Uruguayan pesos (UYU) are used as the official currency of the South American country of Uruguay. It was in 1993 that the UYU was introduced, replacing the previously used nuevo peso. Uruguayan pesos are subdivided into 100 centesimos and are issued by the country's central bank. The banknotes in circulation are in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1,000, and 2,000. Coins, meanwhile, have values ranging from one to 10 pesos.
Many online casinos accept Uruguayan players, and a few live casinos allow Uruguayan pesos as well. Gamblers in this country can enjoy exciting live dealer games such as poker, roulette, and blackjack using Uruguayan currency.
