Why Bitcoin is the Online Gaming Currency of the Future

As the world becomes more digital and global, it’s clear that Bitcoin is the future of online transactions. Although Bitcoin is used in a wide range of industries, it’s particularly well-suited for online gambling. We’ve witnessed how superior online casino gaming is when using this quick, simple and cheap deposit method. 

The speed in which Bitcoin can be processed far exceeds what’s possible with credits cards, bank withdrawals and couriered checks. That’s because Bitcoin doesn’t require a financial institution to authorize and process a payment. The peer-to-peer nature of the Bitcoin network means that instead of a bank processing payments, they go to a Bitcoin “miner” who posts the transaction on a public ledger as soon as it appears on the blockchain. The blockchain is an anonymous system that tracks the movement of Bitcoin in a safe and secure way. 

Miners are paid in millibitcoin (mBTC) for completing a transaction by solving a complex algorithm, and fortunately for Bitcoin adopters, that means the fees associated with Bitcoin transactions are nominal—especially compared to the fees associated with credit card companies. 

The efficiency, simplicity and anonymity made possible with Bitcoin make this particular cryptocurrency a strong candidate for a global online currency. 

Does Bitcoin Change the Way to Play Online?

Some casino players are concerned that adopting Bitcoin means relearning how to play online slots or how to navigate our online casino. We assure you that’s simply not the case. The only “learning curve” with Bitcoin is figuring out how to work the digital wallet and the exchange platform, and this has become easy ever since cryptocurrencies have gone mainstream. To help make this a smooth process, we have recommendations for beginner-friendly wallet and exchange options, such as CoinBase, and have videos with step-by-step instructions on all things Bitcoin in our Video Library. 

Even your bankroll remains unchanged when you use Bitcoin. Bitcoin deposits are automatically converted to USD (or CAD for Canadian players) when they hit your account for a number of reasons. For one, it’s done to protect your balance from any market fluctuations. Bitcoin is relatively volatile compared to other currencies, and if the value of Bitcoin changes while you’re playing a casino game, you can be confident that it won’t have any impact on your bankroll whatsoever. For two, converting the funds to USD ensures that you experience our online casino the exact same way you’re used to when depositing with a more traditional “fiat” currency. 

How to Deposit with Bitcoin (And Claim Bonuses)

The easiest way to get Bitcoin is to buy it using a “fiat” currency like US dollars and/or Canadian dollars. To be able to do that you’ll need an account at a regulated exchange and a digital wallet to facilitate the movement of Bitcoin (sending and receiving). Downloading a Bitcoin exchange that doubles as a personal wallet hits two birds with one stone, and can come in the form of an app downloaded onto your phone. Examples of Bitcoin wallets in the US used for slot games include Blockchain and Coinbase. Be prepared to go through an identification process for the exchange, as your identity needs to be confirmed by a piece of ID before you can make trades. Setting up the digital wallet, however, requires just a valid email address and name. It can be done in just a couple of minutes.

The exchange is where the buying and selling of Bitcoin (and any cryptocurrency) happens, so you’ll want to get comfortable using this digital platform. To get Bitcoin, all you need to do is hit the “Buy” button and follow the prompts to purchase any cryptocurrency you want at market value in a few quick clicks. Upon purchase, you’ll want to direct the funds to your digital wallet using its address. Alternatively, if you’re using an exchange/wallet combo service, the funds can be moved to your wallet without using the address. 

With Bitcoin loaded into your digital wallet, you can use it to make a deposit into your Slots Casino account. In order to do this, you must take the same steps that you normally would to deposit funds, but be sure to select “Bitcoin” from the list of deposit methods Keep in mind we also accept Bitcoin Cash—a fork of the original Bitcoin. A digital address for your Slots Casino account will be auto-generated and ready for you to paste into your wallet when you go to send the funds. 

Keep in mind, when you deposit with Bitcoin, there are certain bonus funds you can claim. The first one, our Bitcoin Welcome Bonus, offers the biggest bonus of all. Up to $7,500 in bonus money can be claimed through your first nine deposits. The first deposit is eligible for a 300% match bonus for up to $1,500 each, and the subsequent eight deposits are eligible for 150% match bonuses for up to $750 each for a grand total of $7,500 if you choose to max it out. After this generous welcome bonus, you can still boost your bankroll with the Crypto Double Up. A 150% match bonus for up to $250 twice a week (plus 50 free spins on a specified slot) eclipses the benefits of the standard Double Up promotion that’s good for a 100% match bonus for up to $150 (with 30 free spins on a specified slot). To claim these bonuses, select the one you want from the “Choose Your Bonus” menu upon deposit. Your playthrough progress will be tracked in your account and displayed through a meter.

How to Withdraw with Bitcoin

With just a 15-minute wait time after your withdrawal is approved, Bitcoin is by far the fastest way to withdraw your bankroll at Slots Casino.

Pop that into your Slots account when withdrawing and once the withdrawal is approved, the funds are sent over to your wallet in lightning speed.

Once they’re in your wallet, you can either convert your Bitcoin to a fiat currency at the exchange, or for the adventurous, hunt down a near-by list of Bitcoin cashing machines, which are like ATMs for cryptocurrencies.
