    5 of us are headed to town for the BCS title game Jan. 7. One guy already has 4 dimes at +160 for Alabama to win it... I think at Paris, and of course he did NOT use his players card.

    We'd like to watch it at one of those casino hosted parties... Any insight on if they are worth it, and how to get invited?

    Generally speaking, you can score invites to any of the casino sporting event parties either by receiving an offer from corporate marketing or go through a host.

    I was in Vegas a couple years ago during the Bama/Texas title game and the sportsbook was definitely busy, but nowhere near as busy as mid-season NFL sunday. I assumed that was because the game was on a weeknight adn there was no west coast team involved. Guess I am saying that you can probably score a book seat just by showing up early

    I'm not sure they do the parties for the BCS game. If they do, it's certainly not as common as for the superbowl. I get invites to most all of those types of things, and I've never been invited to a BCS title game party.

    Because it's a Monday night this year, I'd look at the places that are currently doing Monday Night Football type things -- it would make sense that they would continue those. Also, because it's a Monday night, I think there's a very nice chance you could get set up in one of the better sports bars and just pay as you go (as opposed to a single price, all you can eat party, like the superbowl.)

    The following mLife Sportsbooks were doing drink specials for MNF when we were there mid-October: Aria, MGM, Mandalay Bay, Monte Carlo. It's likely the other mLife properties are running similar promotions. I posted the promo details in a live post from October 15.

    Thanks for the insight everyone.

    I'm relieved to hear it won't be swamped!

    I, too, was in Vegas for the Texas-Bama game a few years back. The Strip was empty in terms of people and interest for the game. I heard nothing of casino parties. The only thing that was closed for a party was the then-new Emerille Lagasse sportsbook, which was closed for a private party (I guess someone bought the whole thing out for the night).

    If I recall correctly, hotels were a little pricey, and I seem to recall that was because a major convention was either opening or wrapping up around the same time. That could hurt hotel prices (think closer to weekend rates than weekday ones), but the sportsbooks and sports bars are not likely to be crowded.
