How to play Mega Moolah with Bitcoin Cash
So, you're a big fan of the Mega Moolah jackpot slot as well as crypto. We get it. We are fans as well, which is why we are proud to announce the introduction of Bitcoin Cash as a payment method!
In light of our two passions we thought it might be interesting to publish a series of articles explaining how to play Mega Moolah using some of the most popular cryptocurrencies out there. This post will begin the series by explaining how to play using Bitcoin Cash. Future posts will discuss Litecoin, XRP, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, and 0X.
There are two ways to play Mega Moolah with Bitcoin cash as your currency of deposit. The first is to deposit coins directly. The second is to use an exchange service or digital wallet as an intermediary. Both will be discussed here.
Depositing Bitcoin Cash directly
It's been said that most people, given the opportunity, will take the path of least resistance. That is certainly true when it comes to online gambling. If there is an easy way to do it, that is the way most people will choose. And that brings us to the first option of depositing Bitcoin Cash (BCH) directly with your chosen casino.
The trick is finding an online casino that offers both Mega Moolah and cryptocurrency deposits. It used to be nearly impossible until recently. The times they are a changin' and as any business you have to adapt, or go away.
Today casino operators are no longer tied to one single casino game provider. Thanks to Application Programming Interface (API) technology, among other technological advancements, casinos can now host games from multiple providers and offer multiple banking options.
Today there are two types of casinos that accept cryptocurrency deposits. One is where they accept cryptocurrency deposits and withdrawals from wallet-to-wallet, meaning there's no middle man like a bank or e-wallet service taking a cut, and the other is using an e-wallet service such as Skrill where you can easily convert your Bitcoin Cash into pounds, euros or dollars, etc, and then deposit into the casino. Providing you already have an account with a compatible e-wallet service, both methods make a deposit a snap.
Have a look at the below deposit fee table and compare a BCH deposit to any of the credit card or bank transfer methods. Which one is the best?
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum Deposit||Maximum Deposit|
|Visa||2.50%||Instant||Min. €20||Max. €4,000|
|MasterCard||2.50%||Instant||Min. €20||Max. €4,000|
|Skrill||2.50%||Instant||Min. €20||Max. €4,000|
|Neteller||2.50%||Instant||Min. €20||Max. €4,000|
|Bitcoin Cash||Free||Instant||Min. 0.001 BCH||No Max|
|Bank Transfer||Free||1-3 banking days||Min. €20||Max. €4,000|
|View all options|
Of course you do need a BCH wallet and not many people do. However if you are interested in a BCH wallet then head on over to the Blockchain.com website and change the way you play.
Sign up, make a transfer
In this example we'll use the wallet-to-wallet method cutting out the middle man. Of course the first step is to find a casino that accepts direct BCH deposits and withdrawals - but don't fret as we've done the hard part for you, and you even get a little extra gift just for signing up through MegaMoolah.com!
The good thing is that most casinos nowadays make registration easy with a short online form you can complete and submit in under a minute. Once you have registered and received your welcome email, login to the casino and navigate to the banking section of the site. Then look through the deposit options until you find Bitcoin Cash.
Once you select that choice, you will be prompted to complete a transfer from your digital wallet into the casino's wallet. You do this in the same way you would conduct any other BCH transaction. Just enter the required information and submit it; you will then be pushing coin from your wallet to the casino. The transaction should verify and show up in your gambling account within seconds.
You can start playing as soon as you see your bankroll funded. But wait, there may be something else for you to do. You will have access to certain welcome bonus and that little gift I mentioned earlier.
Claim your Welcome Bonus
Claiming a bonus can sometimes be tricky in terms of understanding the bonus and time limits that may apply. Some casinos give you one week to claim a bonus from your registration. Some casinos that offer, say, Free Spins may require for you to play at least a minimum deposit amount before claiming those Free Spins. Some casinos activate welcome bonuses automatically, others require that you specifically request them usually through the chat support function on their websites. Always check the terms so that you get the full bonus credited to your account as that will give you extra fuel to go for the Mega Moolah jackpot!
Talking about the BCH bonus... see the below table and compare the huge BCH bonus to the smaller Euro bonus. This is quite common throughout cryptocurrency casinos and perhaps another reason to change the way you play.
|Currency||1st Deposit Bonus||2nd Deposit Bonus||3rd Deposit Bonus||4th Deposit Bonus|
|BCH||100% up to 5 BCH||50% up to 5 BCH||50% up to 10 BCH||100% up to 5 BCH|
|EUR||100% up to €100||50% up to €100||50% up to €200||100% up to €100|
You can get a 25 BCH bonus, which currently equals to just under 2,900 EUR, or if you play with Euros, you can get a max 500 EUR bonus. That's a big difference, in fact playing with BCH you get nearly a 6x greater bonus than playing with Euros!
Whichever currency you choose (and there are certainly many other currencies also available) you are eligible for the gift I mentioned. This is a special gift on the house and to claim it you only need to register.
Get 20 no deposit required free spins on the popular Wolf Gold slot, which recently received a four out of five star rating on Surewinner.com. So the entire bonus is as per the above 'BCH vs EUR Bonus' table, plus 20 no deposit required Free Spins just for signing up, plus 180 additional Free Spins after you make your first deposit of at just 0.02 BCH, or 20 EUR.
More details of this offer is available here. Use the currency toggle at top right of the screen and change to BCH or EUR.
What about using Skrill or Neteller?
Now that you know the easy way to play Mega Moolah with Bitcoin Cash, let us talk about the more roundabout way. This second method is necessary because there are some casinos out there that don't accept direct cryptocurrency deposits. Not to worry as there is a reliable workaround.
That workaround is using an e-wallet service. One of our favourites is Skrill, so we'll use it as an example. You can also read our article How to use Skrill and crypto to play Mega Moolah.
Skrill allows you to buy and sell seven different cryptocurrencies as long as you have an account with them. They also support 40 fiat currencies as well. Please note that all of the Mega Moolah casinos accept Skrill and you can use the service as a roundabout way of playing Mega Moolah with Bitcoin Cash.
The first step is to open a Skrill.com account. From there, you have two options. The first option is to transfer coins you already own from your digital wallet into your Skrill account. That shouldn't be a problem for you as a cryptocurrency user with plenty of experience.
Your second option is to buy BCH from your Skrill account. How do you do that? By funding your Skrill account with fiat. You can fund it with a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer, then you can use the funds to purchase BCH. You can purchase other coins too.
Making your casino deposit with Skrill or Neteller
Okay, so you've opened up a Skrill account and funded it with BCH. Now what? Click on the green Play Now button at top right of this screen, or visit the Where to Play page and select any of the Mega Moolah offers. Then simply create an account and then navigate to the banking section. Choose Skrill as your preferred payment and then follow the online instructions. Note that Skrill will cut into your deposit with a small fee, which is currently 2.50 percent.
You will need to complete a short online form that includes information about your Skrill account. Clicking the 'Submit' button will facilitate the transfer from Skrill to the online casino. Note that you may have to wait a minute or two if internet traffic is heavy. At any rate, you'll be ready to start playing Mega Moolah as soon as your casino account reflects the deposit. Be sure to check out any bonuses you are eligible for prior to commencing play.
About Bitcoin Cash
You now know the two methods for playing Mega Moolah with Bitcoin Cash. The current state of cryptocurrency technology is such that it continues to get easier to spend your digital coins with every passing day. On that happy note, let's talk a little bit about Bitcoin Cash.
Bitcoin Cash has a name similar to Bitcoin because it came about as a direct result of a hard fork of Bitcoin. What is a hard fork?
Bitcoin was the original blockchain monetary system that started it all. Not long after the blockchain and coins were released to the public, it became apparent that the length of Bitcoin's blockchain would eventually get so big that it would be difficult to manage. Concerns about blockchain length came to fruition a few years after the original release when transaction times were slowed to a snail's pace.
A number of developers within the Bitcoin universe wanted to solve the problem by increasing Bitcoin's block size limit. They wanted to do this with a code change, something that others in the community were against. Being unable to reach consensus led the pro-change group to split off with a hard fork.
They took a copy of the existing Bitcoin ledger as it was at that time, made the code change, and then continued on from there. This created a hard fork that was identical to Bitcoin's blockchain from inception to the point of the fork, at which point it moved in a separate direction with the larger block size limit.

BCH is a respected cryptocurrency
The history of Bitcoin Cash aside, the cryptocurrency itself is a respected cryptocurrency among both traders and investors. It is no surprise that gambling sites willing to deal in cryptocurrency are likely to accept BCH. They can take BCH deposits without worrying that the coins will be worthless a week from now. The same cannot be said for some other cryptocurrencies out there.
If you are a big fan of Mega Moolah and you want to play using your Bitcoin Cash holdings, there are two options for doing so. Make a direct BCH transfer at this casino or run your coins through a service like Skrill and play at any of the casinos on MegaMoolah.com. You will achieve the same result either way.
Remember, Mega Moolah give everyone who plays an equal shot at winning a jackpot. Who knows. Your investment in Bitcoin Cash could really pay off at the casino.
