Caesars introduces skill based gaming to their properties

Vanessa Arteaga sat at the “Danger Arena” game at Harrah’s Atlantic City with a controller in hand, shooting at robots as they jumped from behind walls. With each successful shot, the robot burst into an orange plume of flames. But Arteaga wasn’t just playing a video game. She was gambling.
