Art Manteris inducted into Sports Betting Hall of Fame

Art Manteris, Vice President of Race and Sports Operations at Station Casinos, will be inducted into the SBC Sports Betting Hall of Fame, as the industry prepares to celebrate his contribution to sportsbook development in Nevada.

With over 35 years of Nevada race and sportsbook expertise, Manteris was responsible for the development of the state’s first computer networking of race and sportsbooks in the late 1980’s, and has acted as a prominent policy contributor to a number of regulatory boards.

The Hall of Fame ceremony is being held on 25 April 2019 at Sky Room in Manhattan (330 West 40th Street) and is part of the closing party of the biggest dedicated sports betting conference in the US – Betting on Sports America – which is being held at the nearby Meadowlands Exposition Center in New Jersey.

Former NJ senator Chris Christie was confirmed as the first new member of the Sports Betting Hall of Fame last month, with Manteris the second to be announced.

Manteris has a very colourful history in the world of sports betting having played an integral role in developing and overseeing Station Casinos’ 16 new or remodelled sportsbooks.

Rasmus Sojmark, Founder and CEO of Sports Betting Community, said: “We are really pleased to be able to welcome Art Manteris to the Sports Betting Hall of Fame. So many people in the industry had good things to share about Art given his longevity and legacy in the sports betting industry. He will be recognized as a key driver of sportsbook development in the US, including on mobile, and prominent contributor to gaming regulation across the country.”

Manteris added: “Technological development has played a key role in furthering sports betting across the US, and I am glad I was able to play a role in that. I am delighted to be recognised by the sports betting industry for what we have built in Nevada and look forward to seeing what the future holds for the U.S. industry.”

The purpose of the Hall of Fame, first established by SBC in 2016, is to honour, preserve and perpetuate the names and outstanding accomplishments of personalities who have added true value to the sports betting sector.

The Hall of Fame’s esteemed members are Mark Blandford, Carsten Koerl, Howard Chisholm, Paris Smith, Fred Done, Vigen Badalyan, Pontus Lindwall, Fabio Schiavolin, Warwick Bartlett, Norbert Teufelberger, Constantinos Antonopoulos and Chris Christie.
