Stating last Thursday, September 8th, Lucky’s Sportsbook at the Riviera Hotel is providing football fans and bettors with an outdoor walk-up betting window, the first in Las Vegas Boulevard and also the first offered by any Las Vegas casino. Lucky’s President and CEO Joe Asher said the window gives gamblers the chance to view betting lines and odds for NFL and NCAA football games before placing any wagers, a service that has been well accepted among players and football fans.
“The new book is in a great location, the heart of the property, and we look forward to contributing to the excitement of the casino floor with a great product for our customers at the Riviera,” Asher said in a statement.
Asher said Riviera Hotel and Casino President and CEO Andy Choy came up with the idea of installing a betting window, and added the walk-up window has generated a lot of buzz. “We think it’s really going to be successful for us” Asher said.
The window is located near the Riviera sports book, which offers customers high-definition televisions, individual carrels for horse players, as well as other services and amenities. Additionally, the Riviera has designated short-term parking for locals accessible from Las Vegas Boulevard.
