As Bitcoin continues to create new all-time highs, we caught up with Erik King, the founder of popular gambling guide Gambla.com to discuss the prevailing trends in online gambling. We asked King a few questions and this is what he had to say:
Q: Let us start with the basics, what is Gambla?
Erik King (EK): Gambla is a great New Zealand casino guide where you can find great new casinos with or without cryptocurrencies as deposit options.
Q: What made you start Gambla and how long have you been involved with Gambla?
EK: Gambla was made as an effort to involve more charity into the world of gambling. Now, players have the option to plant a tree every time they want to try a new casino online. I have been involved in Gambla since our start in 2019.
Q: According to you, what makes a good online gambling platform?
EK: A good gambling platform is made by putting easiness of deposits aligned with great games and fast withdrawal options. Those factors are way better than any design. You should know that free spins, no deposit and free casino bonuses on new online casinos will still be eligible on Gambla even with crypto casinos.
Q: What are the factors one needs to consider while choosing the right platform?
EK: They should consider what is important to them, like if crypto deposits are your thing, then maybe go for a crypto-friendly online casino.
