Best atmosphere: Cantor book at Venetian. Big problem here: Horrible alcohol comps (you have to make a $500 sports wager to get a free beer). Cesar's has a good atmosphere and generous comps dished out by the tellers. Flamingo pretty gives free alcohol to anybody in the book, no questions asked.
Now if you make a $50 bet on a football game and drink one beer a quarter, total 4 beers at about $7 a pop, even if you win, you spent $28 on beer leaving you with a profit of only $22. So yeah, it's not shameful to shop around for the best beer action too.
I never spend time in MGM's books, but the Monte Carlo's book looks cozy.
