Circa Resort and Casino CEO and developer Derek Stevens has confirmed that the resort is ahead of schedule for opening, with plans to open its doors on October 28, 2020.
The resort will be the downtown’s first such entity to be built from the ground up in over three decades. The 1.25 million-square-foot, 777-room property will stand as the tallest structure north of the Las Vegas strip, and will house a two-story casino that contains 1,360 slot machines and 49 table games.
Stevens had originally earmarked a December 2020 launch following a 22-month construction process. Upon completion, the resort will have approximately 1,000 employees.
“Sometimes life throws you curveballs, and 2020 has been an unpredictable year for the entire world,” said Stevens.
“However, thanks to the creativity and ingenuity from our partners at McCarthy Building Companies Inc. and Tré Builders, we can move forward on this accelerated path and have an opening unlike Las Vegas has experienced. We are excited to see what the future holds and to give visitors and locals something to celebrate.”

Striving to become “a mecca for sports gamblers,” fans will be able to take in three levels of action taking place on a 78-million-pixel high-definition screen, billed as “the largest sportsbook screen in history”. The Vegas Stats and Information Network will also have its own on-site studio offering bettors in-depth analysis from a roster of experts.
Another of Circa’s key features will be an outdoor pool amphitheater. Its six rooftop pools will be operated 365 days a year and boast an almost 14-million-pixel screen playing the day’s sporting events.
