Although you can’t expect to walk into a physical casino and use your virtual Bitcoins to bet on a game of Roulette just yet, online bitcoin gambling has become increasingly popular, especially for users who wish to keep their anonymity, do not have credit cards or bank accounts or simply do not wish to share their financial details in an online environment.
Another enticing aspect of using Bitcoin as your chosen method of deposit is that it can be used from anywhere in the world. This is because Bitcoin is a decentralised system and is not operated from a particular country. You will also be glad to know that there are no transaction fees and minimal waits for transactions to process.
There is a surprisingly huge number of online casino and betting sites that accept Bitcoin as a currency for online gaming, especially considering that this so-called ‘cryptocurrency’ has only been around since 2009. You should also find that you will most likely be able to play any type of online casino or betting game using Bitcoin.
There are many sites that are designed specifically to make use of Bitcoin while others will give you the option of using other currencies. With more of the latter allowing bitcoin, with BGO Casino rumoured to be added to the list.

When gambling with Bitcoins, it is a good idea to keep in mind that the value of a Bitcoin unit fluctuates enormously and should perhaps be treated more as a commodity than as a currency. There are also a few scam sites popping up, making use of the fact that transactions are so difficult if not impossible to trace. It is obviously best to go through a site that has been in operation for a while and has good ratings and reviews.
