Bally’s has shuttered its race and sports book in a closure that will last through September, property officials said today.
Guests visiting the 285-seat sports book are being directed to the sports book inside the neighboring Paris Las Vegas resort, said Bally’s spokeswoman Deanna Pettit. Harrah’s Entertainment owns both properties.
Pettit wouldn’t elaborate on reasons for the closing, but she said remodeling was not a factor. The sports book will occupy the same spot when it reopens in September.
"The Paris sports book is in such close proximity that we didn’t think it would inconvenience our guests to filter them over to Paris for the time being," Pettit said. "It’s a captive group within Bally’s and Paris, so we should be able to service our guests with the Paris sports book."
The closure affects fewer than 10 employees, Pettit said.
