Golden Gate owner Derek Stevens says his book will offer unique props such as betting on a team that will NOT win this year’s World Series.

“We’re coming out with what we call a ‘no bet,” Stevens explained while unveiling the 1,297-square-foot Golden Gate venue. “Matthew Metcalf, Mike Palm and myself are excited about what we’re creating on a no bet. We’re going to offer some of the best odds if you want to bet the Cubs, the Bears or the Yankees or whatever, what people are accustomed to seeing. But we’re also going to be offering ‘no betting,’ and we think that’s going to explode in popularity.”

The new independent sports book features 18 49-inch television screens.

Stevens is also guaranteeing a $1 million payout to the winner of the inaugural Circa Sports Million Pro Football Contest.  The contest can be downloaded on both the Apple and Android platforms, but one must register in person at the sportsbook per Nevada regulations.

Registration for the NFL handicapping contest will run from June 1 to Sept. 7 at the Golden Gate. The entry fee is $1,000, with players selecting five weekly NFL sides against the spread throughout the 2019 regular season.

Regardless of the number of entries, the contest will feature a guaranteed prize pool of $1.5 million, with $1 million to the winner and the top 10 places paid.

As far as sports betting expanding nationwide following a landmark decision by the US Supreme Court to overturn, The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, Stevens sees this as a good thing for his new sportsbook. 

“It’s good for customers,” he said. “When you bring someone new into it, we’ve always seen in Nevada it creates some other attractions, some other reasons to come and visit Vegas. So we’re going to be pretty creative. We’re going to offer some options that aren’t necessarily out there currently. We’re going to have a very broad menu and I think certain customers are going to really enjoy Circa Sports.”
