In August 2011, BMI Gaming announced the decision to enable users to make bitcoin payments for products and services ordered through its online website.  It made perfect sense for BMI Gaming to adopt bitcoin for both domestic and international clients, with an export department shipping products to over 90 countries worldwide.  While over 95% of total sales take place on the web, their customer base ranges from home users, business professionals and high-profile media celebrities to commercial clients such as Family Entertainment Centers, arcades, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, casinos, hotels, resorts, cruise ships, shopping malls and chain stores, as well as educational facilities and non-profit organizations, along with local, state and federal government agencies, including the US Military.  Although there had been some concerns voiced regarding the use of bitcoin such as security, the quick and inexpensive redemption of bitcoin into US Dollars and transfer into the local bank account of a merchant alleviated most security issues for BMI Gaming.  BMI Gaming now accepts bitcoin payments up to $50,000 US Dollars.

Since inception in 2002, BMI Gaming has attained several prominent business awards in the few years since its inception, including Inc. Magazine’s “Inc. 500 List” of the fastest growing private firms in America in 2007, PriceWaterhouseCoopers “Hot 100 List” of the fastest growing companies in the US in 2006, and is ranked by Internet Retailer Magazine as one of the “Top 500 Internet Retailers” in the world.  Furthermore, BMI Gaming lays claim to the “World’s Largest Gaming Superstore” on the internet by sales and by number of products offered, and is ranked as the most visited commercial website (based on total global visitors) for coin-operated machines in the world, according to statistics published by  You’ll be surprised to know that one of the largest and most popular video channels on YouTube for arcade games, with over 300 HD-quality videos is operated by BMI Gaming.
