Caesars Sportsbook Review & App Experience

EDITOR'S OPINION

Caesars completed the purchase of William Hill in August of 2021, and merged the two brands in what is now a sports betting app fit for the emperor himself. The new William Hill styled Caesars Sportsbook blends the two gambling superstars in a way that will help bring the Caesars online brand to the stature that we have all come to know and love about their retail casino empire.

Caesars Sportsbook Hands-on Review

The Caesars Sportsbook can be accessed on practically any device that has an internet connection which includes a browser-based online sportsbook that can be accessed on your PC or Mac and via their mobile app on both iOS and Android-powered devices.

Both the computer and mobile app versions of the Caesars Online Sportsbook allow you to access all the standard features including checking lines, placing bets, making deposits and withdrawals, contacting support and much more.

Back in 2018, Caesars Interactive US LLC entered into the NJ arena, covering both sports and casino. The original Caesars sportsbook was, lets face it, pretty boring. No ingame betting, barely any props and alternative lines were few and far between.

With the 2021 purchase of William Hill, one of the most respected names in the world when it comes to online sports betting, Caesars is showing its dedication to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the US online sports betting market.

The new, and greatly improved, Caesars Sportsbook gives you access to hundreds of bets on almost every matchup, a full slate of daily promotions and a huge selection of inplay betting options. Inplay betting allows you to place bets while the game progresses, with constantly updating lines based on the action on the field.

The lines can be a mixed bag, as Caesars does not always have the best odds on spreads or moneyline, but there are a few gems mixed in to the 20 cent lines. Price shopping is a must to always maximize your profits, and sometimes Caesars will have the best lines, but sometimes it may be worth placing your bet at another online sportsbook. You can always check our odds comparison page to make sure you are getting the best lines everytime.

Is Caesars Sportsbook Legit?

Yes, Caesars Sportsbook is fully legitimate. Caesars is made up of Caesars Interactive US LLC which covers all sportsbook and casino operations. Each state in which they operate must be within the state’s rules and regulations. For example, in the state of New Jersey, Caesars Sportsbook is licensed by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Can You Win Real Money Playing at Caesars Sportsbook?

Yes, you can win real money at Caesars Sportsbook. The betting site offers regulated real money sports betting options with cashouts being processed through familiar banking options such as PayPal, ACH, VISA or pick up cash at the affiliated retail casino.

Caesars Louisiana Prelaunch Offer

Bettors who successfully register a new account in Louisiana using the exclusive promo code GAMEDAY at least one day before Caesars launches in the state will earn a $100 free bet! Louisiana online betting is launching soon, so be sure to get this offer!

Here is how the Caesars Louisiana promo works:

  1. Register your account prior to the first day of online betting going live in Louisiana using the promo code GAMEDAY  to earn a $100 free bet.
  2. Free bet will be credited within two days of betting going live.
  3. Additionally, users who register during this early sign-up period AND make a real money deposit of $50 or more by November 24 will earn a free bet equal to $1 for every point scored by local teams playing on the first weekend after betting launches.

You will also be eligible for Caesars first bet matched promotion, which we will explain more below.

Caesars Sportsbook Signup Bonus

At Caesars Sportsbook, you can receive a great signup bonus of a 100% bet match up to $1001 using our promo code “GAMEDAY“. All you have to do is click the “Get Bonus” button on our website, or enter the promo code if you navigate there on your own.

First Bet Matched up to $1001

Caesars Sportsbook is coming in hot with an offer that would make Bob Barker proud, a matched free bet of $1001. What truly makes this a special offer is that your first bet after registering a new account will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $1,001 no matter the outcome of the game. Other sites will offer a risk-free bet where you only get a free bet if your first bet loses, but Caesars is showing that they are willing to be innovators in the game, matching the first bet, win or lose.

How it works

To take advantage of this offer, you just have to register a new account using the promo code GAMEDAY, make your first real money deposit and place a bet of at least $20 with odds no longer than -200 and that first wager will be matched 100% up to $1001 in the form of a one-time free bet. In order to qualify, the bet does have to settle within 30 days, so most futures bets will not qualify.

For example, if you create a new account using the promo code GAMEDAY, make a $500 deposit and place a wager on the Lakers at -150, within 2 days of that bet being settled, you will receive a free bet in the amount of $500, no matter if the Lakers win or lose. You then have 30 days to use that free bet or it will expire. In other words, either use it or lose it.

Its important to note that the free bet will only pay out the profits, and not the stake amount. So, if you were to place a $500 bet at +200 odds with cash, the potential payout is $1500 ($500 stake + $1000 profit), but a winning wager with a $500 free bet would only net the $1000 profit.

Free NBA Jersey Giveaway

Betting on the NBA comes with even more perks as Caesars Online Sportsbook is now giving you a free NBA jersey of your choice when you bet a cumulative $100 between now and January 19th, 2022. Well, technically you will receive a $150 gift card to NBAstore.com, that you could use on any purchase if your jersey collection is already full.

To claim this special offer, once you are registered, head over to the promotions tab and opt in, then just bet the NBA like you normally would. You do not need to bet $100 in one shot, as it is the cumulative total over the month of December and the first 19 days of January. Just make sure to head over to the promotions tab and opt-in before you place your first NBA bet.

Caesars Sportsbook No-Deposit Bonus

Some US-based online sportsbooks will offer a no-deposit bonus, which is a reward issued to a new customer simply for signing up. Typically the no-deposit bonus is small, around $5-$20 free bets, but free money is free money. Currently, Caesars does not offer a no-deposit bonus, but may add one in the future.

Deposit Bonus

Currently, there is no first-deposit bonus available at Caesars.

My Caesars Sportsbook App Experience

Please note, when searching for the Caesars Sportsbook app, it is called the Caesars Sportsbook App in the App Store. The Caesars Sportsbook and Casino app is a remnant of what used to be but is still active in Pennsylvania as the new William Hill version is not yet available in certain markets.

I enjoy the relative simplicity of the Caesars Sportsbook app. Downloading is easy as you just need to go to the App Store, search, and download. That’s it. If you are an Android user and can’t find the app in the Play Store, you can download it directly from the Caesars website.

Once logged in, the general betting functions are pretty much the same as far as the top tabs and as one scroll down the site. The app features the familiar buttons on the bottom that tab out in greater detail like the bet slip, account, all sports, the home button, and yes, the casino. The app also has a logo on top to switch from sportsbook to casino and vice versa.

Caesars will send promotional emails, but I also recommend checking the app daily. Promotions are prominently displayed on the promotions tab and easy to follow and opt into. Though it appears that Caesars does not provide odds boosts.

When you want to place a bet, the process is pretty easy to follow. Caesars Sportsbook is one of the better books when it comes to updated odds.

When you click on an event to bet, you will get even more options — mostly of the traditional and live betting varieties. Once inside a particular matchup, there is a plethora of betting options that will fill any sports bettors needs to get in on the action. Whether you like betting spreads, props totals, moneylines or alternatives, there is no shortage of options for all the top betting varieties.

Caesars Sportsbook features a fairly reasonable-to-follow interface when it comes to the app. The desktop version is quite simple and easy to utilize. When I place wagers and am crunched for time, I do not want to be concerned with all sorts of pop-ups, extra frills, ads with sound, and so on.

Overall, the user experience is top notch. Easy to find your favorite matchups, place bets and trigger all the additional features of the mobile app. The one gripe that is worth mentioning is that when you navigate away from the app, you will be signed out and lose the spot that you were last at. This means if you go to check prices or do research on a bet, when you head back into the virtual sportsbook, you will need to sign in and find the bet once again.

Should You Bet at Caesars Sportsbook?

If we were talking about the Caesars Sportsbook that had initially launched, we may steer you in a different direction but the acquisition of William Hill is a game changer for the future of Caesars Online Sportsbook. William Hill has been around for over 100 years, and made their way online in the early 2000s throughout Europe, and is among the top online sportsbooks in the world.

In a world of Kambi-powered sportsbook, William Hill pricing gives additional options for price shopping and will occasionally give you better moneyline odds and spreadlines compared to the competition.

One aspect of pricing that William Hill does excel is their prop bets pricing and not in the traditional manner that you may think. Caesars will give the best odds on one side of the bet and terrible odds on the other. This can help with hedging larger bets on the site or if you happen to like the positive side of the bet, get you the rare + odds on a prop.

We would be remiss to not mention the astronomical $5000 risk-free bet for new customers, but the promotions don’t stop after the welcome offer has come and gone. In an effort to recruit new customers in a very competitive market, Caesars has a full list of exciting promotions almost daily to keep you coming back for more.

Caesars has also made it clear that they will not be limiting bet sizes or turning action away. While some sportsbooks may have a reputation for not wanting big or winning bettors to wager on their site, Caesars has an open door policy and welcome the action.

Customer Service

Caesars Sportsbook does not require one to be logged in typically for customer service requests but it helps. Once logged in, you can go to your accounts tab on the app and find support that way.

On desktop, just scroll down to the bottom of the page. In small print, you will see the support link. Just click on it.

Caesars Sportsbook then goes to a small screen that includes searching options for accounts, casino contact, and frequently answered questions. That support button typically is in the lower left-hand corner. This sets up an automated chat that attempts to answer questions.

This includes a way for a representative to answer your request. They can call back, have a live chat, or leave a message often via email.

Times can be varied and the live chat option (is usually from 8 am ET to Midnight ET) does not always resolve an issue but is better than most betting sites.

To reach customer service, simply call  1-800-986-9248.

When making contact, most customer service agents would try to answer your question(s) and will resolve your issues almost every time.
