Skill games developer Gamblit Gaming has received regulatory approval to launch its TriStation single-player game machines across Nevada.

TriStation's full launch follows a successful trial as part of the Nevada Gaming Control Board's New Innovation Beta programme, which speeds up the process of introducing new gaming concepts to the casino market.

The TriStation is already installed in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, MGM Grand the Venetian, with the company set to expand installations across the US and Canada following the approval in Nevada.

Players in the state will be able to choose from five different skill-based game options that combine Gamblit-developed original content and a range of game partners.

Alongside proprietary titles Lucky Words, Match 3volution and Smoothie Blast, the TriStation will also feature PikPok's Into the Dead and Wicked Witch's Catapult King games.

"The TriStation approval is a huge win for Gamblit Gaming and another step forward for the skill gaming movement," said Gamblit Gaming CEO Eric Meyerhofer. "After six months of operation, we saw our average player was 36 years old; 22 years younger than the average slots player in Nevada.

"Additionally, nearly two-thirds of our players were not using player rewards cards, equating the launch of our games to a new, untapped revenue stream for casino operators. With hit games like Jetpack Joyride, Deal or No Deal, PAC-MAN and Cut the Rope launching later this year, the future of skill-gaming is very bright."

This summer Gamblit plans to release the first branded game, Deal or No Deal Poker Special, for its Model G interactive game tables, which is a high-energy gamblified casino experience based on the legendary TV show.

Also this year, Gamblit will release PAC-MAN Battle Casino, the first multiplayer PAC-MAN casino game developed in partnership with Gamblit and the original BANDAI NAMCO team behind PAC-MAN Battle Royale.
