Pennies From Heaven

The latest Eilers-Fantini Game Performance Report for July isn’t about revenue, but about the breakdown of denominations and types of games offered on the floors of casinos that participate in its database (U.S. commercial casinos, 53 percent; tribal casinos 34 percent; and Canadian casinos, 13 percent). The data shows the overwhelming number of penny games in all categories of participants. It also highlights the importance of premium games (dollar and higher) as that segment continues to grow. As for the types of games, video reels rule the roost with more than 65 percent, but mechanical reels have been making a comeback and video poker/multi-games are also a growing segment.
