Arizona Diamondbacks Launch Sportsbook with Caesars
Caesars Entertainment has partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks to launch mobile sports betting in Arizona and build a first-class sportsbook and bar concept on the plaza adjacent to the team’s home, Chase Field.
“We went through a thorough process to identify the ideal partner that would bring experience and the strongest of reputations in legalized gaming,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “Caesars is considered the cream of the crop and aligns with our philosophy when it comes to professionalism, brand presentation, and customer treatment and brings its best in class William Hill mobile sports book product and retail sports betting expertise. Equally important, we went through our strong due diligence to find the industry leader in the education and execution of responsible gaming.”
The deal simultaneously grants Caesars Entertainment mobile sports betting market access and exclusive sponsorship in sports betting and daily fantasy sports for the D-backs. In tandem, Caesars also finalized a multi-year agreement with Major League Baseball (MLB) to become an Authorized Gaming Operator of the league.
“We have long enjoyed successful gaming operations in Arizona and are delighted to expand into sports betting alongside the Arizona Diamondbacks,” said Tom Reeg, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. “Together, we have the opportunity to create new ways for baseball fans to engage with the game both in-person near the ballpark and online anywhere in Arizona. Our ability to tie those into our Caesars Rewards network will create an unbeatable experience for any sports fan.”
