2015 saw BetKing become the most trusted and most popular crowdfunded Bitcoin gambling site. We added new games, re-branded from Pocket Rockets Casino and had the biggest bet placed in the Bitcoin gambling industry! Players successfully cashed out over ฿35,000 (over $15 million at today's price), wagered more than any other Bitcoin site and took part in some unique promos.
Here is a list of the most interesting stats of 2015:

On June the 19th we saw the biggest bet of the year in the Bitcoin gambling industry when a player named starbuck wagered 1303.16713 Bitcoin ($317,386 at the time of bet) in a single dice roll. He had set his chance of winning as 91.403% to profit 108.3฿ and unfortunately lost.

BetKing paid out over 100 Bitcoin in promos and bonuses. At the start of the new year to mark the launch of a new version of the site we run a promo where we gave away an xBox 360, a Samsung Galaxy tab and console games. In April to celebrate our 2nd year anniversary we done a unique raffle promotion across dice, roulette and blackjack and gave away a PS4 with GTA 5, an HD TV and an nVidia Shield gaming tablet.
Throughout 2015 we tried ideas and games that were not popular and learned many lessons from mistakes in marketing or business decisions. We worked with a very small budget compared to traditional FIAT casinos.
Even with constraints BetKing has flourished and grown into one of the industries leading Bitcoin casinos by proving to be trustworthy, loyal to customers and offering great customer support.
In 2016 we will take our past experience and continue to improve BetKing. We will be adding new casino games, sports, bringing back online poker as well as offering our own software and casino hosting service where you can setup your own casino and let us handle the complicated parts.
Finally, what every player wants to hear, we will have even more and better promos next year!
Thanks to all players and investors for their loyalty and support. We look forward to an even better 2016 and hope you join us for the ride.
