Is a Pong Slot Coming to Your Casino?

Monday, August 06, 2007

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- As reported by the Las Vegas Sun: "Pong, the game that turned pinball wizards into video-game junkies in the '70s, is poised to make a comeback in casinos.

"This time,
  it could help turn the video-game generation on to slot machines.

"Las Vegas-based Bally Technologies is seeking approval for a Pong slot machine where a player's video skill would help determine the payout.

"'Ever since we showed it a couple of years ago, there's been a great deal of interest," said David Schultz, director of video games for Bally, which has show n the game at trade shows.

"Pong and the twist of a payout based on player s' skills were debated last week by the state Gaming Control Board. The panel said slot machines must have an element of randomness in their base game but noted that Pong's skill element comes into play only in the bonus round - something not covered by regulations. So, the three-member panel recommended approval and sent Pong to the Nevada Gaming Commission, which has to sign off on the concept before it could be played in a casino.
