Legalized sports betting is officially underway in the state of Ohio, and Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) (“Caesars”) today announced that its sports betting wagering platform, Caesars Sportsbook, is officially live on desktop and available for download on iOS and Android.
Eligible sports fans can now wager responsibly while earning unmatched Caesars Rewards on the Caesars Sportsbook app or by visiting two new Caesars Sportsbook retail locations now accepting bets in the Buckeye State.
“Caesars Sportsbook is ready to offer a top-of-the-line sports betting experience to Ohioans,” said Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital. “This launch builds on our legacy in Ohio of treating customers like royalty. We look forward to providing an added level of excitement to the sports entertainment experience, whether they use our mobile app or visit one of our new retail sportsbooks in Columbus or Cleveland.”
In addition to the Caesars Sportsbook mobile app, Caesars Sportsbook is now accepting in-person sports wagers and mobile account cash deposits at two popular entertainment destinations familiar to Ohioans.
In Columbus, sports fans can now head to one of the state’s premier horse racing and gaming destinations, Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs, where the popular racino’s brand-new Caesars Sportsbook location is accepting sports bets via convenient betting windows and self-service betting kiosks.
As the “Official Sports Betting Partner” and the “Official Casino Partner” of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Caesars Sportsbook is also now accepting in-person sports wagers at Caesars Sportsbook inside Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
The more than 10,000-square-foot sportsbook located on the street level inside the Northwest Atrium area of the team’s home venue will officially celebrate with a ceremonial grand opening event on January 2, marking the first day the sportsbook will be open on a Cavs game day.
