Listen to this Gambling History blog post here


When presumed-to-be-wealthy mobster, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel, was slain at age 41, the estate he left was worth $35,609 (about $314,550 today).

Before his murder, Siegel co-financed and oversaw completion of the Flamingo hotel-casino in Las Vegas but ran up its development costs by several million and began bouncing checks.

In his earlier days, he was, among others, a bootlegger, hit man, thief and a founder/leader of Murder, Inc., the U.S. Mafia’s enforcement team.
