Bonuses

$5,000 Risk-free Bet up to $5,000 Terms and conditions apply

Caesars sportsbook offers the most significant risk-free bet bonus in the country. Sign up for a Caesars online sports betting account today, and you will receive a risk-free bet worth up to $5,000. That supersedes the $2,000 risk-free bet available at PointsBet and the $1,000 risk-free bet offers at FanDuel and BetMGM.

This sports betting bonus is pretty straightforward compared to the industry standard but still comes with many terms and conditions worth knowing before you jump in. You get a free bet in the equal value of your first wager up to $5,000 if you lose your first bet. The first bet must be made within seven business days of creating your account to qualify.

Free bets will be added to a participant’s Caesars account within three business days after their qualifying wager is graded as a loss by Caesars. You must use your free bet within seven calendar days from it being awarded, or it will expire. You do not get the full value of a free bet token back if your wager with it wins.

You cannot divide the risk-free bet into multiple bets. If you simultaneously place more than one wager in your first bet slip, the first wager recorded by Caesars in your wagering history will be considered the qualifying wager. Free bets are only applicable to sports that have minimum odds greater than -200.

Wagers settled before normal market settlement via the Cash Out feature are not eligible for free bets (don’t cash out early). The following wager placed will not become the qualifying wager. If the eligible free bet event is canceled, the free bet is lost and not returned.

If you had a William Hill account and now had to jump over to Caesars, you’re not eligible for the welcome bonus.

Caesars also offers a wide array of bonuses to keep existing customers happy. The main gripe here is that their daily promos have low maximum betting limits, decreasing their value and potential profitability for bettors. Major sportsbooks like Caesars need to stop limiting regular bettors who want to take advantage of promos like this if they want to improve customer retention and keep people from betting at other books.

Free Bets
Caesars Sportsbook awards customers free bets through several different promotions. One example is “Football Freebie,” whereby you can wager $50 on a Champions League soccer game and get a $25 free bet on Thursday Night Football as a reward. Another enjoyable sports betting promo is “The Longest Yards,” which sees customers earn a free bet equal to the longest TD the team they bet on scores. The “Friday Double” offer earns you a free bet equal to 100% of your stake if you place a successful point spread bet on a college football game. There are lots of additional free bet sportsbook bonus offers up for grabs throughout the year, too, along with risk-free bets and short-term promos.

Profit Boosts and Odds Boosts
Caesars offers profit boosts to increase your net winnings on specific bets. They can apply to straight bets or parlays. If your selection qualifies for a boost, you will be informed after adding it to the bet slip. You can also find a list of available profit boosts on the “Promotions” page at Caesars Sportsbook. Caesars also provides increased odds on many different betting markets each day, which is a similar offer.

Sportsbook Contests
Sports bettors can take part in a variety of fun contests at Caesars. For example, it is giving away trips to Super Bowl LVI in a high-profile prize draw.

Caesars Rewards Loyalty Program
Loyalty programs at sportsbooks still have a ways to go before they’re considered a major perk or offer enough incentive to keep bettors from odds shopping. But for the time being, Caesars does offer one of the most appealing loyalty programs in the industry thanks to them being the largest retail sportsbook in America. In October 2021, Caesars Rewards was awarded the “Customer Loyalty Program of the Year” at the Global Gaming Awards. It was also voted No. 1 for the fourth consecutive year in the 2021 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for “Best Players Club.” Caesars Rewards is the largest loyalty program in the gaming industry with over 60 million members.

Their program revolves around Tier Credits (TCs) and Reward Credits (RCs). Customers earn TCs and RCs simultaneously when they bet on sports or play, dine, shop, and stay at one of Caesars’ 50 destinations. Every bet wagered through the Caesars Sportsbook app, win or lose, collects Caesars Rewards credits, which is better than some books that only offer points on winning bets. Six levels in the VIP program unlock additional perks such as discounted hotel stays at lower levels up to free hotel stays and airfare credits to fly to Caesars destinations like Las Vegas and Dubai. Their aggressive plans to open physical locations at stadiums and venues make their rewards plan one of the best in the business.

The downside to their loyalty program, like all books, is that major sportsbooks still insist on limiting bettors on a heater. This makes it more challenging to accrue rewards points or be highly profitable at all, for that matter, without switching to other books to place bets from time to time.

Summary

Caesars Sportsbook History
Caesars Palace was founded in 1966 and is one of the most iconic hotels in Las Vegas. It also offers the largest physical sportsbook in Las Vegas. Caesars Entertainment first launched an online sportsbook in Nevada in 2017 using technology from Miomni. It expanded into New Jersey and Pennsylvania after PASPA was overturned in 2018, using a revamped platform, but it struggled to compete with market leaders like FanDuel, DraftKings, and William Hill. Eldorado Resorts then purchased Caesars for $17.3 billion in 2020, creating the most prominent casino and entertainment company in the United States, and the group adopted the Caesars name.

Eldorado had already teamed up with William Hill for a market access deal. By that point, William Hill was the number one sportsbook operator in Nevada, and it had launched in more states than any other online sports betting site. Caesars Entertainment bought William Hill for £2.9 billion ($4 billion) in 2021, and it rebranded William Hill Sportsbook as Caesars Sportsbook. It also added new features to the app and improved the bonuses in a bid to turn Caesars Sportsbook into the most popular online sportsbook in the country. Nevada, Washington D.C., and Illinois have different products, bonuses, and promos still branded with William Hill.

Caesars is proving to be one of the most aggressively expanding brands in sports betting, pushing industry standards. Aside from the prominent “Caesars” brand, Caesars Entertainment also manages popular Las Vegas brands such as Harrah’s, Tropicana, Flamingo, Bally’s, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Rio, Circus Circus (Reno), Lady Luck, and more.

In 2020, Caesars was named to CDP’s A-List for Climate Change and Water Security, joining the ranks of just 277 companies (Climate) and 106 companies (Water) out of more than 9,000 disclosing companies. CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs the global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states and regions to manage their environmental impacts.

In July 2021, Caesars Entertainment acquired the naming rights to the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, and it is now known as Caesars Superdome. Caesars Sportsbook made history in September 2021 when the NHL’s Washington Capitals became the first major American sports team to feature a gambling logo on their in-game jerseys. Capital One Arena was also the first major sports team venue to open an 18,000 square foot sportsbook inside (originally William Hill, now Caesars).

In November 2021, Caesars announced a sponsorship deal with the NFL’s first quarterbacking family, the Mannings – Archie, Peyton, Eli, and Cooper.

In Caesars Entertainment’s (NASDAQ: CZR) 2021 Q3 earnings report released in November, the company posted revenues of $2.69 billion for the quarter ending September 2021. This compares to revenues of $1.38 billion a year ago.

In What States is Caesars Sportsbook Available?
Caesars Sportsbook is now available in Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Louisiana. It was also one of nine sportsbooks recommended by the New York State Gaming Commission for a Mobile Sports Wagering License.

Customer Service  
Caesars Sportsbook provides sports betting customers with 24/7 customer service. You can speak to representatives using the live chat option or send an email via the site if your request is not particularly pressing. Contact via phone at 855-474-0606. There is also a detailed FAQ section on the site.

Sports Betting Experience  
The sports betting experience is reasonably impressive at Caesars Sportsbook. The U.K. version of the William Hill site is hectic and cluttered, but the team went for a far more minimalist and user-friendly approach for the U.S. market. The new owners have maintained the design, simply adding a Caesars skin onto the old William Hill app and website, so it remains easy to browse and user-friendly. It is not as stylish as DraftKings, and it lacks the stats and the broad selection of wagering options you will find at BetMGM, but it is a clean, efficient site that can be navigated quickly and easily.

Caesars Sportsbook displays the most popular sports covered in a menu to the right of the homepage. It varies according to which sports are in season, but you will generally find football, basketball, baseball, and hockey at the top, followed by soccer, UFC/MMA, golf, tennis, and boxing. It also offers odds on auto racing, cricket, darts, handball, rugby league, rugby union, snooker, and table tennis. That is a smaller selection than several rival online sportsbooks, with volleyball, lacrosse, and Aussie Rules among the notable absences, but all the prominent sports leagues are covered in detail. It covers a pretty robust selection of leagues and tournaments worldwide, but it has fewer betting options than rivals like BetMGM, PointsBet, and FanDuel.

Live Betting
Sports bettors can bet in-play on lots of different sporting events each day. Just click on the “Live” option at the top left of the online sports betting site or the top of the app menu to see a list of current games. We found basketball in Poland, table tennis and hockey in Russia, soccer in Finland, tennis in Mexico, and cricket in India available when we were writing up this sportsbook review to give you an idea of the depth available. It uses official NFL data feeds to underpin its live football betting, and the range of betting options is substantial on football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer.

Caesars Odds
The odds at Caesars Sportsbook are average. It is not a reduced juice sportsbook, but it offers standard juice -110 lines on sides and totals for football and basketball. Lots of sportsbooks take an extra point on their lines, so Caesars is above average there. Its odds on moneylines, props, and futures typically land somewhere in the middle when compared with those provided by rivals.

Mobile Betting Review
Caesars Sportsbook offers one of the best sports betting apps in the United States. It was completely revamped after being acquired by William Hill in mid-2021, which brought significant upgrades. After receiving thousands of reviews, it has already achieved an average rating of 4.5 on Google Play and 4.6 on the Apple App Store. We enjoyed using the app when we tested it out. You should be able to navigate to games quickly and place your bets very efficiently. It does not offer as many features as some competitors’ sports betting apps, but it is very clean and user-friendly, just like the online sports betting site.

Other Options
You can visit the Caesars online casino in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or West Virginia. It offers virtual table games, live dealer tables, and slots. The range of games is very narrow compared to rivals like Unibet, but the games are all high-quality titles produced by world-class studios like NetEnt. It would be nice to see greater variety in the future, as Caesars is a casino giant, but the casino section is easy to browse, and it comes with some great bonuses.

Reputation
Caesars Sportsbook has an excellent reputation among sports bettors. William Hill has been operating since 1934, and it built up a robust and loyal customer base in the United States. Those bettors have been treated well since migrating to Caesars Sportsbook, as they were given lucrative bonuses, they entered the Caesars Rewards loyalty program, and they benefited from additional sportsbook features. Caesars Entertainment is a large, liquid, transparent, publicly traded company that complies with all regulations in each state in which it offers legal sports betting. It has an excellent security record.

Caesars Sportsbook offers a broader range of deposit and withdrawal methods than most of its competitors. You can use a credit card or debit card from Visa, MasterCard or Discover, but American Express is unavailable. If you would like to send a bank transfer, you can do so via PayWithMyBank, or send an e-check through VIP Preferred. Sports bettors that prefer to use an e-wallet can choose either PayPal or Skrill.

If you would prefer to pay in cash, you can use PayNearMe at your local store, or head to the casino cage at a Caesars property or licensing partner property in your state. Another option is to sign up for a Caesars Sportsbook Play+ branded prepaid card. That allows you to make instant deposits and withdrawals. The minimum deposit is $10, and the maximum will depend upon the method selected. All deposits are free of charge.

Caesars has slightly limited withdrawal options but seems to offer a more streamlined process than some competitors. Like most books, this is one of the most common sources of customer complaints, but people aren’t likely to take the time to write a positive review about quick withdraws.

Payout speeds depend on your chosen method. PayPal is typically within 12-24 hours but can take up to three business days with bank processing included. Only use PayPal to withdraw if you have already made a deposit via PayPal, or you’ll get delayed with ID verification processes. Online bank transfers range from 3-5 business days. ACH e-Check takes about five business days. Neteller will take up to 3 business days. Caesars Sportsbook Play+ card and cash at the casino cage (with photo ID) are instant. You can withdraw Play+ cards from any ATM that accepts Discover, use the card at retailers, or transfer funds to your bank account. You will have to verify your payment method when processing a withdrawal request. There’s a $10 minimum on all withdrawal methods except for PayPal.
