Five new US members for Sports Betting Hall of Fame

The Sports Betting Hall of Fame will see five new US-based members inducted next year at the Betting on Sports America conference in New Jersey, organised by SBC.

The Sports Betting Hall of Fame recognises industry legends who have made an outstanding contribution to the betting and gaming industry over their careers. 

The five new inductees into the Hall of Fame 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 American Gaming Association Sr. VP

They will be welcomed into the Sports Betting Hall of Fame at a special ceremony during Betting on Sports America, which is being held once again at the Meadowlands Exposition Center across April 28-30. 

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. From operators, legislatures, oddsmaker, and industry advocates this group also shows the depth and breadth of the overall industry within the U.S.”

Delegates to the Betting on Sports America conference will have full access to the enshrinement ceremony. Full details of the event will be released at a later date. 

Last year saw Art Manteris, Dennis Drazan 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.
