I look forward to continuing to work with her and the other members of the board, as well as the management team, to achieve results for guests, team members, and shareholders.

Caesars will report its Q1 Results

Caesars is preparing to release its first quarter results today, 30 April.

Caesars reported that growth in its digital division drove revenue up by 6.5% on an annual basis. Revenue was higher across all divisions, with group revenue hitting $11.53bn (PS9.20bn/EUR10.78bn).

The group also returned to net profit as a result of this growth. The group’s net profit in 2023 was $786m. This is a significant improvement over the $899m loss of last year. The adjusted EBITDA increased by 21.7%, to $2.92bn.

Caesars announced the results and confirmed that it had acquired WynnBet Michigan’s igaming operation. The tribe signed an agreement for the long-term extension of the igaming rights to the Michigan market with Caesars.

Caesars now has access to Sault Tribe’s digital skins. This allows it to run additional brands in Michigan. Customers of WynnBet will be transitioned to Caesars Michigan’s igaming platforms later this year (pending regulatory approvals).

Caesars became the first online operator in North Carolina to offer sports betting on March 1. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians has launched its online sportsbook.
