Gaming Pioneer Memorial Opens

(Las Vegas, NV) — El Cortez Hotel & Casino and the Museum of Gaming History will honor downtown gaming legend Jackie Gaughan with the unveiling of a memorial exhibit. The display, titled “Jackie Gaughan’s Downtown as seen through Gaming Memorabilia,” will give onlookers the chance to experience the history of downtown with the inclusion of actual gaming artifacts used at properties Gaughan owned or had interest in.

Mike Quinlivan, Chairman of the Museum of Gaming History says memorabilia includes casino chips, tokens, dice, cards, shot glasses and more from the nine properties affiliated with Gaughan including the El Cortez, Las Vegas Club, Gold Spike among others. Photographs, montages and video will also play a role in the memorial. This is the Museum of Gaming History’s first mobile exhibit.

The display will be located in Jackie’s Club Cortez, which was established by Gaughan. It will be open for 6 months.
