Sportsbet.io strengthens cryptocurrency capabilities with Litecoin integration

Multi-currency sportsbook Sportsbet.io, has added to its current offering of payment capabilities by integrating Litecoin into its platform.

In addition to being able to pay using other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and SOC coin,customers will also now have the opportunity to deposit, play, win, and withdraw in Litecoin.

Joe McCallum, Director of Sportsbook at Sportsbet.io, commented: “This is just another example of how we always follow up on customer feedback and offer new features that other sportsbooks don’t have.

“Every step we take at Sportsbet.io is made with our players in mind, it only makes sense to integrate more currency options, fiat and crypto, to make our site even more fun, fast and fair for all.”

Developed in 2011, Litecoin has grown in popularity as a cryptocurrency in recent years, now listed as the third most popular altcoin behind Ethereum and Bitcoin. The new currency option is expected to allow payments to be processed at new speeds, while also significantly reducing current transaction fees.

Sister casino site, Bitcasino.io, integrated Litecoin into its pioneering crypto gaming offering in February 2019 which consequently resulted in a deposits increase of 22 per cent.

Earlier this year the leading online bookie announced its sponsorship debut ahead of the Sportsbet.io CONIFA Euros 2019, set to take place in June this year.
