Playing Blackjack at BTC Casinos the Easy Way

Play Blackjack for Bitcoin – An Easy Guidebook to BTC 21 Casinos

Play Blackjack for Bitcoin - An Easy Guidebook to BTC 21

Have you ever played blackjack in a real, land-based casino? How about an online casino, where the action is virtual, but there’s real money on the table? If you said yes to either of these questions, you already have a pretty good idea of what it’s like to play blackjack for Bitcoin and other digital currencies. It’s hardly any different from what you’ve already been doing.

Online casinos offer the same experience as the terrestrial variety, except that you can play from home on a computer or mobile device, without the crowds or travel expenses. Likewise, crypto casinos are very similar to online casinos, except that they support a digital form of currency. Some even operate on a wholly or largely anonymous basis.

At anonymous Bitcoin casinos, you can deposit, play, and cash out winnings, without every divulging who you are, or where you’re playing from. Stick around, and we’ll tell you how it works, what kinds of blackjack games you can play, and the wide range of cryptos you can bet with.

How to Play Blackjack for Bitcoin Online

Realistically, you only need two things to play blackjack for Bitcoin. First, you need a Casino Account with an online operator that accepts crypto payments. Second, you need a Crypto Wallet to hold your Bitcoin or altcoins. You’ll use this wallet to deposit digital funds into your crypto casino account, and to transfer winnings back out.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these items.

Crypto Casinos with Blackjack Games

There are hundreds of casinos accepting Bitcoin and altcoins these days. You may be surprised to learn that the majority of them do not offer BTC blackjack games. That’s because a lot of these operators prefer to deal only in ‘provably fair‘ games. These aren’t bad games, by any means, but they aren’t blackjack, either. They rely on simplicity, so that players can easily review the blockchain record and verify the fairness of a game’s algorithmic results.

When I say simple games, I mean really simple, like a coin toss or dice roll. There are only 2 possible outcomes in a coin toss; 6 outcomes in a single dice toss; 36 outcomes in a roll of two dice (30 if you don’t count both ways to roll each double). Blackjack math is far more complex. In a single-deck game, you can be dealt 1 of 1326 possible starting hands. That number increases to 5356 with two decks, and becomes astronomical with anything more. No one wants to read the blockchain record of such a game to determine if its algorithm looks fair or not.

Fortunately, being the most popular of all casino table games, blackjack has not been entirely overlooked by the crypto gaming community. You can easily find it available in its traditional RNG format, or as a live dealer blackjack game, hosted by the world-leading live casino supplier, Evolution Gaming, among others.

Picking the Right BTC 21 Game for You

Determining which is best for you depends largely on your personal preferences. Are you looking to play with crypto because you can, or because you want the entire experience to be anonymous? Total anonymity relies on provably fair crypto games, which are, unfortunately, the hardest types of crypto blackjack games to find, in our experience.

Or maybe you’re partial to the live scene, where you can enjoy a communal atmosphere similar to that of a land-based casino. Live BTC blackjack wasn’t so easy to come by a few years ago, but today, all the reputable BTC casinos are installing it.

The simulated variety of RNG blackjack games are, of course, the most prevalent at online casinos (crypto or otherwise). Whatever it is you’re after, today’s range of digital currency casinos are all aiming to provide it.

1-2-Easy Crypto Casino Account Sign-Up

Now that you know what games you want to play, you can narrow down your casino choices. Visit the website (or download the mobile app) of the casino you wish to join, look for a Join, Sign Up or Create Account button, and press it.

Here’s where the process can vary a great deal. It will either be easy, or extremely easy, depending on how much information they require. The easy ones will ask for the same registration info as a fiat casino. This usually happens when the oeprator also accepts fiat payments, and/or holds a license from a strict regulatory authority. But as I said, even this is an easy process. Enter your name and address, choose a username and password, verify your email. Done.

The extremely easy sign-ups are the ones that ask for nothing more than a username and password; maybe an email just to verify you’re human and send you notifications as necessary. These are private crypto casinos – the ones that are truly anonymous. The only thing left to do is link a BTC Wallet ID, and you’re off to the races. Which brings us to…

Depositing & Cashing Out w/ Crypto Wallets

The complexity surrounding Bitcoin deposits is long gone. Today, digital wallets are as easy to use as any other form of monetary storage. If you went to the local market for a lottery ticket, you’d pull out your wallet and hand over a few bills to pay for it. A Bitcoin wallet is no different, except that it only exists in the digital, or virtual realm. You can’t hold it, touch it, or physically move its contents around. But just like real money, you can use it to quickly purchase goods and services, including virtual casino chips.

Think of it this way – crypto wallets are to payments what text messaging is to stationary. Years ago, we would hand-write a letter, stamp it and put it in the mailbox. Then came emails; much easier, way faster, and no stamp required. Now, text messages let us send quick notes, instantly, to anyone, anytime. The recipient doesn’t have to check their email to see if they got anything. Texts simply arrive on the user’s smartphone, accompanied by a little chime to let the person know they’re receiving it.

So, loading cryptos into a wallet is kind of like writing an email. Sending crypto from that wallet to another – well, that’s like tapping out a text message. Not only is it super quick and easy, it’s usually free. How is that possible? Because decentralized currencies like Bitcoin cannot be controlled or taxed by any central government, and since Bitcoin owners control it, there’s no third-party processor or presiding corporation to charge you money for sending or receiving it.
