Disclaimer: Caesars Sportsbook has yet to launch in Michigan. This review will be updated once the site goes live in Michigan.
Caesars Entertainment offers players an online sportsbook experience better than any coliseum. The Caesars Online Sportsbook Michigan opens the digital portal into sports games that are otherwise a world away, while also maintaining a keen eye on the odds of sports leagues playing closer to home.
Better yet, Michigan players that are physically located in the state and 21 or older can enjoy the plethora of sports and betting opportunities with extraordinary bonuses. These bonuses range from free betting cash to continual seasonal promotions.
From generous welcome bonuses, to first-class apps for iPhone/iPad and android devices. From opportunities to bet on your favorite Michigan teams to tie-ins to Caesars Rewards program. This review will get in depth on the Caesars Michigan Online Sportsbook and help you learn exactly what this exciting platform has to offer.
Caesars Sportsbook offers new players both a no-deposit bonus and a first deposit bonus.
Just sign up for a new account using the Caesars bonus code BETFREE10 to be eligible for both.
The no-deposit bonus consists of $10 in free bets within your first seven days on the site.

Caesars’ top-rated loyalty program is the result of a 2020 merger with Eldorado Resorts, which created the largest gambling company in the US at more than 55 land-based and online destinations nationwide.
Every dollar you wager on Caesars online sportsbook is tallied as two kinds of points — reward credits that you can redeem for cash and gifts, and tier credits that set your status in Caesars’ six-level VIP program.
Caesars Rewards is fully integrated with the online sportsbook and casino, and you can sign up for the program online. However, you will have to present valid identification in person at any Caesars hotel in order to qualify for the program’s full benefits.
If you already have a Caesars Rewards account, you will need to connect it to your online sportsbook account in order to receive credit for online wagers. Your rewards balance will reflect any credits earned online within 72 hours.
A Caesars Rewards app for Android and iOS mobile devices, which can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store, will help you keep track of your points. A number of bonus drawings and promotional offers also are available for Caesars Rewards app users.
You can redeem online reward credits for cash and online play, or convert them into reward credits that you can redeem at participating land-based Caesars’ properties for hotel stays, fine dining, live events and entertainment, online shopping, and more. Note that converting online reward credits into reward credits cannot be reversed.
Online reward credits will never expire, so you can save them up or use them right away. The exchange rate is 100 credits for $1 in cash, so 1,000 online reward credits can be redeemed for $10.
Online tier credits will contribute to your tier status at the same rate as offline play. The tier credits you earn between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 will set your tier status for the following year, at the following rate:
|Tier Level||Tier Credits|
|Gold||0 to 3,999|
|Seven Stars||125,000+ and invitation|
The higher you climb, the larger the discounts and comps, including complimentary valets, priority lines at hotel check-ins, restaurants, casino cashiers and players’ clubs, premium destinations and cruises, celebration dinners, VIP lounge access, airfare credits, hotel upgrades, invitations to exclusive events, and more.
Caesars Rewards may offer promotional tier credits that will allow you to jump up a whole level in one day. For instance, if you earn 2,500 tier credits in one day, you will receive an extra 5,000 tier credits as a bonus, which will boost you up to the Platinum level. Or earn 5,000 tier credits, receive 10,000 bonus credits and achieve Diamond status in just one day.
Caesars Sportsbook makes it easy for you to sign up for a new account. The process takes just minutes.
Sign up by clicking the “Join Now” tab on the top right of the CaesarsCasino.com home page.
From there, it’s a matter of filling out the required information, including:
Of course, you must also accept the terms and conditions, and submit the information to Caesars Casino & Sportsbook for verification to create your account.
However, you’ll be ready to fund your account and browse through the available betting markets in no time.
Caesars online sportsbook is legal throughout the state of Michigan. When the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, signed a set of bills that became law in late 2019, it made sports betting legal along with daily fantasy sports in the state.
Starting in March 2020, retail sportsbooks began opening throughout the state, followed later in the year by online sportsbooks.
One final aspect of the law to be aware of is that only existing casinos at the time of the law’s passage have or will be able to obtain sports betting licenses.
Instead of patching a new online sportsbook directly onto its existing casino app, Caesars started from scratch and rebuilt the whole thing. The result is an exceptional app with a clean, well-organized interface and excellent functionality.
The app is available for Android or Apple iOS mobile devices and tablets. You also will be able to access the site via any updated web browser for PC or Mac computers and laptops.
Use your mobile browser to navigate to the Caesars sportsbook site and click on the appropriate Android or iOS link to download and install the dedicated app.
iOS users will be routed to the Apple App Store, while Android users will need to download the app directly from the Caesars website. Once the download is complete, follow the prompts to install the app.
Caesars has made it easy to switch back and forth between the sportsbook and casino with just a click of a tab. The two even share a wallet, making online banking a breeze.
Although the app’s selection of sports may be somewhat smaller than the full-sized site, you still will be able to place wagers on all the usual pro leagues, including the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB, along with college basketball, tennis, golf and more.
You will find the same pregame and live betting options, odds and lines that you will find on the full-size site via web browser.
An emerging trend among many internet gambling sites is to reduce the number of loyalty credits your dollar will earn online in comparison with brick-and-mortar locations, but this is not the case at Caesars.
Whether you place your wager in person or online, you will earn one reward credit and one tier credit for every $10 wagered with Caesars Sportsbook. Note that this does not apply to online casino slots, which will earn one credit for each $10 wagered online, versus one for every $5 wagered at Caesars’ land-based properties.
Whether you’re a complete newbie, casual sports fan or professional sports bettor with years of experience behind you, Caesars has resources available to help you get the most out of your sports betting experience.
However, if it’s possible for a sportsbook to provide too much information, Caesars may be guilty of just that.
Click on a link to learn more about Caesars Rewards, and a new page will open. Instead of finding a concise, comprehensive synopsis of Caesars’ loyalty program, or a thorough, well-organized frequently asked questions section, the new page will offer half a dozen additional links, each of which will open in a new page and cover one specific aspect of the program.
By the time you’ve sifted through the wealth of information on six or seven pages, you may end up with more questions than you started with, if you haven’t forgotten what you were looking for in the first place.
This is not to say that the information Caesars provides isn’t useful. The sportsbook isn’t one of the best in the business by accident.
Even so, it would be a marked improvement if at least more information were accessible from one page. On an ideal site, clicking on a topic would expand the answer below, with no need to route you to a new page.
Caesars offers betting markets on most major sports, including:
Michigan has a rich history of both college and professional sports teams, giving us Michiganders a great opportunity to now bet on our favorite teams. Let’s run through the pro and college teams you can bet on at Caesars online sportsbook.
In the NFL, you have the Detroit Lions to follow and bet on. The Lions play in one of the most iconic division in football, the NFC North, along with the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings. Caesars Sportsbook offers an abundance of betting options for the NFL. All the usual bets are available, including live betting, while you also will set prop bets galore on each game.
As for the NBA, you have the Detroit Pistons, who reside in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division. Caesars has plenty of betting choices when it comes to the Pistons and the rest of the NBA. Pick from the regular bets like moneylines and over/unders, live betting, of course, and prop bets such as how many rebounds a specific player will have.
Rounding out the Michigan pro sports teams you can bet on at Caesars are the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings play in the Atlantic Division of the NHL. You can bet on all Red Wings game and the rest of the NHL obviously, although in hockey the number of prop bets tends to be a little lower than with the other big professional sports leagues.
The action doesn’t slow down much when it comes to Michigan college teams.
The two biggest attractions by far are the University of Michigan and Michigan State. The Wolverines and Spartans play in the Big Ten Conference, and both schools are contenders for the conference and NCAA championships in both football and men’s basketball with regularity. You can bet on both at Caesars.
While they don’t get the same attention as Michigan and Michigan State, there are five other Division I teams in the state.
Three of them play in the Mid-American Conference. They are Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan. The Chippewas, Eagles and Broncos all field men’s basketball and football programs that you can bet on at Caesars Sportsbook.
The final two Division I schools in the state are Detroit Mercy and Oakland. The two play in the Horizon League, and neither has a football team. The Titans and Golden Eagles do have men’s basketball squads that you’re able to bet on, however.
Most standard wagers are available on the Caesars Sportsbook platform.
Caesars includes unique features like live betting.
The central betting types available on Caesars Sportsbook include:
It also hosts the following unique betting options.
Betting on individual games can be enjoyable, but it’s also fun to play the long game sometimes. And that’s where futures betting comes in. By making bets at the start of a season as to how your team is going to perform over the long haul, you get the chance to watch your wager play out for months. And let’s be honest, with as much as our local pro teams have struggled lately, if we put a few bucks down on them to have a good season and we’re right, we’ll end up making a pretty hefty return.
Starting things off with the NBA — when it comes to the Pistons, you can bet on the over/under for their regular season wins and whether they’ll win their division, the Eastern Conference or the NBA title. Player futures also are available at Caesars; you can bet on who will win the MVP award.
As for the Lions and the rest of the NFL, Caesars has futures available for team win totals for the season, division and conference winners, and for the Super Bowl champ, of course. Just like the NBA you can place a futures bet on the winner of the AP MVP Award.
The choices are very much the same for the Red Wings and Tigers, as well.
In the NHL, Caesars has futures for the Red Wings, and the rest of the league’s teams, on their regular season record, which teams will win each division, the conference champion and then who will lift the Stanley Cup at the end of the postseason. You can wager on the winner of the Hart Memorial Trophy, given to the NHL’s MVP, too.
Finishing off the pro sports with the Tigers and Major League Baseball, your futures options at Caesars Sportsbook are over/unders for every team’s regular season win total, and selecting division and overall league champs and the World Series victor. Interestingly enough, Caesars didn’t offer futures for individual awards during the 2020 baseball season. We’ll keep an eye out as to whether that was due to the shortened season or if that will be the plan going forward.
The futures market for college teams is much less than what you get with the major pro leagues.
Locally you have the ability to bet on both Michigan State and Michigan to win either the NCAA football or men’s basketball championships at Caesars. But unless any of the state’s other five Division I schools (Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Central Michigan, Detroit Mercy or Oakland) are expected to have a good season, it is unlikely Caesars will have odds.
Caesars Sportsbook offers live betting, which is also known as in-play wagering.
With live betting, you can wager on the action in the middle of a game with odds that are continuously adjusting.
Live betting is available for most major sports at Caesars Sportsbook.
To place a bet, you must log in to your account, create a bet slip and confirm the bet.
It’s really easy. First, log in to your account with the username and password you created at sign up.

Check the bet slip to make sure the odds posted are what you want. Then, fill in the amount you wish to bet in the space available.
Caesars Sportsbook will show you the potential payout. Furthermore, you can toggle through some other potential betting options through the “More Info & Options” tab.

Suggestions or Feedback:
Caesars currently does not have a retail sportsbook in Michigan. It is expected it will open one, most likely at the property of the Michigan casino it decides to partner with.
We will let you know as soon as that happens.
Caesars is one of the biggest names in the world of gambling and sports betting; that alone gives Caesars Sportsbook a leg up on a lot of the competition vying to become the top sportsbook in the state.
With such a long, storied history, there’s no doubt you can trust doing business with Caesars and feel confident the odds you’re getting are among the best out there. Becoming the best book in the state, though, means topping sites like DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet, to name a few.
It’s tough to say which one will eventually be crowned king in Michigan, but there’s little reason to think Caesars won’t be among a small handful worthy of being in the discussion for best sportsbook in Michigan.
