I'm currently in Las Vegas and saw two skill-based slots at Golden Nugget. The first was called Race Ace, the second was Centepede. Both games were unremarkable video slots until you eventually get to a bonus game. The bonus games are skill based. The one I got a Race Ace was boring. All you did was pick the racer and fuel, which determined the base amounts of the bonus. Then you tapped a button frantically to speed up the car. There was no driving involved, even though there was a joystick. There may be a different bonus, but I don't really have high hopes for the game. I ended up with about 700 credits for the second from top level. The second machine was Centipede, based on the old-school Atari game. This one was much more fun and possibly an advantage play for good Centipede players. I easily beat all three levels. There is still the spider which can get you and isn't worth any points. All you have to do is destroy the centipede. There is also a scorpion bonus in the third level. One of the key things that makes it easier is that there are no fleas dropping new mushrooms, so destroyed mushrooms stay destroyed, slowing the centipede as it gets lower. The bonus amounts are cumulative and beating 3 levels without the scorpion got me nearly 1700 credits. The value of the game will still depend on the frequency of bonus rounds, but it seems you could do well under the right circumstances/skill. It will be interesting to see how they deal with the potential of skilled players winning.
