An exciting new era of sports betting and poker has begun this week with the grand opening of spectacular spaces at two Louisiana casinos. Part of Caesars Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) (“Caesars”), Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino and Horseshoe Bossier City all made history by opening modern Caesars Sportsbook locations at their resorts. In addition, Harrah made her debut in the largest poker room in Louisiana with the grand opening of the new World Series of Poker Room.

“This has been a special week for Caesars and our longstanding commitment to Louisiana,” said Dan Real, regional president of Caesars Entertainment. The opening of world-class Caesars Sportsbook locations and a new World Series of Poker® room adds to the legacy built by Harrah’s New Orleans and Horseshoe Bossier City in the Gulf Coast region. We are ready to welcome sports fans into our sportsbooks, and we are proud to open the largest poker room in Louisiana, true to the WSOP brand and what it stands for.”

To celebrate these openings, Caesar held two festive events inside Harrah and Horseshoe this week, each featuring a ribbon cutting and a first ceremonial bet.

In New Orleans, Archie and Cooper Manning joined Pro Football Hall of Famer, New Orleans Saint Rickey Jackson, local VIPs, and Saints Superfan Leroy Mitchell Jr. , known as “Whistle Monsta”, to open the new Sports and Poker Room. Jackson placed his first ceremonial bet with his $1,000 Saints bet to win the Super Bowl by a margin of 40/1 and any potential winnings would benefit the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). In Bossier, Caesars Sportsbook opened in style with Mayor Tommy Chandler cutting the ribbon before a massive $200,000 ceremonial bet, placed by a VIP and well-known guest.

Harrah’s New Orleans now houses a 5,700-square-foot sportsbook with four betting windows, 12 self-service betting booths, a 147-foot video screen, and a modern, high-powered sound system next to the 5000-square-foot World Series of Poker with 20 poker tables. The openings mark another stage in the ongoing $325 million transformation from Harrah’s New Orleans to Caesars New Orleans, which is expected to be completed by 2024.

The new Caesars Sportsbook from Horseshoe Bossier City cements its position as the premier recreational destination in northwest Louisiana. The 6,900-square-foot space features three betting windows, 15 self-service betting booths, over 94 televisions with the latest high-powered audio system, a VIP viewing section, and a giant bar.

“These stunning editorials are a testament to Louisiana residents, our team members, and guests visiting these historic resorts,” said Eric Hesion, president of Caesars Digital. “We truly feel that we are part of the local team in Louisiana, and we are proud of our fantastic customer service and sports fans in the state. From our Caesars Sportsbook app to our retail sportsbooks and now our elevated World Series of Poker Room, we are seizing the opportunity to provide guests with even more unforgettable experiences “.

Caesars remains committed to investing hundreds of millions of dollars to provide unparalleled sports and leisure experiences throughout Louisiana. This commitment will see the Isle of Capri Lake Charles transform into Horseshoe Lake Charles, which will reopen with the new Caesars Sportsbook location in the coming months.

In addition to personal betting in these characteristics, the easy-to-navigate Caesars Sportsbook app features enhanced performance with a focus on speed, ease of use, and intuitive features to make getting a bet easier than ever. Bettors can take advantage of additional ways to deposit money, faster payouts, live scoreboards, expanded betting options while playing, as well as same-game offers, new withdrawal functions, and more ways to bet with thousands of additional markets.
