The choice is simple, The Venetian and The Palazzo now offer the premier sports betting and wagering experiences on the Strip."

The new race and sports book is now open after the completion of a three month multi-million dollar refurbishment project spanning approximately 10,000 square feet. It promises an unparalleled sports trading environment boosting high-quality visual entertainment with the installation of one of the world’s largest high definition 4mm black video screens dedicated to multiple sports games and races. In addition, the state-of-the-art venue offers surround sound, a sleek design and the largest number of carrels in any Cantor Gaming race and sports book.
