Boulder City Podcast

Nevada's most interesting small town


Podcast With Art Manteris, Former Director of Sports Betting, Station Casinos

The legalization of sports betting in the U.S. following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018 brought many new players into the game. But it also focused attention of people who has been involved in U.S. sports betting in the one legal jurisdiction—Nevada. Art Manteris arrived in Las Vegas in the late 1970s, working at such legendary books like the Stardust, Caesars, Westgate (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, and finally 20 years with Station Casinos. Manteris is a contrarian when it comes to sports betting and understands the realities of operations. Even though he’s retired from the casinos, Manteris plans to stay engaged in the industry. A resident of Boulder City for many years, Manteris appreciates this small town even more now in his retirement.
