Caesars Sportsbook sign-up promo for Maryland – how it works
After you sign up at Caesars and enter the Caesars Maryland code LEGALPICS, the next step is to make a deposit. Then, place any wager that will settle within one week’s time 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 $1,500.
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. And as it must settle within a week, don’t use it on futures bets.
You 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 Caesars Sportsbook welcome offer, just the winnings from your bet.
Caesars Sportsbook Maryland alternative offer
If you don’t like the sounds of the risk-free bet, there is an alternative. Caesars will give you a $100 free bet after you first bet, win or lose. The first bet must be between $20 and $100.
How Caesars’ welcome bonus stacks up
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.
Can I trust Caesars Sportsbook?
Yes. On top of being among the most recognizable names in gambling, Caesars received its wagering license in MD from the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission. It must abide by the rules and regulations established by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency in order to maintain its license.
Caesars has other ties to Maryland, as well. Specifically, Caesars has a partnership with the Baltimore Ravens which establishes Caesars as the NFL team’s ‘premier sports betting partner’. And Caesars operates a retail sportsbook at the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore.
Focusing on MD sports betting, there are a couple of conditions you’ll need to meet to place bets in the state.
- You must be 21 or older to wager on sports in the state.
- 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.
When did Caesars Sportsbook launch in Maryland?
Caesars launched its online sportsbook on November 23 in Maryland.
We started to get a sense the date was close when John Martin, the director of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, stated earlier in the year that he believed regulated sportsbooks will launch in-state before the end of 2022.
The Sports Wagering Application Review Commission then met on November 16 to finalize licensing applications. They approved 10 licensees, including Caesars. Allowing some time for final preparations and testing, Caesars arrived at November 23 as the go-live date.
Caesars is already a player in the US sports betting market. It provides online sports betting and online casino games in most states where it is legal to do so, along with some iconic in-person casino locations.
The online sportsbook is partnered with Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, where it boasts a retail sportsbook, and the Baltimore Ravens for access to Maryland’s sports betting market. You can already place in-person bets at the casino’s sports betting kiosks. Thanks to Caesars, the casino and stadium also recently partnered on an extensive Walk at Warner Street redevelopment project.
Getting started at Caesars Sportsbook Maryland sports betting
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:
- First and last name
- Home address
- Phone number
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of your Social Security number
- Caesars Sportsbook promo code LEGALPICS
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. You must enter the Caesars code LEGALPICS to get your first bet on Caesars for up to $1,250.
How do I download the Caesars Sportsbook MD app?
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.
Where do I find Caesars Sportsbook Maryland promotions?
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.
Claiming Caesars’ promotions
For the most part, you don’t have to opt in to any Caesars MD 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.
What kind of promos does Caesars offer?
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.
Specific to Maryland users, Caesars is the premier sports betting partner of the Baltimore Ravens. You can expect to find additional promos that highlight that partnership from time to time.
Why should I choose the Caesars Sportsbook app?
Here are three of Caesars top strong points that sports bettors may want to consider when choosing a sportsbook in Maryland.
- Odds boosts: We’re pretty sure Caesars has more odds boosts each day than any other sportsbook. It’s not uncommon to see 40 or more offers when you log in. Another point in its favor is that odds boost wagers are capped at $100, while many other books cap theirs at $50.
- App and website integration: If you’re anything like us, you’ll be using Caesars Sportsbook on your computer as well as your mobile device(s). That means the last thing you want to deal with is separate layouts for each device. At Caesars you’ll get the same experience whether you’re on a computer or Android or iOS device.
- Wealth of betting markets: Caesars has an abundance of pro and college leagues to bet on and a variety of betting options available for games, as well. In addition to betting on games on a nightly basis, you also can place futures bets and bet in real time thanks to Caesars’ live betting markets.
- Strong Maryland ties: Caesars has deep connections to Maryland. It is partners with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, a partnership that applies to both its online sportsbook and to the Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore. The casino also features a retail sportsbook where you can make your wagers in person.
What won’t I like about the Caesars sports betting app?
And to continue helping you pick a sportsbook, here are three areas where Caesars could stand to improve.
- Parlay promotions: If you’re a fan of parlays, you might be a little disappointed in the rarity of parlay boosters and parlay promos. Other sportsbooks often refund you money when you miss parlays by just one leg and/or boost your winnings on wagers with a certain number of legs.
- High-stakes promotions: People will define high stakes differently. But if you’re not someone who cares to wager $50 or $100 on a single bet, you likely won’t qualify for some of Caesars’ promotions.
What kind of bets can I make at Caesars online sports betting?
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)|
Which team is the favorite and which is the underdog?
You can determine which team is favored by looking at either the spread or moneyline odds. 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.
What the odds mean
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.
How point spread betting works
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.
What about the total?
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.
Prop betting at Caesars
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 online prop bets for a game by clicking on each contest.
Parlays at Caesars
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 Caesars online betting, 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.
Can I bet on the Baltimore Orioles at Caesars Maryland?
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.
- Home runs: While pretty much all sportsbooks offer home run prop bets, Caesars might offer more than any of them. You can wager on a player to homer in a game, but you also can wager on which player will homer off the opposing starting pitcher first. Caesars also has what it calls “Anytime Wincasts,” which combine a player homering and that team winning. And if you really want a potentially big payout, you can bet on two players homering in the same game or on someone hitting a grand slam. You’ll likely see odds of +1,000 and above for those wagers.
- Pitching wagers: Hitters aren’t the only ones you can bet on at Caesars, although the pitching markets tend to be far fewer. However, you can place over/under bets on pitcher strikeout totals, whether a team will be shut out or whether a team will allow fewer than three or four runs during the first six innings.
- Double result: This is a bet on which team will be winning after five innings and which team will win the game. There are six available options for each game, and choosing one team to be leading after five innings and then the other team winning almost always has the highest odds.
- Correct score: When you feel like channeling your inner Nostradamus you can even wager on what a game’s exact score will be. There are scores of options for each game, so be sure to choose wisely.
- First team to score: You can wager on which team will score first along with betting on whether there will be a two-run scoring play or a three-run scoring play in the game.
This is just a small look at all your MLB 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.

How does Caesars compare to other Maryland sportsbooks?
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, available when you use the DraftKings promo code, FanDuel promo code, or the BetMGM Maryland promo code.
The strong Maryland connections via the Baltimore Ravens partnership, and the Caesars sportsbook at Horseshoe Casino, are further reasons to consider Caesars a top choice for local users.
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.
