Cantor Opens Hard Rock, Tropicana Books

Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of financial services giant Cantor Fitzgerald, last month celebrated the opening of its new, state-of-the-art race and sports book facilities at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the Tropicana in Las Vegas.

The new race and sports books feature Cantor Gaming’s signature trading station architecture and mobile wagering tablets, giving each patron access to multiple screens on which to bet and watch their chosen games, in addition to dozens of high-definition screens throughout the sports books. They also feature the manufacturer’s “In-Running” wagering technology, which allows patrons to wager on various propositions while a sporting event is in progress.

“We’re committed to giving customers new and unique ways to bet on sports in Nevada,” said Lee Amaitis, president and CEO of Cantor Gaming. “Our In-Running wagering technology means patrons are invested in the action from start to finish. We have changed the way that people wager on sports for good by bringing the concept of sports trading to Nevada, built on our 65-year Wall Street legacy. We are very pleased to now bring our game-changing technology to this fantastic facility at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.”

Cantor also expects to launch its “eDeck” mobile gaming system at the Hard Rock in the coming weeks, giving casino patrons the ability to play a variety of proprietary casino games, as well as bet on their favorite team, throughout designated areas of the resort, including HRH Beach Club, The Joint, Pink Taco and on the main casino floor.

The dual-level, 4,200-square-foot facility in the Tropicana is also being well received.
