The Vegaster 7: Top 7 Sportsbooks in Vegas
Golden Nugget: On the smaller side, with room for only 100, the sports book inside of the Golden Nugget is perfect for the guy who wants to watch the Superbowl, play by play. Placing bets is easy and fast, and the seating like your lazy boy back home.
Mirage: The Mirage boasts some of the largest wager limits in Vegas, if your piggy bank allows. Not to mention some of the coolest sportsbook betting techno stuff we’ve ever seen, like individual self wagering terminals. It may be a bit bigger, but you still won’t miss a pass with 10 big screen T.V.’s scattered around the room.
Wynn: The Wynn puts class in sports betting. The décor is super chic with leather swiveling armchairs (I bet your lazy boy can’t do that) strategically placed to watch the big game from. More of a gentleman’s club than sports book, Superbowl Sunday at the Wynn is like Thanksgiving dinner at the White House.
MGM Grand: If you have big betting plans for the Superbowl, then place it in the sports book at the MGM Grand. Here high rollers get to see the game from sky boxes overlooking the floor and with direct line of sight to the 60 televisions placed all around the room.
Caesars Palace: Caesar’s has a long standing history of being one of the best sports books in Vegas. This is more of the classic sports book layout with stadium style seating all facing the dozen 50 inch plasmas. With a more generous betting allowed here than most of the other books around, you are going to find it full of die hard betters on game day.
Planet Hollywood: You can bet that while placing your bet at the Planet Hollywood sports book, there is going to be a party going on. While designed perfectly for betters, the sports book at Planet Hollywood is also notorious for the revelries it has going on during big games. If you want more action than what’s happening in the game, pop a squat in one of their leather chairs and let the games begin.
*The playing field has been upgraded with Ringer bar and Restaurant. All the gaming, now with great food just steps away!
Lagasse’s Stadium: Only go to Lagasse’s if you don’t care how the game is played. This sportsbook is more like an oversized entertainment center. The sportsbook does what its supposed to do, and then you can spend the rest of the time trying out great food, better drinks and one of the best party atmospheres you are going to find that Sunday on the strip.
Our adventures into sports books showed us that there is even a large variety here. We found the serious spots where one WTF at the ref may get you kicked out, to those where the sports action was just a backdrop to the party. Take your pick for this seasons Superbowl in Vegas and get ready to see the game like you’ve never seen it before.
