Sportsbook Review: Cosmopolitan Sportsbook, Las Vegas

The Cosmopolitan Hotel Sportsbook has seemingly found its place – both inside and outside the resort.

The current version resides near the exit closest to the Las Vegas Strip, capturing the attention of patrons on foot with its seemingly endless wall of games. But the atmosphere separates itself from others with pool tables and a scene that feels like a regular bar or lounge, which matches the hotel’s overall vibe.

MGM currently operates the gaming for the resort. But the sportsbook was recently outsourced to Caesars and prior to that, Cantor Gaming operated the book when it was located on the second floor.

The sports bar is open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. P.T. and serves pub food and nearly any alcoholic drink. It has comfortable seating on all four sides of the bar with a continuous ticker mounted on the wall, displaying up-to-date odds and scores. From the bar, you can view the main LED wall that will display all the biggest games. The right side of the venue is dedicated to horse racing with 10+ screens. 

One of the downsides is that most betting windows are closed during the week, although with the continued use of the mobile app, the wait is virtually nonexistent.

The casino itself is 100,000+ square feet in size. There are 1,300 slot machines as well as table games, bars, and two high-limit rooms. The table games mostly consist of the favorites like blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and craps. 

While this sportsbook and casino might not be the biggest, it truly feels like Las Vegas. You can have all the benefits of a sportsbook and bar, while still getting the elaborate party feel. This is definitely one of the best spots in Las Vegas and if you’re on the strip, you won’t be able to miss it.
