Harrah’s Las Vegas unveiled a newly-renovated Caesars Race and Sportsbook just in time for football season. The book features betting kiosks, LED TVs lining the walls, customizable seating, and mobile food ordering.

The renovation was a key step toward Harrah’s matching the amenities of other Caesars properties on the Las Vegas Strip.

Harrah’s Las Vegas Levels Up Sportsbook On Property

After nearly six weeks of renovation, the new Caesars Race and Sportsbook is now open at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

With almost 800 square feet of LED TV walls, 96 tables and chairs, two betting kiosks, and the Caesars Eats mobile app, the book is ready for the influx of customers during NFL season.

Dan Walsh, SVP and General Manager of Harrah’s Las Vegas, said the goal of the renovation was to replicate what you do at your house and to provide the comfort of watching sports in your home.

“Feedback from some of the (sports betting) demographic is that people want to have more flexibility and space and a more communal gathering area. You can reconfigure the furniture how you want depending on whether you come with a group of four, six, eight, etc. Our book was below average in terms of its aesthetics but we had to raise our game to still be the best on the Strip.”

One of the new features is the integration of Caesars Eats, a mobile food ordering platform. Sports bettors can sit down, open the Caesars Eats app, and order food from restaurants like Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse or Bobby Flay’s Burgers.

Customers can get the food brought directly to them or choose to go pick it up.

Caesars Sportsbook is the only sportsbook integrated with Caesars Rewards, and you earn whether or not your bet wins or loses. Bettors earn one Reward Credit for every $5 of potential profit on bets.

Pro Football Hall Of Famer Places Ceremonial First Bet

To kick off the opening, Jonathan Ogden, pro football Hall of Famer and former offensive tackle for the Baltimore Ravens cut the ribbon and placed the ceremonial first bet.

He took the Ravens at 20-1 to win the Super Bowl.

All proceeds will go to the Jonathan Ogden Foundation if that ticket cashes.

Odgen acknowledged that during his time in the NFL, the league had a completely different stance than they now do with sports betting.

He feels that the league partnering with sportsbooks like Caesars is a positive step forward.

It is long overdue. The league was missing out on revenue for themselves…and that’s something the NFL doesn’t do very often. It’s a win-win for everyone. The sportsbooks are happy with the partnerships, the NFL will do better, and the fans will be happier. The fans have been wondering why their team and their sportsbook have been fighting each other. So the NFL finally got off of its high horse and decided to make it work.”

As a local, he is excited to have a new spot to hang out with friends, watch the game, and place some bets.
