Games of Skill

7 posts in this topic

I recently had the chance to play some of our contraversial "games of skill," at Southland Park & Gaming.

They've got them a full-fledged casino going on there...it's great. They have somewhere around 1,000 machines...table games, and a huge buffet. It looks as good, if not better, than a Tunica Casino. I was curious to see how the games of skill work. Well...THEY"RE GREAT! They're much better than regular slot machines....you actually have a hand in whether you win or not. They are regular slot machines, but just played a little different. You get two spins. It's kind of like Yahtzee. You spin the first time, keep the ones you want, and only spin off the one(s) you want. It's something you actually have to participate in, rather than just sitting there pushing the button. I played for 3 hours on $20, came out with $225. I played several machines, and all did well. It's a much better experience than a regular casino. The one in Hot Springs is smaller, but they are expanding soon. I once complained about this games of skill limitation...but I hope the state sticks to that...it's much better.

I'll have to go and check these out, it sounds like fun...thanks for the info. Southland is about ten minutes from my house while Tunica is thirty so maybe I'll head west the next time i go gamble.

I'm not much on gambling but it does sound more interesting than the typical slots.

While I am not against this in the least, nor am I debating that these are more interactive than normal slots, they are still based on pure chance. They all pay out at a pre-determined rate, no matter if I sit down having never played or someone that has played a million times sits down. We both will make the same amount of money if we play over a long enough period of time.
