Earlier last week, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed into action the Amusement Games Bill. Much to the delight of young gamers and not-as-young CEOs, this bill allows for family entertainment centers to, once again, install amusement games and machines in their stores. While this is good news for any family entertainment center with locations in Florida, one company who can be especially excited is Latitude 360 (info below), an upscale dining and entertainment venue headquartered in Jacksonville.
With their multi-faceted entertainment experience, including features such as sports bars, fine dining spots, and live comedy shows, Latitude 360 was hardly ever dependent on the fate of gaming machines; however, the popularity that games such as skee ball and claw-grabs have at destinations such as these are certainly not to be taken lightly. While the exact implications that this bill will have are yet to be seen, Brent Brown, CEO of Latitude 360 believes the passing of this legislation will push the latitude of the company to even greater heights.
