    We are arriving in Vegas on SB Sunday and there is an offer from the Orleans which includes

    "Big Game Day" Party includes 1st Class Stadium Feast and Beverages."

    You were supposed to stay Feb. 1,2,3 but I arranged to have tickets set aside for pick-up Sunday.

    Never been to this particular venue for their BIG PARTY but wondered if anyone on the board had or heard any details. It is "by invitation only" and you were encouraged to respond quickly as it was expected to "sell" out. It was an offer that was free.

    Just wondered if they would have betting windows set up just for this event (is that typical?) and what 1st Class refers to above....thanks in advance for any input / insight.

    (Looking at the prices of the other BIG GAME PARTIES and with this being free I am happy, just curious)

    it does not but i appreciate the effort. I will have to take some pics as best as possible (not knowing what is what) and write a brief TR as to what I find. It would appear with as many Boyd customers as is on the board someone would know an inkling. Could be the first year and could be also the first year I was invited to an annual event. Anyways, it is free and seems to be less of a "line up and wait"....we shall see.

    I am staying @ The Orleans. Will I have to make reservations for the conference rooms or just be there early enough?

    We're staying at the Orleans in April, so if you could give us an update on the state of the hotel, the rooms and the gaming. Please see if there is $5 Ultimate Texas hold'em. Thanks, much obliged.

    Did not notice it last time but wasn't looking for it. I will look and see what limits are on Weekend and during the day weekdays. I will include it in the trip report when I return....

    I would not expect private betting windows to be set up,but judging this on Gold Coast experience..If it was invitation only maybe free food is involved and soda,keg beer..

    This will be my third year attending the Big Game party at The Orleans...Past two years had buffett food line-up plus beer, liquor also available at no charge. In addition, they had stations open for betting in the ballroom. Have fun.

    Thanks. You are the first (obviously reading the post) who has experience. The host at Orleans said it would be fun (which would include betting windows I would assume as it would NOT be fun to run to the sportsbook to place a half time wager). Hopefully it will be an exciting game.
