With the launch of legal sports betting in Kentucky just a day away, Caesars Entertainment has announced its Caesars Sportsbook app is available for registration.

All players have to do is download the Caesars Sportsbook app on iOS and Android or visit on a desktop to register. Eligible players can also take advantage of a special early deposit offer between Sept. 7 and Sept. 27.

Caesars is the fifth licensed online sportsbook to enter Kentucky and offer pre-registration, after:

  • BetMGM
  • Bet365
  • DraftKings
  • FanDuel

Multiple online sportsbooks recently received the green light from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission to accept registrations on Aug. 28. However, Kentuckians must wait until Sept. 28 to place their first real money online bets.

Eric Hession, president of Caesars Digital, said in the company’s news release:

“Launching Caesars Sportsbook for pre-registration in Kentucky is an exciting step as we prepare to bring customers in the Commonwealth a sports wagering experience that treats them like royalty this fall.”

Caesars opens Red Mile Gaming & Racing in Lexington

In addition to the Caesars Sportsbook app, Caesars previously announced plans for opening a retail sportsbook at Red Mile Gaming & Racing in Lexington.

The retail location is set to accept its first sports bets on Thursday. The company’s partnerships with both Red Mile and Keeneland further strengthen its commitment to horse racing and the expansion of the Caesars Racebook app.

Hession said:

“Whether in-person at our conveniently located sportsbook at Red Mile Gaming & Racing in Lexington that will take its first bets on September 7, or on mobile devices anywhere in the state from Pikeville to Paducah, Caesars Sportsbook will allow fans to engage with their favorite sports and teams through an array of wagering options.”
