One of the foremost casino and sports betting operators, Caesars Entertainment, has finally opened its Caesars Sportsbook at the Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona, with the help of the MLB baseball team the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The retail sportsbook spans two stories and over 22,300-square-feet and is physically located right near Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

According to Caesars, the retail sportsbook facility and its accompanying restaurant is unlike anything that has opened to date, showcasing a total of nine betting windows and 13 self-service betting kiosks. Also included are wall-to-wall flatscreen televisions, a patio area, and plush lounge-style seating on both floors, boasting a total capacity of more than 425. Private space is also available to rent for those looking to host private events.

Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field Phoenix was kicked off with a launch event on June 21st, 2022, featuring presentations from both Caesars and Arizona Diamondbacks representatives, along with a sampling menu, symbolic first bets, and finally a $20,000 donation from Caesars to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.

Caesars Partnered with Omaha Productions for Podcast Series in June 2022

Earlier in June 2022, Caesars Entertainment made its foray into the podcasting world with the announcement of a new partnership with Omaha Productions – the entertainment business founded by former National Football League (NFL) player Peyton Manning.

The deal will see the two work together to create and launch the Omaha Audio Network, a full-service audio production network that will host a series of various podcasts. In addition to this, Caesars and Omaha will also serve as executive producers for a new digital series that will be promoted across both businesses’ social media channels.

Finally, both Caesars Entertainment and Omaha Productions will work together on an exclusive live event series catered towards members of the Caesars Rewards loyalty program. This series will enable such members to interact directly with Omaha content creators and the Mannings at special events hosted at Caesars destinations all around the US.

NFL legend and Omaha Productions founder Peyton Manning hyped up the forthcoming original content arriving as a result of the partnership with Caesars Entertainment:

“All of us at Omaha are excited to expand the relationship and have Omaha create compelling original content in partnership with our teammates at Caesars. Caesars has already proven to be a great partner on the projects we have done together.”

Caesars Racebook App is Now Live in Florida and Ohio

Caesars continues to expand its presence all around the country, with its Caesars Racebook mobile app recently launching in Florida and Ohio. The move comes as the result of a partnership between Caesars and NYRA Bets, the latter of which is the official wagering platform of the New York Racing Association.

Sports bettors in Florida and Ohio are now able to take part in pari-mutuel wagering on premier horse racing content from more than 250 tracks around the world. Sweetening the deal for new customers who sign up for the Caesars Racebook app is the eligibility for a 100% first deposit match up to $500.

Dan Shapiro, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Caesars Digital, hailed the app’s launch as an important milestone for the operator:

“The launch of Caesars Racebook is an important milestone as we continue to add wagering opportunities for our customers and livestreaming content for the first time. Caesars Racebook is truly differentiated as the first horse racing advance deposit wagering app to include our award-winning Caesars Rewards loyalty program. We look forward to welcoming new horse racing customers and existing fans onto the platform and to working with NYRA Bets to grow horse racing as we deploy Caesars Racebook with plans to launch in about 30 states across the country.”
