Gaming software developer adding more than 100 jobs in Central Virginia
Castle Hill Gaming, a gaming software developer, is expanding its Albemarle County headquarters, a move expected to create 106 jobs over the next three years.
The project will involve a $1.3 investment. Castle Hill Gaming will receive funding from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP) to support the hiring and training of new employees.
Based in Albemarle, Castle Hill employs data scientists, designers, developers, and mathematicians in creating gaming solutions. The company currently serves 25 Native American tribes in four states operating 75 casinos.
Castle Hill now has 55 employees, with 25 based in Albemarle.
“As a U.Va. graduate who grew up in Albemarle, I am proud to be creating jobs in the county,” Arthur Watson, CEO of Castle Hill Gaming, said in a statement. “Virginia has created an exciting opportunity in its approval of historic horse racing machines, and participating in this new industry will enable Castle Hill to create dozens of sales, service, and manufacturing jobs in Virginia.”
Watson said the company has developed historic horse racing machines, which have been independently tested and approved by Gaming Labs International as meeting Virginia standards.
