Tom Reeg, the chief executive officer of Caesars Entertainment said,

“The addition of daily fantasy sports fits seamlessly with our strategic vision for mobile and online sports. SuperDraft Incorporated’s innovative multiplier game mode is unique in the marketplace and we believe it offers a tremendous opportunity to strengthen our position in the sports gaming landscape.”

It would also give them the ability to earn credits that can be redeemed for online experiences and rewards. These rewards can be redeemed at any of the 30 properties owned by Caesars in the US and Canada.
