Use Bitcoin and Litecoin at Springbok Online Casino South Africa and enjoy endless benefits, including crypto bonuses!

Springbok Casino is the leading online casino South Africa that offers a variety of payment options for its players, including cryptocurrencies. In this article, we will explain what cryptocurrencies are, what cryptocurrencies are available at Springbok Casino, how crypto transactions work, how to get cryptocurrencies, the benefits – and why you should use them at our online casino South Africa.

What Are Cryptocurrencies?

Cryptocurrencies are a type of digital currency that you can use for online transactions, wherever they are supported. Cryptocurrencies are not issued by a government or central bank, unlike traditional currencies like ZAR or USD. Instead, they are created and managed by a network of computers that follow a set of rules and algorithms. These computers are called nodes, and they keep a record of all cryptocurrency transactions on a shared ledger called a blockchain.

Now, a blockchain is a chain of blocks that contain information about each transaction, such as the amount, the sender, the receiver, and the time. Each block is linked to the previous block by a cryptographic code called a hash. This makes it very difficult to alter or tamper with the blockchain, as any change would invalidate the hash and break the chain.

The blockchain is public and transparent, meaning anyone can view it and verify its accuracy. It does not, however, reveal the real identities of the users behind each transaction. Instead, it uses pseudonyms called addresses, which are strings of numbers and letters that look like this: 1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2 (an example of a Bitcoin address).

An address is like a digital wallet that can store and send cryptocurrencies. Users can create as many addresses as they want and use different ones for different transactions. This way, cryptocurrencies provide a degree of anonymity and privacy when used at casinos for online gambling. Players don’t have to disclose personal or financial information or worry about third parties accessing or interfering with funds or transactions.

What Cryptocurrencies Are Available at Springbok Casino?

Springbok Online Casino accepts two popular cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin and Litecoin. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to be introduced to the world and it’s still the most widely used. It hit the market in 2009 and was created by an anonymous person – or group – using the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin’s overall supply is limited to 21 million coins, making it scarce and valuable.

Litecoin too has become a widespread cryptocurrency created by Charlie Lee, a former Google engineer, in 2011. It is similar to Bitcoin in many ways, but it has some differences. For example, Litecoin has a faster transaction speed than Bitcoin (2.5 minutes vs 10 minutes), a larger supply of 84 million coins, and a different hashing algorithm (Scrypt vs SHA-256).

At Springbok online casino South Africa we offer both Bitcoin and Litecoin as deposit options for our players and you can choose either one at our online casino cashier. To do so, you will need to have a cryptocurrency wallet that supports the chosen currency – and scan or copy our address to send your funds. The minimum deposit amount for both cryptocurrencies is R25.

We also offer Bitcoin as a withdrawal method for our players who want to cash out winnings in cryptocurrency. You will need to provide your Bitcoin address and confirm your request and the minimum withdrawal amount for Bitcoin is R500.

How Crypto Transactions Work

Crypto transactions work differently from traditional payment methods at casinos for online gambling such as credit cards, bank transfers or e-wallets. Crypto transactions are direct peer-to-peer transfers between users without any intermediaries involved. This means transactions are faster, cheaper, and more secure than other payment methods.

To transact at Springbok Online Casino using crypto, you need to follow these steps:

  • Choose your preferred cryptocurrency (Bitcoin or Litecoin) as your payment option at our online casino South Africa.
  • Open your Bitcoin or Litecoin wallet and choose the ‘send’ option.
  • Scan or copy our address and paste it into your wallet.
  • Type in the amount you wish to deposit or withdraw via your Springbok account and confirm the transaction from your end.
  • Wait for the transaction to be verified and confirmed by the network.
  • Check your balance and enjoy playing at Springbok Casino.

Crypto transactions at our online casino South Africa usually take a few minutes to be completed – depending on the network congestion and the transaction fee. The transaction fee is a small amount of cryptocurrency that you pay to the miners for processing your transaction. The higher the fee, the faster your transaction will be confirmed – but you can choose the fee level according to your preference and urgency.


How to Get Your Hands on Cryptocurrencies

If you want to use cryptocurrencies at a casino when online gambling, but you do not have any, you’d need to purchase from an exchange or a platform that sells cryptocurrencies. There are many options available for South African users, such as Luno, Binance, Easy Crypto or HedgewithCrypto. Through these platforms you can buy cryptocurrencies with ZAR or other fiat currencies using various payment methods, such as credit cards, EFTs, or e-wallets.

To buy cryptocurrencies from an exchange or a platform, you generally need to complete the following steps:

  • Register for an account on the exchange or platform of your choice and verify your identity and address.
  • Choose the cryptocurrency you want to buy (Bitcoin or Litecoin) and the amount you want to spend.
  • Select your preferred method of payment and enter the associated details.
  • Confirm your crypto purchase and wait for the transaction to finalise.
  • Transfer your cryptocurrency to your wallet and use it at Springbok Casino.

Buying cryptocurrencies from an exchange or a platform may involve some fees and charges, such as transaction fees, service fees or conversion fees. These fees may vary depending on the exchange or platform, the payment method, and the market conditions. You should compare different options and choose the one that suits your needs and budget.
