The amount is extra interest above market rates the company is offering to pay on $1.18 billion of term loans due in March 2021, being raised through a unit created last year called Caesars Growth Partners, according to data compiled by Bloomberg .

Bloomberg said further Caesars has been struggling to reconcile its debt load with U.S. consumers restraining discretionary spending since it was purchased in a $30.7 billion leveraged buyout put together by Apollo Global Management and TPG Capital at the peak of the last takeover boom in 2008.
