Using Bitcoin Debit Cards to play Mega Moolah (Part 2)
Just like online gambling completely changed the way people play video slot machines, Bitcoin debit cards are changing the way people play Mega Moolah online.
Being able to make your online deposit via Bitcoin is already great all by itself. But when you add the advantage of being able to use a Bitcoin debit card, things get that much better.
In the first installment of this two-post series, we introduced you to 10 cryptocurrency debit cards you can use to fund your Mega Moolah play. This post will highlight an additional 10 cards.
A quick reminder about funding
Just a quick reminder about funding before we get on to the actual cards themselves. You can fund your Bitcoin Mega Moolah play in one of several different ways. This Bitcoin Casino allows you to directly push coins from your wallet to theirs. You could use an online payment service like Skrill or Neteller to convert your coins to fiat first. Or you can use Bitcoin debit cards.
The advantage of the debit card is that it makes the conversion on the fly. So even if you choose an online casino that does not directly accept Bitcoin deposits, you can still use your coins to play. With that out of the way, let us get to the reviews.
The first thing to know about FuzeX is that it is a whole lot more than just a Bitcoin debit card. It is a highly advanced, technological system for managing all of your digital assets in a piece of kit no bigger than a standard credit card. It has a ton of built-in technology including a rechargeable battery and e-paper display. It is linked to your mobile app and works when the card and mobile are connected.
FuzeX currently offers Classic and Prestige cards. A more basic Lite card is promised soon. The issuance fee for both existing cards is US$149. Unfortunately, the FuzeX website does not provide any details about ATM or transaction fees or any other information such as what countries are supported.
It is branded as an EFTPOS card, so it may not be as widely accepted as a Visa or MasterCard branded product. Also it appears the card is not actually available as of yet. The FuzeX Program has been recently approved by their issuer bank in U.S. and will be sharing the bank identification number. Now FuzeX will begin the process of actually launching the FuzeX card with the prepaid operator and bank. We assume FureX will be available to U.S. residents only.

Raxcard is a US-based company marketed as the "world's best web ATM money card." We aren't quite sure what that means, but the card does exactly what you expect in terms of prepaid debit card function. You can load it with digital assets using any supported ATM. You can also load it online.
A wallet is included, so pushing assets from another wallet into your Raxcard wallet should be simple enough. The card supports USD and EUR in terms of fiat, and just Bitcoin in the cryptocurrency space. It can be branded by either Visa or MasterCard.
There's actually three cards customers can choose from; Bitcoin ATM Card, Perfect Money Card, and/or the Webmoney Card. Each card has different characteristics. A user can have more than one card. For example the Bitcoin ATM Card has its own Bitcoin Wallet address that is printed on the back of the card. You can use this wallet address to send bitcoin to it and it will go into your card as your balance.
The issuance and delivery fee is US$50. ATM withdrawals incur a US$0.99 fee while domestic purchases are free of charge. International purchases are charged at a rate of US$1.00 per transaction.

For now, the TenX debit card supports only Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum. Support for more coins may come in the future. USD is the only fiat supported. It is branded by Visa, so it is usable anywhere in the world that Visa is accepted. The card converts from crypto to USD on-the-fly. A TenX app with 2-factor authentication enforced is likely a requirement to be able to use the card.
Issuance and delivery will cost you US$15. There is no monthly fee. The fee for ATM withdrawals is US$2.75 regardless of where you make a withdrawal. The good news is that there is no transaction fee. All of your purchases are free.

As you can clearly see from both posts in this two-post-series, there are plenty of options if you are looking to start using a cryptocurrency debit card. We recommend Bitcoin debit cards for playing Mega Moolah online because they allow you to make a crypto deposit even if the casino doesn't directly accept crypto. The cards are also great for other kinds of purchases too.
