As with every new Cantor Gaming sportsbook you get those ugly red work stations and office chairs to go along with big, bright and beautiful HD TV screens in a setting that's perfectly lit. Since the Silverton space isn't as large as the Venetian, for example, the TV screens aren't as big. To scale, the TVs fit perfectly. Due do the dark ceiling above and dark earth tones of the casino, the TVs are also very bright.
This is one of the few Cantor Gaming sportsbooks that isn't enclosed in its own private space. The Silverton sportsbook feels as if it's a part of the casino with just a small, half wall separating it from the slot machines. The size is similar to the Palms sportsbook with seating for about 100 people. Unlike the Cantor Gaming sportsbook at the Palms and Venetian, however, there is no bar. If you'd like a drink, you'll have to walk to the center bar which is about 200 feet away. If you're in the mood for coffee, there's a Starbucks and, if you're hungry, you can grab a burger at Johnny Rockets which are both located opposite the bar.
Earlier this year, the poker room at Silverton, located in a private room next to the sportsbook, was closed. A new poker experience is on its way. And, while it isn't open yet, we snuck in to grab a couple of pictures before it was entirely roped off. As you can see, the new poker room at Silverton is very red. Very red. Everything is red. The poker room is only five tables large, but there is ample room so that players aren't bumping into each other. There are a few large TVs to keep players occupied in between hands.
We're told that the poker room at Silverton will be open before the year is over. We'll keep you updated. The new sportsbook and poker room fit Silverton to scale perfectly. Both are excellent additions to Silverton which is rapidly becoming this writer's favorite off Strip casino.
