In January 2023, Global Gaming Business (GGB) Magazine, the international casino industry’s premier trade publication, named Earle G. Hall one of 25 people to watch globally for his work in digitalization, cashless, responsible gaming, and anti-money laundering technology.

Hall is the President and CEO of AXES.ai, Vice-Chairman of the International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA), and a board member of the Government Blockchain Association. A career technologist who is often cited as a futurist and expert in several different fields of technology, he’s given TEDx speeches on human behavior.

Every year, GGB compiles a list of global gaming industry trailblazers; inclusion in the annual roundup is one of the most prestigious honors in the profession. GGB is a division of Casino Connection International, LLC, hailed as the gaming industry’s complete source for business information. Past accomplishments and potential for impact on the future of gaming are considered during the lineup’s selection process.

“It’s a true honor to be named amongst so many outstanding trailblazers and pioneers in our industry,” Hall says. “Our industry is in a pivotal, historic moment, and the list of the 25 People to Watch is but one testimonial of the movement to evolve our Industry to a much safer and fun place for entertainment.”

Each year’s selections are made by the GGB Editorial Advisory Board, involving some of the most perceptive and prominent figures in the gaming industry. Nominees come from all facets of the gaming business, including land-based and online operators and suppliers, regulators, attorneys, tribal government officials, public officials, academics, and more. This practice serves to recognize that exceptional people operate not just in one exclusive industry segment or tier, but across the board.

“I am so grateful to all those I have served and led as they have offered me the challenges and the opportunities to become who I am,” Hall says, noting that his organizational mission is to cultivate and evolve his team while building cohesion and a strong corporate culture. “My deepest passion is to bridge the science and holistic realms of humanity to inspire all those I can to the possibility to become the best version of themselves to live a happy and purposeful life.”

Given Hall’s accomplishments, organizational values, and leadership record, the honor comes as no surprise to colleagues contemporaries, whom he credits for his success. “When I received this nomination, my only request (was) that it be perceived as me representing my incredible team and their belief and support in my vision. A vision is just a dream without a strong team to materialize it.”

For the past decade, Hall has helmed AXES.ai, a world-class Fintech company present in more than 40 countries. The AXES Cloud comprises four platforms: Cashless, Loyalty and Engagement, Business Intelligence, and DooH Media. AXES Fintech integrates the entire cashless digital workflow from open to closed loop, cashier, kiosks and the flagship all-inclusive Butler player APP. AXES Media boasts a highly engaging interactive media experience to broadcast publicity, ads, information, clickable content and is fully integrated with the AXES Cashless Experience. It is leading the transformation and digitalization of the global land-based gaming industry. The advantage of its technology is that it can connect clients to any type or  number of machines and location size, enhancing performance and profitability. AXES empowers governments, casinos, and route/street with real-time Internet of Things (IoT) data collection, actionable information, and fully integrated cashless applications.

“AXES is the intersection of the empowerment of IoT, such as Apple, with the infinite power of information correlation, such as Salesforce” Hall says. “The future of our industry depends on real-time everything to make timely and accurate decisions, and that is what we do.”

With its devices, AXES streams data from more than 40 countries, making sense of billions of pieces of player, machine, time and space data to create value, increase revenue, and enhance player engagement. The future of AXES, its strategic planning, management, and vision to utilize and foresee how the innovation of technology drives the gaming industry remains its priority.

“We are on the cusp of an AI-driven world,” Hall says. “Our company, by design, was conceived to be ready to make that quantum leap to real-time prediction so that our clients can be the most competitive, safest and with the highest customer satisfaction.”

Hall has been re-elected to the International Gaming Standards Association (IGSA)’s Board of Directors, where he serves as a strong advocate and voice for the association’s vision to pilot leading-edge and state-of-the-art solutions for the gaming industry. Its mission is to facilitate the implementation of results that empower suppliers, operators and regulators with the highest level of perfection, performance and innovation through partnerships and education.

“The IGSA is a pillar of our industry’s evolution,” Hall says. “Our industry needs standards and protocols to evolve safely as technology becomes more and more complex, and IGSA is the organization that is leading, educating and developing these needed standards. I am so grateful to be a part of this fine organization and all that it stands for.”
