Parrott To Hall of Fame

The American Gaming Association announced that Tim Parrott, former CEO of Shuffle Master, Inc., Aristocrat Technologies and Anchor Gaming,  and one of the foremost leaders of the gaming industry for the past 20 years, will be posthumously inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame this November during the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

Parrott died in May, shortly after leaving his CEO post at Shuffle Master due to an undisclosed illness. Prior to joining Shuffle Master, he served as president of Aristocrat Americas for two years.
