The Book at the LinQ Hotel + Experience (now one of nine Caesar entertainment properties in Las Vegas) celebrated its official grand opening Thursday afternoon. Completed with an appearance by NFL Hall of Fame winner Terrell Owens, it is not a typical sports book with a giant screen, private seats with small monitors, and long lines of ticket offices. Instead, the book is more like a giant living room – or, as Owens describes it, “a man’s cave with steroids.”
Just off the strip, there are 87 TVs sprayed across more than 11,000 square feet of the property’s ground floor, of which it can be divided into more than 130 screens, including what Caesars claims is the strip’s highest-resolution LED video wall. The comfortable leather sofa can seat as many as 200 people. There are Xboxes, augmented reality games, special odds screens showing the betting rates of Caesars properties in Nevada, a self-made Moscow mule, and a self-beverage tap wall with 24 beers. Using a personal tablet, you can make your next bet without getting up on your seat, change the channel from one of your personal TV monitors, or order a wing basket from a Sticky Chicken Food truck, which is delivered by a server that had to pass rigorous tests to prove its sports knowledge to serve as a true book ambassador. 카지노사이트 순위
“This is what we think is the arena of the future,” explained Matt Kenagie, senior director of strategy development and enterprise gaming at Caesars Entertainment, as soon as the NFL Thursday night football game began, looking at The Book and watching T.O.s poses for photos and autographs. “What we’ve done is reinvent the old school sportsbook model. We’ve integrated what people like about stadiums and stadiums, and their favorite things about the living room and even their living rooms. We’ve taken all of those characteristics and created what we feel is the race and sports experience of the future.”
The Book’s main drawing is its 12 Fan Caves, which has seats up to 10 people and a 98-inch TV that can be divided into four screens, all with adjustable audio zones on your personal tablet. There are also 49-inch TVs, Xbox gaming consoles, and virtual reality headsets. Prices vary depending on the day and time of the year, but for your information, renting a cave from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for this Sunday’s NFL game costs $50 for 10 people, in addition to a minimum of $750 for food and beverages, not including taxes and tips. Reservations can be made online.
“Feedback has been great,” Kenagi said about the caves. “We found that sports fans want to take control of their environment, which makes it possible. Xbox has been very popular so far.
