with AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater

LAS VEGAS (September 16, 2021) – “The global market for gaming technology has really exploded. There’s new technology opportunity, and there are certainly new players in the game,” says Marcus Prater, executive director of the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) during his conversation with GLI CEO James Maida in the latest episode of Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI®Illuminating Conversations web series.
The episode is available now exclusively at and lends an eye to suppliers’ exhibits at next month’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. For example, Maida and Prater give insights into the future of gaming and discuss the organization’s views on payment modernization and the threat posed by unregulated and illegal gaming devices sometimes referred to as “skill” games. The pair also talk about AGEM’s growth over the last decade and how suppliers have united through AGEM to pursue important issues affecting the gaming industry worldwide.
The gaming industry’s positive impact on community is also a topic, and as part of the discussion, Maida and Prater talk about GLI and AGEM’s Lasting Impact Philanthropic Initiative, which has helped to positively impact organizations such as UNLV’s College of Engineering, the International Problem Gambling Center, and the National Native American Veterans Memorial.
