    A Visit with Wynn Las Vegas Sportsbook Head Honcho John Avello

    Just a few weeks ago, we had our latest segment with Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook manager, and CYInterview regular, John Avello.

Whether it is football, basketball, boxing or even golf, the veteran oddsmaker always has an interesting perspective on Vegas sports gambling action. During a trip to Las Vegas earlier this week, we had the pleasure of meeting John at the Wynn sportsbook (see our photo above.) We discussed the week's college football games and a little history about the Wynn Las Vegas’s top shelf place to watch sporting events.

    Bookies and bookmakers are the people who take bets on sporting events. They are usually thought to be men. Back in the 1980s and 1990s, Marisa Lankester was one of the few women working in what might be termed the bookmaking industry, taking sports bets and grading them as wins or a losses. In the United States, it is illegal to partake in sports betting outside of a regulated establishment, like a Las Vegas sportsbook. In 1986, Ms. Lankester went to work for Ron “The Cigar” Sacco. The media has called him one of the most successful people in that industry. At the end of his operation, before authorities got involved down in the Dominican Republic and shut it down, the FBI reported that Ron’s operation was taking in over one billion dollars a year.
