Before becoming a casino owner, Derek Stevens used to fly from his hometown of Detroit to Las Vegas to bet on sports and make a weekend of it. So it’s not surprising that the first casino he’s built from scratch has an emphasis on sports betting. Circa has been open for three months now (the hotel rooms open this week), and Stevens talks about how his guests have been responding to the sports book, the betting options, and the spectacular Stadium Swim, the pool area that remains open during the winter, whereas most other casino pools are closed. Stevens spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros overlooking the sports book at Circa for a keynote session and the Betting on Sports America virtual conference, held in early December. With the final GGB Podcast of 2020, we wish all our listeners a Happy New Year and much prosperity.
