I'll add to this list when I find more good ones.

This is why I think SatoshiBet is currently the best.

Why these?

Because I have played at them and I like them.

I base 90% of my opinion on the impression I get from the casino (and the people running it). If I'm going to gamble with my money, it's going to be with people who seem cool.

Looking at the website and reading a few pages usually tells you everything you need to know...

What I look for.

Well, it's more like what I'm not looking for. And that's when a casino focuses their attention on getting my money more than trying to create a cool place to gamble online.

You know, like using completely generic software and then spending the rest of their efforts trying to look glamorous.

  • The overly flashy website that gives you a seizure before it even has chance to finish loading.
  • A "GET $1,000 FREE!" deposit bonus that you'll never actually get.
  • Pictures of semi-naked females holding a decks of cards suggestively -- because this is exactly what happens all around you when you play blackjack in your web browser.

Thank you very much, but I just want to gamble. All I need is simplicity and honesty. I don't need any of this tomfoolery.

Who is Tom anyway?

Why I like Bitcoin Casinos.

First of all, I like Bitcoin. I like it because it's an open-source version of money that doesn't force you to use a bank, which is excellent.

By open-source I mean that anyone is able to view (and improve) the actual bitcoin code on GitHub.

Secondly, here is a list of reasons for Bitcoin casinos specifically:

  • Better websites. Not always, but Bitcoin makes it easier for tech people to run an online casino, as opposed to it being restricted to marketing people with a license. Online casinos are essentially websites with online games, so the more open online gambling is to talented programmers the better.
  • Faster withdrawals (and deposits). Bitcoin doesn't have to jump through the same payment processing hoops as government-issued currencies. The blockchain takes care of payment processing, so bitcoin deposits and withdrawals can take as little as 10 minutes.
  • Anonymous gambling. Or in other words "Not having to create an account and submit endless amounts of information about yourself just for one spin the roulette wheel". Bitcoin isn't weighed down by the same limitations as fiat money, so the ability to gamble freely online is only now possible thanks to Bitcoin.

Whats not to like?

Bitcoin allows anyone with the right technical ability to set up an online casino. This is cool, but it also creates a bit of a Wild West for Internet gambling. Depending on your view of "Wild Wests", this can be a good thing or a bad thing.

For example, if you like to blindly hand your money over to people on the Internet, you may be in for a spot of bother.

On the other hand, if you like to take your own calculated risks, you shouldn't have too many problems.

But this is not to say things were ever safe in the past. The Internet has always been riddled with scams, and online casinos are no exception; despite all their "licensing" and "regulation".

At least now with Bitcoin casinos the onus is blatantly on me/you to only deal with online casinos we like/trust. I think this is a better way of doing it. Even if it means some people may learn a hard lesson along the way.

So just be careful. Hopefully this page is helpful, but remember that it's a list of casinos that I'm happy to use.

Useful stuff about Bitcoin and Casinos

Seeing as this is my main page on Bitcoin casinos, I find it incumbent upon me (I like to throw fancy words in to sentences every now and then - I picked this one up from the first episode of Prison Break) to provide some helpful links on the subject.

  • I'm guessing you didn't get to this page (or the bottom of it) without having a rough idea of how Bitcoin works. If you did, this is the best 5 minute introductory explanation to Bitcoin I know of.
  • If you're looking for a reliable place to store your bitcoins, I'm a big fan of Electrum.
  • BitcoinTalk (the original bitcoin forum) has a sub-forum dedicated to gambling websites, which is well worth checking out if you want to get a handle on the current bitcoin gambling landscape.
  • Another helpful forum I have come across for discussing online casinos in general (and how reliable they are/aren't) is CasinoMeister. It's a proper old-school website, and it's full of the old guard who know a thing or two about trustworthy casinos.

That's about it for now. Good luck.
