Caesars Entertainment Enters Puerto Rico’s Sports Betting Industry


In a new development for sports gambling in Puerto Rico, the internationally known app Caesars Entertainment has introduced its popular online sports betting service to the island.

The online sportsbook will be operated alongside the land-based Caesars Sportsbook, which opened in RI at Casino Metro in December 2022.

The introduction of their advanced mobile betting app enables RI residents to experience the excitement of sports gambling easily, significantly enhancing Puerto Rico’s online sports betting opportunities.

This pioneering move aligns seamlessly with Caesars’ land-based sportsbook, crafting a vision of the future where digital and physical betting spheres intersect.

Casino Metro and Caesars Sportsbook RI

Caesars Sportsbook’s mobile betting application has always been at the forefront of the sports gambling industry.

Offering users the opportunity to venture into online betting right from their devices isn’t something new. But their innovative platform, primarily created for residents of Puerto Rico, is planned to expand its user base to non-residents visiting the beautiful island soon.

The application and desktop versions have the advantage of being integrated with the Caesars Rewards loyalty program, transforming every bet into tier credits that unlock exclusive experiences at Caesars Entertainment destinations.

At the same time, the land-based Caesars Sportsbook at Casino Metro continues to thrive, recently renamed ‘MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook.’

This strategy guarantees the flexibility of online betting without compromising the engaging conditions offered by a physical sportsbook.

The Launch of Caesars Sportsbook

Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, celebrated the mobile sports betting platform. He emphasized this as a significant improvement to the excellent service MetroBets offers.

Hession underscored the platform’s capacity to provide an unparalleled betting experience to patrons in Puerto Rico. He also expressed his gratitude to the Puerto Rico Gaming Commission and partners for their support.

Echoing these opinions, Ismael Vega, General Manager of Casino Metro, highlighted the impact of bringing MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook directly to users’ devices. The app, known for its user-focused design, encourages responsible betting across the island, improving the overall MetroBets experience.

Developing and Diversifying Sports Betting in Puerto Rico

Caesars Entertainment’s entry into Puerto Rico’s sports betting market aligns with the strategies of other industry giants. For example, BetMGM debuted in Rhode Island by partnering with Casino del Mar at La Concha Resort. Also, newcomer Ballers Sportsbook plans to launch its RI operations in partnership with Sportradar.

It looks like the island will experience even more sports betting expansions soon. DraftKings, partnering with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, is planning to launch its mobile operation in Puerto Rico. To add, it will unveil a retail operation at the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino. These developments reaffirm Puerto Rico’s reputation as a hub for sports betting.caesars nfl streaming

Guaranteeing a Safe Betting Environment

Caesars Entertainment emphasizes the importance of player safety and well-being. As Caesars Sportsbook widens its operations into new territories, the company pledges to educate its customers about responsible gambling.

The app has employed several tools. This includes Deposit Limits, Spend Limits, Daily Time Limits, and Cool Off Time Limits. These tools assist customers in responsible betting.

Furthermore, Caesars supports a leading universal exclusion policy that applies to everyone in a state. On top of that, there is a self-exclusion list in areas where Caesars operates. The firm enforces a strict 21+ gaming policy, limiting its services to individuals aged 21 and above.

Casino Metro is Caesars’ partner in Puerto Rico, where they also have the land-based ‘MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook.’

The launch has effectively doubled Puerto Rico’s online sports betting options and brought the convenience of mobile betting to the island’s citizens.

Caesars has multiple RG tools in place for customers, including Deposit Limits, Spend Limits, Daily Time Limits, and Cool Off Time Limits.

The app and land-based sportsbook are integrated, offering customers the flexibility to enjoy the convenience of digital betting, while still having access to the physical sportsbook experience.
