With the Belmont Stakes less than two weeks away, horse racing fans in two new states can check out more opportunities to wager on that event and more. Caesars Racebook has expanded its reach in the US.
On Wednesday, Caesars announced that it is now taking wagers through the iOS app in both Florida and Ohio. Although the Belmont is the next premier event on the calendar, app users do not have to wait until then to try it out.
Caesars Racebook now live in new states
For the time being, the wait continues for owners of Android devices. However, those horse racing bettors can access the book on desktops or using a mobile browser. Caesars Racebook is a collaboration with NYRA Bets, the pari-mutuel wagering platform of the New York Racing Association.
With that access, Caesars offers markets on races from over 250 tracks around the world. That menu includes some of the most prestigious tracks operating today, like:
Saratoga Race Course
Floridians and Ohioans can now join the contingent of horse bettors that have signed up to check out the lines at Caesars. Doing so could mean some bonus funds for new app users.
Caesars offers deposit match, other rewards
Other than the racing content and the wide array of lines, the best part of betting on horse races with Caesars is the rewards you can take advantage of. For starters, Caesars offers new racebook app users a dollar-for-dollar match of their first deposits up to $500.
Do note that the matching funds are site credit, not actual cash. In order to withdraw any of that value as real money, you’ll have to successfully wager it within the app first. There are additional benefits too.
Caesars Racebook users can also use their activity to build their Caesars Rewards account balances. Perks of that program include free bets plus myriad ways to spend points at Caesars’ physical casinos around the world.
The Belmont could be a great time to use those matching funds on June 11. With this app, bettors in Florida and Ohio do not have to travel to New York to place those bets.
