A Common Question – How To Get Bitcoins?

June 24th, 2017

How to get bitcoins? For good reason, this is one of the top questions asked in Google. Everybody wants to get on the wave and own some bitcoin of their own. And using bitcoin for purchases is getting increasingly easier and easier. So let us tell you how to get bitcoins?

Bitcoin was invented with the online casinos in mind. It solves the issue of funding gaming accounts 100% and is actually very easy to use once you get over the learning curve. While it seems very technical (it certainly is), it’s not as difficult as you might think.

As we described in our previous blog post about Superior being a bitcoin casino (read it – it explains everything you need to know about depositing and withdrawing with bitcoin at Superior Casino), you have to first find a way to convert your fiat funds (USD, Euro, GBP,etc) into bitcoin. We show you how to set up a wallet at an exchange and then open a spend wallet to transfer funds in and out of the casino. But, there are other ways of acquiring bitcoin than through an exchange.

Here are a few other ways we answer the question – How to get bitcoins?:

Indacoin – Our top pick is Indacoin. It’s a really easy way to get bitcoin using your credit or debit card. You just need to be sure you have a bitcoin wallet already. As previously pointed out, you should have a wallet at Blockchain.info already. With Indacoin you just make the bitcoin purchase directly from them and they will send it right to your Blockchain.info wallet directly. Be sure you enter your correct phone number as a representative from Indacoin will contact you to confirm the account with a three-digit pin. This is a one-time process. Also be aware that the exchange rate at Indacoin is not the best. So plan on buying at least $50 worth of bitcoin to reach the minimum deposit at Superior Casino. Don’t worry, though. We’ll add enough extra bonus to your account to cover the higher exchange rate.

Local Bitcoins – Local Bitcoins connects you with other people who are ready to sell you bitcoin that they have and are willing to arrange private transaction methods between the two parties. It is safe because Local Bitcoins acts as an escrow service, making sure both parties have fully committed to the deal before processing the transaction. The seller is able to set their own price and many of them will take bank transfers or even transfers from other wallets, such as Paypal. You can sometimes find good deals on exchange rates and the fees are next to nothing. You will have to prove to the seller that you are who you say you are, so be ready to upload an image of you holding your ID and, in some cases a screenshot of your online banking page (be sure you don’t expose your account number or any other compromising info. Just your full name that matches your ID.

Paxful – Paxful is a unique peer to peer exchange network that allows you to use Gift Cards from hundreds of online and offline merchants, such as Victorias Secret, Walmart, Itunes, Amazon, and Xbox. The seller sets the the cash amount on the dollar and the transaction is held in escrow until completed. Getting bitcoin from sellers on Paxful can be expensive, but if you have a balance sitting around on a gift card, why not get rid of it and acquire some bitcoin.

Superior Casino is now a Bitcoin Casino

December 9th, 2016

Superior Casino is A Bitcoin Casino. We are happy to announce that we accept bitcoin for deposit and cash outs.

Bitcoin is a digital currency that can be transferred between parties with no centralized clearing house (bank) which means lower fees. In fact the fees for a typical transfer of bitcoin are measured in cents, not dollars. There are fees associated with exchanging real world money for bitcoin, so keep that in mind. But generally speaking, they are no more than typical credit card fees.

Before you make a bitcoin casino deposit, you will need to make an account with a bitcoin exchange and set up a bitcoin wallet. Like most other wallet currencies, you need to fund the wallet before you can use it. In this case you are actually buying bitcoin that can be used at Superior Casino or any other vendor that accepts bitcoin.

In order to safeguard your bitcoins, you should have at least two bitcoin wallets – one at an exchange and one to use as a spend wallet. See the details below.

If you are a US customer, we recommend using Coinbase at www.Coinbase.com or Kraken at Kraken.com as your exchange wallet.

To safeguard your exchange account you should also set up a spend wallet at Blockchain.info. This is the wallet you will use to send your bitcoin to SuperiorCasino.com.

If you are in Europe we recommend www.Cubits.com.

Using an intermediate bitcoin wallet is the only way to assure that your bitcoin deposit will get to your SuperiorCasino.com account.

Making an account and adding a payment method at either of these exchange wallets is easy. You can immediately link your Coinbase account to a Debit/Credit Card to use for smaller amounts. There is also the option to link your Coinbase wallet to your checking or savings account, which is recommended so you can exchange bitcoin you win at Superior into hard currency and move it instantly to your bank account. Cubits has many options available for exchanging hard currency to bitcoin, as well.

Once you go through the wallet setup process, bitcoin is one of the easiest methods of deposit and withdrawal available! Just be sure you send to the correct addresses as bitcoin transactions are not reversible.
