Circa Resort & Casino rolls out the neon carpet for future holders of Vegas Vickie NF

15 June 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Downtown Las Vegas' Circa Resort & Casino is rolling out the neon carpet for future holders of its Vegas Vickie NFT. The minting of this utility NFT will take place soon and launch with four original collections by prolific artist Jason "Borbay" Borbet of the iconic kicking cowgirl neon sign, Vegas Vickie. In addition to owning these distinctive digital collectibles, benefits include access to fun-filled VIP experiences at Circa including an invitation to Vegas' first event exclusively for NFT holders, the Vegas Vickie NFT Summer Bash, 1-3 August.

Featuring four unique collections, each tier of the Vegas Vickie NFT will showcase the 26-ft. tall blonde cowgirl in various styles. This will range from the 1/1 sole digital copy of Borbay's original painting plus a glass print of the work; 54 iterations of Vegas Vickie that resemble a full deck of cards (jokers are always wild!); 250 versions inspired by slot machine icons; and 2,500 works designed to emulate a poker chip.

Not only will the holders of the Vegas Vickie NFT possess a piece of timeless history, they also will be able to participate in a variety of perks at Circa and become eligible for ongoing gamification. Every level of NFT holder will be invited to party it up at the Vegas Vickie NFT Summer Bash celebration. This three-day getaway will be filled with surprises and activations, including a party at Circa's rooftop aquatheater, Stadium Swim, and an exclusive welcome bag.

"When Borbay approached us about turning Vegas Vickie into an NFT, we knew we wanted it to go beyond the digital space and have real-world benefits," said Jeff Victor, Vice President of Operations at Circa Resort & Casino. "We're excited to host the first major Vegas event exclusively for the NFT community. Our first Summer Bash is an opportunity for us to bring Vegas Vickie NFT owners together for the time of their lives and create a space where they can network and learn more about downtown Las Vegas."

Borbay said, "This Vegas Vickie NFT has been years in the making, and it's exciting to finally have a mint date secured. The Circa team has been incredibly supportive every step of the way, and to provide this level of utility in the NFT space is unparalleled. As a lifelong fan of downtown Las Vegas, I'm thrilled to be a part of this historic moment for both the NFT space and the city."

Originally designed by Charles F. Bernard, Vegas Vickie took her place on the world-famous Fremont Street Experience in 1980, welcoming visitors from the rooftop of Bob Stupak's Glitter Gulch Casino. Derek gingerly brought her down in 2016 and sent her to Las Vegas-based sign company YESCO for a multi-year refurbishment. Through research including Mr. Bernard's original drawings, great care was given to put her back to her original paint and neon color scheme. The sign now lives as a signature art piece in Circa's lobby.
