People have been playing games with dominoes for years. But the American casino industry has never taken a serious interest in using dominoes to haul in gaming profits.

This could change, though, in the near future. A former UNLV student is working on a dominoes-based casino game that could become very popular. Let’s discuss what this game is along with why it could become a hit.

What Is Casino Dominos?

Harold Moret attended a UNLV Center for Gaming Research class on casino gaming innovation. And this helped him come up with a game called “Casino Dominos.”

Moret’s game utilizes cards and scoring rules from All Five Dominoes. According to UNLV news, Casino Dominos also uses a table that looks similar to what blackjack features.

Each player receives domino-designed cards along with a single, face-up domino connector card. Players must match the connector card with one or more dominoes in their hand to get a point total of 5, 10, or 15.

This game also offers a side bet. Players win if they make this wager and are dealt two or more double dominoes.

Casino Dominos Is Still Trying to Gain a Foothold

Moret is a big enthusiast for dominoes, running the largest domino tournament in the world. His Universal Dominos League is currently offered in Las Vegas. Therefore, it’s not hard to see how Moret was able to combine his passion for dominoes with what he learned at UNLV.

But he still has a ways to go before this game officially hits casino floors. However, considering that the little-used Pai Gow Dominoes is the only alternative, it wouldn’t be surprising if we eventually see Casino Dominos in Las Vegas and other major casino hubs.

The first step will be for Moret to secure a trial run at a Vegas casino. Both he and the casino can then go from there to see if it’s popular enough to run full time.
