WILLIAM HILL BECOMES FIRST SPORTS BOOK IN NEVADA TO OFFER VIRTUAL RACING
With William Hill Virtual Racing, It’s Always Post Time!
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (JULY 1, 2016) – William Hill, America’s leading Sports Book operator, has opened wagering on Virtual Racing at two of its Nevada Race & Sports Books.
Combining stunning graphics and the voice of legendary race caller Tom Durkin, William Hill Virtual Racing allows sports bettors to wager on an endless lineup of simulated horse races. With a new race every five minutes, sports book patrons can bet Win, Place, Show, Exactas, and Trifectas on lineups that range from eight to twelve animated horses.
After receiving approval for a field trial from the Nevada Gaming Control Board, William Hill is offering Virtual Racing at the William Hill Race & Sports Books inside the Plaza Casino (Las Vegas) and Silver Sevens Casino (Las Vegas).
William Hill worked diligently with regulators over the past two years to bring Virtual Racing to Nevada. The wagering option is extremely popular with sports bettors across the globe.
“We are excited to be the first Sports Book operator to bring Virtual Racing to Nevada. The addition of Virtual Racing is just another example of how William Hill prides itself on offering the largest and most innovative betting menu,” said Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US. “Being able to have Tom Durkin, horse racing’s best story teller, as our Virtual Racing voice is ‘absolutely sensational’ in itself.”
