When the Hotel Nevada first announced that they would be opening up a sports book, the promise was that local Ely patrons would have its own betting lines unique from Las Vegas and that their feedback would influence betting options.
Three weeks after taking in its first bet, the Hotel Nevada Sportsbook is already proving to be a success .
And according to Las Vegas Dissemination Company Director of Sales Jay Vaccaro, it is already making changes based on demand from bettors.
“It has been a success so far. I think our customers are really enjoying it and it has been good for the hotel,” Vaccaro said. “We’ve heard from a lot of players that they wanted 10-team parlays off the board, so just this week, we cleared it with Nevada’s gaming board and now bettors can place a 10-team parlay from right off the board.”
While that might just sound like insider talk to those that don’t regularly place a wager on a team, the quick turnaround for new betting options seem to be living up to the book’s original promise.
But how about the other half of the promise, the part about having unique betting lines?
According to Rick Richards, vice president of the hotel’s operations, that part has been working out to. The live sports book has already seen more play from bettors since opening less than a month ago than the previous sports betting machine did in an entire year.
“I am very happy with the way that the hotel’s employees have been receiving the sports book and it seems that the players in the casino are also very happy with it as well,” Vaccaro said.
The sports book is just the latest in a series of renovations that have been added to the Hotel Nevada since the Gaughan family became co-owners earlier in the year.
