More Casino Reviews

Caesars Casino (& Sportsbook) is a multi-software developer online betting site with a wide range of games, numerous promotions and a good mobile platform. However, Canadians may find betting for real money tricky at CaesarsCasino, as players doing so are required to physically be in New Jersey.

Caesars Casino Signup Bonus for Canada

There were 10 promotions for sports and casino betting, at the time of review, which is an extensive range. On the casino side of things, the special offers include a straightforward no deposit welcome bonus amount of US$10, and a 100% match deposit bonus (up to a ceiling of US$300). The no deposit deal comes with a 1x wagering requirement (for slots, higher for other games) which is very low, whilst the match bonus has a 5x wagering requirement (for slots, higher for other games) which is also significantly lower than average. However, both also come with a mere 7 days to fulfill said requirements, which is a stringent restriction. There don't appear to be withdrawal caps, which make the deals a mixture of very generous in most regards, but rather strict on the time limits.

Ongoing Promotions

Existing players can benefit from wagering at Casino Caesars simply by linking up their betting account to their Caesars Rewards account. This loyalty program, which is a popular sort of promotion for online betting sites, also has certain unique advantages as the benefits can be enjoyed at dozens of Caesars Rewards resorts and casinos around the world.

NetEnt Games and Software at Caesars Casino

The bread and butter of any betting site is the product suite, and there's a wide selection available here. CaesarsCasino has hundreds of slots from a number of different software developers. Newcomers might enjoy NetEnt's Starburst, which has both good rewards and a simplicity that makes it popular with those playing slots for the first time. Other games include the Irish-themed Rainbow Cash Pots, from Inspired Gaming, and classically inspired Zeus II by WMS as well as Legends of Troy: Achilles' Glory by High 5 Games. The multiple developers means that there's both a larger number of games and a greater variance in style, so slots fans have a lot to experience. Whilst the slots (and other games) are easily searchable there is an absence of filters (most popular, highest jackpots etc.) which is a shame. You will, however, be able to filter search results alphabetically or by favorites of Casino Caesars.

Roulette, blackjack, and video poker each have their own sections. There are eight separate types of roulette, some you might expect (the American and European variants), and some you might not, such as a three wheel game. There are seven blackjack games and more than twice that for video poker, with a couple of poker variants available in the table games category. There are plenty of other games to enjoy, many with a virtual sports theme (greyhounds, racing, soccer and so on) and several slingo games too.

There is, however, no live dealer option, which is a rare blemish in a selection of games which is otherwise extensive in most areas.

In addition, there's also a sports side to the site, which you might find convenient if you also enjoy betting outside of the casino.

Caesars Mobile Casino

CaesarsCasino has a mobile casino app available that functions with both iOS and Android devices (for the latter, it can be downloaded via the site itself rather than the Play Store). The app is free for both operating systems, and offers hundreds of casino games (and sports betting opportunities).

Licensing and Security

The site is operated by Caesars Interactive Entertainment New Jersey LLC, which is licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. SSL technology is used to securely encrypt information.

Deposit and Withdrawal Options For Canadian Players

Registered players have several options for banking, including the ubiquitous choice of credit and debit cards. In addition to Visa and Mastercard, Caesars Casino also accepts American Express and Discover. Some card issuers may consider the deposit to be a cash advance, leading to additional fees.

Also available are ACH E-Checks, provided by Global Payments VIP Preferred, but this does require a US bank account. PayPal is a popular e-wallet that can be used for funding your account, but also requires a personal US account. Online bank transfers are in a similar boat, as an account is required with one of several primarily American banks (although ING Direct is also listed). Play+ is another service, but as this requires a social security number that suggests it may also be only for players from the USA. Likewise, the PayNearMe option allows for depositing at participating 7-Eleven, Family Dollar and CVS stores in the state of New Jersey. An unlikely but possible option is depositing in person, using the phone next to the Casino Cage, in Caesars Casino Atlantic City.

Whilst there is a reasonably good range of options, many of them require US accounts, which significantly limits the banking options for players from Canada.

However, the real kicker is that, according to the FAQs at the time of writing, to bet for real money an individual is required to be 21+ and physically present in the state of New Jersey. You are not required to be a New Jersey resident to register for an account, however. This rather puts a damper on the whole site for most people, including Canadians.

Customer Support at Caesars Casino

Should the FAQs page not answer a player's query, the site also offers customer support via live chat (desktop-only), telephone, and e-mail.

Our Overall Rating

There are lots of things to like about Caesars Casino, including a healthy range of generous promotions and multiple developers contributing to a broad suite of games. The restrictions on real money betting do make it impractical for most Canadians (and Americans, for that matter) which is a real negative point.
