Circa Las Vegas opened what it calls the largest sportsbook in the world today. The pandemic has heavily impacted travel and tourism, but CEO Derek Stevens wants to help reestablish Las Vegas as a sports betting destination.

The $1 billion resort is highlighted by its three-story, 1,000 seat auditorium and a 78-million-pixel video wall that requires 10 people to operate. Sports betting media company VSiN also has a dedicated broadcast studio in the building.

On top of the resort is a rooftop with a 143-foot TV and six pools that will have poolside mobile wagering kiosks. Circa also boasts “Nevada’s longest indoor bar” at 165-feet with 40 double-stacked TVs.
