Welcome to the world of legal online sports betting in New York.
After years of lobbying and fighting, following months of waiting, the day has finally arrived. The first betting apps have launched in the Empire State. Among them: Caesars Sportsbook.
And to commemorate such a historic day, Caesars NY is offering a historic offer for new sportsbook users, one exclusive to New York and one bettors can take advantage of with very little effort.
Caesars Sportsbook NY offering up to $3,300 in free bets
In time for the final week of the NFL regular season, not to mention the playoffs and the Super Bowl, Caesars went live Saturday as one of the first New York online sportsbooks to launch in the Empire State.
What’s more, a goliath offer awaits new Caesars users.
Between now and Jan. 21, just by signing up and making a first-time deposit with the sportsbook, new bettors can claim up to $3,300 in free bets. It should be noted that individuals with existing Caesars or William Hill accounts will not be eligible for this promotion.
However, new users who register their online sports betting accounts using the promo code LEGALNEW, or better yet by clicking the banner above, will become eligible to cash in on this Caesars offer.
After creating and registering their account, new Caesars users will be awarded a $300 free bet. On top of that, within three days of opening their account, bettors who make a first-time deposit will have it matched by Caesars up to $3,000.
Bettors will have 30 days to use those free bets before they expire.

So now the question becomes: How can I create and register by Caesars account to claim these amazing offers?
The answer is simple. Just download the Caesars Sportsbook app and be ready to submit some personal information.
- Legal name

Caesars expands to New York online sports betting
It seems so long ago that the New York State Gaming Commission selected Caesars as one of nine online sportsbooks to offer legal wagering in the Empire State.
As a result, Caesars adds New York to its ever-growing list of jurisdictions in which it offers legal online sports betting.
Currently, Caesars is live in 12 states, including in nearby New Jersey and Pennsylvania. (It has also pre-launched in Louisiana, with hopes of accepting wagers by early 2022.)
Caesars joined three other online sportsbooks to launch in New York:
Meanwhile, New York state has not yet passed any legislation to allow for online casino gambling for real money. However, you can play blackjack and other table games at retail casinos in the Empire State. It’s possible that the laws regarding legal online blackjack and online roulette in New York may change in the future and that new online casinos in NY may subsequently launch seeking to target the potentially huge market.
