I believe I read somewhere that if millennials do gamble, it's 8% for slots VERSUS 24% for table games. I see skilled slots are focusing on Zombies and War games. Well, E3 2017 is a gamer's equivalent of G2E. Gameinformer #1 video game magazine voted a game #1 of all the games presented there.
50 games rated and #1 is....... SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY

Millennials like screens to interface with and generally do not gamble in b&m casino's, but they sure do online. Also they will gamble like a mofo on cryptocurrencies.

This article basically states casino business is contracting because there are less gamblers and the value of the gambling dollar has decreased while the house advantage has increased yoy.

This is the quote from the above that I liked the best:

"Thus, if you really want to appeal to millennials, what you really want to do is find a way to deliver gambling value, appeal to intelligent people, and let smart people sell their friends on your propositions."

Not sure how the proliferation of 6:5 BJ is addressing this, but in an internet informed Millennial Age, the bad deal that 6:5 BJ is for the player doesn't seem like a long term winning strategy for operators.

Compare that to UTH with its 0.58% Element of Risk when played correctly...I can tell you which game a Millennial is going to want to learn and play and it isn't 6:5 BJ.
