The entrance to the Sports and Racing Book is off of the pedestrian bridge between the MGM Grand and the Tropicana. There you are greeted by a outdoor LED sign. This engaging 14’x11’ 10mm LED sign is used for displaying odds as well as events and advertising for both the Sports & Racing Book and the Hotel. This outdoor LED sign delivers uncompromised clarity and brightness in any lighting environment. JBL Speakers are built into the sign directing audio to the walkway, further enticing visitors to enter the Book.
Upon entering the space you have an expansive view of the book from the 2nd floor. The Sports and Race book has an overall image size of 75’ x 8.5’. There are six Christie HD 3 Chip DLP projectors with Xenon based lamps which give superb contrast for this 24/7 operation.
