May The Fork Be With You: Bitcoin Casino Cloudbet Unveils Bitcoin Cash Giveaway

Leading crypto sportsbook and casino Cloudbet becomes first to honour bitcoin fork

Montenegro - April 16, 2018 —

Leading bitcoin sportsbook and casino Cloudbet is offering its users the chance to share a considerable cryptocurrency windfall. Players who held bitcoin in their Cloudbet accounts on August 1st, 2017, at the time of the bitcoin fork, will receive the equivalent in bitcoin cash.

Cloudbet has set a precedent within crypto gaming by releasing funds tied to what is now the world’s fourth-largest cryptocurrency. The company is the first bitcoin sportsbook and casino in the world (and the Galaxy) to honour the fork, underlining the credibility the platform has built since its 2013 launch in what has become a rapidly growing segment of the gaming industry.

Should they choose to, Cloudbet players will be able to use their windfall to take advantage of some of the best crypto odds and highest limits online, as Cloudbet have simultaneously launched betting with bitcoin cash. The move signals the platforms intention to offer crypto bettors more choice of coins with which to bet.

Mirio Mella, Cloudbet’s Head of Acquisition had these words to say about the platform;

“The creation of derivative bitcoin products in what are termed ‘forks’ has both practical and political implications. Cloudbet is focused on the practical; players want fast, cheap and reliable transactions, and BCH offers a great alternative to BTC. We have no position on the politics but instead are having fun with the Star Wars fork theme and will leave it to others to decide who is the Empire and who are the Freedom Fighting Rebels.”

Cloudbet will use the timestamp of the last common BTC block (block 478558; 1 August 2017, 13:16:14 UTC) to determine customers’ BCH balances; full details on the BCH fork.

Atletico eliminated by Girona in last 16 of Copa del Rey

Jan 17, 2019

MADRID — Antoine Griezmann's late goal couldn't save Atletico Madrid as its defense faltered in a surprising elimination to Girona in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday. Real Madrid and Sevilla lost their matches but both had big first-leg leads and advanced to the tournament's quarterfinals. Atletico's usually stout defense struggled in a 3-3 draw and allowed an 88th-minute equalizer that kept Diego Simeone's team from reaching the last eight for the first time since the coach took over in 2012. It was the first time Atletico conceded three goals at home since it moved...

Henry's Monaco draws 1-1 with Vieira's Nice in French league

Jan 17, 2019

PARIS — Old friends Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira had to split the points as Monaco drew 1-1 with French Riviera rival Nice on Wednesday in a scrappy match featuring three video reviews. Winger Allan Saint-Maximin put Nice ahead in the 30th minute and 17-year-old defender Benoit Badiashile equalized shortly after halftime, becoming the youngest scorer in the French top flight this season. Badiashile's header from a corner was deemed to have crossed the line by the use of goal-line technology. Henry and Vieira are in their first seasons coaching in France, but they go way back and hugged warmly...

Bayern looking to catch Dortmund as Bundesliga resumes

Jan 17, 2019

BERLIN — Six points behind midway through the season, Bayern Munich's bid to catch Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund begins Friday at Hoffenheim. The six-time defending champions find themselves in the unusual position of challengers after a difficult opening half to the season. Bayern dropped points at home against Augsburg, Borussia Moenchengladbach, Freiburg and Fortuna Duesseldorf, while losing matches at Hertha Berlin and Dortmund. Dortmund, meanwhile, stayed unbeaten until a 2-1 loss at Duesseldorf shortly before the league's four-week winter break. Playing fast-paced attacking soccer, Dortmund has brought a breath of fresh air to the league. For the first time in...

Starring role beckons for Alphonso Davies at Bayern Munich

Jan 17, 2019

BERLIN — Canadian teenager Alphonso Davies could be thrown in at the deep end. The 18-year-old winger will likely get his first taste of Bundesliga action for Bayern Munich in the coming weeks, if not on Friday. Bayern restarts the league after the winter break at Hoffenheim, where Davies could play because of injuries to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman are the only two other healthy wingers Bayern has. Davies, a naturalized Canadian born in Ghana, completed his $22 million transfer from the Vancouver Whitecaps this month and made his Bayern debut on Sunday in...

Griezmann standing in way of Barcelona's title march

Jan 17, 2019

BARCELONA, Spain — Antoine Griezmann is almost single-handedly keeping Atletico Madrid in the Spanish league title race. With the league at its halfway point, Griezmann is challenging Barcelona's Lionel Messi for the status of most valuable player for their clubs. While Messi is beyond doubt the top player in Spain — and more — Atletico has stayed in second place behind Barcelona almost exclusively thanks to the goals of Griezmann. The France forward has done more than any other of his teammates, especially in recent weeks, to keep Atletico five points behind Barcelona. And with Sevilla and Real Madrid already...
