The Circa Sports brand debuted in Nevada in 2019. The new sportsbook operation is available at three Derek Stevens properties in downtown Las Vegas. Circa Sports has satellite sportsbooks at The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate casinos. The third property, Circa Resort and Casino, has a multi-level sportsbook and is the home base for Circa Sports in Nevada.
Circa Sports in Nevada is similar but different from the same brand of the sportsbook app available in other states. The Circa Sports app offers the same odds, lines, and point spreads in all states. However, the apps in each state are not connected to each other. Apps must be downloaded and funded for each individual state regardless of the brand.
Another difference with Circa Sports and other sportsbook apps available in multiple states is that remote account setup isn’t possible in Nevada due to Nevada Gaming Control Board regulations. Players may begin to register for a Circa Sports account online and inside the app. However, all new members will have to visit a Circa Sports retail sportsbook in Nevada to complete the signup process.
Players just need to bring their mobile device, Club One rewards card and government ID in order to complete the new account signup in person. Once an account is established, a player may either fund the app or make a withdrawal in person at a casino or inside of the app with a Circa Sports Play+ account.
Circa Sports offers more wagering options than many Nevada sports betting apps. In addition to the large betting menu with unique futures options, the Circa Sports app also offers access to Circa Sports Millions and Circa Survivor contests.
One of the hidden features for the Circa Sports Nevada app is its ability to take large wagers. Unlike some other Nevada sports betting apps, the company doesn’t drastically limit players. Maximum wagers are listed clearly at Circa Sports.
This Circa Sports Nevada review breaks down how the betting app works on Android and iOS and how to deposit or cashout.
Circa Sports Nevada sportsbook loyalty program
Circa Sports customers must sign up using a Club One loyalty club card. Wagers placed in person or via app will count towards loyalty club points. Players can earn and redeem rewards at the following casinos in downtown Las Vegas:
- Circa Resort & Casino
- The D
- Golden Gate
Circa Sports doesn’t offer a specific loyalty club just for sports bettors. Club One is the same loyalty program guests use to earn points when gambling at the three properties above. Club One rewards include hotel room and dining discounts, merchandise, promotions and special event invitations.
Points from Club One can also be turned into free play to be used at machine games. Points are valued at $.01 per point. For example, 100 Club One points = $1.00 in slot free play.
Club One became instantly better with the addition of Circa Resort and Casino to the program. This new casino gives a player access to discounts at three hotels in downtown Las Vegas along with discounts to more restaurants than any other loyalty club in the area.
Sign up at Circa Sports Nevada Sportsbook
Players may download the Circa Sports Nevada app anywhere, but must sign up for an account in person at the brick and mortar Circa Sports sportsbooks inside the casinos listed above.
The initial sign-up process is simple and should take about 10-15 minutes to file paperwork in person at a Circa Sports retail location. Players can save some time starting the signup process online before visiting a Circa Sports casino.
The process might be quicker than other Nevada casinos because the staff has been taught how to sign up mobile accounts for players since opening. Not every retail sportsbook ticket writer started the job after mobile wagering became legal in Nevada.
Everyone who signs up must have a valid ID and active Club One rewards club card. You can begin the loyalty club sign-up process online before getting to the physical casino.
Circa Sports NV app review
The Circa Sports app is entirely powered by Stadium Technology software. Many Nevada sportsbook apps function using this software. The Circa Sports app uses a very simple color scheme of a white background with blue trim and black text.
Players must have an account and sign in to see Circa Sports odds in the app. This could change in future versions. The Circa Sports Nevada app is straight-forward and should be intuitive for experienced sports bettors.
The main menu once inside the app shows how much money a player has in the account along with any pending wagers. A player can choose to see the wagering section or contest entries.
The wagering section has a pull-down menu for each sport with a variety of options. Prop bets and in-play betting will be next to each game. While Circa Sports has a large general betting menu, it doesn’t have many prop bets or in-play games available.
The betslip location is slightly confusing. There are two hamburger menus available.
The hamburger menu in the upper right corner of the wagering section goes to the general menu tab. A similar hamburger menu just below it is for the bet slip. This is where players will see pending selections and wagers. A red notification will let players know if they have any wagers waiting to be confirmed.
Anyone with an account can view the contest standings and results. Contestants can view their entries and make picks directly from the app.
The home page also has a menu tab with pending wagers, account information, app settings, and more info including an FAQ section. Players can always check the house rules section of a sports betting app in case there are questionable actions in a game with a wager.
While there’s an FAQ to answer most questions, Circa Sports has a very active Twitter account and can be more helpful than most Nevada sportsbook social media accounts.
Overall, the Circa Sports app is simple in design and easy to navigate. The Stadium Technology apps sometimes have location problems, which can be an issue for some users.
Live betting at Circa Sports
The Circa Sports betting app is different from some other newer sportsbooks in Nevada. Some Nevada sports betting apps offer a massive menu with lower limits, including robust live in-play wagering. Circa Sports chooses to offer larger limits to all players and exceptional futures wagering.
Circa Sports takes a different approach than other Nevada sports betting apps. Live betting is available for some events but not all. This should change in the future as the company continues to grow. For the time being, this lags behind some of the competition.
Live betting at Circa Sports often only features moneyline, point spreads, and totals. Creating live betting odds isn’t a remote operation for Circa Sports like some other Nevada sportsbooks. The live in play odds are created in-house. This should give Circa Sports sharper live odds when available.
Sports betting options
The best feature of the Circa Sports app might be the actual betting options. The odds, point spreads, and lines should be the same on the Circa Sports app as they are at Circa Resort, The D and Golden Gate casinos. Players can make the following bets:
- Point spread (full and partial game)
- Moneyline (full and partial game)
- Totals (full and partial game)
- Parlay (games and futures)
- Round Robin
- Yes/No Futures
- In-Play (when available)
Circa Sports has a large betting menu with unique wagering opportunities that might not be found at all Nevada sportsbooks.
They are very aggressive at posting lines and odds as soon as possible. For example, Circa Sports is usually the first US sportsbook to release point spreads and totals each week for college football games.
Futures betting is a big part of the appeal of wagering at Circa Sports. This sportsbook app has some of the lowest theoretical hold for futures odds in Nevada. Players may find better odds at Circa Sports than other Nevada sports betting apps.
Parlaying futures bets is another unique wagering opportunity available by Circa Sports. For example, a player from Detroit can parlay the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, and Red Wings to win their respective championships.
Circa Sports is the only Nevada sportsbook that offers futures parlays.
Circa Sports caters to all gamblers, but has found a niche with professional and experienced sports bettors since they welcome large wagers.
The odds, point spreads, and lines are considered some of the sharpest and most fair in Nevada.
Circa Sports Software
Like mentioned above, the Circa Sports app is entirely powered by Stadium Technology software.
Some Nevada sportsbooks have been migrating to use Stadium technology software for both the back-end functionality as well as the forward-facing skin. The user interface is easy to navigate and similar to the other sports wagering apps that use only this software.
The differences from other Stadium Technology apps are the color scheme, odds, and wagering options. Another reason sportsbook operators like using Stadium Technology is that the solution for mobile is the same as the kiosks and the backend for retail locations.
The Circa Sports app software is intuitive and easy to use. While there are unique wagering options, Circa Sports only offers limited in-play wagering options.
Another downside to the app is that lines and odds are only available to those that have an active account. This should change in a future app update.
Mobile contest entries are a huge plus of the software, and Circa was the first app to do this in Nevada. This is a useful function as it can save contestants a trip to one of the Circa Sports locations in downtown Las Vegas.
Another perk for customers using Stadium Technology apps is the sportsbooks require a players club to sign up. Each wager with Circa Sports will earn One Club rewards points. This is a relatively new and expanding feature for sports wagering apps in Nevada.
Circa Sports banking options: Deposit and withdrawal methods
Circa Sports Sports Nevada accounts must first be funded in person at any Circa Sports retail sportsbook. The minimum deposit to start an account is $50. There’s a $20 minimum for all future deposits.
The following casinos will take person deposits for the Circa Sports Nevada app:
- Circa Resort & Casino
- The D Las Vegas
- Golden Gate
Funding an account after the initial in-person sign up may take place in person at any Circa Sports retail location or online with a Play+ account.
Players may withdraw funds from the Circa Sports Nevada app at the brick and mortar Circa Sports sportsbook where they initially signed up for an account.
Players may also withdraw funds using a Play+ account online.
Circa Sports prepaid card details
The Circa Sports prepaid card is fulfilled by using Play+ after a sports wagering account has been opened in person inside a Circa Sports retail location.
Play+ is used to fund or withdraw from many Nevada sports wagering accounts. The online service is an FDIC insured reloadable account that can also be used to withdraw funds from the Circa Sports sports wagering account.
A Play+ account may be opened only after a Circa Sports account is set up and funded inside of a Circa Sports retail sportsbook. The steps to set up a prepaid card account from the Circa Sports app:
- Select Menu from the home page
- Choose My Account
- Select Account Deposit or Account Withdrawal
- Join Play+
- Enter the date of birth and social security number
- Read terms and conditions
- Click agree and the account is set up to withdraw or fund an account.
The terms and conditions detail the fees associated with the Play+ account. There is no fee to have an account or deposit and withdraw funds. However, there is a $2.95 monthly fee if an account hasn’t been active for a year.
Some other fees of note:
- $2 fee to transfer funds to a bank account.
- 3% foreign transaction fee.
- Various ATM fees (Play+ is a prepaid Discover debit card).
The Circa Sports prepaid card is simple to set up and use. After setting up a Play+ account, a player may fund and withdraw from a Circa Sports account without visiting a casino again.
