Two Las Vegas casinos are going to start accepting Bitcoin

Posted Jan 22, 2014

There are two casinos in Las Vegas that will soon start accepting the Bitcoin virtual currency. The two casinos are the The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel and the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino – both owned by the same company. Both of these casinos said that they would process the transactions through BitPay.

“I’m proud that the D and Golden Gate will be the first casino properties to accept Bitcoin,” stated Derek Stevens, the CEO of both properties. He decided to accept Bitcoin after several customers asked him about using Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is going to be accepted at five locations including the hotel front desks, a gift shop, and an Italian restaurant. The Golden is the oldest casino in Las Vegas as it was built in 1906.
