“Due to our relentless focus on the player, customer support, and product innovation, we have been tremendously successful over the past year and the coming year will be even better,” said Alan Mizelle, CFO of Grover Gaming.

Grover Gaming, recognised as one of the fastest-growing companies in America by Inc. magazine earlier this year, is said to be considering several possibilities for the necessary expansion of their facilities.

“Lotteries and charitable gaming markets in this country are experiencing a digital revolution, and Grover Gaming is uniquely poised to capitalise on this opportunity,” said Garrett Blackwelder, president of Grover Gaming.

“To do that, we will be more than doubling the size of our game studios over the next year. We have to further expand our staff and capabilities in our software engineering, 3-D game studios, and customer support divisions, as well as increase our ability to service future markets.

“We are already seeking additional professionals in our core areas. So, in order to accommodate the new employees, we are evaluating our options in the brick and mortar part of the equation.”

Grover Gaming develops software, game content and gaming systems for lotteries and charitable gaming jurisdictions, and is licensed in Ohio, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Washington, Ontario and The Commonwealth’s of Virginia and Kentucky.
