New Jersey Gaming Industry Needs Skilled Mobile Gaming DevelopersOn Wednesday, New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement confirmed that New Jersey’s casino industry had a rough September.

With revenue slipping and online gambling still under-performing expectations, some are saying its time to more enthusiastically embrace the mobile age and its most talented gaming developers.

“New Jersey’s gambling regulator is considering proposals for adding skill-based social games, like Candy Crush, at casinos in the state in an effort to revive the flagging industry,” Bloomberg is reporting.

Although most proposals presently focus on bringing popular social and online games into the physical casinos, the opposite may need to be true for casinos across the Garden State to regain their lost step.

In short, industry watchers say, until New Jersey’s biggest casinos and gaming operators dramatically pour more effort into building out their mobile presence, the gaming industry will continue to under-perform.

“Casino operators have struggled in recent years to attract younger people to gambling, especially to slot machines,” the report notes. “Social games, particularly ones based on poker and slots, have done well, even though players can’t win real money. Casino games are traditionally based on luck, not skill.”
