Casino and Casino-style Gambling - US - August 2016
"The US casino gaming market has been growing steadily, and is forecast to continue on a stable trajectory, as a consistent stream of visitors come through casino doors each year. The long-time staple of casino floors, slot machines, are the game of choice, but tech-savvy Millennials’ interest in more social and digitally-centered games is driving the industry to develop new options. Due to curiosity about online gaming (iGaming) and interest in non-gaming pursuits, operators will be challenged to compete with other leisure activities that offer similar exciting and social elements.
