Illinois Marks the Sixth State Where William Hill Offers Mobile Sports Betting

ELGIN, ILLINOIS (September 15, 2020) – Today, William Hill US, America’s leading sports book operator, announced the launch of its mobile sports betting app in Illinois, in partnership with Caesars Entertainment’s Grand Victoria Casino.

The William Hill Mobile App is built on a proprietary platform, offering an easy and seamless betting experience that includes props, parlays, futures and In-Play wagering. The app offers action on college and pro sports, with multiple deposit and withdrawal options. Sports fans will also appreciate the enhanced technology features, such as a biometric login and a quick-bet option.

“We’re excited to bring our top-performing mobile app to my hometown state of Illinois,” said Ken Fuchs, President of Digital for William Hill. “We look forward to providing millions of sports fans in the state with the best markets and great service.”

New customers, who open an account and deposit, will be able to place their first wager risk-free, up to $300. If a customer loses their first bet, they will be credited back up to $300 within 72 hours of the bet settlement. For more information, click here.

The William Hill Mobile App is now available for download on any Apple or Android device anywhere in the state. 

William Hill opened its first retail sports book in Illinois earlier this summer at Grand Victoria Casino in Elgin. The William Hill Sports Book features three full-service ticket windows and is open seven days a week. More information can be found here.

William Hill now offers mobile sports betting in six states (Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Nevada, New Jersey and West Virginia) and powers the Rhode Island Lottery mobile app’s trading services.
