UFC 172:  Jones vs. Teixeira

Saturday, 4/26 @ 22:00 EST on PPV

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones (19-1)  (-575) faces arguably his toughest test to date against Brazilian beast Glover Teixeira (22-2) (+445).  Since his dominating victory over “Shogun” Rua at UFC 128 to capture the 205 belt, “Bones” has successfully defended his title six times and the Pound 4 Pound star has no intentions of stopping anytime soon.  Challenger Teixeira, who finishes his victims 92% of the time, is currently riding an impressive 20 fight win streak dating back to 2005.  In the co-main event, Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis (12-1) welcomes Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (16-4) back to the UFC after dismantling his past six opponents outside of the organization.

BitcoinRush.io (CBTC) ACQUIRES BIT777, PEERBET

BitcoinRush.io (Havelock Investments ticker symbol: CBTC) today announces the acquisition of popular Bitcoin Gaming properties Bit777.com, Peerbet.org, and Peerdice.org from Ultraplay, Ltd. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

BitcoinRush.io (CBTC) was the first Bitcoin-only gaming establishment to offer unique, provably-fair games along with a full Sportsbook. Operating successfully since May 2013, they offer HTML5 Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Video Poker and Hi-Lo in their Casino.

Bit777 is a Bitcoin-only Casino, designed by Ultraplay Ltd, offering over 50+ flash-based games and have taken in over 1 million bets!

Peerbet.org is a popular community-based Bitcoin Gambling site offering chat, raffles, a proprietary “Wheel” game, dice, and more.

Peerdice.org, an offshoot of Peerbet.org, is a unique new community “versus” style dice game with only a 0.3% house edge. Players select their rolls and bet against each other on the site. Since launching February 1st, the site has already supported over 250,000 P2P games.

CasinoBitco. in first announced their goal of growth via an acquisition on Havelock Investments in December 2013. Since then, BitcoinRush.io has been in negotiations with Ultraplay and other Bitcoin Gaming operators looking for a deal favorable to all parties involved. Ultimately, the acquisition of Bit777/Peerbet was a the best fit for BitcoinRush.io not only due to the strong financials Bit777/Peerbet bring to the table, but also the opportunity to bring awareness of BitcoinRush.io to over 15,000 registered users on Bit777/Peerbet.

BitcoinRush.io is extremely excited to add Bit777/Peerbet to their current assets and eagerly looking forward to integrate all sites under the BitcoinRush.io brand

Ultraplay will continue some involvement in operations of the acquired properties for the foreseeable future, and there is no immediate impact to players on Bit777/Peerbet. BitcoinRush.io ultimately intends to merge many of the feature and functionalities between the various sites over the next 6 months to build the largest and best Bitcoin Gaming network around.
