Atari Plans to Set Up Online Crypto Casino Next Month
Entertainment software company Atari SA is planning to start an online casino next month, the latest step in Chief Executive Officer Frederic Chesnais’s effort to revitalise the firm.
The casino, developed in partnership with Decentral Games on the Ethereum blockchain, will include Atari-themed games and Atari non-fungible tokens (NFTs), which can be leveraged to earn more digital currency.
The collaboration “can move the Atari gaming experience onto the blockchain,” Chesnais said.
The companies expect to see bets of $150 million in 2021 and $400 million over two years, according to their joint statement.
