When Everi joined together an up-and-coming slot company, Multimedia Games, and the industry’s most powerful payment processor, Global Cash Access, it was a marriage of diverse companies and cultures. Board member Mike Rumbolz was brought in as president and CEO to fix the problems, and fix them he did. He’s been able to create a powerful brand that spans the two technologies, and develop cutting edge products on both sides of the equation. The financial technologies division has upped its game and now processes billions of dollars in payments every month. On the slot side, new cabinets and content have created truly unique games that can be enjoyed on any platform. Rumbolz spoke with Editor Frank Legato in August for the cover story of the October issue of GGB.
