New skill-based gambling products from GameCo and Paramount film studio
The famous film studio Paramount Pictures has licensed the creator of the world’s first skill-based gambling machines to develop games using the themes of their blockbusters Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Paranormal Activity and Mission: Impossible.
Located in New York, GameCo has created their first VGMs to allure a new generation of gambling customers to gambling institutions. In total, these video gaming machines resemble the cabinets featuring arcade games but with a patented design. Certain skills are required gambling here and their financial model is similar to the slot machines casino patrons are used to.

As to the games available at VGMs, these are just adopted versions of products made by desktop, console and mobile producers. All of them can be enjoyed in a single-player mode. Here, you are offered the possibility to gamble for 45-90 seconds a session and obtain some cash winnings depending on your play and skills.
