As part of its efforts to extend the reach of its sports betting brand, Caesars Entertainment Inc., has recently inked a lucrative partnership with the New York Mets. The terms of the multi-year partnership will make Caesars Sportsbook the team’s official sports betting partner.
This is an exciting development for sports betting enthusiasts in the state as well as for all the parties involved in the partnership. Among the perks that will become a reality, thanks to the partnership are special VIP experiences and a solid range of hospitality assets. These will be exclusively for members of Caesars Rewards, the casino operator’s renowned loyalty program.
Plans for New Sportsbook
Perhaps the most exciting news is that the partnership also shared plans for the launch of a new sports betting lounge. This will be located at Citi Field, Caesars Sports at the Metro Grille. It will be a 13,000-square-foot betting space and will feature a multi-tiered dining room as well as outdoor patio seating.
Bettors who visit the space will also get to enjoy amazing panoramic views from the lounge. They will also get to experience the full betting capabilities that have been built right into the Caesars Sportsbook app.
“New York is a key state for us following the successful launch of our Caesars Sportsbook app in January. The Mets’ fanbase is one of the most loyal in baseball and this partnership offers us the chance to treat those passionate fans like Caesars. We look forward to opening our space at Citi Field during an exciting time for the franchise.”Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital.
If you are wondering when you will be able to experience the new sportsbook, Caesars Entertainment’s leaders noted that the plan is to have the space go live during the upcoming 2022 Major League Baseball season.
The new partnership with the New York Mets aside, Caesars Sportsbook is also one of the earliest entrants into the newly-launched Ontario iGaming market. Thanks to its reputation as a leading online sportsbook in the United States, it should not be too hard for Caesars to successfully gain some market share in Ontario.
Players in the Canadian province can sign up now and enjoy a ton of great betting options as well as access to some outstanding rewards. The operator is likely to extend its footprint in the country in the years but we will have to wait and see how its venture in Ontario fairs.
