Full Sportscast: Caesars becomes first NFL casino sponsor, VGK eye power play improvement
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
The NFL is partnering with Caesars Entertainment as its first official casino sponsor, but the multiyear deal does not include sports betting or fantasy football.
The arrangement announced Thursday begins with this weekend's playoffs and is worth $30 million annually for three years, a person with knowledge of the agreement tells The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not announced specific terms.
Caesars will draw on its properties, celebrity chefs, music artists and other entertainment platforms to provide NFL fans with "unique experiences."
The Vegas Golden Knights, 1-12 on the power play in their last five games, practice power play drills Thursday.
The Golden Knights face the Ducks in Anaheim Friday night.
This will mark Vegas' first visit to Anaheim this season.
At home, Vegas defeated the Ducks in both their meetings.
