GameCo, Inc. Debuts New Match-3 Style Game, "Pharaoh's Secret Temple," for First-Ever Video Game Gambling Machine (VGM™)

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GameCo, Inc., creator of the world's first skill-based, video game gambling machines (VGM™), announces the debut of a new game, "Pharaoh's Secret Temple." The Egyptian-themed "Match 3"-style game developed in conjunction with Pirates Gold Studios is now live in Atlantic City at all three Caesars Entertainment properties and at the Tropicana Casino Resort.

In "Pharaoh's Secret Temple" players embark on an adventure to unlock the riches of the Pharaoh's Secret Temple by matching gems to collect rare treasures before their time is up. Appealing to casual gamers and current slot players, this casual video game features awesome boosts, power-up prizes, charms, and Egyptian-themed traps. Pirates Gold Studios developed the original game specifically for GameCo's proprietary VGM platform.

Further building its portfolio of skill-based gaming video game titles, next month, GameCo will debut "Nothin' but Net," a basketball-themed game developed in collaboration with Free Range Games. With "Nothin' but Net," Free Range Games lets players hit the basketball court with 16 shots to win big. Players' virtual skill in making layups, jump shots, free throws, and half court bombs is challenged in this fast-paced game, which also includes bonus money balls.

"As skill-based gambling offerings are introduced to casino players, continuing to broaden our VGM catalog with new games that address multiple video game genres is a top priority for GameCo, and we believe a critical deliverable to help drive new revenue on slot floors," said Blaine Graboyes, co-founder and CEO of GameCo. "We are committed to providing unique and engaging content that will appeal to current casino players and attract new audiences, by developing a variety of relatable video game gambling experiences that feature familiar entertainment based on popular brands from movies, TV, video games, and casual style games."

Throughout 2017, GameCo expects to continue its position as the market leader in skill-based gaming with the release of 10 or more new VGM titles, including games under license from major game developers and entertainment IP companies such as Paramount's "Mission Impossible," "Paranormal" and "Ferris Bueller," as well as "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" from StudioCanal S.A.S.

GameCo changed history in November 2016 when it became the first skill-based gaming company in the world to debut on casino floors, with the launch of VGMs and its first title, "Danger Arena," in Atlantic City at all three Caesars Entertainment properties, followed by the Tropicana. GameCo is currently executing a major nationwide rollout, with plans to be operational in most major U.S. gambling jurisdictions by the end of 2017.
