STN Sports Nevada real money sports betting app
STN Sports is the sports wagering application from Station Casinos (Red Rock Resorts is the parent company). This is a casino group with 10 properties spread out all over Las Vegas. Each Nevada casino sportsbook offers the same odds, lines, and point spreads.
The app offers all of the same wagering options that you’ll find in the retail sportsbooks and then some. The mobile app offers a variety of In Play wagering opportunities that cannot be found on the big board at the sportsbooks inside of the various Station Casinos in Las Vegas.
Station Casinos had one of the first sports betting apps in Nevada. Las Vegas residents make up the majority of customers for Station Casinos. The company could be seen as a groundbreaking sports betting operation in Nevada. Sports Connection, their first app, helped bring mobile sports wagering to the masses in Las Vegas. STN Sports was the first Nevada sports betting app to offer horse race wagering in the same app as sports betting.
Nevada casinos continue to break sports betting records. While the state doesn’t separate mobile from retail wagering it doesn’t seem like a coincidence that the handle is growing as mobile sports betting becomes more popular.
Anecdotally, a few years ago approximately 1/3rd of all money wagered at Station Casinos came via a mobile app. That number continues to grow, as more customers adopt the new technology. Some Nevada sportsbooks are seeing as much as 50% of wagers placed by mobile apps.
[toc] The STN Sports app became popular with Las Vegas residents for two main reasons. A bettor may not want to go to the casino to place a wager, or they just don’t want to stand in line at the sportsbook. While it’s not always visible, the latter is often the case for major events like the first weekend of March Madness.
This is different than sportsbooks on the Vegas Strip which have hour-long lines to bet during major events like the Super Bowl and March Madness. Even though all casinos offer mobile wagering, tourists don’t fund accounts as often as Nevada locals. Many Station Casinos properties have many guests relaxing in seats betting with the STN Sports app during those major events.
STN Sports, and all sports betting apps from Nevada can only be used within state lines. The app provider uses a combination of geolocation methods to locate the device. All STN Sports app users must be 21 years of age to open and use the account.
STN Sports software
The STN Sports app uses Miomni software that you’ll find used with many other Nevada sports wagering apps. The app has been skinned with Station Casino colors of red, black, and white. Underneath the Miomni skin, STN Sports is powered by Stadium Technology.
Apps with this software combination have become more popular since the user interface is similar to the majority of other sports wagering apps available.
The software is intuitive and easy to use. STN Sports offers more In Play wagering options than most Nevada sportsbooks. Not only does Station Casinos offer a great variety of games but each has a large menu of wagering options.
This app separates itself from other sports wagering apps in two major ways. Players can set up a horse wagering account to bet on horses through the app. The software was updated in 2019 to allow customers to easily wager on both sports and horse accounts with a single sign-in. Players may also move funds between sports and horse accounts.
There has been one major feature with every incarnation of a Station Casino sports wagering app. Each wager with STN Sports (horses or sports) will earn Boarding Pass players club points. This is a feature not available with most other sports wagering apps in Nevada.
On its most recent software update, miomni introduced biometrics to sign in to STN Sports. Bettors may now use Face or Touch ID to sign in. A four-digit PIN may still be used for older devices. The update also integrates the Play+ more seamlessly into the app. This should make deposits easier than ever.
STN Sports sign-up
Players may download the STN Sports app anywhere but must sign up for an account in person at a brick and mortar Station Casinos sportsbook or at El Cortez in Downtown Las Vegas. Station Casinos operates the sportsbook at El Cortez. STN Sports accounts can be opened and funded in person at the sportsbook inside the following casinos:
- Barley’s Casino
- Boulder Station
- El Cortez
- Fiesta Henderson
- Fiesta Rancho
- Green Valley Ranch
- Palace Station
- Red Rock Casino
- Sante Fe Station
- Sunset Station
- Texas Station
- Wild Wild West
- Wildfire (Anthem, Boulder, Casino & Lanes, Lake Mead, Rancho, Sunset, Valley View)
*Note: Palms sportsbook is not a Station Casinos sportsbook. Palms sportsbook is currently operated by CG Technology and will soon be operated by William Hill.
The initial sign-up process is simple and should take about 10-15 minutes to file paperwork. Everyone who signs up must have a valid ID and active Boarding Pass card. You can begin the loyalty club sign-up process online before getting to the physical casino.
Funding STN Sports
STN Sports accounts must first be funded in person at a retail Station Casinos sportsbook mentioned above. The minimum deposit to start an account is $50. There are often bonuses available for opening new accounts. Check with the casino before signing up as the offers change.
Subsequent funding may take place in person at the same Station Casinos sportsbook or online with a Play + pre-paid card. The most recent update to STN sports allows funding directly through the app with the pre-paid card.
Types of bets with STN Sports
The odds, point spreads, and lines should be the same on the STN Sports app as they are at all Station Casinos sports books. Players can make the following bets:
- Point spread
- Money line (full and partial game)
- Parlay cards (when available)
- Round Robin
- In-play betting
Station Casinos has a large betting menu, but usually isn’t the first sportsbook operator to post lines and odds for events. This is a casino operator that caters mostly to local residents who gamble for entertainment. The odds, point spreads, and lines will reflect the customers, who wager on popular and local teams.
Minimum and maximum wagers with STN Sports
The minimum wager with STN Sports is $2. The maximum wager may be different for each customer. You should speak with the sportsbook manager where you fund the account if you’d like to place high-limit wagers.
Withdrawals from STN Sports
You may withdraw funds from the STN Sports app at the brick and mortar Station Casino sportsbook you initially signed up at. You can also withdraw funds online with a Play+ account.
