Skill Based Slots | VIXIO

New rules adopted in Nevada in 2015 heralded a revolution in the regulation of slot machines by allowing skill-based games and variable payout percentages for the first time.

The change came as casino operators and slots manufacturers seek games with greater appeal to younger players more accustomed to gaming on their PlayStations than casino floors, and with table games outperforming slots in many U.S. markets.

Beyond Nevada, gaming regulators in New Jersey, Massachusetts and other jurisdictions have also opened the door to skill-based slot content — with others expected to follow as manufacturers begin to develop products in accordance with the new standards.
