Ohio is moving slowly but steadily toward the legalization of sports betting. While state officials held out hope for a 2020 start, it now seems more likely that sometime early into 2021 will be the launching point.
NB: William Hill sports betting is not currently available in Ohio. Sportsbook app may launch soon, promo to be expected.
Sports betting powerhouse William Hill figures to be part of the equation. No sportsbook owns a wider footprint in the USA than William Hill. Already set up with a casino partner in nearby Michigan, it would only be logical for William Hill to enter the Ohio market.
And as it turns out, it will likely prove to be a very seamless move.
All signs in the Ohio sports betting laws point to racetracks and casinos being required as partners for mobile sports betting apps. That being the case, William Hill already is set with an established connection within the state due to its partnership with Eldorado Resorts and Caesars Entertainment.
Eldorado Gaming’s Scioto Downs in Columbus features over 2,200 of the industry’s best games, ranging from penny slots to high limit action. They also offer the experience of live harness horse racing from May–September and year-round simulcast wagering. It’s only natural that William Hill’s sports betting operation will become part of this gaming empire.
In the sports betting business since 1934, British-based William Hill gained a foothold in the USA about six years before the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision that ended the prohibition of sports betting beyond Nevada.
William Hill US was established in 2012, as the company opened sportsbooks in Nevada. Once the Caesars-Eldorado merger is completed and clears all the regulatory hurdles, William Hill will operate sports betting in more than 170 retail locations across 13 states. The William Hill mobile app already is or will be prevalent in the majority of those states.
The William Hill mobile app can be downloaded to any iOS or Android device. Betting lines offered by William Hill include moneylines, spreads, totals, props, parlays, futures and in-play wagering.
William Hill provides action on virtually all sports, including North American staples like the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL.
