You’ve probably noticed Ethereum’s on a bit of a moonshot right now.
As I write this, ETH’s value is sitting close to $400; it was around $250 just a couple of weeks ago.
This huge increase is great news for the crypto community, investors and all of us who want to see blockchain technology change the world.
But you know who it isn't great news for? Casino players.
The increase in ETH price has been accompanied by high GAS fees for transfers of Ethereum. Decentralized casinos rely on making huge volumes of such transactions, the most pass on the cost to the player.
Even if you are winning, you probably aren’t winning after those GAS fees.
With that in mind, it was a perfect time to get back into our 20,000 $FUN Double Up Challenge. In case you missed part one, we set out to double a 20,000 $FUN bankroll playing at CasinoFair. During our first session, our bankroll was dwindling while playing The Getaways until we hit a big win, leaving us up for the session.
This time out, we decided to try something a little more classic, with a few spins of Roulette.
CasinoFair offers a fantastic version of European Roulette, which is always preferable to the American version, because it has one fewer zero.
We upped the stakes a little this time, opting to kick things off with 500 $FUN per spin on black.
After a fair few spins, we were slightly down, with our bankroll sitting at 18,640.
So we decided to place the single biggest bet the challenge so far: 500 on lucky number 7, and 2,500 on red.
We spun and crossed our fingers.
With our bankroll down around 25 percent to 15,640, and reeling from a minus 5,000 $FUN session, it was time to reevaluate.
