Suncoast Sportsbook 101
The Suncoast sportsbook made some minor changes recently that scored with sports bettors as all of the older TVs were swapped out for newer LED screens. The picture quality is obviously better in this 150-seat venue, which is located at 9090 Alta Drive across from the outdoor mall Tivoli Village and five miles east of Red Rock Canyon.
Suncoast sportsbook hours are the same every day of the week: Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 4 a.m. Betting lines are posted by 8 a.m. daily. Players must be 21 years of age or older to wager anywhere in Nevada, including on Suncoast entertainment betting lines, esports odds or any other sporting or artistic event available in the platform in Las Vegas.
Suncoast sports lines, which are powered by Boyd Gaming and available online on the sports betting app B Connected, are posted on a wall to the right of the main viewing area. There are plenty of betting stations located below the main screens, but only two or three are open most days of the week.
Bettors can line up to wager on all the top leagues in the U.S. and around the world. Suncoast 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.
The leather chairs on the right side of the venue are in high demand for sports players, while horseplayers fill the left side of the room at row-by-row desks with personal TV, light, and chair. Still, with 22 TVs around the book, there isn’t a bad seat in the house.
Those looking for complimentary drinks will be happy to hear that a beverage server offers a beverage to anyone on the horseplayer side. That’s the way sportsbooks used to take care of visitors, so it’s refreshing to see the practice still in action at Suncoast. On the sports side, bettors can earn one drink voucher with a $25 bet or two with a $50 wager, which is a better deal than the mega-resorts on the Strip.

The Suncoast Las Vegas sportsbook, which is stationed on the southwest corner of the resort next to the movie theater, is easily accessible from the parking garage since it is located at the same end of the property.

You won’t be able to take advantage of Suncoast online sports betting if you live anywhere else in the United States.
- Enjoy the Action at Suncoast
Suncoast Casino Las Vegas is located on the outskirts of Summerlin — the "rich" neighborhood in the valley. The property backs onto the Angel Club Golf Course, which is a favorite with the casino crowd. Though it's off the regular route for tourists, the family-friendly resort has several gaming and entertainment choices with a wide range of pricing.
"This hotel and casino is off the Strip and very quiet and very comfortable," said a TripAdvisor reviewer in November 2019. "To me and my family, every time we visit it's like coming home to family."
Visitors arriving at McCarran Airport will head south to Interstate 215 and travel west to the Bruce Woodbury Parkway. Head north on Fort Apache Road. The street name changes at Charleston Boulevard to Rampart Boulevard. Continue on this roadway until reaching Alta Drive and the resort. The entire 17-mile trip from the airport takes around 25 minutes, depending on traffic.
Travelers heading northeast on a four-hour drive from Los Angeles will exit I-15 west at Bruce Woodbury Parkway. The resort is about 15 miles from the interstate.
A shuttle service is available to and from the airport seven days a week for hotel guests, but the cost ranges from $25 to $130 per person each way.
- Suncoast Parking
Locals casinos are known for being a little more friendly than the mega-resorts on the Strip, especially without the hassle of paying for parking. The Suncoast resort with the Mediterranean theme is no different with five outdoor parking lots and a parking garage. It's free no matter where you park here.
The 5,000-space parking garage features a moving walking from the structure into the resort.
Open-air parking lots surround the resort, but the parking garage is on the west side of the property and accessible from Alta Drive.
Valet parking is also complimentary.
- Public Transportation Options
Las Vegas offers an excellent transit bus service, but it's probably not the best public transportation option to travel if your destination is of great distance in the area. A better bet for Las Vegas gamblers is to use rideshare programs Uber and Lyft. The service is available 24 hours a day every day with hundreds of designated vehicles on the road. The service also picks you up and drops you off exactly where you want to go, with little wait times.
The Westcliff Airport Express (WAX) services Suncoast and the airport. It departs and arrives at terminals 1 and 3. The ride to Suncoast takes about 50 minutes, depending on traffic, and costs $6 per person.
Download the free rideshare program apps Uber and Lyft to your mobile device. The cost of a ride is about half to two-thirds of the taxi service. Pick up your rideshare on the second level of the parking garage at the airport.
Price both Uber and Lyft before completing your transaction. It will cost about $35 for a ride on either service from the airport to Suncoast.
There is always a long queue of taxis waiting at the airport outside the main terminal. The cost for a ride to Suncoast is about $75 — more than double the cost of rideshare.
Limousine services are available with the going rate around $85-90 an hour.
