SlamBall made its return to the sports world after a seven-year hiatus.
Now the fast-paced, gravity-defining sport is entering the sports-betting world.
On Thursday, Circa Sports announced it will be a founding partner in SlamBall and will provide legal gambling lines for all remaining sessions through the playoffs on August 15 and 17.
“We have always believed that SlamBall was a tailor-made property for sports gambling, and Circa Sports coming on at this early juncture further validates and expedites this critical part of our business plan,” said Mason Gordon, SlamBall co-creator and CEO. “Our expansive partnership with Derek Stevens and the team will be amplified this upcoming weekend when live gambling on SlamBall will take place for the first time.”
Circa Sports is known as one of the premier retail sportsbooks in Las Vegas and is a leader in the city for sports futures. Circa Resort & Casino is home to the world's largest sportsbook. Circa operates mobile wagering in Colorado and Iowa.
“We are excited to be one of the founding partners of SlamBall,” said Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa Resort & Casino. “We’re happy to have them included in the continuously expanding sports scene in Las Vegas and we look forward to seeing their growth."
Circa will provide moneylines, spreads and totals for all remaining SlamBall games. They join Old Trapper as SlamBall's first two founding partners.
SlamBall has a two-year ESPN partnership with most games airing on ESPN+. Play resumes today in Las Vegas starting at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
