As I wrote recently Fantasy Football Has Changed Watching The Games In Las Vegas. That can be either good or bad depending on your point of view. There are more options than ever to watch football in a casino and that’s a wonderful thing. Even better than having more choices on where to watch the games is that you may be able to pay for your experience by using players club points. You can even earn players club credits while eating, drinking and watching football in Las Vegas.
During a series of posts on Mlife, Blackjacker1979 told you how you can earn points outside of gaming with your Mlife players club card. That information is useful when choosing where you may want to watch football at the different MGM Resorts hotels in Las Vegas.
…every single dollar spent on room, food, beverage, and select retail on property or charged to your room earns you even more Tier Credits at the rate of 25 points per $1 of spend.
Yes, you can earn tier credits while eating, drinking and watching football at one of the sports bars located on MGM Resorts properties. These credits will help you can climb the Mlife tier ladder. Earning tier credits isn’t limited to bars and restaurants. Much like when you get a cabana at a pool you can earn tier credits with your Mlife card when you pay your bill for a sports book VIP couch or table. (Also, don’t forget the tier multipliers for those with Sapphire, Pearl, Gold, Platinum or Noir status.)
Another option is available if you’d rather use Express Comps that you’ve accumulated to pay your bill instead of earning tier credits. Express Comps can be used at various food and beverage outlets at MGM Resorts properties in Vegas. Just make sure to look for the “Express Comps Accepted Here” sign to make sure your are at a participating venue.
Where to watch the games
Now that you know you can use Mlife Express Comps or earn tier credits let’s look at the best options to watch football at an MGM Resorts property. Thankfully MGM Resorts has a really nice variety of bars, restaurants and sports books to use Express Comps or earn tier credits. Here are some of the best places for viewing football on a busy Saturday or Sunday when there are multiple games on at once.
