Free Sports Bet Weekend at Caesars Online
Besides being both Valentine’s and President’s Day Weekend, it’s also All Star Weekend. So Caesars Casino & Sports would like to help you celebrate.
Caesars is inviting all registered players to log in this weekend and place a sports bet using the code ALLSTARS25. In return, the casino will match your bet with an offer for an in-play free sports bet in the same amount, up to $25.
How to Participate in This Weekend’s Caesars Casino & Sports Free Sports Bet Offer
Surely you can find some sports event this weekend that you would like to place a small bet on. It could be this Sunday’s All Star Game, a college basketball or hockey game, or an event in another sports like tennis or soccer.
No need to travel to Atlantic City or a New Jersey racetrack because you can place your bet online on CaesarsCasino.com. In return, you will have the opportunity to make a free sports bet either on the same game or another game of your choice. Here’s all you need to do to get started:
- Log into your CaesarsCasino.com account.
- Go to My Bonuses.
- Enter the code ALLSTAR25 and click on “Claim.”
- Place a cash wager on the game of your choice.
You will immediately receive an offer for a free sports bet for the same amount, up to $25.
As soon as you’re ready to make your free bet, simply add an in-play selection to your betting slip on a game already in progress. Then select the free bet icon next to “More Info and Options.”
Additional Terms and Conditions
You can only claim this offer once and you must do so by the specific date indicated on the marketing collateral. In addition, the qualifying cash wager must be for at least the minimum amount listed on the marketing collateral.
Both the qualifying sports bet and the free sports bet must be for a single game. You need to make the free sports bet for the full amount of your offer as well. If you don’t bet the full amount, you will forfeit the unused portion.
You have up to seven days to make the free sports bet from either the time that wagering on that game is allowed or from the time you are awarded the free sports bet, whichever date comes first.
Furthermore, the free bet cannot be one where you have to lay odds greater than -200. Check the marketing collateral for any additional restrictions.
Collecting Free Sports Bet Winnings
Keep in mind that the total cost of both bets includes any applicable surcharge like -.10 on the dollar on a point spread bet or whatever the posted cost is for betting the money line on the favorite.
If you win your cash bet, you will receive back the entire cost of your wager plus the winnings. However, if your free sports bet wins, you will receive only the winnings from the bet, not any part of the wager itself. That is because you’re not the one putting up the money for the wager; the casino is.
In other words, if each bet is in the amount of $10 at -110 odds and you win both bets, you would get back $19.10 on your cash bet (the $10 you bet plus the $9.10 you won), but only $9.10 on your free bet.
In the event you place the free bet on a game that is canceled or ends in a tie unfortunately, it will be treated as a loss. You will not get an opportunity to place another free bet.
Is the Caesars free sports bet offer a good one?
Caesars Casino & Sports is willing to match your cash sports bet dollar for dollar up to $25 with a free sports bet. So, of course, it’s a good offer. You have a chance to double your winnings with no extra risk.
Furthermore, $25 is such a small amount of cash, any player can probably afford it. So even if the marketing collateral allows you to make a smaller qualifying wager, it seems silly to me. You might as well try to get the most bang for your buck you can from this promotion.
Therefore, even though you’re not risking much money on the cash bet and none at all on the free bet, it still makes sense to take the necessary time to study the games and consider your options so you can make a wise choice.
The only criticism I have of this offer is that I do not feel that free bets on games that are canceled or end in a tie should be treated as losing bets. When such bets are made with your own money, the bet is returned. With free bets, the bettor should be given the opportunity to place the same size wager on a different game.
