Las Vegas to get its first, brand-new casino in decades this October
By Bob Garcia
The Circa is going to open ahead of schedule when it launches next month
The plans to open the brand-new Circa Las Vegas casino this coming December have been brought forward, and the operator is getting everything ready to open the brand-new gambling venue in October. The initial date was modified after the Nevada Gaming Commission granted a gaming license to the casino late last week, and the new opening date was set for October 28. This casino facility, owned by the Stevens brothers, will be the first Fremont Street casino to be built from scratch since 1980.
The same brothers also own The D and Golden Gates Casinos that are also located in downtown Las Vegas. When the construction of this project was first announced in January 2019, the operator stated that the casino would feature the world’s biggest sportsbook and a hotel tower of 44 stories. Additionally, back in June, the owners announced that this property was intended to be adult-only and that there would be a restriction on people 21 and under from entering the property in general, not just the gambling floor.
According to a recent report from Las Vegas Sun, this addition to the long list of casinos in Sin City will generate at least 1,500 jobs, which will be a great help to the already struggling Las Vegas economy. “We’ve seen that more and more people are coming to Las Vegas,” co-owner Derek Stevens told the outlet. “The fact that we can bring some good news and some excitement, that has me the most excited right now.” The gaming area will be opened right before Halloween, but the hotel service won’t be open for business until later.
