As one of the largest casino operators in the world, Caesars brings an instantly recognizable brand into the online sports betting space. Currently available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Nevada, Caesars Online sportsbook will undoubtedly expand into more states in the coming months and years.
Caesars first took its sportsbook online in Nevada in 2017 with a Miomni-powered online app. Caesars was late getting into the online sports wagering game in NV, relatively speaking, as other casinos’ sportsbooks had been doing so for several years.
However, when a US Supreme Court ruling in May 2018 opened the door to other states to offer sports betting, Caesars was relatively quicker to act.
Powered by Scientific Games, Caesars Sportsbook New Jersey launched in September 2018. Caesars Sportsbook Pennsylvania then arrived in March 2020, followed by Caesars Sportsbook Indiana in May 2020.
The following overview covers Caesars Sportsbooks in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana, which in many respects are identical in each state. (Caesars’ Nevada online sportsbook is slightly different.)
Read on for information about bonuses and promotions, account creation, the types of bets and sports available, banking options and support, and the overall user experience.
|Online Sportsbook||Caesars Sportsbook|
|Free Bet Offer||$10|
|Deposit Bonus||$300 Matched Sports Free Bet|
|Last Updated||January 2021|
Caesars Sportsbook has a couple of welcome bonuses for new sign-ups. One is a $10 no deposit free bet just for signing up for an account. Use the Caesars bonus code BETFREE10 when registering.
Caesars Sportsbook also offers what it calls a $300 Matched Sports Free Bet for new sign-ups. This is an alternative to the standard 100% match deposit bonus at other online sportsbooks.
To claim the $300 welcome bonus, create an account using the bonus code, make a first deposit, then make an initial sports wager. Doing so gets you a free bet worth the equivalent of the amount wagered on that first bet or $300, whichever is less.
There are a few conditions. The minimum deposit is $10. The qualifying wager must have odds of -200 or higher to qualify. If the qualifying bet is a parlay, each of the bets must have individual odds of -200 or higher.
Caesars Sportsbook also offers other promotions on a periodic basis. These often come in the form of free bets, reload bonuses or odds boosts. Some promotions come during certain events like the Super Bowl or March Madness. Keep an eye out and take advantage of these offers when they appear.
Most bonuses and promotions are available in all states where Caesars Sportsbook operates. However, there are occasionally some variations. Click the site’s “Promotions” tab to double-check what offers are available in each particular state.
No matter the state, playing at Caesars enables users to take advantage of the popular Caesars Rewards loyalty program.
Caesars Rewards connects play at all Caesars properties, including casinos and sportsbooks, whether brick and mortar or online.
When placing bets in the online sportsbook, every $10 wagered earns one online Reward Credit. Every 1,000 Reward Credits you collect can be converted into $10 cash.
Sports bets also help members of the program accumulate Tier Credits. Those can be redeemed for other perks including ones associated with entertainment, shopping and dining at Caesars properties.
Creating an online account at one of the Caesars Sportsbooks is a simple process. Start by visiting the appropriate state site and clicking the “join now” button on the upper right. You must then supply the following information:
The user must acknowledge being at least 21 years of age and agree to the terms and conditions, and that’s all there is to it.
You can also access the Caesars Sportsbook on your mobile device using a free downloadable app. There are apps for iOS/Apple and Android devices. To download the app, just visit the Caesars site for the appropriate state and follow the instructions.
The app looks and functions much like the web-based version of the site, including all of the same markets and games on which to bet. The app also allows all of the same banking options and provides the same types of support (discussed below).
Note for Nevada users only: NV requires in-person registration for mobile betting. After downloading the app, you will need to complete the application in person by visiting a Caesars retail sportsbook in the state.
Depending on the state, Caesars Sportsbook might link to other offerings such as an online casino and/or online poker.
In Pennsylvania, the online sportsbook for Caesars is integrated with the casino app, enabling users to switch back and forth with the click of a button.
The sportsbook and casino are similarly linked in New Jersey. There, users can also click through to the WSOP.com online poker site. However, a distinct, standalone client or app needs to be downloaded in order to play online poker on WSOP.com.
Meanwhile, the Caesars Indiana Sportsbook has no online casino or online poker linked to it at present.
Caesars Sportsbook offers the usual variety of wagering options for sports bettors. That said, when compared to other online sportsbooks, it has relatively fewer bets offered per contest. The majority of bettors won’t notice the difference. But those looking for lots of variations on odds and spreads and a greater depth of options will notice Caesars lacking in this area.
Here are the primary bet types featured at Caesars:
A moneyline bet is the classic, straightforward bet on a team or individual to win. The odds show as a positive or negative number, indicating an underdog or favorite, respectively. A positive number represents the return on a winning $100 bet. A negative number represents the amount that must be wagered to receive a $100 return.
For instance, a moneyline bet on the Pirates to win at -120 (as a slight favorite) means for every $120 wagered, a winning bet pays $100. A bet on the Phillies to win at +110 (as a slight underdog) means for every $100 wagered, a winning bet pays $110.
This same system for expressing odds (known as American odds) is used for all other bet types as well.
A spread bet refers to a wager on the point spread of a contest. In this case, the odds are accompanied by a positive or negative point spread. For instance, if the Indianapolis Colts are a four-point underdog, this will be shown as “Indianapolis +4.”
Betting on this, rather than the moneyline, would mean the Colts can either win, or lose by fewer than 4 points for the bet to be a winner. If they lose by exactly 4, the bet would be a push (tie).
A bet on the Pittsburgh Steelers as three-and-a-half point favorites is represented as “Pittsburgh -3.5.” In that case, the Steelers would need to win by 4 points or more for the bet to by a winner. Here, the half-point applied to the spread means a tie is impossible, and the Steelers winning by 3 would make for a losing bet.
A totals bet, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the total number of points scored by both sides in a given contest. Let’s say the Pacers are playing the Nuggets, and the over/under line is 212.5. For an “over” bet to win, the teams’ combined total would need to be 213 points or more.
Individual team totals, as well as totals for a half, quarter or period are also possible, but considered props (see below). These won’t necessarily be available for every sport or match.
A parlay bet combines multiple bets into one. Every “leg” or individual bet must win in order for the entire parlay bet to win. A bettor could combine a moneyline bet on the New Jersey Devils to win, a totals bet on the Knicks-Sixers game and a spread bet on the Phillies to win by 1.5 runs or more as a single parlay bet.
Parlay bets generally have long odds and big payouts, making them attractive though generally riskier. You can reduce the risk by placing various kinds of round-robin or combo bets.
For instance, if you have three picks on your bet slip, Caesars Sportsbook will offer you a choice between a single three-leg parlay, or three separate two-leg parlays. The latter won’t pay as well, but you’ll still get something even if only two of your three picks are good.
A prop bet, aka a proposition bet, is a wager on an outcome not directly tied to the game’s final result, or only to part of the result. You might be betting on an individual player, only one of the two teams, or only one period, quarter or half of the match.
For example, a bettor could wager on Joel Embiid to score more (or fewer) than 25.5 points in a game (a player prop). Or a bettor could bet on the Eagles to rush for more than 126.5 yards in a game (a team prop).
Making a futures bet means betting on an event or outcome that will not be determined until a future date. For example, a bettor might place a preseason wager on which NFL team will win the Super Bowl.
In game betting or “live” betting involves betting on a game while it is in progress, such as on the result of the next play. Such in game bets can also include bets on the moneyline, the spread, totals and so forth.
These will be adjusted on the fly after a contest has begun, but won’t always be available. For instance, a penalty or scoring play will result in the sportsbook temporarily shutting down in play betting until the referees’ decisions are finalized, at which point betting will resume.
By the same token that Caesars takes a conservative approach with regard to betting types and market depth, its online sportsbook also mainly sticks to the most popular sports. If you’re looking to bet on a more obscure sport or smaller league, you may have to look elsewhere.
Bettors can wager on the following sports at Caesars, including both professional and collegiate (where applicable):
These are the sports available for both Caesars Pennsylvania and Caesars Indiana. Caesars New Jersey also has rugby league, table tennis, tennis and the ability to bet on virtual sports.
Both the web-based browser version and the app feature the same black, white and gold color scheme. Both feature a clean, easy-to-navigate design and are mostly intuitive in their construction, making it easy to find the games and bets.
The site uses the familiar betting slip to keep track of wagers, with the user able to edit wagering amounts and create parlays. Once all is ready, you can confirm the bet(s). Unlike some other online sportsbooks, Caesars doesn’t provide bettors with any stats or information beyond the betting lines themselves.
As noted above, Caesars Sportsbook is mostly about the most popular sports and betting types, shunning anything “niche” or out-of-the-ordinary. Pregame bets often include only the main betting types and a handful of player props, whereas the biggest sportsbooks might offer 100 different lines or more.
When it comes to in game betting, Caesars Sportsbook doesn’t offer much in the way of live statistics, unlike some of its competitors. Such updated information can be helpful when making live wagers, so its absence might diminish your experience somewhat, depending on the sort of bettor you are.
There are several methods available for funding a Caesars Sportsbook account. Whether using a web-based browser or the app, click “My Account” and then “Deposit,” and several options will appear
Deposit options include:
There is a $10 minimum for deposits.
Players can self-impose deposit limits as well by accessing the responsible gambling section of the site. They can also place limits on the amount deposited and/or wagered on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Users can also limit their session time, self-impose a “cooling off” period and self-exclude.
As is usually the case, there are fewer options to withdraw from Caesars Sportsbook than to deposit. Users have the following choices:
Withdrawing via PayPal only works if you deposited using that method. Similarly, you will naturally need to have a Caesars Online Play+ card in order to withdraw funds that way.
The minimum amount you can withdraw is $10. Caesars charges no withdrawal fees, regardless of the method.
Caesars has a live chat feature. On both the app and web-browser versions, live chat is accessible by clicking the “Support” icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Live chat is available from 8 a.m. to midnight ET each day.
Clicking live chat also opens a searchable FAQ section on the app. On the web-based version, clicking “Support” brings up the FAQ.
Phone support is available by calling the toll-free number listed on the site. Support answers calls from noon to 8 p.m. ET each day. Email support is available as well, with different email addresses for each state’s site.
Caesars Online Sportsbook is currently up and running in Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Indiana. It should be coming soon to Michigan and perhaps other states.
Yes, they can. But users do need to be physically located within the state to make any real-money sports bets. For instance, for Caesars Sportsbook Indiana, the user needs to be in Indiana in order to place any wagers.
Anyone placing a real-money bet at Caesars Sportsbook must be at least 21 years of age.
Caesars Interactive Entertainment owns Caesars Online Sportsbook. For states where the online sportsbook is live, it operates off of licenses held by Caesars-owned land-based casinos.
In Nevada, the retail partner is Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. In New Jersey, the retail partner is Harrah’s Atlantic City. In Pennsylvania, the retail partner is Harrah’s Philadelphia. And in Indiana, the retail partner is the Horseshoe Hammond Casino.
