Sports book question

I am wondering if there is an audio feed that one can use to listen to different sporting events that are displayed on the screens in a Sports Book while sitting in your chair and enjoying a cold beverage. Or is the sound all muted?

Thanks for your help.

I don't think the sound is completely muted...I can hear horse races and games in my head when I picture a sports book. I think they have the sound on very low, and if you're sitting near that particular screen you can hear it better. I don't think they have low sound on EVERY tv at once, just the main ones.

So there is no way to plug in a set of headphones to listen to my specific event or switch back and forth between my chosen events? Or any other way to hear my event (s), on my cell phone or something?

Usually sportsbooks have a sound feed of one game - the most popular one it seems. I bet if you request it to be turned up, the will do it for you.

Why do you want to hear the sound?

As Save said they usually have the sound for one game on, whatever is the most popular. That is at least my experience when i go in sept and oct for the football season.

I enjoy hearing the commentary on sports events and when at home, often flip back and forth between games. It would be nice to be able to watch several events at a sports book and be able to listen to the ones I choose.

I think it sounds like a great idea...rent headphones like on a plane. But I don't think anyone has done it yet.

You would need an individual TV so you would have control. Racebooks have these, sportsbooks do not. Although check out Cosmopolitan. I walked into their sportsbook before they opened and it looked like it might be possible there.

BTW: Wynn is my wife's favorite racebook. One of the reasons is because she can bring headphones. plug them into the TV, and tune out the world while enjoying the races. But this is only in the racebook, not the sports side.

You're kidding, right?? Why would you NOT want to hear it??? Everything is so much better when you can hear the play by play and commentary, instead of trying to guess what just happened on the field or why they just got that penalty or why that player just got ejected, etc., etc., etc. And unfortunately, I don't think there's any way to listen in on a particular game, unless they have the individual TV's for you.
