By Tim Poole

William Hill has signed an agreement with Golden Entertainment to manage its race and sports betting operations in Nevada, Maryland and Montana.

The two companies already had a partnership in place, with the new agremeent expanding the existing relationship.

Previously, William Hill operated the race and sportsbook at Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Gambling Hall, as well as deposit kiosks at around 80 locations across Nevada.

The new partnership adds several casinos to the agreement, including Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Boulder, as well as increasing the number of William Hill mobile deposit kiosks from 80 to a minimum of 100.

A key aspect of the deal is also the pursuit of sports betting opportunities in Montana and Maryland, subject to legalisation of regulated sports wagering within the states.

Steve Arcana, Golden Entertainment COO, said: “We are excited to expand our current relationship with William Hill, which has a proven sports wagering platform not only in Nevada but around the world.”

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US, said: “Since entering the United States, William Hill has had an excellent relationship with Golden Entertainment and we look forward to continuing it for many years to come in Nevada and elsewhere as opportunities arise.”
