Circa Las Vegas in the News


Masks come off in blue states. Residents wonder: Is it too soon, or long overdue? by Fenit Nirappil, Jane Gottlieb, Ryan Slattery, and Katherine Kam of The Washington Post

Officials credit the mandate’s end for a spike in tourism, including at Circa Resort & Casino, where reservations surged.

John Kitchen, 47, of Lexington, Ky., returned to the city he normally visits four or five times a year for the first time since the pandemic started. He wears a mask all day in his job as a regional manager for a medical device manufacturer and wants Las Vegas to be his escape. ‘Vegas is about seeing people, enjoying people and having a good time,’ Kitchen said as he waited to swim in Circa’s rooftop pool on a sunny day in February. ‘It’s a social world we all live in, and the mask mandate has had a negative influence on that.’

Craig Van Hoesen, a Circa bartender, said his hearing loss made orders harder to understand with a mask mandate. ‘It was difficult to have conversations with people when you both have a mask on and there is loud music,’ Van Hoesen, 40, said. ‘I’m glad we’re back to normal.’

Experts: Nevada’s casino industry can’t ‘bury its head’ over cryptocurrency by Howard Stutz of The Nevada Independent

“Downtown casino owner Derek Stevens wasn’t sure how his customers would respond eight years ago when he began accepting Bitcoin for select non-gaming transactions at the D Las Vegas and Golden Gate… Stevens eventually had a cryptocurrency exchange kiosk – similar to an automated teller machine – installed at D Las Vegas. When he opened Circa Resort & Casino in October 2020, a similar machine was added to that property.

That’s when he noticed a change. Instead of converting cryptocurrency to cash, people use the machines to exchange their cash for cryptocurrency.”
