Caesars Entertainment recently announced the launch of Caesars Racebook, its horse racing app in conjunction with its dedicated online website, in Illinois which now expands the company’s racebook to 21 states.

Caesars Racebook Joins the Crowd

There is no shortage of online horse race betting sites in Illinois as the crowded field includes NYRA Bets, 1/ST Racing, AmWager, DRF Horse Racing, FanDuel Racing, TVG, Twinspires, and now Caesars Racebook. Noticeably absent from the field are two national racebooks, BetMGM Horse Racing and DK Horse, both of which may eventually join the horse racing competition in the Prairie State.

Like many of its competitors, the Caesars Racebook app is separate from the Caesars Sportsbook app, but both are equipped for Android and iOS devices. Those who prefer the big screen of their computer monitors also have that option available in the form of a Caesars Racebook website.

The Perks

The signup bonus being offered is a 100% matching bonus of up to $200 and the highly-regarded Caesars Rewards program is automatically activated with each wager whereby one point is awarded for every $3 bet on any horse racing event.

But redeeming Caesars Rewards points in the form of digital compensation is not the only way to utilize these loyalty incentives. Caesars Entertainment owns three casinos in Illinois, including the Grand Victoria Casino Elgin, Harrah’s Joliet, and Harrah’s Metropolis.

All those properties accept Caesars Rewards, which can be used for anything from free or reduced prices on hotel stays, dining in one of the properties’ many restaurants, or tickets to live shows and events to name but a few of the many options.

Funding Caesars Racebook accounts is easy. According to the Caesars website, a deposit can be made in the following ways:

  • ACH Bank Transfer
  • Credit/Debit Cards (Visa/Mastercard/Discover)
  • Green Dot MoneyPak
  • PayNearMe
  • Apple Pay
  • Withdrawal by Check

Partnership With NYRA Bets

The Caesars Racebook works in partnership with NYRA Bets and uses many of their platform amenities, including its interface, race replays, handicapping predictions, weather conditions, etc. The partnership was announced two years ago and has been working well for both parties.

Dan Shapiro, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Caesars Digital, said of the rollout with NTRA Bets, “Following our successful rollout of Caesars Sportsbook, we’re delighted to launch Caesars Racebook in partnership with NYRA Bets.

“NYRA conducts world-class horse racing and NYRA Bets has access to the best horse racing content from around the world, including from Caesars-operated racetracks. We’re proud to support the horse racing industry while introducing the new Caesars Racebook app and Caesars Rewards to horse racing bettors.”

NYRA President & CEO, Dave O’Rourke, was equally complimentary about his company’s new betting partner and the collaboration between the two.

“NYRA considers it a core responsibility to grow the sport by increasing consumer access to world-class horse racing both in New York and around the country. Pairing the world-renowned Caesars brand with the rapidly growing NYRA Bets wagering platform is an ideal way to launch Caesars Racebook, which will soon deliver all the NYRA Bets tools and advantages to the Caesars customer base,” said O’Rourke.
