Those adolescent skills are about to pay off.
Arcade lovers will be happy to learn that they can now put their skills to the test while winning money playing one of the classics. The 1980s hit game Frogger is coming to Las Vegas.
Last month, Konami Gaming, Inc. premiered the new skill-based Frogger: Get Hoppin’ at MGM Grand’s Level Up entertainment lounge in the form of a competition. Participants were some of the first to play the game, which starts with a $2 wager and gives players the chance to win both random and skill-based cash awards.
“Considering Konami’s extensive heritage in consumer arcade and video game entertainment, we’re excited to bring that creativity and technology to the gaming industry in new ways and help pioneer the development of next generation gaming product,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Konami.
The game is the first primary skill-based game in the Nevada market, and it’s already poised to bring non-traditional gamblers to the casino—money isn’t necessarily the draw. Most people are playing to see their name atop the leaderboard, but winning a few extra dollars doesn’t hurt.
