William Hill Launch Nevada Drive-thru Sportbook Sign-ups

William Hill is partnering with four of its casino partners in Nevada to allow sports fans across Las Vegas and Reno to build and deposit into mobile sportsbook accounts.

Starting a series of drives by sign-ups around a quartet of properties ahead of UFC 249, from Jacksonville, Florida, the sports betting firm has launched its latest promotion under the name ‘Watch the Fights on Us.’

Accessible for both current and new mobile sports customers in William Hill Nevada, patrons who have previously registered for an account are eligible for a $65 cash bonus when they wager a total of $249 on UFC 249 to cover the cost of the Saturday pay-per-view event.

Sports fans interested in signing up need to download the app in advance, before following some initial steps, including taking a photo of their current state-issued identification. By taking a selfie with the app to check their identity, patrons can complete the contactless registration process upon arrival at one of four drive thru locations.

William Hill, who boasts 113 race and sportsbook operations in Nevada, establishes the drive-through locations at TA Running Nevada’s Alamo Casino on Friday 8 May and Saturday 9 May, the Golden Entertainment pair of Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Sierra Sid’s Casino.

William Hill US CEO Joe Asher said: “Ahead of the largest sporting events of the month, we wanted a safe way to meet the current demand from our customers. It sure is nice to have some American sports to bet on.”

William Hill, the country’s new collaboration, has seen a link-up inked with International Game Technology through its subsidiary of IGT Global Solutions Corporation to launch improved versions of Rhode Island’s mobile app and sportsbook website offers.

After initially inking alongside the Rhode Island Lottery in a November 2018 agreement to open New England’s first sportsbooks at Twin River Casino and Tiverton Casino, the first edition of the region’s mobile app went live in September 2019.

Driven by the IGT PlaySports Technology and available via iOS, Android and sportsbetrhodeisland.com, Ocean State bettors can now use “a more streamlined experience featuring an elevated interface, an expanded wagering menu, and an additional way for patrons to fund their accounts”.
