Cryptocurrencies are accepted and used in almost every industry today, and the list continues to grow. Bitcoin is the most commonly used crypto to make online payments and receive payment for goods. That popularity is showing no signs of slowing down, so it came as no surprise when the big-hitters of the online gambling industry decided it was time to join the party and start accepting wagers paid for in crypto.

It is a slow process with only the leading names in the industry allowing members to add Bitcoin to their existing debit and e-wallet payments. That move was welcomed by bettors with many quickly taking advantage of the changes. Thousands of bets are now placed using crypto payments every month, and the current gambling laws in Canada permit residents to follow this trend.

With the hotly anticipated NFL season fast approaching and the NHL campaign not far behind, bettors have time to seek out a bookmaker that accepts their preferred cryptocurrency and begin placing bets on their favourite teams, players and markets.

Choosing the bookmaker that best suits your needs as a punter is no easy task, especially with so many sportsbooks promoting themselves as the most generous and modern available. In this article, you’ll find helpful details on how to secure the bookie that’s right for you. We simplify the registration process and even detail how to get your hands on a free bet welcome bonus.

How to register

After doing the necessary research to choose a bookie that’s best for you, the next step is to create an account. You can do this in a few simple steps, and the process takes less than five minutes. You must register to an online bookie only once to gain your username and password that can be used to log in to your account from a smartphone or desktop anytime and from anywhere.

Follow the below steps to create an account with your chosen bookie as quickly and securely as possible. This process works on all major sportsbooks, websites and apps.

  • Visit the bookmaker’s homepage
  • Click the Join button at the top of the screen
  • Fill in the registration form, providing all necessary information
  • Create a memorable but secure username and password
  • Confirm your account

 

How to get a welcome bonus

The best bookies offer new customers a welcome bonus when they create an account. These promotions come in many different shapes and sizes, including free bets, risk-free bets, enhanced odds and cashback. The most popular in the industry at present is the deposit matched bet. With this deal, you are asked to create an account and make your first deposit, then bet on a sports fixture.

When that wager has been confirmed, you will receive a free bet equal in value to your first bet. For example, if you sign up and deposit $100, you’ll land a $100 free bet welcome bonus to use on the sports betting market of your choice. Options include NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, UFC and MLS. Each new bookie you join will reward you with a free bet, so it’s worth spreading your interest across different sites.

The welcome bonuses offered have terms and conditions attached, and it’s crucial you read these in full before accepting any offer. This may take a few minutes to complete, but doing so will ensure you have a strong understanding of how the promo works and what is expected of you when using it.

How to deposit using crypto

In the member’s area of your account, you will find a payments tab that includes deposit and withdrawal options. Click on the deposit link, then choose the method you wish to use to add funds to your betting account to gamble with. Some of the options you can expect to find include VISA, Mastercard, PayPal, Skrill and Neteller. You should also notice the Bitcoin box, which you should click to choose.

Enter details of your Bitcoin account to pair it with your online gambling account, and you can then transfer funds at the touch of a button. Deposits are made instantly and protected by the latest security options. This allows you to move funds effortlessly and with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you are protected.
