Electronic gaming design and software development company Grover Gaming, has announced that it has surpassed a charitable milestone, with no plans in place to slow down the pace.

The Greenville, North Carolina headquartered firm has soared past the $100m mark in money raised for charity through its series of charitable gaming partners.

The huge sum has gone on to directly benefit those charities utilising Grover Gaming Electronic Charitable Gaming systems in New Hampshire, Kentucky, Ohio, North Dakota and Virginia in the past five years.

Those partner charitable and fraternal organisations represent hundreds of lodges and groups such as the Loyal Order of the Moose, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and many others.

Kevin Morse, director of market development for Grover Gaming, commented: “Electronic Raffle and Electronic Pull-Tab devices in these jurisdictions really enable these charities to flourish and provide for their core purposes, unlike those in states that do not allow electronic charitable gaming.”

Funds raised by partner firms through charitable gaming is used to benefit the communities they represent, and lessen the burden of those in need by funding family centers, hospitals, retirement homes, schools and other worthwhile causes.

“We are proud that our charitable partners have reached this incredible milestone,” explained Garrett Blackwelder, president of Grover Gaming.

“Seeing firsthand how their contributions benefit places like the Mooseheart Children’s School, the Eagles Diabetes Research Center, and so many others, keeps us committed to providing the most entertaining gaming experiences in the industry.”

Earlier this year Grover Gaming appointed Scott Henneman as its new vice-president of business development and governmental relations.

In the new role Henneman is to be charged with representing the company in its expanding role in electronic lottery and charitable gaming markets internationally, as it strives to deeps its roots in those two verticals, particularly within the US and Canada.
