William Hill US receives approval on five new Nevada sportsbooks

By Matthew Enderby

The Nevada regulator has given William Hill US preliminary approval to add five more sportsbooks in the state.

Based in Nevada, the operator will take over sports betting activities at four casinos run by Golden Entertainment and at privately-owned Jerry’s Nugget, a North Las Vegas Casino.

Should the operator receive final approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission on 24 January, it will have 114 sports betting locations across the Silver State.

William Hill has a long-standing partnership with Golden Entertainment. The operator runs the sportsbook at Pahrump Nugget and has kiosks at Golden Entertainment venues in Nevada, Maryland and Montana.

The Golden Entertainment sportsbooks due to be taken over by William Hill are at the Stratosphere in Las Vegas, two Arizona Charlie’s properties in Las Vegas and on the Boulder Highway and the Aquarius in Laughlin; all were acquired by Golden Entertainment in 2017.

Gambling Insider reached out to William Hill for comment.
