    If you’re not reading the corona thread - Rooms are magically coming available for cheap. Call around if you have cancellable reservations and want to upgrade to a better hotel.

    My parents are going next week/end and I’ve seen conventions canceling so I had them call. They moved from boulder highway to the strip for a net savings after the strip resort fees. They get a lot of comps, but they weren’t available when they first booked.

    I now just checked my rates and I have ARIA and Bellagio comped instead of the $400/night it was a couple weeks ago. If only there was a cheap flight I could jump on

    How does betting through a specific casino/sportsbook’s app work? I’m assuming that’s the best option for March madness due to lines?

    You set up your account at the book and fund with cash (you can link your cc/debit with some, but don’t. Bad, bad idea.). Then you just use the app to bet.

    When I was at westgate they had us wait in a line, you fill out a w2 form and shit and then they sit up your account so you can bet on Mobile all week. That’s if you don’t want to continually wait in lines to place a bet

    At planet Hollywood we just went in each day before the games started and put in physical bets. Never had a long line or any issues. I’m guessing it just varies by the time and casino

    The nice thing is you can find an app or Sportsbook with odds you like and not be physically tied down. In-game is where you can make some serious winnings if you’re on top of it.

    yep, we called cosmo this morning to get our earlier booked rates reduced and the difference refunded. a little worried about what the tourney is going to look like - i can't see them having fans at the games.

    no way they cancel the tournament.... right?

    I will be shocked if this happens. The Men’s Basketball Tournament is the financial lifeblood of the NCAA organization. It will be played without fans present. I could even see them subsidizing teams to fly charter.

    They have plenty BI insurance and a rainy day fund. Veryyyy real possibility it is canceled IMO.

    $100/night after taxes and Resort Fee, but definitely below the typical rate for MM.
