Leading online betting and gaming operator Caesars has communicated its app is now ready for registration in Kentucky. Kentuckians have been able to place legal bets in-person at horse racing tracks around the state since September 7th, 2023. However, legal wagering is about to become much more easily accessible as licensed online sportsbooks are expected to start accepting bets from September 28th on.
In this sense, Caesars wants to assist bettors in preparations for that date by letting them get their account registrations and first deposits out of the way ahead of time. The Caesars Sportsbook app, available for both Android and iOS devices, is proposing incentives for account signups in Kentucky.
Between now and 5:59 a.m. local time on September 28th, Caesars is offering four USD 25 bonus bets for new customers in Kentucky who open accounts in the app and make a minimum deposit. There are other conditions to note with this deal as well: a) the promotion is only for new Caesars customers; if players already have wagered online with Caesars in another state before, they’re ineligible; b) they must register their account with the promo code BESTBONUSKY; c) the minimum deposit to qualify for the offer is USD 20; d) Caesars will credit the player account with his/her first USD 25 bonus bet on September 28th, then a subsequent USD 25 bonus bet each Monday thereafter until he/she has received all four bonus bets; e) all bonus bets expire seven days after issuance; f) any winnings from bonus bets will not include the bonus bet stake, and g) bonus bets cannot be withdrawn as real money.
Caesars isn’t the only licensed Kentucky online sportsbook currently offering pre-launch bonuses. Other companies are also presenting their own promotions: 1) Bet365: register for an account in the app to receive USD 10 in bonus bets for every touchdown in the September 28th Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers game; 2) BetMGM: sign up now and get USD 100 in bonus bets in your account on launch day; 3) DraftKings: get eight USD 25 bonus bets in your account on launch day if you sign up early; and 4) FanDuel: is also offering USD 100 in bonus bets for early registrations.
