The Las Vegas Review-Journal listed Michael "Roxy" Roxborough number two on its list of most influential people in sports of the 20th century, as well as one of GQ magazine's '50 Most Important People in Sports.'
Roxy came to Las Vegas romanizing about living the life as a professional gambler in 'Sin City,' but in his 30s he wondered if gambling was sustainable as an actual career? So, in 1982 he founded the world's top oddsmaking firm, Las Vegas Sports Consultant. Roxy also became part of the team that set the opening line for the Stardust, the most import and influential betting line in the 80s.
Roxy serves as a instrumental voice in the film not only framing the life of a gambler, but communicating America's view towards gambling and how technology has changed the game for the gambler and the sports book.
Today, Roxy splits his time between Las Vegas and Thailand. He runs his families investments, gambles on sports and horses mostly wagering via exchange betting, and remains a trusted voice in the sports betting world.
