While the craze around Bitcoin just wouldn't die down, the online casinos have already jumped onto the hype train and gotten unimaginable revenues. And now you have the chance to go from beating yourself up for not purchasing bitcoin early on to having a 1000+ BTC balance. And Lottoland – one the best-know Irish lottery operators since 2013 – gives that chance to anybody gutsy enough to pick six numbers for their daily draw.
Lottoland is already known for its controversial decisions about letting bets on lotteries outside of its jurisdiction, like Europe's Mega Millions and American Powerball. This contributed to Lottoland's quick rise in popularity, and now they offer a unique chance to play with fiat currency and win the grand prize in Bitcoin.
While there will be only one person to get a $18 million jackpot, smaller payouts are also possible, with every seventh bet winning a prize of some kind.
The hot question around the lottery is whether the victor will be brave enough to take their prize in Bitcoin, or opt out for a more conventional payout in government-issued fiat currency? Such a multi-million money windfall, while tempting to cash in early, can be multiplied overnight with how volatile is the price of Bitcoin, or crash and burn, leaving the winner with scraps instead of a fortune. We'll have to wait and see.
The only thing left to say is, good luck to participants and thanks to Lottoland for giving us all this chance for a big win.
