ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) ("Caesars") today announced its sports wagering mobile app, Caesars Sportsbook, is accepting sports bets in the state of Maryland. Eligible sports fans can now enjoy an elevated mobile sports wagering experience on iOS, Android, or desktop while taking advantage of industry-leading rewards and special sign-up offers.
"The launch of the Caesars Sportsbook app in Maryland strengthens our offering for customers in the state," said Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital. "With a historically jam-packed sports calendar, customers can now enjoy access to the same unmatched rewards they've experienced when betting at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, in the palm of their hands."
Caesars has a longstanding legacy in Maryland through Horseshoe Baltimore's offering of premium entertainment experiences. Caesars Sportsbook at Horseshoe Baltimore has offered in-person sports betting since its grand opening in December 2021 and will shortly accept cash deposits to fund sports wagering mobile accounts on the Caesars Sportsbook app.
The Caesars Sportsbook app is anchored by intuitive features with a focus on speed, ease of use, multiple ways to deposit funds, and faster payouts. Getting a bet down on the app has never been easier and sports bettors can enjoy live scoreboards, expanded in-play betting options, as well as same-game parlays, new cashout functionality, and thousands of additional markets.
Starting today, eligible sports fans in Maryland can download the Caesars Sportsbook app, register, and deposit funds to take advantage of one of two special sign-up offers for first-time users.
Caesars Sportsbook is the only app in Maryland that combines sports wagering with world-class rewards through the industry-leading customer loyalty program, Caesars Rewards. Maryland sports bettors can now earn Tier Credits for status and Reward Credits with every mobile wager placed that can be redeemed for unforgettable Caesars Rewards experiences like discounted getaways at Caesars destinations across the United States, and more. In Maryland specifically, customers can get special access to tickets, merchandise, and meet-and-greets with Baltimore Ravens' legends made possible through Caesars Sportsbook's designation as Premier Sports Betting Partner and Horseshoe Baltimore's status as the only Official Casino Partner of the team.
In January 2021, Caesars and Horseshoe Baltimore committed to seeking a mobile sports betting license in which diversity partners would hold an interest of at least 25 percent. This goal was accomplished for mobile sports betting's launch with women and minority partners holding a 40 percent ownership interest in the approved mobile gaming license utilized by Caesars Sportsbook.
The Caesars Sportsbook & Casino Truck is currently parked at Horseshoe Baltimore to engage and educate customers on how to download the app and sports wager responsibly. Caesars is an industry leader in responsible gaming with a continued focus on responsible gaming education as Caesars Sportsbook continues to expand into new markets. The Caesars Sportsbook app has tools to encourage responsible play, including Deposit Limits, Spending Limits, Daily Time Limits, and Cool Off Time Limits.
