John English

John English has been in the sports betting business for decades. For that reason, he’s moderating the sports betting session at the UNLV Gaming & Hospitality Education Series on October 25. English and Vic Salerno, who is also on the panel, developed the first mobile sports betting platform when they were with a company called American Wagering, which was later acquired by William Hill. English understands the relationship between sports betting and casino operations and explains how it can be a boost not only to the gaming revenues, but also to the casinos’ non-gaming output. Because of his experience, Global Market Advisors is one of the most sought-after consultants for casinos looking to install sports betting. To register for the October 25 session of the UNLV Gaming & Hospitality Education Series, which includes a session in esports, visit www.UNLVGHES.com. English spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the GMA offices in Las Vegas in September.
