    A group of us are headed out to Vegas for NFL kickoff weekend. We are hoping to find a few good VP bars with multiple TVs for watching the game and get a few free drinks. Bonus if they have video four card keno (my fav).

    Any suggestions?

    TIA

    WORD. This is it. My Halloween weekend trip will be my first exclusively downtown and this is where ill be parked for footballs.


    Caesers has great TV views but trrrrrrrrrible pay tables. Aria has a great bar that likes to babysit and limit how often you can get a refill.

    Bellagio is my only strong strip recommendation.

    The Venetian has the best screens and great views if your wanting to play some VP. Paytables stink but they stink everywhere now.

    Do they comp drinks at the Long Bar if you are playing VP? On trip advisor there is a review that implies that is not the case.

    There is a back bar at the Gold Coast I know has keno on the machine and possibly? 4 card. The games are on but they are tv's over the bartops that show them all but tough to follow all at once unless at a table.Best thing is is that you don't have to be there at 8 am to secure seats at the bartops like most of the strip VP bars and sportsbook seating..
    It's not the fanciest of places for sure but might fit the bill and the book is pretty liberal with drink tickets..
    Otherwise on the Strip or even the Rio get there super early to find a seat.. Good Luck...I'll be at the Orleans for the first time and not taking any chances 8 am by the latest.I got left out at GVR last year of a good seat at 9 am or so..

    I've always enjoyed the semi-circle VP bar out in front of the Mirage books. You can usually see a number of the big screens as well as the smaller TV's around the bar. You still get the excitemen of the book cause you are right there but can also play some VP/keno and get boozed up. Spent about 8 hours there a few trips ago sat night into sunday morning and we even ordered monster sandwiches from Carnegie deli and housed them with a few small breaks in our play and the bartenders were keeping us replenished well.

    What game do you play? For the average TV views, I remember the pay tables being awful (ie 1 for 2 pair bonus poker)

    Don't have a particular game that I frequent, sort of hit and run a few different ones. The payables definitely are not optimal but when I needed to slow play and watch the games for a while, the barkeeps were fine with it. I typically watch the games more on the book's big screens than the small ones at the bar.

    They are awful, but bonus actually is the best game at the mirage sports bar. 30/6/5 (96.18%) followed by 7/5 DDB (95.71%). Their base paytables are the same garbage CET strip properties offers now (except TAG Lounge). For great TVs though, Venetian is tough to beat. And they do have one mediocre game 6/5 Super Double Bonus (96.87%). But I've never attempted to go to these places on NFL Sundays though.

    I like the Mardi Gras at Orleans too and was able to get a seat during week one last year right before the late games. 7/5 BP, 9/5 DDB w/prog. They also have decent craft beer selection there as well.

    Mardi Gras bar is good with good pay tables. The sports book is right there also. Tring, what craft beers do they have? Usually when I play there I just do a couple shots of Jamesons.

    Although not sure if it was there last time I was there, they had Dogfish 60 minute at one point. And Coronado Islander IPA and Tenaya Creek Hop Ride (a Vegas local). I wasn't too impressed with the last two though. Overall there were roughly 20 taps. I didn't ask about craft bottles...maybe I will next week. :evillaugh
