The future of gaming is here… at the Trop!
For all you video gamers out there, bragging to the competition is usually the most rewarding aspect of a victory. But what if all those high scores came with a nice pile of cash? Well, today is a new day and gambling as we know it will never be the same.
Those of you who have been raised on Xbox, PlayStation and mobile gaming apps, may not get much of a thrill out of slots or video poker. That’s ok, because now it’s your time to shine. GameCo Inc. has answered all of your button-mashing prayers by creating the world’s first skill-based video game gambling machines. GameCo’s proprietary arcade-style cabinet balances player skill with patented game design, putting you (the gamer) in full control of your own winning destiny.
The best part? This state-of-the-art gaming experience is available here at Tropicana Atlantic City.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding deployment of our VGMs in Atlantic City with Tropicana,” said Blaine Graboyes, CEO and co-founder of GameCo. “As someone who spent my childhood summers on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, it’s equally exciting and humbling to be the leader in bringing video game gambling to casinos. Gamers deserve a “VIP Experience” and casinos such as Tropicana are the perfect venue to provide a unique destination and entertainment program.”
GameCo has brought a new level of fun and entertainment to Tropicana with three arcade-style games to choose from, featuring “Danger Arena,” “Pharaoh’s Secret Temple,” and “Nothin’ But Net.”
Pharoh’s Secret Temple
In Pharaoh’s Secret Temple players must embark on a one-of-a-kind adventure in search for precious gems and rare treasures – all before time runs out. The game (a Match 3 style game) appeals to casual and hardcore gamers alike, as well as current slot players – with awesome boosts, power-up prizes, charms, and heart-stopping booby traps. Pirates Gold Studios developed the original game specifically for GameCo’s proprietary VGM platform.
For those who like to play games like Halo and Call of Duty, Danger Arena is where it’s at. With the video game controller (similar to Xbox) affixed to the front of the machine, you’ll feel right at home. The gameplay is simple, and the payouts are great. Take out 6 or more Danger Bots within 45 seconds and you’re in the CASH. Eliminate all 10 bots, and the payoff is 25 times your bet. Bets can range from $.25-$20.
Nothin’ But Net
As far as all the core sporting gamers out there, we’ve got you covered. Nothin’ but Net is a basketball-themed Hybrid game that gives you the opportunity to hit layups, jump shots, free throws, and even some half court bombs. In collaboration with Free Range Games, Nothin’ but Net, lets players take the court with 16 shots to win big bucks, including the ever-popular money ball bonus.
Committed to the future generation of casino customers, Blaine Graboyes tells us he will continue to provide unique and engaging video game gambling experiences, while strategically aligning GameCo with casino partners who share those same visions.
“As skill-based gambling offerings are introduced to casino players, continuing to broaden our VGM catalog with new games that address multiple video game genres is a top priority for GameCo, and we believe a critical deliverable to help drive new revenue on slot floors.”
