While we here at GoldBitcoinCasino are mostly concerned with developments in the world of bitcoin casino, it is also worth taking a moment to pause and think about some of the other cryptocurrencies that are out there and that can also be used in an ever-growing number of online casinos.

One example is dogecoin. It was inspired by the popular online meme which burst onto the scene in 2013. The meme's populartiy was the main factor in establishing the cryptocurrency which, bit by bit, is gaining more traction in the online world.

What is dogecoin?

Similar to bitcoin, dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that uses an electronic wallet to make and receive transactions. In another similarity to bitcoin, its design and concept allow for the near-anonymous use of the currency. The currency's name and design pay homage to the Doge meme which itself uses a photo of a Shiba Inu dog with poor grammar and humourous observations. This in itself suggests that the creators of dogecoin didn't want it to be taken too seriously and wanted it to be used in a fun way.

Dogecoin casinos

Much like bitcoin, the creation and sudden growth of dogecoin has led to it being adapted for use as another currency for online casinos and the inception of dedicated dogecoin casinos. Just like bitcoin casinos, dogecoin casinos make use of the cryptocurrency to place bets in a safe and secure way and without all the hassle associated with the online use of traditional currencies.

While not yet as visible or popular as bitcoin, dogecoin is a growing force in the online casino community and, gradually, some of the established online casinos are getting involved and trying to bring dogecoin into the mainstream, FortuneJack being one of the most high profile of the online casinos to welcome dogecoin on board.

What to expect with dogecoin casinos?

As with all cryptocurrency casinos, dogecoin casinos offer all kinds of casino games for you to enjoy with plenty of variation among them. On there is a large selection to choose from and you can find a list of some of the games and where to find them here. The signing-up process is as simple as ever and just the same as those you can find with most online casinos that deal in cryptocurrencies.

The overall gambling experience of dogecoin casinos is largely similar to the experience of all cryptocurrency-accepting casinos. You have access to all the same games and the same payment systems and sign-up processes are in use, the only real difference is the use of a different currency to complete your transactions and while dogecoin is still finding its feet in terms of online acceptance, it is growing and more online casinos are opening their doors to this cryptocurrency so the opportunities to play online with it will only continue to increase.
