This morning I was working on a guide to which sports book operator was in each casino for Covers.com (expect to see it in a few days).
One Vegas Strip casino was noticeably absent from the list – Casino Royale. The home of $1 Michelob bottles was devoid of a space to wager and watch sports.
Coincidentally plans for a sports book at Casino Royale were revealed this afternoon. William Hill will be operating the new Casino Royale sports book that will be tied into a sports bar in the center the casino.
William Hill currently operates only one sports book on the Vegas Strip at SLS Las Vegas. Details are limited but here’s the press release for your information. I’ll have more information as it’s revealed.
This Casino Royale sports book could become a great destination for low rollers on the Vegas Strip.
