  • As the wider crypto market continues to stagnate with a lack of volatility, crypto traders are frequently turning their attention to on-chain betting platforms like last week's phenomenon; hamster racing.

    Coco's casino features a slot machine inspired by Milady NFTs and another that focuses on popular memecoins pepe (PEPE) and dogecoin (DOGE). It also hosts three traditional casino table games in blackjack, baccarat and casino hold'em.

    The casino brands itself as "provably fair" as each game generates a seed and reveals its hash using the SHA256 algorithm, this seed is created before each game and ensures that nothing can be tampered with.

    Popular crypto casino Rollbit has also been gaining traction in light of the stable market this month, with its native token (RLB) rising to 7 cents from 2 cents.
