CEO and developer Derek Stevens revealed, on October 28, 2020 his newest Downtown Las Vegas venture, Circa Resort & Casino, will debut, marking the launch of what he describes as the world’s largest sportsbook.
Previously scheduled for a launch in December 2020, the 1,25 million-square-foot integrated casino resort will open ahead of schedule with its first five floors of amenities and state-of-the-art parking hub – Garage Mahal-. The resort will have about 1,000 workers upon completion.
Talking about how the timetable to launch had been abbreviated, he said: “Sometimes life throws you curve balls, and 2020 has been an unpredictable year for the entire world.
“However, thanks to the creativity and ingenuity from our partners at McCarthy Building Companies Inc and Tré Builders, we can move forward on this accelerated path and have an opening unlike Las Vegas has experienced. We are excited to see what the future holds and to give visitors and locals something to celebrate.”
Circa ‘s three-story, stadium-style sportsbook is of key interest, featuring a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen that can be viewed throughout its two-story casino with a capacity to host up to 1,000 people.
The third floor will have a dedicated broadcast studio for Vegas Stats and Information Network (VSiN), which is operated by Stevens’ sports betting venture Circa Sports.
The two-story casino itself will feature 1,350 slot machines and 49 table games that are based on the original principles of old-school hospitality, the firm said, offering a modern casino experience.
