    Hello All,

    Thinking of making a quick trip to vegas to watch and of course bet on the NCAA championship game. How are the crowds during this time?

    Also, are the pools open yet? I cant remember if they open up in March or April.

    Thanks,

    Pools are open. As for crowds, I have not been there during the championship game in the past, but friends have told me there aren't really any big crowds

    Ive been there the last couple final fours and championship games, crowds are no more than normal! Most folks come out for the opening weekend or sweet 16 weekend of the tourney, many more games to bet on! Also this season the game falls on the day after Easter so I am expecting a smaller crowd than normal! We will see, Ill be hitting wheels down about 230p saturday!

    Thanks for the responses. I totally forgot about it being Easter weekend. Guess that would explain the ridiculous low prices.... :drunk:

    Never been for NCAA tournament final but I'm gonna be there Monday night as well... Got a comp night at MGM and another at a crazy low rate. Guessing/Hoping the crowds are going to be low.

    ^^^^This^^^^. We were there for Final Four and the Championship Game in 2006 or 2007. It was just like a normal weekend, no craziness like MM opening week. I'm addicted to the rush of the opening week, so we probably will never again go out for FF/Championship.

    The tourney is great - the Final Four and Championship games, not so much.
