D Las Vegas Casino adds bitcoin ATM for visitors to use

The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel, the first Vegas casino to accept bitcoins, now has a bitcoin ATM machine

The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel, which was the first Sin City casino to accept bitcoin cryptocurrency payment, now has its own Robocoin bitcoin ATM. Customers can exchange U.S. currency and bitcoins, or deposit cash into bitcoin accounts. D Casino Hotel is located off the main strip, and can be found on Fremont Street.

D co-owner Derek Stevens said the number of bitcoin-related transactions is higher than initially considered, though wouldn't disclose exact figures. The popular cryptocurrency is accepted at the D front desk, casino floor, restaurants and in the casino gift shop.

 

The addition of bitcoin ATM machines in shopping malls and other popular shopping destinations continues to grow - and with casinos fighting for visitors willing to spend money - adding them to the hotel lobby and casino floor makes sense. Bitcoins continue to gain mainstream acceptance from customers, and more stores are showing interest in accepting the currency as payment.
