    How new is it? I could've sworn I saw a Sportsbook up there back in Dec. Was there another one there before?

    It's probably just because it's less frequented and in much better shape and more well kept than other books on the strip, it still looks new. Always get good service there but just too small of a book to sit and enjoy an entire game.

    It's been there at least a year because I remember walking in there and placing bets last May. So it's nowhere near new. And the club line does create a problem at times, but fortunately the overlap isn't very frequent. Not a big fan of this book, but not because of the club line clogging things near the entrance

    Like others have said this place is not new. I went to this book to place all my bets during the Miami-OKC series in the NBA finals and this was almost 2 years ago. Never had a problem with the marquee line either.

    I watched the Cowboys vs Redskins Monday Night Football game in September 2011 in that book. They had just opened a few weeks before. So, it's been there almost 3 years.

    I personally didn't care for the experience. Very stingy with the drink coupons. We ended up getting take out from China Poblano and eating it in there.

    That second floor Cantor has been there a long time, unless they moved it.

    There is the dinky Sportsbook(alomst closet size) on the main floor, but the 2nd floor has been there a LONG time.

    When I went in there before no one was in it, and three or four guys were behind the counter.

    dont want to hijack, but....

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of a Cantor book...I have never played in one, first I knew of one was the empty one at tropicana...not sure why its there if its always so empty...

    do they have good odds/spreads...is drink service good/bad/nonexistant...

    sounds like the one at cosmo is empty too, how do they survive? whats the draw for a patron? whats the draw for the casino? whats the draw for them to be at a casino?

    Cantor sports books are the worst of the worst sports books. I wrote a detailed Yelp review of the one at the Venetian a while ago. I can't wait for them to go away.

    Thanks. Mind you... that review was written about one and a half years ago, but I'm sure the experience is close to the same.

    Pros:
    They'll take your bet (what sports book doesn't?)
    Nice TVs (most sports books do as well)
    In-game betting

    Cons:
    -No drink tickets
    -No race sheets for horse bettors (at least at the Cosmo)
    -The in-game betting terminals are useless (touchscreen is not responsive)
    -The account set up is cumbersome and useless because of the terminals
    -The accounts between books aren't linked
    -The employees are useless unless you just want to place a bet (no technical assistance)
    -Sitting in a cubical watching a sporting event
    -It's hard for my friend to hang out with me unless he wants to move his chair into my small cube from his small cube
