Stratosphere Sportsbook 101
For a resort that’s looking to draw guests and tourists with multiple heart-racing attractions, the Stratosphere Las Vegas sportsbook is certainly not one of them.
Stratosphere sports betting, which is located at 2000 South Las Vegas Boulevard, fails to make the grade in almost every category.
It’s a non-smoking venue, but the scents easily find their way into the Stratosphere sportsbook from the surrounding casino. It has seating, but it’s average at best with about 40 chairs and couches and room for 120 guests. There are two big screens on the main wall with dozens of smaller TVs around the area, but the picture quality is mediocre and the sound quality is poor.
One of the best sportsbooks in Las Vegas? Hardly. This would rank in the bottom third, especially when it’s compared to other venues at the north end of the Strip in the Wynn and Mirage or another nearby betting spot in the Westgate.
Players must be 21 years of age or older to wager anywhere in Nevada, including on Stratosphere entertainment esports on the William Hill Android App.
Pari-mutuel wagering, for horses and dogs, is available. This section, with individual monitors and desks, is located to the left of the main sportsbook area. Bettors for sports and horse racing can wager on the Stratosphere sportsbook odds at one of the four betting windows under the main viewing wall. Stratosphere sports lines are posted for the events of the day in the NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB.
However, players can take their action online and bet on the exact same odds through the William Hill Android App. The platform is not available on iOS devices. Also, Stratosphere online sports betting is only active in the state of Nevada.
The Stratosphere does offer complimentary drinks in this betting area. The soft rules call for a $100 bet on sports and a $20 wager on the horses to earn a drink voucher, which is more than other off-the-Strip venues like South Point.
It’s Game Time at the Stratosphere

Stratosphere Hotel and Tower
Bob Stupak’s World Famous Million-Dollar Historic Gambling Museum and Casino first opened on this site in 1974. A fire two months later ended those dreams and started another as Stupak opened Vegas World in 1979. That resort was then merged in 1993 and renamed the Stratosphere. Golden Entertainment, which purchased the resort in June 2017, announced plans for a major renovation and renamed the resort to the Strat in February 2019.
- The hotel, which is separate from the famous tower, is 24 stories tall.
- It has 2,427 generously sized rooms and 133 suites.
- Basic rates start as low as $26 a night, but it’s more than double that when the $33 resort fee is tacked on.
- Standard rooms, with one king or two queen beds, include flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi, although the speed of this service is a bit slow. Speed upgrades come with a fee.
- Standard rooms are 340 square feet, while the tower suites start at 574 square feet.
- Two outdoor pool options include a family-friendly area and a spot for adults only.
- Admission to the SkyPod tower is $20. Access to all three thrill rides (Insanity Ride, Big Shot Ride, and X-Scream Ride) all day is $39.
