Gold Strike in Jean has 1990s era arcade games downstairs where you don't even have to put in quarters. Just hit start and you can play.



Wow, I had no idea they were free and I am there a lot.

Regarding gambling online video games there was some scandal with a youtuber who was endorsing a CS:GO gambling site, but failed to disclose the affiliation and he benefited greatly from an unfair advantage in winning rare items, which were not true to the actual drop rates.

On Call of Duty there is a supply drop system, which you can earn new skins and new weapons in 2 ways: saving points from playing games, or buying COD points to purchase the drops. It's really stupid since it's 0% EV since you can't resell them or trade them. On CS:GO I think you can resell them for a good amount if you have rares and whatnot.

Article in LVRJ describes a driving game tournament with a $1 Million dollar prize pool coming to Vegas in January during CES.

I think we should sponsor Face to get us a piece of the $250,000 first prize...

A deal has been struck to build an eSports venue in downtown's Neonopolis Ghost Mall.

I don't have confidence in the success of this project due to the location. The bums will scare the kids away.

That would depend of the casino it self. The are the organizer of the tournament and they are the one who will set the wager. If you would go to other casino they also have a area for eSports, most of the time I saw NBA game on it.

The 2018 League of Legends World Finals had almost 100 million viewers. That's Super Bowl type numbers. Esports is expected to generate $1 billion in revenue this year. Even the U.S. Army now has its own professional esports team comprised of active duty soldiers. This stuff is huge.
