The emergence of analytics and big data has opened the study of how slot games are consumed by players. When Nick Hogan founded Reelmetrics along with John Boushy and William Schoofs, he pledged to use analytics and big data to help operators and manufacturers streamline their knowledge of the games business. Reelmetric’s mission is to map the slot genome and in the process supercharge the returns of its subscribers, employees, shareholders and the industry at large. He spoke with GGB Editor Frank Legato in March.

Frank Legato is editor of Global Gaming Business magazine. He has been writing on gaming topics since 1984, when he launched and served as editor of Casino Gaming magazine. Legato, a nationally recognized expert on slot machines, has served as editor and reporter for a variety of gaming publications, including Public Gaming, IGWB, Casino Journal, Casino Player, Strictly Slots and Atlantic City Insider. He has an B.A. in journalism and an M.A. in communications from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. He is the author of the books, How To Win Millions Playing Slot Machines... Or Lose Trying, and Atlantic City: In Living Color.
