Circa Las Vegas

Las Vegas’ first resort-casino to be built from the ground up in 40 years, Circa Las Vegas, has good reason to celebrate. With the world’s largest sportsbook, this adults-only venue has been open for a year, one that was particularly challenging for the casino industry.

Circa Casino opened at what was arguably the height of the pandemic on October 28, 2020. This was a bold choice as the casino industry and global economy were in a state of uncertainty and turmoil.

Gaming historian and professor at UNLV, David Schwartz, offered his thoughts on the momentous occasion, saying,

It’s not at all surprising to me that a year after opening, they’re going strong. They’ve got a very good executive team, and they’ve got a wonderful facility, and they’ve got an ownership team that is very invested in downtown Las Vegas.”

Schwartz added that in his opinion, the presence of Circa has added greatly to the area, saying that the property gives people “another option and a reason to go downtown.” He referred to the venue’s parking facilities as “The garage Mahal,” saying that it has redefined the concept of transportation to downtown Las Vegas.

Schwartz also mentioned Resorts World as another property that he considers to be a part of a new era of development in the city.

Derek Stevens, the owner of Circa Casino encouraged visitors to come to the venue which boasts the world’s largest sports betting center and a six-pool rooftop swimming stadium.
