The Golden Nugget Las Vegas has gained a new highlight with the GOLD to go ATM. As of January 5, 2011, the world famous hotel and casino is the second location in North America with a permanent installation of a GOLD to go ATM, the world’s first gold vending machine. Following the global premiere at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, the European launch at the initial European locations in Italy, Spain and Germany and the North American launch at the Town Center in Boca Raton, Florida, the Golden Nugget joins an elite group to offer the rare opportunity to purchase gold from a vending machine.
The GOLD to go ATMs are always online and update their prices every 10 minutes based on current gold spot prices. Along with gold bars of various weights ranging between one gram and one ounce, the vending machines can also sell traditional gold coins. Ex Oriente Lux AG, a medium-sized company from Reutlingen, Germany, known for its online precious metal portal www.Gold-Super-Markt.de, installed the ATM at the second US location today. GOLD to go, a world novelty born of German innovation, provides private investors with easy, convenient access to physical gold at fair real-time prices.
“We’re proud to be the first in Vegas to offer this amenity,” said Tilman Fertitta, CEO and Chairman of Landry’s, Inc., parent company to the Golden Nugget. “We offer our guests the ultimate Las Vegas experience and what’s more fitting than an ATM that dispenses gold, especially since the Golden Nugget is home to the Hand of Faith, the world’s largest nugget of gold.”
Every product is quality-certified and comes from recognized manufacturers. In addition, each item is sold in a high-quality gift box – making GOLD to go an exceptional source for special gift ideas. The “GOLD to go ATM” gold bullion products vending machines presently operate in more than 15 locations worldwide including Germany, Spain, Italy and Abu Dhabi.
A computer inside the ATM collects real-time prices based on those listed at the online portal Gold-Super-Markt.de. This makes risk premiums unnecessary. In addition, the system doesn’t necessitate sales personnel and requires only minimal space, meaning that customers benefit from fair prices. Every gold bar is made up of 24-karat gold and each item comes with a money-back guarantee. It’s never been easier, quicker or more convenient for individuals to purchase gold bars and coins of certified quality at fair prices.
The gold ATM offers private investors an opportunity to expand their gold portfolio. However, the products dispensed by the machine, with their exquisite packaging, are also perfect for special gifts of lasting value.
“Thousands of hours of development, lots of tinkering as well as the heart and soul of our fantastic team were invested in GOLD to go – not exactly a small risk for a medium-sized company. That is why I am so pleased that we are now present with GOLD to go in the United States, following the great successes in Abu Dhabi and Europe,” says Thomas Geissler, Ex Oriente Lux AG CEO and inventor of the world’s first gold ATM. “Providing easy access to physical precious metals for the average person at fair prices, both online and offline. That continues to be my aim.”
