The struggling casino industry in New Jersey has tried many different things to turn around the tide and start seeing an increase in revenues instead of declining revenues year-on-year. Some casinos started to work closely together with online companies to boost revenues, while others are trying a different approach to attract more land-based visitors.
Now the New Jersey Gaming Regulators are looking into adding skill-based casino games to the casinos, such as Candy Crush. These games could be integrated into slot machines or online slots and attract a younger crowd, who currently doesn't play a lot in land-based casinos or slots due to them feeling that its for the older crowd.
Something needs to be done soon to turn things around, as the past 8 years has seen a 40% decline in revenues in Atlantic City. If an agreement can be reached with popular skill-games that can be integrated, the New Jersey Gaming Division is willing to fast-track approvals so the games can be integrated much faster than usual.
