GameCo, Inc., creator of the world’s first skill-based, video game gambling machines announced Monday six video game gambling machines are now in operation at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut.

The Foxwoods’ addition marks GameCo’s entrance into a second gaming jurisdiction in the U.S. as well as the company’s introduction to tribal gaming for its skill-based gaming menu.

The games now offered at Foxwoods are Pharaoh’s Secret Temple and Nothin’ but Net. 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. “Nothin’ but Net” lets players try 16 shots to win cash.

In November, GameCo became the first skill-based gaming company to introduce its video game gambling machine in casinos in Atlantic City and plans to be operational in most major U.S. gambling jurisdictions by the end of2017.
