The Mannings are a dynasty in the sports world. According to a blurb in Lars Anderson's book The Mannings: The Fall and Rise of a Football Family, "What the Kennedys are to politics, the Mannings are to football." The family has such a great reputation that Caesars Sportsbook is signing the iconic members to the sports betting company. Caesars Sportsbook is expanding, which only makes it fitting that Archie, Peyton, Eli, and Cooper Manning join the empire. As you're reading this, the Mannings will already be featured in advertising as well as appearing in commercials and paving the way at live events.
"This isn't the typical partnership between a sports betting company and major talent," Chris Holdren, co-president of Caesars Digital, said. "We're welcoming the most acclaimed family in football history to be integrated holistically into the Caesars family. 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."
Fans will be ecstatic to interact with the Mannings thanks to the industry-leading loyalty program, Caesars Rewards. The program has made it possible to do so, and this could lead to an increase in memberships and even more opportunities for the Mannings. Members will also earn Tier Credits and Reward Credits. All fun aside, gaming responsibility should always be at the forefront. The Mannings are perfect ambassadors for that, and fans will never be short of receiving such creativity and expertise.
The Mannings dominated on the field, no doubt about that. They possessed that self-control that's necessary to have in the sports world. Now, they're sharing that aspect with bettors in the gaming world. Bettors must always be in control of their coins (that's what millennials often refer to their money as—coins. Ha!). But seriously, it's something to be aware of. The Caesars Sportsbook app has responsible gaming tools as well as self-imposed time limits, deposit limits, and spending limits. Stretch those coins, y'all!
Becoming a quarterback in the NFL is definitely a Manning thing—they've managed to keep this going for 35 seasons. Archie, Peyton, and Eli altogether played for 48 years, 653 games, four Super Bowl championships, 20 Pro Bowls, 152,874 passing yards, and 1,030 passing touchdowns. Archie may have retired 37 years ago, but he's the second-leading passer in New Orleans Saints history. Geaux black & gold! Peyton has been named NFL's MVP five times, two more than any other player in league history. What a guy! From his time in New York, Eli owns every passing record and has been named Super Bowl MVP multiple times. The Mannings got it like that.
The Mannings are not short of achievements off the field. Not only were Peyton and Eli recognized for their merit on and off the field, they were also the only brothers to be bestowed the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, which is the most prestigious honor in the league. The family is quite charitable, and Caesars made a commitment to supporting their initiatives. The city and the Mannings have a history together. Archie was starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for 10 years, and the brothers had quite mentionable high school football careers here. Most of you already recognize The Mannings for their involvement in the community. This expounds on the relationship between Caesars and the family, for the company operates the Mannings Sports Bar & Grill out of Harrah's New Orleans.
"We're excited to partner with the team at Caesars Sportsbook," Peyton Manning said in a press release. "We're looking forward to interacting with their customers who love sports and love football, and we know Caesars has a lot of fun initiatives planned. They place a strong emphasis on community impact, and we appreciate their support of causes that are important to us."
Caesars Sportsbook currently runs in 20 states and jurisdictions, and 14 of them are mobile. The mobile app provides its users with wagering options, which include live in-game betting and safe ways to deposit and withdraw funds with no fuss. Caesars Sportsbook is partnered with the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and other individual teams.
