Forward Thinking by Cantor Gaming, Sports Book Solutions by Steelman Partners

Las Vegas - The new state-of-the-art Cantor Race & Sports Book at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas kicked-off a week ahead of schedule. Steelman Partners' refined design took inspiration from the wall-street legacy of Cantor (an affiliate of the global financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald L.P) by emulating a stock-exchange trading floor, as well as integrating a striking shade of red to convey high-speeds that are created by both sports and European sports cars.

"Capturing the creative spirit of sport and technology, this facility presents a vision for the future of interactive sports viewing, and makes it fun again," stated Steelman Partners CEO, Paul Steelman.

Lee Amaitis, President and CEO of Cantor Gaming said, "We're committed to giving customers new and unique ways to bet on sports in Nevada. We have changed the way that people wager on sports for good by bringing the concept of sports trading to Nevada. We are very pleased to now bring our game-changing technology to this fantastic facility at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino."
