It was there but out of order. Underwhelming.

Only Outdoor U.S. ATM That Pays in Gold

Still out of order as of October 26,2015. They say they are waiting on parts from Germany. Then someone to fix it. If ever.

Gold Dispensing ATM

As of July 6, 2015 the ATM is still out of order. I didn't feel like they were in any hurry to fix it after talking to the man inside. They were extremely friendly. They had 2.5g bars for sale, but both the man in the store and I agreed that there was a bit too much of a mark-up on them.

Out of order in November 2014.

[Stacy, 11/11/2014]

Perhaps that's what it displays if it suspects you and your family are not part of the pocket gold economy! This outdoor gold-dispensing ATM first roared to life in 2013. Two identical machines are inside the Golden Nugget casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
