Aria Sportsbook Review
The Aria Resort and Casino is located in the heart of CityCenter on Las Vegas Boulevard. It’s one of the most luxurious destinations on the Strip — with thousands of suites, multiple pools and a modern sports book. The Aria Express, a free four-car tram ride, helps visitors move about this spectacular landscape.
- Open 15 hours a day, every day throughout the year.
- Like most books on the Strip today, it’s smoke-free.
- Very comfortable seating. It’s like watching the game at home — even better.
- Plan on walking a distance just to find the sports book.
- If you’re new to sports betting, it’s sometimes difficult to get help on how to place a bet.
- No expert opinions or analysis on any of the games.
Aria Las Vegas Sportsbook
MGM Resorts International placed its biggest bet ever in 2009 when it completed the $8-billion CityCenter Las Vegas and its centerpiece property called the Aria. Everything about this complex is luxurious — even its sports book.
CityCenter is the most expensive private construction project in U.S. history and is co-owned by Dubai World.
In the midst of the 67 acres of hotels, shopping centers, residential towers and restaurants stands the crown jewel in the Aria, with its hotel rooms and suites and 150,000-square-foot casino floor.
In the opposite corner of the casino from the reception area sits the Aria Race and Sports Book. Guests have to travel past slot machines, table games, bars, restaurants and high-end shops before they even get a glimpse of the sports book. It’s easier to buy a coffee from Starbucks than it is to place a bet on your favorite team.

As you pass Five50 Pizza Bar and finally enter the sports book, the first thing that has to grab your attention is the wall of HD screens. About 90 units, in fact.
There isn’t a bad seat in the house that boasts about 10,000 square feet of floor space and a huge LED screen of odds and statistics.
The highlight of this space is the two 9 foot by 16 foot big screens. But if you want to quietly cheer on your horse that’s in the lead or your team that’s rallying in the second half, there are individual TV monitors throughout the book. It you want to just sit back and chat with friends or observe the crowd, there are chairs and couches for that, too.
Drinks and food service are available. There are comp drinks offered as well, depending on how much an individual wagers.
There’s also a VIP section if you’re looking for an exclusive experience.
Aria Online Betting
While the sports book does not have its own online betting option, it does provide plenty of other ways to wager. There are 24 Interactive Player Terminals (IPTs) to allow horse and dog racing fans to place bets without leaving their seats.
There are two self-betting kiosks and nine betting windows available. They will all be in use for huge sporting events like the Super Bowl.
Betting is offered on all the major sports, along with horse racing and dog racing. So get in line to play the money line, point spread, totals, futures, prop bets and parlays.
If Las Vegas isn’t an option for your betting needs, there are some online options that will help you get in on the action — like Bovada, TopBet or Betonline.
