Caesars Sportsbook Review
Caesars, or more likely under its full title of Caesars Palace is a brand name more commonly linked in the popular imagination with casino gaming than sportsbook betting. Unsurprisingly it’s been operating a U.S. legal online casino for New Jersey (and UK) residents for sometime now – it was licensed for real money online gaming by the state of New Jersey in later 2013 – but it’s now launched a Sport tab on its casino site to take advantage of the recent change in U.S. law allowing states to now license online sportsbook betting too. The company is operated by the Caesars Entertainment Corporation, but has partnered with the world-leading gaming software developer SG Digital (formerly NYX) to deliver its online betting service.

Layout & Usability
As mentioned in our introduction, Caesars Sportsbook is integrated into the Caesars Online Casino site and registration to play brings the benefit of a one-wallet player account to let you enjoy all the betting entertainment offered on the site. By partnering with SG, Caesars’ has made a wise choice to use that company’s longstanding experience in creating in-demand online betting services with state-of-the-art design and usability. This is a site that’s both easy to navigate and intuitive to use when it comes to compiling and managing your preferred single, parlay and round-robin bets from its selection of offered markets.
At the time of review, the sports categories covered were baseball, basketball, combat sports (covering boxing and MMA), football, golf, hockey, soccer and tennis which should probably cover most U.S. bettors’ tastes. However, it should be noted that Caesars Sportsbook is yet to implement live in-play betting in any meaningful way, which may deter some users. We can’t imagine this facility won’t be developed in the future as its popularity with players cannot be ignored, but we note it here in case it is a deal breaker for you.
For mobile bettors Caesars offers its integrated casino and sportsbook service as a very fully featured and convenient native app for both iOS and Android devices. Unusually the Android app isn’t currently available from the Google Play store, but navigating to the main site on an Android browser will let you access the ‘download now’ link to grab the app this way.
Mobile & Tablet
Caesars Sportsbook offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.

Caesars Sportsbook offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. Caesars uses Live Chat, Email, Phone and Post.
Caesars Sportsbook leaves us with a bit of a conundrum. We like the convenience of having a one-stop-shop for both casino and sportsbook betting, and the ease of use this service provides whether accessing it from a desktop or mobile device. However we do think the lack of in-play betting is a disappointment and serious omission in the current market. This may well change – we sincerely believe it will – but in the meantime we imagine it’s a weakness that will drive many potential players into its rival’s online arms.
