    Everything is going cashless so why not have cashless gaming! Makes perfect sense and prevents money laundering by gang bangers and drug lords in Bermuda. Our casinos will be money laundering operations for these guys! Cup Match is their cash in period and the Banks don’t care if they launder the money while we watch the cricket game but they want them say no to the casinos and to crypto coin? Make up your mind cause there is no way you know source of the funds at Cup Match people! Smh
