From a small casino in Rhode Island to a national brand encompassing every way gaming is consumed in the 2020s, Soo Kim has directed the explosive growth of the new Bally’s Corp. over the past several years. Kim is embracing the disruptive elements of interactive gaming and extending the company’s efforts into technology, media and entertainment. Kim explains how the plan has evolved and how he’s been busy implementing it with purchases of new casino properties, gaming technology companies and joint ventures with media and entertainment companies and reviving the classic Bally’s brand. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros in April for the May cover of the magazine. The interview was conducted prior to the purchase of the Tropicana in Las Vegas in late April.

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.
