Ways to Deposit at Bovada

You would agree that if you had easier and more efficient ways to get yourself into the action, that would make you feel a lot better about choosing a particular sportsbook. 

Bovada knows that too. That is why they have gone out of their way to make it trouble-free for customers to open up their accounts and become active in the experience to be had at this unique gaming destination. 

No matter where you are located, you will find a way to get involved that is convenient for you. 

How to Deposit Bitcoin at Bovada

Let’s run down Bovada's deposit methods, all of which have proven to be very popular and without headaches: 

• Credit cards can be used. This means Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. This is a pretty fast payment method, and most people have one of these cards. Just so you're not surprised by it, there will be fees attached - they'll be upwards of 5.9%. However, Bovada will allow your first deposit using one of these cards to be free of fees. 

• Gift cards are good too. You can go to the store and buy a Visa and MasterCard gift card and apply that toward a deposit. This carries a fee as well, in the 3-5% range. This is a very convenient method as you can protect your financial details as well as your privacy (from outside parties, that is). 

• Voucher deposits can be used to make deposits in your Bovada account, and they do not come with any fees at all!

Customer Service Experience at Bovada

• Bitcoin is something more and more people are becoming aware of. It is, of course, a digital currency that is universal. It is not a "fiat" currency, which means that it is not controlled by any central governmental entity. That is where it has a lot of appeal to "libertarian" types. Where it applies to gaming-related transactions, there are other things that are appealing. For one thing, they foster the idea of confidentiality, which means that not only does anybody outside that sportsbook know who you are, but no one needs to know where you're from either. 

• Bitcoin Cash became something of a "splinter" currency derived from Bitcoin, which uses blockchain technology as well. It is said that Bitcoin Cash is ideal for e-commerce transactions, and in that case, it is very useful in the gaming world. 

Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash are known as "cryptocurrencies," which means they exist strictly in the digital world. Both of them facilitate transactions very quickly, and neither of these currencies carries with it any transaction fees. 

• ZellePay is an instant payment service that is operated by a consortium of banks. Through it, you can send payments to any party that has a bank account. Please check in your jurisdiction as to the availability of Zelle.

About the Author

Charles Jay is unlike most analysts associated with handicapping and the gaming industry, in that he also has had extensive experience in the so-called "mainstream" media as well.

He has been involved with professional sports industry for almost two decades, working in all capacities, as a matchmaker, booking agent, manager, and also as an editorial consultant on USA Network's "Tuesday Night Fights," which, for a time, carried "Charles Jay's Line" on upcoming fights. As a broadcaster, he has called world title fights around the world for various outlets, and has served as a color commentator for Sunshine Network and Prime Network.

His radio experience includes being the host of numerous programs, including "Sportswatch with Charles Jay" on KDWN in Las Vegas, "Total Action" on WAXY 790 in Miami, and "Charles Jay's Winning Edge", syndicated into 55 markets by the American Radio Networks, and he's done podcasts on all subjects related to sports, gaming and popular culture.

Working within the casino industry, he has a special events consultant for Casino Magic in Mississippi, as that venue established itself in the early 1990s as a hotbed of boxing activity in particular. Prior to this, he had been engaged as a casino gaming columnist for, among others, Casino Player, Card Player and Sports Form (now known as Gaming Today), specializing in blackjack. And later on, his investigative series on boxing, entitled "Operation Cleanup," won him much critical acclaim, including the 2003 "Dignity" Award, in the category of "Best Sports Writer," as bestowed by the Retired Boxers Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to rendering assistance to ex-fighters in need.

In 2006 he established a content services division of his company, which has eventually evolved in JayWords, and he is arguably the world's most prolific sports & gaming writer, with over 20,000 articles to his credit, the vast majority of which have been sports handicapping pieces. So you might say he has analyzed as many sporting events as anyone alive during this period. He has also brought some interest with his so-called "gimmick" odds on special events, including the Academy Awards, the NFL Draft, and the Super Bowl, for which he posted dozens and dozens of different odds propositions with various sportsbooks.
