[toc]The Downtown Grand in Las Vegas will be the only place in the US where you can both legally bet on and watch the League of Legends World Championships final next month.
The hotel and casino announced it will be hosting a watch party for the final match at its dedicated esports facility.
League of Legends in Las Vegas
The Downtown Grand has led the way on esports betting and esports in general in Las Vegas.
So it’s no shock that it is catering to esports fans for the biggest event on the LoL calendar.
The Downtown Grand will host a viewing party for the championship match on Saturday, Nov. 4, beginning at 4 p.m. in the property’s dedicated esports venue, The Commissary.
The event will feature food and drink specials, games and raffles during what the property is calling a “free and immersive viewing party experience.”
Betting on LoL worlds
Also, no other casino in the state — or in the US for that matter — is offering for LoL betting for worlds.
Wagers must be placed by midnight on Nov. 3 for the final match.
The Downtown Grand was the first US casino to take a bet on an esports competition in 2016, when it booked wagers on an LoL event in Oakland, Calif.
More on the Downtown Grand esports experience
There are few, if any, places in the world that cater to esports quite like the Downtown Grand.
The Commissary is more than just a place to watch esports. It also provides the “latest gaming rigs, a high-speed and secure network, the best peripherals and state of the art streaming equipment so gamers can have the experience they desire,” according to the resort. It’s operated almost 200 esports tournaments.
The Downtown Grand also features its “Esports Boot Camp Room” for training and “Gamer Suites” for teams to stay in while in town.

Las Vegas will get a dedicated esports arena soon.
Luxor will open its venue in Q1 of next year. But that property does not have a sportsbook.
That means the Downtown Grand will still be a destination for those who want to both bet on and watch esports.
