Caesars Entertainment partnered with the Arizona Diamondbacks to open the Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field, the baseball team’s home stadium, following an opening event on 21 June.
The Caesars venue is 22,300 square feet, two stories tall and is located adjacent to Chase Field in downtown Phoenix.
Caesars Sportsbook is now the largest freestanding sportsbook in Arizona and the largest retail sportsbook to partner with a major sports stadium nationwide. The venue features a total of nine betting windows, 13 self-service betting kiosks and has a capacity of 425 people.
The Caesars Sportsbook app integrates mobile sports betting with Caesar’s industry-leading program, ‘Caesar’s Rewards’, where every wager placed on the app rewards the bettor with Tier credits and Reward credits. These credits can be used to unlock experiences including VIP experiences with Diamondback stars at Chase Field or the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.
Guy Fieri is one of the most well-known celebrity chefs globally, the star of multiple award-winning cooking shows. His DTPHX Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook marks the celebrity chef's first-ever full-service restaurant in Arizona. It is led locally by Executive Chef Kayla Laasko, who brings experience from The Barking Bodega, Desert Diamond Casino and the Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa.
Fieri has worked with Caesars on multiple occasions and is excited to open in Arizona. He stated: "I've worked with the Caesars team for nearly a decade opening restaurants all over the country together. They are the best of the best. The idea of bringing this next-level restaurant concept to Arizona, a place where I have showcased more than 30 restaurants through 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' over the years, was a no-brainer for me. Thank you to the D-backs and Caesars for making it happen."
Caesars Digital Co-President Eric Hession said: "We're extremely proud to bring Caesars Sportsbook and Guy Fieri's Kitchen + Bar to Chase Field and Downtown Phoenix. This destination provides sports bettors and non-sports bettors, locals and visitors alike, with an experience they can't find anywhere else. Thank you to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Guy Fieri for making this possible."
Derrick Hall CEO and President of the Diamondbacks, matched their enthusiasm, saying: "What an incredible day for our fans, sports enthusiasts, guests and especially for our organization. We are proud to partner with Caesars Entertainment and Guy Fieri, to bring a year-round first-class sportsbook, restaurant and event space to downtown Phoenix.
“Everything about this dynamic venue, from the food to the design to the service, has been meticulously planned for an unmatched guest experience."
