    Hi all,

    Looking to hear your thoughts on the Mirage sports book? Is it nice or would it be worth our time to walk to another nearby?

    Also, do they offer free drinks at the Mirage sports book?

    Thanks for the help.

    It's OK. Fair amount of comfortable seating. Decent number of TV. But it wasn't particularly exciting last time I was there for Final Four. Drink service barely average. And the sports bar behind the book isn't the most comfortable place to enjoy a couple of games.

    One free drink with minimum bet for major events - you get a yellow slip to redeem for your drink. Not sure what their policy is for horse racing or slow days.

    Can't say I have a recommendation for another book - look forward to the responses for my future visits.

    I like the Mirage sportsbook. Good size and atmosphere.

    Don't know about drinks.

    The book is fine, maybe above average in terms of size and comfort. But you are a simple walk across the strip from Lagasse's Stadium which is arguably the best sportsbook atmosphere.

    It's average. Lots of tv's. Mediocre service and the vibe there is a little flat.

    I'd walk to legasse if I was looking for a great place to watch a game.

    I think its very good. But because of its age, it was deisgned in a day that horse racing was more important. So its set up more for them than sports watching. But the sports area has big, comfy chairs. Last time I was there, they used drink coupons and the waitress service was relatively decent. Can't remember how much you had to wager to get a drink coupon, but I typically wager more than $100 per game, multiple games at a time, and they gave me plenty of coupons

    I was told it depends upon the event. IIRC $50/coupon for Final Four.

    The last time I gambled there was May of last year. And it was during the week and slow. So not sure if it was $50 to a coupon or less. Whatever it was, they handed me more than I could use

    sportsbook is good size, good seating and TVs

    I was just there 4th of July-Thru the weekend and made my UFC bets there. Kind of a slow time for sports betting, only MLB and horse racining really going on. I bet $120 on the fights and got 1 free drink coupon, which I redeemed at the sports book bar later that night. The teller said usually $125 on sports is 1 free drink, $5 on horse race is 1 free drink. Seems a little out of whack, but if you were gonna just sit and chill/drink, might as well take some action on the ponies
