US – Caesars app goes live in Ohio ahead of 2023 sports sporting legalisationBy William - 31 October 2022
Caesars Sportsbook is live on desktop and the Caesars Sportsbook app is available for download in Ohio on iOS and Android.
Sports fans in the Buckeye State can now register and deposit funds with a special early registration offer so they can place their first wagers as soon as legalised sports betting starts 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.”
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 popular racino will open a state-of-the-art 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 marquee sporting events across the state to engage and educate eligible sports fans on how to download the app and sports wager responsibly.
The partnership with the Cavaliers also includes plans to open a retail sportsbook on the street level inside the Northwest Atrium area of the team’s home venue, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
The new sportsbook, opening on Jan. 1, will mark the third at a U.S. professional sports facility for Caesars, adding to th first in-arena sportsbook of Caesars Sportsbook at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., and Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field in Arizona.
