Konami premiers a skill-based game

What are skill-based gambling games?

Konami launched its brand new skill-based game called “Frogger: Get Hoppin.” You can try it out in MGM Grand, Las Vegas. The developer claims to be the first provider to be authorized for field trials under the Gaming Control Board in Nevada’s New Innovation Beta program, and it is also the first one to introduce skill-based gaming as a primary gameplay on the market in Nevada.

Frogger offers players the opportunity to win random cash awards and even earn real cash awards based on their skills. The top scores are recorded on a daily basis as well as on the all-time Hall of Fame leaderboards. On 18th and 19th of February, the game premiered in a contest, in which the participants played to earn high scores and try to become the world’s first Frogger champion and of course to win cash prizes.

The Tom Jingoli Chief Commercial Officer and Executive Vice President at Konami Gaming, stated that if we consider Konami’s extensive heritage in consumer video and arcade game entertainment, we are excited to bring their technology and creativity to the gambling industry in new ways as well as help pioneer the development of the next generation gaming products they will deliver.

He added that thanks to the Nevada GCB as well as the NIB program, unique software such as Frogger could react to early feedback, which will strengthen the success for operators, developers, and consumers alike. As this sector continues expanding, the players can look forward to connecting with new forms of gambling entertainment that will reinforce their social preferences and interests.
