The book at the Palms Casino Resort is our favorite. The location and the many amenities nearby are just starters as far as attractions go. Plus, size matters. This quaint spot fits us well.
And it’s the Palms.
Hilton Is One Of Biggest And Best
There are plenty of good sportsbooks in Vegas. But we start off with the biggest and one of the best: the LV Hilton.
This is definitely the big daddy of sportsbooks. Just a few of the many amenities: More than 60 televisions, including 28 giant monitors and one massive 15×20 foot screen; more than 300 comfortable seats; 19 wagering windows; Nevada’s largest Sports Ticker; LED boards that display all the odds, games, futures and results; a newly renovated VIP Hall of Fame room with nine plasma screens. Private parties for high-end sports players also are available. The Hilton sportsbook was picked “Best of Las Vegas” by both the readers and the staff of the Review-Journal.
New Kid In Town At Aria
The Aria Resort & Casino, a major player in the incredible and massive City Center project, has a popular new sportsbook spread out over more than 10,000 square feet. There are 90 TV monitors located throughout and nine betting windows. Complimentary drinks are available for bettors. Another attraction is Skybox, a 102-seat bar and grill adjacent to the sportsbook. Food and drinks are available late night or practically anytime of the day.

You Can’t Go Wrong Here
It’s a nice and comfortable spot (and highly recommended), usually gets a good crowd and one that generates some electricity when the games hit high gear. The sportsbook is a 5,300-square-foot arena near Studio 54. How appropriate, huh? Bet while you play and hope you parlay it into something special. The sportsbook seats 104, has 36 60-inch and 24 42-inch high-def TVs. There also are four skyboxes, ranging from 300 to 325 square feet above the action with more TVs and a bitching sound system. Complimentary beverage service is available throughout the book. And they usually do a good job of timely serving them up. Munchies are available at the nearby Stage Deli.
Bellagio: Luxury With Some Of The Finer Points
A 5,600 square-foot venue with 150 state-of-the-art screens and 99 racing monitors for the horse players and one large racing screen, there isn’t a bad seat in the house. There also are 32 flat screens and other various monitors strategically placed throughout. Huge comfortable loungers add to the amenities and the feel of the high-rent district.
Caesars: One Of The Best Bets
Caesars Palace features one of the best books in Vegas. The views are impressive and visitors can catch a glimpse of the action from any spot in the book. With six 12×15-foot screens, a 20×50-foot LED board and 12 50-inch plasma screens throughout the venue, Caesars has been voted No. 1 by the Las Vegas Review Journal four years in a row. The book seats 140 and a 12-inch flat screen minotors are featured at every booth. Though it frequently draws a good crowd, Caesars is large enough to handle it with room to spare.
