Bitcoin Casino Blog
Bitcasino won two awards at the EGR Marketing & Innovation Awards 2020 that were held virtually on July 30, 2020! We’re ecstatic to celebrate the two awards we received:
We’re proud to be recognised in the competitive casino industry by being disruptive and innovative. For both awards, we were up against some of the most well known online casino brands, such as Mr Green, Betsson Group and William Hill.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you, our players! Your feedback and participation have certainly contributed to what Bitcasino is today, and we look forward to giving you even more fun, fast and fair entertainment.
The Spooky Bitcoin Predictor was a promotional Halloween campaign we ran from October 21 to November 1, 2019. This in-house innovation gave players the opportunity to predict what the Bitcoin price would be on November 4, 00:00 (GMT).
To enter the promotion, players had to wager to earn tickets that would allow them to guess the price of Bitcoin on a given day. They could then monitor both theirs and others’ guesses via our live, on-site leaderboard. The closest guess won the jackpot of 1 BTC (€8,251.89 at the time of the campaign).
The #TeamTrees aim was to plant 20 million trees by the beginning of 2020, with the movement quickly becoming one of the biggest fundraising challenges social media had ever seen.
To help with this global problem of deforestation, we ran a Team Trees social marketing campaign from November 13 to November 30, 2019. During this time, we galvanised our community of players via Bitcasino’s new Loyalty Club to donate their monthly Loyalty rewards to 101,010 plant trees.
The judges felt that our campaign was genuinely innovative, which made it stand out from the other nominations.
In their words:
"A brilliant campaign that drives engagement through community giving as opposed to winning. Bitcasino has done a fantastic job in selecting this charitable cause and making positive noises for this industry.”
The EGR Marketing & Innovation Awards celebrates operational excellence and commercial success in the online gaming industry. This year’s awards had 24 different categories, three of which Bitcasino was nominated for. Our third nomination was for the Innovation in Casino award - a nomination we’ve garnered for the fourth year running.
