Silverton Sportsbook Review
The rustic lodge with a Bass Pro Shop and large saltwater aquarium in its huge lobby and Silverton sportsbook on the main casino floor is located at Interstate 15 and Blue Diamond Road, about 10 minutes south of the Strip and Las Vegas gaming.
Formerly known as Boomtown Las Vegas, the Silverton is unlike the mega resorts on the famous Strip in that it caters to locals and California tourists.
The 80-acre property and surrounding area consists of a 300-room casino and hotel, retail space and hotel at Silverton Village, and a 400-unit timeshare building called the Berkley Las Vegas.
Silverton Sportsbook 101
The Silverton sportsbook is the first stop upon entering the main gaming floor from the free parking area.
This 2,000-square-foot venue will remind visitors of the Venetian sportsbook with its dominant red coloring scheme and row-by-row desk countertop seating, even though it’s a much smaller room.
Silverton sports betting can accommodate 38 guests, each with an individual chair and desktop television.
The Silverton Las Vegas sportsbook is located off Interstate 15 at 3333 Blue Diamond Road, just a short distance north of two other off-the-Strip resorts competing for the California and local crowd. South Point sportsbook is about four miles away, while the M Resort venue is close to eight.
Silverton sportsbook hours are almost the same every day, open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Players must be 21 years of age or older to wager anywhere in Nevada, including on Silverton entertainment esports or any other gaming platform in Las Vegas.
Silverton sports lines, which are powered by CG Technology, are posted to the sides of the main viewing wall. This is the same platform used at one of the best sportsbooks in Las Vegas in the Cosmopolitan.
The video area is 7.5 feet by 53 feet of LED big screens, which is capable of displaying four marquee events or 16 half-sized video images.
Bettors can line up to wager at one of the four betting windows. However, unless this is a major championship, there is likely only one station open for bets during the week on all the top leagues in America and around the world.
Silverton Las Vegas sportsbook odds are displayed for NHL, NBA, MLB, and NFL games, while other daily betting lines and futures are offered on hard copy printouts.
Complimentary beverages are offered with a voucher but, like most sportsbooks on the Strip such as Mandalay Bay, they’re getting harder and harder to come by. There are no firm rules for a free drink at the Silverton, but plan on betting a fair amount to get one.
Most betting isn’t done any more with a hard copy ticket anyways. The trend is to place bets through an app on your mobile device. The Silverton sportsbook online is offered through CG Technology’s CG Sports app.
Register and deposit money into your account at the Silverton and wager as often as you’d like. But the app is only valid in the state of Nevada. You won’t be able to take advantage of Silverton online sports betting if you live anywhere else in the United States.
It’s Game Time at Silverton

The biggest bonus of playing online is access to live betting, where the money line, point spread and over-under totals change even after the game has started.
Location off the Strip
Sports betting and slot machines are not the only draw to the Silverton Casino & Hotel, which is located right on Interstate 15 about a 10-minute drive south of the Strip.
It also features an outdoor pool, a floor-to-ceiling aquarium with mermaid shows, and an attached Bass Pro Shop. There’s plenty to do here in this rustic lodge, but it lacks all the flash and glitter of the resorts on the Strip.
- Visitors arriving at McCarran Airport will head west on Tropicana Avenue and then south on Interstate 15. Exit at Blue Diamond Road and head west as the property can be seen from the highway.
- Travelers heading northeast on a four-hour drive from Los Angeles will exit I-15 at Blue Diamond Road and head west across the highway.
- The Silverton offers scheduled shuttle service for hotel guests to three separate locations. Check with the resort as times for departure and arrivals vary. The Silverton provides services to and from the airport, Aria Resort & Casino, and the Grandview Las Vegas.
Silverton’s Free Parking
The Silverton resort offers free parking with hundreds of open-air spaces and a five-floor parking garage. It may not seem like a big deal, but some of the mega resorts on the Strip are charging as much as $20 a day for parking.
- The garage can be accessed on the northwest side of the property off Dean Martin Drive.
- The garage offers direct access to the casino and hotel on the first floor.
- Valet service is located on the first floor of the parking garage. Those waiting for their cars can wait inside a climate-controlled room.
- There is also a full-service car wash and special VIP parking for Silverton members.
Public Transportation Options
Start off your Vegas vacation with the best bet and use a ride share app to reach your destination at Silverton. The programs Uber and Lyft will take visitors anywhere in the surrounding Las Vegas area at about two-thirds the cost of a taxi fare. Just enter the details of your trip and wait for a driver to reply with a price and availability. No cash ever changes hands.
- Pick up your ride share on the second level of the parking garage at the airport. A ride to the Silverton is about $16 with Uber or Lyft.
- There’s always a lengthy queue of taxes waiting at the airport to take visitors to their resorts. Taxi fare to the Silverton is about $26, including taxes, fees and tip.
- Limousine services are available at the airport and at most Las Vegas resorts. The going rate is generally around $85-$90 an hour.
- The public transit bus system does offer service to the Silverton and surrounding area, but it’s not really convenient for visitors.
Food & Drinks at Silverton
The Silverton has about a half-dozen dining destinations, including a buffet with show-cooking stations. But the Seasons buffet seems to get the most complaints from reviewers on TripAdvisor for its high prices and just average food.
Here are some of the culinary choices that get much better reviews at the Silverton:
- Sundance Grill offers a variety of sandwiches, grilled entrees, salads, and desserts.
- WuHu Noodle features handcrafted noodle bowls, fresh ingredients and bold flavors throughout.
- Steak and seafood are prepared to perfection in an elegant setting at Twin Creeks boutique.
- The Mermaid Restaurant & Lounge may be the star of the show, but the Silverton has a few other drinking spots:
- Flare Bar puts players in the heart of the casino action. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m.
- Shady Grove Lounge is open 24 hours and has mini bowling lanes inside a converted ’50s Airstream trailer.
The loyalty program at this off-the-Strip resort on the south side of Las Vegas is called Silverton Rewards. It is the only casino that uses this program.
Guests who register for this free card receive bonuses and offers from Day 1, including a half-off dining promotion and up to $100 in free play. Cardholders are emailed monthly offers, special invitations to events and slot tournaments, and free gifts.
All members start off at the Silver level and graduate to Gold, Platinum, and Diamond by earning tier credits for casino play at slot and video poker machines and table games. Points are not awarded in the sportsbook.
Reward points can be used for free slot play, dining, retail merchandise, concert tickets, hotel accommodations, Bass Pro Shop gift cards and more.
Like all the other reward cards, the higher level cardholders and high rollers receive more comps, perks and free play.
The 69,000-square-foot casino has the same hot slots as the towering mega resorts on the Strip. With more than 1,500 names to choose from, including video poker and video keno, all that’s missing at the Silverton is maybe some iconic water show out front.
Guests will also find 30 table games on the main casino floor, with limits running anywhere from $5 to $1,000. There’s a seat open at the following games:
- Blackjack, tables offer an attractive 3-2 odds on a 21, starting with $5 minimums.
- Craps, start at $5 minimum with standard rules.
- Roulette, with all wheels containing the standard two sets of zeroes, with $5 and $10 minimum tables.
Other table games spotted on the casino floor include: Pai Gow Poker with progressive bonuses, Three Card Poker with progressive bonuses, and Ultimate Texas Hold’em with progressive bonuses.
The Silverton closed its poker room in 2012 and there doesn’t seem to be any movement currently to bring one back.
The complimentary drink service is very good in the main gaming area for guests playing slots, video poker or table games. A tip is always a good idea if you are hoping for a second round.
Mountain Lodge Theme at Silverton Hotel
The Silverton Las Vegas, which opened its doors in May 1994, is a great value and convenient spot for locals and tourists looking for a comfortable stay away from the mayhem on the nearby Strip.
The property’s spacious rooms were remodeled and refreshed in 2013 and 2014, even though most retained the mountain lodge theme. The hotel earned TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2018.
- Basic resort rooms, with one king or two queen beds, are 378 square feet and start at about $59 a night. A $22 per night resort fee is tacked on at checkout.
- Luxury suites, with a king bed, soaking tub and breakfast bar, are 800 square feet and include a living room.
- Some rooms have older tube-style TVs and lack coffee makers, though mini-fridges are available for an extra fee.
- Courtyard pool is surrounded by a deck featuring a hot tub, loungers, and large round daybeds, along with private cabanas (for a fee).
