William Hill announces major expansion in United States

3 August 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- William Hill U.S. today announced major expansion plans with the signing of sports betting agreements with 11 casinos in Mississippi and a casino partner in West Virginia. The company is also in discussions with operators about sports betting deals that would cover a further 14 U.S. states.

Subject to regulatory approvals, William Hill will provide sports betting risk management services and its proprietary technology for both retail and on-premises mobile sports betting to the following casinos: Hard Rock Casino Hotel & Casino - Biloxi, Island View Casino Resort (Gulfport), Palace Casino Resort (Biloxi), Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel (Biloxi) and WaterView Casino and Hotel (Vicksburg), in addition to six other casinos in Mississippi. All properties are expected to be live by the end of August pending granting of licenses.

In West Virginia, William Hill will provide retail and mobile/online sports betting to a soon-to-be-announced casino partner. William Hill U.S. is also in advanced discussions with operators about deals that cover casinos in a further 14 states in the U.S. about similar sports betting agreements.

The deals further expand William Hill’s U.S. presence, which already includes sports betting operations in Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey and a race book in Iowa. William Hill has also combined forces with IGT for the Rhode Island Lottery Sports Betting RFP. If IGT is awarded the contract, William Hill will supply its operational expertise, risk management, and trading data to support the operation of sports betting in the state.

Commenting on the news William Hill CEO Philip Bowcock said: “It has been an excellent start for us since PASPA was overturned. We have built on our existing business in Nevada which is number one and growing and in Delaware where we are risk manager for the entire state. We are now the early market leader in New Jersey where our mobile app will launch within weeks and we expect to be market leader in Mississippi with these 11 casino agreements. The team continue to engage in discussions that cover a further 14 states and they are doing a tremendous job.”

William Hill U.S. CEO Joe Asher commented, “We have had a great start in New Jersey and our team is working hard to launch our mobile product there, as well as getting ready to go live in Mississippi, West Virginia and elsewhere, subject to regulatory approval. There is a lot happening and we are very proud of our team.”
