    Another "niche" for the casinos to profit from, and it will probably work.

    I have two grandsons that have visited Vegas with their friends and girl friends. They took in a show, hit some high end restaurants, did the Grand Canyon tour, but gambled very little.

    But I suspect they might have played the "skill" games had they been available.

    Herein lies the rub. The bean counters will want to make these games as tight/profitable as possible. Only a small percentage will have the skill set to be able to make any money playing these games. People will play them once or twice, lose and never play it again. At least, not for their hard earned dollars. You may have a few drunks or dumbasses that will burn through their wallet to play, but I can't see casinos paying out on these machines to skilled and unskilled players all the time. How long before the casinos 86's the really good players? IMHO I do not see these games as a long term solution to the casino's Millennial perceived problem. The games may be fun in the short run, but check out the average life span of a video game. It is very short.
