Richard Haddrill and others help the gaming solution advance its global AI-led efforts
As the gaming industry continues to evolve, so does the artificial intelligence (AI) that supports it. One of the leading AI-based companies serving the industry is Gaming Analytics, which provides intuitive decision-making support to casino operators. The California-based company, which has been involved in the industry for the past four years, has just received additional financial support from several long-time gaming executives, including Richard Haddrill. The amount of the investment wasn’t provided, but Gaming Analytics indicates that it will allow the company to explore “strategic growth” opportunities.
Haddrill has been CEO, Chairman or Vice-Chairman of five successful public companies. Among them are Bally Technologies and Scientific Games, and he was also elected to The Gaming Hall of Fame in 2018. Through his The Groop, LLC, he holds current investments in other areas, as well, including software as a service, payments, residential services, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation. He explains of his investment, “Gaming Analytics is bringing the future of business decision making to gaming operators today, with easy-to-use predictive analytics. [CEO Kiran Brahmandam] and I worked closely together for eight years at Bally Technologies, Inc.” He adds that he has “the utmost confidence” in Brahmandam’s efforts to expand the company’s operations.
Brahmandam states, “We are very excited to have the endorsement, commitment and advice of Rick (Dick) Haddrill. He has a wealth of experience in Gaming technology, with a real focus on customer success. This investment will allow us to further accelerate our growth.”
