By Violeta Prockyte

William Hill US has announced the launch of its mobile sports betting app in Illinois. The launch is the result of a partnership between the sports betting operator and Caesars Entertainment’s Grand Victoria Casino. According to the released statement: “Illinois marks the sixth state where William Hill offers mobile sports betting.” 

The William Hill Mobile App will include props, parlays, futures and in-play wagering. It supports college and professional sports, and will include multiple ways to deposit or withdraw the money. William Hill said there will be enhanced features, such as a biometric login and a quick-bet option. 

President of digital for William Hill, Ken Fuchs, expressed his excitement to introduce a “top-performing mobile app” to Illinois. He said: “We look forward to providing millions of sports fans in the state with the best markets and great service.” 

Since the start of September, William Hill has launched in three states. West Virginia went live on 4 September, partnered with Mountaineer Casino in New Cumberland. Colorado’s app was launched on 10 September. 

Earlier this summer, the company opened “its first retail sports book in Illinois” at Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin. However, in-person registration is currently suspended in the state following an order from Governor J.B. Pritzker.
