Emerald Island Casino - penny casino
It seems another effort is underway to eliminate the penny!  An Act, which also seeks to totally replace the dollar bill with a coin, was announced last week by U.S. Senators John McCain and Mike Enzi. The act has a long boring name, but a great acronym.  The official name is the Currency Optimization, Innovation, and National Savings Act of 2017, or the COINS Act for short. Citing the high cost of making a penny and claiming that dollar bills don’t fit into the modern economy, the authors of the Act claim that the cost savings of the plan could be as high as $16 billion.

Over the past several years, the Nevada Gaming Commission has been studying skill based gaming and carefully crafting legislation to regulate this exciting and innovative new gaming experience.  The new regulations allow a game’s outcome to be determined by the application of chance, the skill of the player, or a combination of skill and chance. ​ Traditionally, slots wagers must be determined entirely by a machine’s random number generator. By contrast, skill-based slots would allow players to increase their chances of winning depending on how well they perform a video game-like task. “Skill-based” slot machines are meant to appeal to the young and young at heart.  Some of the first such games that are rolling out soon will include familiar video arcade game titles that we all fondly remember!  These fun new games will give players a totally new gaming experience!  For the first time players will be able to influence the outcome of a reel type game.
