The Power of Crypto at Ignition Casino

As the world becomes more unified, the need for a global digital currency becomes increasingly demanding. Converting currencies is costly and inefficient, and most people would rather eliminate that step altogether. Bitcoin was invented in 2009 as a potential solution for the pitfalls that come with traditional government-backed currencies. This de-centralized peer-to-peer cryptocurrency makes sending money anywhere in the world cheaper and easier than what’s possible through financial institutions, and the benefits don’t end there. 

Using bitcoin to deposit funds into your Ignition Casino account opens up a new world of possibilities. All of a sudden, you get access to more generous crypto promotions, faster deposits and withdrawals, and the lowest fees possible. Crypto is quickly becoming a highly sought-after deposit method for people keen to get the best experience possible at an online crypto casino such as Ignition. 

In this article, we’ll go over the various ways that using crypto will take your casino gaming from good to great, and by the end, if you’re still unsure about getting started with bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, we’ll direct you to our Bitcoin Help page for further instructions on deposits, withdrawals, limits, fees and general inquiries.  

The Easiest Deposits

A crypto deposit is by far the easiest type of deposit you can make at Ignition Casino. For one, it doesn’t have the same purchasing restrictions that make processing credit card deposits so challenging. Secondly, when you deposit with crypto, you’re allowed to make smaller and larger deposits than what’s allowed with a standard credit card. For instance, you can deposit as little as $10 and as much as $5,000 when using crypto vs. a $20 minimum and $1,000 maximum range when depositing with credit card. 

As soon as you deposit cryptocurrency into your account, the currency is changed to USD, with no conversion fee. That way, if the value of bitcoin increases or decreases, it won’t affect the funds sitting in your Ignition account. 

The Fastest Payouts

Quick payouts are what we all look for when we hit a jackpot in an online casino, but up until cryptocurrencies became a withdrawal option, speedy turnaround times weren’t really possible. Having funds delivered as a check by a courier service is the standard withdrawal option, despite taking 10 to 15 business days to receive the check. The option for a wire transfer is sometimes available, but can still take up to a week to go through.  

Using crypto as a withdrawal option instead of a check reduces the wait time from 2-3 weeks to roughly 15 minutes once the withdrawal is approved. Then you can take it to an online exchange platform and have it converted to any currency you want. There’s no faster way to get your money than with crypto. 

The Best Bonuses

It’s no secret that the fastest way to a big bankroll is to take advantage of every bonus on the market, and the absolute best ones are the crypto casino bonuses. Our popular crypto Poker & Casino welcome bonus gives you up to $3000 when you make your first deposit with crypto.

While the $3,000 welcome bonus can be used just once, the weekly boost promo rewards players every week. Whether it's cash or reload bonuses, free spins, tournament tickets or more, check the Rewards section of your account to see what's in store for you.

If these bonuses sound good to you, they may also sound appealing to your friends too. Our Tell a Friend referral program gives you a 200% match bonus, based on your friend’s first deposit, for up to $100 in bonus money. An extra $25 is up for grabs any time the first deposit is done with an accepted cryptocurrency. 

The best approach for getting maximum impact for your bitcoin or crypto deposits is to start with the meaty welcome bonus and then use the weekly boost for subsequent deposits. Keep in mind both bonuses come with playthrough requirements that must be met before the bonus money, and any money won from the bonus money, can be withdrawn from your account.

The Tightest Security

Security is top of mind when people begin considering crypto for online transactions; after all, with no physical money, how is it tracked? One reason crypto transactions are so secure is because of their publicly accessible network, called the blockchain. Since it’s a peer-to-peer network, nothing is done behind closed doors; all transactions are recorded on a public ledger, so there’s no chance of a misuse of funds. Once a bitcoin transaction is completed, it’s irreversible. 

Even though the ledger is public, you won’t be able to see people’s names or personal information listed on it. Instead you’ll see a digital signature (that only the buyer would know) along with the cryptocurrency addresses of the sender and receiver with every transaction, ensuring both privacy and transparency on the blockchain. 

As an extra security measure, crypto is sent and received from a digital wallet that is downloaded as an app onto a person’s smartphone (both Android and iOS have options). Only the holder of the smartphone can access the wallet, which requires an additional password in order to be accessed. 

The Most Casino Games

Enjoy our full range of casino games when you deposit with crypto at Ignition. Hundreds of video slots with a wide range of themes are available along with table game classics like blackjack, baccarat, roulette and craps—to name a few. If video poker is your preference, there are 17 different types that can be played for real money payouts, including wild card games with juicy jackpots, such as Joker Poker. Browse around; everything you see on the site is available for real money payouts—even when you deposit with bitcoin. Free trials are also available through Practice Play mode. 

The Lowest Fees

Keeping fees down to a minimum is part of any shrewd online casino strategy, and the best way to do that is with bitcoin (Bitcoin Cash has even lower fees). We charge nothing for cryptocurrency deposits and withdrawals, but you can expect to pay a nominal fee that goes to the bitcoin miner who adds your transaction to the blockchain. This won’t come close to the exorbitant fees that can sometimes come with credit card deposits. Whether it be cash advance fees or currency exchange fees, credit card companies find ways to tack on extra fees, which is why switching to bitcoin will help save you money right away. 

Although these are the top reasons people switch to crypto at Ignition, there are more ways to benefit when you bet with crypto in our online casino.
