The Sports Betting Hall of Fame has announced the names of five inductees who will be added to the lineup next year at the Betting on Sports America conference in New Jersey, organized by SBC.
The inductees are:
- Raymond Lesniak, former Senator New Jersey
- Jay Rood, COO, Bet.Works
- Roxy Roxborough, legendary Las Vegas oddsmaker
- Victor Salerno, president, USBookmaking & US Fantasy Sports
- Sara Slane, former senior VP, American Gaming Association
They will be welcomed into the Hall of Fame at a special ceremony during Betting on Sports America, being held once again at the Meadowlands Exposition Center April 28-30, 2020.
Sue Schneider, SBC’s vice president of growth and strategy, said the second edition of the U.S.-based inductees represents a number of stalwarts from the sports betting industry.
“All five of these individuals are among the trailblazers of sports betting in the United States,” she said. “From operators, legislatures, oddsmaker, and industry advocates this group also shows the depth and breadth of the overall industry within the U.S.”
Delegates at the conference will have full access to the induction ceremony. Full details of the event will be released at a later date.
Last year saw Art Manteris, Dennis Drazin and Chris Christie inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Manhattan that also featured NFL record holder and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Morten Andersen.
