Something had to be done with The D Las Vegas sportsbook. Everyone knew it, including majority owner Derek Stevens.
The resort, located in Downtown Las Vegas, underwent a $22-million renovation in 2012 when brothers Derek and Greg purchased the property and changed the name from Fitzgeralds’.
Most parts of the property got a facelift except, apparently, The D sportsbook, which at the time was nothing more than a glorified dumpy kiosk in the middle of the casino on the second floor.
That all changed in June 2019 at The D when management upgraded the sportsbook and Stevens launched a new sports betting operation called Circa Sports.
The updated sportsbook now features a social setting, TV screens, bar-top table games, self-service kiosks, and Las Vegas betting.

The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel is located in the middle of all the fun and excitement of the Fremont Street Experience at 301 Fremont Street in Downtown Vegas.
The D sportsbook hours are consistent, open for 15 hours from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day of the week.
Players must be 21 years of age or older to wager anywhere in Nevada, including on The D entertainment esports or any other gaming platform in Las Vegas.
At The D, the new sportsbook is built around the second-floor Vue Bar — a fan favorite. Visitors can test their luck on The D sports lines and make a bet on any of the major sporting events at one of the betting windows.
All the chairs and tables in the venue face the bar, with the games shown over top of the bar on several flat screens and The D sportsbook odds displayed near the betting stations.
Don’t expect the plush seating like the major venues on the Strip. It may not be one of the best sportsbooks in Las Vegas, but it’s a lot better than the previous venue.

The renovation of The D sports betting also coincided with the launch of Stevens’ new betting platform. All of The D online sports bettings are now done on the new app called Circa, which is powered by Stadium Technology. This platform is a competitor to CG Technology, which is used by a few sportsbooks on the Strip.
Sports wagering “is a business we’ve wanted to get into for quite a while,” said Stevens, who’s also in the middle of building the first ground-up resort downtown since 1980.
Circa Resort and Casino will be ready by December 2020, according to Stevens. Once complete, it will be the tallest tower north of the Strip and home to a new state-of-the-art sportsbook where the height of the main video screen will be more than three stories tall.
Stevens celebrated the launch of his new sports betting app with the introduction of the Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest. The season-long competition will offer $1.5 million in prizes, including a $1-million payout for the champion.
The only problem with The D Las Vegas sportsbook online is the fact that bettors can only wager while in the state of Nevada.
That’s why a much better bet is a top-ranked online app like Bovada. There isn’t an app or site around that offers more betting options than this trusted powerhouse.
This is where the party happens.
The D Las Vegas sportsbook at the Vue Bar offers odds and betting options on professional and college sporting events, with the common bets like the money line, point spread and over/under totals on everything from a regular game in the Major League Baseball season to the March Madness men’s college basketball tournament.
The D’s owner likes to bets on sports as well, especially the riskier plays. So you can bet there are parlays and teasers available at this new venue. Futures betting is offered on all the major sports.
Here are some of the bets you can expect to find at the land-based sportsbook at The D:

But the most betting options are found on The D sportsbook online through its Circa app.
The new platform keeps up with the competition with dozens of bets on all the major sporting events. However, you must register with proper identification at one of Stevens’ two resorts that carry the platform — Golden Gate and The D.
With the new app and completion of the state-of-the-art sportsbook, Circa is sure to give the world’s largest sportsbook in the Westgate SuperBook a run for its money.
The D is located at the eastern end of the Fremont Street Experience. It has a casino, several restaurants, a business center, and a pool. It is the tallest building in downtown Las Vegas and the second-tallest inside the city limits since the Strip is actually located in Paradise, Nevada.
Las Vegas may have the most parking garages in the world. Many hotels, shopping centers and attractions on the Strip offer giant self-parking garages. In downtown Las Vegas, you will find plenty of places to park — like the 11-floor Fremont Street Experience garage right next to the D.
Visitors arriving at McCarran International Airport will find many forms of public transportation. The bus service is the slowest option compared to taxis, rideshare programs, and limousine services. The cost varies with each service.
The D may not have any famous fountain show or a fancy Ferris wheel, but it does have one of the finest restaurants in all of Las Vegas. Andiamo Italian Steakhouse receives one of the highest rankings on TripAdvisor, beating out most of the major high-priced venues on the Strip. Here are some other restaurants and eateries at The D:

The D says: the more points you earn, the more you play. But this is also true at other casinos in Las Vegas casinos like Harrah’s and Flamingo.
Everything seems to be cheaper and a little louder in Downtown Vegas, including the room rates. It’s no exception at The D, which opened in 1980 as the Sundance. Today, the hotel has 34 floors and 638 rooms and suites. The recently remodeled hotel at The D is one of the best deals in Las Vegas:
