The Big Game 2024 in Las Vegas: What to Know

Big Game Energy

Every year, Las Vegas has been the premier destination for tens of thousands of visitors looking to experience the Big Game at sports books, casino bars, casino theaters, and private Super Bowl parties for high rollers.

In fact, Las Vegas has always been a major destination for people to watch the Big Game because you can bet on the game legally. And even though sports betting is now legal in over half the country, nowhere else has the energy, luxurious accommodations, and attractions for friends from near and far to gather together like Las Vegas.

Las Vegas: The Latest and Glitziest Sporting Metropolis

It’s only natural with Las Vegas hosting so many premier sporting events that Las Vegas would one day host The Big Game. So far, Las Vegas’s sports rap sheet includes an F1 race in 2023, numerous college basketball conference tournaments, the Pac 12 football championship, the 2023 WNBA All-Star Game, several premier golf events, the most recent Stanley Cup Finals, and numerous championship boxing events.

Truth be told, Las Vegas hosting the 2022 NFL Draft was a precursor to Las Vegas being added to the rotation. After all, we love Dallas, Tampa, and Jacksonville, but none of those places have the fun and amenities Las Vegas has to offer.

Who is Expected to Win the Big Game?

Fans who visit Las Vegas between now and The Big Game can bet in-person at the various sports books and/or register for the mobile sports apps at the sportsbooks and place bets while physically in Nevada.

At the time of this writing, according to the STN Sports Betting app, the San Fransico 49ers are favored over the Kansas City Chiefs by 2.5 points.

Las Vegas Hotel Rooms for the Big Game

Many know that finding a hotel room for big events anywhere will be pricey. That said, Las Vegas’ first time hosting the Big Game only happens once.

Given that it has the most hotel rooms of any company on the Las Vegas Strip, we suggest starting your search for rooms at MGM Resorts. MGM Resorts has everything from luxury high-roller suite experiences to value-oriented properties and everything in between.

How to Book the Best Rates

You can find the lowest rates and book MGM Resorts properties for the weekend of The Big Game.

Some hotels near Allegiant Stadium that still have availability include (note that availability is subject to change):

  • Aria
  • Bellagio
  • Vdara
  • MGM Grand
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • Delano
  • Park MGM
  • New York-New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur

All the available hotels are the closest and walkable to Allegiant Stadium, so if you are going to the game itself, all of these are convenient.

Pro Tip

It is also worth checking back often if availability changes, particularly once the field of potential Big Game participants narrows down.

How to Watch the Big Game: Las Vegas Sportsbooks

Important note: All MGM Resorts sportsbooks are non-smoking.

Official VIP packages and tickets are still available through the NFL for high-rollers and corporate folks. For most of us, one of the best ways to watch the game, other than in the stadium, is to watch with other die-hard football fans at one of Las Vegas’s many sportsbooks, including BetMGM’s renowned sportsbooks. However, you will have to get there early in the morning on the day of the Big Game to have a chance to secure seating.

On game day, some great choices for watching The Big Game in Las Vegas include:

Mandalay Bay

The BetMGM Sports Book at Mandalay Bay is the closest place to watch The Big Game without physically being there. There are 17 TVs and three large video screens. The book seats about 300 fans – making it among the largest books on the Strip.

There are VIP areas as well. For food & beverage, the sportsbook offers a deli with standard fare of sandwiches and burgers.

MGM Grand sportsbook

MGM Grand

Another extensive sportsbook is found at MGM Grand. MGM Grand offers 60 viewing screens and seating for 104 people. The book has Sky Boxes for VIP experiences for groups of up to 10 or 20.

Another option, if the sportsbook seating is full, is the TAP Sports Bar located steps away. TAP has a large complement of TVs and offers excellent food and a large beer selection.

Pro tip: Besides betting at a window, all books have self-service kiosks.


ARIA offers 90 screens – more than any other MGM Resorts sportsbook in Las Vegas, although the seating area is smaller than Mandalay Bay. The TVs are as large as 220 inches. The ARIA boasts very comfortable seating, with many claiming it has the most comfortable sportsbook chairs in Las Vegas.

ARIA also has a seating area with tables for groups to enjoy together with waitress service. One other advantage of ARIA is the great pizza found steps away from the sportsbook at Moneline Pizza & Bar.

Other Options

Other great options are available if you don’t plan to wake up early on game day and save spots at the sportsbook.

Most showrooms/theaters and nightclubs in Las Vegas will host parties open to the public. They will range from buying a seat in a theater for less than $100 per person to posh nightclubs such as Marquee at Cosmopolitan, which will require table seating and food and drink minimums. For all of these options, please call the hotels well in advance to make reservations.

Many restaurants will also offer special seating for the Big Game. Great options include Tom’s Watch Bar located next to New York-New York, and the aforementioned TAP Sports Bar, which also has a second location at Excalibur.

Pro Tips

Besides betting at a window, all books have self-service kiosks.

Most books are also adjacent to the poker room, so if you are a poker player, you can play poker while watching the game and simultaneously experience its energy.
