Make 2012 Lenny's Year

With the November issue, Midwest Gaming & Travel launches its campaign to have Lenny Frome inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame.

Las Vegas, NV, October 18, 2011 --( Every year since 1989, gaming professionals have honored colleagues who have distinguished themselves through significant contributions to the industry with induction into the Gaming Hall of Fame. Among the ranks of past inductees are such gaming pioneers as Benny Binion, Sam Boyd, Barron Hilton and William Harrah, and visionaries like Jack Binion, Don Laughlin, Craig H. Neilsen and Steve Wynn. All have had exemplary careers and are fitting representatives of the best of the gaming industry.

One important name however, is missing from the hallowed walls of the Gaming Hall of Fame at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. That name is Lenny Frome, the Godfather of Video Poker.

For those who knew him, Lenny was a friend and mentor. For those who read his books and articles, he was a diligent and perseverant instructor. Those who will learn about Lenny in the Lenny Frome section of the November issue of Midwest Gaming & Travel, will see why his name should join those listed above. Lenny Frome was first and foremost, by self-proclamation, the “PlayersPal.”

Every year the American Gaming Association solicits nominations, and then AGA staff and members of the Board of Directors make the final selections for induction into the Gaming Hall of Fame.

Right now, we have the unique opportunity to posthumously thank Lenny for all he did. And that’s where you can come in. Today, we can speak as one, we can tell the AGA that Lenny Frome should be among the other giants of the industry honored in the Gaming Hall of Fame. Together we can do it. Together we can make 2012 “Lenny’s Year.”
