Both games have the same sliding scale for wagers. I believe .50 $1 $2 $3 $4 $5 $10 $15 and $20. The only advantage to higher wagers is an exponentially larger payout for random bonus objects. First they have to appear and then u have to be skillful enough to collect them
Those games will never be successful until you charge $100 and put fur on them.
My girlfriend plays candy crush all hours of the day so she seemed a natural. I convinced her casinos games are different enough from i-phone games to get her to only wager $1.
She was amazing knocking down rows and rows of items (egyptian symbols instead of candy) nonetheless after playing 8 games she failed once to ever win a single game.
She often had 3 treasures collected within 20 seconds. Then the other 40 seconds she just played with not one treasure becoming available. Nothing on the instructions warned your skill may be useless however on danger arena there was some more clarification. It says each game played has anywhere from 5 to 10 killable bots. How convenient since you need 6 to win any money and at least 8 to make a profit
After she realized this my gf was uninterested in playing. After only 8 bucks she declared it was basically a cheat if once u depressed the spin button it was already predetermined if u could even possibly win
Both machines had no one playing. Skilled players are not going to be happy with this and worse unskilled players will both be daunted by playing and find it even harder to win. All in all that spells a death knell for this iteration of skilled video game slots
IMO Ahigh solved this problem. A player with no skill could do well. As far as I'm concerned his pinball was the best skill game idea around. The ajustable betting and custom wins was a good idea, the graphics and game play was great.Quote: whitejack
I have never been able to understand the appeal of skill based gambling. If I lose at blackjack or slots, well both are -ev. If I lose at a skill based game, it's because I suck ?
How do you design a skill based game that will allow the unskilled or average player to win, yet stop the very skilled player from winning? Anybody care to answer that question ?
Remember the key word is "SKILL"
Poker requires skill, yet in the last decade Vegas has lost over 100 poker tables.
Most gamers are in the 16-22 age range. Casinos have a minimum 21 age to play. Are casinos aiming at the 34 year old gamer living in Mommy's basement ?
