Southampton Football Club is announcing its first-ever immersive Bitcoin Hunt competition, in partnership with its Main Club Partner, Sportsbet.io.

The Premier League football club is calling on Saints fans and the local community to participate in a new Bitcoin Hunt-style competition to celebrate its ongoing partnership with Sportsbet.io, the leading bitcoin-led provider of sportsbook, casino, and virtual gaming services.

The innovative Bitcoin Hunt is due to officially launch on Wednesday 23rd February ahead of the Southampton vs. Norwich City match, offering participants the chance of winning a Bitcoin, which has been worth between £25k–35k in 2022.

Each round aims to incorporate a new and exciting element adding to the participant’s experience. This will include in-person QR code hunts, social media tasks, and quizzes on Southampton Football Club history, as well as the opportunity to collect limited edition QR cards and participate in the live final, which will take place at the home game against Crystal Palace on Saturday 30th April.

Announcing the competition, Charles Read, Head of Partnership Marketing at Southampton Football Club, said: “We are incredibly excited about the launch of Sportsbet.io’s Bitcoin Hunt competition. It is a project we have been really excited about, working alongside Sportsbet.io, our Creative Agency Formidable and tech build partners Unit 9, and we are delighted to see it go live.

“We believe this is the first competition of its kind and the first time a Football Club has given fans the chance to win a Bitcoin, which has been worth between £25k – 35k in 2022! We hope that everyone will enjoy taking part in the innovative competition, which incorporates virtual and real-life elements”.

Joe McCallum, Director of Sportsbook at Sportsbet.io, added: “The Bitcoin Hunt is an innovative way for Sportsbet.io and Southampton Football Club to enhance our partnership. This will help everyone understand the world of Bitcoin and Blockchain technology in a safe environment. It is a key part of our strategic vision to educate the wider world about crypto currencies and eliminate the myths whilst bringing it into our everyday life.”

During round one of the competition, participants will be encouraged to find a series of QR Codes placed at hotspots throughout the city and the stadium, alongside the opportunity to gather limited edition branded cards. The QR codes will take participants to a virtual microsite to sign up for the competition. Upon registration, all fans will receive a message from a Southampton Football Club legend wishing them good luck for the remainder of the hunt.

As participants progress into round two (week commencing Monday 14th March), they will need to complete a blockchain-style puzzle using historical Southampton jerseys.

Round three will commence on Monday 4th April. This round will involve answering a series of questions whereby the correct answer entails the participant keeping an eager eye on the football club’s social media channels to find a hidden Bitcoin.

The official final will see Southampton Football Club welcome three winners from each round along with one ‘lucky-dip’ winner to St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday 30th April – to take part in the half-time live Bitcoin hunt final.

The lucky dip winner will be chosen randomly from participants who have entered all three rounds.

The final Bitcoin Hunt winner will then be announced in front of a rapturous home crowd and crowned victor, taking home a Bitcoin, which so far in 2022 has been worth up to £35,000.

Drake joined Stake’s live Twitch stream last night to give $1million in Bitcoin away to fans around the world.

The rapper broadcast his night at the online casino, sharing  live action across a number of games with the highlight being an $18million win on his lucky number 11 on the roulette table as part of their first official live stream collaboration.

Though, it wasn’t the artist’s best night on the tables, losing $20million. However, he was able to bring a smile to a number of fans.

Viewers were selected at random to receive gifts worth up to $75,000 in Bitcoin (2.6 BTC), as Drake video called winners around the world, sharing the love with his fellow Canadians and as far afield as Argentina, India, Mexico, Brazil and Jordan.

Drake recently launched a collaboration with Stake.com, the world’s largest crypto currency betting platform, which saw the rapper place a number of large sports wagers on the site – including a recent $2.6 million parlay win.

Stake .com have confirmed Drake will be live streaming and giving away crypto to fans on Twitch again soon.

The night ended well for Drake as the Golden State Warriors secured the Western Conference, netting the Toronto native a million dollars in winnings after he bet $200,000 on Steve Kerr’s team at 4/1.

Crypto Betting Expected To Reach All-Time High Level For Champions League Final

Bullish prediction from crypto gaming pioneer comes even amid slump in cryptocurrencies

A significant global increase in crypto sports betting has set the stage for the 2022 Champions League Final to become the biggest Bitcoin sports betting event in history.

Next Saturday’s showpiece is the world’s biggest club soccer game, with over 700 million fans tuning in to the 2021 match (per Front Office Sports). This year’s final, to be contested between traditional European powerhouses Liverpool and Real Madrid at the Stade de France on Saturday May 28, is expected to draw an even bigger audience—and an unprecedented level of crypto betting activity.

These expectations come against the backdrop of a crypto betting market that is developing at a significantly faster rate than its traditional currency counterpart. According to software developer SOFTSWISS, cryptocurrency use in sports betting increased 116.7% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2022, compared to 60% growth in overall sports betting.

And despite the recent slump in the value of cryptocurrencies, data from crypto betting pioneer Cloudbet suggest that it has not  erased customers’ desire to bet: Turnover has largely held steady – and in the case of casino spend, it may even be increasing.

“As two of the biggest teams in the world meet in the most-watched club match on the planet, we anticipate the busiest day ever for crypto betting,” said Cloudbet Director Leandro Rossi. “It is clear that the Bitcoin betting boom will continue despite the sector’s setbacks, and that an increasing number of bettors are reaping the benefits of the decentralized blockchain model. “The array of Champions League markets available at Cloudbet represent a tangible opportunity for users to grow the size of their respective Bitcoin investments.

“In the four years since Liverpool’s last Champions League Final against Real, the Bitcoin market has grown exponentially, offering tremendous potential returns for soccer fans despite recent market fluctuations.”

On the day of the Reds’ clash with Real Madrid in the Final of May 2018, Bitcoin was trading at $8,500. Even after the recent crypto slump, that coin is still up by over 250% in the current market, offering incredible value to those who have held Bitcoin since the last time the La Liga Champions and Jurgen Klopp’s men contested soccer’s biggest domestic prize.

Cloudbet is offering a full slate of Champions League Final markets for Bitcoin, including full time result, Asian Handicap, and Both Teams To Score.

3 Years, 6 Lamborghinis: FreeBitco.in’s “Biggest Giveaway in Crypto” Continues Its Legacy
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

In 2019, FreeBitco.in introduced Win a Lambo – a contest designed to give back to its user base, a community that helped it become the leading Bitcoin casino in the world.

Since then, over 49 million users have participated in six editions, with six lucky users driving home the most coveted prize in crypto – a Lamborghini.

FreeBitco.in announced the latest winner on April 20, 2022, after a provably fair draw.

And the Winner Is…

Win a Lambo is a Golden Ticket contest – users perform certain actions to earn tickets and participate in a draw.

Win a Lambo Round 6 at FreeBitco.in began on October 21, 2021. A draw on April 19, 2022, picked User 150986 as the lucky winner.

The winner entered 4,305 tickets into the draw. With a total ticket tally of 1,151,098, the user had a winning chance of a mere 0.3%!

The winner had to choose between a Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 or 4.91033121 BTC ($200,000 in BTC deposited directly into their FreeBitco.in account), and they chose the latter.

You Can Win More BTC in Round 7

Win a Lambo 7 began as soon as Round 6 ended. Everyone, including you, can participate and stand a chance to win. With Bitcoin correcting by almost 60% from its all-time high, you can win a higher amount of BTC when the contest ends in October.

 

Follow the steps below to participate in the giveaway:

  1. Create an account on FreeBitco.in.
  2. Collect Free BTC or deposit BTC into FreeBitco.in wallet.
  3. Play the HI-LO dice game, or bet on sports, events, and cryptocurrency prices.
  4. For every 0.005 BTC wagered in total on both the dice game and the event betting page, the user earns 1 Golden Ticket.
  5. Golden Tickets can also be purchased for 0.00025 BTC each.
  6. Collect as many Golden Tickets as possible to increase the chances of winning a Lamborghini.
  7. After the contest ends, a provably fair lottery draw will be conducted to pick the lucky winner.

 

Note: FreeBitco.in has a strategic partnership with FUNToken. FUNToken users earn additional benefits at FreeBitco.in, one of them being the opportunity to collect extra golden tickets through free spins.

It’s that simple. The contest ends in October, so you have time to stock up on Golden Tickets. The more you collect, the higher your chances of winning.
