Today we are happy to become the first real money poker site to accept Bitcoin as a payment method.
What is Bitcoin?
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer currency which allow payments to be sent directly to another person without the need for an intermediate party such as a bank.
Why would you use Bitcoin to deposit at Switch Poker?

- Enter the amount that you would like to deposit
- You will be directed to a BITCOIN 24/7 website. If you have a BITCOIN 24/7 account you can log in and make the payment. Alternatively you should send your Bitcoin payment to the address shown.
