Ever since I started gambling online, depositing and withdrawing has been a massive pain in the ass. I've had to apply for numerous credit cards over the years because my old ones kept getting declined. I've lost track of the number of times checks have bounced when I tried to cash them and I've lost substantial amounts of money when poker rooms shut-down. Now that I've been using bitcoin for a couple of months, I can't understand why any US-based poker player or sports fan would bother using anytime else. Apart from the inconvenience, you also get hit with crazy fees every time you use a Mastercard or Visa. Online gamblers in the United States need to wise up and join the BTC revolution!
