Circa sports book is as mind-blowing as advertised by Case Keefer of the Las Vegas Sun

“Anyone visiting what’s being billed as the largest sports book in the world will surely agree — many sci-fi film command centers don’t look as opulent as Stevens’ new venue. The 78 million-pixel screen, which reportedly cost more than $20 million, beams across nearly the entire casino floor, dazzling those who approach with its clarity and contrast.

“The stadium-style venue is described as a “one of a kind betting experience” by Circa sportsbook director Matt Metcalf, with single-seat, cushioned chairs in front of a 78-million-pixel, high-definition screen; a dedicated broadcast studio with real-time, in-depth analyses; and enough room for up to 1,000 bettors. Industry watchers say the glamorous new offering will put pressure on other properties to invest in their sportsbooks, even as the lion’s share of many sportsbooks’ revenue comes from online bets.

It will feature a three-story sportsbook with the biggest prize contests ever offered to players. Also, outside pools at the Circa Resort Hotel will have sports theme restaurants and the nation’s largest screens devoted to 24/7 sports action. In all, an opportunity to test both casual and full-time bettors to leave their homes for a unique experience.

When you walk into the sportsbook space it is a WOW moment between the screens, the odds boards, the stadium style seating, and the expansiveness of the room. We believe it to be the best sportsbook in the world and we can’t wait for all of our Circa Sports players to enjoy it with us.’


Circa sportsbook welcomes sharp bettors by Jim Barnes of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“At Circa Sports, a cat-and-mouse game is a lot more fun than shooting fish in a barrel. The downtown sportsbook has made a splash since opening in June 2019 at the Golden Gate and the D Las Vegas, welcoming action from sharp bettors, posting the worldwide opening lines for college football and offering often-better futures odds than its competitors. Now, with its flagship sportsbook set to open at the new Circa casino Wednesday, the book hopes more bettors will notice what it has to offer and help make it a leader in the industry. Circa sportsbook director Matt Metcalf, 41, said he has put together a team that revels in mixing it up with sharp bettors instead of severely limiting or banning winners.
