After the war, he completed his education and began his storied career in real estate development.

They built the first themed hotel/casino, Caesars Palace in 1966 and later Circus Circus. Mr. Mallin was honored in 2019 by being inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame. An honor he received at the age of 96. Upon receiving the honor, he quipped “I was worried when I first heard about this, I thought oh! I’m being indicted, luckily younger ears prevailed.” As a generous philanthropist, he and Sandra built the Sandra and Stanley Mallin Early Childhood Center at Temple Beth Sholom in 2000 as well as supporting many local organizations. “He was a gentle, unassuming, quiet man. One of the truly great pioneers of Las Vegas.” Donations may be made in his name to the Stanley and Sandra Mallin Early Childhood Center at Temple Beth Sholom. Services were previously held at Temple Beth Sholom, 10700 Havenwood Way. Interment at King David Memorial Garden.
