Hitting Vegas for the Tournament means you can easily watch and bet on every single game, but how they hell are you supposed to juggle all that waiting on line for day-ofs to Jersey Boys? With Palazzo's PocketCasino, that's how.
Intro'd for testing in the fall, the small-camera-sized handheld PocketCasino is now all-systems go, decked out with fresh NCAA Tournament features and rigged up for use all over the Palazzo, including the high limit slot salon, Grazie Gold Lounge, race & sports book, and various bars/lounges/restaurants, so you can go winner winner chicken dinner while simultaneously eating one. The Pocket serves as a live Madness scoreboard and your portal to make moves on lines/spreads/over-unders, which, unlike normal sports books, constantly adjust as the games progress (up 'til midway through the second half); thanks to another dangerously unique innovation, you can also bet on how many free throws a player'll hit in a given trip, with odds based on current score, time remaining, and the player's FT prowess -- the same feature's available for the NBA, so listen to Wesley Snipes, and
always never bet on Shaq. All the on-the-fly lines/spreads/over-unders also work for the NBA, and the Pocket'll support the NFL next fall, where on top of standard bets you can insta-wager whether or not a field goal will be made or a team'll score a TD/make their next first down on any drive; beyond sports, it runs blackjack, video poker, and baccarat, so enjoy the blackjack and video poker.
The go-to Pocket hotspot for hoops fanatics is definitely Lagasse's Stadium, equipped with 109 flatscreens plus a giant theater-style projection screen, and serving up soft pretzels with a three-cheese/tomato/jalapeno dipping sauce, and pitchers of Slam Dunk, with Crown Royal/Sour Apple Pucker/fresh lemon sour/cranberry juice -- a bummer, if all you really want is cherrrrry, cherry baby...
