- Greater focus on skill-based games and interactivity
- Five new games will be previewed at gaming expo
Is 2017 set to be a breakthrough year for skill-based casino gaming?
One of its pioneers, GameCo Inc, is introducing the “Casino of the Future, Now” – and it invites attendees of this year’s Global Gaming Expo (G2E) to experience the gaming revolution firsthand.
The G2E event in Las Vegas next month will be the launching pad for the developer’s latest gaming concepts, including five original game titles and an innovative bartop experience platform.
GameCo is hoping its innovations will be an important disruptor in the casino industry: all eyes will be on the company at G2E when it reveals the fruits of its development efforts next week.
Futuristic casino concepts unveiled
GameCo will be promoting two of its radical ideas for the casinos of the future: skill-based arcade-style gambling, and competitive multiplayer eSports.
Tech fans at G2E will be watching out for the demo of Multiplayer Challenge Mode: a platform for up to eight players which supports all leading console and PC game systems.
It makes it easier than ever for casinos to set up eSports tournaments and events, or to host touring eSports contests. Using innovative technology, GameCo has even introduced progressive jackpot software that is compatible with eSports systems.
For those who prefer to play alone or as part of a team, the new Bartop VGM is also turning heads.
GameCo’s system mixes traditional bartop gaming, with video poker and other classic options, with bright, fun concept games similar to those leading the mobile gaming market – including matching and hidden object games.
The Bartop VGM is pre-programmed with a large number of classic and modern games, including three exclusive new titles.
Five new games on display at G2E
GameCo plans to reveal details of five new games during its Las Vegas showcase, including two for arcade and bartop play and three that will only be available on the Bartop VGM system.
Bar games include underwater bubble pop adventure Poseidon’s Deep Sea Saga, puzzle tile game Cosmic Candy Heist and the hidden object game Twisted Worlds.
It is GameCo’s arcade titles which have been more hotly anticipated, and G2E will be the showcase for both Steve Aoki’s Neon Dream and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
These skill-based games – an infinite runner and first-person shooter respectively – use a unique blend of skill and luck. Terminator 2 will include a progressive jackpot feature, GameCo has confirmed, and is hoping to win over fans of the classic movie and game series thanks to its authenticity and advanced graphics.
G2E opens next week in Vegas
The annual Global Gaming Expo is the leading showground for the casino and gaming entertainment industry’s latest developments and innovations. New technology, original designs and creative ideas are all on display at the expo event, which will be held this year at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
G2E opens on October 3 and will run until October 5, though some fringe events may fall outside of the main program’s schedule.
On Tuesday October 3 at 2pm local time, the company will be joined by special guest and gaming partner Steve Aoki to discuss the superstar DJ’s involvement with Steve Aoki’s Neon Dream.
