Caesars Sportsbook Debuts in Maine with a Commitment to Tribal Partnerships
Maine has officially entered the sports betting arena, and leading the charge is Caesars Entertainment with its flagship Caesars Sportsbook.
A New Era for Sports Betting in Maine
This venture not only introduces a world-class sports betting platform to the Pine Tree State but also marks a historic collaboration with the Wabanaki Nations – an alliance that exemplifies Caesars’ dedication to supporting Indian gaming and local communities.
Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, expressed his enthusiasm for the launch: “Maine sports fans deserve an elevated sports wagering experience that matches the pedigree of sports fandom in New England.” He acknowledged the pivotal roles of Governor Janet Mills, the Maine Legislature, and the Maine Gambling Control Unit in bringing this project to fruition.
Strengthening Tribal Sovereignty and State Economy
The partnership forged with the Wabanaki Nations – the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, the Mi’kmaq Nation, and the Penobscot Nation – is a cornerstone of this launch. Leaders from these Nations have expressed their excitement and pride in bringing online sports betting to Maine, with Chief Kirk Francis of the Penobscot Nation noting Caesars’ “decades-long history of working with Tribal Nations.”
The union is celebrated for not only offering a state-of-the-art betting experience but also for bolstering the local economy and supporting crucial community needs such as law enforcement, healthcare, housing, and education.
A Sports Betting Experience with Benefits
The Caesars Sportsbook app promises Maine’s sports enthusiasts a betting experience replete with rewards. Users can expect premium perks through Caesars Rewards®, with every wager contributing to exclusive experiences and benefits. Moreover, the platform is designed with the user in mind, offering live streaming, in-app scoreboards, and a range of betting options.
To mark the launch, Caesars is presenting new customers in Maine with an enticing offer: Bet $50 and receive $100 in Bonus Bets, further sweetening the arrival of this highly anticipated sports betting experience.
