We’ve talked extensively elsewhere on RealMoney.games about skill gaming being the most potentially lucrative way of playing games for money.
One aspect of this that’s been talked about for some time is whether casino games – in particular either slots or other types of cash video games – can be engineered so that using skill to edge odds more in favor of the player is a viable option.
So we know that some casino card games can be strategically played so that odds are tilted more towards the player, although that doesn’t override the inherent house edge. Now the attention is turning towards what can be done with video gaming…….
Gameco were one of the first to make the attempt, launching their skill slot Pharaoh’s Secret Temple in land-based casinos in 2017.
Not surprisingly given the title, it’s a slot based on an Egyptian theme. Gameco created a slot that’s pleasing to the eyes and ears with great graphics and music. More to the point though, it gave you the chance to land some big wins using skill. That includes progressive jackpots.
With this development Gameco positioned themselves as one of the leaders in the field, and now they’re looking to extend their portfolio with a new basketball themed game called “All-Star Hoops”
This new release offers a player 16 shots on a basketball court to try and win some cash. Gameco describe it as ”an easy to play and highly engaging pick-3 sports game. Choose one of three basketballs for a chance to win cash, Tokens, or access to the Mini-Game or Bonus Round! Win up to 100x your bet for each dunk attempt in the Bonus Round.”
The game can be played at :
ATLANTIS CASINO RESORT SPA Reno, NV
PARK MGM Las Vegas, NV
MGM GRAND Las Vegas, NV
As the popularity of cash prize skill-based video gaming grows we an expect to see more developments from GameCo.
Who knows, we may eventually see online versions appearing in virtual casinos too.
