Colorado bettors need to get used to the name Circa Sports. The Las Vegas sportsbook is crossing state lines and setting up a mobile betting app in the state that very recently launched online sports betting. We reported back in February that Circa Sports landed a Colorado casino partnership.
“We’re going to take what Circa Sports has been doing in Nevada and we’re excited about expanding the operation to Colorado,” Golden Gate and D Las Vegas owner Derek Stevens said to Todd Dewey of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Stevens is pushing Circa Sports as the app where seasoned bettors should go. He’s looking to stake his claim in Colorado and attract a dedicated user base. Circa Sports is set up with retail casinos in Las Vegas and mobile sports betting in Colorado, but Stevens says the company is not planning on expanding into other states at this time.
Why Colorado As The First State Outside of Nevada?
“Right now, we’re really going to be focused on Colorado,” he said. “We love the Colorado market. The regulatory environment is optimal. But we certainly want to grow Circa Sports in other jurisdictions down the road.
“Colorado is set up for two key elements. The first is remote registration and the second is remote funding. That really sets the table for good access.”
By allowing for remote registration, sportsbooks don’t need to have a brick-and-mortar location in Colorado. Instead, bettors can simply register via their preferred mobile sports betting app.
Colorado online sports betting launched on May 1. Circa Sports will join a group of in-state operators that includes DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, and BetRivers. FanDuel has already inked an exclusive partnership with the Denver Broncos and they’re offering crazy promotions to try and set themselves apart from the competition.
Circa Sports is entering a competitive, yet wide-open market. For Colorado bettors, they are another intriguing option to consider when live sports return.
