I haven't been to Las Vegas for a few years but I frequent tribal casinos and I've not seen any skill based machine games on the floor.

There was a lot of discussion about them here a few years ago, in fact one forum member helped develop and display one.

My question: any new developments in this area?

so i dont think this is very relevant per se about "new" developments but i just recently learned what the "skill" is in pennsylvania

the skill is recognizing whether or not a "wild" symbol will actually complete a 3 symbol pattern

Last time I played PA Skills, they displayed what the result of the next game would be at a given bet level, so you could skillfully decide if you wanted to pay $2 for an $18 prize or not.

I know it was a nuisance to cycle all the bet levels to decide what the next favorable play would be.

("Bombs and Bombshells"... definitely for amusement only.)
May the cards fall in your favor.

Fascinating.. I just watched the video on https://www.paceomatic.com/skill-games explaining their Skill games. He literally says that it's possible, with skill, to win on every single play.

While I'm sure there's more nuance to that, I wish we had these here because I'd love to try it out for myself just to understand the catch. I'm guessing the catch is that you might always be able to "win" 20c for a $1 bet or similar.

I encountered Missouri NCG machines recently.
The huge disclaimer sticker is amusing. (I will try to sneak a photo of the disclaimer if I get a chance and the kindly gas station staff don't enthusiastically discourage photography.)

Not my video, but possibly informative:

The result preview gives new meaning to the state's nickname.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Sorry for the ongoing image rotation problems. Every time I think I've got it sorted, I mess it up again.

Summary: these games are not gambling under the state law definition, because the machine informs you what the result will be (unless you wish to be surprised and do not check).

Missouri is a strange place.
May the cards fall in your favor.
