Luxor Sportsbook Review
The Luxor, named after the city by the same name in Egypt, is the sixth largest hotel in Las Vegas and the ninth largest in the world. Located at the south end of the Strip between Mandalay Bay and Excalibur, the Luxor is owned by MGM Resorts International. The Luxor Sky Beam is the strongest beam of light in the world, using computer-designed, curved mirrors to form one intense, narrow beam. On a clear night, the sky beam is visible up to 275 miles away by aircraft.
- Open at least 14 hours every day of the year.
- Sports book easy to find at west end of casino floor.
- Plenty of betting windows to handle a crowd.
- Small room that only seats about 100 guests.
- Very dark venue, almost like being in a movie theatre.
- Some of the individual TVs need to be replaced.
Luxor Las Vegas Sportsbook
There is much in the way of entertainment and attractions at the Luxor, but the featured display is Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. There’s more than 250 authentic artifacts recovered from the wreck site of famous ocean liner.
This vibrant Egyptian-themed resort, which opened in October 1993, has more than 4,000 hotel rooms in the 30-story pyramid and adjoining 22-story twin towers.
The Luxor Race and Sports Book, a non-smoking venue, is located at the west end of the main casino floor. This is not a big-room sports book. It has seating for about 100 guests and is focused more on individual seating stations than a group atmosphere. There are couches at the back of the room for your party of friends.

Luxor Sportsbook Hours
- Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The main viewing wall has two big screens in the middle with odds boards on the outside. Above this display is about a dozen TVs to carry a variety of games and sporting events. There are more TVs located throughout the book.
Complimentary beverages are offered with a voucher, depending on how much a visitor wagers. Drinks are available at the Play Bar, located at the entrance of this venue. Backstage Deli, located near the sports book, is the closest spot if you want something to eat.
If you were hoping for a bigger crowd to watch the game, Mandalay Bay’s sports book to the south can be easily accessed by a pedestrian bridge that takes you through a shopping and restaurant area.
Luxor Online Betting
Being such a small venue, there are more than enough betting windows to handle this crowd. Visitors will line up to play the money line, point spread, over/under, futures and prop bets and more.
The Luxor offers wagering on all the major professional and college sports, along with horse racing and dog racing. If your game or racetrack of interest is not being shown on one of the main televisions, just ask a supervisor.
If you have bet a futures ticket or a game that doesn’t take place until after you leave Las Vegas, winning tickets can be mailed to the Luxor up to 120 days after the completion of the event. However, you may find placing your bets even easier on other online options — like Bovada, TopBet or Betonline.
