Sports Wagering

When John Gaughan started LVDC in 1988, some of the very first employees were recruited from Las Vegas Race and Sports Books. Currently, about 40% of the operations team has experience from behind the counter. This group includes former sports book executive Vinny Magliulo. For 14 years Vinny was Sports Book Director at Caesars Palace and later opened the Race and Sports Book at Wynn Resort. Vinny is also a co-host of My Guys in the Desert with Brent Musburger on the VSiN Network. Over the years Vinny has offered consulting and assisted in many projects by sharing his knowledge gained from experience.

The LVDC Sports Book operation began in 2014 when John Gaughan purchased an interest in Hotel Nevada in Ely, NV. John requested from the NGCB and was granted a license to operate a sports book and the first live sports book opened in Ely, NV.

Foreseeing the legalization of sports betting nationally, John and Jay formed National Sports Book Management, Ltd. for the purpose of bringing our message of offering a fair and honest solution for companies outside of Nevada to add sports wagering to their properties. Over the past three years we personally visited potential properties and invited many to our office and the South Point to meet face-to-face to discuss our philosophy to better understand the wants and needs of potential clients.

Longer than any other company, since 1992 LVDC has and continues to support Tribal Gaming Race Books with hardware and software maintenance along with full service accounting support. Prior to opening, LVDC offers full training for ticket writers and book personnel along with accounting training at our Las Vegas office. Our technical, IT and software team has experience setting up operations throughout the country and world and can handle any size project. After the equipment is installed, onsite training takes place and support is there through the opening.

Even with all the talented people at LVDC, John wanted to take it a step higher to offer the absolute best sports betting product. Who better to turn to than his father, Michael Gaughan. Michael is a sports book pioneer and one of the most successful operators in the history of Las Vegas. For over 40 years, sports books were an integral part of all the Gaughan properties and that continues today with best book in Las Vegas at the South Point Casino.

The LVDC-South Point venture is now servicing the sports books at Buffalo Thunder Resort Casino in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the first sports book on the west coast at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City, Oregon, and Route 66 Casino Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
