You will soon be able to lose a great deal of money in Vegas with Apple Pay.
Or at least pay for the hotel/casino in which you lose a great deal of money.
The Cosmopolitan resort in Las Vegas has announced that Apple Pay will be accepted at the hotels’ front desk, restaurants and bars by early June. Room service can also be streamlined using Apple Pay, as the concierge service will also accept Apple Pay as a payment method. This means that you can pay with your iPhone or your Apple Watch.
It’s currently unknown as to whether you’ll be able to use Apple Pay to gamble directly, as most casinos limit chip purchases to cash-only transactions. In cases where credit cards are accepted, the payments are marked as cash advances only.
Apple Pay has currently been accepted by a large number of merchants and over 200 banks and credit unions in the United States.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
