Play Real Money Poker and Online Casino Games with Bitcoin

You’ve probably heard how difficult it can be to deposit into an online casino for real money play. From verification requirements to security considerations, the whole process is often complicated and time consuming. This is particularly true of credit card deposits, as the card provider will usually try to confirm the transaction too.

This is why, here at Ignition Casino, Bitcoin is our preferred payment method. In addition to being easier and more secure, Bitcoin transfers also tend to be quicker and smoother. They’re also more rewarding, with our Welcome Bonus rising to 300% of your first deposit (up to $3,000) when you use Bitcoin.

That’s right! You’ll get up to $3,000 of extra play money just for making your first deposit with Bitcoin. Talk about getting off to a winning start!

And you’re sure to enjoy using this bonus on our great selection of online poker, online pokies, and classic casino games. We’re one of the leading online casinos for real money play and we have all of your favourites. From dozens of different pokies to table games (like blackjack, craps, and baccarat) and dice games, you’ll find it all at Ignition.

This is in addition to our poker site, which has options for all playing preferences, bet limits, and skill levels. From free online poker to poker tournaments with massive, guaranteed prize pools (want a share of $1 million?), we have it all. We even offer other varieties of poker (like Omaha Hi-Lo) if Texas Holdem’s not your thing.

If you need a bit of a break and want the chance to win big, Ignition Casino could be your perfect escape.

Why Play with Bitcoin?

Why Play with Bitcoin?

One of the quickest and easiest ways to get money into, and out of, your Ignition Casino account is Bitcoin. While processing of payments by other methods (e.g. credit card) can get held up, Bitcoin transfers are fast, secure, and anonymous. This means money in your account quicker and more time at the online poker or casino tables!

Best of all, Bitcoin gives you complete control over your money. Once you’re up and running with it, you’ll have your own Bitcoin wallet that only you have the “key” to. And this will be protected by strong encryption codes, meaning no one else can see (or touch) your virtual cash.

What’s more, as Bitcoin is not held or managed by a central organisation (e.g. a bank), it’s completely anonymous. No one else can track when or how you got your Bitcoin, or when or how you spend it. As such, it gives you the security and freedom to use your money however you want.Why Play Casino games with Bitcoin?

How to Deposit with Bitcoin

The good news is you don’t have to be techy to use Bitcoin. While the whole cryptocurrency thing might seem complicated, using digital currency for online payments is actually pretty straightforward. In fact, as our handy Bitcoin Guide shows, making a deposit with Bitcoin only takes a couple of easy steps.

Put simply, if you’ve come to our online casino for real money play, you can make a Bitcoin deposit by:

  1. Setting up your digital wallet: This is where your Bitcoin will be kept once you have bought them. It’s also where you can make payments out of, and into, using Bitcoin. Generally speaking, you’ll only need to do this once (i.e. you don’t need a new wallet for each Bitcoin payment).
  2. Opening an account with a crypto exchange: This is where you’ll buy your Bitcoin. Most exchanges work much like stock trading platforms and you’ll need an account to actually make a purchase. Again, you’ll generally only need to do this once (i.e. you don’t need a new account for each Bitcoin purchase). 
  3. Buying some Bitcoin: Once your accounts are all set up, it’s time to get yourself some digital currency! You do this using your chosen crypto exchange and can usually pay with your credit card. Once your Bitcoin has been credited to your exchange account, you’ll need to transfer it to your digital wallet.
  4. Putting money into your Ignition Casino account: In your Ignition Casino account, click “Deposit”, then “Bitcoin” – this will generate a Bitcoin wallet address and QR code. Then, go to your digital wallet, select “Send”, and enter the wallet details (i.e scan the QR code or paste the address). Once this is done, you can enter the payment amount and process the transaction.

Generally speaking, Bitcoin deposits will appear in your Ignition Casino account within a couple of minutes. Once they’ve cleared, they’re ready to be used in our online casino for real money play.How to Deposit with Bitcoin

New to Online Poker?

If you’ve never played online poker before, it’s best to start slow. Before giving real money poker a crack, try a few hands of free online poker. This will help you get a sense of how the game goes and how our software works.

If you want to speed up your learning curve, check out our guide on how to play poker. You might also want to read our piece on winning poker strategies, which explains which moves to make and when.

Playing Poker in our Online Casino for Real Money

Once you feel like you know what you’re doing, you can graduate to playing real money poker. This will really raise the stakes and should put those skills you learnt playing free online poker to the test. Play your cards right and you’ll also get to experience the thrill of a big real cash win.

However, you should try not to get too caught up in all the fun and excitement. Remember, you’re playing with your real, hard-earned cash and the last thing you want is to blow it all. To help protect your cash reserves, we recommend putting in place a few simple rules, like:

  • Don’t put more than 10% of your cash on one table.
  • When playing Texas Holdem, make sure you have enough cash for at least 20 big blinds.
  • If you do go bust, take a break and come back when you’ve got a clear head.

Sticking to these rough guidelines should help you hold onto your cash, and keep playing, for longer.Ready to get in on the action? Join Ignition Casino today!
