Feeling lucky? Bettor places money on Gators in first wager at new Las Vegas resort with world’s largest sportsbook
Florida was represented during the opening of a major sportsbook in Las Vegas this week.
Circa Sports tweeted out a picture of someone placing $20 for Florida to win the national championship, which would pay $940. It was noted as the first bet at Circa, which opened this week, and has been described as by its owner as the world’s largest sports betting center.
Circa Resort & Casino boasts a six-pool rooftop swimming stadium he expects will attract thousands of people a day, the Associated Press reported.
Doors opened on Wednesday at 12:01 a.m. to adults 21 and older, with facial coverings and temperature scans required due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Circa is the first new property to open downtown since the Sundance in 1980. That became Fitzgeralds, which Stevens and Circa co-owner, brother Greg Stevens, bought in 2011 and renamed D Las Vegas. The brothers also own the Golden Gate, which opened in 1906.
KTNV Channel 13 Las Vegas gave a glimpse of what the sportsbook offers, and what makes it different. Brian Musberger, the CEO of VSIN Booth, said it’s unlike anything else in the world. The sports book has 78 million pixels on its screen, and seats for more than 1,000 people.
