The first ever skill-based slot in the country started taking bets last week in Atlantic City. On Wednesday, the popular company Caesars Entertainment revealed a slot with the same economics as other machines, yet simulating a video game.
The game is called Danger Arena is an FPS or a first person shooter and the payout is determined by the ability of the player. The machine gives the players a brief tutorial. Afterwards, it presents the customer with the scenario and map. This will vary and will be absolutely random which complements the element of chance that is offered by the classic slot machines. Furthermore, the player will have approximately between 45 and 90 seconds to manoeuvre through the field.
21 of these machines will be distributed between the casinos of the company Caesars, Bally’s and Harrah’s. The skill-based games are mainly targeted by millennials and expect to guide a new era of wagering, which is aimed at attracting the young population who grew up playing video games.
Since Atlantic City’s current financial situation is dire, the unveiling of this skill-based slot machine came at the perfect time.
There were similar slots, which were recently approved by the Nevada State. However, they are yet to unveil.
