Summer Provides Opportunity for Plenty of Changes in Las Vegas Casinos/SportsbooksMarc Meltzer, Covers · July 17, 2017 at 4:40 pm We’re in the dog days of summer but you’d never know it from this seat at Red Rock Casino. I’m sitting under an air conditioning duct drinking iced coffee and freezing. This is my favorite time of the year to live in Las Vegas. Every sportsbook is mellow and baseball is on just about every screen all day and into the night. This will only last another month or so until football starts, so let’s enjoy it! This slow period allows casinos time to work on their properties. There are currently two casinos on the Vegas Strip without a sportsbook. When football season kicks off there will be NO casinos on the Vegas Strip without a sportsbook!
