Asked if Cantor had put in the application to the NGC, Cantor Gaming Marketing Director John Buyachek was unsure at press time but did say the company is definitely equipped to run a sports book.
"I don't know," Buyachek
said of the application filing.
"We have the staff that has run sports books within the state of Nevada so the answer is we are prepared for that," Buyachek
"That's not a problem on our end."
And Buyachek doesn't see any bumps in the road in getting final approval from the NGC in a couple weeks.
"I don't see any [problems]," he
said that the possibility of Cantor Gaming
- which will reportedly share revenue with the M Resort
as a third-party operator of the property's sports book - of running more sports books in the future and getting eDeck into other casinos is still to be determined.
"I don't really know," he
said of the possibility of becoming a major third-party player in the marketplace in the Silver State like Leroy's Sports Books
"I don't think we're thinking too far ahead of ourselves in saying we don't know because we want to make sure - again, it's a step-by-step process.
We can dream what-ifs and what-ever and at the same point in time I can't honestly tell you that we've gone way beyond."
"It's about integrity.
And we're very judicious again," Buyachek
"I know I use the words 'judicious' and 'integrity.' but it's a step-by-step process.
And the Nevada Gaming Control Board and [Nevada Gaming] Commission … are all about both of those."
So it's simply a matter of doing what you can, when you can in this evolving marketplace according to Buyachek
"But we also don't want to get ahead of ourselves too - you can go to step B once you complete step A," he
