Electronic wallet in Las Vegas

Las Vegas visitors can now use their electronic wallet to pay hotel bills or buy show tickets, but not for gambling.

Next time you visit Las Vegas, you might be able to leave your credit cards at home. Many hotel-casino resorts along the city’s famed Strip now let guests use their digital wallets to pay for their room, meals and more — but not for gambling.

MGM Resorts has begun accepting various digital forms of payment at nearly all points-of-sale at its 12 Vegas properties (though there are some limitations at Circus Circus). The company has been installing the needed equipment for seamless transactions over the past three months.

Caesars Entertainment last week launched WeChat Pay, a mobile electronic pay platform that’s huge in China and poised to expand its U.S. Presence.
