    I'm kind of wondering where they are going to put it in there but it does sound nice. (quotes credit Steve Chaffin the lines)

    Stevens will introduce three new sportsbook and entertainment venues throughout his downtown Vegas properties. The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino will serve as a prototype for the new developments, which will feature a multi-level venue and stadium-style seating. The Golden Gate is also expected to feature the largest single screen television in the city and numerous other HD screens and personalized customer service kiosks. The company is also developing a mobile sports app to complement the entire project.

    Says the D will get one too;

    After the Golden Gate facility is complete, sports venues will also be built at the new 18 Fremont project and then at the D Las Vegas, which serve as the hub for the sportsbook.

    Reading a bit between the lines here but two before the D means what the D won't get it till after the construction is over. I would have figured the 18 Fremont to be his signature property.

    Opening the first two books before adding a facility at the D will allow the company to perfect its system and service to customers before building at its signature property, Stevens said. The company is taking sports betting seriously. The book won’t be outsourced to another company like William Hill. It will instead be an in-house project.

    The idea of providing a sports show in a casino studio I like and that 10% ownership could be profitable for Stevens;

    Along with the three sports facilities, Stevens’ company will be building a new studio for VSiN (Vegas Stats and Information Network) at its 18 Fremont property... Stevens, who also purchased a 10 percent interest in the network, said the network will continue to broadcast from South Point. The new studio will allow VSiN another option for programming and allow bettors to check out the in-depth news, analysis, and statistics from some of its experts first-hand. Fans and visitors will be able to watch and interact during live broadcasts. He also said the network has plans to open a studio in Atlantic City in the future as well.

    Thanks for the info. This might have been mentioned in previous reporting, but has there been any timetable announced yet for the building/opening of the sportsbook at the Gate?

    I am very confused.

    Where on Earth would a multilevel sports book go in there anyway?

    Who knows. Maybe behind the now included bayou site? It is technically two floors.

    Sounds great. As far as I'm concerned, the only thing downtown lacks are some nice sports books. This will be a reason for me to start staying down there again.
