In a recently posted statement, AGA President and CEO, Bill Miller commented on this year’s inductees saying, “Gavin, Virginia and Mike have each helped transform the gaming industry in their own significant ways. From leading casino and manufacturing operations across the country to serving in a multitude of board and advisory roles, their influence has spanned the U.S. and global gaming industry—and we are all better off for it.”

AGA Chairman of the Board and Hard Rock International Chairman and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen described the importance of the Gaming Hall of Fame adding, “The Gaming Hall of Fame is comprised of individuals that have pushed the industry forward through innovation, leadership and excellence. This year’s inductees are well-deserving additions to its ranks.”
