In Las Vegas and the proposal to open next month’s Circa Resort and Casino has reportedly taken a step forward after the gaming licence request for the underbuilding property was accepted by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
According to an article from the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Thursday, the $1 billion downtown venue is the brainchild of American casino developer Derek Stevens and is expected to start accepting guests from the 28 October evening. The completed 44-story facility is expected to feature 777 hotel rooms ranging from 60 deluxe suites to a 7,000 sq ft casino offering a range of 1,350 slots as well as 49 gaming tables spread over two floors.
Stevens’ 3 Corners LLC is also responsible for the adjacent Golden Gate Hotel and Casino as well as the nearby The D Las Vegas and is also planning to add to its newest property a three-level Circa Sports branded sportsbook and a sports betting TV studio. The newspaper outlined that the completed project is due in addition to hosting six restaurants and offering visitors to its fifth floor the opportunity to enjoy six pools with panoramic views through its three-tier ‘aquatheater’ Stadium Swim.
Detroit native Stevens officially told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the application for a gambling licence for his Circa Resort and Casino is now expected for approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission at the next hearing of this body on 24 September. He allegedly explained that subsequent approval would allow the newest casino in Nevada to immediately start welcoming gamblers even though its hotel is not scheduled to open until December due to a disrupted construction schedule for coronavirus.
Moreover, Period Resort and Casino is expected to come complete with a poker room and a 982-space parking garage being promoted as The Mahal Garage. It concluded by stating that the pending licence application would also allow Stevens to open a satellite Circa Sports-branded sportsbook at the 716-room Tuscany Suites and Casino site, which lies some seven miles south but just a stone’s throw away from Las Vegas development by the giant Bally.
