Disclaimer: Caesars online sportsbook is not currently available in Maryland. This review is speculative based on the Caesars offering in other states and will be updated when it launches here.
Legal sports betting in Maryland has paved the way for sportsbooks like Caesars to launch online, mobile and retail operations in the state. Should that happen, the company’s app, Caesars Sports, would allow for betting throughout the state. And a retail sportsbook appears likely at the Caesars-owned Horseshoe Casino Baltimore.
This page will serve as a guide to what you can expect from Caesars Sportsbook in Maryland, including its bonus for new customers, the sports you’ll be able to wager on, the bets you can place and additional promotions you can claim.
When you sign up at Caesars Sportsbook in Maryland, your first bet will be risk-free for up to $500. You’ll need to follow the Caesars link from this page to the sportsbook site to create an account, and enter the bonus code below when you do so.
|Maryland Sportsbook||Caesars Sportsbook MD|
|Caesars Maryland Bonus Code||TBD|
|Risk Free First Bet||Up to $500|
|Online Since||2021 in Maryland|
|Last Updated||July 2021|
After you sign up at Caesars and enter the bonus code, you’ll need to make a deposit. Then, place a wager that will settle within one week’s time, so no futures bets, and wait to see if it wins or loses.
If that first wager ends up losing, the sportsbook will issue you a refund for the same amount in the form of a free bet. The highest available free bet is $500. You still can bet more than that, but you only will be refunded $500.
There are no odds restrictions on your initial wager or free bet. However, the free bet will expire if you don’t use it within one week. You also won’t receive the value of your free bet back if it wins, only the winnings you obtained with it.
And if your first bet wins, you get nothing from the risk-free offer, just the winnings from your bet.
Caesars’ welcome bonus is a solid offer for new customers. The only real downside is that you do not get the free bet’s value back in any potential winnings. This becomes a bigger deal based on the size of your free wager, but it also is fairly standard for US sportsbooks. What elevates Caesars’ welcome bonus is the lack of any odds restrictions for either of your bets.
Yes. On top of being among the most recognizable names in gambling, Caesars is in line to receive a wagering license in MD from the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission.
Focusing on Maryland sports betting, there are a couple of conditions you’ll need to meet to place bets in the state.
Additionally, you must be within the state when betting or when cashing out bets early. The Caesars Sports app and website require you to allow geolocation to verify this. If you refuse or are outside of Maryland, you won’t be able to bet.
Signing up with Caesars online sportsbook takes only a couple minutes and requires a few personal details.
On the Caesars sign-up page, click the green “Play now” button in the middle of the screen. Follow the prompts from there and fill out the registration form. You’ll need to enter the following details:
You’ll need to verify that all your info is correct and that you are 21 or older. After that, you should be signed up and ready to start betting.
The Caesars app is available for Android and iOS devices, and the process to download it is not at all complicated. Head to the Caesars website on your phone or tablet and click the appropriate link for its operating system. From there, you’ll be able to follow the prompts to download and install the app on your device.
To see all the current promotions, select the “Promotions” tab at the top of the app or webpage. It might appear as if Caesars doesn’t have as many promotions as other sportsbooks because there are usually only three or four offers on the promos page. However, Caesars unveils new offers all the time, and many only last for a day or two, which is why there are never that many offers visible.
For the most part, you don’t have to opt in to any Caesars promotions. Instead, on the promotions page, you can read what you need to do in order to be eligible. Most of the time that will mean placing a spread or moneyline wager of a set amount on a specific game.
A majority of the promotions require you to win your initial bet to receive a bonus. This differs from a lot of other oddsmakers that offer refunds if your bets lose. The type of promotion you prefer really comes down to your personal preference. The case for Caesars’ promotions is that when you’re victorious, you end up winning big, while at other sportsbooks, all you’re doing is getting your money back.
Caesars still has promotions that reward you just for betting on certain sports and events and at times for placing losing bets, as well. Check each promotion’s terms and conditions to be sure you know exactly what you’re signing up for.
You’ll likely enjoy Caesars’ promotions if you don’t have a problem wagering $50 to $100 on spread and moneyline wagers. If that sounds too rich for you, then Caesar Sports promos might be a little out of your league. Though you still will find a few bonuses that don’t require such high entry fees.
Here are three of Caesars top strong points that sports bettors may want to consider when choosing a sportsbook in Maryland.
And to continue helping you pick a sportsbook, here are three areas where Caesars could stand to improve.
You can place spread, moneyline, over/under, proposition and futures wagers on the Caesars Sportsbook app, among other options. Here’s an example of what a game listing looks like at Caesars, along with explanations for the various bets.
|Baltimore Ravens||-4.0 (-110)||-215||Over 51.5 (-110)|
|Cleveland Browns||+4.0 (-110)||+185||Under 51.5 (-110)|
You can determine which team is favored by looking at either the spread or moneyline. Teams listed with negative numbers for the spread and moneyline are favored, and underdogs have positive numbers. So here, the Ravens are favored against the Browns.
The Ravens’ moneyline (which is the odds on who will win) of -215 is saying that you would have to wager $215 to win a profit of $100 on a successful wager. The Browns’ moneyline of +185 is saying that a $100 bet on underdog Cleveland would win you $185 if you’re right.
The odds for point spreads and totals are generally around -110 on both sides. Another way to see your potential winnings is to add the wager to your bet slip, and the sportsbook will calculate it for you.
When you place a point spread bet, your wager will take into account the margin of victory. In the example above, the Ravens need to win by more than four points to cover the spread, while the Browns must avoid losing by more than four. Thus, if the Ravens win the game 28-25, point spread bets on Cleveland would pay out.
Totals or over/unders are wagers on the total combined points in a game. It doesn’t matter which team wins, but if we stick with the Ravens beating the Browns 28-25, that would be 53 total points, and bets on the over would win.
Props are side bets on whether certain things will happen in a game but are not directly related to a game’s overall outcome. Caesars has props for player and team accomplishments, as well as on specific game situations. You can see all the available bets for a game by clicking on each contest.
Parlays, teasers and round robins all require you to make multiple selections, and you’ll find options to place each type of bet in your bet slip. Parlays and teasers require you to get all of your selections correct, while round robins let you still win some money if you don’t.
When you click on individual sports at the Caesars Sportsbook, you’ll see a button at the top labeled “Futures Bets.” That will show you current futures betting options for that sport or league. You can bet on outright championship winners and division and conference victors. In addition, Caesars has futures markets for regular season team win totals, for whether teams will make the playoffs and for individual player awards and statistical leaders.
Live betting lets you watch games and bet on them in real time. All you have to do is tap the “InPlay” header to show all the live betting options.
Across the top you can select the sport you want to live bet, and just like with pregame bets, clicking on the game shows you all your wagering choices. You also should see a drop-down scoreboard that shows you exactly what is going on in a game.
Yes, you can wager on the Baltimore Orioles and the rest of Major League Baseball at Caesars Sportsbook. You’ll have all of the above betting options available to you, along with some wagers that are distinct to baseball.
This is just a small look at all your betting options. Make sure to scroll through a few games on the Caesars MD app to get the best feel for all your wagering choices.
You can get money into and out of your Caesars account using any of the options listed below.
|Deposit Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|ACH (e-check)||$20||Up to 2 days|
|Online bank transfer||$20||Instant|
|Caesars Play+ Prepaid Card||$20||Instant|
|PayNearMe||$20||Roughly 15 minutes|
|Withdrawal Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|

The signs currently point to there being a retail Caesars Sportsbook at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore. Assuming that happens, you would be able to deposit and withdraw money from there. Just be sure to check the Caesars Sports app and contact customer service before heading down to make sure you have everything you need to make in-person transactions.
Whenever you need assistance, you can click your account and find multiple support options at the bottom of the page. You can chat with a service agent through the app or website. You also can call 855-754-1200, which is staffed seven days a week.
Once Caesars Sports officially launches in Maryland, there also will be an email address you can use to get help. And lastly, the help button will open a page with a variety of topics you can search through to try to find an answer to your question.
Caesars’ responsible gambling page will let you set up different betting limits and exclude yourself from all of the company’s betting establishments.
To self-ban, you will need to fill out a form and submit it. If you still want to play at Caesars, you can instead set wagering and deposit limits. You can set these for the day, week or month. You even have the option to restrict how much time you can be on Caesars app and website.
If you or a person you know has a gambling problem, you can also check this responsible gambling page for Maryland, where you can find links and advice.
If Caesars does open a retail sportsbook at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, which was one of the locations designated for a sports wagering license, then you will be able to bet in person there.
It’s hard to not consider Caesars to be one of the top sportsbooks in all of Maryland. The app works well on smartphones and tablets, and the website is solid. Caesars’ odds are on par with other top sportsbooks, and the plethora of daily odds boosts helps make up for a slight lack of promotions compared to other books in the state.
If you plan on having more than one sportsbook account, there is no reason that Caesars shouldn’t be one of them. And if you are only going to have one, then Caesars should make the list of contenders for that spot.
