While Bally’s is a very recognizable name in the casino industry, it’s current iteration is relatively new and has a much loftier goal that previous versions. Soo Kim bought the brand from Caesars when he was running Twin Rivers, a relatively small casino company based in Rhode Island. Kim has set a path to Bally’s becoming a true omnichannel gaming company that excels in online gaming, sports betting, land-based gaming and sports entertainment. Kim says it’s been more difficult and has taken more time than he originally estimated, but believes his company is on the right path. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
