RENO, NEVADA (May 9, 2016) – William Hill, the world’s leading sports betting company, and Eldorado Resorts, Inc., a leading casino entertainment company, have entered in a long-term agreement for William Hill to significantly upgrade and operate the race and sports books at the Silver Legacy and Circus Circus Resort Casinos in Reno.
Coming this football season (subject to regulatory approval) the all-new 7,200 square foot William Hill Race & Sports Book at the Silver Legacy will feature a new sports bar, state-of-the-art video wall technology for viewing of sporting events and live InPlay betting odds. A jumbo high-definition video wall across the width of the sports book will provide a panoramic viewing experience.
The race and sports book at Circus Circus Reno will also be undergoing a major renovation, including upgraded sports viewing with state of the art big screen TVs and a new sports bar and lounge. The Eldorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus have over 220,000 square feet of world class gaming, including the race and sports books and live poker.

William Hill has operated the neighboring Eldorado Resort Casino’s race and sports book since entering the Nevada market in 2012, and a predecessor to William Hill had been operating at the Eldorado for many years prior.
William Hill features Nevada’s largest wagering menu, including the best parlay card payouts in Nevada and live continuous InPlay wagering on football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer.
