Yes, you can as long as you adhere to adwords policies and remember that Google doesn't allow ads or sites that promise users the ability to "get rich quick" without realistic, credible, and reasonable claims. You must provide users with accurate information about the risks associated with their product or service.

So, before doing anything make sure to understand user safety policy section: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1050602?hl=en&rd=1

Pavel,

From what I've understood from Ahmed and Moshe's reply, there's no issue with bitcoins themselves. Bitcoins are just a form of receiving/sending online payments and Moshe above said Google replied that there's nothing specifically against it.

However they also stated that other policies apply normally. Meaning, regardless of whether you use bitcoins or not, if you're running a "gambling" website then gambling policies apply, so do all other policies.

If by "bitcoin games" you mean casino games/gambling games that pay winners/allows deposits via bitcoins, then you might need to take a look at the gambling policies:
https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176014?hl=en

Make sure you understand the rules for your country and apply to run gambling with Google. I also wanted to add that you might want to share your website as I sense that there's a little bit of confusion as to what you're trying to describe and what we actually understand. Sharing the live website might help you get more concrete advice.

Hope that helps!

My opinion, is that bitcoin falls under the category of e-gold, and thus not allowed.
I will submit a query to Google

Ok; Google replied.
There is no specific reference to Bitcoin. All policy sections - (as Ahmed mentioned) - apply.

So GANGM can advertise his game ( where user pays bitcoins) without risk of getting disapprove for ads with reason "gambling"?

@MosheTLV
What did exactly you ask Google: about bitcoins or about "bitcoin games"?
