Director of Online Gaming, Foxwoods Resort Casino

It’s not surprising that someone under 40 years old has achieved a high position in charge of online gaming for a major casino company. What is surprising, however, is that Seth Young, who occupies that position for Foxwoods Casino Resort, has been at it for more than 20 years. As a 13 year old, he started his first online business and later went to law school before working for some iGaming startups. But his big chance arrived with Foxwoods and he says he’s having the time of his life. Young’s interaction with land-based casino executives has given him a much wider appreciation of gaming overall. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas last month.
