GameCo has announced the development of three video game gambling machines (VGM) based on popular films: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Paranormal Activity, and Mission: Impossible.
The arcade-style video game cabinets allows players to win money based on their skill while maintaining the same casino economics as slot machines. Games VGM's are currently available in Atlantic City at Caesars, Harrah's Resort, and Bally's Wild Wild West.
According to a statement from GameCo, the company is developing a racing game based on Mission: Impossible, a hidden object game themed to Paranormal Activity, and a platformer experience adapted from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Paramount to bring these brands to the casino floor," said CEO Blaine Graboyes. "Video game gambling addresses the largest opportunity for casinos and studios in attracting the next generation of gamers."
