The Bookmaker.eu Sportsbook, (one of the more established and reputable online sportsbooks), has just announced a decision to add Bitcoin as an option for deposits and withdrawals. I just checked and it’s already in their cashier. I’m doing a test bitcoin payout and will see how long it takes. They claim deposits will be instantly credited to your account.
This is huge news for those that aren’t very trusting of these new all bitcoin sportsbooks (like Betcoin Sports) that can be started by anybody and does not have to meet any requirements or licensing. Bookmaker.eu is a mainstream online sportsbook backed by BetCris which is licensed by Costa Rica and has been serving customers for over 15 years.
The minimum deposit amount for Bitcoin deposits at Bookmaker.eu is $50 and players are allowed to deposit up to $10,000 per day using this virtual currency. They can withdraw a maximum of $50,000 through Bitcoin.
Unlike bitcoin only sportsbooks (like Cloudbet), Bookmaker.eu is just using the bitcoin currency to transfer money since it is quick, easy and has very little fees for everyone.
According to information from the sportsbook’s management team, any deposits made by Bitcoin will be automatically converted into the currency that the player has set in the account settings. When a player makes a withdrawal request, the payment amount will be converted back to Bitcoin at the prevailing exchange rate at the exact time of the transaction.
As Bookmaker is one of the leaders in the online sports betting industry, it is expected that their decision to offer Bitcoin as a banking method to members will also lead to an increasing number of other mainstream online gambling operators accepting the virtual currency as well. Unlike bitcoin only sportsbooks (like Cloudbet), Bookmaker.eu is just using the bitcoin currency as an extremely efficient way to move money to and from players.
Bookmaker.eu is certainly the most popular online betting sites to add Bitcoin as a payment option, there are dozens of other online casinos and sportsbooks that accept it.
