Las Vegas Sports Book News – Monte Carlo Sports Book Moving…But When?

The state of the existing sports book at the Monte Carlo definitely has the feel of a place that will be seeing its final days soon. On a recent visit, the sports book was closed at 8:45 pm on a Friday night. There was a college football game still going as well as a couple of NBA games. The faded large screen in the middle of the sports book was showing a rodeo event.

For the past couple of years, the Monte Carlo sports book has been rumored to be closing, moving, or expanding. The Monte Carlo resort itself has already begun its transition into two separate casino properties – Park MGM and NoMAd. The “Park” project by MGM, that connects restaurants and bars to the new T-Mobile Arena, has been completed for over a year now as well. So what gives with the sports book that is located in an area that potentially can become quite a place for sports bettors given the new surroundings?

Well, the Monte Carlo sports book is indeed moving. “When” is still up in the air, but “where” is now confirmed. After being rumored to be moving to the Pub/Brewery, which was shuttered several months ago, it is confirmed that the sports book will indeed be moving to the old Pub/Brewery space. There is ample room in the old Pub space, with large windows overlooking the new pool area that is being constructed as part of the aforementioned re-branding of the Monte Carlo. The timeframe is still unclear, however my guess is that the existing sports book will stay in place until Spring 2018 and the transition to the new space will occur in the summer, to coincide with the estimated finish of the Park MGM/NoMad project.

MGM has a golden opportunity to create a unique sports book in a great space located in an area that will be full of sports fans. Dare I say, a signature location that perhaps tops Aria and Bellagio, which are MGM’s jewels as far as sports books go. We’ll find out in the next 12 months.
