The entire range and scope of legal sports betting in the United States is undergoing a dramatic change. Ever since last year’s US Supreme Court ruling that gave individual states the right to control sports betting within their borders, business with existing sportsbooks continues to boom.
Going all the way back to the beginning of sports betting in the US, Nevada was the only legal state in the nation. Led by the Las Vegas Strip and major sportsbooks such as MGM, Westgate, and Caesars, this was and still is the sports betting capital of the world. New Jersey was the next locale to make a major splash in the US sports betting industry. However, Nevada is still far and away the biggest state for betting on sports.
When Does William Hill Sportsbook Expand its Presence in Nevada?
William Hill Sportsbook continues to expand its presence in Nevada as a major player in the sportsbook industry. An agreement is now in place with Golden Entertainment when it comes to its race and sports book operations. William Hill will run the sportsbooks at Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin. It will also oversee operations in two Arizona Charlie’s locations in Las Vegas and Decatur. Future plans involve the rebranding of the Strat Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, which will open next month.
CDC Gaming Reports also identified William Hills’ current role running sportsbook operations in Pahrump Nugget and full-service kiosks at Lakeside and Gold Town casinos. All three locations are part of Golden Entertainment. The expansion plans also include gambling kiosks in close to 80 taverns also owned by Golden. This deal involves third-party distribution across the entire state. Two new acquisitions by Golden are casino properties Edgewater and Colorado Belle in Laughlin. The sportsbook operations in both locations will be overseen by William Hill.
William Hill US CEO is Joe Asher and he was quoted as follows:
“The addition of the four new hotel casinos in Nevada marks an exciting new chapter in our relationship with Golden Entertainment. We look forward to working together to offer sports fans an amazing experience for many years to come in Nevada and elsewhere as opportunities arise.”
Steve Arcana is the COO for Golden and his response echoed the same sentiment in his direct quote below:
“We are excited to continue expanding our relationship with William Hill, which has a proven sports wagering platform not only in Nevada but around the world. We look forward to growing our business in Nevada and other jurisdictions through this partnership.”
Indeed,these recent moves solidify William Hill’s position as the best mobile Sportsbook online in the US market. Other expansion opportunities mentioned by this partnership included the states of Montana and Maryland once sports betting is legalized. Golden already owns the Rocky Gap Casino and Resort in Maryland. It also distributes legal gaming to over 300 locations in Montana.
