Uk-based bookmaker William Hill is strategically expanding in the newly regulated US sports betting markets after the US Supreme Court legalized sports gambling last year.
In a recent announcement bookmaker, William Hill has confirmed that they are making their debut in the Indiana sports betting market. The company will be launching a land-based sportsbook at Tropicana Evansville which is owned and operated by Eldorado Resorts. The Sportsbook would be ready for launch in September this year.
While the sportsbook is still subject to regulatory approval, it is expected that players will be able to wager on sporting events before the start of this year’s NFL season.
William Hill has said that the casino’s existing 421 Lounge will be remodeled to include a 16’x9’ foot video wall. The sportsbook will also host 65-inch viewing monitors and 12 odds boards.
David Grolman, President of Retail Operations for William Hill US said: “We are excited to continue expanding our relationship with Eldorado Resorts and introducing William Hill to sports fans in Indiana. Tropicana Evansville is a great destination, nestled between Nashville, Louisville and St. Louis, and we look forward to serving guests with our 85 years of sports betting experience.”
Glenn Carano, Senior Vice President of Operations, East Region at Eldorado Resorts, Inc. said, “We are delighted to have William Hill as the official sportsbook operator at Tropicana Evansville. They are a leader in the sports betting industry and bring years of experience with them.
“We have no doubt that William Hill’s industry-leading wagering menu and technology will enhance the guest experience which is always the priority at all Eldorado Resorts properties across the country.”
Earlier this year in May, sports gambling was officially legalized in Indiana after Gov. Eric Holcomb signed the sports betting legalization bill.
