Potentially the largest gaming company in the world, Caesars Entertainment operates 50 casinos across 13 different states.
With an eclectic display of offerings ranging from food and hotel services, to gaming and sports betting, Caesars is valued at just under $7 billion.
Thanks to a recent purchase of a stake in SuperDraft, a fantasy sports platform, NFL season could see Caesars Entertainment stocks rising even more.
At time of writing Caesars Entertainment stocks are $87.

From humble casino company to thriving sportsbook provider, stock Penn National became hot seemingly overnight following its acquisition of Barstool Sportsbook.
