Mobile sports betting is coming to Kentucky, and Caesars Entertainment announced that its flagship sports wagering app, Caesars Sportsbook, is now available for download and registration. Sports fans who want to prepare for the launch of mobile sports wagering can download the Caesars Sportsbook app on iOS and Android or visit caesars.com/sportsbook on desktop to register and take advantage of a special early deposit offer when depositing between September 7 and 27.
“Launching Caesars Sportsbook for pre-registration in Kentucky is an exciting step as we prepare to bring customers in the Commonwealth a sports wagering experience that treats them like royalty this fall. Whether in-person at our conveniently located sportsbook at Red Mile Gaming & Racing in Lexington that will take its first bets on September 7, or on mobile devices anywhere in the state from Pikeville to Paducah, Caesars Sportsbook will allow fans to engage with their favorite sports and teams through an array of wagering options,” Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, said.
The Caesars Sportsbook app offers an unmatched sports wagering experience where customers can enjoy a variety of deposit options, quick payouts, and user-friendly features that make betting easy and fun. In addition, Caesars Sportsbook features lightning-fast scoreboards, livestreaming of marquee sporting events, and expanded in-play betting options, including live same-game parlays, and next-play and player prop markets.
New customers in Kentucky are eligible for a special offer when they register and deposit early, including registering using promo code CZRKY, depositing $20 or more between September 7 and 27, and receiving $100 in Bonus Bets (one $25 bet on the day mobile wagering goes live and three subsequent $25 Bonus Bets every week thereafter).
In addition to the Caesars Sportsbook app, Caesars previously announced plans for a retail sportsbook at Red Mile Gaming & Racing in Lexington, which is set to open and accept its first sports bets on Thursday, September 7. The Company’s partnerships with both Red Mile and Keeneland further reinforce Caesars’ commitment to horse racing and the continuous expansion of the Caesars Racebook app, which is live in 17 states, including Kentucky.
When sports betting launches in the Bluegrass State, Kentucky sports fans can enjoy mobile sports betting tied to unmatched rewards via the industry-leading customer loyalty program, Caesars Rewards. Every wager placed in-person or via the Caesars Sportsbook mobile app earns Tier Credits that contribute to status and Reward Credits that can result in extraordinary Caesars Rewards experiences, discounted getaways at various Caesars destinations across the US, bonus cash in the Caesars Sportsbook app, and world-class culinary experiences.

Global esports and gaming organization Gen.G and the University of Kentucky (UK) are bringing back their award winning collegiate esports industry conference, Campus Takeover, on March 30 and April 6. This two-day event will bring together esports professionals with students and administrators from different universities. UK continues to pave the way as an esports ecosystem leader in the SEC and Midwest region.
Campus Takeover Day 1 is a student-focused event leading up to the professional conference, and will be live-streamed at twitch.tv/universityofky on March 30 starting at 4:30 PM EST. Campus Takeover Day 2, the flagship professional conference, will be hosted at the Don & Cathy Jacobs Science Building on the University of Kentucky campus on April 6, starting at 10:00 AM EST.
“Since we started this event, we had a responsibility to uphold what future students expect of the University of Kentucky when it comes to their budding esports careers. There’s a lot expected about the future of gaming and esports, and we want to make sure our students are well equipped to be that expected change for years to come,” Heath Price, Associate Chief Information Officer at University of Kentucky, said.
Additionally, many esports professionals hailing from different segments of esports business will participate in various panels during Campus Takeover. The panels and discussions will cover a bevy of topics, including how to maximize your time when looking for new jobs, a conversation around esports, influencers, business, and video games, a look at intersectionality in games, and much more. Other clubs and programs will also be welcome to have tables within the Atrium during Campus Takeover, so even newer students get to see everything UK has to offer.
“University of Kentucky has been our long term collegiate partner; their investment in this community allows us to have a small hand in making sure the future of gaming and esports is secure. We all want to see this industry thrive, and we hope Campus Takeover is a stepping stone for other schools to form their own ways to develop the collegiate esports ecosystem,” Martin Kim, Chief Revenue Officer at Gen.G, said.
