Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, part of Caesars Entertainment Inc, has unveiled its new Caesars Sportsbook, with Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in attendance, joined by Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, former Ravens greats Torrey Smith and Adalius Thomas, and former NBA star Muggsy Bogues.
The facility, which is now officially accepting in-person wagers on a wide range of sporting events, represents a critical element in the transformation of the casino’s first level into a highly immersive entertainment environment, said Caesars.
Randy Conroy, Horseshoe Baltimore Senior Vice President and General Manager, commented: “We are pleased to introduce the industry’s leading sports wagering brand to Baltimore and Maryland. Caesars Sportsbook offers the best sports wagering experience in markets across America, and now Marylanders will have the opportunity to enjoy all of its many benefits exclusively at Horseshoe Baltimore.
“As with any type of wager made at Horseshoe Baltimore, bets placed at Caesars Sportsbook count toward unique perks in our Caesars Rewards player loyalty program.”
Governor Hogan noted: “Today marks the culmination of more than a year of effort to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland. In addition to allowing Marylanders to bet on the NFL, March Madness, and more, sports betting will also help to keep more dollars in-state and will provide another critical revenue source for public education without raising taxes on families and small businesses.”
In addition to placing wagers at Caesars Sportsbook’s main ticket counter on the casino’s first level, sports fans can enjoy an unmatched betting experience using 14 self-service betting kiosks located throughout the casino.
“Today’s announcement represents one of several major investments being made in South Baltimore,” said Mayor Scott. “The sportsbook facility at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore will complement the emerging redevelopment of Warner Street into the City’s next great entertainment destination.
“With Topgolf already under construction and the groundbreaking for Paramount coming soon, this area will host hundreds of additional jobs for our residents and provide space for businesses that will expand and diversify our tax base, while creating synergies with the stadium events and connecting to new parks and trails lining the Middle Branch.”
