Fellow gaming entrepreneur GLI CEO James Maida hosts the episode, and the two explore the significance of a company’s culture, the importance of diversification, land-to-trust issues, the new Mohegan Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, the relationship between tribal gaming and Las Vegas, Mohegan’s expansion into the Far East, and Soper’s involvement in green solutions.
A key part of the discussion puts a spotlight on iGaming and the future of land-based gaming. Soper said, “We are all fooling ourselves if we don’t think that online gaming in any form, whether it’s lottery, sports wagering, or casino gaming as we know it, is going to continue to grow, and will, to some degree, cannibalize land-based gaming.”
