Switch Poker Becomes World’s First Online Operator To Offer Both Bitcoin and Real-Money Poker


Switch Poker, the mobile poker operator, has launched Bitcoin-only poker tables at the request of players.

The site, which launched Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals last year, has set up ฿0.01/฿0.02 NLH 6-max meaning it’s the world’s first site to host both real-money and Bitcoin poker games.

“We were listening and today we took a tentative step towards hosting Bitcoin only poker games.

“These tables are the equivalent of roughly €0.10/€0.20 NLH.”

Players can try out the new tables by depositing Bitcoins or converting Euro to Bitcoins in the account page at
