It’s been nearly six months since Louisiana online sports betting went live. At this point, the state’s online sports betting community has had some time to settle in. You could say legal sports betting has become a normal part of life for Louisiana residents and visitors.
Facilitating the demand, there are already many options for online sports bettors across the state. Many of the leading sports betting operators in the US have launched their betting apps in the Bayou State. The list includes Barstool Sports, BetMGM, BetRivers, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and WynnBET.
Of course singling out one of these apps over the others is a subjective exercise. But just like in other legal states, Caesars Sportsbook is clearly a fan favorite. So what is it that makes Caesars such an attractive option for sports betting enthusiasts?
The History of Caesars
Caesars Sportsbook is owned and operated by Caesars Interactive Entertainment. The Caesars brand has been a dominant force in the gambling industry since Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino appeared in Las Vegas more than 50 years ago. But translating that experience to the brave new world of online sports betting isn’t a guarantee.
The Caesars online sportsbook first launched in 2019 to moderate enthusiasm. They appeared to be taking a lowkey approach to their US expansion. It wasn’t until Caesars purchased Europe’s William Hill sports betting brand in April of 2021 that the rapid ascent of the Caesars app really began.
As for their presence in Louisiana, they declared their ambitions at an early stage. In 2021, they signed a stadium naming partnership with the Superdome. They are also pursuing sponsorship deals with the state’s professional sports franchises. Now, the Caesars sports betting brand is even being offered by multiple Louisiana Riverboat casinos.
Caesars is clearly very committed to Louisiana sports betting.
The Caesars Louisiana Sports Betting App
The Caesars Sportsbook app has risen to the point where it is competing on a level playing field with the likes of DraftKings and BetMGM. They’ve done this by making their platform attractive to look at and easy to use. The website, mobile website and app share the same feel and are all similarly appealing.
The Caesar’s app meets the needs of Louisiana sports bettors from all points of view. It offers access to all of the top sports betting markets. That includes US pro sports like the NBA (New Orleans Pelicans), NFL (New Orleans Saints), WNBA, MLB, NHL, MSL, NASCAR, and PGA Tour golf. It also features NCAA sports when in season.
At the international level, Caesars accept wagers on a variety of markets. They have top international European soccer leagues, Aussie Rules Football, the Canadian Football League, MMA/boxing, rugby, cricket, tennis, international basketball and baseball. And that’s just a selection, depending on the time of year there will probably be more.
Caesars Louisiana Bonus Offers
Truthfully, the range of sports available is not really a differentiating factor for Caesars. All of Louisiana’s mobile sports betting operators are offering access to many of the same sports betting markets. What sets Caesars Sportsbook apart from the rest is the bonus menu that adds the most daily value to Louisiana sports bettors.
Every day, Caesars posts daily offers for free bets and profit boost opportunities. That’s in addition to the generous welcome offer. New customers can make their first sports bet risk-free. If that first bet loses up to a max bet of $1,100, Caesars will give out a full rebate in the form of a free bet.
In the end, naming a “best of” in any arena boils down to a combination of factors. Certainly, Caesars has name recognition and a strong relationship with the sporting landscape in Louisiana. But it’s the willingness to offer extra value to Louisiana sports bettors that earns Caesars the crown.
