Warning & Disclosure
While this page provides valuable information for anyone looking to play at a casino anonymously, it must come with its warnings. Betting may be illegal in your jurisdiction; for instance, a casino which accepts players from the United States may be doing so illegally. Casinos which operate illegally may be shut down, and your funds could be lost as a result. It must also be noted that cryptocurrencies provide great financial freedom, and with that comes responsibility. Without a middleman to place restrictions on betting, or a casino responsibly warning players of their losses, it is possible to lose heavily at an unregulated anonymous casino. Gambling responsibly is even more important in the land of crypto.
Truly anonymous betting
It is possible to bet online without any personal information being revealed to the casino. It is also possible to assume anonymity when in fact there is none. Anonymity comes in two forms:
No registration required
Casinos which do not require registration are the most anonymous option for anyone looking to bet in private. These casinos will create an account for a player on arrival at the website, providing them with a secure private key (often stored as a unique web address) to allow players and their balances to be identified without the need for even a username. Very few casinos provide an entire lack of registration, most will require a username and email address; both types of casino are listed on this page.

Choice of cryptocurrency
The mainstream media have done an excellent job of misleading the public into thinking Bitcoin is an anonymous cryptocurrency. Bitcoin – thanks to its transparent ledger – reveals a paper trail for every “unspent transaction output” (UTXO) and as such has been an excellent tool for identifying users on the blockchain. While Bitcoin transactions carry no personal information, corroborating a transaction with the counterparty (merchant, individual etc) can uncover a wealth of information. Bitcoin can be used anonymously; users must generate a new address for every payment received, and send transactions from an address with no history. Many wallet providers will implement this anonymous functionality on the user’s behalf, however the wallet providers themselves may become compromised.
So instead, many users looking to gamble anonymously choose to use a privacy coin like Monero. Monero employs a “Ring Confidential Transactions” (RingCT) protocol for all of their transactions, providing a level of anonymity that supersedes any other privacy protocol in this space. RingCT removes payment details from the blockchain and the automatic generation of a unique one-time address for each transaction ensures privacy.
This page makes a distinction between anonymous Bitcoin casinos and anonymous Monero casinos, allowing you to make the decision as to which currency you prefer. Choosing to combine a private cryptocurrency with a casino that requires very little personal information will maximize the level of anonymity possible.
