Several new race and sportsbooks have opened around the valley, including at Rampart Casino, which recently unveiled its newest property renovation project. The newly constructed space, which replaced JC’s Irish Pub, spans nearly 6,000 square feet just off the main casino floor and boasts 126 seats, including 55 private carrels for race bettors.
The race and sportsbook is also home to a new Race & Sports Bar – a 50 person-capacity bar and lounge featuring 10 bar-top gaming machines and plenty of televisions surrounding the bar for fans to keep up with all the action.
Visual technology greets guests from the moment they walk toward the race and sportsbook with an expansive electronic ticker that runs through the bar and lounge, giving fans constant updates on sporting news. The focal point of the main sportsbook is a more than 50-foot customizable LED screen that can be split to show multiple games, events, and programmed messaging.
The sportsbook additionally houses 80 HD televisions throughout the venue, including nine 60-inch monitors. Just to the side of the LED screen, technology will continue with the odds board updating in real time.
