M Resort Sportsbook Review
The M Resort sportsbook and the entire resort certainly isn’t within walking distance of the Bellagio fountains, but it has one distinct advantage over the well-traveled stops on the Strip.
The M Resort is the first major casino and sportsbook those coming from California will run into on Interstate 15 before they hit the bright lights and congestion of Las Vegas strip and all of its betting opportunities.
This luxurious property is located about eight miles directly south of the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign and Mandalay Bay on South Las Vegas Boulevard.
M Resort Sportsbook 101
The M Resort Las Vegas sportsbook is the only gambling venue in the Vegas area that provides a desk space, swivel leather chair, lamp and individual television at all of its 90 personal VIP stations.
The inviting non-smoking M Resort sportsbook features 23 high-definition TVs secured on three sides of the room, with the main two flat screens anchored by other smaller screens and odds boards on the main wall behind the betting windows.
M Resort sports betting, which is located on the main property at 12300 South Las Vegas Boulevard in Henderson, Nevada, sits in the southwest corner of the casino floor. The fairly dark room is surrounded by a Hot Slots tournament zone, 32 Degrees Draft Bar and Vig Deli.
Players must be 21 years of age or older to wager anywhere in Nevada, including at this secluded resort.
M Resort sports lines are posted early in the morning as the M Resort sportsbook hours are as follows: Monday to Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Thursday to Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
This is definitely one of the best sportsbooks around, according to locals. They love how easily accessible it is off the major highways that run through the Las Vegas area. The free, convenient parking right outside the sportsbook doesn’t hurt either.
There are M Resort sportsbook odds available on all the major professional and college sports, from the regular season games all the way to the league championships.
The book also simulcasts horse and dog racing from all the major tracks across the country.
If players want to avoid the betting queues, the CG Sports app powered by CG Technology can be downloaded to your Android or iOS devices. All M Resort online sports betting is available on this platform, which is also used on the Strip by the Cosmopolitan and Tropicana sportsbooks.
Like all of the other advertised sportsbook apps in this region, the M Resort Las Vegas sportsbook odds are only active online while you are in the state of Nevada.
It’s one of the biggest reasons why a membership with top-rated online site Bovada is a much better bet.

Unique Spot in the Desert
No, the M Resort is not an oasis in the Mojave Desert.
It may not be as well-known as the giant resorts like the Venetian, Aria or Planet Hollywood, but this gaming property in the middle of nowhere at the southern end of the Las Vegas Valley has just as much to offer as most of the resorts in the area — maybe even more if you don’t enjoy sirens, the wild crowds or the booming noise of today’s music on the Strip.
- The resort is south of the airport and Las Vegas Strip, but Exit 27 on Interstate 15 for those traveling from California.
- Visitors arriving at McCarran International Airport will head south on Paradise Road and take the west exit onto Interstate 215. In a few miles, travel south on I-15 towards Los Angeles. Get off at Exit 27 for County Road 146 St. Rose Parkway. Head east for less than a mile and the M Resort will be on your right-hand side.
- Locals coming from Henderson or anywhere to the east should use I-215 to St. Rose Parkway (County Road 146).
M Resort Parking

- The closest lot to park for the sportsbook is in the southeast corner.

M Resort Casino
Like most casinos located off the Strip, gamblers will often find $5 minimums at table games scattered throughout the 92,000-square-foot gaming area at the M Resort. It’s about half the size of a major venue on the Strip — like MGM Grand.
It’s hard to pinpoint the exact number of slots machines, but there’s plenty of them considering the size of the resort. The minimums vary from one penny to $1 per pull. Use your M Resort rewards card when playing to qualify for the many slot tournaments.
The M has a high limit room, but it’s small. It’s located next to the sportsbook and an Asian restaurant. There are machines with a $2 minimum is this quiet room, but the majority are $5, $10 and $25. Table games typically carry a $50 minimum.
There are a few roulette, baccarat and craps tables in the main gaming area, but blackjack steals the show here. The popular card game pays 3-2 odds on 21 at $10 tables, and 6-5 odds on 21 at $5 tables. Also, players can only split their pairs once at the M.
Other tables game at this off-the-Strip resort include:
- Pai Gow Poker
- Three Card Poker
- Ultimate Texas Hold’em
- Heads Up Hold’em
- High Card Flush
Guests playing the slots, video poker or table games will likely be offered a complimentary drink. Don’t forget to tip at least $1 per drink. This is a good deal compared to the sportsbook, where bettors have to wager hundreds of dollars on their favorite team for a drink voucher.
