Sports wagering is live in Maine, and Caesars Entertainment Inc. announced that its flagship sports wagering platform, Caesars Sportsbook, is accepting sports wagers on mobile and desktop in the Pine Tree State. Caesars Sportsbook launches through Caesars’ historic partnership with three of the Wabanaki Nations: the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians, the Mi’kmaq Nation and the Penobscot Nation, furthering Caesars Entertainment’s longtime commitment to supporting Indian gaming.
“Maine sports fans deserve an elevated sports wagering experience that matches the pedigree of sports fandom in New England. The launch of Caesars Sportsbook delivers on that pedigree with a platform built for the modern sports fan 21 and older with exciting ways to wager responsibly on the sports they love. We’d like to thank Gov. Janet Mills and the Maine Legislature for making this launch possible, as well as the Maine Gambling Control Unit for all they have done throughout this process,” Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, said.
“Penobscot Nation is excited to partner with Caesars Sportsbook, the Mi’kmaq Nation and the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians to bring online sports betting to Maine. We chose to partner with Caesars over other companies because of Caesars’ decades-long history of working with Tribal Nations throughout the country, their commitment to Tribal sovereignty and their understanding of our State’s deep history with horse racing. When consumers use the Caesars Sportsbook app they can do so knowing that they are supporting the vast majority of the Wabanaki Nations and a company that operates with respect and a commitment to Tribal Nations and a deep understanding of Mainers,” said Chief Kirk Francis of the Penobscot Nation.
“The Mi’kmaq Nation is proud to launch mobile sports wagering in Maine jointly with the Penobscot Nation, the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians and Caesars Sportsbook. We appreciate the work of the Maine State Legislature, the Governor, and the Maine Gambling Control Unit to bring sports betting to the State in a way that promotes gaming integrity and offers a vitally needed economic opportunity to each of the Wabanaki Nations. The Mi’kmaq Nation is committed to working with its Tribal Nation partners, Caesars Sportsbook and State officials to offer a robust and well-regulated sports betting industry in Maine for the benefit of the Wabanaki Nations, the State, and the public,” said Chief Edward J. Peter-Paul of the Mi’kmaq Nation.
“The Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians is thrilled to offer the first legal online sports wagering in Maine in partnership with the Penobscot Nation, the Mi’kmaq Nation, and Caesars Sportsbook. Our three Wabanaki Nations searched long and hard for a partner who shares Maine values. We found that partner in Caesars Sportsbook. Caesars is committed to helping make all our tribal and non-tribal communities stronger and safer. The revenues from sports wagering will be used by our tribal governments and the State to support law enforcement, health care, housing, and education throughout Maine. Working together, we are stronger,” said Chief Clarissa Sabattis of the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians.

The Cordish Companies and Caesars Entertainment Present $150K in Local Impact and Community Grants to Organizations in Pompano Beach Communities Surrounding ‘The Pomp’
The Cordish Companies and Caesars Entertainment have awarded $150,000 to organizations in the Pompano Beach community through its Community Charitable Funding Grant program. Established to provide valuable resources to communities surrounding The Pomp, a 223-acre world-class destination currently under construction in Pompano Beach, the grants aim to help local organizations in Collier City, Cypress Bend, Palm Aire and Pompano Beach make a significant difference through community revitalization and beautification, traffic and public safety improvements, and community service programs. Cordish Chief Operating Officer Zed Smith, Senior Vice President of Caesars Entertainment Troy Buswell, and members of The Pomp Community Advisory Board presented the grants to recipients at a grantee ceremony, held last week in Pompano Beach.
“The Cordish Companies has been committed to making a difference and creating a better future for those living and working in the communities in which we do business for over century. The recipients of these grants are driving their respective communities forward, making them a great place to live, work, play and visit. We are certain that this additional financial support will go a long way in helping them continue their efforts to revitalize and transform the greater Pompano Beach area,” Zed Smith, Chief Operating Officer of The Cordish Companies, said.
“Caesars Entertainment and Harrah’s Pompano Beach are extremely proud to continue to support local organizations in our community. The passion and dedication of each of our grant recipients creates a positive impact within our community every day,” Troy Buswell, SVP and General Manager of Caesars Entertainment, said.
“The significance of this grant extends beyond mere financial assistance. By involving community members in the grant-delivery process, McArthur’s Own and Salem SDA Church aim to foster a sense of ownership and responsibility among residents. This not only enriches the initiatives that receive funding, but also equips the community with skills and knowledge they can apply in future endeavors. It is McArthur’s Own’s firm belief that the impact of this collaborative effort will be multidimensional—addressing social, economic, and even environmental aspects of community well-being. With its proven expertise in designing and executing impactful programs, McArthur’s Own is confident that this partnership will substantially contribute to a brighter, more inclusive future for Pompano Beach,” Jeanette Gordon, President and CEO of McArthur’s Own, said.
One of the largest developments in South Florida, The Pomp is a 223-acre project currently under construction 35 miles north of Miami and less than 10 miles north of Fort Lauderdale. Once complete, the project — anchored by Live! at The Pomp — will bring together entertainment, dining, hotel, retail, residential, office and lifestyle amenities, alongside the successful Harrah’s Pompano Beach casino, in one world-class destination. The development’s name, The Pomp, honors the local history and pays homage to the beloved former Pompano Park racetrack located on the project site. With the newly remodeled and rebranded Harrah’s Pompano Beach and Live! entertainment anchor at its core, The Pomp will feature 1.3 million square feet of retail and entertainment space, 4000 luxury residential units, two hotels and 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space upon completion.
Along with Live! at The Pomp and Harrah’s Pompano Beach, Topgolf will also anchor the Pompano Beach development with their eighth Florida location. The future Topgolf venue will invite players to enjoy the brand’s technology-driven modern golf experience to play point-scoring golf games in an energetic and fun environment. The venue will feature 102 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays equipped with Topgolf’s signature ball-tracking technology, along with a full-service restaurant, top-shelf drinks, rooftop terrace, a patio, music, private event space, and year-round family-friendly programming. Currently under construction, Topgolf is expected to open late 2023.
In Florida, Cordish was the original development partner of the Seminole Tribe of Florida for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, two of the most successful casino entertainment resorts in the world. Further demonstrating their strong commitment to the State of Florida, Cordish recently opened Vivo!, a 62,000-square-foot dining and entertainment experience in Miami, and will open a 36,000-square-foot immersive dining and entertainment district at The Pointe Orlando, near major theme parks and across the street from the Orange County Convention Center, next year.
