Friday, September 4th saw William Hill U.S., a leading sports-betting giant, launch its top-rated mobile betting app and website in West Virginia. The Sports Book is available for download on any Android and Apple mobile device, and it is ready for use across the entire Mountain State. With the state’s flexible sports-wagering laws, subscribers can create their accounts literally anywhere within West Virginia. This means that upon successful registration, players can make their stakes anywhere, provided it is within the state’s boundaries. The website version and updated mobile platform offers West Virginians an easy, not to mention fast and seamless betting experience like never before.
The newly launched website and Mobile App are founded on the basis of William Hill’s proprietary platform. It gives gamblers the chance to place their bets on an impressive range of bet types and deep market options, including their favorite professional and collegiate sport events. Players will definitely enjoy the live-scoring game updates that this leading operator offers.
Sports fans and bettors using William Hill’s app will have the luxury of choosing from an array of withdrawal and deposit methods. The registration process is straightforward and most importantly, highly secure. William Hill also revealed that new subscribers who sign up with them will receive an additional $10 and a match-up of $150 up to 100%, as a first-time registration bonus.
William Hill’s Presence in West Virginia
With this recent launch, West Virginians are spoilt for choice; they can choose from four sports betting options. William Hill U.S. first penetrated Mountain State’s online sports-betting market back in 2018. This was after a successful licensing agreement with Hancock’s County Mountaineer casino.
William Hill US
William Hill U.S. is a part of William Hill PLC, which is one of the leading gaming and sport-betting companies globally. William Hill U.S. was founded in Nevada in 2012, and it currently operates in over 150 locations in 12 states, including Washington DC, Bahamas, Florida, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Rhode Island and Mississippi. At the moment, the firm’s mobile betting apps are available in New Jersey, Lowa, Nevada and West Virginia.
This operator also runs the trading services offered by Rhode Island Lottery, yet another mobile sports-betting platform. Additionally, it acts exclusively as the licensed betting provider for an array of casinos in New Mexico and Mississippi. The new launch follows William Hill’s acquisition of CG Technology. With the finalization of this deal, William Hill U.S. will take over the sports-betting business of The Cosmopolitan, Silverton, The Palazzo as well as The Venetian, which are all venues along the Las Vegas Strip.
Sports betting in West Virginia
West Virginia was among the first states to take on sports betting after the official repeal of PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act). Online betting initially went live in 2019, but after a contractual disagreement between two major providers (Delaware North and Miomni Gaming) the mobile app offering the services got suspended. It wasn’t until August that same year that sports-betting in West Virginia resumed. Today, there are a total of four online sportsbooks in the state. These include BetMGM, DraftKings Sports Book, FanDuel Sports Book, and now William Hill U.S., the most recent entry on the list.
