BitStarz has crowned another bitcoin gambling champion with a 19.2 BTC ($279,000) quick payout on Amanet's (Amatic Industries online) Book of Fortune slot. The lucky player from Russia reportedly generated a 1,000x multiplier and collected the huge cash prize on a single spin.
Highly Volatile Game
In a press release from the casino they don't shy away from the fact that this is a highly challenging game with extreme streaks in both directions: "Through a variety of betting levels, this high volatility game kicks up the level of adventure, with it certainly not afraid to put a bumper prize on the line," read one of the statements.
The game has ten pay lines and a wide betting range. You don't have to deposit cryptocurrency to play there. BitStarz was the first casino in the world to let players bet in both international fiat currencies and BTC. So players can bet 0.01 per line, or bet max depending on their bankroll and appetite for risk.
The theme is mystical and reel symbols include wizards, castles, witches and the wild Book. Land 3 or more books anywhere to trigger free spins. During the bonus spins a symbol will be selected as the expanding symbol, and these pay in any combination, whether or not they appear on consecutive reels.
