Heres the scariest part of the article

It says there will always be an attendant watching the game because pro players might use tactics to win from novices.

Huh?

So anyone who manages to skilfully win will be labeled an AP? Only novices will be allowed to play at (laughable) skill games?

Gamblit Poker. Worlds first Poker game where pro players going up against ploppies not allowed

Let's quote exactly what it said so we can break it down.

"Why? Because they have to monitor the play to avoid collusion and bullying. We were told there’s the potential for experienced players, or teams, to take advantage of novice players. Essentially, there’s room for cheating."
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪

Having seen this game in person, the similarities to Poker are limited to the fact it uses a deck of cards and the standard poker hand rankings. The actual play of the game is more like a hybrid of Go Fish and Hungry, Hungry Hippos.
Don't forget, "FREE" is a four letter word.

You know what's coming next, take first place in Mario Cart and win the prize money. You could even take side bets on the race.

Ya, you never know, especially if people mention all the ways they can or would take advantage of it and then show some math.

... I'm not sure if it is a good or bad business model to cater to a demographic that grew up spending real money on digital livestock.

Wow.
Well said.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

“The innovative machines were highly touted when they debuted in Atlantic City in November, and since have started appearing on other casino floors. But their initial reception is proving to be largely a bust. Price revealed that 21 of the machines have been removed after they failed to generate adequate revenue to cover vendor costs.” — Caesars Entertainment Senior Vice President Melissa Price, hinting that skill-based slots may be the Edsel of the gaming industry.
