Las Vegas Sports Book News – Free Drinks are No More at the Golden Nugget Sports Book

Word gets out quickly in Las Vegas sports book land and now it is confirmed that Golden Nugget free drink tickets will become collector’s items. What is arguably the best sports book in Downtown Vegas eliminated free drinks at the sports book right around at the start of football season. The Golden Nugget sports book now joins CG Technology sports books (Cosmopolitan, Venetian, Palazzo) as one of the few sports betting shops in town that do not offer free drinks to sports bettors.

This really is too bad as the Golden Nugget sports book is one of the old standbys as far as sports betting downtown goes. Albeit a tad tight when free drink tickets used to be offered, you could still score a few with a friendly request and a tip. Hopefully this does not start a trend amongst Las Vegas sports books – especially those downtown. It would be surprising however as the majority of sports books downtown are under a larger umbrella (Boyd, William Hill, etc.) and not independent like the Golden Nugget.

The Good Old Days – Golden Nugget Sports Book

I really liked the Golden Nugget sports book and I will probably visit again – great screens, friendly staff, and an overall well-run sports book. But if corporate decision makers can’t justify comping a bud light to a sports bettor betting $50-$100 on a ballgame, I will take my betting money plus any cash I would have thrown into a video poker machine to another spot on or close to Fremont Street.

  1. Have to take my money elsewhere. I guess buying the Rockets was too much. What other amenities will be taken next. Sad

    The horse bettors will be very upset…
