Heritage Now Accepting Bitcoin For Deposits And Withdrawals 1,161 views

I have committed to only betting with bitcoin moving forward so I went on to Heritage to withdraw everything and low and behold I see that I can now use bitcoin. Awesome! I can get 5Dimes & Heritage as well as my favorite bitcoin book Nitrogen Sports. Things are looking up!

Heritage is one of my best books. Never had an issue with them that wasn't resolved quickly and to my satisfaction.

I agree Slick. They have always been top notch to me.

I wish they would get rid of the cash back and just offer better lines but o-well.

If you are able to constantly monitor lines, they overreact to line moves by other books and hang a bad line on the regular.

Just curious: does Nitrogen sync exactly with Pinnacle lines (with different juice)?

@evo from what I can tell they (Nitrogen) follow pinny almost exactly. With football they seem to add 1 cent to the juiced side early and will match pinny closer to game time. It sure is nice getting 5-6 cent sides this early in the week.

Eh... I can see why you say that Slick but it's really not that bad. Open up an account at Circle.com and deposit $10 and play around with it for a little while. Once you get used to it I am sure you will find it the perfect way to transfer money for gambling.

Bitcoin scares the shit out of me too. I could deal with playing around with a couple $100 using bitcoin; no risk in that. But I would be a bit paranoid dealing with multiple $1000's. I could see myself checking my Bitcoin balance every hour to see if was still there.

For sportsbetting purposes couldn't one just put a K in immediately put it into 5dimes as USD cash out their winnings to bitcoin then immediately transfer it to USD in their bank account, with very little risk?

I think with sites like 5Dimes and Heritage if you put bitcoin in you have to take bitcoin out although I could be wrong. I know Heritage charges around $50 for a check withdrawal and it looks like bitcoin is free.

This is why I prefer the method of Bank account -> Circle -> Nitrogen Sports and back the other way for withdrawals. Each transfer in and out of the sportsbooks takes literally seconds. I think people would be amazed how fast it is. Even faster then 10+ years ago in the golden age with Netteller. Best of all I keep my balance at the books low and transfer in only what I need to place a bet. No more keeping $1,000's at a book wondering if the feds are going to sieze it all (Full tilt, Poker Stars, Legends Sportsbook, etc.)

@Sports Trader

I understand that is the common consensus as there is no 1-800-BITCOIN number to call is something goes wrong. It's defiantly an exercise in personal responsibility and at this point in the game is not for everyone, one day down the road it will be. If you are scared of someone stealing bitcoin you should know that using strong passwords with 2 factor authentication is generally more then enough to secure your stash.

Once you start getting into the 1000's and life altering amounts you have to change the way you approach bitcoin. You don't keep all your bitcoin with one address, use things like cold storage for most of it and a "hot wallet" for your weekly expenses. On services like Circle.com you can set withdrawal limits which I have set at $50. This way anytime I want to transfer out more then $50 Circle sends me a text code that I have to input for the transaction to proceed. Unless someone has your cellphone and a gun to your head it's fairly unlikely anyone will be able to drain your account.

Still have a local guy. He misses me. The problem is every local I have ever had runs -110 lines which cant compete with a 5 dimes or Heritage. That extra juice really eats away at you in the downswings. This latest guy uses a PPH clone of CRIS/Bookmaker which I find horribly difficult to beat.

No better feeling then to meet up with him on Friday and get a nice stack... of course there has been plenty of days I had to hand over a thick stack as well.

They haven't accepted new players for quite some time but if you already had an account then you're in.
2

I got in after they locked everything down. I cant remember exactly how but I think I had to create an account over at the RX, post a few things and then "apply" or use an affiliate link or something. My guess is if someone vouched for someone else they could get in. There is ways to get in it's just more difficult.

They really are a great book.

2
I just called and they said no new American signups at this time. I asked is there a way to signup through an affiliate and he said not now, maybe soon.
2
Yeah I checked RX and all their links disappeared. RX was the only way I knew how. Years ago you could do it through SBR but that's been gone for a while
