Sportsbook overview

Sportsbook: Caesars
Legal in California: No
Partner in California: N/A
Payment methods:

A major player in the brick-and-mortar sportsbook industry long before online sports betting was legalized in the United States, Caesars Sportsbook is as reputable as they come. Their April 2021 acquisition of William Hill Sportsbook has only made their brand and product stronger, as they continue to venture into new states legalizing sports betting.

Long considered the golden goose of states legalizing sports betting, California remains hopeful that its nearly 40 million residents will be next up in online sports betting becoming legal. When that day does finally come, Caesars Sportsbook California will surely be an early player in The Golden State, especially given their proximity to their retail Las Vegas sportsbooks.

Let’s take a look at what to expect when that day arrives.

Is Caesars Sportsbook live in California?

No, Caesars Sportsbook is not yet live in California, as sports betting legislation has yet to pass in the state. There were two bills, Prop 26 and Prop 27, that failed to pass the 50% “Yes” threshold in the November 2022 vote.

The next possible vote on sports betting bills would be in November 2024, making 2025 the earliest the state could see some form of sports betting. Whether that be at brick-and-mortar (retail) locations, online, or a mix of both, California’s many tribal casinos will certainly be involved.

Regardless, when California sports betting does eventually come to fruition, expect Caesars Sportsbook to be in the mix for the licenses that the state issues.

What type of welcome promo will Caesars offer when they go live?

When sports betting becomes legal in California, it's anticipated that Caesars will introduce a compelling promotional offer similar to those available in other states. 
Specifically, if your first cash bet does not win, Caesars will refund it as a Bonus Bet, up to a maximum of $1,000. To be eligible, bettors must be over 21, located in a state where sports betting is legal, and have opened a new Caesars Sportsbook account during the promotion period. 
This offer aims to encourage new participants by offering a kind of safety net for their initial wager. This promotion underscores Caesars' commitment to providing value and support to its patrons, making the entry into sports betting more appealing and less risky for first-time bettors.

When will the Caesars promo reward reach my account?

For eligible participants who place a qualifying bet and lose, Caesars credits the bonus bet to the player's account within two business days. It's important to monitor this timeframe for the credit, and if it takes longer than expected, reaching out to customer support is advisable to check on the status of the promotional offer.

Conditions for the Caesars bonus in other states

Using Caesars' primary welcome bonus in other states as an example, there are a few conditions that bettors should be aware of before claiming it.

  • If your first real cash bet results in a loss, you will be reimbursed with a Bonus Bet equal to the amount you wagered, up to a limit of $1,000.
  • Participants must register and make their initial real money bet within 30 days of account creation to be eligible for the Bonus Bet offer.
  • The Bonus Bet will be added to your account within two business days after your losing wager has been officially settled by Caesars.
  • Each Bonus Bet is single-use and its value is not included in any winnings it generates.
  • There is a maximum limit of one $1,000 Bonus Bet per participant in this promotion.
  • Only your first wager settled as a loss qualifies for this promotion; subsequent bets are ineligible.
  • Wagers placed on Super Boost Markets, Round Robins, using Bonus Bets, Profit Boosts, or where Profit Boost Tokens are applied do not qualify for this promotion.
  • The Bonus Bet must be utilized within fourteen days from the date it was issued, or it will expire and be removed from the account.

What do I do if the Caesars California bonus is not working?

If you're encountering issues with the Caesars CA bonus not working properly, there are several technical steps you can consider to remedy the situation. 

First and foremost, try refreshing the webpage as this can often resolve minor glitches that may be preventing the bonus from appearing or functioning correctly. If this does not solve the issue, consider clearing your browser's cache and cookies, which can remove outdated or corrupt data that might be interfering with the website's performance.

If the problem persists, ensure your internet connection is stable and strong, as connectivity issues can also lead to difficulties in loading or accessing promotions. Another approach is to try accessing your account and the promotion using a different browser or device to see if the problem may be related to a specific technical compatibility issue.

Should these steps not resolve the issue, it's advisable to contact Caesars' customer support directly. They can provide further assistance and potentially troubleshoot the problem from their end. The customer support team is well-equipped to handle such queries and can offer specific solutions, whether it involves account issues or problems pertaining to the promotion itself.

Different kinds of wagers on Caesars Sportsbook

It’s critical when you start your sports betting journey, whether it be at Caesars Sportsbook California or elsewhere, that you know all the bet types at your disposal. Let’s dive into a few different kinds.

  • Moneyline: When you place a moneyline bet, you are simply choosing which team or player will win a matchup. The team with a negative (-) next to their name is expected by the sportsbook to win (favorite), while the team with the positive (+) sign is expected to lose (underdog).
  • Totals: More commonly referred to as the “over/under,” this is a bet on the combined score of a game. Betting the “over” would be a bet on the teams combining to score more than the posted total, with the under being a bet on them combining to score less than the total.
  • Same-game parlays: A parlay is a bet involving two or more legs, all of which must win for the bet to be a winner. As the name implies, a same-game parlay is a parlay with all legs or linked bets being in the same game. This could involve anything from moneyline bets to totals to player or team props.
  • Futures: A future bet is a wager that is placed either before a season starts, or during it, for a result that will be established when the season concludes. Betting on who will win the Heisman Trophy in college football mid-season is one example.

Best sports leagues you will be able to bet on using Caesars California

  • Football: The NFL and college football will be covered in full at Caesars California, featuring all of the California teams, including the Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, USC Trojans (if California sports betting legislation allows), and many more. Smaller niche leagues, such as the USFL and XFL, will also be available.
  • Basketball: The NBA and college basketball will be available from day one of California sports betting, and Ceasars California will feature both. International FIBA basketball, as well as the NBA Summer League, will also be featured for betting on the California gambling site. Be on the lookout for California’s best teams, including the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, and UCLA Bruins.
  • Hockey: The NHL will be the primary hockey league covered at Caesars California, with bettors able to bet on the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks out of the gates.
  • Soccer: Major League Soccer (MLS) will be available to bet at Caesars California when it launches, as the league has seen an explosion in growth in recent years. California is home to three teams, with the LA Galaxy, Los Angeles Football Club, and San Jose Earthquake calling The Golden State home. International leagues such as La Liga, English Premier League, and many more will be available for betting as well.
