Who doesn’t know Caesars Entertainment?
The Caesars Entertainment we all know and love has signed a multi-year partnership with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which means that Caesars Sportsbook will be the NBA team’s Official Sports Betting Partner.
Caesars Entertainment, which will apparently also be named Official Casino Partner, means that plans that are currently awaiting approval are included to launch a ‘best-in-class’ retail sportsbook at the well-known Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, which is the home stadium of the NBA team also loyally known by their fans as ‘the Cavs.’
Construction on this new and monumental project is expected to start sooner than later.
Caesars Entertainment, Inc., formerly known as Eldorado Resorts, Inc., is an all-too-familiar US hotel and casino entertainment company, founded and based in Reno, Nevada. Caesars Entertainment now operates more than 50 properties after Eldorado Resorts took ownership of Caesars Entertainment Corporation. After this shift took place, the company as a whole changed its name to Caesars Entertainment on July 20, 2020.
These two giants have come together to create the biggest and the most diverse collection of destinations across the United States.
Owning many of the most prestigious gaming brands in the world, including Tropicana®, Caesars Palace®, Horseshoe®, Harrah’s®, Silver Legacy®, Eldorado®, and Circus Circus® Reno, Caesars Entertainment is considered the worldwide leader in both hospitality and gaming.

Chris Holdren, Co-President of Caesars Digital mentioned that they are more than ready to welcome all Ohio sports fans into the Caesars Sportsbook realm and show them what the Empire has to offer. Simultaneously, Caesars will also be making history by having their second sportsbook in an official NBA area.
According to Holdren, it all comes from long-standing, strong roots the company has forged with Scioto Downs in Columbus, which Caesars has built on to now establish another successful relationship with the Cavaliers.
Aiming for an end-of-year opening in Ohio, the retail sportsbook will be fully equipped with windows for cash wagering as well as ready-made hopsitality and VIP experiences for Caesars Rewards fans and dedicated members. There will also be on-site activations year-round, and the site will be open for both Caesars Rewards Members and non members for wagering and other events.

Once online sports betting goes live in Ohio, fans will be able to download the famous and highly-acclaimed Caesars Sportsbook app to wager in any location in the state where they please, which is a massive plus for the sportsbook franchise.
There are some legendary basketball players who have shined brightly for the Cavs over the years.They include LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal.
Although there is still no official date been set for the launch of online and mobile sports betting in the state of Ohio, the necessary legislation has been officially passed by the authorities and sportsbooks getting ready to put their best foot forward by the end of this year.
