Caesars Kansas Sportsbook Review & Launch Details (August)

Kansas Sports Betting Update

Kansas flagKansas does not currently have a legal sports betting market. However, with recent efforts of Kansas lawmakers, legislation to legalize the activity has passed the House and the Senate. The bill, SB 84 has now landed itself on Gov. Laura Kelly’s desk, where it is awaiting her much anticipated and highly expected signature.

The legislation calls for the legalization of both online sports betting and retail sports betting at Kansas’ four state-owned casinos. These casinos will each be rewarded three online skins and will be able to partner with up to 50 other retailers at their respective casinos. Revenue will be taxed at a 10% rate excluding free play and promotions from their taxable income. It’s been recently announced that 80% of the tax revenue generated will be used to lure professional sports teams to Kansas. Kansas currently has one professional sports team, Sporting Kansas City of the MLS.

Other details central to the bill is its permission of college sports betting, both in-state and out of state, possible issuance of sports betting licenses to tribal casinos in the state, and a hard launch deadline of January 1, 2023. With that deadline in mind, Kansas sports fans will at the very least be able to bet on the NFL playoffs but it is likely that the market will launch before that, maybe even before the regular season begins. For that to happen, Kelly needs to sign soon!

Caesars Sportsbook Desktop and Mobile App Review

Being one of the premier sports betting operators in the world, Caesars has perfected its online platforms to make it both accessible and easy-to-use for users of all experience and expertise. Using the desktop version, users should select their state in which they want to bet, click “bet now” and they will be met with hundreds of betting options from darts to professional football to live in-game betting. Its design is simple, sleek, and easily navigable but offers hundreds of different bets to place.

The Caesars Sportsbook mobile app is an almost-replica of the desktop with some minor scale differences. Sports available to bet on are organized across the top and other important tabs line the bottom, giving the user all the important information in one place. They have also created a mobile website-optimized version to be accessible via the browser on your phone, however the app presents itself as worth downloading compared to the mobile web version. The app is available for both iOS and Android users!

Top 3 Features at Caesars Sportsbook

Because Caesars is so widely used and respected, it has been able to differentiate itself with top notch features that many other operators cannot yet provide. They are a leader in the industry by way of several features including but not limited to its early cash out option, plethora of promotions for everyone, and their all-inclusive rewards program.

1

Early Cash Out Option

One of the best features that Caesars Sportsbook offers is its early cash out option. This allows you to settle your bet before the event that you are betting on even ends. For inexperienced bettors this can allow you to cut your losses short or collect your payout big, giving you a chance to get comfortable. The only caveat is that not all betting options are eligible for this and users have to seek out events that offer it if they want to use this feature.

Kansas Legal History

Kansas has been pushing for sports betting since the federal ban was lifted in 2018. It was not until recently that the Senate finally passed the bill on a 21-13 margin that sent the bill, SB 84 to Gov. Laura Kelly’s desk for her signature that would effectively legalize the sports betting market in Kansas. Kelly has expressed her support for the market in the past so it’s expected that it will be legalized very soon.

The biggest change that came prior to the Senate’s passing of the bill was regarding the use of the generated tax revenue. The recent amendment promised 80% of the tax revenue to luring sports teams to Kansas. This addition came almost in complete conjunction with and announcement from Kansas City Chiefs President Mark Donovan that the Chiefs were looking to relocate Arrowhead Stadium outside of Missouri. Coincidence? We will see.

Summary

Caesars Sportsbook is among the most impressive in the industry and competes with the likes of DraftKings and FanDuel for the most market share in the U.S. What sets them most apart from other operators is their rewards program, promotions, customer service, ease-of-use, and recognizability. That being said, they fall relatively short in the sports and betting options they provide and could increase this in years to come.
