This week it was announced that William Hill has been granted approval to run the sportsbook at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas when it reopens to the public on Wednesday.
William Hill is now owned by Caesars Entertainment and is working to rehab and renovate the casino property, which has been closed since the Covid-19 pandemic. The announcement comes after the San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority was granted the gaming license for the casino.
The licensing is contingent on the installation of a security system at the sportsbook and all of the employees facilitating wagers will have to be employed by William Hill, not the Palms Casino. The book will have six betting kiosks as well as five teller locations.
When the casino reopens, the Palms will be hosting a fireworks show as well as other events to help promote the reopening. Known for its pool and cabanas, the casino has 95,000 square-feet of gaming space and 766 hotels, as well as several restaurants and bars
