Cantor to Operate Palms Sports Book

Leading race and sports book operator and supplier Cantor Gaming announced a long-term agreement to operate the race and sports book at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, beginning in the first quarter of 2012.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cantor Gaming will build a new race and sports book that offers signature Cantor features such as in-game proposition wagering and mobile betting across the entire resort, including hotel rooms.

Cantor Gaming will operate in the existing race and sports book area through the 2012 “March Madness” NCAA basketball championship tournament. Construction of the new race and sports book will begin in April and is expected to be completed in time for the 2012 football season. During the interim period, Cantor will operate an ancillary sports-only book near the Mint High Limit Lounge located on the main floor of Palms.
