Acres' New Company Licensed

John Acres, the slot industry legend who invented player tracking and co-founded Mikohn, Inc. and Acres Gaming, has received licensing from the Nevada Gaming Commission for his new venture, a slot content company called Talo Nevada.

Acres, whose previous venture was a game content partnership with former Sierra Design Group executive Rich Fiore, will move forward with ideas such as a slot machine that offers players a choice of volatility for every game. The machine would be able to offer programs with play features similar to games with which players may already be familiar.

“It’s kind of like Amazon,” Acres told the Las Vegas Sun. “If you like this, you may also like this.”

Acres received a manufacturer and distributor license for his new company.
