- Caesars Sportsbook has launched mobile and online sports betting in Kansas.
- Kansas sports betting launched on September 1.
- Caesars Entertainment operates two retail casinos in nearby Missouri including Harrah’s North Kansas City.
Kansas is the hot state of the moment with a number of sportsbooks rushing to launch mobile (and in some cases retail) betting prior to the start of the NFL season. Caesars Sportsbook is also live with mobile betting in Kansas joining PointsBet, Golden Nugget, BetMGM and FanDuel. One thing Caesars won’t have in Kansas is a retail sportsbook–they own no gaming properties in the state. The closest Caesars location is right over the border in Kansas City, Missouri (Harrah’s Kansas City). There’s also a Horseshoe casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa–just under 3 hours from the Kansas City metro area.
Here’s the official announcement from the Caesars Entertainment press release:
Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) (“Caesars”) today announced its sports wagering mobile app, Caesars Sportsbook, is available for download in Kansas. Eligible sports fans can now enjoy mobile sports betting on iOS, Android, or desktop while taking advantage of industry-leading rewards.
The Caesars Sportsbook app features improved performance with a focus on speed, ease of use, and intuitive features to make getting a bet down easier than ever. The launch of Caesars Sportsbook in Kansas expands Caesars’ already-established footprint in the Midwest through its offering of premium entertainment experiences at top gaming destinations Harrah’s North Kansas City and Isle of Capri Hotel Boonville in neighboring Missouri and Harrah’s and Horseshoe Council Bluffs in Iowa.
Caesars Sportsbook is the only app in Kansas that combines an elevated sports wagering experience with unmatched rewards made possible through the app’s integration with the industry-leading customer loyalty program Caesars Rewards. Every wager placed earns Tier Credits for status and Reward Credits that can be redeemed for unforgettable Caesars Rewards experiences, discounted getaways at Caesars destinations across the United States, bonus cash in the app, world-class culinary experiences, and much more.
Of course there’s a quote–and from one of the best in the business at the press release quote–Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital:
“We’re proud to deliver a world-class sports betting experience that matches the championship pedigree Kansas is known for,” said . “Our Caesars Sportsbook app has never been more user-friendly, and when you combine that with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities offered through Caesars Rewards, we’re thrilled about what we can bring to Kansas sports fans in time for football season.”
Caesars Sportsbook operates the most retail sportsbooks in the country (by virtue of the William Hill purchase) and is now live in 26 states and North American jurisdictions—19 of which are mobile.
