May 4, 2021 |

Caesars Entertainment Inc. raked in $1.7 billion in net revenues during the first quarter, more than three times what it had made in the same period the year prior.

The Reno-based casino operating company closed various deals in the first three months of 2021, including the $4 billion acquisition of William Hill PLC and an expanded relationship with the NFL that named Caesars one of three official sports betting partners.

Caesars saw a $423 million net loss in the quarter, compared with a net loss of $173 million the same period the year prior. In the Las Vegas market, its same store revenues fell 39.5 percent year-over-year.

CEO Tom Reeg said the pace of vaccinations across the country, as well as consumers’ willingness to resume “more normal behavior,” helped boost the company’s performance.
