Mississippi Sees First Cryptocurrency ATM Installed at Casino
Mississippi has been one of the pioneers of sports betting. First Cryptocurrency ATM has now been installed at the Casino.
Scarlet Pearl Casino in D'Iberville has installed a cryptocurrency ATM. It's the first casino in South Mississippi to have one. The ATM allows people to convert crypto to physical cash. Mississippi doesn't allow people using cryptocurrency when placing a bet on a slot machine, but ATMs don't have any such restrictions.
The manager of Harrah’s Gulf Coast in Biloxi, Jonathan Jones, argues that implementing tech solutions such as crypto ATMs will bring in more engagement from younger people. Mobile betting is yet to be legalized in Mississippi. The COVID-19 pandemic has led many bettors to prefer forgoing the community element and wager safely from their house.
