Bitcoin Now Accepted at Two Vegas Casinos: The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate

The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino become the first properties in Sin City to begin accepting the alternative digital currency bitcoin.

Both establishments will start offering bitcoin transactions on Wednesday (January 22, 2014) for reservations, dining and gift purchases.  Bitcoin will not immediately be offered in the casino itself for gambling purposes at either hotel.

The Golden Gate was recently upgraded.  It is the oldest hotel in Las Vegas, having opened in 1906.  The D Las Vegas is a much newer property.

“We’re located in the growing high-tech sector of downtown Las Vegas, & like all things downtown, we’re quickly adaptive to new technology Derek Stevens, CEO of both the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate.
