The Best Las Vegas Sportsbooks & Race Books


Aria Sports and Racebook
Aria’s sports book is one of the largest on the Las Vegas strip, measuring 10,000 square feet with designated areas for horse and sports players alike to enjoy the action. The diversity of high-definition television monitors and displays are noticeable, including a pair of 220” screens that are the biggest of their kind in the city. Visitors are mostly tourists, as professionals are disappointed in the inability to monitor the odds in the main seating areas.


Caesars Palace Sports and Racebook
Caesars Palace is one of the more expansive properties on the Las Vegas strip and the sports book fits the bill in that regard, offering plenty of room for patrons to stretch out. One of the main strengths of this area is the ability to handle a large volume of visitors, as it has 13 betting windows available, while also offering private windows for horse racing players. Professionals consistently visit due to the knowledgeable management staff that caters to their every need.


Wynn Las Vegas Sports and Racebook
Luxury is certainly the main objective inside Wynn’s sports book, as the seats are some of the best in the city to relax in. The decor exudes class at every turn, but many big-time players are often frustrated at the betting window due to the staff’s reluctance to accept large wagers that fit the extravagance of the rest of the property. Professionals are often asked for their player’s card, something that they often lack due to not playing table games at the establishment.


Golden Nugget Sports and Racebook
The Golden Nugget Las Vegas is definitely going for a country club-style in the downtown area, accomplishing that task with a great display of game action and betting odds at every turn. The book has made a name for itself in releasing its college football game of the year lines in June, something that makes it an attractive place to visit for Nevada residents and visitors before the action gets started on the gridiron. Another strength is its claim of having more TV’s per square foot than any book in the state.


The Mirage Sports and Racebook
The Mirage Race and Sports Book is one of the more inviting venues for sports bettors on the Las Vegas strip, but misses the mark in terms of big-screen televisions, as they are outdated in comparison to other sites in the city. The comfortable seating area is hard to beat, while the horse racing area has 150 individual desktop monitors to service every need. Betting odds are easy to read and viewable from all areas inside the book.


Mandalay Bay Sports and Racebook
Mandalay Bay has the ability to handle a large crowd with 300 seats available, while also catering to professionals with enclosed VIP luxury boxes. The action is certainly right in front of you, which is nice for people that have wagers spread across a number of games, with 17 large-screen televisions strategically placed. It's definitely the place to be if the property is hosting a major boxing or MMA event in its expansive events center.


Planet Hollywood Sports and Racebook
Planet Hollywood's top priority is entertaining its guests and visitors, but the sports book is functional for recreational bettors. The venue is also located in a great spot in terms of functionality, as it’s located just steps away from the Miracle Mile Shops and the strip. Professional bettors are happy with its location, as it sits across from the Aria and Cosmopolitan, providing a quick and functional location to line shop.


MGM Grand Sports and Racebook
The MGM Grand is a great place to watch the day's biggest game, but you’ll definitely want to secure one of the venue’s 104 seats, as it misses the mark for standing room areas. If you’re looking for luxury, the VIP treatment that’s found in the “SkyBoxes” is hard to beat, as they comfortably sit eight to 10 guests in an elevated setting above the main floor. Betting odds are displayed in an effective manner, joining over 40 televisions on the main wall.


Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Sports and Racebook
Formerly known as the Hilton around town, the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino still delivers to visitors and residents in the area. The SuperBook has gained notoriety for having over 30,000 square feet of space for recreational and professional bettors alike, which are drawn to the area on a weekly basis during the football season due to its SuperContest. You can’t go wrong in visiting this establishment, as it caters to a sports bettor's every need.


Red Rock Casino Sports and Racebook
If you’re looking to get away from the Las Vegas strip and place some sports wagers, look no further than the Red Rock Casino, as it’s state of the art sports book is one of the more comfortable spots in the city. Sports bettors will benefit from the user-friendly layout, as everything is viewable from each seat in the area. Station Casinos does a great job to cater to sports fans, which is why this is one of the best venues in Sin City.
