funds are on hold 8 days because you did a bank transfer to buy. you can trade within coinbase but cannot send or WD. you need to hook a bank card onto your account for instant BTC use.
if you are not actively using bitcoin nowadays you are really messing up your ability to make and win money. it’s pretty much all I use now. it’s fast and easy and you can even make a profit when the coins go up in value.
I would have agreed with you 6 months ago but it seems like casinos have somehow gotten worse with dealing with bitcoin. It doesn't make sense how they would get worse with dealing with a technology over time. All kinds of delays, withdrawals often inaccurate, some sites wait 5 or 6 blockchain confirmations (like an hour) for a deposit while others are instant (I can understand waiting for a single confirmation, but 5 or 6 is absurd). For a few sites, if your deposit takes longer than around 15 minutes for a blockchain confirmation, if the price of bitcoin drops they reduce your deposit accordingly, but if it goes up they won't give you any extra - essentially freerolling you on the price fluctuations. I think slotocash does this but I can't say for 100% sure.
Granted, I haven't gambled much in the last couple months so in the off chance some of these casinos have picked up their game I may not have noticed.
And for the casinos that deal with it competently you are right that it can make transactions very simple - I think bovada/bodog group and 3dice seem to do reasonably with it from what i've seen. RTG and rival casinos are more of a gamble and it can be really annoying when they screw things up or you have to wait over an hour for a deposit. 5dimes wants you to give them literally every piece of personal information you have over the phone to get you your BTC withdrawal which i'm not really comfortable with - but I guess it's better than when they used to require you to give live chat agents your account password to get help.
