William Hill US Prepares To Launch In Florida With Casino Miami

William Hill US is preparing to launch the first Florida operation in its 85-year history, with the opening of a William Hill-branded race book at Casino Miami scheduled. The race book is scheduled to open with a state-of-the-art viewing facility in December 2019 pending regulatory approvals.

The renovation will modernise the 2,300 square feet space next to the poker room of the casino and will include 10 50-inch TV screens as well as a 30 ft video wall for racing fans to watch a variety of tracks at the same time. A mixture of high-top tables with plush chairs and 30 race carrels will be included.

Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US said: “Casino Miami is a great location with a modern space where we have created a first-class experience for all racing fans in the area. We look forward to working with Phil Ruffin and his team to enable our customers to bet on races from across the country.”

The race book will provide simulcast pari-mutuel wagering at its launch. Bettors will be able to watch and wager from around the world on big Thoroughbred, Harness, and Greyhound tracks as well as Jai Alai.
