Job Outlook

Employment of gaming services workers is projected to grow 2 percent from 2016 to 2026, slower than the average for all occupations. Employment will be driven by the increasing popularity of gambling establishments. Additional states currently without commercial gaming establishments may allow new casinos to be built over the next decade in an effort to bring in more tax revenue. However, the risk of oversaturation may force some states to scale back their plans to build new casinos. As more states approve expansions in the number of gaming establishments, the competition for customers will increase. Those establishments that fail to keep or attract customers may close, thereby negating some of the jobs created from new casinos. Furthermore, the increase of online gambling may draw some customers away from traditional brick-and-mortar casinos.
