Skillfully Done

The advent of skill games in the casino business has been at best uneven. The biggest problems faced by slot companies offering skill games have been questions about who plays skill games and how much revenue they make. Last month, skill game company Synergy Blue produced a report, “The State Of Skill-Based Games In A New Era Of Gambling.” The report, a survey of more than 100 casino operators, addresses the advantages and challenges of skill games. At right, the report reveals that more operators would add skill games to their mix if increased revenue could be achieved. And while some operators measure the results of skill games against the floor average, others believe that skill games are a niche product unto themselves.
