Caesars Entertainment launches Racebook App for horse racing wagering in New York State

Caesars Entertainment has launched its horse racing account wagering app, Caesars Racebook, in New York State, allowing horse racing enthusiasts to engage in pari-mutuel wagering on premier horse racing events from around the world. This wagering system is integrated with Caesars Rewards, a loyalty program within the gaming industry.

The introduction of Racebook app in New York marks an expansion following its successful rollout in sixteen states. These states encompass California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wyoming.

“This is an important expansion of the partnership between NYRA Bets and Caesars Racebook that will contribute to the success of horse racing in New York State now and in the future,” said Tony Allevato, President of NYRA Bets.

Powered by NYRA Bets, Caesars Racebook provides bettors with a secure, state-of-the-art platform that allows customers to conveniently watch and wager on the world’s best horse racing. Caesars Racebook is now available in New York on iOS, Android and desktop.

The accessibility of Caesars Racebook will be limited to individuals aged 21 and above. Additionally, newly registered users can avail themselves of a 100% first deposit match, with the cap set at $200.

Each wager made through Caesars Racebook accumulates Caesars Rewards Tier Credits, thus enhancing players' status. Moreover, players accrue Reward Credits, which hold the potential for redemption in exclusive Caesars Rewards experiences across Caesars' extensive network of over 50 destinations across the U.S. and Canada. Caesars Rewards members also have the option to convert their Reward Credits into Wyndham Rewards points, facilitating the possibility of redeeming them for stays at a wide range of hotels, vacation club resorts, and vacation rentals spanning across more than 50,000 global locations.

 Caesars is the presenting sponsor of the National Horseplayers Championship hosted annually at the recently rebranded Horseshoe Las Vegas and operates horse racing tracks at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, Horseshoe Indianapolis, Harrah’s Philadelphia, and Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs. The Company also recently broke ground on Harrah’s Columbus Racing & Casino, a casino, sportsbook, and mile-long thoroughbred racetrack coming in 2024 to Columbus, Neb. In addition to upcoming races at Caesars Sportsbook partner racetracks Del Mar, Monmouth Park, Keeneland and Red Mile Racing & Gaming in Kentucky, the Caesars Racebook wagering menu includes Aqueduct, Belmont Park, Saratoga Race Course, Gulfstream Park, and Santa Anita, as well as Caesars-operated tracks.

Following regulatory approvals, Caesars Racebook plans to continue to launch in additional states across the U.S.
