Just like going to a ballgame, you’re guaranteed to see something new every time you’re in Las Vegas.
A lot of that can be chalked up to the size of the city and its vast entertainment offerings, but it’s also because Las Vegas resorts are constantly reinventing themselves, and Palms Casino Resort is the king of reinvention.
The 17-year-old property just west of the Las Vegas Strip is in the midst of a highly publicized $620 million makeover. As more visitors and locals start to rediscover the “new” Palms, its already popular CG Technology Sportsbook is becoming the hot spot for game- (and people-) watching.
The Finest Seat in the House
Palms makes the most of its sportsbook space, with nearly 120 seats and couches throughout. If you want to watch the ponies, you can ask to have your own betting station reserved, and they’ll gladly set aside space with a sign that has your name on it.
There’s even room for you to bring your best pals and watch the game from a roped-off space that includes couches and bar tables. So feel free to settle in and kick back for those long Saturdays and Sundays.
By far, the most appealing seat in the house is a glass-encased private lounge with couches and your own screens. The lounge diverts a lot of eyes on big game days, but we’ll get to that later.
Screens Like You’ve Never Seen
Do you remember the days before high-definition TV? It almost feels like the dark ages, where you’d have been better off sitting at home alone watching a game instead of straining your eyes to make out player names and numbers in a casino.
This CG Sportsbook showcases the newest generation of LED technology, with more than 1,200 square feet of visuals wrapping around the north wall. You’ll never miss a second of the day’s biggest games and races, and the odds board are located right in the center of the action, so your eyes don’t have to stray far when you’re watching.
Something to Please Your Palate
It’s always been easy to find something to eat nearby on game days at Palms. The Eatery, featuring Earl of Sandwich, Chronic Tacos, Panda Express and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, among others, is just across the way from the sportsbook.
But thanks to its aforementioned makeover, Palms has added some new dining options that you can conveniently call on when your stomach starts to rumble.
Is it halftime already? Order up some Asian delights from Send Noodles, or satisfy your cravings at Lucky Penny (open for breakfast, lunch,and dinner). Even more restaurants will be coming in the next year, so you’ll never run out of options.
In a hurry to get back to your seat? No problem, just bring your food with you and enjoy.
You’ll find a fully stocked bar located at the entrance. It’s the perfect place to do some people-watching, and Palms has plenty of it.
The casino has been a haven for celebs since it opened back in 2001, and on big game days the sportsbook private lounge fills up with VIPs. With so much happening at Palms, it can be hard to keep your eyes on the game. If you’re distracted by a celeb sighting, pulled into a movie at nearby Brendan Theaters or need to leave your seat for a dinner reservation or concert, at least you can always wager on the go using the CG app.
