This 21 and older policy applies to all sports wagering operations conducted by Caesars Sportsbook in North Carolina, including on the Caesars Sportsbook app and at both Caesars destinations in the state.

Caesars also enforces a comprehensive annual Responsible Gaming training program for all Caesars Entertainment and Caesars Digital Team Members. The program provides specialized education for Responsible Gaming Ambassadors across the Enterprise who help identify and assist guests who may not be playing responsibly.
