Nevada sports betting apps are typically a step behind those available in other states. Later this year sports bettors in the Silver State will finally be able to use an app on par with those available to players outside of Nevada.
Caesars currently uses a different app in Nevada. The Caesars Sportsbook by William Hill app is different to than what the company offers in most other states with legal sports betting. This app is essentially a copy of the William Hill Nevada sports betting app.
During the company’s recent earnings call, Caesars Digital co-president, Eric Hession, shared plans for the latest version of the Caesars Sports app.
“As we look to the back half of the year, we expect a number of significant product enhancements for our customers in key areas such as cash out speed, customer service, and parlay and alternative line offerings.
We also anticipate converting all of our Caesars’ branded apps and sportsbooks to our Liberty tech stack by the end of 2022.”
The last sentence in this quote is the key for sports bettors in Nevada. Caesars will deploy its latest mobile technology to all markets where Caesars has a sportsbook app.
Look for the new Caesars Sports app by the end of 2022
Hession did not reveal a specific date for Nevada sports bettors to have access to the newest version of the Caesars Sports app. He did give a timeframe on when it will be available.
The new Caesars Sports app may not be available when the college and pro football seasons kick off in a few weeks. However, Nevada football bettors should be able to use the new app before the season is over if Hession’s “end of 2022” timeline holds true.
Regardless of the new menu and wagering options, Caesars and all sportsbook operators in Nevada target football season for mobile app and physical updates to anywhere football fans may watch the games.
Football is the king of sports betting in Nevada
Football season is an important timeframe for sportsbook operators. This is typically the busiest season for sports bettors in Nevada on mobile sports betting apps and inside casinos.
According to UNLV Gaming, Nevada casinos won more money from professional and college football betting than any other sport last year.
Annually, sports bettors usually wager more money on pro and college football than any other sports. Last year was an exception for which sports bettors wagered on in Nevada.
There was slightly more money wagered on basketball than football for the first time in years. However, sportsbooks still won more money from football bets.
The company is touting that the new Caesars Sports app will offer a larger betting menu. The new offerings will include more live betting options and same-game parlays.
Same-game parlays are available nationwide but are less common in Nevada. This kind of bet is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a parlay that includes multiple outcomes (like a parlay) for one game.
For example, a same-game parlay for the Las Vegas Raiders could include the following:
- Raiders to win
- The point total to go over
- Derek Carr throws five touchdown passes
- Darren Waller catching 10 passes
Bettors around the country are enjoying same-game parlays. Being able to make multiple wagers at one price for their favorite team makes watching the games a little more fun.
Caesars would like to have the newest version of its app available sooner than later. This would potentially allow the company to capture more money than the existing version with the new wagering options.
