Last night, we interviewed Steven Prentky, a long-time professional gambler who moved to Las Vegas in the 1990s to embark on a career in sports gambling. His is a fascinating story of personal discovery–having learned poker at age 8 he started playing card games, followed by his interest in sports which led him to analyzing and handicapping games during his teenage years. By the time he reached college, Steven knew he was ready for real action and the big leagues so he moved to Las Vegas. He met with early success, winning the prestigious Las Vegas Hilton SuperContest in sports betting in 1994 and pocketing $100,000 in prize money. He placed 2nd in 2006 and has averaged 63% in twenty years of playing in the contest. For our interview, Steve provided key insider knowledge on what it takes to be a successful sports bettor, how the industry has changed over the years with the growth of offshore books, and how to navigate today’s sports betting landscape and deal with social media and internet hype.
