The literature acknowledges that finance and accounting competencies are critical for hospitality professionals. To date, however, no research on finance and accounting competencies has been conducted in the gaming industry, nor has any study been conducted in any hospitality subsector after the Great Recession of 2007-2009. The current study identifies the importance of finance and accounting abilities and examines whether there are significant differences in the perceived importance among different gaming industry professionals. The findings reveal that preparing operating budgets is the most important of all skills and that years of experience and department function do not generate a significant difference in the level of importance of any skills.
