When is the Upgraded, Rebranded Caesars Sportsbook Coming To Pennsylvania?

Written By Katie Kohler on January 13, 2022

“You are, I am, we are all Caesars!” says J.B. Smoove playing the former Roman dictator in perhaps the most hype opening of a sportsbook commercial.

Well…sort of.  The new version of the Caesars Sportsbook has yet to go live in Pennsylvania.

Caesars online sportsbook upgraded in August…just not in PA

Caesars online sportsbook launched in Pennsylvania in March 2020. At the time, it was obvious the arrival was meant to coincide with the start March Madness. Instead, COVID-19 shut down college and pro sports for months. In August 2021, Caesars unveiled a rebranded and upgraded Caesars Sportsbook with:

  • Customized offers
  • Flexible limits
  • A wide range of betting lines
  • Liberty, the company’s owned and integrated tech stack

Caesars Sportsbooks links with Caesars Rewards loyalty program and bets earn Caesars Rewards Tier Credits and Reward Credits. Reward Credits earned within the Caesars Rewards network can be redeemed at over fifty destinations across states for things such as free play, dining, getaways and more.

However, the rebranded sportsbook app was not immediately available in Pennsylvania. At the time, reps from Caesers told PlayPennsylvania they, “look forward to bringing the new Caesars Sportsbook app to Pennsylvania and are working with state regulators to make it happen over the coming months.”

What’s the difference? Aside from the visual differences, the upgraded version had bet boosts, more promotions, and the option to build same game parlays. (The screenshots of the new version are from Caesars New Jersey. Games for the online casino differ in each state.)

Caesars Sportsbook live in New York

On Jan. 8 2022, mobile sports betting arrived in New York. You can wager on the new version of Caesars sports betting app in New York. It was a huge weekend for wagering for the Big Apple. According to tracking information from GeoComply, weekend geolocation volumes for NY hit 17.2 million pings, including more than eight million pings in New York City.

But the launch wasn’t without its problems, especially for Caesars, which was down for a few hours due to high volume and wasn’t very user-friendly.

New Caesars PA Sportsbook

So, when is the new, upgraded Caesars Sportsbook coming to Pennsylvania? We had to ask since New York has it.

PlayPennsylvania followed up with Caesars this week and reps said to “stay tuned…”

Until then…You are, I am, we are all…waiting.

Sportsbooks in Pennsylvania

There are currently 13 legal, regulated sports betting apps live in Pennsylvania. FanDuel has dominated since arrival and about 33% of all online wagering in PA in Nov. 2021 was done on FanDuel.

Online handle in Pennsylvania in November hit $704 million. Caesars sportsbook only accounted for .5% of all online bets. Since July 2021, Caesars online sportsbook’s gross taxable revenue has been in the red.
