Whether you’re at home, exploring Nevada, or simply occupied by something else, it can sometimes be difficult to head to the Circa Sportsbook in person to place your bet. Don’t worry; for these situations and any other time you’d like to try out mobile sports betting in Nevada, we have you covered with the Circa | Sports mobile app. It’s the best sports betting app for on-the-go gambling in Vegas.

To learn more about how to bet on a sports app, we’ve created this guide to mobile sports betting in Nevada. Use it to get started on your app-based gambling adventures.


How the Circa | Sports Mobile Sports Betting App Works


Location Triangulation

Nevada gaming systems are only intended to work within the state of Nevada. This means that the app will need to track your location to make sure you’re in the correct area before allowing you to place a bet. It may do this using a combination of your phone’s GPS signal, IP address, and wireless access point. While you may be able to log on and see the betting odds if you’re out of state, if you try to place a bet, it will be rejected.


Person Funding Circa | Sports Betting App


Funding an Account

While gambling is remote, funding an account for a Nevada mobile sports app requires you to make an in-person visit to the coordinating sportsbook. For the Circa | Sports mobile app, this means you’ll have to make a stop at Circa Resort, Golden Gate Casino, or the D Las Vegas. The process is simple enough:

  • Complete your mobile wagering account application online to save some time, or do it in person when you arrive.
  • Bring your government-issued picture ID along with the cash you want to deposit.
  • Allow 10 minutes for the application to be processed and your cash to be deposited into your account.
  • Keep in mind that you’ll need to be at least 21 to bet in Nevada, which is one of the reasons your ID must be checked in person.

If you already have an activated Circa | Sports mobile wagering account, you can fund your account through the app! Just log in and go to Menu → My Account → Account Deposit to get started with Circa Sports Play+!

Placing Bets

Once your account is created and funded, you can start betting right away on nearly any sport. Popular options include the NFL, NCAA football and basketball, the NBA, and the NHL. Your odds will be the same as they are at the casino.

While each mobile sports betting app is a little different, on the Circa | Sports app, you can bet on fair lines, odds, and point spreads. There are also options for futures wagering, where you pick how a team will be faring by the end of the season. You can even join sports betting contests right from your phone.

Before you place your bet, pay close attention to the odds, as they may change quickly. It may take you a while to get used to the app’s interface, so for your first few bets, give yourself plenty of time before the game starts so you don’t accidentally miss your shot.

Most apps have a set minimum and maximum bet. The minimum bet is usually $2 to $5, while the maximum bet might be anywhere from $500 to $3,000. If you want to bet more, you’ll have to do so in person at the physical sportsbook.

Getting Paid & Enjoying Your Earnings

If you hit it big, congratulations! Now you need to get paid. Usually, you will have to return to the casino where you signed up to cash out. Once there, you can get your cash right away.

Some mobile sports betting apps may allow you to request a check in the mail as well, though this will take a few weeks. And in some cases, you may have the option to withdraw funds directly into a prepaid account, which you can then spend with a debit card. Options vary, so check the terms of the app you’re looking at before signing up.
