Power Players: Keith O’Loughlin and Benjie Cherniak
Executive Vice President, Sportsbook
Managing Director, Don Best
O’Loughlin has stepped up the U.S. sports betting presence of Las Vegas-based Scientific Games, known mostly as a $3 billion provider/operator of brick-and-mortar and online casino games. A deal to provide its OpenSports platform to Caesars’ brick-and-mortar sportsbooks in at least seven states was key, as was the acquisition of Don Best, an oddsmaking and real-time betting information service headed by Cherniak.
