NFL-branded Caesars Football Blackjack is live on Caesars Palace Online Casino and Caesars Sportsbook and Casino in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. That’s what Caesars Digital told Bonus on Feb. 5 — days before the online gambling partner’s biggest event of the year, Super Bowl 2024.
Matt Sunderland — Caesars Digital’s senior vice president and chief iGaming officer — provided a statement in the announcement emailed to Bonus on Feb. 5.
The expansion of unique live dealer content like Caesars Football Blackjack delivers in our mission to bring an elevated experience to our players that they can connect with and enjoy. Adding the official sponsorship lock-up logo and partnership designation, including the NFL Shield to our live dealer content is an exciting first in the partnership we’ve enjoyed with the NFL for years.
The Caesars online casino apps offer live dealer games, with human croupiers dealing cards and throwing dice. Caesars Football Blackjack is the newest addition to offerings like American and European roulette, classic and Infinite Blackjack, baccarat, craps, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Three Card Poker.
As for adding a sports theme to an online casino game, online gambling operators often tell Bonus that sports bettors flip to iGaming periodically during events like the Super Bowl.
Caesars Football Blackjack Is Live
I live in Philadephia, which is one of the locations where Caesars said its new live dealer game is available. While that’s true, it takes a bit of hunting to find it.
During my Feb. 5 search of Caesars Palace Online Casino in Pennsylvania, I found the game by scrolling through the list of “Caesars Exclusives.”
Also, further down the “casino” lobby screen, I did see it as the No. 1 game in the category “Under the Dome.”
Each time I found the icon for Caesars Football Blackjack, I saw a smiling Evolution (Evolution AB (publ) 7,56 +1,61%) dealer placing cards on the felt of an NFL and Caesars Palace-branded table.
Surprisingly, I didn’t see Caesars Football Blackjack listed anywhere in the “New Games” category.
Granted, the game is brand new and may take some time to change game popularity rankings in even Caesars apps in the No. 1 revenue-generating online casino state. Caesars Palace Online Casino gamblers have been wagering on the app since its July 2023 launch. So they may not switch games immediately.
After all, Caesars Digital states that it’s committed to regularly adding new content. So, being “the first and exclusive online casino partner of the NFL,” Las Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment (Caesars Entertainment 41,65 +0,43%) is offering this new online casino game.
Considering the Feb. 11 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs will be in its backyard, why not?
