Buying bitcoin, a different approach

Being a gambler i thought I would share a nice way to buy bitcoin. Im sure there are more sites, potentially 5dimes could do this but i know Bovada and BetOnline to be viable options of doing this. You can deposit cash onto these gambling sites and withdraw in bitcoin. Bang, you have just bought bitcoin without KYC/AML and for about 5%. Bovada specifically this works. Just use a VPN, a burner email and false personal info to set up an account. Then if you want to air gap even further you can use a prepaid debit card you bought with cash to deposit onto the site. Then just withdrawal in bitcoin using a new address of course. I dont see many flaws in this having a nice degree of privacy and a way to buy bitcoin for a reasonably low markup. Ive done it a lot actually and the processing time is less than 8 hours. Gl lmk if you have any questions.
