With playing mobile poker becoming increasingly difficult for American players due to strict government regulations with the aim of cracking down on illegal gambling, which in turn has discouraged many American online casinos from offering mobile poker games, there is a glimmer of hope in the form of Bitcoin. As Bitcoin continues to grow in popularity in countries that have tight regulations with regards to mobile poker, such as Russia, and Australia, players can utilize this universal digital currency to fund their online gambling habits, in lieu of the currencies that have restrictions, with regards to mobile poker. Bitcoin entered the online poker scene with Seals Of Clubs, the very first Bitcoin poker section, which was not dependent on American banks for its deposits and withdrawals. At this moment, mobile poker afficionados can play for real money using Bitcoin at Nitrogen Sports. Players here have the option of playing multi table poker on their mobile devices as well as tournaments. Later this year, the American online casinos, Cardroom and BetOnline, will release their mobile poker packages that can be enjoyed on Iphones, Androids and other popular mobile devices. In addition to accepting traditional banking options, they will also offer Bitcoin as a banking option to negate the restrictions from legislators.
