The combined Caesars-Eldorado business, now trading as Caesars Entertainment, brought in $6.10bn in 2020, down 42.5% from 2019’s combined revenue, and posted a $2.72bn loss with both pre-merger segments hit by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The results cover a year in which regional casino operator Eldorado Resorts acquired Caesars Entertainment, with the new business then taking the Caesars name.

The combined business made $3.93bn through regional operations in 2020, down 35.5%. Las Vegas revenue fell more sharply, by 54.8% to $1.77bn, while international and online revenue was $384m, down 35.5%.

The operator’s full breakdown of financial results covered only the legacy Eldorado business for up until July 20, 2020, and then the combined business from that point on. Counting revenue in this way, the business brought in $3.47bn, up 37.4% year-on-year, thanks mostly to the extra revenue generated from the acquisition. 

Of the remaining $2.63bn of the combined business’s revenue, $2.49bn came from the legacy Caesars business, and the remaining $138m came from properties Eldorado divested to complete the transaction.
