Social casino games could be real growth driver for the company. In the top 10 grossing titles of iOS games in America, Big Fish Casino, Hit It Rich and GSN Casino are at the sixth, ninth and tenth spots respectively. The social casino genre is the third most popular segment after strategy games such as Game of War, Boom Beach and Match 3 Puzzle, says the report.

Though Zynga’s title is relatively small when compared to daily revenue from Clash of Clans, still,going beyond social casino slots to include other games like Blackjack, Bingo, or Baccarat could help Zynga attract more players for the Hit It Rich! franchise,” says the report.

By the end of 2015, the casino market is expected to grow to $3.3 billion, and the social casino genre already accounted for 11% of mobile gaming revenue last year. According to Newzoo, mobile games revenue will total $30.3 billion this year. Assuming the same 11% share, the social casino genre would be worth $3.3 billion.

  1. Yes, after going through the whole content I also would like to acknowledge that Aman haven’t aware of total knowledge on Zynga Inc and their recent changes. By the way It’s a good post when it comes to casino in USA

When a money losing company is paying the CEO 50 million dollars a year in compensation for extremely poor performance, then this company will never be a buy and Aman needs to go back to school to learn how to analyze a business. Guess its true, losers attract losers.
