Lastly, we discuss one of the top social casino apps launching the new free-to-play mobile casino application.
Circa Resort & Casino Moves Forward With Grand Opening
The coronavirus pandemic almost threw a wrench into Derek Stevens’ plans to open Circa Resort & Casino in downtown Las Vegas. While the casino and sportsbook are ready to go, hotel construction lags behind. Through the use of three previous gaming entitlements, Circa remains firm on opening to the public on Wednesday, Oct. 28. The hotel will stage a partial opening towards the end of December. Stevens purchased the former Las Vegas Club, Glitter Gulch adult club and Mermaids to build Circa. This gave him the necessary leeway to stagger the opening of Circa Resort & Casino.
Bitcoin Recent Market Gains Outpace Gold
The recent surge in Bitcoin’s BTC market value tops $13,000. This represents an impressive gain from just over $10,000 a month ago. The price of gold has creeped up 2.25 percent to $1,903 during the same timeframe. Various crypto investors have been impressed with these gains. Holding the BTC price above $12,000 as a key value level, has some investors extremely bullish on future prospects. The 30.36 percent gain against the US dollar is especially noteworthy in market performance. Confusion still surrounds BTC as a risk-on or risk-off asset. This can actually help its standing in the market as compared to the US dollar.
Downtown Las Vegas Casino Set to Open Stadium Swim
Derek Stevens’ new Circa Resort & Casino in downtown Las Vegas has been described as a sportsbook with a casino built around it. The interior sportsbook covers three floors with a capacity of 1,000 guests. The main outdoor entertainment area is Stadium Swim. It will also cover three floors with six rooftop pools. There will be cabanas, day beds, swim up bars to accommodate up to 4,000 guests a day. The highlight is a high definition screen 40 feet in the air. The vertical width of this screen spans 43 feet. The entire Stadium Swim complex sits 100 feet above street level.
