I was hoping I could get some info from either locals or people who have been to sports books in Vegas lately. I will be flying in on Saturday and my group wants to watch the games at a sportsbook on the strip (even though we are staying downtown). I know that many MGM and Ceasars properties have gone to a pay for reserved seating model.

Are there any decent (read big and comfy) books on the strip where we can watch the games from like a couch without paying a fee? I do not want to sit in some miserable straight backed chair for 3 hours.

Thanks in Advance.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Harrah's has booths and Mirage has various, cool seating arrangements. Both seem to be open a lot, and I've definitely sat in them without any special reservation or fee. Mirage would be my first choice if I knew for sure that seating would be available.

They are across the street from each other and close to TI which might be worth a shot as well, and the Venetian where parking is free.

Matters might be complicated by football, though. Everyone wants to be there at the same time.

The Trop is smaller but follows the standard Cantor model, which is a jigsaw of high def screens and big, comfy chairs, but using a traditional sportsbook format. i.e. the chairs are all in a row, behind individual screens. So it's not one of those deals where you have a little couch or nook. However, I'm pretty sure i've NEVER seen that book full, and they also have free parking.

If you watch games after they already played it's super empty. Mondays after midnight usually is a good time

Lagasse's Stadium at Palazzo is a great place to watch the games while eating and drinking. Although it is not a sportsbook, they show lots of games and have good food too.

Yeah, but my brother requires that it is a big book.

Does it have to be a couch or can it be a comfortable seat?

That seems silly. In Nevada you can bet sports anywhere within the state if you set up a mobile account.

I figure he means big book as in one with higher limits. You ever try betting on the Boyd app? It's like they're trying to win as little as they can.
