Caesars Entertainment has enhanced its presence in the sports betting market in Puerto Rico by launching its mobile sportsbook app. 

The firm first entered the US territory last December, when it opened the Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro. Now it has elevated its offering by allowing eligible players to download and sign up for the Caesars Sportsbook app which allows those physically located on the island to bet on sports. 

“The launch of our mobile sports wagering platform is an excellent complement to the elevated experience we’ve provided customers at MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro,” said Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital. 

“We’d like to thank our partners and the Puerto Rico Gaming Commission for making our sportsbook available throughout all of Puerto Rico and we’re confident customers will enjoy an experience they can’t find anywhere else.”

Those who sign up for the Caesars Sportsbook app must do so physically at Casino Metro as per the regulations of mobile sports wagering in the territory. 

When users sign up, they will be able to receive a $50 bonus bet when they make their first bet of $50 or more. Users will be offered an array of sports betting products including in-play and real-time play-by-play options and same-game parlays on their favorite sports. 

“The launch of this app brings our customers MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook in the palm of their hands,” said Ismael Vega, General Manager of Casino Metro. “The user-friendly app allows customers to bet responsibly from any corner of the island, elevating the experience we offer with MetroBets. 

“Since the grand opening of MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro, we’ve experienced an exciting uptick in customers.”

Caesars has followed BetMGM as one of the first major US operators to offer mobile sports wagering in Puerto Rico, after building its retail presence over the last seven months. 

Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro boasts three betting windows, 14 self-service kiosks, over 25 LED TVs and an odds board. 

The firm has notified customers that they will be able to make cash deposits and withdrawals for their Caesars Sportsbook mobile app accounts at the Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro.
