Caesars is one of the most recognizable gambling brands in the world. They recently purchased William Hill Sportsbook, which originated in the UK and opened a U.S. branch in 2012 in Nevada. They operate brick-and-mortar race books as well as an online sportsbook. They have since expanded from Nevada and New Jersey. William Hill not only offers an online experience, but they are the operators of sportsbooks at Monmouth Park racetrack and the Tropicana hotel and casino in Atlantic City. Those assets will now be part of the Caesar’s brand and give them an international gaming reach.
Caesars Sportsbook Deposit Bonus
The current Caesars signup bonus is a $5,000 risk-free first bet. This is a crazy number. This bonus will likely drop to the standard $500 offered by most other books, so make sure to take advantage of this one ASAP. Of course, the risk-free bet means you get a $5,000 bet voucher if your initial bet loses, but it is still good to know that if you drop any amount up to $5,000 and lose your first bet that it will be refunded in the form of a voucher for a second chance to win.
Bets Offered at Caesar’s Sportsbook
Caesars is a full-service sportsbook. They offer the typical spread, moneyline and total wagers on sporting events. They have a full futures book with both team and individual awards offered. They offer a full range of exotic wagers as well, from parlays to teasers and quite a few other bets that encompass one or both of those bet types. If you want to get money down on something, Caesars is very likely to offer whatever it is you want to wager on.
Sports You Can Bet on at Caesars Sportsbook
The William Hill betting page does not have as robust an offering as some of the other books. Hopefully the merger with Caesars changes that. They offer all the major sports you would expect, but they do have a smaller total amount of sports available. Unlike some other books, they do not try to play as deep in these smaller niche sports.
- NCAA football
- NCAA basketball
- Formula One
Does Caesars have a mobile app?
Yes, they do. The app was not great before the acquisition, but this should change. William Hill has a desktop platform, a mobile sports betting app, and a ton of brick-and-mortar locations all across the country. Those will be absorbed and beefed up. Whether on your computer, your phone, or in the vicinity of any of the brick-and-mortar locations, Caesars will give you plenty of options to get your money down.
How to Download on iOS
The iOS app is available in the app store. You do need to sign up for an account in order to use the app. You can sign up in person at any of their brick-and-mortar locations, or just click the sign up link on the page after you download the app. You will be prompted to put in your personal information and once you do, you will be ready to play.
How to Download on Android
The Android app is the same as always. You have to go to the website from your mobile device and download the app. Once the app is downloaded, make sure your phone/tablet has permission to open it. At that point, you follow the same directions to register for an account. Once that is done, you will be ready to play.
How Do I Deposit at Caesars Sportsbook?
Caesars has a growing list of ways to fund your account. The easiest ways for online users are to fund directly with your bank account. They also offer the options of using a debit or credit card to start your wagering bankroll. They offer options like Paynear me, Play+ and wire transfers as well. You also have the option of using the live tellers at any of the brick-and-mortar locations you can use to put money into your account.
Caesars Sportsbook Review
Caesars has always had a sportsbook. Will Hill has been in the bookmaking game for a long time in Europe. They were one of the first to start getting a foothold in America even before Sports betting was legal in states outside of Nevada. They have a very solid customer service department if you have any trouble funding your account or with ongoing operation of it. They are not the lowest cost provider we have available in the States, but the prices are not egregious. They are one of the best when it comes to soccer, probably because they are able to offset that market with a massive share of the European soccer betting market. I tend to find they are priced a tad worse than some of the other American books for leagues like the NBA and NFL, so just keep that in mind.
