After taking a year off due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Gaming Hall of Fame is now accepting nominations for its Class of 2021 inductees.
Established in 1989 to honor professionals who have made significant contributions to the gaming industry, the Gaming Hall of Fame, in addition to gaming legends such as Sam and Bill Boyd, William Harrah and Sheldon Adelson, includes members as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Wolfgang Puck, Nevada Senator Harry Reid and magician David Copperfield.
In the most recent Hall inductions in 2019, the honorees included Elaine Hodgson, co-founder, president, and CEO of Incredible Technologies; Stanley Mallin, real estate, hotel, and casino developer; and Ernie Moody, president of Action Gaming and creator of Triple Play Poker.
“It’s been one of the most challenging years in our industry’s history,” said American Gaming Association President Bill Miller in a statement. “Through it all, I have remained in awe of the those who have led the way and the trailblazers who have put an indelible mark on gaming. We recognize these types of leaders every year through the Gaming Hall of Fame. The AGA is currently inviting nominations from across the industry, and we look forward to celebrating this year’s inductees in October.”
Nominations are being accepted until July 11. The new class will be inducted October 5 at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. For more information and to nominate individuals, click here.
