Would You Gamble on Skill Based Slot Machines?
It sounds to me like the casino industry is getting more serious about trying to target younger consumers.
Nothing unusual about that when it comes to goods and services. And combining gambling that appeals to the gamer in you just might hit a home run! Associated Press tells us that a company called GameCo is negotiating getting their games in three Atlantic City casinos owned by Caesar's. They are skill-based slot machines, meaning that while there is still the random game-of-chance element like all slot machines, these games have a "Danger Area" where players have to take out robots.
The machines have to first get approved by the New Jersey gaming commission. And while it's obvious the casinos can still control the odds, if they're popular, you know you'll be able to play 'em soon in Vegas, baby! DB
