Skill games are now allowed in the casinos of Atlantic City
Written by Clémence Valendrin on Monday, March 30, 2015

The Borgata is now emerging as the largest casino in Atlantic City, in terms of gross gaming revenue. To try to attract more younger players, they are now about to offer skill games, meaning games that are solely based on skills and dexterity, not just chance. The establishment will become the first one in United States to offer these type of games. Other casinos in the state and the country will therefore be very interested in this experiment.

A nationwide premiere

During the month of February, the Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) of the State of New Jersey has allowed casinos to offer their customers the opportunity to play games based on skill, i.e. skill games. This is a premiere in the whole nation. This means that interest in this type of games from the public is currently not yet proven. We do not know whether its introduction will increase the revenues of the land-based casinos in Atlantic City. However, experts expect that this novelty will attract new customers and stimulate the market of local gambling.

A new way to play at the casino

The skill games definitely represent a change in the way of playing at the casinos. In fact, some of them are combining the gaming experience of slot machines with those of gaming consoles, such as the Nintendo Wii. These slots offer fun features based on skill and dexterity, just like in video games. There can also be competitions. For example, the Borgata will soon host a basketball throw tournament with a $10,000 prize and a buy-in of $20. Skill games might be emerging as a new way to attract people to the casino.

An experiment that it watched by many

The leaders of the regulatory authority for gambling in the state of New Jersey hope that legalising skill games will enable the development of this type of activity and start the arrival of a new type of player in the Atlantic City casinos. The gambling establishments in the city will not be able to afford to invest in such devices without knowing their impact regarding the attendance of players because of financial difficulties. This means that everyone will pay close attention to what will happen at the Borgata Casino. Land-based casinos from the rest of the United States should also follow this experiment. The senate committee of the State of Nevada is also working on regulations for skill games.
