Pac-Man Goes EatSports with 'Battle Casino' Designed for Las Vegas Gambling

Pac-Man is about to put his money where his mouth is, as he's ready to storm Las Vegas casinos.


Pac-Man has been around since the dawn of video games, with the dot-muncher gracing every gaming platform imaginable, starting with his original arcade release. Now Pac-Man is set to conquer a wildly unexpected new frontier: the world of casino gambling.

A report by Compete (the esports wing of Kotaku and Deadspin) points to the existence of Pac-Man Battle Casino, a collaboration between publisher Bandai Namco and casino gaming designers Gamblit Gaming. The tabletop game would look similar to the cocktail table versions of Pac-Man Battle Royale and play in almost the same fashion, pitting four Pac-Man players against one another. Like Battle Royale, the idea is to be the last Pac-Man standing, attempting to outlast the other Pac-Men against CPU-controlled ghosts. Players place their bets prior to the start of each session and compete for a prize randomly determined at the start of each round.

What makes Battle Casino unique is that it's one of the first instances of skill-based video game gambling. While slot machines have adopted video displays, they're still mainly games of chance. Success in Battle Casino is entirely dependent on one's skill as a Pac-Man player.

Look for the first Pac-Man Battle Casino machines to pop up at next week's G2E trade show in Las Vegas, NV, with permanent casino hosts set to be announced.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I really love to play such gambling games, I have been in this one for a long time and I really like it, because I have a great time, meet people from all over the world, and make great money with everyone. You can play gambling anywhere at any time and this is the main thing for me. I also consider it important to have services with reviews on gambling, I like the way PikachuCasinos routinely assess and update their reviews. They ensure players feel safe in their online casino site of choice by updating them with gaming features, banking updates such as the online casino deposits and withdrawal process and the site's legitimacy. I have been using PikachuCasino for more than three years, and I have never been disappointed. When I want to sign in to a particular casino and feel suspicious, I usually go to their site to read their reviews. Their tips help me remove the doubt when gambling, and they help me determine my way forward. Similarly, when not sure about the casino welcome bonus of a particular site, their casino bonus, or their promotions offers, I go to PikachuCasino to read what they have to say about that casino. You will also find reviews of all the types of casinos including mobile casinos, iPhone casinos, Android casinos and tablet casinos. They even review online casino software developers such as Amaya, Gaming, Evolution, Microgaming, name them. This way, you can choose which game and from which provider you will play confidently.
