The agreement with Raynham Park, which is just south of Boston, is pending approval by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
The deal marks the operator’s first in-person move into the state, and includes the eventual opening of a 30,000-square-foot Caesars Sportsbook retail location. It will become one of the largest free-standing race and sports wagering facilities in the US.
“Raynham Park is in an excellent location in southeast Massachusetts and will be one of just a few retail sports betting locations in the Commonwealth,” said Caesars Digital President Eric Hession.
“It’s great to partner with the Carney family, which has a long history in the community and an exciting vision for a tremendous sports entertainment and pari-mutuel simulcasting facility. We look forward to showcasing the Caesars commitment to world-class experiences through this partnership.”
Caesars plans to open a temporary sportsbook inside the current simulcasting facility before moving into the permanent venue, following regulatory approvals. The sportsbook will feature an “elevated atmosphere fit for a Caesar” as part of a new building, which is scheduled for completion by the middle of 2023.
The operator plans to launch its sportsbook on desktop and be available for download on iOS and Android devices, in addition to in-person wagering.
Raynham Park Owner Chris Carney commented: “Caesars Sportsbook is the strongest retail sports gaming brand in the industry and we are extremely proud to announce our partnership.
“Our sportsbook will be one of the largest sports gaming destinations not only in Massachusetts, but in the United States. With Caesars’ legendary commitment to quality and integrity, Raynham Park will be a world-class venue that will set a new standard for gaming in Massachusetts.”
