Remembering Jackie Gaughan
Remembering Jackie Gaughan

Listen
AIR DATE: March 13, 2014

One of the last surviving legends of old Las Vegas has died. Jackie Gaughan once owned as much as a third of the casino properties in downtown Las Vegas. For a time, his casino empire included ownership in eight hotels including Union Plaza and Showboat. However, Gaughan is most closely associated with the El Cortez - a casino he bought in 1963 and owned for more than 40 years.
