Caesars readies to match Ohio ‘pedigree’ via sportsbook launch

Caesars Entertainment has confirmed that its sportsbook is live in the state of Ohio, with fans in the Buckeye State able to access via desktop or downloading the app. 

Fans in the state will be able to register and deposit funds via a special early registration offer, allowing them to be able to place their first wager as soon as the Ohio market is legalised on January 1, 2023.

“Ohio’s rich tradition of sports excellence speaks for itself,” said Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital. “Caesars Sportsbook is ready to match the pedigree and passion of Ohio sports fans with a sports wagering experience that treats them like royalty.”

The Caesars Sportsbook app provides customers with multiple ways to deposit funds and receive faster payouts. In addition, sports bettors can experience live scoreboards, expanded in-play betting options, as well as same-game parlays, new cashout functionality, and more ways to wager with thousands of additional markets.

Available immediately, eligible sports fans anywhere in Ohio can download the Caesars Sportsbook app, register, and deposit funds to take advantage of a special sign-up offer for first-time users.

Caesars Entertainment has a long legacy in Ohio through its offering of premium entertainment experiences at top horse racing and gaming destination Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs in Columbus. 

The racino will open a Caesars Sportsbook location to accept convenient cash-deposit sports wagers in person on the first day that legalised sports wagering goes live in Ohio. 

Leading up to sports betting’s launch, the Caesars Sportsbook & Casino Truck will make stops at Scioto Downs and sporting events across the state to engage and educate eligible sports fans on how to download the app and sports wager responsibly.

The new sportsbook, opening on January 1, will mark the third at a US professional sports facility for Caesars, adding to the Caesars Sportsbook at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC and Chase Field in Arizona.
