What is the Circa Sports Iowa promo?

Unlike almost all of its competition in the state, Circa Sportsbook Iowa does not offer any Iowa betting promotions. Instead of focusing on promotional offers, Circa Sports takes pride in focusing on the sharpest lines and highest limits in the industry today, in all the states it operates in. Because of that, no promotional offers of any kind are found at Circa Sports, and to our knowledge, there are no plans for that to change.

Founded in 2019 right off Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas, NV, Circa Resort and Casino sprang up in the desert and has become iconic in just four short years. Known for their Circa Stadium Swim, an outdoor sportsbook surrounded by pools, hot tubs, blackjack tables, and cabanas, they just so happen to also be a top-notch sportsbook.

In July of 2020, Colorado became the first state outside of Nevada for Circa Sportsbook to launch, partnering with Century Casinos, Inc. to go live with their online sportsbook. Just over a year later, in October 2021, Circa brought its talents to the Hawkeye State, partnering with Wild Rose Casinos & Resort to launch an online sportsbook in Iowa.

With a relatively small footprint nationally, let’s take a closer look at all things Circa Sportsbook Iowa and show you how to set up an account today.

Best features of Circa Sports Iowa

Despite many Iowa sports bettors likely being new to Circa Sportsbook, the Nevada-based operator has plenty of quality features to look out for. Let’s look at some of the best features of Circa Sports Iowa.

  • Competitive lines: In the sportsbook capital of the country, Las Vegas, NV, Circa Sports is widely known for having the sharpest lines in town for every major sport. By sharpest, of course, we mean the lines that when a game settles, are the most accurate the most often.
  • Big limits: Most online sportsbooks tend to start limiting bettors who do well, both by bet size and the types of bets they can place. Not Circa, as they take pride in not limiting their customers, no matter how successful they are, and taking some of the biggest bets in the industry.
  • Contests: Whether it is their Circa Sports NFL Survivor Contest or their Circa Sports Milion contest, Circa Sports offers season-long contests for their customers for the chance to compete for millions of dollars.

Circa Sports betting app in IA

With the introduction of online sports betting outside of Nevada, perhaps no aspect of it has taken off more than mobile betting apps. With an estimated 1 in 5 Americans having placed a bet on sports in the past 12 months (Pew Research Center, September 2022), mobile betting has taken center stage in terms of how players place their wages.

While it may lack the bells and whistles of some of its competitors, the Circa Sports betting app in IA is solid and gets the job done. With a very simple design, it lacks the features seen elsewhere in the industry such as stats, same-game parlays, and social hubs. It does, however, have all the same competitive odds and plethora of bet types that the desktop site offers, which in the end is all that matters for most bettors.

Its simplicity also makes it extremely easy to navigate, with the menus and different markets laid out in a clean and concise manner. While it may lack the focus on same-game parlays, it does allow for custom parlays and teasers. Most importantly, the Circa Sports betting app in IA is available for both Android and iOS users.

How to download the Circa Sports app on iOS

If you are one of the thousands of iPhone users in the Hawkeye State, downloading the Circa Sports IA app on iOS is simple. Here’s how to get it:

  2. Download the app: Once you’ve located the app, click the “Install” button and enter your credentials as required.
  3. Sign in or register: If you already have an account, sign in, if not, register for one directly from the app.

Top sports leagues you can bet on using Circa Sports

As mentioned above, Circa Sports has become king when it comes to betting into sharp lines for the top sports leagues in the country. Here are the top three sports leagues to bet on using Circa Sports.

  • National Football League (NFL): With their multiple contests centered around the NFL, combined with their super sharp weekly spreads, the NFL is king at Circa Sports. They also offer the highest limits in the industry when it comes to taking bets.
  • College football: Sticking with their theme of sharp football lines, NCAA football is Circa Sports' second sharpest market. Often posting lines earlier than any of its competitors, college football betting at Circa Sports is as good as it gets for Iowa bettors.
  • National Basketball Association (NBA): While it’s not quite as popular as NFL or college football betting, the NBA betting menu at Circa Sports is also quite impressive. With lines posted early on every NBA regular season and playoff game, Circa Sports is worth a stop for NBA bettors in Iowa.

Can you bet on Iowa college sports with Circa Sports?

Unlike many states, Iowa’s sports betting legislation has fully embraced the idea of betting on Iowa college sports. Yes, that means that fan favorites such as the Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones are available for betting in both college football and basketball. Specifically, Circa Sports is known for its college football lines, which aren’t just sharp out of the gates but posted earlier than most other sportsbooks.

The one limit that has been put in place is the ability to bet on college sports player props. This does follow the path that other states have taken, as they try to limit the risk involved in college athletes illegally getting involved in the action.

Circa Sports IA banking options

In terms of their competition among sportsbooks in Iowa, Circa Sports IA is fairly limited in terms of banking options. Customers must sign up for a Play+ account first, and they then have a few different options in terms of payment methods available. Here are a few of the most popular options.

  • PayPal: The popular payment processing site, PayPal, is available for bettors to load their Play+ account.
  • Debit/credit cards: Mastercard and Visa are the two companies currently available for Circa Sports banking options.
  • Bank transfer: Like many other sportsbooks in IA, customers can connect their bank accounts directly to their Play+ account to transfer money on and off the Circa Sports site.

Customer support of Circa Sports Sportsbook Iowa

If there was any area in which Circa Sports Sportsbook Iowa does fall short, it’s their customer service department. Unlike many in the space, Circa Sports Sportsbook does not offer live chat or phone support. Instead, it relies on email to get in touch with the team. They also have a fairly robust FAQ page for all basic questions that are commonly asked.

If you are a sports bettor who is looking for a ton of different features and promotions, Circa Sports Iowa might not be for you. If, however, you are just looking to place bets into fair and competitive lines, it’s hard to beat the offerings from Circa Sports Iowa.
