This is the most common type of sportsbook wager for customers. Straight bets include point spreads, moneylines, and totals on a given event.
One of the "emperors" in the industry, Caesars Sportsbook Maryland will go live once legal Maryland online sports betting launches. Here's a look at the expected Caesars Maryland promo and more.
Caesars is not yet live in Maryland, but new bettors will want to pay attention as soon as it launches. That's because we expect that Caesars will offer a first bet up to $1,250 "on the house" for all new users. The way it will work is that bettors will receive 100% of the value of their first bet in free bet credits if it loses. It's worth noting that players who previously had a William Hill account will not be considered new bettors at Caesars Maryland.
Caesars will offer a number of promotions for bettors in Maryland. In addition to the Caesars Maryland promo code that provides up to $3,000 in free bets, promotions such as odds boosts, a free authentic NFL jersey for those who bet $100 on NFL games, same-game parlays, and referral bonuses are offered to all bettors. Major online sportsbooks have these but we like the diversity that Caesars provides.
When the final steps are taken to make online operations such as the Caesars MD betting site and app, residents of the state will be able to sign up for one of the best reward programs in the industry. By placing sports wagers, you can collect Caesars Rewards points. Bettors will earn one Tier Credit for every $5 of potential profit on each wager, up to a maximum of 10 times your stake. As you increase your total Tier Credits, you can progress through the six-tier reward system.
Benefits typically include various promos, such as a regular free bet and other free bets of increasing magnitude. Additionally, you may be able to redeem points for hotel benefits such as free nights and upgrades at a Caesars property. This is a feature that adds serious value to the Caesars betting experience.
To link your Maryland Caesars Sportsbook account to the Caesars Rewards program, you will need to do the following:
The Maryland Caesars Sportsbook Rewards Program will feature multiple tiers. For every $5 wager, you will earn a Tier Credit. As you earn more points, you will achieve a higher the status. Each tier, or level, comes with perks such as free bets, unique promos, birthday gifts and more.
Caesars is quickly becoming one of the hottest online sportsbook brands in the industry. It launched its online casino platform in 2013 in New Jersey and has waded into the sports betting scene in recent years. They also took over the William Hill sportsbook brand to help them increase their audience and provide one of the top welcome bonus offers in the industry. Caesars Sportsbook Maryland isn't yet live, but we expect that they'll be the next in a long line of successful sportsbooks that Caesars entertainment has launched over the last few years.
|✔️ Excellent Welcome Bonus||❌ No Notable Tournaments & Contests|
|✔️ Great Customer Support||❌ Average Loyalty Program|
|✔️ Sharp Website/App is Easy to Navigate|
|✔️ Great Profit & Odds Boosts|
Caesars is well established in the online and mobile betting industry, so it's no surprise that it has a full list of sports betting markets. Among the 18 sports available at Caesars sportsbook are baseball, basketball, football, hockey, golf and tennis, plus a number of international and smaller leagues within those sports. Lesser-bet sports like boxing, cricket, cycling and rugby are also available for bettors. We like the number of sports betting markets that players have at their disposal.

Maryland bettors will have endless betting options at Caesars Sportsbook. Professional sports teams such as the Baltimore Ravens, Washington Commanders, Baltimore Orioles, Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards will have plenty of markets and betting options in the state. If customers want to bet on college sports like the Maryland Terrapins or on March Madness, Maryland sportsbooks like Caesars will have them covered.
There are literally thousands of different bets a player can make on Caesars Maryland. With so many different betting markets, hundreds of games over the course of a season in each, and hundreds more different straight bets, futures, and props in each, bettors will have no shortage of options when they come to Caesars. Here are some of the more common types of bets they'll make.
This is the most common type of sportsbook wager for customers. Straight bets include point spreads, moneylines, and totals on a given event.
This is the expected combined number of points, goals or runs between two teams in a game. Totals are alternatively called over/under betting. Bettors can place wagers on the actual combined points being higher (betting the over) or lower (betting the under) than the total.
A moneyline wager is simply one where a bettor takes a winning side; the totals or point spreads do not matter. Each moneyline has a favorite and an underdog, with odds reflecting the team oddsmakers believe will win the game.
Parlay betting is a combination of multiple bets that create a new single bet with more lucrative odds. Though the reward is higher, the risk is too because all legs of the parlay must be successful for the bet to pay out.
A futures wager is one on an outcome occurring by the end of a season in a patricular sport. Examples include NFL MVP, NBA Finals winner or Masters champion.
Shorthand for proposition bets, a prop bet is on whether something will or won't happen within an individual game. Examples include first touchdown scorer, whether a player will hit a home run, or whether a run will be scored in the first inning. There are both player and team props.
Legal sports betting websites know that players have multiple online sportsbooks to choose from. It's why so many of them, including Caesars Maryland Sportsbook, provides unique features like odds boosts, a risk-free bet for new users, and other exciting perks and promotions. Here are some of our favorites that we expect will be available for Caesars Maryland.
Online sports betting doesn't end when the games begin. Live options are available for major sports markets from the start of a game until the final whistle, point or out.
We like the way Caesars formats these live betting markets, which we'll touch on in the user experience section of our review.
Cashing out a bet that hasn't yet finished is a great option for bettors who are nervous about a backdoor cover or simply want to place their money elsewhere. Caesars Sportsbook Maryland will give bettors that option over the course of an event. The amount a customer can cash out is dependent on the point in the game and how wide the margin is.
As a legal and fully licensed sports betting site, Caesars Maryland sportsbook has access to official league data that offshore operators can't use. This means they can calculate the odds of any bet on the fly and offer features like early cash outs.
Caesars is such an established brand that it can provide boosted odds, sometimes referred to as profit boosts, on a number of different markets. It's up there with some of the other big sportsbooks that we expect will be available in Maryland once the state's market goes live. These boosted odds are readily accessible and visible for bettors, so they won't need to dig to find the best ones for whatever they want to bet on.
Same-game parlays are available on certain markets. Right now, Caesars offers them for NFL betting, but we expect that they will expand those options to other events as the company grows. Same-game parlays are still relatively new, so this isn't all that surprising. We like that they have it available for the biggest markets.
The folks at Caesars want their players betting quickly, so they've made the sign-up process an easy one. Bettors will need to provide all the standard information they'd need to enter at any sportsbook. Here's what the process looks like:
Caesars is one of the most established brands in the sports betting industry, and thus the company has plenty of banking methods for both deposits and withdrawals. Here's what bettors will have at their disposal when they're ready to make a deposit or cash out.
The deposit process is simple for bettors. Among the methods they have to start their sports betting experience are credit or debit card, eCheck, online bank transfers, PayPal, Play+ Prepaid Cards, Skrill, PayNearMe, or cash at a land-based casino. This is a pretty full list of deposit methods; we're certain all bettors will be able to use at least one comfortably. Deposited funds can be wagered immediately with most of these methods. The depositing of funds is also an easy process, as all major sportsbooks want you to be able to put money in easily.
When bettors are ready to cash out their winnings, they can withdraw those funds easily. The same options that are available for depositing money are also available for withdrawing money. Caesars notes on the website and mobile Caesars betting app that funds will be made available within 72 hours, but in our experience it's usually much shorter than that. Caesars' withdrawal options are among the smoothest and quickest we've experienced in all our reviews.

The Caesars casino has plenty of different contests, but there really aren't all that many available within the sportsbook. Our hope is that changes as Caesars continues to expand its reach across different states (like Maryland). But for now there aren't free-to-play contests and tournaments. There are plenty of great features at Caesars, but this unfortunately is not one of them.
The Caesars loyalty program is split into four different tiers: Gold, platinum, diamond, and seven stars. Bettors earn credits based on how much real money they wager on games and for the potential profit earned on those bets. Moving up in tiers gives customers access to perks like free bets, entry to Caesars entertainment properties and much more. The rewards program can be a bit confusing, and it's not easily explained on the website and mobile app.
This sportsbook gives customers only what they need. Though Caesars is certainly a flashy brand and has invested quite a bit in sportsbook ads, once you've arrived at the desktop or mobile app you might be pleasantly surprised at the lack of frills.
Bet slips populate quickly, logos are placed next to teams, and promotions are easily accessible and explained in detail so bettors know what they stand to gain. We love the search bar function, whether bettors are looking for a market or have a question about Caesars. Easy to use. Competitive odds. Good promotions (with a promo code or without). Solid welcome bonus. All major markets covered. These are all reasons that users will love spending time at Caesars.
Bettors looking for a good mobile app betting experience are in luck with Caesars. The sportsbook app got a revamp when the company merged with William Hill. The result is an easy-to-navigate app that features all available markets sprawled across the top of the home page, live and upcoming events toward the bottom of the page, and a bet slip that populates in the middle of the screen.
Additionally, we're fans of the layout in individual markets when it comes to in-play betting. Not all Maryland sportsbook apps have gotten this right, but Caesars provides a great experience for live bets. Naturally the app is available for iOS and Android devices.
There are several reviews of the Caesars Sportsbook mobile app on the iOS App Store. The app is available to download for anyone, but will not be available in Maryland until online sports betting officially launches.
Android users have provided similar reviews of the Google Play Store version of the Caesars Sportsbook app. Here are some we found:
Within its responsible gambling page, Caesars Sportsbook Maryland notes in the paragraph about security that the sportsbook, mobile app, and casino (where applicable) adhere to a set of state rules and regulations. This is designed to promote a fair and legal betting atmosphere. This also means that bettors' account information and stored banking methods are safe and secure, though we always recommend that bettors create strong passwords, update them regularly and don't share them. It's important to stay as safe as possible, but know that Caesars is there for you, too.
Caesars entertainment as a whole runs a pretty tight ship, and the sportsbook is no different. Still, over the course of a betting lifespan, some issues might arise and that's when players can require assistance from a customer service staff.
Bettors at Caesars are in luck, with the sportsbook providing a 24/7 live chat, an email address, a phone number and an online help section that can answer general questions that don't require 1-on-1 conversations. It's a comprehensive list of customer support options that all bettors will find to their liking. Caesars checks all the boxes here.
Caesars Sportsbook Maryland wants bettors to have a good time when they come to the Caesars app and website. That is why the Responsible Gaming badge is posted clearly on the top right hand of the home page. Most sportsbooks tuck this info away at the bottom of the home page. Clicking on that badge brings players to a single page with myriad resources on how to have a safe, responsible gambling experience.
This page includes steps to set time and spending limits, self-exclusion, FAQ about problematic gambling and resources on how to get help. Our only complaint is that all the information is on one page, which can be hard to scroll and navigate through. Still, that page has everything bettors will need to have an enjoyable and safe experience at Caesars.
When Maryland legalizes sports betting, Caesars should be part of all bettors' sportsbook rotations. A great welcome bonus will be available with the use of a single promo code, boosted odds are readily available in major markets, and the desktop and mobile app are inviting and easy to navigate and use.
We hope to see more tournaments and contests run for bettors in the future, but that's really splitting hairs on what is one of our favorite sportsbooks that we've reviewed. Make sure to take full advantage of the $1,250
"First Bet On Caesars" begin your sports betting experience with a bang at Caesars Sportsbook Maryland.
Caesars is not yet live in Maryland but we expect this company to offer one of the sportsbooks that launch online once the effort to legalize online sports betting is complete in the state. Launch is expected in late Spring 2022.
Yes, we expect that Caesars Sportsbook Maryland will have a $1,250 first bet on the house for all new users. That's what the promotion currently is in states where Caesars is up and running, and we expect that Maryland will be the same once legal sports betting comes to the Old Line State.
We expect that bettors will need to be at least 21 years of age to legally bet on professional and college sports in Maryland once Maryland finishes its push to legalize betting.
Caesars does have an online casino presence, though it's currently only offered in three states: New Jersey, Michigan, and West Virginia.
Yes, the Caesars sportsbook app is available for both Apple and Android users and is one of the best mobile apps that we've reviewed.
Yes, Caesars Maryland sportsbook has plenty of in-game betting options on most major markets. These live betting options are some of the best we've come across at any online sportsbook.
