M Resort Sportsbook Review
If you’re looking for an escape from all the crowds on the iconic Strip, you have found a new home in the M Resort Las Vegas. This luxurious property is located about eight miles directly south of the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign on South Las Vegas Boulevard. It opened eight years ago in March 2009 and features a 390-room boutique hotel and a technologically advanced sports book.
- Serious players will love the advanced betting technology.
- A more subdued atmosphere with seating for about 100 guests.
- Special events and contests offered throughout the year.
- Most of the seats in this small room are for individual players.
- This venue is located quite a distance away from Vegas Strip.
- This spot is not for casual gamblers looking for a party atmosphere.
M Resort Las Vegas Sportsbook
The M Resort, which is owned by a Pennsylvania real estate trust and operated by Penn National Gaming, and its sports book are not carbon copies of properties on the Strip. This is something uniquely different from the mega casinos located near McCarron International Airport.
This venue is much smaller than places like Caesars Palace. It’s luxurious in every way, just like the Wynn. And its sports book is aimed at serious players, with a much quieter atmosphere than say the open concept of the Cosmopolitan.
March Madness draws a higher dollar total for bets than the Super Bowl at the M Resort Race and Sports Book. Gamblers thrive on the “in-running” technology, which allows continuous betting on events throughout the game.

The high-tech betting platform is the main attraction for betting pros and heavy gamblers to this venue located about a 20-minute drive from the Strip. Odds and spreads change with the scoring in the game, so action is constantly available until the final buzzer.
The sports book has 23 televisions, including a 10-by-18-foot giant projection screen on the main wall. There’s comfortable seating for about 90 guests with multiple TVs and on-screen betting at the individual stations. There are a few spots at the back of the room with chairs for a group setting.
The odds board displays take up a tiny space at both corners on the front wall, but most gamblers would find what they’re looking for on their monitors right in front of them.
Drinks and food are available just outside the sports book at 32 Degrees Draft Bar and Vig Deli. Complimentary drink vouchers are available for bettors.
M Resort Online Betting
This sportsbook offers a percentage of your wagers back in comps. The amount varies between sports betting and horse racing.
There are plenty of betting windows at the front of the room, but the on-screen technology on individual monitors keeps the lineups short.
Guests are offered bets on the money line, point spreads, over/under totals, parlays, futures and many other options like “in-running” wagering — betting on the game as it unfolds. Special events and contests are offered throughout the year, usually around major sporting events.
There are online sites that offer a wide range of betting options as well — like Bovada, TopBet and Betonline.
