William Hill US Partners with Two Iowa Casinos
William Hill US has partnered with two casinos in the state of Iowa to bring sports betting to its residents. The state is expected to have the regulation that permits legal sports gambling soon. William Hill US confirmed that it plans to launch a sportsbook at the hotel and casino complex.
During their legislative session, state lawmakers approved the legalization of sports betting in Iowa. The revised sports gambling law allows Iowa residents to place a wager on both professional and college sports games except those that involve local college teams. The state lawmakers went further by permitting wagering on both retail and digital platforms.
Isle Casino Waterloo was one of the gambling houses in Iowa that received the go-ahead to change a portion of its gaming floor where the sportsbook will be placed. The William Hill US sportsbook will feature eight odds boards and fifteen TV screens. Also, there will be tables that are both standard and high-top for those who wish to watch the games. Details of the sportsbook will be announced once the launch of the property is official.
Isle Casino Waterloo’s Sister Property Also Gets William Hill US Sportsbook
Eldorado Resorts own both the Isle Casino Waterloo and the Bettendorf property. The company has exclusively partnered with William Hill US to manage its sportsbooks. William Hill US will also have an opportunity to be a part of the Eldorado Resorts takeover of the Caesars Entertainment Corp. This venture is expected to be worth $17 billion. The venture is going to create casinos with close to 60 properties around the US.
David Grolman, the President of Retail Operations at Willian Hill US, told the media, in a press release, that William Hill US was happy to build a long relationship with Eldorado Resorts. Mr. Grolman further said that the two Iowa casinos would provide excellent opportunities for bettors in the state.
The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission has been given the task of coming up with a draft of rules that sports betting services will be provided in the state. A public hearing was held earlier this month, and the commission will vote.
