Many bitcoin casinos bombard their users with bells and whistles, constantly cranking out endless waves of new designs and new variations of their games on top of huge deposit bonuses in an attempt to bring in new players, and keep their existing player base satisfied. LuckyBit, however, takes a different approach.
Founded in October of 2013, LuckyBit is the epitome of simplicity. Like Plinko on The Price is Right, and Pachinko in many Asian casinos, LuckyBit is a variation of the bean machine, also known as Galton’s Box. The website is simple; users can log into the chat box, copy the bet address of their choice at the bottom, and watch their bets, along with others, on the Plinko machine that takes up the majority of the page.
The website layout has not changed since it launched. Instead of constantly coming up with new games, the developers behind the popular site elected to work on improving the game they had created, to work towards providing the best quality experience for the users as possible. The result of this is a game more suspenseful, intense, and satisfying than all others out there.
From the website, players can choose from five different betting addresses, all of which are attached to different odds and payout percentages, and represented by a different color. Within seconds of sending your desired bet to the preferred address, a chip drops from the top of the screen, along with all other current active bets. Your chip, colored the same as the address you sent your bet to, bounces off pegs, slowly making its way down towards the bottom.
Suspense builds, as your chips makes its way down each level, accompanied by a subtle chink. The further away your chip heads from the center, the better. Each progression away from the center is praised, and each towards is cursed. You can sort of calculate if your bet is going to come with profit or loss, but your fate is ultimately decided by which direction it falls from the last peg in most cases. Each bet keeps you on the edge of your seat, and the ding associated with a winning bet while become music to your ears. You will also learn to hate the clunk sound that represents all losses.
There are four core betting levels: blue, green, yellow, and red. Each level represents a different payout and win chance, with blue being the safest, and red, the riskiest. There is also a fifth level, a white, “promo” level, reserved for community created betting levels.
LuckyBit is known for the power they give to their community. They share their profits with the people who stand by the community, through giveaways, promotions, and contests. The website has a “chat lotto”, which frequently gives out generous amounts of bitcoin to those simply participating in chat. The site also recently introduced shiny bonus chips, which represent a percentage of the site rake tacked on to the current bet.
LuckyBit, although simple, is one of the most unique gambling experiences out there. Since launching in late 2013, the site has recorded over 1.1 million bets and over 49 thousand total bitcoins wagered. If you haven’t done so already, give LuckyBit a try. You won’t regret it.
