London-listed bookmaker William Hill expects to launch its 143rd US sportsbook in September at Eldorado Resorts’ Tropicana Evansville Casino.
The sportsbook is scheduled to open in time for the new NFL season, which begins September 5th, subject to necessary approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission.
The William Hill sportsbook will feature a 16x9 ft. video wall, ten 65-inch viewing monitors and 12 odds boards to enable fans to watch sports and bet on the games through the William Hill mobile app and in-venue kiosks.
“We are excited to continue expanding our relationship with Eldorado Resorts and introducing William Hill to sports fans in Indiana,” said David Grolman, president of retail operations at William Hill US. “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, SVP of operations - East Region at Eldorado Resorts, commented: “We are delighted to have William Hill as the official sports book 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.”
