The Museum of Gaming History is growing and we need your support. The MoGH came to life in 2014 with the showing of exhibits at the El Cortez Hotel and the Mob Museum. We are working on showing several new exhibits in the coming year. The MoGH needs your support to fund these projects. We seek to grow the hobby by expanding interest in Gaming History.

Jerry Vergatos, LM-8093-241
Iím originally from New York City, but relocated to Colorado in my youth and have been there for the past 40 or so years. It was time for a change, so my wife of 30 years and I packed up and moved to Las Vegas. We are both excited to be here, we love the weather.

I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost thirty years. She has secured an accounting position with Bally Technologies. We have two wonderful sons who both currently reside in Colorado and work in computer information systems at an agriculture company.

As far as employment, I have run the gamut in both retail and food and beverage industry. I have owned over nine successful businesses including restaurants, liquor stores, delis, and a hotel. I was also in upper management of a group of Subway Stores, Cinnabon, and Furrís Cafeteria. Iím still deciding if I want to retire or continue in business.

My hobbies include casino memorabilia, coin and currency collecting and being a nuisance to my wife. I am on the Board of Directors of the Mercedes Club of America. I am also on the Board of Directors for Ability Colorado, a Cerebral Palsy charity. I also write the Memberís Corner column hoping to highlight our members.

I have a strong desire to help bring the Museum of Gaming History to fruition as I believe it will be our true legacy. The MOGH will create a positive showcase of our hobby and will bring new interest and members to our club.
