ATLANTIC CITY — Tropicana is set to become the fourth property in the resort to offer skill-based gaming.
Starting Friday, Tropicana Atlantic City will feature nine terminals that combine elements of video games and slot machines. With the expansion, GameCo. Inc., the developer of the games, will have 30 machines across four city casinos.
“It will bring a new level of fun and entertainment to Tropicana and is a perfect addition for our Slots in The Quarter gaming area,” said Steve Callender, general manager of Tropicana.

The industry has been trying to attract younger gamblers by offering them something outside the scope of traditional slot machines. Last month, GameCo launched machines at all three Caesars Entertainment properties in Atlantic City.
“As someone who spent my childhood summers on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, it’s equally exciting and humbling to be the leader in bringing video-game gambling to casinos,” said Blaine Graboyes, CEO and co-founder of GameCo.
The gambling platform allows a player’s skill in video games to determine the payout and winnings, while maintaining the same casino economics as slot machines.
