AGA to recognize 2022 gaming hall of fame class

The AGA is set to recognize its new gaming hall of fame class in October.

The American Gaming Association (AGA) is scheduled to recognize its gaming hall of fame class of 2022 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas this October.

Three gaming leaders were chosen for their contributions to the industry. They are Gavin Isaacs, former president and CEO of Scientific Games Corp. and current chairman of Games Global; Virginia McDowell, former president and CEO of Isle of Capri Casinos, current non-executive director of Entain plc, and cofounder of Global Gaming Women; and Michael Rumbolz, former CEO of Everi Holdings Inc. and current executive chairman of Everi Holdings Inc. Rumbolz has also been a member of the board of managers of Seminole Hard Rock International LLC since 2008.

The Seminole Tribe is the parent entity of Hard Rock International and Seminole Gaming.

“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,” AGA chairman, Hard Rock International chairman, and Seminole Gaming CEO Jim Allen, said in a news release Aug. 16. “I look forward to celebrating their contributions alongside the entire gaming industry at G2E 2022.”

This will be the 33rd hall of fame induction the AGA has held since 1989.

Last year, the AGA added the Seminole Tribe’s Jim Shore to its gaming hall of fame class of 2021 at an invitation-only event at the Venetian Resort on the Las Vegas Strip with about 150 people.

Shore is the Tribal Council’s general counsel. Members of the tribe’s leadership were in attendance, including Chairman Marcellus W. Osceola Jr., Hollywood Councilman Chris Osceola and Brighton Councilman Larry Howard. Allen, and Shore’s executive assistant since 1989, Agnes Motlow, were also at the event.
