The popularity of sports betting is increasing | Raccoon Valley Radio
Sports betting at Iowa casinos has taken off since it became legal in recent years. State law allows up to three different sports bets per casino, and the Wild Rose Casino & Resort Jefferson hit that maximum on Friday. Circa joins DraftKings and Bet Rivers as a bookmaker. A contingent from the Circa Casino & Resort in Las Vegas made the trip to Jefferson for the occasion.
CEO Derek Stevens was on hand and told Raccoon Valley Radio his company is happy to be in Iowa and Greene County. “We have found some great people to work with. Our stay here has been wonderful and we look forward to the future.
Just a few months ago, Stevens opened the world’s largest sports betting site, located in Las Vegas. The outdoor portion of the facility features a 40-foot-high TV screen hovering over six swimming pools with a hotel and a large indoor sports betting center. Also known for his generosity, Stevens paid for more than 2,000 flights to Las Vegan to bring people to help the city’s economy during the height of the pandemic.
