Is America Entering a New Generation of Video Game Gambling?

The first page in the history book of slot machines began in 1891 and has been a real page turner right up to the current day. From the one-armed bandit to the newfangled video slot, we are all too familiar with the mindless trance spinning can put us into. Casinos around the world are lined with rows of these profitable machines but it seems that American gamblers are ditching the blank stare causing the revenue to fall as a result. A big portion of profit comes from slot games so what’s going on the US casino floors? 

Generally speaking, slots appeal to the 50+ age group so when you consider that the majority of people flocking to America’s gambling mecca, Las Vegas, are under 50-years-old, things start to make sense. 

“Today’s young adults are used to a more sophisticated level of video entertainment” said a Forbes article. “Pushing a button and just waiting to find out if you won or not is not enough entertainment for a lot of Millennials. The number of visitors to Las Vegas that spend time gambling has dropped more than 15% in the past few years and Millennials are gambling way less than other generations.” 

If the up and coming whippersnappers want more entertainment, then more entertainment is what they shall have and a company called GameCo has been working on a solution known as the ‘Video Game Gambling Machine’ (VGM). This solution will appeal to video game players but rather than pressing a button and holding your breath for a decent return as you do with slots, VGM payouts are determined by skill level. All those years of Xbox may finally pay off, literally. VGM games will cover racing, fighting, sports, puzzle games and much more. 

Tells us what you think LCB’ers. Have you lost interest in slots? Does the concept of VGM appeal to you?

    Yesss !!! It's very nice idea.. It's sure that playing slots (classic and video) day after day becomes more boring. That's why i usually prefer betting on sports because there are always events, news and not the bad routine of slots..On the other side, the bad thing is that VGM will not be available on all countries mainly my country.

The one thing I do no is that the €40 bonus was meant for active depositing players and the GFF50 bonus for inactive depositing players. It might be that the 40 bonus was sent to you in error, thus the agent offered you the correct 50 free offer. However I require your casino username so that I may investigate further.  RegardsJason thank you Jason my username is clarie- for the $40 i have deposited somes days agos but i have also used freebies it is for this reason that  i was denied  but no email  for verifcation account and for the payment declined- I know your   rules about free bonus- i am sorry its me that i did not understood why $40 not eligible then $50 elgible- If  i did not have winning  for  the first bonus  there willl be not all that.

    "  Oh, you hear the stories about how dangerous Ouija boards are, but hey—it’s just a game. Mary waited until midnight to begin our little game, and the four of us—Sarah, Jessie, me, and, Mary, started by asking all kinds of silly questions. It was a strange-looking board, covered with letters and symbols. There was a plastic pointer that was supposed to move across the board at the behest of the spirits. The instructions called it a planchette. Around one thirty in the morning, the planchette suddenly froze in Mary’s hand. It wouldn’t move, no matter how much we pushed and pulled. Mary turned her frightened blue eyes toward me. “I’m not doing it,” she said, lifting her hands. I grabbed the planchette myself and tried to push it around, but it was fixed to the board. Suddenly, a kind of electric shock buzzed through my fingers. I gasped and tried to pull my fingers from the planchette, but they were stuck. Mary and Jessie both tried to pull my fingers away, nothing helped. The other girls stared with wide, round eyes, as the planchette came alive under my fingers—which were still fixed to its surface—and began to move. “Help.” The words spelled out under my hand. “Help me. Help me.” The planchette kept moving back and forth between the h – e – l – p continuously, until Sarah cried out: “Who are you?” “Amber.” The board spelled. “My name is Amber. I am eight years old.” “What’s wrong?” Mary asked. Her face was so white all the freckles stood out like darkened age spots. “Water. Danger. Help. Scared.” The words spelled out as fast as my hand could move. “Call 9-1-1,” Mary cried suddenly. “Quick. Amber is in danger.” By this time, Sarah was gasping into the phone. Then she hung up the phone. “They wouldn’t listen to me,” she told us, almost in tears. At that instant, my hand was suddenly free from the planchette. “She’s gone,” I gasped, “See if you can contact her again,” Mary said urgently. “We need to know if she’s okay!” I picked up the plastic planchette again. “Amber, are you there?” I asked softly, afraid of what might happen. After a long pause, it moved slowly across the board and spelled out the words: “Too late.” And after another long pause. “Water. Flood. Drowned. Mobile. Alabama.” The planchette stopped.I knew that Amber was gone. None of us got much sleep that night. In the morning, we rushed through breakfast and then looked up the Alabama news on the Internet. None of us were surprised to read that there had been flash floods the night before. I read the names of those who had died in the flood. One of the victims was an eight-year-old girl named Amber. _____________________ My favorite casino is username is : aymenpronet."
