The online casino industry is really just becoming mainstream as conferences and the social networks pick up on the action and deliver interesting insight into the social gaming trend.

The Casual Connect USA conference is coming to San Francisco at the end of July 2013. This year’s event will have a special focus on social casino games. Social gaming is emerging on the networks and on mobile platforms. The conference which was held for years in Seattle, is now at the Hilton Hotel location which offers the best of San Francisco. Casual Connect will be the place to learn more about an industry which entertains over a billion people every month. There will be more than 40 speakers on the topic of social casinos with the Casual Games Association, which puts on the event, billing the social casino track as the largest of its kind on the North American continent.

Over 5,500 professionals attend the Casual Connect conference every year. This event brings together the most talented and knowledgeable experts in the casual gaming field to further the casual games industry by networking and experience.

Real-money online gambling is being accepted as regulators looking for tax revenues are legalizing it in jurisdictions around the world. Social casino games are benefiting from the renewed interest as well as renewed interest in casino games as social experiences.

Jessica Tams, managing director of the Casual Games Association, commented on the conference, “Casino is one of the fastest growing sectors of the games industry; an opportunity supported by the investment of casual, social gamers,” Tams continued, “Casual Connect is the perfect forum at which game developers and casino companies can meet, share information and collaborate.” Recent research from Eilers Research revealed that Caesar’s Interactive Entertainment has overtaken Zynga as the largest social casino game publisher in the world.
