High-profile casino resorts in Las Vegas, Nevada, direct most of their attention to their casino floor. Customer loyalty reward programs are mainly geared towards casino play. While most of these venues also offer a land-based sportsbook, they are viewed more as an amenity as opposed to a primary source of revenue.
Long-time Las Vegas casino operator Derek Stevens is moving in a much different direction with his latest casino and hotel resort. Circa Resort & Casino is the first brand new gaming venue to be built from the ground up in the downtown area of Las Vegas since 1980. The doors opened in late October to rave reviews.
Circa’s casino floor is impressive as compared to other downtown area gaming venues. However, the Circa sportsbook sets the standard for the entire Las Vegas region, including the famed Strip.
Stevens is an avid sports bettor by his own right. Past exploits betting on events such as the annual men’s basketball NCAA Tournament have become the stuff of legend. His passion for sports and sports betting is evident in Circa’s overall design.
The owner of D Las Vegas and Golden Gate has gone out of his way to attract avid sports bettors to his latest downtown casino. Right off the bat, Circa boasts the biggest sportsbook in the world. This is guaranteed to be a destination on its own for sports fans and bettors alike, also those who already enjoy other sportsbooks such as Borgata, FanDuel, and FOX Bet.
The book expands to multiple levels covering three floors. There is a total of 350 seats and a capacity for 1,000 patrons. Even more guests can get in on all the action with views of games from surrounding gaming areas, bars, and restaurants.
There is a three-story screen that dominates the entire interior of the property. Even more impressive is the massive outdoor screen that is part of the Stadium Swim facility. The width expands across 143 feet and it is 40 feet high.
This swimming complex is open to the public 365 days a year. There are six different temperature-controlled pools that offer heated water during the winter months.
A few of Stadium Swim’s other features include:
Swim-up bars in the pools
Two large bars featuring frozen drinks
Multiple dining locations
More than 30 cabanas
A DJ booth and live performance stage
Covered gaming areas
The Stadium Club sits three stories above street level as the focal point of the Fremont Street Experience. This was designed to be the best outdoor environment to watch live sporting events in Las Vegas.
The tagline “A sportsbook so big we built a casino around it’ says it all. This book has its own broadcast studio. The Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN) broadcasts live every day. Sports bettors can take advantage of in-depth analysis and insider tips from industry professionals as well as prominent athletes.
For this football season alone, Circa offered two separate contests with a $1 million guaranteed prize to each winner.
