Place Your Bets At The Cromwell's New Sportsbook! “Sugar” Shane Mosley Places Bet

“Sugar” Shane Mosley places bet at The Cromwell’s all-new sportsbook 
Just in time for one of the most anticipated fights and football season, the Strip’s only standalone boutique hotel, The Cromwell, opens its brand-new sportsbook with boxing champion “Sugar” Shane Mosley on Wednesday, Aug. 22. Mosley joined Regional President, Eileen Moore, as well as Blake Segal, Caesars Entertainment Senior Vice President of Operations and General Manager of The Cromwell, for a ribbon cutting and placed a commemorative bet on his choice for the August 26th fight.

The Cromwell’s new sportsbook features best-in-the-city technology and picture-quality, as well as a 32-foot-long by 9-foot-tall LED video wall and a 9-foot-by-5-foot LED odds wall with ticker capabilities to see scores and updates from a number of vantage points throughout the casino. With flexible seating, the new sportsbook is easily accessible, and is located adjacent to Bound, The Cromwell’s elevated lobby bar experience allowing guests to enjoy both crafted cocktails and their favorite sporting events.

Other recent additions to The Cromwell include more player-friendly gaming offerings, from single “0” roulette to EZ Baccarat to 100X odds on Craps to 3-2 shoe and double-deck blackjack, making playing at The Cromwell one of the best odds to win big in Vegas.

THE NEW PLAYER-FRIENDLY GAMING AMENITIES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Single “0” Roulette – Also known as European roulette and previously found primarily in high-limit areas only, The Cromwell now has this table game on the main casino floor and with approachable table limits.

EZ Baccarat - Played the same way as traditional baccarat, EZ Baccarat is among the most popular baccarat games worldwide.  While the drawing rules are unchanged, EZ Baccarat eliminates the taking of the 5% commission after every winning Bank hand.

3-2 Shoe and Double-Deck Blackjack – With affordable table limits among the lowest minimum bets on the Strip, blackjack at The Cromwell brings back classic Vegas gaming.

100X Odds on Craps – For those who like to roll the bones, The Cromwell now offers a super-generous 100X odd on craps with accessible table limits.

In addition to the new and enticing table gaming options, The Cromwell has also recently introduced a greater variety of slot games including all the latest and greatest and The Abbey, an all-new high-limit slot area.  A new fast-casual dining option, eatwell, is now open, offering great food round-the-clock, as well as an enhanced bar and lounge, Interlude, with great drinks and free live entertainment.
