Casino games organization Decentral Games has partnered with gaming brand Atari to create Atari Casino inside the virtual world of Decentraland. The launch is scheduled for May 2021. The casino games in the Atari branded location will benefit both the gaming company and Decentral Games.
Atari Casino will become a gigantic casino estate covering 20 land parcels. The online casino will feature gambling and casino games, but also other Atari-themed arcade games. Players can earn DG tokens by playing with MANA, DAI and the ATRI token. 88% of the profits go to the treasury of the Decentral Games DAO.
According to the official blog post, there will be games of luck and games that combine skill and luck. In addition there will be a skill-based game where players can win just by being super good. Every time users play a casino game, they earn DG. Special NFTs are available for purchase to boost the mining rate.
When the Atari Casino opens its doors in May, there will be a virtual party featuring DJ Dillion Francis. In addition Decentral Games has planned giveaways with prizes including NFT wearables, ATRI and DG tokens.
Decentral Games became a DAO
In January Decentral Games made its first move into becoming a completely decentralized autonomous organization, or a DAO, governed by a community. This DAO has to govern 400 land parcels inside Decentraland. In December last year Decentral Games launched its DG governance token. Players earn DG by playing gambling games in the online casinos inside Decentraland.
Players who now hold DG tokens, which currently has a value of $246 per token, gain voting power for the future of Decentral Games. They get to create community proposals to build casinos or organize events. The DG token is up almost 1000% in value since January, when the token was only $22.
What is Decentraland?
Decentraland is a virtual world build on the Ethereum blockchain. Consumers can buy land within this world, and build anything. Currently ownership over virtual land is highly speculative, and the value of these lands increased significantly over the past year. Decentraland launched in February, and players can now visit by using a web browser on a desktop or laptop.
Within Decentraland people can build all kinds of businesses, including for example shops for in-game items, art galleries and games. Currently Matic Network is funding the development of additional games. Decentral Games and Metazone are some of the companies that create games within Decentraland. For example, Metazone is selling complete game installations. Landowners can earn money from those creations, while game creators earn a share of the revenue.
