A New Vegas


Spending your days connected to the latest video game could start paying off.

Nevada is on the edge of what could be a whole new world of casino experiences. It seems the powers that be in Vegas are drawing up arcade style video games that would pay out winnings based on your high score.

The idea is aimed at the generation of people who have been raised on Xbox, PlayStation and apps. Gaming experts say these people don't get much of a thrill sitting at a slot machine or blackjack table. So to bring in the high tech crowd they are looking at games that involve shooting down aliens or mastering the art of war. The higher your final score the more you win.

Game developers say this could be the first of a variety of changes. They say casinos of the future will likely involve DJ’s and dance floors. And despite the catchphrase this is one idea that won't stay in Vegas. If successful it could spread to Atlantic City and casinos across the country. Guess your kid’s hobby could pay off.
