Caesars Entertainment Corporation today announced its plans to introduce sports betting into its Atlantic City, Gulf Coast and Tunica properties. The introduction of sports betting in these jurisdictions is the first step in Caesars Entertainment's plan to expand its sports betting offering following the Supreme Court's landmark PASPA ruling and the subsequent legalization of sports betting in New Jersey and Mississippi.
Over the course of the next nine months, Caesars Entertainment will be building out the facilities to create the same world-class sports betting experiences currently available at its properties in Nevada. Caesars Entertainment plans to quickly introduce mobile sports betting throughout New Jersey and on property in Mississippi on the Caesars Casino & Sports mobile app. This will expand Caesars' existing online poker and online casino offerings in New Jersey. Caesars plans to introduce the mobile application in additional states when and if it becomes legal and economically attractive for Caesars to do so.
