Get Ready, Competitive Pac-Man is Coming to Casinos Next Year
Are you a master at playing the classic arcade game Pac-Man? Put your money where your mouth is because it's coming to casinos next year!
Mashable reports, a competitive form of the arcade game will debut at the Global Gaming Expo, in early October.
Pac-Man Battle Casino was developed by Bandai Namco and Gamblit. It will be based off 2011's Pac-Man Battle Royale where each person controls a separate Pac-Man to eat Blinky, Pinky, Inky & Clyde (aka the ghosts).
I'm pretty sure I've seen this version of the game at a Dave & Buster's. But unlike the classic arcade game, you're playing for real CASH!
I haven't seen any word whether or not Atlantic City will be adopting this game into their casinos, but I sure hope they do! Younger audiences are attracted to these sorts of games versus the traditional slots. Perhaps its the nostalgia factor, or because they don't relate it to their grandma sitting at the slots, as I do.
As for the other casinos, Pac-Man Battle Casino will make its way to casinos by early 2018. Here's hoping Atlantic City does the same!
