Online gambling: Problems and Solutions

Online gambling has been going strong for a number of years now, and it is easy to see why. The convenience of online gambling gives you your favourite games at the comfort of your home. When there aren’t any casinos in your vicinity and you have to drive 2 to 3 hours to reach the closest casino, online gambling offers a quick and easy solution to this problem. There is one more exciting thing – bitcoin poker. Year 2019 brought stabilisation in cryptocurrency markets and bitcoin became another viable and simple solution if it goes to depositing and withdrawing your money.

Online gambling sites offer a plethora of different games, from poker to roulette, slots, sports betting  and other events that one can choose from, so it is safe to say that first before you start playing you should always do some research of all the different sites, because there are a number of them, and different sites offer a different choice of games. It is also always smart to research the site that you will be playing on, it is never a bad decision to be safe and reassured that your site is good to use. In the end it is your money which you will be gambling so always go with what your gut tells you and trust yourself, no one will be earning your money for you.

When it comes to online gambling in America this can be quite tricky, because it is illegal in most states to gamble online. Only recently did congress allow online sports betting. They did this by removing PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act) which was set in 1992 to ‘protect the integrity of the sport’ now the tables have turned and it is up to state’s whether to allow it or not.  Other than that, when it comes to playing your favourite casino games online, only very few states allow for online gambling.

What can you do if betting is illegal in your state?

The solution that Americans have is to bet on offshore websites using cryptocurrency like bitcoin, the reason for this is that bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency work on a decentralised technique which means that any transaction that one does via bitcoin is anonymous, and would be difficult to trace back to the user. Since bitcoin is decentralised it is not passed through one medium, like a bank, but many different people verify transactions. The basis on how and what to verify is agreed upon by the users. It is also safe because people cannot see your personal information, if you buy something via bitcoin, personal bank information is not shared, and thus creates an extra layer of assurance and safety for the user.

Hence if gambling is illegal in your state/country all you need to do is convert your money to bitcoin, open an online wallet with a site of your choosing and transfer depending on how much you want to play.


Online gambling is made accessible to all with the help of cryptocurrency, all one needs to do is, convert a set amount of money to bitcoin, find an online gambling site which you like and trust and open up a wallet, this will allow you to play your favourite casino game irrelevant of your location. When it comes to bitcoin one can be at rest in knowing that cryptocurrency does not require you to share personal information so therefore nothing is easily traced back to you. As I mentioned before always keep in mind that you should always follow your instinct when it comes to where to play, what to play and how much you’re willing to spend, because this is your hard earned cash which no one helped you make.
