Puerto Rico’s Casino Metro announced that it has opened a sportsbook featuring Caesars Sportsbook and ” MetroBets With Caesars Sportsbook“.
MetroBets and Caesars Sportsbook will launch retail sports betting for casino guests. The operator plans to launch its mobile app within the next year subject to regulatory approvals.
The agreement opens the casino’s over 7,000-square foot sportsbook in San Juan with 12 betting windows and three self-service kiosks. There are plans to expand the facility with more than 25 LED TVs. The construction is scheduled to complete in the second quarter 2023.
“We are proud of the launch of “MetroBets with Caesars Sportsbook”, at Casino Metro. This brand has generated more than 30 jobs for our workforce,” stated Ismael Vegas, general manager, Casino Metro.
Our operation has always been innovative and the foray into sports betting was a natural one. We were able to reach this partnership with Caesars because of its complexity.
MetroBets and Caesars Sportsbook launched a casino at Casino Metro. They plan to grow to more customers through satellite wagering in other locations throughout the commonwealth.
Eric Hession is the President of Caesars Digital. He said: “As Caesars Digital pursued sports betting Puerto Rico within its unique framework, I wanted to align with a best possible partner that would offer deep, localized market knowledge. Casino Metro is a trusted brand in Puerto Rico and has an extensive customer base. We were able to find that partner.
Last month, the Puerto Rico Gaming Commission granted sports betting licenses for seven businesses – including three sportsbooks as well as four service providers.
Other than Caesars and Casino Metro the licensees were Ballers Puerto Rico Sportsbook and Continent 8 Technologies PR and Liberman Media Group Gaming. Swish Analytics Puerto Rico and US Integrity also received licenses.
