Bitcoin is a form of currency generated by computing devices (you can use PCs to do this, but the big investors use specialized devices).  It has no physical form like coins or notes but exists only in computing devices (storage).  To pay for anything you transfer your Bitcoin from your storage device (cloud, USB stick, computer, etc) to someone else's Bitcoin storage device.  In this case it is probably an online gaming machine.
