Nevada Licenses Steelman as Game Supplier

Architect Paul Steelman (l.) received a gaming equipment manufacturer license in Nevada, where he is developing skill-based games such as “Running Rich Racing.”

Paul Steelman, who has been one of the world’s top architects of casino hotels for three decades, is now legally a gaming equipment manufacturer as well.

The Nevada Gaming Commission unanimously voted to grant Steelman, whose firm Steelman Associates has developed gaming resorts from the Las Vegas Strip to Asia, a gaming equipment manufacturing and distributing license, which he is using to design new types of skill-based gaming machines. Steelman displayed his first title, the road-racing game “Running Rich Races,” at last fall’s Global Gaming Expo.

It is one of several skill games being developed by a new subsidiary to Steelman’s architectural firm, called Competition Interactive LLC.
