The biggest and the best
Skyboxes are an excellent way to watch any sporting event. I loved watching baseball and earning money on the Nationals! The only thing that makes me sad about this place is that people were actually betting on final scores of NFL preseason games officiated by replacement referees. That means that 22 year-old guys who will be out of the NFL next week and maybe even working here or a referee who can't tell whether Arizona or Atlanta is playing can make one mistake and cost you hundreds of dollars.
Honestly, I wanted to stage an intervention for these bettors. Wall of TV screens is a positive. Uncomfortable chairs and spotty service are negatives. Small enough space that it probably gets crowded for major events. I give it a three - just make your bet, go have fun and come back to see if you won. Small for such a large casino, competent staff. Lots of passing thru foot traffic.
The MGM Grand sports book features three big screens and approximately fifty smaller screens. Awesome location to watch college and pro football games and hopefully win some money on parlay and straight up bets. The big screens are reserved for the best football games and you can sit in one of the leather seats, drink a cold beer and watch games morning till late afternoon. Great customer service for setting up your bets.
Get there early though because the lines can get long especially right before kick-off. On this weekend I watched many customers win on the 49ers and Packers and I was one of the too!! I wanted to watch a Lakers game in here and was lucky to snag a seat. The seats are decent but their sort of uncomfortable.
The joint was packed full of people and everyone seemed into the game. I don't bet or anything like that so I can't speak for the betting system. The beers are good and came in a KA Cirque du Soleil souvenir cup. I usually end up spending a lot of time in casino sports books because of the anal rippage I receive from the Pai Gow dealers. I love this sports book's layout. Only four rows deep so even if you forget your glasses you get a great view from any seat.
A great sports book to place your wager and relax. Three huge 16x12 broadcasting the most popular games, thirty six 60" plasmas, twenty four 42" plasmas, forty nine 15" color TVs for race book wagerers.
Ton of TV's but I will say the wait staff is few and far between to be found on busy events. They do have a cash bar in the middle. The sportsbook is also directly across from the lion habitat I actually didn't spend much time in here on my last trip, but Diane did bet on a few horse races while I was in a Poker Tournament. The first thing she mentioned when we met up afterwards was how nice she thought the Sports Book was.
With that endorsement from a Vegas Newbie, I think they deserve another 5 Star rating! Mostly isolated from the gaming floor and not as smoke heavy as that at Caesars or Venetian there is simply a nice vibe to this place that has only been improved by adding TAP across the way.
Admittedly crowded at most times and a bit of a hassle when the Hakkasan line begins to develop I guess one can look at this as a pro or a con depending on how vested they are in the game; those cheering for the favorite and happy to check out the velvet rope eye candy should be quite happy. Only downside is all the homeless sleeping in the chairs in the early morning. They are both filled with loud noises and they are generally not set up all too well.
Seating is a bit odd as all the chairs seem to give you a look directly up at TV's and every time I sit down I feel like I need to visit a chiropractor directly afterwards. You can get better odds and a better experience elsewhere. At least go to NY NY and have a beer at their sports bar. Some of the worst future odds in town. I could not believe that the Wynn was substantially better versus They just have basic future bets so I went to Wynn to get my Dancing with the Stars bet in.
This might be my favorite sportsbook on the strip. The sportsbook is also directly across from the lion habitat. I actually didn't spend much time in here on my last trip, but Diane did bet on a few horse races while I was in a Poker Tournament.
