What kind of game innovations do you want to see online?

7 replies • Last post

I was looking at some sites recently and saw that a gambling company debuted a casino pinball game called Vegas 2047 Pinball. This game is kind of like a slot machine mixed with pinball and actually introduces an amount of skill.

I myself think it looks pretty damn sweet, and I would play this at a land casino.

This got me to thinking: what kind of cool casino game innovations would you want to see brought online? Where are the types of games online headed?

Gee that looks cool. But the thing is no-one is going to offer a truly skill based game if it can be mastered and beat, otherwise they will go broke. So I'm always dubious about stuff like this - there has to be a catch somewhere.

On the other hand, if someone set up a pinball site where you could play against other people and wager on the result, that would be awesome. Just like playing against my friends in the arcade when I was a kid, only for money. Same thing with classic arcade games like Galaga or Robotron etc.

If you like pinball and have an iPad, have a look for "Pinball Arcade" in the App Store. It has digital recreations of loads of real old pinball tables like Star Trek, Addams Family, Black Knight, Terminator 2 etc that you can buy and play. It is really cool. I would love to have a real pinball table one day but I have two problems: 1. not enough room in my house and 2. my wife would probably neck me!

Actually here it is:

I am conservator!(something like get this your new sh*t and go away from here).
But i saw games only online, never visit landbased casino in my life(nearest 10 mins of walk from me, so some sort of achivement). Online new games looks awesome = pay nothing. I hope this will changed. Imagine DOA with awesome graphics? Smile

The companies making this game are trying to add some element of skill, as they know younger players want such a thing (the PlayStation generation, I know). I myself would definitely go out of my way to find this machine in a casino and test my luck.

Let's hope that is the case in the near future!

I was listening to a Freakonomics Radio podcast a while ago and they were discussing the fact that pinball machines used to be illegal between 1940-1970s especially in places like LA and NY because they were deemed a game of chance rather than a game of skill. Obviously gambling was considered a no, no by the government of the day back then....oh wait.....

I was really surprised given it's such an innocuous pastime....time waster yes, but not bad enough to be prohibited??!!

here's a couple of links if you're interested

Actually the original pinball machines were gambling machines. They didn't have flippers and people just fired balls up into the playfield and tried to get a good score by bumping an pushing the machine as the ball came down. A little bit like Pachinko in Japan today. The players could win free games which they could trade for money with the shop owners.

Don't ask me how I know that.
