Yoseloff Inducted into AGA Gaming Hall of Fame

The American Gaming Association has announced that Mark Yoseloff, the retired CEO of Shuffle Master Inc. who founded UNLV’s Center for Gaming Innovation, will be inducted into the AGA’s Gaming Hall of Fame. The ceremony recognizes leaders who have made significant contributions to the gaming industry, and will take place Oct. 5 at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

Yoseloff, who holds a doctorate in mathematics, is hailed for the creation of classic and legendary casino table games such as Mississippi Stud Poker. He helped catapult Shuffle Master from a small company to an international powerhouse by developing hundreds of groundbreaking patents for new gaming products. Yoseloff later founded UNLV’s Center for Gaming Innovation, an academic incubator that seeks to create innovative and commercially viable casino games. Students in the internationally-acclaimed program have filed more than 50 patent applications — 18 of which have resulted in issued patents and eight in commercialized products. Several of these games are available to play in casinos today.
