Gary Platt, pioneer of the slot seating in Las Vegas casinos, celebrated his 91st birthday at the Gary Platt Manufacturing’s booth on the first day of the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in September.  Filled with smiles and well wishes, the crowd watched as Gary Platt, founder, and Skip Davis, president, shared a moment of reflection on how the casino industry has changed over the last 60 years.

“I really love coming to G2E, because I get to see so many old friends and we remember the old days and reminisce on how naïve we were to what our efforts were creating,” Platt said. “We were the founders of an entire industry, and we had little idea as to how it would grow. Now, I come here (to G2E) and see the next generation evolving our efforts in ways we didn’t even think possible. This makes me so grateful to be a part of this industry and so excited to witness the next chapter.”
