Even though the value of Bitcoin, along with the rest of the popular crypto-currencies, has taken quite the dive in the past few months, the online sportsbooks still find it the most appealing payment method. And not only are the sportsbooks welcoming Bitcoin deposits with open arms, they are actually adding more crypto-currencies as both depositing and withdrawal methods.
Currently, the king among the “crypto options” is the always-popular Bookmaker, which at this time take 35 (yes, thirty five) different crypto currencies as depositing method, plus, of course, Bitcoin. No other business, not even most exchanges, are working with such a large number of varied cryptos. And while those 35 don’t offer extra bonuses, besides what’s available for any other depositing method, Bookmaker seems to stand strong behind Bitcoin and any customer using bitcoins to fund their sports betting account gets an additional 25% bonus, just for using this method. To make the deal even sweeter, the player will also get a free withdrawal. The bonus rollover is 8x, which is quite good for the size of the deal. Update: Bookmaker has extended its 25% bonus offer to cover all crypto-currencies available at the sportsbook, not just Bitcoin. Hurray!
Fortunately, they are not the only sportsbook offering a hefty bonus for the Bitcoin user. Another reputable betting site, Bovada Sports, is giving them a run for their money with their $5,000 Bitcoin bonus. Granted, since Bovada is equally popular among the casino players, the bonus is split between its internet casino and sportsbook, but it’s still an amazing deal nonetheless. At the sportsbook one would get a 50% bonus on their first Bitcoin deposit, up to $500 and a 150% match on Bitcoin deposits at the casino, which could be claimed three times. The rollover on the sportsbook deposit is very generous 5x, while on the casino is understandably higher at 30x the bonus+deposit.
Of course, any reputable sportsbook today will have at least
Bitcoin as a funding option for both deposits and payouts and you can
see all of the
recommended Bitcoin sportsbooks here. But at this time the question
is not which sportsbooks take bitcoins (or other crypto-currency), but
where you would be able to stretch your virtual dollar the most. It
appears that the popularity of Bitcoin is not diminishing, neither with
the sportsbooks nor with the general public and hunting for these
bonuses is definitely worth your time.
