That’s one thing I can say about my online casino and sportsbook registration experiences so far; they were remarkably uncomplicated.
With BetMGM and BetRivers under my belt, I moved on to the book named for the Emperor himself: the mighty Caesars.
Much of this experience was similar to its precursors. However, I did encounter minor bumps before making my first wager. That said, overall, my Caesars experience was positive.
Read on for the details.
Knowledge is power: Caesars online casino and sportsbook
Much like my earlier sign-up experiences, Caesars handled the basics very well.
There were, however, a couple of notable differences. Namely, I did not have to divulge my occupation or industry. There was the option to include your employers’ name and basic details, but I chose to skip over them as they weren’t mandatory.
Another notable difference? I didn’t have to upload any ID cards. At least, not yet.
Whether or not I will have to is still up in the air. But I’ve been playing on the site since Tuesday, so if it turns out I have to, I wonder why the wait.
When it came time to fund the account, that process went smoothly, too. The only real difference is that (for now) PayPal is the only deposit option.
But, once I remembered my PayPal login (no fault of Caesars), the deposit went through seamlessly. And, in no time, I was checking out my slot options (many) and the odds on tonight’s Blue Jays home opener in no time.
Lots of online casino game choices, a few hiccups as Caesars casino and sportsbook get going
My first slot-stop on my Caesars’ adventure was the original Cleopatra game, not just because Halle Berry features in Caesars’ commercials as the Egyptian Queen. But also a little bit for that reason, too.
Unfortunately for me, the Queen was a bit glitchy and got stuck in what seemed would be a perpetual spin. Instead of waiting for that to resolve, I cut that game short and moved on to 100,000 Pyramid.
When the same glitch happened again on the first spin, I wondered if it was the site, not the games misbehaving. But, before I had time to investigate, whatever bugs in the system appeared to shake themselves out.
With smooth sailing ahead, I moved once again. This time, I tried out Big Bonus, where I hung out winning, then losing, until I decided to give Caesars Blackjack option a go.
There I played for hours on a $20 deposit. When all was said and done, I didn’t win much, I didn’t really lose either, so I’m calling it a win.
Caesars online sportsbook: all over my Blue Jays action
Earlier today, I revisited Caesars to drop a few wagers on tonight’s game between the Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers.
In the end, I made three bets. Two on the Jays to win: including a single bet and a single-game parlay. Then I threw $5 down on a three-leg NBA parlay. If any bets land, the rake will pay for all the others with the odds boosts in play. So I don’t imagine I’ll be too upset regardless of the outcomes.
That said, winning is the best, lol.
My only real disappointment? The Caesars app isn’t supposed to launch in Ontario until Monday, so I won’t get to try any in-game betting at tomorrow’s Jays game.
I guess I’ll have to wait to try the app when I’m back in Toronto this summer. And really? I’ll take any excuse to hit up a summer ball game.
Caesars online casino and sportsbook: overall impression
Despite the minor glitches, I had a mainly positive experience playing at Caesars online. With nearly 150 casino games on hand for launch week, the Emperor is off to a great start in Ontario.
I can only imagine that launch kinks will be ironed out by June. Not only that, Caesars will likely have even more on offer.
And I have to say; I’m looking forward to coming back, firing up the app, and seeing what the Emperor’s been up to.
