If you have 1600 BTC (a little over 1 million dollar), how would  you bet?

1btc per game.. thats the only amount i can bet in a game nothing more nothing less.
Cause im too nervous when it comes to big bets.

'Change to fiat and hope it goes up'
Why would I change it to $ and then hope to go up?

Because you don't know what will happen to the Bitcoin price in the future and if the price theoretically goes down you will end up losing money in the end. Plus if you have exchanged the coins into cash and put that into a savings account you will have enough money every month to buy yourself a new car with 0 effort. Just saying   Wink

I would play dice with 100 BTC and keep that as the limit and i wouldn't use it all at once.
I see no reason to gamble it all since gambling will make you lose it all in the end, that would be such a waste.

I get so nervous I start shaking and I don't know that I can handle it that is why I would never gamble so much I would be too afraid I lose it all just trying to get a small profit and end up losing a small fortune just for 1btc when i have 1600btc xP

I'm not much of a blackjack, sportsbook person, and although I do like roulette, I would probably just play on the slots (with progressive jackpots)-- pick the second denominator available and max bet


I'm usually fine going up 1.5-2x what I started with, so even if I put it 1btc, go down to .25btc, then came back up to 1.4 btc, I would still withdraw and be happy.

Sports bets - 20 (60.6%)
Nice to see my pick is the common sense here. Sports bets require knowledge, it's not based on pure luck. I don't think anybody who have brain pick slot games or other casino tricks which take all your money.

I'm better doing big bet on poker because if you can conquer the game , you can win big ( poker mostly based on skill of bluffing )
Sport betting can be another option too especially if you have expert analyze important match statistic

Right now after my big loss in poker , i wont be trying to play in poker , ya but i will put 400btc in poker and balance 1200 btc in sports betting and daily i will be winning 10% and will shut for that day and enjoy the balance time. This is what i have got experienced that how much time you give for gambling or betting , that much time you will be in loss in the end.

By my new strategy i will be in profit in long term.

I also would spend money for sport bets as most people here. Like on next Olympic Games I would make bets for all possible results of football matches. It would bring me the most profit and guarantee me some success.

if I prefer not to bet on it, to be honest it would be a huge risk of loss.

but if I choose to bet, I would bet on sports gambling.

Let's suppose this happens ever that me to have 1600 BTC if I will gamble with money or not this is the question. I will go to convert all money straight into fiat and will start some real life project. After all it is equivalent to almost 1 million dollar which is more than enough to make life. I will not even think about gambling anymore.

I will change it to fiat if that is the case,

So still fiat is less risky than the other choices you've given,
But only with great analyzation on how to manage it.
To also limit the risk of losing your money.

But for those who are looking for a real thrill, then go to slot machine all in, then boom!!, win or lose, most probably lose.

I would bet on sports betting because of the 50 / 50 probability and is affected by skills that will give you advantage on winning.  Plus tips and hints from veteran to professional people are everywhere.  If not Sports Betting Ill just wait for it to increase in value and convert it to fiat money.
