Best Soprtsbooks in Las Vegas
It’s no surprise that Las Vegas offers a plethora of ways to gamble and it certainly does not fall short in the sports category. Below, is a list of what we think are the best sportsbooks on the Las Vegas Strip, and close to it. Therefore, if you are traveling to Vegas and want to bet on or even just watch sports in an upbeat atmosphere, these are our recommendations (our number one pick is the last one on this list).
MGM Grand Race & Sports Book
The MGM Grand Race & Sports Book is probably the smallest sports book on this list. However, do not let that deter you from this sports book. The size of the area actually seems to add to the energy and experience, especially during large events. The sportsbook offers three large screens and a variety of smaller ones that cover all of the main games. Seating typically fills up rapidly, so if this is the destination you want to reach, arrive early.
Planet Hollywood Sportsbook
The Planet Hollywood Sportsbook comes as a surprise to many whom did not know it was there. Planet Hollywood is the home to a small sportsbook that yields an intimate setting to watch and bet on a variety of games. There is a limited number of good seats here, so if you plan on showing up on a busy football day or for march madness, you will need to arrive early.
Wynn Race & Sports Book
The Wynn has never been known to cheap out on anything, and their sportsbook is certainly no exception. The sportsbook design incorporates televisions circling 180 degrees of the room so games can be seen from all angles. Even the seats were built for convenience, they have USB and electrical outlets in them so you will not have to worry about running out of cell phone battery while you are there. We must include as well that the cocktail service is wonderful with servers coming by every 5 to 10 minutes to check in on you. Finally the clientele, upscale locations such as Wynn typically attract a stuffier people, so if that is not your scene then you should probably not opt for this sportsbook.
Mirage Race and Sports Book
The Mirage Sportsbook has come a long way since it opened. Not that long ago the seats were uncomfortable, and the atmosphere was dreary. Nowadays however, the sportsbook has been upgraded with great seating, a new VIP area, TV’s and much more. The property is now a top spot for people to go to get their sports fix.
However, not all of the changes are for the better. If you do not know, Mirage is owned by MGM. Starting on Super Bowl week back in 2018, MGM, across all properties, no longer gives out free drink tickets for free. You now only receive free drink tickets with each $500.00 bet. So, MGM now not only holds the the title for having the worst betting odds in Las Vegas, but they now also hold the record for the worst drink policy too.
The Book at the Linq
The Book at the Linq opened in September 2018, as a modernized sportsbook. Guests are offered a unique experience with fan caves, huge televisions and even options to play Xbox. Reserving one of these fan caves is a phenomenal experience but will certainly cost you on major game days. The cost on a normal day is a $500 minimum food and drink order, of course your are welcome to spend more if you would like. Also, The Fan Cave seats up to 10 people with Xbox for up to 6.
Additional outstanding features of this sports book are, build your own Moscow Mules, a self serve beer bar featuring 24 varieties, tablets to place wagers and order drinks and a food truck inside.
Venetian Race and Sports Book
The Venetian Rand and Sports Book has one of the largest screens in Las Vegas at 10 x 100 feet, capable of showing 42 different games simultaneously. This sportsbook currently has 118 luxurious personal betting stations open 24 hours a day, powered by CG Technology.
Caesar’s Palace Race & Sports Book
The Caesar’s Palace Sportsbook was renovated recently to the tune of about $1.5 million. The renovation made some major improvements to the sportsbook and it really shows. Just like Planet Hollywood, the Caesar’s is very generous about giving out free drink tickets. You tend to receive the drink tickets for about each $125 bet. The only downside to the more generous free drinks is that the service can be painstakingly slow.
Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook
The mecca for sports bettors is by far the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. The monstrous place takes up over 30,000 square feet of heart racing action. Sports and races are are displayed on a massive 220 foot by 18 foot 4K video wall. No other sportsbook in Vegas, or anywhere, even comes close to the SuperBook. Simply put this sportsbook is absolutely incredible.
