Landmark Partnership is first to align casino with both an NFL and NBA team

 

Saints and Pelicans President Dennis Lauscha joined with Caesars Entertainment Chief Experience Officer, Michael Marino and Harrah’s New Orleans Assistant General Manager, Kathryn Jenkins to announce that Harrah’s New Orleans will be designated as “An Official Casino Partner of the New Orleans Saints” and “A Proud Casino Partner of the New Orleans Pelicans.”

The multi-year partnership, beginning in 2019, brings together three notable New Orleans entertainment brands. The partnership includes unique opportunities for Harrah’s to bring the Saints and Pelicans experience to life. By doubling down on the Saints, Harrah’s will be able to develop customized experiences, in game features, a Saints branded area on property and be designated as an official post-game destination.

“We are proud to align ourselves with a brand such as Harrah’s New Orleans Casino that is an industry leader not only nationally but on a local level as well,” said New Orleans Saints and Pelicans President Dennis Lauscha. “Located in the Heart of Downtown New Orleans, Harrah’s vision for development and commitment to the city mirror that of the Saints and Pelicans and we could not be happier about this partnership.”

“We have been entertaining guests and our community in New Orleans for almost twenty years,” said Kathryn Jenkins. “With this partnership Harrah’s continues our commitment to our local teams and becomes an essential part of the game day experience. From activations, to memorable events, fans of the Black and Gold will be able to call Harrah’s New Orleans their game day headquarters.”

Professional sports and world class entertainment has always been a core value of Caesars Entertainment, the parent company of Harrah’s New Orleans.

“This announcement, along with our previous announced partnerships with the Las Vegas Raiders, the Baltimore Ravens, the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA and the New Jersey Devils of the NHL, demonstrates Caesars’ strong commitment to the professional sports fan experience,” said Michael Marino. “New Orleans has a rich heritage in sports, and we are excited to further enhance the game day experience. We look forward to many exciting seasons.”

Mobile Betting Bill Fails to Progress Through New York AssemblyReading Time: 1 minute

 

Senator Joseph Addabbo’s mobile betting bill has failed to progress through the New York Assembly. The legislative session saw S17 fail to progress beyond the Assembly Standing Committee on Codes.

Addabbo tweeted that he saw no clear reason why the state could not implement mobile sports betting in 2019. Failure to do so would see the state miss out on around $75m in revenue, funding for education, and both job creation and retention.

“NY will be stuck like a disabled car on the shoulder, while we allow an illegal sports betting business in our state thrive and idly watch other neighboring states pass us up with enormous revenue gains from mobile sports betting,” Addabbo said.

Eldorado Resorts Inc., the US based casino operator, has agreed to merge with Caesars Entertainment Corp through a $17.3 billion cash and stock deal.

The deal, which is expected to be announced soon, values Caesars at close to $13 a share. The combined company’s ownership would be split roughly between Eldorado and Caesars shareholders.

An Eldorado spokesman said the company did not comment on rumours or speculation. Caesars did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The combination of the two companies would create a serious competitor to larger casino industry players, such as Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts Ltd and MGM Resorts International.
