After the success of Breakout Casino, a multi-platform online casino that offers a variety of casino games, the Breakout Gaming Group has launched a new online poker site called Breakout Poker.
BreakoutPoker.com is an affiliate of the Curacao-licensed BreakoutGaming.com and the UKGC-licensed BreakoutCasino.com. Games are playable through a PC/MAC software downloadable from the site. Breakout Poker offers an extensive array of online poker games, cash games, daily guarantees and exciting tournaments.
One of the unique features of the Breakout Poker website is the introduction of its BRK (Breakout) Coin which players can use a deposit and withdrawal currency.
The online gambling industry is one of the few industries that has been quick to embrace the cryptocurrency industry. Blockchain technology which is used by cryptocurrencies works very well with online gaming websites as they offer better security features. Some of the top online poker websites in the world have now started offering multiple cryptocurrency options such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
Breakout Poker has also embraced blockchain technology but has decided to use its own cryptocurrency. The virtual currency was first referred to as BRO Coin and was introduced to provide online poker players a seamless deposit and withdrawal experience. The Proof-of-Stake BRK Coin is part of the bigger Breakout Coin Multicurrency payment system alongside the Proof-of-Work Sister Coin.
BRK Coin was developed by reliable names in the industry: James Stroud, PhD, co-founder of cryptocurrency auditing and certification firm James Stroud; a 25-year IT and computer science and gaming expert Paul Kim; 20-year pro poker player Randy Kim; and 18-year iGaming executive Gian Perroni.
A reserve of 7,000,000 BRK is held by the coin company and is currently trading at Bittrex. Apart from BRK tables, Breakout Poker also features USD and Bitcoin plays. In the future, Stroud believes they will be able to further strengthen BRK by introducing BRK across all their gaming platforms.
In a statement, Perroni, chief gaming officer of Breakout Gaming, said
The launch of our new poker site provides our members with access to one of the most exciting and forward-thinking poker networks. The combination of GG Poker’s dynamic product development team and our innovative BRK cryptocurrency integration gives us the opportunity to introduce poker to both existing and new poker audiences.
Breakout Poker is a member of the GG Network, which is ranked 8th by Poker Scout. The network offers Texas Hold’Em, Omaha, and various other propriety games for the online poker players from around the world.
