Las Vegas for March Madness


I just had a probable Vegas trip fall through :-( so I am consoling myself by speculating about another possible Vegas trip. Before I start looking into any serious planning, though, I had a few questions:

Considering the folks I am thinking of asking coming along, cost will be an issue, so my instinct would be to focus more on downtown, or at least to avoid the major Strip properties.

Is it even worth trying to set up camp at the top-tier sportsbooks (which I have a sense are Caesars and Westgate)? Or will they be overcrowded by 5AM? Or are they big enough to handle huge crowds? And for the hot books, do you need to be staying at the property for the major events like March Madness or can we stay somewhere else and wander over?

I certainly want the fun/raucous crowd thing. What are the best places to go for "will have a great crowd, but you won't have to wait 2 hours in line to place a bet and you can actually find a seat"?

How does app wagering change all this, if at all?

tl;dr--What is the best way to have a fun March Madness time in Vegas if you aren't looking to break the bank?

This will be my first March Madness in town (usually coincides with Spring Break for colleges, so I'm normally in Wisky).

I'll go completely unorthodox in suggesting Green Valley Ranch. It's in the southeast part of town, about 15 minutes from the Strip, but it's one of my favorite off-Strip casinos, and it looks like their sports book is a really nice place to hang out.
