The Mirage Updates Its Sportsbook
When The Mirage opened in 1989, its sportsbook became the first "mega" sportsbook in Las Vegas. This became the sportsbook which all other sportsbooks would try to become. There were great betting options and a great atmosphere. The Mirage sportsbook is rather large with a variety of seating, but if you've been there in the past few years, you may have noticed how out of date it feels. Well, that's changing. The sportsbook at The Mirage is going currently undergoing a metamorphosis into a 2013 book.
The Mirage is currently installing Sony HD TV screens in the sportsbook. In addition, Las Vegas Advisor is reporting they just added an 85-foot wide and 16-foot high display. The timing couldn't be better with March Madness just a few weeks away. This couldn't come soon enough.
This writer really likes the sportsbook at The Mirage and has spent many hours there, but has always been very underwhelmed by the television screens. Thankfully, all that is changing. It looks like we have a new place to watch baseball this summer.
