Caesars Sportsbook is now the official sports betting partner of the Indianapolis 500 and Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). 

The partnership means Caesars Sportsbook will sponsor the remaining IMS races during the 2022 season, which started with the GMR Grand Prix on Friday.

Caesars also will have the first exclusive betting lounge at IMS.

The Caesars Sportsbook Lounge at Pagoda Plaza will be opened to fans on practice and race days during May. Complimentary food and drink will be available at the site. The lounge also will feature live entertainment and racing games. Branded giveaways will be handed out during every race. 

‘Unique Experiences’ Available

With this partnership, Caesars Sportsbook will have access to IMS logos and digital and social media assets. 

Also, exclusive VIP speedway experiences will be available to Caesars Rewards members.

“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indy 500 are iconic American sports traditions,” Eric Hession, co-president of Caesars Digital said. “Partnering with one of racing’s most iconic venues and ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ provides our customers with unique experiences through Caesars Rewards.”

Caesars branding also will be displayed throughout the speedway, along with video board placements, public address announcements and program ads promoting Caesars Sportsbook.

Bet Credit For First-Time Deposits

To celebrate the 106th running of the Indy 500, Caesars Sportsbook is offering $106 in bet credit to new customers who make a first-time deposit of $20. This offer is in addition to access to the Caesars Sportsbook Lounge at Pagoda Plaza. 

The Caesars Sportsbook app is available for download on iOS or Android devices.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway President J. Douglas Boles said IMS is  “extremely excited” about the partnership with Caesars.

“This is another reason to look forward to an epic and historic Month of May at IMS,” he said. 

This year’s Indy 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 29.
