Caesars Sportsbook Review

One of the biggest gaming companies in the world, Caesars has a rich history originating in 1937 where it was known as Harrah’s Inc. It owns 50 casinos across the US and in a few other countries around the world, and is now a key player in the New Jersey market. Not only has it established its own land-based sportsbooks at Harrah’s and Bally’s but 888sport utilises Caesar’s Atlantic City license. It was the second sportsbook in New Jersey along with William Hill to have both a retail and online product available for their customers, though now more are establishing their own physical presence.

Scientific Games partnered with Caesars in the summer and is powering both their retail and online platforms in New Jersey, and will also power their retail presence in Mississippi.

Strengths and Other Features

  • Mobile Capabilities

    Caesars managed to launch their mobile platforms on the 6th of September – just hours before the NFL season began. It’s available for both iOS and Android and has a desktop platform as well. The integration with the casino makes it easy for users to go through an entire gaming experience. Interestingly, Caesars opted to create a mobile platform before they established a presence in their flagship base at Caesars AC.

  • Interface & Integration

    The interface is aesthetic and clean and straightforward to use, with the tabs easy to navigate and get to your desired sport. Certainly the most convenient part of the interface and the platform in general is that you can quickly go from casino to sportsbook and vice versa with a shared wallet. There are featured events shown, which are seen on the right hand side in the desktop platform – but this can actually be frustrating when the market is live and you are unable to bet as there is no in-play wagering. On the whole however, this is an intuitive, and easy

  • Total Rewards

    The Total Rewards system on Caesars that was used for casino players is now available for sports wagering as well, which essentially allows you to gain perks at over 40 of Caesars affiliated casinos. Whilst not for everyone, this is certainly going to appeal to some users and is an edge for Caesars.

  • Sports Offered

    The sports offered by Caesars thus far doesn’t really stack up with the rest of the New Jersey playing field – couple that with the fact that there isn’t a great quantity of markets either and it is a bit disappointing overall. However Caesars is indicating that they’ll expand their offerings in the future, which can be expected with a new and growing industry.

  • Cash Out

    A disappointing element of Caesars and one that has it behind the 8-ball in New Jersey is the lack of a live ticket system or any in-play wagering. In-play trading is by now a fairly standard feature of most sportsbooks and the ability to cash out of bets early really gives punters a lot of flexibility. At this stage Caesars has neither and thus is definitely something to consider when using their platform.

  • Bonuses

    Whilst it is certainly a strength that wagers contribute towards users gathering Total Rewards points at Caesars, the lack of promotions directly linked to registering and depositing for sportsbooks is a bit disappointing in comparison with the rest of the market. There are many casino bonuses but the $300 deposit match isn’t allowed to be used on sports wagers. This could certainly be a decisive factor for many users tossing up between Caesars or those with extremely generous bonuses.

  • Support

    The support Caesars provides is of a high standard, with an easy to access and comprehend FAQ, as well as live chat support – though that is only available on desktop. They also provide a phone line to contact and emails to several different departments that allow the user to provide feedback, inquiries and even suggestions.

  • The Verdict

    There are certainly strengths to Caesars – on brand power alone there is certainly an element of trust that a company with their experience and Scientific Games together will make for an outstanding product. The app design and usability reflects this. The Total Rewards system is a great loyalty program and the fact it’s integrated with the casino makes it easy for the user to feel valued. There’s also a decent amount of deposit and withdrawal options, which is always beneficial for users.

    While the lack of sportsbook bonuses is an issue, the bigger problem is currently the absence of in-play wagers and a live ticket system. It’s just borderline a necessity for the market to have it, and it’s an advantage for the rest of the New Jersey field. Another drawback is the sports currently offered and the quantity of markets, the lack of prop bets and some of the missing sports.

    It’s still early days, and the entire New Jersey market will grow and develop. Caesars has a good foundation and a strong backing behind it so you can expect it to iron out it’s issues.
