Ellis Island is a locals favorite casino - a bit of a hole-in-the-wall place on Koval Lane, behind the Strip - but the sports book offers much of the same action you'll find at its bigger counterparts.
The newly-remodeled sports book is tucked away in the back corner of the casino and is part of the Leroy's Race and Sports Book chain. The book offers all of the daily lines, pari-mutuel betting, parlay cards, teasers, futures, proposition bets and more.
While the sports book is small, there is seating for about 15 to watch all the games on 17 flat-screen TVs. There is also seating for 18 in the race area and the seats have individual screens.
A bar and restaurant are located near the sports book. Ellis Island also boasts a Metro Pizza restaurant and a brewery.
