UPDATE: The promotion has ended now, so this will no longer work. I'll keep everything below in case I notice it going active again. But for now, don't bother since it's over.
First, I understand that $50 isn't much for lots of people on PreGame. That isn't even a quarter of 1 bet for some of the members here. However, if you're someone who is just getting into sports betting, working with a small bankroll or just want some free crypto, you might find this post helpful and worth a few minutes of your time. Please note: I have NO affiliation with this offer and I get absolutely nothing for you claiming it. I took advantage myself and decided to share because I thought it was something other members might also want to take advantage of. Also, I cannot say for sure when the offer will expire, so you might wanna check the link in Step 2 first in order to make sure the promotion page is still active. That being said, let's jump right in..
Below I'm going to show you a quick 3-step method for getting yourself $50 in completely FREE crypto currency. How does this translate into free betting money? Very simple, you convert the free coins into Bitcoin, and then make your deposit at the sportsbook. Best of all, this is all done in the same place and you're going to find that it's much easier then you may think - Even if you've never done a thing with crypto in your life!
There are a few qualifications you MUST meet to claim this..
A. You cannot have an existing account at Blockchain.com. If you do, you will not qualify.
B. You will need to take/submit a picture of you holding your drivers license in order to verify your identity. If you are not comfortable with that, skip this post.
C. This might not work if you live in a small country. Most members here are likely from the US, so this probably isn't much of an issue.
Here we go...
Step 1) Visit Blockchain.com and create your free account. Then, verify the email address. Note: Keep the verification email inside your inbox because it contains your Wallet ID (what you login with).
Step 2) Once your email is verified, visit the promotional page here: http://www.blockchain.com/getcrypto
Click the "Get your crypto" button and finish the steps to complete your profile. This is where you'll fill in your name, address and submit a picture of you holding your drivers license for verification.
Step 3) Now you wait for Blockchain. It can take anywhere from a few minutes up to 48 hours for them to review and place your free crypto (Stellar XLM) into your account. You'll receive email confirmation when it's arrived and it will be $50 (roughly 400 XLM coins). If for any reason you don't receive it after around 48 hours, contact them and explain you signed up and verified your account to claim the free crypto, but haven't received it. Mine took about 48 hours:
Congrats! You now have $50 in completely FREE cryptocurrency. That leaves you with 2 options: Convert it to Bitcoin and deposit into the Sportsbook, or leave it in there and hope the price of Stellar XLM goes up like a stock. You now own roughly 400 XLM coins, so if the price were to reach what Bitcoin is right now ($7.9K per 1 coin) then you'd have a nice little chunk of change there. We all know the odds of that happening probably aren't very high, but it's completely up to you! Those wanting to deposit and bet can continue reading for instructions on how to do that..
Step 1) The first step is to convert the Stellar XLM into Bitcoin. This can be done by logging into Blockchain and clicking the "Trade" button on the left hand side.
Step 2) After clicking Trade, select Stellar under "Swap" and Bitcoin under "Receive".. Enter the amount and Exchange it. Keep in mind, there will be a small fee so you'll lose a buck or two.
Steps 3) You've now converted your free Stellar into Bitcoin. Visit the sportsbook and initiate a deposit for Bitcoin (some books might even accept Stellar, in which case you don't even need to convert it over to Bitcoin). The casino will give you a bitcoin address to send to. Inside your Blockchain account, click Send at the top. Choose Bitcoin as the currency and enter the provided Bitcoin address and amount. Send it, then confirm you've sent it back inside the Sportsbook. You're all done - Just wait for the funds to appear inside your sportsbook account!
How can I double my money? That's simple..Try a new sportsbook with a 100% deposit bonus. Now you'll receive even more free money on top of the free money you're depositing with! Bovada & BetOnline both usually offer a 100% match on Bitcoin deposits, especially if it's your first.
How can I move this money from Blockchain to my bank? Blockchain doesn't allow you to add a bank account for withdrawals which means we need to add another step into the process. Create a new account at Coinbase.com. Once created, you will need to trade the XLM for Bitcoin inside Blockchain and then send the Bitcoin from your Blockchain account over to your Coinbase account. This would be done just as it would for sending the funds to the sportsbook, only you would enter your Coinbase Bitcoin address into Blockchain instead of the books. You'll be able to add a bank account (or PayPal account) inside Coinbase and can then transfer the funds from Coinbase into your bank or PayPal account. NOTE: You should always deposit/withdraw funds from the sportsbook into your Blockchain account and not Coinbase. Coinbase has been known to suspend/terminate accounts if they see they are being used for online gambling. Blockchain adds a layer between that. It does add an extra fee, but I would always recommend doing anything related to bank/paypal via Coinbase, and anything related to sportsbook/gambling via Blockchain. It will protect your Coinbase account!
That about sums everything up. If you have any questions post them here or message me and I'll be happy to try and help. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
