First William Hill added The D to their growing list of sportsbooks in Las Vegas. Then William Hill added the huge sportsbook at The Plaza (see pics and review at Vegas Chatter). Next up William Hill will be a part of the soon-to-be-opened Downtown Grand.
The next major casino project to open in Las Vegas will feature a new William Hill Sports Book under a long term agreement with Fifth Street Gaming, developer and operator of the Downtown Grand Casino & Hotel. The property is expected to open in September…
…The new sports book will have a William Hill storefront and dedicated entrance on Downtown3rd, with an outdoor look similar to William Hill’s 2,400 betting shops in the UK.
William Hill is an independent sportsbook operator similar to Cantor Gaming. They operate sportsbooks at quite a few casinos in Las Vegas and all of Nevada. In addition they have sports betting kiosks in a variety of bars across the state along with an easy to use app. They can essentially facilitate sports betting anywhere it’s legal.
While Cantor Gaming targets the high-end customer William Hill is more focused on the every day gambler. Neither approach is right or wrong – it’s just different. If you like free drinks, head to a William Hill sportsbook. If you want to bet 5 figures, you can head to a Cantor Gaming sportsbook.
Downtown Grand seems as if it will be an awesome casino once it opens. Besides this announcement and outdoor gaming everything inside the casino and hotel seem like it will be a great addition to downtown Vegas.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that sports betting (kiosk & sportsbook) at Four Queens, Golden Gate and Binions in Downtown Vegas is also done with William Hill. Those casinos just have kiosks, not actual sportsbooks.
