Todd Haushalter had risen to the pinnacle of his profession in 2015 when he served as vice president of table games for MGM Resorts. That followed years of working for table game suppliers, where he became one of the top experts in the industry. SO it was a surprise when Haushalter resigned to join Evolution Gaming, a small, at that time, European company that offered “live dealers” for online casinos. Since then, live dealers have exploded on the internet and Evolution is clearly the market leader. Haushalter has expanded the Evolution product offering to include betable game shows and explains why the live element of online gaming is still in its infancy. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom in August.

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.
