This week, Caesars Entertainment announced one more lucrative partnership that will enhance its offerings. The company has inked a collaboration with the New York Mets, thus making its Caesars Sportsbook official sports betting partner for the baseball team. Through this agreement, members of the Caesars Rewards, will have additional access to VIP experiences and even more.
Caesars Sportsbook which recently debuted in New York State’s new mobile sports betting market is the only app in the state that rewards its players for every bet they place. This is achieved by unlocking experiences to players within the company’s portfolio of offerings and collaborations. Locals can download the app on their Android or iOS devices and start wagering on the MLB season.
Through this latest agreement, users of Caesars Sportsbook who are part of the Caesars Rewards program will be able to enjoy even further VIP options. In addition to that, via the deal, the company plans to open a brand-new sportsbook lounge at Citi Field, which is expected to open during the current MLB season, and it will stretch over 13,000 square foot space.
The new venue will also feature a multi-tiered dining facility as well as an outdoor patio with seating with a panoramic view that overlooks the left part of the field. According to Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital, New York is a crucial jurisdiction for the company after its recent launch in the state and the Mets’ huge fan base will help the company greatly improve in the market.
With the partnership, the sportsbook will have access to the team’s logos, marks, TV-visible in-game signage, as well as broadcast and digital content across the Mets’ facilities. This will further enhance the betting firm’s already broad exposure in the Empire State. Currently, the company’s sportsbook is available in 23 states and jurisdictions, out of which 17 are online sectors.
Caesars Entertainment is the betting company that runs and operates the largest number of retail sportsbooks in the U.S. This includes some gaming hotspots across the country, such as Turning Stone Casino & Resort, Yellow Brick Road Casino, as well as Point Place Casino which is operated by the Oneida Indian Nation. The company also oversees Harrah’s Resort and Tropicana in Atlantic City.
