Caesars increases Louisiana foothold via sportsbook and poker additions

Caesars Entertainment has overseen the launch of two new sportsbook locations in Louisiana, with an additional poker room installed as the largest of its kind in the region.

Gamblers within the Pelican State can now access Caesars sportsbook offerings at two more locations, with casinos Harrah’s New Orleans and Horseshoe Bossier City launching the offerings last week.

Louisiana’s largest poker room was also instituted at the former, dubbed as the World Series of Poker room, representing the Caesars owned brand.

“This was a special week for Caesars and our longstanding commitment to Louisiana,” commented Dan Real, Regional President of Caesars Entertainment. 

“The opening of our world-class Caesars Sportsbook locations and the new World Series of Poker Room add to the legacy that Harrah’s New Orleans and Horseshoe Bossier City have built in the Gulf Coast region.

“We’re ready to welcome sports fans into our sportsbooks, and we’re proud to open the largest poker room in Louisiana, true to the WSOP brand and what it represents.”

Caesars’ sportsbook installation at Harrah’s utilises 5,700 square footage with four betting windows, 12 self-service kiosks and a 147-foot video screen. Adjacent to that is the WSOP room which hosts 20 tables.

In Bossier City, Horseshoe’s 6,900-square-foot sportsbook features three betting windows, 15 betting kiosks and more than 94 television sets. Caesar’s Bossier City location has also installed a VIP viewing section and a “massive” bar.

Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, added: “These incredible openings are a testament to Louisiana residents, our Team Members and the guests who visit these historic resorts,” 

“We truly feel like we’re part of the home team in Louisiana, and we take pride in serving the great customers and sports fans in the state.”
