Bitcoin Live Casinos are in their ascendancy. Every week I am seeing online and live dealer casinos adding Bitcoin as a payment method.
The Cryptocurrency is being slowly adopted right across the online gaming industry.
What’s really interesting is seeing Bitcoin only brands appearing that only take Bitcoin as a deposit option. I’ll go into the reason for this later on.
What started a bit of a fad and niche is now going mainstream.
You’ll be pleased to know that there’s a few live casinos that now accept payments in Bitcoin.
Some of these are casinos I’m already playing at and some are new to me as they only offer Bitcoin.

If you want to play live dealer games online you have two choices of where to use your Bitcoins.
This will be an existing online casino that has added Bitcoin as a payment method.
This will be an online casino that has been setup to solely use Bitcoin as a deposit method.
That’s a very good question and one you’ll see lots of people trying to answer. It’s especially important for people who want to gamble online but are located in areas where it’s illegal for them to do so.
The main reason people use Bitcoin is for the anonymity it provides when you’re making a sale or purchase online. Payment transactions are anonymous, but the rest of the transaction may not be, so don’t automatically believe you can’t be traced if you use Bitcoin.
Remember, you’ve probably given your personal information to the company who you’ve setup your online Wallet with.
You’ve probably used a Credit/Debit card or Bank transfer to purchase the Bitcoin in the first place. You’ve even given a delivery address for the goods you’ve purchased. See what I mean?
So you’ll need to do a lot more than just using Bitcoin to remain anonymous.
To use Bitcoins you need to buy them from a Bitcoin exchange. But before you buy them you need somewhere to store them and that’s called a Wallet.
There are 4 types of wallets:
With all the different types it’s important that you do some research for the one that suit your needs best.
Security, functionality, convenience and fees should be on your list of criteria for picking the right one.
Bitcoin Exchanges are where you buy and sell Bitcoins. There are a few of them.
The most used International ones are Bitsquare, Bitstamp, Bitwage, Coinbase, Kraken and Xapo.
Any coins you purchase are then stored in your Bitcoin Wallet.
Checkout Bitcoin.org, it’s a really useful information resource about Bitcoin with good impartial advice.
You will find a good selection of live dealer games at Bitcoin Live Casinos.
The most popular game when playing with Bitcoin is Live Roulette. That comes in two different playing formats. European Roulette and American Roulette.
Obviously out of the two the European version is the one to play. Bets can be placed on the table or by using the Race Track, that enables you to place bets on single number and their neighbours. It’s also a useful way of placing the common French bets, which cover the different sectors of the wheel.
You’ll be able to play 7 Seat Blackjack using 6 or 8 decks. Both Vegas and European Rules are adopted by most live casinos. Most now have a full range of Blackjack Side Bets, that’s Perfect Pairs, Bet Behind and 21+3. Visionary iGaming casinos carry the innovative Blackjack with Early Payout. It’s a multi player game, where loads of people are playing the same hand. You can cash in your hand early if you don’t want the risk of losing the hand.
There are loads of different types of Live Baccarat that you can play with a Live Dealer. There’s the straightforward game with Player/Banker. Then there’s versions where you or the dealer can Squeeze the cards. Speed Baccarat, which is a fast version of the game takes no prisoners. It’s all over before you know what’s happened. It’s popular but you have to get your bets down quick. All the games come with an array of side bets.
Live Dealer Poker derived games are very popular. 3 Card poker is my favourite, followed by Ultimate Texas Hold’em. Casino Hold’em is by far the most popular game with players. Caribbean Stud Poker is a good alternative, but not as popular as you’d expect.
SicBo is probably the most well known of the live dice games, but Betgames has recently introduced Dice Duel and Dice which offer something different.
There’s a real selection of Wheel of Fortune games. Evolution’s Dreamcatcher is probably the most well known and Betgames also has a good one.
Whilst strictly not Live dealer games, these are played using a live presenter who activates the ball selection machines. There’s various different versions, but they all operate on the same theme. You have to pick out a certain number of winning balls, however the number of balls that you pick in each of the games is different. The most popular games are provided by Betgames.
