    Bitcoin hodlers on August 1, 2017 got a nice surprise when the network hard forked and they now owned coins on both the bitcoin chain (XBT / BTC) and the new Bcash chain (BCH / BCC). Providing you were using a Bitcoin Cash compatible wallet like Breadwallet, Ledger, Xapo, Blockchain or Trezor, you now have double the coins.

    If you would like to gamble your new stash of Bcash, you can now do so at BetCoin. BetCoin have enabled both deposits and withdrawals with Bitcoin Cash in addition to Litecoin and regular Bitcoin. BetCoin are a popular and trusted bitcoin-only gambling operator who offer casino games, a sportsbook and a popular poker room that shares a pool with the Winning Poker Network.

    Thankfully I sold most of mine already for BTC before I was tempted to gamble them all away at sites like this. Many people will probably adopt an easy-come-easy-go approach to their Bcash windfall.

    Is this the only major sportsbook/casino/poker room to accept BCH deposits?

    I doubt Bcash will be a much of thing in a year from now. Most crypto gambling sites are supporting it now because many people are flush with their free Bcash and might want to gamble it.

    The biggest miner that is mining it now are holding 60,000 BCH that they will soon want to dump onto the market so expect a pump. When that happens the price will go to $50.

    Americas Cardroom will soon allow their poker players to deposit with over 60 cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Monero, Litecoin and Dash. For now, withdrawals are only available in bitcoin or the US dollar.

    Bad news for Roger Ver and CSW, BetCoin has been bought by an online gambling company that does not permit citizens from the USA to gamble for real money. As a result, BetCoin have close their poker room and have kicked off any casino gamers from the USA.

    when betcoin poker closed they stoled 0.05 BTC from me so i'm not surprised that they are accepting such a scam coin.

    I presume most of these Bitcoin Cash gambling sites had to shut off deposits and withdrawal yesterday because of the hard fork between Bitcoin Cash SV (Satoshi Vision) lead by Calvin Ayre and Craig Wright and the other fork Bitcoin Cash ABC lead by Roger Ver and Jihan Wu. The hard fork continues so it's quiet bad PR for both chains since they're now unusable.
