Hard Rock Taps Cantor for Race/Sports Book

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has entered into an operating agreement with Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of leading global financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald, to serve as the exclusive race and sports book operator. Cantor Gaming will initially integrate its state-of-the-art “In-Running” technology into the casino’s existing race and sports book, with the aim of launching upon regulatory approval.

Cantor’s In-Running wagering system allows proposition bets to be placed throughout during an event or game, on numerous different outcomes and with the lines constantly changing, up until the final whistle.

Hard Rock will begin work on a new race and sports facility with Cantor Gaming, slated to open in spring 2011. Earlier this year, Cantor Gaming and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino agreed to install the eDeck mobile gaming system at the property, to be rolled out upon regulatory approval.  On approval, wagering methods will include Cantor’s wireless system, so patrons will not be physically bound to the sports book.
