Live casinos accepting Burundian francs have become popular now that fans of live dealer games from this country want to gamble in francs and not the international currencies. To stay on top of their game, live casino operators have been forced to add francs as one of the available currencies at their platforms, alongside international currencies and other popular currencies in the region.
The Burundian franc (FBu) is the official currency in Burundi today. Although the origin of the franc dates back to 1916, Burundi has been using the Belgian Congo's currency until 1960 when Burundi and Rwanda introduced their own francs. However, it was not until 1964 that the Burundian franc was officially rolled out. Today, it's the preferred currency at live casinos by players in Burundi and other countries where Burundians are.
The Burundian franc is not strong internationally. As of March 2022, about fBu2016 is equivalent to USD1.
Almost all Burundian players use the franc as their preferred currency, and the reason is pretty straightforward. Players want to gamble using a currency they are conversant with. This way, they won't have to hit the currency calculators now and then to size their bets.
