The growing Tennessee sports betting market has added another operator. William Hill Sportsbook went live in the Volunteer State with just about a week to spare before the 2021 NCAA Tournament. That means that college hoops handicappers in TN will have another sportsbook with which to line shop.
Five for Fighting Over Tennessee Sports Betting Dollars
William Hill’s appearance in the Tennessee market now gives the state five operators, with nationally-recognized brands DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook to go with globally-recognized names in BetMGM Sportsbook and now William Hill Sportsbook. Action 24/7 also operates in the state, but is exclusive to Tennessee.
The William Hill domino may start a chain reaction of events, as WynnBET and Churchill Downs Inc. under the TwinSpires Sportsbook name, are likely to join the fun soon as well.
William Hill Sportsbook has been around since the 1930s with a rich history in London, but has been in the United States for less than a decade. William Hill US began in 2012. Tennessee is the 11th state for William Hill and more are certainly coming.
William Hill Keeps Growing
There was a big splash in the sports betting business when Eldorado Resorts came to an agreement with Caesars Resorts and the Caesars sportsbooks became William Hill sportsbooks last year, so it is no surprise to see William Hill continuing to grow and develop a larger market presence.
To celebrate its growth, William Hill is offering up to a $2,021 Risk-Free Bet for new sign-ups in Tennessee. That means that if you lose your first bet on an amount up to $2,021, you’ll get a refund in the form of bet credits. The Free Bet must be used within seven days.
Sports Betting in Tennessee Is A Big Success
Tennessee has only had sports betting since November 1, but the state has taken in close to three quarters of a billion dollars in bets across just four operators. Tennessee is an all-mobile, all-online state without retail gaming facilities and the state’s success just shows how much people love the convenience of betting online or from their phones.
William Hill gives Tennesseans another option and at a great time with March Madness on the horizon.
