I've been gambling at various online sportsbooks and poker rooms for 15 years now and the part I've always hated has been the banking. Because I live in the U.S. I've lost count of the number of times I've had my Visa or Mastercard deposits declined. Payouts are even a bigger hassle. Last year I had to wait 4 months for Carbon Sports to send me a check. I've also lost plenty of money at poker sites like Lock Poker who shut-down and took all their players money. Because of all these headaches I finally bit the bullet and bought myself some bitcoin. I bought them at Coinbase using my credit card and then I sent them to the free Mycelium wallet I had set-up on my Samsung Galaxy. After that I sent the bitcoin to a couple of casino and betting sites. What has amazed me most is how fast the payouts are. Instead of waiting weeks or months for a bank wire or check to the US, I now have my money in a couple of hours. My mind is really BLOWN!!
