For example we constantly give away jackpots which has it's own blockchain wallet and everyone can verify that money is there. You can always check what is the casino bankroll size, which is never seen before. In general, provably fair games and transparency makes us unique in a sence that we're perfectly honest in what we do. And I think players like it. The fact that whole casino is sort of a game itself also help us stand out of others and I think that is one of our strongest points. We do not integrate 3rd party games which every operator has, we create them. For example, if you play roulette in our casino, you automatically play in the jackpot promotion, bacause we allowed ourselves to create different type of roulette than everyone is familiar with. And last but not least - we're small but bold and some our moves is closely watched and sometimes copied by others. Basically, we rock 🙂"
