Disclaimer: The Circa Sports sportsbook is not yet live in Colorado. We will update this review and bonus offers once Circa goes live.
The newest sports betting brand in Las Vegas is also coming to Colorado.
Thanks to the deal it signed with Century Casinos in February, Circa Sports will be one of the casino’s internet sports betting operators.
Century Casinos and Circa Sports have applied for all the necessary licenses to hopefully launch the Circa Sports betting app by May 1.
Century Casinos owns and operates Century Casino & Hotels in Cripple Creek and Central City, CO. The casino also has two more master licenses available for sports betting partnerships in Colorado.
If Circa Sportsbook hopes to compete in the new Colorado online and mobile sports betting market, it is going to have to offer competitive bonuses to draw in new players. This includes no-deposit bonuses, risk-free bets and deposit bonuses.
DraftKings Sportsbook, a market leader in other states, awards new players a risk-free first bet and a 20% deposit bonus.
FanDuel Sportsbook, also a market leader in other states, offers new players a risk-free bet of up to $500.
We will update this section with information regarding the Circa Sports welcome bonus when the information becomes available.

In addition to no-deposit bonuses, risk-free bets and deposit bonuses, the Circa Sports sportsbook will have to run regular promotions to draw in new players and retain existing ones in Colorado.
Most online and mobile sportsbooks provide promos surrounding high-profile sporting events, including the Super Bowl, March Madness, the NBA Finals and the MLB World Series.
Here are some other examples of other Circa promotions:
Circa hosts the Circa Sports Million Pro Football contest in Nevada throughout the NFL season.
It costs $1,000 to enter. Each entry will make five picks per week against the spread. There’s a $1,000,000 first prize, plus $143,750 awarded monthly and another nine season-end prizes.
Entries can submit weekly picks for the contest using the Circa Sports mobile app in Nevada. No other sports betting operation in Nevada allows access to both the sportsbook and contests in the same app.
Circa Sports could run a similar contest in Colorado during the 2020-21 NFL season.
Circa Resort & Casino is the brothers Derek and Greg Stevens‘ newest hotel and casino project. It is currently under construction in downtown Las Vegas.
Construction is underway on the site of the since-demolished Las Vegas Club, Mermaids Casino and Glitter Gulch strip club.
Circa should be ready to open by December.
The plan is to include a three-story, stadium-style centerpiece sportsbook on the property with a giant multimillion-dollar video display, an overhanging bar, and a two-story production studio for the Vegas Stats and Information Network media company.
The Stevens say it will be the largest sportsbook in Las Vegas and the flagship retail operation for the emerging Circa Sports brand.
The brand already includes a sportsbook:
All three launched in June 2019.
If all goes according to plan, the Circa Sports Colorado mobile sports betting app will be taking bets a good six months before Circa Resort & Casino and its Circa Sports flagship sportsbook.
The Century Casinos-Circa Sports deal is a 15-year online sports betting agreement that includes a market access fee, a share of net gaming revenue and a minimum revenue guarantee payable to Century Casinos annually.
Although the agreement is for online and mobile sports betting, Circa Sports could also introduce satellite retail sports betting operations at Century Casinos’ Colorado locations.
Circa Sports will be a legal and regulated online sports betting operator in Colorado once its partner Century Casinos is granted a sports betting license by the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission.
A federal ban on sports betting was lifted in 2018. On Nov. 5, 2019, Colorado voters supported a referendum giving the state the right to pass sports betting legislation.
Currently, the state is defining its sports betting regulations and hopes to launch the market on May 1.
To place a bet at Circa Sports in Colorado, you must be 21 years or older and physically present in the state. Circa Sports verifies your age using your Social Security information and geolocation software on your mobile device.
You don’t need to be a Colorado resident to bet with Circa Sports, but you do need to be within the state at the time you wager.
All Colorado sportsbooks need a license, and only brick-and-mortar casinos can apply. Circa Sports has partnered with Century Casinos and its Century Casino & Hotel locations in Cripple Creek and Central City.
Circa Sports Nevada provides a whole range of bet types and betting options. The same should be available in Colorado, including:
Sports fans will find that they can bet on just about everything at Circa Sports in Colorado. Here’s a sport-by-sport rundown:
As well as these popular sports, you could also enjoy betting on international sports, such as cycling, darts, rugby union, rugby league and Australian rules football at Circa Sports.
You can place bets with Circa Sports wherever you are in Colorado using the mobile app. It is available for both Apple and Android devices.
Installation instructions for both are on the Circa Sports website. Just go to the site using your mobile device’s browser and follow the prompts.
Stadium Technology software powers the Circa Sports mobile betting app in Nevada. Several other Nevada sportsbook apps use its software; however, the Circa app is the only operations built exclusively by Stadium.
All indications reveal that Stadium’s software will power the Circa Sports mobile betting app in Colorado.
The user interface is easy to navigate and the software is intuitive. What separates the Circa Sports mobile betting app from the competition is:
Fortunately, the Circa Sports mobile app allows its Colorado customers to sign up and fund their accounts.
It will offer a variety of deposit methods, including:
Circa Sports is dedicated to providing customer service to betting novices and sharps alike.
The organization claims to offer sports betting “the way it used to be, the way it should be, with a personal touch, the old-school way.”
Who remembers when your bookie knew your name, your favorite team, wrote your ticket by hand and paid you with a smile when you won?
Circa Sports aims to bring that energy back with a “guests first” philosophy that includes employing the best oddsmakers and providing excellent customer service.
Even employing current technology, the best market and individual research will not provide that personal touch. However, the Circa Sports sportsbook does deliver on the promise of convenience, flexible betting limits and a competitive wagering menu.
Circa Sports also employs dedicated customer service reps to handle any issue. The team can be reached by email at email@example.com.
Circa Sports is dedicated to responsible gaming as evidenced by the following statement from the Circa Sports at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino website:
“Circa Sports at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino encourages you to gamble responsibly. For problem gambling information and assistance, call the 24-hour confidential Problem Gambling Helpline at 1-800-522-4700 or visit www.WhenTheFunStops.org.”
Circa Sports isn’t the most widely recognized name in sports betting now; however, it might be in 2021. At the least, Colorado will have a Circa sportsbook mobile betting app running in partnership with Century Casinos.
The Century Casino & Hotel properties in Cripple Creek and Central City might even have a Circa Sports satellite operating.
Circa Resort & Casino should open in downtown Las Vegas by December. It will reportedly house the largest sportsbook in the world, cementing the Circa name in sports betting.
Add all that to the sportsbook inside the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, satellite sportsbook at The D Las Vegas Casino & Hotel and the Circa Sports Nevada mobile sports betting app, and Circa Sports is on the verge of becoming unforgettable.
If Circa Sports brings competitive promos and bonuses to new players in Colorado’s online and mobile sports betting market, it certainly will be a name to remember.
