Caesars Sportsbook is teaming up with the first family of football to further expand its gambling empire.
Eli, Peyton, Archie and Cooper Manning signed a “historic first-of-its-kind partnership between a sports betting company and an iconic sports family,” according to a Caesars Entertainment news release.
Beginning Tuesday, the Mannings are going to be in advertising spots and make live event and commercial appearances
The four quarterbacks will also serve as prominent ambassadors for Caesars’ focus on responsible gaming.
In a statement, Peyton Manning said the family is “looking forward to interacting with (Caesars Sportsbook) customers who love sports and love football.”
“They place a strong emphasis on community impact, and we appreciate their support of causes that are important to us,” he said.
Not a ‘typical partnership’ between Caesars Sportsbook, Mannings
Caesars Sportsbook and the Mannings will offer fan engagement opportunities made possible for sports bettors through the Caesars Rewards loyalty program.
Bettors earn tier and reward credits with each sports wager. Users will have the chance to interact directly with the Mannings in various ways through upcoming activations
“This isn’t the typical partnership between a sports betting company and major talent,” said Chris Holdren, co-president of Caesars Digital. “We’re welcoming the most acclaimed family in football history to be integrated holistically into the Caesars family.”
Responsible gaming is a go-to play
The Mannings will highlight the resources that Caesars Sportsbook provides bettors to control their play.
The app includes responsible gaming tools, including self-imposed time limits, deposit limits and spending limits.
Caesars said the Mannings are “drawing a parallel to the importance of staying in control — like they did on the football field every Sunday.”
“Archie, Peyton, Eli and Cooper are extraordinary people who are champions of their communities and we’re honored to partner with such a prestigious group of individuals,” Holdren said.
Checking the Manning resumes
The Mannings’ football credentials are incredible.
For 35 of the NFL’s 102 seasons, there was a Manning family member starting at quarterback in the league.
During their NFL careers, Archie, Peyton, and Eli combined for 48 seasons and 653 games. But this is just a small sampling. Check out this list:
- Four Super Bowl championships
- 20 Pro Bowls
- 152,874 passing yards
- 1,030 passing touchdowns.
Archie, who retired 37 years ago, is the second-leading passer in New Orleans Saints history.
Peyton, who starred on the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos, is a five-time NFL Most Valuable Player. No other NFL player has won the award more than three times.
Eli owns almost every franchise passing record from his time with the New York Giants. He is one of five players to be named Super Bowl MVP multiple times.
