Sportsbook Website Review
Caesars Casino and Sport online in New Jersey is a combined internet-based casino/sportsbook. It is located at the brick and mortar Caesars Palace Casino in Atlantic City.
It’s one of the 40 gambling and betting properties owned by Caesars Entertainment Corporation in the US and overseas.
Along with New Jersey, Caesars operates Casinos and betting shops in Nevada, home of its first US gaming establishment.
It offers online gaming and betting to UK residents and plans growing its US footprint as sports-betting spreads here.
The NJ sportsbook is available to anyone 21 years or older inside New Jersey borders.
On November 21, 2013 Caesars Casino Online operation was licensed and approved by the state of New Jersey. Its online sportsbook opened in September 2018 – just in time to catch the NFL and NCAA football seasons.
Needing one and the same mobile app or website to play Casino games and place bets is one of Caesars major features.
Go to https://www.caesarscasino.com and you’ll find Sport-betting is just a click away from Casino slots, roulette, poker, blackjack and baccarat.
And you can use the same account and wallet in the process. You can even combine your gaming and betting loyalty rewards.
For clarification purposes it should be mentioned at this stage that this is essentially a sportsbook review. We won’t be going into any detail about Caesars’ gaming activities.
And from the get-go we have to say its home pages on both its website and mobile apps hardly take the breath away.
It’s neat and tidy and isn’t difficult to understand and navigate. But in white and black with a few touches of brown it’s old-worldly with nothing standing out that excites.
At the top of the page there is a line of buttons starting with ‘Casino’ and followed by ‘Sport”.
Click on ‘Casino’ and wow! The page opens up with a flash of brilliantly colored cartoon graphics with names like ‘China Shores’, ‘Turn your Fortune’, ‘Bonanza’, ‘Endless Treasure’ and ‘Grand Spin’.
Click on Sport and up comes the same pale brown, white and black blocks of text you’ve just come from on the home page.
Now click on promotions which apply to both sports-betting and Casino games and what do you get? You guessed right – brighter colours and interesting cartoon characters.
Perhaps Caesars’ market researchers found that while Casino gamers like things bright and flashy, sports punters have much more mundane tastes.
Or is their sportsbook simply a poorer relation offering Casino gamers a lighter distraction after a game of heavy poker or blackjack?
Caesars’ betting book lists all the big American sports that count, among them football, basketball, baseball, hockey and soccer. It also carries those international sports most enjoyed by Americans, such as tennis, golf, boxing, MMA and motor racing. World-wide soccer is especially well represented.
But otherwise its sports menu is probably the thinnest of all New Jersey sportsbooks. There was no sign of cricket and Olympic sports like cycling, track and field, swimming handball or volleyball.
Money line, spread and total bets could be placed on the main screen while futures, prop and parlay bets on the same events were available if you tapped on the match-ups.
But Caesars was clearly short on live, in-play betting. Most times I tapped on a button marked “in-play” a message came up reading: “Sorry no betting opportunities right now”.
One really good feature is the chance it gives you to build custom parlay bets. This is because when you select a wager, Caesars creates a betting slip tracking these current bets.
It records how much you’re risking and how much you stand to win. When you add more bets to the betting slip, it automatically creates a parlay option. The odds reflecting your selections are generated automatically.
Bonuses and Promotions:
Caesars clearly believes casino and sportsbook promotions and bonuses pay off. On ‘tapping’ on Caesars promotions I was immediately struck by their sheer colour and graphics.
There were 6 proms when we did this review. Three were for the Casino, two for the sportsbook and another that offered loyalty cash payments for both.
Hers how they were presented:
- Overlooked by a helmeted footballer, the first one read. “Join now and get a 10$ free bet.
- The next one said: Make your first deposit using SPORTS300 and we will match your first sports bet – up to $300!
- From October 1 – 31, earn drawing entries for a chance to win a seat in the 2020 Millionaire Maker Slot Tournament held in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace.
- From October 11 – 14, make a deposit of $40 or more using bonus code DAILY20 and you’ll get $20 in bonus play each day!
- From October 11 – 14, don’t miss your chance to win premium tickets to a New Jersey Devils game. Tickets include center ice seats and access to all you can eat (food and soft beverages)!
- Your play is worth real money! You can convert your Online Reward Credits to cash deposited directly into your account. For every 1,000 Reward Credits converted, we’ll add $10 to your available cash balance
Caesars is able to offer a wide range of payment options with safe and secure transactions.
Those available for making deposits include MasterCard and Visa credit cards, PayPal, Caesar online banking, PayNearMe at 7-11, Neteller or with cash at a Caesars Casino cashiers’ cage.
There are few withdrawal options, but they are enough. They include: Instant eCheck, Pay Pal, Caesars Prepaid Card, Online banking or with cash at a Caesars Casino cashiers’ cage.
Caesars must value the importance of efficient, well-informed customer support. It’s not possible to please all of the people all of the time, but they have a reputation for getting close. And they do it 24/7 via live chat, telephone and internet services. They also provide FAQ help on site.
Caesars’ New Jersey sportsbook will work well for those sportsbook players who value ease of operation, speed and simplicity, especially if Casino gambling is their main thing.
Punters who expect large sports menus that include exotic, little-known sports types and large betting markets won’t be too happy with it, though. It offers too little in the way of variation.
However, if US sport is your thing and you like cutting to the chase it may be well worth your while to take that $10 free bonus and give it a shot.
And yes, this especially so if you also enjoy having a stab at the slots or a roulette table.
Sign up now. I doubt you’ll regret it.
