Much ado about a nothing line in the Rebel by Ron Flatter of

“Another futures bookie is gone. This one hurts. Paul Zilm, the man most responsible for Circa Sports becoming a serious competitor in horse-racing futures, is leaving his job. His last day is Sunday, March 21. Family matters have Zilm’s attention. He is getting married next year, and before that his daughter graduates from high school. While Zilm might still have arm’s-length input on Circa’s Kentucky Derby futures, this is a body blow to the Las Vegas racebook scene.

Working with sportsbook director Matt Metcalf, Zilm took full advantage of owner Derek Stevens’s credo to sacrifice a big chunk of his casino’s hold in order to give customers true value in futures betting. Circa was the best thing to happen to racing since Johnny Avello left the Wynn – and his seminal Derby futures – to go to DraftKings Sportsbook 2½ years ago. Racing futures may be strictly niche, but Circa’s dedication to them came along last spring when they were sorely needed, at least to create some competition for William Hill Nevada.

Flamingo Road, will be Circa’s first outside of Stevens’ hotel-casino properties in downtown Las Vegas, which include Circa, Golden Gate and D Las Vegas. Circa’s second satellite will be in Henderson at The Pass, formerly Eldorado Casino, and is set to open sometime next month, Stevens said during a phone interview last week.

To commemorate Stevens’ tradition, Circa sportsbook took $10,000 limit bets on its mobile app Sunday on the opening lines of the NCAA Tournament. ‘We’re just trying to let people know that this is the place to come if you want to bet large amounts on the app and not have to plead your case for larger limits,’ Circa sportsbook director Matthew Metcalf said. ‘It went really well.
