    Bit coin to bookmaker

    Getting ready to make 1st bitcoin deposit to Bookmaker. Their website says deposit straight from exchange. It gives instructions to do this. Any body here depositing this way? I've been going exchange to wallet to BAS. I would like to cut out middle man. Bookmaker makes it sound like this is way its always done. Exchange to bookmaker.

    Stopped using a middle wallet. Just go straight to book. Middle wallet costs time and extra fees.

    Middle wallet helps if you want to get it there quicker. I am paranoid about being in bitcoin.

    If you send with a higher fee in the middle wallet, people will process your first transaction (exchange to middle wallet faster), in order to unlock the higher fee on the second transaction ( middle wallet to book)

    I don't know how much fee coinbase includes with the send, but I doubt its that high.

    I've used exchange to Bookmaker numerous times, no problems. Common opinion is if the exchange notices this method your account will terminated. As far as Coinbase is concerned, I say "good". Be doing me a favor, never was a big fan of them.

    How would an exchange know that a random one time use crypto address is a sportsbook?

    i don`t think the exchange gives a damn where bitcoin goes or what its used for. It`s government bullshit they are worried about.

    I think I would be safe sending straight to sportsbook. Plenty of other people say never do this. Just a small doubt in back of my mind. I agree with Shifty.

    My advice is to go for it! I started with crypto betting and i am very satisfied with its simplicity. It's fast, anonymous, and most of all secure.
    The bookmakers don't ask for KYC and verification documents. Only the exchange asks for verification. The exchanges use very secure systems to protect your account (i have never had a problem with this so far) They don't ask for commissions neither for deposits nor for withdrawals, which is great! The only commission is for the exchange, although there are some bookmakers that they relieve their players from that burden and they pay it themselves.
    Do not hesitate. Find a serius bookmaker and a solid exchange, Kraken, Binnance, Coinbase, for instance and you'll be fine.
    Good luck!

    Like others said it's fine doing it that way.....

    BookMaker works with BitCoin very effectively.

    any of the exchanges that are US based will eventually ban you because they have banking regulations they will need to conform to

    But this does remain a risk.

    Does not appear to be as risky as it once was, but if you REALLY need that exchange account it is best to go through the extra cost of sending to yourself before going to a book.

    I’ve done Coinbase to books direct probably over 100 times, never a problem. I know others have reported problems but they’ve never bothered me.

    I use a US. based exchange. My gut feeling is you would only have a problem if the feds or law enforcement were investigating you. I live in a non gambling state. I enjoy owning a little bitcoin. I think its the future of money. I Would hate to get my Exchange account frozen. I bet $100, $200 a game, maybe $500 on super bowl. I know US. banks are not gambling friendly. I will only make a few gambling transactions a year. What the HELL.

    I have withdrawn from betcris (which is the boss of bookmaker) many times and also deposited couple of years ago. You can go straight from wallet to book. No need for middle man. Betcris/bookmaker accepts bitcoin and change it to your betting account's currency and they use the going live rate without any spreads or commission. In pinnacle they use shitty conversion and for this reason i stopped using bitcoin with pinnacle.

    I play in Betcoinbookies and they haven't asked any verification documents.

    btc is always preferable for books. if you make a big score with cc or debit they will be hesitant to pay you, you will have to jump through a million hoops
