Atari to Launch Crypto Casino in Ethereum-Based Virtual World

Gaming company Atari has announced a partnership with Decentral Games in order to develop a virtual-world cryptocurrency casino.

Atari, best known for iconic games such as Pacman and Pong, issued a press release on Monday announcing a partnership to build a crypto casino in the Ethereum-based virtual world of Decentraland. The proposed casino will be built in the gaming district of “Vegas City” and leased on an initial two-year term.

The new casino will be based upon Decentral Games’ technology and feature Atari-themed games, including one game that will be based on skill rather than luck.

Players can earn Decentral Games’ native token ($DG) by gambling with MANA, DAI, and Atari tokens. According to Decentral Games’ website, they can earn $DG liquidity incentives by providing liquidity in Balancer or Uniswap AAM pools. Those who stake $DG can “govern the casino bankroll.” Once the treasury reaches $500,000, stakers may “vote to allocate funds.”

Atari CEO Frederic Chesnais has this to say: “Through collaborating with Decentral Games, we can move the Atari gaming experience onto the blockchain.”
