks, challenges, and leaderboards.
