17 August 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Football in Las Vegas just got even bigger. Circa Resort & Casino – home to the world’s largest sportsbook – is ready to kick off the 2023/2024 professional season with touchdown-worthy parties, new offerings, sports betting contests and more.

Taking things to the next level – three levels, that is – the adults-only downtown Las Vegas casino-resort has expanded its sportsbook’s footprint with 20 new seats, now with a viewing capacity of over 1,000 for every major football game of the season. Featuring a 78-million-pixel screen and three stories, the book will also debut new Circa Sports Suites that are available to reserve on Saturday and Sunday game days.

The expansion is only one chapter of the epic story that will be this football season at Circa. Other happenings include the launch of the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame; a $14 million, no rake prize for Circa Sports’ professional football contest; and one of the biggest Big Game parties in the city. Outside of the sportsbook, Circa will show every game of the professional football season with full audio on all televisions property-wide, including the 46 televisions at MEGA BAR and at Overhang, the bar that boasts a bird’s eye view of the sportsbook.

“All eyes are on Las Vegas for football this year, so we knew we had to up the ante in downtown Las Vegas,” said Circa CEO Derek Stevens. “Football is going to be larger than life at Circa and our team has had a blast planning to bring this to life this year.”
