Last week the Nevada Gaming Commission announced that they have opted to approve the use of arcade style and skill-based slot machines, expanding the potential gaming offering of the state's casinos.
The regulator approved the changes, which are set to attract a younger generation of gamblers to casinos, as they want an aspect of skill in their games. These games could hit the floor as soon as this year, and it is likely that more of the games will be shown at the G2E Expo later this month. The Silver State's gaming revenues have flagged in recent years, and it is hoped that the change will help boost figures.
Commenting on the approval G2 Game Design CEO Gregg Giuffria said, "This is an evolution in gaming. An older demographic is currently playing slot machines. This addresses a completely new generation coming into casinos and a new wave of players."
A potential example of the style of game that could be offered is the Vegas 2047 game, which can be viewed below:
