March Madness Vegas

Las Vegas draws huge crowds for any number of events, from big boxing matches to fantasy sports drafts. But one of the biggest is during the start of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament – lovingly known as March Madness. During this period, thousands descend on the city to partake in its myriad watching locations and, more importantly, free-flowing liquor and lax gambling laws. But, according to officials, in the future there is opportunity to grow the event even more!

Key Takeaways:

  • Las Vegas is home to a number of major events which draw huge crowds each year.
  • One of the biggest is March Madness, where thousands flock to Sin City to gamble on the games and party.
  • However, there’s actually evidence that it hasn’t reached its full potential – there’s a lot more that could be done.

“The March money starts flowing in earnest the week prior to the madness. That’s when Las Vegas hosts the tournaments for the Pac-12, West Coast, Mountain West and Western Athletic conferences at T-Mobile Arena, Orleans Arena and Thomas & Mack Center.”
