Accusations that Rollbit, a new and fast-rising cryptocurrency-accepting online casino, is operating illegally have caused quite a stir in the crypto world. The reality is, however, that this is just the tip of the iceberg.
The license status of the firm is the focus of the allegations, which Rollbit says are presently being reviewed as part of the yearly renewal procedure. The company claims this renewal procedure is typical of Curaçao-authorized platforms. In addition to this, they assert that to keep up with the standards that are required of a licensed casino, they have gone through the same process of renewal each year since the establishment of their business.
Some Serious Inconsistencies
Skeptics, however, have reason to doubt Rollbit’s assertions due to discrepancies between the company’s claims and publicly accessible data about Curaçao gambling licenses.
Slotegrator, a software provider and aggregator for online casinos, reports that so long as the master license from Curaçao is still active after five years, the sub-licenses may remain in place indefinitely. This runs to counter to what Rollbit says about having to renew their license every year.
Further uncertainty was added when crypto and finance researcher FatMan revealed a chat he had with Rollbit’s support team. In the beginning, the firm claimed that the lack of licensing information was a “UI problem,” but he did not buy it. He suggested that one of Rollbit’s new games might have upset the regulator.
As the situation around Rollbit develops, more accusations have surfaced. Others have accused Rollbit of engaging in unethical behavior by supplying false balances to influencers. In this claimed strategy, influencers utilize free money to demonstrate large wins, perhaps attracting their followers into gambling through affiliate links. This practice has been criticized because it is dishonest and lures naive customers while providing the casino with risk-free profits.
The accusations leveled against Rollbit are serious and may seriously damage the company’s reputation. In a statement released in response to the situation, Rollbit said it was in constant contact with the licensor and had made some small adjustments to the app’s user interface per the licensor’s suggestions. Yet the company’s answers haven’t been enough to calm the crypto community’s fears.
Some members of the cryptocurrency community are even demanding that Rollbit be shut down, while others are demanding that the firm provide more information to explain the issue.
Although the future of this situation is uncertain, it highlights the significance of openness and compliance with regulations in the online gaming industry.
