From the first basket to the last buzzer, Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia is the place to celebrate the “madness” of college basketball all month long. Fans are invited to cheer on their favorite teams and watch the tournament across the property all while enjoying a variety of food, drink and gaming specials throughout.


Sports & Social

Sports & Social will broadcast every game on its 52-foot LED screen as the centerpiece. Guests can enjoy delicious gameday favorites on the venue’s recently revamped menu, and enjoy $4 Michelob, Bud Light and Budweiser drafts. Reservations and specialty packages for groups are available at or by emailing

Throughout the tournament, guests can join in on the fun and compete in various contests and games. On Thursday, March 21, from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.; Friday, March 22, from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.; Saturday, March 23, from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Sunday, March 30, from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.; and Monday, April 8, from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.; local artists will be on-site hand painting custom basketballs for randomly selected winners. The basketballs will feature fun designs from pop-art to intricate patterns that will make a great conversation piece in any home. Each design session will be unique, utilizing different methods, like spray painting and screen printing, to create the artwork.


Donation to The Chosen League

Hand-painted basketballs that feature motifs tied to Philly’s basketball history, including one featuring the five legendary Philly head college hoop coaches who led their teams to multiple March tournament appearances and one highlighting The Palestra, known in Philly as the “Cathedral of College Basketball,” will be on display at Sports & Social. Following the tournament, the basketballs will be donated to The Chosen League, a local nonprofit players’ league for high school students.

“We’re always looking for ways to elevate the March basketball experience for our guests, and supporting our community partners in the process with these hand-painted basketballs does just that by blending the art, history and style of this city so well,” said Jake Joyce, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia. “Philly has produced some basketball legends and we’re hoping that through these amazing pieces of art and our partnership with The Chosen League, we can help inspire the next generation of Philly stars.”

But that’s not all! Fans in Philly and beyond are invited to join Sports & Social’s $1 Million Bracket Challenge. Visit  to enter your men’s college basketball bracket between Sunday, March 17 through Thursday, March 21 at noon. Participants with a submitted perfect bracket at the end of the series can win $1 million and guests who correctly predict 60+ games can win up to $25,000. Gift cards will also be awarded to the best national and local brackets.


FanDuel Sportsbook and Lounge

Located within Sports & Social, FanDuel Sportsbook & Lounge is the perfect place to place a bet on the tournament. Guests can bet on all college teams, unlike sportsbooks in New Jersey which are banned from accepting bets on Jersey-based college teams.

To add some bling to your bracket, guests who place a $100 parlay or more on the tournament will be in the running to win an exclusive Rolex. Parlays made between Tuesday, March 19 through Saturday, April 6 are eligible. The drawing will take place on Saturday, April 6 at 8:00 p.m.

“Guests are gearing up for all the basketball action, and this year more guests are wagering on the first-half spreads and totals, rather than the full game,” said Bryan Newman, Sportsbook General Manager at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia. “By wagering on the first half, guests can get a quicker payout for their bets. Whatever guests decide to do, we’re excited to host the best fans in the world here at FanDuel Sportsbook and Lounge.”

No matter where guests choose to dine, drink, play or bet on the games, Live! Philadelphia has perfect viewing locations with hundreds of LED TV screens around the casino floor, including at Center Bar, which offers 360-degree views of the gaming action, drink specials and live entertainment from Philly’s favorite bands.
