Real money skill games now at Canada’s Winnipeg casino.
A few years ago, skill gaming machines were all the talk south of the 49th parallel. Manufacturers wanted to make them. Regulators wanted to test and authorize them. Casinos wanted to host them. It was all part of the collaborative mission to get so-called millennials onto the gaming floors of casinos from Atlantic City to Las Vegas.
Here in Canada, there wasn’t much talk about these skill games. As usual, our government sits back quietly, waiting to see what happens elsewhere. If they like what they see, they mimic if. If not, they take a pass.
It’s exactly why so many Canadian punters are hopeful single-event sports betting will be on our wagering menus in the foreseeable future. It’s also the reason California-based Gamblit Gaming is announcing the installment of the first skill gaming machines in a Canadian casino.
After witnessing this company’s products attract players of an average 20 years younger than slot machines (30s, as opposed to 50s), they couldn’t pass on this opportunity.
Gamblit Brings Real Money Skill Games to Canada
In a press release this morning, Gamblit Gaming confirms the installment of its trademark TriStation gaming machines at McPhillips Street Station Casino in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This marks the first time Gamblit’s unique gaming systems are appearing in a Canadian casino; not to mention their first installment outside the US.
The TriStation is an innovative gaming cabinet that features a trio of touch-screen player positions. Each screen offers access to a variety of eight real money gaming options. The games involved in the Canadian installments are some of the company’s highest-rated titles, including:
