I'll be staying at the Flamingo this weekend with some friends and we are looking for a good sportsbook to bet at. Maybe "good" is a bad adjective. Oh well. I've been to the sportsbooks at MGM and Mandalay Bay and have enjoyed both. I prefer seating that allows you to sit with friends and talk rather than sportsbooks with individual betting stations. Is there any place on the north part of the strip that has a similar layout to Mandalay? Even if you've never been to MGM or Mandalay, what's your favorite sportsbook on the north strip?


Yes I've searched and read about a similar thread regarding this subject. However, the subject eventually got derailed and it didn't answer what I was looking for.

I would consider LVH (old Las Vegas Hilton).
It really is something to behold. It is HUGE with screens everywhere, many beting desks, some private areas in the back, more than enough seating and a large amount of future wagers as well as all the sports and horse racing under the sun.

It really is a fun sportsbook.

Mirage is always fun as well!

It is more center strip, but both Mirage and Caesars Palace are good. I like The Mirage the best

I should've said north and central strip because Flamingo is in the middle. My mistake. Thanks for the post. That's two votes for Mirage.

I would think Mirage is one of your better choices. Lots of group seating like mandalay. I have a soft spot for Mirage as that's where I made my first ever sports bet...lol

And if you can get a spot at the Venetian Sportsbook bar, that's also a good place to be if you are wanting to drink for cheap while watching. Screens are great and you get a good view from the bar. Just tip your bartender well, and bet a machine slowly. They have never asked me to up my bet which at times has been as low as a quarter. Depending on the time though, it might be difficult to get those seats together.

Harrahs had a nice sports book bar.

The absolute worst sports book has got to go to ballys.

You may want to check out Lagasse Stadium at the Venetian.

I enjoy the Mirage a lot, Flamingo isnt too bad, yet small.

I would avoid Lagasse stadium, horrible service, high prices, sometimes a cover, depends when you go.
