Downtown Las Vegas Football Guide

Navigation: Las Vegas Football > Downtown

Downtown Las Vegas has several good football spots. It is a great place in Las Vegas to get to know the basics on betting on football. There are mixed feelings when it comes to talking about each of these casinos in terms of the experience. You can have a great time betting at the Golden Nugget and the Plaza. Golden Gate should be just be overlooked.

Also, the California offers a small, yet comfortable place where a great time can be had, as long as there are few people. The same can be said about another small and quaint downtown property, The D Las Vegas; it only has 20 seats for its bettors to use while they watch and bet. In Downtown, there are none taht offer large enough quantity of seating for important football events, like March Madness or the Super Bowl.

One aspect of Downtown Las Vegas gaming is that the casinos are seasoned. This makes them adhere to their original layout, making the space available for football betting quite limited.

Downtown Las Vegas Football


California focuses on small crowds of bettors when catering to football. Bettors will be limited to 40 seats and 18 TV’s. They are only offered cash as a payment option when betting. This is quite consistent with how other downtown Boyd Gaming properties are run.


Fremont uses the same Boyd Gaming downtown setup. Bettors are limited to 42 seats and 30 TV’s. They are open pretty early at 6:30 am and open until 12:30 am.

Golden Gate

Golden Gate is rated as the worst. They focus mainly on their casino games. They use an automated kiosk for betting. They have 3 TV’s that are set up near one of their bars. Bettors that are looking to bet and enjoy watching will probably be disappointed. There is no real football betting experience to be had.

Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget is a great place for everyone and anyone. Bettors can place their bets, as well as sit at any of the 100 comfortable seats. They have61 TV’s, making it enough to cover the entire floor and allow anyone to stay tuned with the games. It is located deep inside the casino, with a great space just for sports betting. Golden Nugget has one of the best football experiences in the city, as it is highly rated among bettors; its reputation makes it a great place to bet on football.


Plaza is a good place to bet on football, as they have just recently remodeled. Bettors now have access to 75 TV’s. It now has its own closed off section on the casino floor, making it private. With their improvements, football betting has become extremely popular, making it a great for football fans to visit.

The D Las Vegas

The D was originally named Fitzgeralds. It is closely related to Golden Gate, but is on a different level. It has a certain feel to it like many of the other football experiences. During the day, football betting is open from 8 am to 9 pm most days. Bettors will have trouble finding an open seat with only 20 to pick from. They do have 9 TV’s that can be used to watch the football games, but they only cover a small area.
