New Bitcoin-only poker room launches

Tuesday, 21 April 2015

Users of crypto-currency Bitcoin have a new online poker room to try following the recent soft launch of BurnTurn.

“We are extremely excited to jump into the online poker space, especially with the recent exit of our top Bitcoin poker competitor,” said Brandon Casten, Chief Executive Officer for BurnTurn.

“We are creating an online poker experience that caters to beginners and players that do not have access to a traditional online poker site. We are excited to welcome players from jurisdictions that have banned online poker or those seeking a much higher level of anonymity.”

After almost two years of development BurnTurn will be marking its arrival with ‘a robust offering of freerolls and deposit bonuses’, which are to be announced on its website and via Twitter feed.

“I've been playing online poker since its inception and was always annoyed by slow payouts and generic web design; we wanted to look and feel different.” said Casten.

“Since ‘Black Friday’ in 2011, there has been an evolution of online poker and the way people play the game. Great tools such as heads-up displays have been introduced but that has created an intimidating environment for those who want to improve their skills or players just starting out. We are seeking to make poker accessible to the masses again.”
