- The new sportsbook is in the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino.
- This is the first step to creating the sports betting “mecca” in the future.
LAS VEGAS – Derek Stevens’ Circa Sports Sportsbook is now open in the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino.
Stevens said that he wants his sportsbook to put the guests first. To do this, he decided to hire the best oddsmakers in Vegas. They will be able to assist new players coming to the sportsbook. The experience of these oddsmakers will also allow them to assist veteran gamblers.
“The bell has rung, and we are thrilled to be taking bets of all kinds with Circa Sports. We intend to bring that old-school Las Vegas vibe to the floor,” said Stevens.
Stevens is bringing old-school Vegas to the new age. The near 1,300-square-foot sportsbook has up to date amenities for customers to enjoy. There is a video wall in the sportsbook that has up to 18 different screens. Each screen can air various sporting events to bet on. In addition, there are also wall-to-wall LED screens that will show off the various betting odds.
On top of this, Circa Sports has also launched a sports betting app that is now available to use. The Circa Sports App will have feature all the odds that the retail sportsbook would have, including futures bets. The app is connected to the casino player’s club. The only real drawback is that you must fund your account at the retail location. You cannot do so on the app.
To celebrate the grand opening of the sportsbook, there will be a contest. The Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest has a $1.5 million prize pool. It is $1,000 to enter the contest and first place will receive $1 million. Players can play in the contest in the Circa Sports App as well.
The Golden Gate Hotel and Casino will not be the only location for Circa Sports. On June 19, Stevens will launch a satellite program. The satellite program will be based out of D Las Vegas, a sister property of the Golden Gate.
After the satellite location, Stevens will focus his efforts on opening Circa Resort and Casino. He said that this new location will be the “mecca” of all sports betting.
The new location will be built from the ground up. It is going to be a two-level casino and it will have a three-level stadium style sportsbook inside. He wants the building to be big so that people can easily identify it within Las Vegas. He is aiming to create the largest sportsbook in Las Vegas.
People can get a taste of the sports betting “mecca” by going to the Circa Sportsbook at the Golden Gate. The action will continue at the D Las Vegas on June 19. USAOnlineSportsbooks.com expects the brand-new Circa Resort and Casino to open around December of 2020.
