    Big news about the Sportsbook plans! He's right about that corner. For whatever reason no one plays there.

    Yup, I remember going over and checking out the Sportsbook.

    On the main floor was this small secret area of a tote board behind some wall.

    Then, traipse on up to the second floor to this holy crapola small room of a Sportsbook with some not so enthused employees, and I did not even bother with it.

    You're thinking of the betting window at Book and Stage. Both are gone now, although I would never have called it a secret

    They needed to get more gaming space in the main floor, it's the only thing I don't like about Cosmo. I've wandered around and there's still vast unused space on the 2nd and 3rd floors, I wonder if they ever thought about moving all the HL stuff up there, there's probably good reasons not to.

    They don't appear to be adding gaming space though, at least not on the 1st level. They're taking up a huge chunk of space with the new sports book. I assume this must be what they're building in the corner near the strip, where they had that Lucky Cat thing for a while, along with some machines and way too much open space. I didn't notice any signs up inside the building talking about this new space, so I was wonder why they had so much of it walled off. Then over near the checkin area, they're adding the Clique lounge where they used to have Book & Stage. They're taking up more space with the new lounge than B&S took, so even more gaming space will be lost.
