Art Manteris Inducted to the Sports Betting Hall of Fame
Art Manteris, husband of Sue Manteris, is inducted into the Sports Betting Hall of Fame at a ceremony in midtown Manhattan, New York. Currently, Art is serving as Vice President, Race and Sports Operations for the Station Casinos. For Art Manteris, the honor could not have come at a more auspicious moment.
As the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s historic decision approaches, approximately 1,500 industry experts convened this week in New Jersey for a conference on the changing landscape of sports betting in the post-PASPA era. After a series of unfavorable court rulings over the last decade, Manteris had serious doubts that legalized U.S. sports betting would ever stretch beyond Nevada.
Then, one morning last May, the high court issued a 6-3 decision striking down a 26-year federal ban on sports gambling for the majority of U.S. states. Known affectionately as “King Arthur” by colleagues, the king of Las Vegas bookmakers finally witnessed the most momentous development in the history of his profession.
