I'm heading for my third Vegas trip in a few months and, for the first time, I intend to spend a bit of time in the Sportsbook.
Betting on sports in the UK is easily done with a bookies on every street and mobile betting apps (a bit too easy at times!), whereas it's always appeared a bit of a different affair to me in Vegas.
My questions are:
-What's the etiquette in the Sportsbook in terms of placing bets (do you go to a cashier at a booth, for example?) I've seen those with individual screens; what are they for?
-What kind of bets are standard on US sports? I'd probably be watching basketball, so is it similar to over here where you can bet on points spreads, winning margins etc...?
-Are there minimum amounts you need to bet on games?
-Do you have to be gambling to watch games in the Sportsbook?
-Can I take drinks from elsewhere (craftily secured from minimal slot action!) into the Sportsbook?
Apologies for naivety, but I'm determined to enjoy the experience without seeming a total novice at the time! Please feel free to direct me to websites which might give me some more insight, or to give any other tips from your combined wealth of experience!
Thank you all in advance
