The Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas is underway despite Sunday’s mass shooting in the city that killed nearly 60 people and injured more than 500 others.

Students from the University of Las Vegas presented their own gambling innovations Tuesday.

From 13 Action News Las Vegas:

Troy Pettie and Even Thomas, a.k.a. Guru Games, used one of the world's fastest supercomputers to develop "Line Em Up," an electronic game that mashes "Candy Crush" together with a traditional slot machine .

Harold Moret, who runs a domino tournament league in Las Angeles, has created a table game called "Casino Dominoes" that uses cards instead of tiles.

Matthew Stream, who's worked as a card dealer for nine years, developed a simple version of blackjack called "Easy Jack" that stops at 11 instead of 21.

Even one of the professors has an idea to share - Associate Director Daniel Sahl created the "Color Changing Gaming Object," which could potentially offer bigger payouts compared to a traditional Big 6 wheel.

These projects aren't just for class. UNLV will be presenting their ideas at Global Gaming Expo (G2E) at the Sands Expo Center, which runs from Oct. 3-5. The event draws in about 26,000 professionals from the casino industry, which gives students the chance to turn their ideas into reality.
