Our Culture

It’s not often you get the collective expertise of over 100 years of experience with “the little guy” benefits; that’s the case at Next Gaming. Founder, visionary and renowned gaming businessman, Terry Caudill, saw a unique opportunity to expand his 800+ employee parent company, TLC Casino Enterprises, and launch this unique slot product company dedicated to working with customers to develop value-oriented solutions to strategically complement your casino floor. That means we are dedicated to achieving success together at every moment of the relationship and your success matters! We have the resources, expertise and desire to make a difference with your best interests in mind; something you won’t always get from the “big guys”. Having a vision is not enough. You need a strategy to achieve that vision, along with the personal attention you deserve. Enthusiasm and caring are what allow ordinary people to do extraordinary things; we are here to help.

"We deliver great products to great people who
want to maximize growth and revenue."

- CEO, Mike Darley
