Circa Sports embarks on Nevadan expansion to Legends Casino

FanDuel and Boyd Gaming have revealed plans to expand its land-based presence in the US via its sportsbook debut in the state of Nevada.

Circa Sports is to expand its Nevadan operations into the northern region of the Silver State after detailing a collaboration with Olympia Gaming’s Legends Bay Casino.

This will see the property, which broke ground in March 2021 and is expected to open during the coming summer, become the point of Circa’s latest US sports betting offering.

Details on the new sportsbook will be announced in the coming months, with the agreement to also include access to Circa Sports’ mobile betting app.

Legends Bay Casino, which will be the first casino built from the ground up in Reno-Sparks since 1995, promises to deliver “next-level gaming, dining, and entertainment experiences to northern Nevada” that is says will “showcase the latest slots, video poker, table games, and original dining and bar concepts”.

Garry Goett, Chair, CEO and President of Olympia Companies, said: “We are proud to partner with Circa to elevate the sports betting experience at Legends Bay Casino opening this year. 

“This gives us a one-of-a-kind sports wagering offering, and creates the premier sportsbook destination in northern Nevada.”

Since launching at Derek Stevens’ Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in 2019, Circa Sports’ has subsequently expanded to sister property the D Las Vegas and Circa Resort and Casino, the first Vegas resort-casino built from the ground up in four decades. The brand is in a total of five casinos in southern Nevada, and offers mobile betting in Iowa and Colorado.

“Legends Bay Casino will be a landmark opening for northern Nevada, and we are thrilled to partner with Olympia Gaming to introduce our brand to a new part of the state,” said Circa Sports CEO Stevens. 

“We look forward to bringing an incredible sportsbook to the property, which will complement the other dynamic offerings Legends Bay will feature when it opens this year.”
