Art Manteris Steps Down

Art Manteris Steps Down

There are few sportsbook operators who have lasted as long in the business as Art Manteris retires. As the head of the sports betting operations for Station Casinos in Las Vegas, where he spent 22 years and will continue as a consultant, Manteris was renowned for his knowledge of sports betting, the art and science of setting lines, and a comfortable understanding of how the business has changed in the last few years following the legalization of sports betting in the United States.

Manteris started his career in the late 1970s as a ticket writer at the Fremont Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas. He later moved to the Stardust, one of the legendary sportsbooks in the day, to operate the manual odds board, where he had to physically move numbers for bettors to check their wagers. Later he ran the “Superbook” at the Las Vegas Hilton (now the Westgate) and Caesars Palace—again, both important books at the time.
