What is a skill game?

A skill game is a game which requires some type of skill to win.  There are a wide selection of skill games, and these games can be used to sharpen skills, develop skills, or to just have fun.  Some examples are strategy games, arcade games, puzzle solving games, action games, card games, etc.  All of these types of games require either speed, excellent hand eye coordination, or higher level and critical thinking.

Is playing skill games considered to be gambling?

Well, it depends on where you play the game.  There are some fantastic online casinos that offer skill games, and playing at an online casino does place the skill game in the online gambling category, although the outcome relies upon skill and not chance, the location of the game ties it to gambling.  There are also independent skill game sites in which players pay an entrance fee to compete for prizes and cash payouts.  Playing skill games at these kinds of sites is not considered to be gambling, and is often available to players of all ages.  Back To FAQ's.
