Online Casino Bovada Now Accepts Deposits in Bitcoin Cash
Bovada, one of the internet’s most popular gambling websites, now allows users to deposit funds using Bitcoin Cash, in addition to USD and bitcoin. The online casino has been encouraging users to start depositing funds in bitcoin for months with generous bonuses, but the high fee associated with transferring bitcoin made the transaction less than ideal. The addition of Bitcoin Cash will cut the transfer fee while providing the same efficient deposit and withdrawal speed as bitcoin.
While Bitcoin Cash may not be as ideal as Litecoin, the additional option is a welcome one for long-time users of the online casino. It’s also not a very surprising choice given the fact that the founder of Bovada, Calvin Ayre, is a huge BCH advocate — although he claims he is no longer associated with the company.
According to GambleOnline, Bovada is the number 1 online casino in terms of traffic in the United States, averaging thousands of poker players at any one time.
Getting its start in 1994, Bovada has one of the best reputations in online gaming. They are exclusive to the US market and accept players from all US states except New York, Maryland, and Washington State. You can deposit with VISA debit, prepaid, or credit card. Winnings can be withdrawn for free by check or Rapid Transfer.
Their poker room averages 1200-3000 players at any given time, which makes it the US online poker site with the most player traffic. Another important note is that they’re on the same poker network as the Asian betting site – Bodog88, which brings in a lot of new players from China and Korea. These players love to gamble, and many have little or no experience playing poker against other players. That makes the real money poker games at Bovada looser than you’ll find at any other US poker sites.
Although there are no federal laws prohibiting gambling online, the practice is not necessarily legal in the US. If you’re considering using Bovada or any other online gambling website (and hundreds of dubious crypto-gambling sites are popping up), you should consult the legality in your state or country.
