So my father and I both play at a few casinos, he though is not a btc guy by any stretch of the imagination and I'm barely one to use it.. However I do occasionally use it with for withdrawals. My question is this, when sending a cash out to a wallet does it matter the actual address of the btc wallet??

Now the one thing is him and I have the same name.. Or is the address specifically tied to an account ? I don't use it enough to know. But it's just the check is so expensive with their cash out so I said let's use my btc account, but I stopped to think if btc accounts are tied to an account or if when you withdraw it can go to any valid address.

A bitcoin address isn't tied to any one individual, but I think the question becomes how casinos would perceive two people using the same address. I don't know the answer to that, but I would probably try to use a different address just in case. Most wallets or services it should be pretty easy to generate a new address to use - technically it's recommended to use a new address for every transaction, I think mainly for privacy.

Yea that's the thing I'm just not savvy enough with it to know exactly how to generate different addresses and what not. I was hoping that a long as they see the same then Itd be fine.

I can make him an account I suppose and just use that.. I can't recall if I've asked this but does blockchain let a person send any cashouts from a casino then straight to one's bank account ?

Assuming that means you're using a blockchain wallet: I'm not familiar with how blockchain sets up their interface, might take a couple minutes looking through menu's to find something that looks like it says "add new address" or "generate new address" or an option to view addresses - something like that.

Quick search brought this up, maybe it will help:

I have no idea if they'd give you any problems cashing out directly from a casino through their service, maybe someone else can chime in if they've tried blockchain for this. I know people used to use blockchain as an intermediate and then sell through a service like coinbase - but that was before blockchain added their own internal buy/sell. Worst case scenario blockchain will probably just close your account or disable conversion between $ and bitcoin. I'd say 95% chance it's fine though.

You shall us ea different one every time .The wallet has an ability to create unlimited amount of addresses so I don't think it will be an issue to use the same account as long as you monitor what address is created for you and what you create for your father :)
