The online sports betting industry in the state of Iowa is growing once again, and it’s a pretty impressive name entering the market. Circa Sports is now live in the Hawkeye State, and bettors are eligible to sign up for a new sports betting account.
In order to gain entry into the state of Iowa, Circa Sports partnered with Wild Rose Casinos & Resort and will be using its online sports betting skin. Iowa has given its casinos another online skin, and that has attracted more of the top sports betting companies.
Even though Iowa is not one of the biggest sports betting markets in the United States, it has a proven track record of success. Circa Sports is most known for offering retail sportsbooks in Las Vegas, but the online platform has started to gain attention as well.
Circa Sports Has Unique Features
In Las Vegas, Circa Sports is known for having the “largest sports betting experience in the world.” Circa Sports won’t be able to boast the same claim with its online sportsbook in Iowa, but there are some unique features that could set it apart.
The mobile app is now available for download on both Android and iOS devices, and payments can be made through a variety of different options. Customers can access the online sportsbook from anywhere in the state as long as location services are on and a location has been verified.
Circa Sports has made some bold claims upon entering Iowa, including having the highest betting limits and the lowest hold percentages. If customers have questions or problems when creating an account, Circa Sports also features a highly responsive customer service department.
More Expansion For Circa?
Circa Sports currently has five retail locations in the state of Nevada and has become a big name in that part of the country. This is just the second time that Circa Sports has stepped outside of that state, and it’s unclear if more expansion is coming.
Colorado was the first state outside of Nevada to have a Circa Sports sportsbook available to sports bettors. Targeting the Midwest was a clear goal of the company, and there are other states in this part of the country that have a booming sports betting industry.
Iowa Sees August Boost
There were some very rough sports betting months for the state of Iowa over the summer, but things started to head in the right direction again in August. The total sports betting handle in August was just over $108 million, and that was an increase of nearly 22% from a very low July.
Mobile betting was once again the most popular way to bet on sports in the state, and that has been a trend since the industry launched. The August mobile sports betting handle was $96.1 million, and Circa Sports should help boost that number going forward.
The September sports betting numbers for Iowa are not yet out, but another jump is expected with the launch of regular-season NFL games.
