Casino-oriented attendees at Casual Connect Tel Aviv packed lecture hall 2 at The Charles Bronfman Auditorium earlier this month to dive into everything casino – from sweeping overviews of the social casino industry to detail-oriented lectures on building apps to ways non-casino developers can break into the casino industry.
Highlights included a social casino industry overview by industry leader Playtika’s Elad Kushnir in which he predicted casino operators will ultimately find it difficult to capitalize on social casino and will exit the market. Anatolii Henis of rising star Murka dove into how the company crafted a poker game for a younger generation. PlayStudios’ John Lin looked eastward and discussed how social casino is evolving in Asian markets.
Many other industry leaders and experts from companies such as FlowPlay, Gamblit, Eilers & Krejick Gaming, Rocket Games, GSN Games, Super Lucky Casino, Product Madness, iGaming Capital and Google also provided key insights on topics ranging from game mechanics, business acquisitions, skill-based games in casinos, business strategies, user acquisition, emerging markets and much more.
For those that missed out on the conference, lecture videos are available on Casual Connect’s official YouTube page.
