I saw on reddit that BitVegas was being redesigned, so I dusted off Minecraft and connected to the existing iteration of BitVegas. What I found was a virtual casino, with all the bets done with play money, but counted out in bitcoin. Some of the games were classic Las Vegas games, like Blackjack, but there was one that involved trading your bet in for a shovel and digging around for coins. It was a fun concept, though I was a little disappointed that people weren’t linking up actual bitcoin accounts to play. I also didn’t spend that long in there, so there may have been a way to do it. It was fun to check it out, though. If you’re into Minecraft, and want to visit, the server address is: mc.bitvegas.net
