The offer is good for your first placed bet after you make a deposit. Once your account is all set, you have seven days to take advantage. The bet must also settle within seven days after being placed in order to be eligible, so don’t use it on a long-term futures bet.
If you lose the bet, Caesars will provide you with a credit in full up to the max amount of the offer, such as $1,200 back on a losing $1,200 bet. The credit can take up to 72 hours to be credited back to your account, and it must be used within seven days of receiving it.
You won’t be able to withdraw the amount of the credit. It’s there for you to place more bets, and any winnings you gain from the credit will be yours to do with as you wish. Caesars is offering our readers a lot of protection on their first bet, so be sure to take advantage.
Yes, Caesars is a trustworthy name in the gambling industry. Furthermore, it is licensed and regulated by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. You should have no worries about your personal and financial data with Caesars.
You have to be at least 21 years old to bet at an online sportsbook in Iowa. Caesars will check your age and identity when you register for an account.
In order to place bets at online sportsbooks in Iowa, you must be within state lines. That is why Caesars uses geolocation to verify your whereabouts when you are logged in. If you do not allow the geolocation or you’re outside the state, you won’t be able to bet.
To open an online sportsbook account at Caesars in Iowa, you’ll need to provide the following information:
To sign up with Caesars, all you have to do is head to the sportsbook homepage, select “Play Now” and then tap “Sign Up.” After submitting the completed form, you will be all signed up.
The Caesars app is free and available for Android and iOS devices. Downloading it will be a straightforward process that’ll take around a minute.
Head to the main page of the Caesars online sportsbook, scroll to the bottom and click “Get the App.” Choose “Download for iOS.” From there, follow any additional prompts to complete the download process.
Again click on “Get the App” at the bottom of the homepage, and then this time tap “Download for Android.” Once more follow any additional prompts to complete the process.
On the Caesars app, there is a tab at the bottom labeled “Promos” with a megaphone icon, while on the website there is a link labeled “Promotions” at the top of the screen. Clicking them will take you to the Caesars promotions page. From there, you can click the “More info” button below every promo to find out precisely how each offer works.
Caesars has a variety of deals for players. Here are some of the types of promos you might find:
Yes, not only does Caesars Sports offer boosted bets every day, it offers more daily boosts than most other sportsbooks we’ve come across. Simply click on the “Boosts” link and you can check out all the wagers with increased odds for that day. Caesars also allows boosted odds bets of up to $100, while most other sportsbooks limit wagers to $50 on odds boosts.
While Caesars is among the premier sportsbooks in Iowa, there are still a few areas where we’d like to see it improve.
Caesars offers an array of bets for all the top sports leagues in the US and abroad. That means you can bet on spreads, moneylines and totals along with futures, props, round robins, parlays and teasers. Here is an example of what you might see listed for an NFL game at Caesars, followed by explanations of the various bets.
|Green Bay Packers||+2.5 (-110)||+120||Over 52.0 (-110)|
|Kansas City Chiefs||-2.5 (-110)||-140||Under 52.0 (-110)|
When you bet on the spread, you need to take the margin of victory into account. For the example above between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs, the favored Chiefs (-2.5) will have 2.5 points subtracted from their point total at the end of the game if you bet on Kansas City. If you wagered on the Packers, they will have 2.5 points added to their total. If your team is ahead after doing the math, then your spread bet wins.
The moneyline is what you will bet on if you simply are wagering on which side you think is going to win. As far as the odds, the Chiefs’ moneyline is -140, which means you would need to bet $140 to win $100 on a successful bet. The Packers’ moneyline of +120 means that if you bet $100, you would win $120 in profit on a successful bet. The same conversion rates apply to the odds for spreads and totals, which are generally around -110 on both sides.
Totals bets are for the combined points in a game. The sportsbook sets a line, and you can wager if you think the combined score will be over or under that line. In this example, Caesars has set the line at 52.0. That opens up the possibility of a push, which would happen if the two teams combined for exactly 52 points. If that were to happen, Caesars would refund your wager.
Prop bets are simply wagers on whether various events will or will not occur during games. For most pro sports, you will find a myriad of prop betting options for players, teams and the game as a whole. Note that Iowa does not allow prop bets on individual college athletes, so you won’t find those wagers at Caesars in Iowa.
The Caesars Sports app also has a variety of futures bets on season-long outcomes for both pro and college leagues. Just click on the league you’re interested in and then select “Futures bets.” For instance, prior to the start of the NFL season, you would be able to bet on a team to win the Super Bowl, a conference or a division. You also can bet on how many wins each team will have, whether a team will make the playoffs or on a player to win the MVP award, defensive player of the year, comeback player of the year or offensive or defensive rookie of the year.
These wagers all involve selecting multiple single bets and linking them together. In doing so, you then have the chance to win more than you otherwise would had you placed the bets individually.
To illustrate how these three options work, here’s an example. Say one NFL Sunday you want to wager on the Chiefs, Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears to cover the spread in four different games. Here’s how those selections would work with each of the options:
Live betting lets you bet on games as they are taking place, whenever there are games available, and it’s pretty much 24 hours a day thanks to international sports.
The main difference between pregame betting and live betting is that the lines and odds change much, much faster during live betting. On the Caesars app, it also means you can bet on what the result of the next play or at-bat will be for the top games. So be sure the game you’re watching isn’t on a delay.
Yes. Unlike in some states, like New Jersey, you can bet on local colleges and universities in Iowa. So you’ll be able to wager on the Hawkeyes as well as the Iowa State Cyclones, Northern Iowa Panthers and Drake Bulldogs, all of which field Division I football and basketball teams.
One of the things you will not find, however, is any prop bets on any of the players on any of those four teams, or any NCAA teams, for that matter. That’s because Iowa sports betting law does not allow college player prop bets.
Making deposits and withdrawals is fairly easy on either the Caesars app or website. While we find the banking methods to be fairly extensive, make sure there are options that suit you. There’s nothing worse than winning a big bet and not having a convenient way to cash out your winnings.
|Deposit Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Online Bank Transfer||$20||Instant|
|ACH (e-check)||$20||Up to 2 Days|
|Caesars Play+ Prepaid Card||$20||Instant|
|PayNearMe||$20||Roughly 15 Minutes|
|Withdrawal Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Online Bank Transfer||No Minimum||Within 72 hours|
|ACH (e-check)||No Minimum||Within 72 hours|
|Caesars Play+ Prepaid Card||No Minimum||Within 72 hours|
If you experience any problems with Caesars, there are a number of options for getting help. All of them begin with clicking the “Support” link on the website or clicking on your account and then scrolling down to the support options on the app.
Caesars provides a number of choices if you want to impose limits on your sportsbook account or shut it down completely. After signing into your account, you simply need to click on one of the “Responsible Gaming” links.
Once there, you can set your own limits for how much you can deposit, how much you can wager and how long you can be logged into the sportsbook website or app. You can set limits for days, weeks or months. And once you’ve reached a limit, you will not be able to exceed it.
You also can elect to close your Caesars Sportsbook account completely. Doing so does require filling out and submitting a form, and once you have done so, there is no going back. Though you will be able to withdraw whatever funds are remaining in your account.
Yes, you have six options when it comes to betting at a Caesars Sportsbook in person in Iowa. The retail sportsbooks are at the following locations:
Caesars is one of the preeminent online and retail sportsbooks in Iowa. We have no problem with ranking it right near the top of the list along with BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings, and we would even put PointsBet up there, as well. Caesars offers a variety of betting markets, competitive odds across the board and an abundance of high-quality promotions.
No, you don’t have to because as of Jan. 1, 2021, sportsbooks in Iowa can offer remote registration.
No, you will not have to pay a fee to withdraw funds from Caesars, and there also is not a minimum withdrawal requirement.
Online sportsbook accounts are tied to individuals. Unlike social media accounts, you have to confirm your identity in order to open an account with Caesars or any other licensed sportsbook in the state. For that reason, you cannot have more than one account.
It’s a really close call. Instead of proclaiming a winner, we’ll just say this: We like the rewards program at DraftKings better, while the overall range of promotions at Caesars is slightly better. Both books offer a solid betting experience with a variety of wagering options, and both offer same-game parlays.
