Take a walk around the Caesars Atlantic City property and notice there’s a significant gaming component missing: an on-property sportsbook.
Yes, Caesars Entertainment owns Bally’s and Harrah’s, which both started taking sports bets in August. Plus, Caesars and Bally’s Wild Wild West Casino are connected, so for now, the two properties are sharing a sportsbook.
But Caesars is the first and only of the three Atlantic City brands to roll out a mobile/online sportsbook for web browsers, and iOS and Android devices. The sportsbook went live Sept. 6 — the same day the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons opened the NFL season.
The Caesars Casino & Sports web/mobile offering is an extension of the previous casino-only product powered by Las Vegas-based Scientific Games via its OpenBet sportsbook platform.
So far, Caesars, SugarHouse and the iOS version of PokerStars NJ are the only three to offer the all-in-one package.

Caesers’ sports offerings
Caesars sportsbook offers a full menu of sports on the board, which includes:
- Canadian Football League
- College basketball
- College football
- Golf, including the PGA tour
- Soccer, including English Premier League
Sports betting wagers at Caesers
The Caesars app includes the traditional selection of betting options:
This straight bet is available for any sporting event and requires the bettor to pick the straight-up winner. Teams are listed with a three-digit number that appears after a plus sign (underdog) or minus sign (favorite).
If a player bets on the Kansas City Chiefs (-190) to defeat the Denver Broncos (+170) during Monday Night Football, the player needs to bet $190 to win $100. Had the Broncos won, the player would’ve earned $170 for every $100 wagered.
Point spread bets
In this case, the winner of the game may not be the winner of the bet. Betting on the underdog means getting points while the favorite loses points (In college football, this can get a little crazy.). If a player bets on the favorite at minus 3.5 points, and the team only wins by a field goal, the player is stuck with a losing ticket.
Total points bets
Also known as the over/under, the total points bet comes down to deciding which side of the line the final score will fall.
Just as it sounds, this is the chance to bet on a sporting event months before it takes place. The Caesars platform includes a “Futures” tab that has several of the potential wagers grouped by sport.
Some may want to take a chance betting that LeBron James and the Lakers will win the NBA Championship.
Inside the Caesars app
The Caesars Casino & Sports app design is very black and white — literally — regarding its color scheme. The platform is basic and differs from the slots lobby that features colorful rotating promo ads and slot graphics.
The navigation component is about as simple as it gets. The “Lobby” features a complete rundown of upcoming games broken down into baseball, football and basketball sections. The games for that day/week can be found under its respective category.
Unlike other sports betting apps, users can only view one betting option for each game in the lobby. The full rundown of wagers is located within each game box.
Additional games can be found by clicking on the “All Sports” tab. Users of the mobile app and web browser will notice the days of the week posted, offering more direct access to Saturday’s college football card or Sunday’s NFL games. The bigger games of the day — like the MLB playoffs and NFL primetime games — are highlighted in large boxes complete with start time, moneylines and the number of betting options available.
Answers to many common questions can be found by clicking on the “Support” tab.
Caesars Slots, table games, and sports
While some online competitors require multiple apps so players can enjoy the full casino experience, Caesars has integrated the sportsbook into its previously existing casino app.
There are separate “Casino” and “Sports” tabs located toward the top left of the page, making it simple for users to jump from slots and table games to the sportsbook lobby.
The added perk is the shared wallet, though promo cash doesn’t apply. Players can place moneyline or parlay bets and then click the casino tab to play some slots.
Some new slot titles include Jumanji, King Kong Fury and Witchcraft Academy. Games can be played in demo mode (play money) before logging into the app. Roulette, blackjack, video poker and table games are included, too.
Depositing at Caesars
There are several methods available to players to enter funds into their accounts ($10 minimum):
- Caesars Casino Cage
- Prepaid card
- Bank transfer
Withdrawals at Caesars
Withdrawal requests are processed via the “Cashier” in the “My Account” tab. Several of the deposit methods will also work for withdrawals ($10 minimum):
- Caesars Casino Cage
- Prepaid card
Caesars’ rewards members
Total Rewards members will enjoy the added perk of being awarded tier credits for their play. The system links all of the Caesars Entertainment properties, including those in Atlantic City and Nevada, together. This includes wagers on the Caesars Casino & Sports app/web browser. The rewards credits can be used toward dining, entertainment, hotel stays and more.
There are currently four tier levels:
- Gold: 0-4,999 tier credits
- Platinum: 4,999-14,999 tier credits
- Diamond: 15,000+ tier credits
- Seven Stars: $150,000+ tier credits (Exclusive Member invitation only)
Garden State gaming rules
- Location: The good news is players can view the Caesars Casino & Sports platform from outside of New Jersey, but those looking to wager will need to cross the bridge or take a trip down the New Jersey Turnpike.
- Age: Just like in Atlantic City, the gambling age requirement is at least 21 years old.
What players can’t play:
- Betting on high school sporting events is prohibited.
- No wagers are being accepted on collegiate athletic events taking place in New Jersey.
- Betting on any New Jersey-based college/university is not allowed, so interested players shouldn’t waste time analyzing the lines for the Big 10 football game between Rutgers and Penn State on Nov. 17. It doesn’t matter if the game is being played in the Garden State or Happy Valley.
Building a New Jersey sports betting empire
Caesars Entertainment is well-positioned to be one of the bigger operators when it comes to New Jersey sports betting. Besides having on-property books at Bally’s and Harrah’s, there is the possibility that Caesars could open one, too. Sports bettors can currently access the Bally’s sportsbook without stepping on the boardwalk.
The upside to owning three Atlantic City properties is it creates the potential for the company to have up to nine mobile/online sports betting platforms because each casino is permitted to have up to three online partnerships.
So far, the Caesars Casino & Sports and the recently launched 888Sport apps are both operating under the Caesars Atlantic City umbrella. The latter product launched Sept. 10 and is part of Caesars partnership with 888 Holdings, which also includes 888 Poker and 888 Casino.
The sports component of the Caesars app falls short in the first-deposit-match promo. Other online sportsbooks are offering between $200 to $500 in match play. While Caesars is offering several promos, it applies to the casino games which doesn’t do anything for the sports bettors. The popular in-game and cash-out options are currently unavailable, but there is the possibility they could be added to an updated version.
Caesars is the flagship brand in the Caesars Entertainment portfolio. Like going to the supermarket for a bottle of a Coke or Pepsi, sometimes it all about the name. If players desire an easy-to-navigate sports betting app, this one is certainly worth checking out.
Caesars Sportsbook NJ shares its wallet with Caesars online casino, a well-known brand in NJ online gambling. As such, players will be familiar with how Caesars operates. While the software has its issues, the overall simplicity and ease-of-use for the NJ sportsbook app is to be commended. And you gotta love the $10 free no deposit offer for your first bet.
