was there during mlb, right before all star break last yr -- 20 cent mlb line, no totals -- they did put up a total on the all star game, 500 limits -- when i asked for my bet on the total the clerk looked at me like i was nuts -- no other sports which were in season (wnba, etc) -

very small, but good enough to get your "fix" when you are on vacation

By any chance do you know the tax consequences if I win a boat load??
Also, If I am to bring 10,000 or more US dollars, do I have to declare it at customes?

They move their NFL half and quarter lines on money (nickel limit). No shame in that. Hoops move half a point off a limit bet. I was there for a week during the NFL playoffs last year and the sportsbook was really really quiet every time I walked in. Wasn't there during the football games themselves but otherwise there was one clerk and usually no patrons.

Cashing out is a bit of a pain (getting tickets validated etc.) and I guess you have zero hope of a comp if you play sports instead of the slots (my companion told me the slots were the tightest she had seen in her life) but the place is spotless, the clerk on duty was generally knowledgeable enough to do her job, no lineups, and funky numbers. I managed to win enough to pay for the dining plan for my week.

If you're staying at Atlantis itself for any length of time, get a dining plan. Paying as-you-go is a lot more expensive.

Don't expect to swim too much...none of the pools are heated. C-c-c-cold.
