Casino Metro has announced its partnership with Caesars Sportsbook to launch MetroBets, specifically in Puerto Rico, in 2023. Regulatory approvals are needed for the project to move forward. After that, guests at Casino Metro will be able to have fun with a retail sports betting product.
The project is ambitious, with an opening scheduled for 2023. It will see the addition of 7,000 square feet of space to accommodate the expanded operations of Casino Metro. The renovation will conclude by giving the infrastructure a more modern look with 25 LED televisions and odds boards.
For players to place their bets, 12 self-service betting kiosks and 3 betting windows will be available.
Subject to regulatory approvals, MetroBets has plans in place to go beyond the current sphere by entering satellite wagering locations throughout the Commonwealth. Caesars Sportsbook brings to the table the partnerships established with the NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL, among other teams. It is also an exclusive provider for ESPN and CBS Sports.
Caesars Sportsbook is one of the best sports betting sites in USA. Moreover, Caesars Sportsbook interacts with players through its social media channels. Players can constantly get updates related to the industry.
Ismael Vega, the general manager of Casino Metro, has expressed their pride in launching MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook. The partnership generated approximately 30 new jobs by entering the world of sports betting. Vega has stated that the project is currently undergoing analysis and preparation.
MetroBets is expected to conclude the production by the second quarter of 2023.
Eric Hession, the president of Caesars Digital, said that the venture always wanted to align with a partner who shared a similar mindset and values. Puerto Rico has a unique framework for its operations. Having a partner by the side always comes in handy.
Eric added that Caesars Digital found an ideal partner in Casino Metro, which already has a strong base of customers in the region along with strong brand recognition.
Casino Metro is the largest casino in Puerto Rico in terms of slot machines, occupying a 23,000-square-foot area. There are 19 gaming tables and 547 slot machines in the casino. The majority of slot machines are kept for Casino Metro solely.
The numbers will change after expansion. Casino Metro will have over 25 gaming tables and 650 slot machines in an area of 30,000 square feet.
Caesars Entertainment is one of the industry’s largest casino operators. It offers a variety of facilities, including gambling, entertainment, and hospitality, among others. The Caesars Rewards Loyalty Program is available to players that frequently interact with the company.
The enterprise takes Responsible Gambling seriously, urging players to stick to their maximum limits only.
The partnership, if it works wonders, has a plan in place to expand further, which would increase the reach for both brands and allow more players to entertain themselves.
