Disclaimer: Caesars online sportsbook is not yet live in Arizona. This review is speculative based on what we know so far and will be updated when the sportsbook launches here.
Caesars Sportsbook is a good option for Arizona bettors seeking a high-quality sportsbook for both online and in-person betting. The Caesars sports betting app is a quality offering, and the retail sportsbook will be located at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
This page will go over what Caesars offers its sportsbook customers. It starts with a welcome bonus for new customers worth up to $500, and continues with great promotions and a variety of bets with solid odds. We’ll also take a look at the sportsbook app itself, where you can get it and its strengths and weaknesses.
Caesars offers new users a risk-free bet. If your first wager loses, you’ll get a free bet back equal to the amount of your losing wager, up to $500. To qualify, enter the Caesars Arizona bonus code on the second page during the sign-up process.
|Arizona Sportsbook||Caesars Sportsbook Arizona|
|Caesars Arizona Bonus Code||TBD|
|Risk Free Bet||Up to $500|
|Online Since||2021 in Arizona|
|Last Updated||July 2021|
After entering the bonus code, just place a bet at Caesars Arizona Sportsbook. If your bet loses, Caesars will add a free bet of equal value to your account, maxing out at $500. You will have seven days to use the bet before it expires.
For your first bet to qualify for the risk-free offer, it has to settle within seven days, so don’t bet on anything too far in the future.
As for the free bet, if it wins you get only the winnings from it, not the value of the wager itself. For instance, if you had a $50 free bet and placed it on a game with +200 odds and won, Caesars would add $100 to your sportsbook account, not $150.
If your first bet wins, you collect your winnings just like you normally would and nothing else changes. The risk-free offer does not transfer to later bets.
We consider this to be an above-average sportsbook welcome bonus. You’ll find that a lot of Arizona sportsbooks have risk-free first bet offers, but many of them restrict what types of bets qualify for your first bet and your free bet. The fact that Caesars does not is what puts it a step ahead of many other offers.
Yes, Caesars is one of the most trusted names in the gambling industry, and that trust should extend to its sportsbook. In addition, the Arizona Department of Gaming licenses all legal sportsbooks in the state.
In order to legally bet on sports with Caesars or any other sportsbook in the Grand Canyon State, you must be 21 or older, and you also must be within Arizona state lines. When using the Caesars app or website, geolocation software will verify your location. If you aren’t in the state, you won’t be able to bet.
To get signed up with Caesars, all you have to do is fire up the app or open the Caesars website. Once you’ve done that, just click on the “Sign Up” header in the upper right corner and enter the following details:
On the second page of the registration form is where you’ll enter the promo code to claim your risk-free bet. You also need to create a password and confirm that you are at least 21 years old, that everything you entered is accurate and that you’ve read the terms and conditions. From start to finish, it should take no longer than a minute or two.
The Caesars Sportsbook app is available for Apple and Android devices. To get it on your phone or tablet, head to the Caesars Sportsbook website, where you’ll see buttons to download both versions of the app. Click the appropriate button for your device and follow the prompts from there to download and install the app.
Keep in mind that while the Caesars app is great, you also can use the dedicated website for placing and tracking bets as well as for managing your account.
There is a scrolling banner at the top of the Caesars app that shows some of the current promotions, but to see all your options, simply click on the “Promotions” link. One thing you’ll notice is that the promotions at Caesars are distinct from what you’ll find at many other online sportsbooks.
Most of the time you do not need to opt in to Caesars Sportsbook promotions. Instead, many of the bonus offers require you to wager a certain amount on a specific game to qualify. Be sure to pay close attention to the type of bet you need to place. Sometimes the promotion requires a moneyline wager, while other times it is a spread bet.
A lot of the time you do need to get your bets right to earn rewards at Caesars. Some sportsbooks give out free bets when your wagers lose, particularly when it comes to parlays. Many, if not most, of the promos at Caesars only reward you if your bet wins. In addition, though, Caesars still has a handful of promotions that don’t require having to bet correctly.
That depends on what you consider cheap. Many of its promotions require bets of $50 to $100. However, Caesars has gotten better at offering more bonuses with lower thresholds for entry. In fact, we’ve been seeing more promotions that base your reward on how much you wager. This allows smaller bettors to enjoy the promotions, as well.
If you’re trying to decide whether to give Caesars AZ a try, here are three reasons you might end up liking it.
While there is quite a bit to like about Caesars, it also has some areas where it could stand to improve.
You can place all the typical sports wagers at Caesars as you can at any other reputable sportsbook. Here is a look at how odds will appear on the Caesars app as well as how each wager works.
|Moneyline||Puck line||Total goals|
|Arizona Coyotes||-160||-1.5 (+160)||Over 6.0 (-105)|
|Colorado Avalanche||+140||+1.5 (-180)||Under 6.0 (-115)|
To win a moneyline bet, you simply have to pick the team that will win. The biggest thing to remember is that negative numbers denote which team is favored, and positive numbers indicate underdogs.
In this example, you would need to bet $160 on Arizona to win $100 in profit on a correct bet. If you were to bet on the Avalanche, a winning $100 bet would pay out $140.
You’ll see spread bets have multiple names. In hockey, such a wager is called the puck line. In baseball it’s the run line, and basketball and football use point spread bets. In all cases, if you bet on the favorite, that team must win by more than the spread. Underdogs, meanwhile, must avoid losing by more than the spread.
As puck lines are almost always set at 1.5 goals, the odds on either side will vary more than for football and basketball spread bets. In the example above, if the Coyotes end up winning by at least two goals, a $100 bet would pay out $160.
When placing a total bet, you must select whether you think the teams will combine to score more or fewer total goals than the line the sportsbook has set. The line will often end in .5, making a push impossible, but not always. In this example, it doesn’t matter if you bet on over or under, if the final score was Arizona 4-2, all totals bets would be refunded.
When you click on an individual game listing, you’ll see all the wagers you can place on that game, including prop bets. Player props are wagers on individual player stats during the game, such as goals or assists in the case of hockey or touchdowns, yards and receptions in football. You also will find team and game props such as betting on both teams to score, the margin of victory or if there will be overtime.
Parlays allow you to combine two or more bets as a single wager at better odds. To win, you must get all your choices right. Teasers are similar, but are only for spread bets, and you can move the line for each of the games in your favor. Round robins, meanwhile, combine multiple bets, but you can miss one of your picks and still win some money.
Futures bets are wagers on season-long outcomes and what will happen in the playoffs. You could, for instance, place a futures bet on the Coyotes to raise the Stanley Cup at season’s end. Sportsbook odds will become available before the season starts and remain active from there.
Then there is live betting, which refers to any betting you do on a game that is already taking place. You can find all live betting options at Caesars by selecting the “InPlay” header. For example, you can bet on what will happen on the next pitch in a baseball game, the next play in a football game or the next hole during a golf tournament.
Yes, you can bet on all Arizona Diamondbacks games as well as all other Major League Baseball contests. Your options will include all of the bets we discussed above, as well as some that are specific to baseball:
In addition to the D-backs and Coyotes, you also can bet on the Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury on the Caesars app. And since betting on in-state college teams is legal, you’ll also find wagers on Arizona State, Arizona, Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona.

Caesars and the Arizona Diamondbacks are partnering to open a retail sportsbook at Chase Field. Once it is open, you should be able to make deposits and withdrawals at it in person.
Your best option for getting help is by clicking on the support tab on the Caesars website or app. You can start by clicking “online help,” which will open a separate window with a variety of topic headers as well as a search bar for answering your questions.
If that doesn’t work, you can choose the live chat, email ([email protected]) or phone (855-754-1200) options from the support menu.
If you want to cut yourself off from Caesars, click on the responsible gambling tab and find a link that opens up a form. After filling out the form and submitting it to Caesars, you will not be able to wager anymore.
If you decide you don’t want to be completely excluded, you can instead set limits, which you can do in your account settings. You can limit your time on the app, how much you can deposit and how much you can wager.

You will be able to as soon as the retail sportsbook opens at Chase Field. The plan is for Caesars and the Diamondbacks to revamp a sports bar at the stadium and open the sportsbook in its place.
The bar in question is currently only open on D-backs game nights, but will be open year-round. There is a chance Caesars could open a temporary sportsbook at Chase Field until the permanent one is ready, but there is no definitive word on whether that will happen.
Caesars is unquestionably among a small handful of premier sportsbooks in the state. Many bettors end up having multiple sportsbook accounts — a primary one and a few secondary ones. Caesars is the type of sportsbook that you may want to consider for your primary account. And if you only plan on having one account, it should be in the running for that distinction.
