How To Take Your Casino With You When You Travel

In a recent post on this site we talked about the popularity of casino travel tours.    As you might imagine what these are are (oftentimes) a package priced bus tour of the many casinos in a given geographic area.

These packages are priced for the budget minded and it makes sense that they are relatively inexpensive because you are traveling with a group of like minded people.

But what if you don’t feel like traveling with a crowd?

It wasn’t too long ago that internet casinos and poker rooms were such a threat (real or imagined) to these big money casinos that the operators of them were able to convince their buddies is high places (read government) to pass some laws and effectively get them outlawed in the USA (and some other countries – but not all by any means).

The Market Has Spoken

Most people have heard of Bitcoin and even Litecoin, but did you know that their are now over 100 different crytpocurrencies?  Now some of these “cryptos” won’t last a year – some won’t even last a month – but there are some (such as Bitcoin and Litecoin) that seem to be here to stay.  And many people are using them for transacting business outside the scope of the regular banking systems.

Anonymous Gambling Anywhere In The World

The online casino and poker room websites are catching on.  Some of them are now starting to accept bitcoin, litecoin, dogecoin, and other cryptocurrencies for gambling.  This is a boon for all of those people who were effectively shut out of online gambling after the now famous “black friday”, when the USA government shut down the big name operators.

What this means is that if one wants to learn how to gamble online anonymously (or on their smartphones) they will have to learn how to acquire and use cryptocurrencies responsibly and safely and not get scammed.  It is possible, and in a future post we will talk more about how to do this.
