Gavin Issacs

Gaming Legend

Via CDC Gaming Reports: "If they polled all the members of the American Gaming Association’s Gaming Hall of Fame, newly elected member Gavin Isaacs would most likely win the “Congeniality” award. He has an infectious smile and a twinkle in his eye, and he’s always ready with a grand story or two to entertain anyone in earshot.


His entry to gaming came with Aristocrat Leisure Limited, where he started in legal/compliance and quickly rose to the position of president of the Americas. Along the way, Aristocrat began its rise to record revenues. His next stop was as the COO of Bally Technologies in 2006 before leaving to become CEO of ShuffleMaster in 2011. He completed the circle when he became the president and CEO of Scientific Games in 2014, overseeing the mergers of ShuffleMaster, Bally, Barcrest, Global Draw, SG Lottery, and WMS.


With that packed resumé, Isaacs has now cut back to a reduced role that still puts him at the leading edge of gaming today. He holds senior positions at Galaxy Gaming and Games Global, working on online gaming products. In the interim, he had advisory positions with SB Tech, DraftKings, Jackpocket, and I.C. Intelligence.
