If you own some Bitcoins, and you also like to play online games, you’re in luck: Zynga is testing Bitcoin payments in some of its popular titles.

You’ll be able to use Bitcoin to make in-game purchases in FarmVille 2, CastleVille, ChefVille, CoasterVille, Hidden Chronicles, Hidden Shadows, and CityVille, all via Zynga.com, reports Polygon. Since this is just a test, other games won’t offer Bitcoin as a payment option (yet), and it’s possible that this option may not be around forever.

Zynga has partnered with BitPay, a Bitcoin service provider, to handle the transactions. If you’ve got the Chrome browser plugin KryptoKit, which simplifies Bitcoin payments on any webpage accepting Bitcoins, it’s a pretty simple process to purchase credits, as the video below demonstrates.

Zynga made the announcement on Reddit in the subreddit r/bitcoin.
