Saratoga Race Course and Ceasars Details Of Partnership With NYRA

While free bets are an attractive option for Caesars Rewards members, there are also several offline experiences that rewards points within the program can give you access to. The list of those experiences just grew with a new partnership between Caesars and the NYRA.

The New York Racing Association and Caesars have linked up to offer new perks to rewards members and horse racing fans alike. Most notably, your online sports bets can now lead to the best seats at the track in NY.

Details of the new Caesars-NYRA partnership

Caesars recently became a new official sports betting marketing partner of the NYRA. The gambling company is now the title sponsor of the NYRA Turf Triple Series. That series will be in its fourth year in 2022, showcasing the best 3-year-old turf runners across the country.

Racing fans at both Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course will have access to sportsbook promos. Also, at both tracks, Caesars Rewards members will get access to VIP hospitality assets. That includes premium seating at Saratoga.

“This partnership with NYRA will amplify the Caesars Sportsbook brand to NYRA Bets customers and at Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course, two of the most important venues in the sport,” said Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital, in a press release. “We couldn’t be more excited for this partnership to reach horse racing fans and look forward to our involvement with NYRA’s premier thoroughbred racing.”

Premium seating at Saratoga is far from the only experience that Caesars Rewards members have access to. With the online sportsbook now taking bets in NY, it’s easier to build those rewards points.

How to turn online sports bets into experiences

It’s pretty simple. For every $5 you stand to profit from betting on sporting events in the app, you get a reward credit and a tiered credit. For example, if you bet $10 at +200 odds (putting you in a position to profit $20), you would get four reward credits and four-tier credits. You get those regardless of whether you win the bet.

There is a cap of 10X the wager amount, though. Thus, if you put that same $10 down at +2000 odds, you’d still only get 100 reward credits and 100 tier credits even though your potential profit from your wager is actually $200.

Among your redemption options besides the Saratoga seating are comped dining and show tickets at Caesars properties, Wyndham hotel stays, and entries into World Series of Poker circuit events. The most important thing to remember with this program is that gambling just to chase these rewards is rarely a smart play.

If your budget allows for the play anyway, then you might as well get rewarded for it, though. Starting this summer, the VIP treatment at Belmont and Saratoga will be among those rewards.
