Because when there’s a new state entering the legal sports betting game in the USA, you can be sure that William Hill will soon become a presence within the state.
William Hill Online Sportsbook in Virginia?
The site is not up in Virginia yet. No online sportsbook app permeates the U.S. market as efficiently and effectively as William Hill. The sports betting company moves fast: they entered into a multi-year agreement with ESPN. The new deal includes link integrations from ESPN’s digital platforms to sportsbooks from Caesars Entertainment’s sports betting partner, William Hill. Yes, the Will Hill became the exclusive sports betting operator for Caesars Entertainment, following the merger of Caesars with Eldorado Resorts. William Hill will operate in more than 170 retail locations across 13 states.
This is of interest to Virginia sports bettors because also last week, Caesars Entertainment submitted a list of proposed changes to the Virginia sports betting laws to the Virginia Lottery, regulator of sports betting within the state. Gaming companies were invited by the VL to submit these proposed changes to the law by Sept. 15 and this move would certainly appear to indicate that Caesars, and thus William Hill, have their eyes on operating in the state.
Caesars has proposed to construct a $400 million casino in Danville, Va. that would open in 2023. A referendum on this proposal will be voted on Nov. 3.
The VL will begin accepting applications for sports betting licenses on Oct. 15. The state expects to award between 4-12 licenses. Anticipation is that legal sports betting will launch in Virginia early in 2021. William Hill and other sports gambling operators are expected.
The William Hill mobile app in general can be downloaded on any iOS or Android device. Betting lines offered by William Hill include props, parlays, futures and in-play wagering.
William Hill provides action on sports including the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL.
There are no major pro sports franchises located in Virginia. The state is limited to minor-league baseball, hockey and soccer teams, as well as an indoor football franchise.
College sports wagering will be prohibited in Virginia and that could hinder the bottom line at online sportsbooks. Virginia features 14 NCAA Division One men’s basketball teams, led by the 2019 NCAA champion Virginia Cavaliers and six FCS football schools.
William Hill VA app is not live. Promo code and bonus are not available ATM.
To get an idea of what Virginia sports bettors can expect once William Hill Sports arrives on the scene, Illinois was the latest state to launch the William Hill app. New players there are being offered a 100 percent match worth up to $300. This bonus is awarded in the form of a risk-free first bet.
