On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, the American Gaming Association (“AGA”) announced the induction of five honorees into the Gaming Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016:  John Acres, a gaming-technology pioneer; Lyle Berman, an instrumental catalyst in the development of casinos, now commonplace in 40 states nationwide; Don Brinkerhoff, the architect who designed many of Las Vegas’ iconic landmarks; Redenia Gilliam-Mosee, the first African-American casino vice president in Atlantic City; and Richard A. “Skip” Hayward, a visionary for Tribal gaming.

“Each inductee shaped today’s gaming industry in a distinct way, from paving the way for opportunities for employees of all backgrounds, revolutionizing the player experience and pushing the boundaries of what casinos look like and where they exist,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the AGA. “We’re proud to recognize their lifelong achievements by inducting them into the Gaming Hall of Fame.”

The inductees will be honored at an invitation-only ceremony Wednesday, September 28 at The Venetian as part of the annual Global Gaming Expo.  For more information on the 2016 hall of fame inductees, please click here.
