Sportsbooks vs. Sports Betting Apps: Which is Right for You?

People Sports Betting in Sportsbook and on Sports Betting Apps


It’s a great time to be a sports fan. Sports have returned to their somewhat-normal schedules, and football is well underway with the current season. To make it even better, the much-anticipated Circa | Sports sportsbook is opening its doors at the end of October as the largest sportsbook in Vegas history. The sportsbook is so big that the casino is built around it. It can’t get much better than that.

But wait — it can. Circa Sports also has an app, meaning that if you have a phone with iOS or Android, you can have your bookie right in your pocket and place bets wherever you are within Nevada or Colorado.

With all this excitement, what’s the best way to bet on sports?

There’s no wrong way, but when you’re betting on sports, you want to know your options and make the choice that works best for you. The two options are sportsbook betting in person or using sports betting apps. Which one is right for you? Which will give you the most enjoyment? Here’s a breakdown.

Sports Betting Apps


Because of technology, you have everything you need to place a bet in your pocket. The Circa Sports betting app allows you to place a bet as if you were physically in the casino. You can do it on your own schedule and bet on what fits your needs best. Once you confirm that you’re in Nevada or Colorado, you’re good to go. You’ll see the odds of all the sports and the same betting menu that are in the casinos. You’ll also be able to submit picks when contests are going on.

Because the app was built with Circa Sports’ own wish list in mind, there are aggressive, higher-than-most betting limits for everyone — even winners. You can include future bets in parlays and place two-sided yes/no future bets. Even better? You can deposit and withdraw account funds remotely.

As long as you’re in Nevada or Colorado, you can place your bets from anywhere: from your couch, while running errands, at the dinner table — wherever it’s most comfortable and convenient for you. That means that whenever the urge strikes, you can place a bet on a game or outcome.

The option to bet from your phone is convenient and easy, but there is certainly something to be said about the magic of physically betting in a sportsbook. In Las Vegas, you have a few options. You can visit the Circa Sportsbooks at  Golden Gate, the D, or now at Circa Resort & Casino in Downtown Las Vegas.

Circa Las Vegas is bringing back the old-school days of sports betting. You’ll feel transported to the 1920s — all while enjoying the modern luxuries of today. At the Circa Sportsbook, we have dedicated 3 floors to sports betting how it should be and have created the largest sportsbook in the world. Sports betting apps are great, but if you are in town, stop in to the sportsbook to feel the high-energy excitement of betting in person.

You’ll be able to watch countless screens at once. If you’re betting on multiple games, it’ll be much easier to keep track of them all. You’ll also have access to legendary dining and drink options when betting at Circa Resort, so you can celebrate your winnings in style. Plus, when it’s halftime or after the game has ended, you can play standard casino games like slots and table games.

Getting in your Circa | Sports betting at the D? BarCanada® is the perfect Las Vegas sports bar to keep the action going while enjoying a specialty cocktail. With 85-inch TVs showing all major sporting events and on-site programming by VSiN, you can stay up-to-date with the latest games before or after heading to the sportsbook.

Whether you bet in person or on the app, you’re sure to have an amazing time. You can enjoy all Circa Sports has to offer in the comfort of your own home, or you can experience it all in person right here in Las Vegas.

When it comes to choosing an app or a sportsbook, the only thing that really matters when sportsbetting is that you are having a great time, and (hopefully) winning some big bucks while cheering on your favorite team.
