Downtown Las Vegas’ Circa resort has already cemented its status as a destination for sports fans, thanks in large part to its massive Stadium Swim setup, which delivers the Vegas Golden Knights and Las Vegas Raiders, among others, on a 40-foot, 14 million pixel screen.
Now, the Derek Stevens-owned property is looking to dominate the lesser-known, but still lucrative, sports categories, starting with the Universal Domino League. The resort has announced it will play host to the July 17 “Summer Kickoff Domino Tournament” in which competitors will vie for more than $100,000 in cash and prizes, as well as the coveted UDL Championship Belt.
“The largest, sanctioned domino tournament in history,” according to Universal Domino League Founder Harold Moret, is expected to draw hundreds of players, all of them competing in best-of-three games ahead of a best-of-seven championship match that will be streamed on the UDL Network. The payout will be divided among the top 32 players – the player in 32nd place gets $500 while the 1st place player gets $30,000, the aforementioned belt, and the title of “Universal Domino League Champion.”
Players with the stones to master the bones can enter the competition online (for a $200 entry fee), and spectators will get free admission to the tournament.
