William Hill will launch its 143rd US sportsbook at Eldorado Resorts’ Tropicana Evansville in September, pending approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission. A remodel of the site’s existing 421 Lounge, the facility is slated for an opening in time for football season and marks the first Indiana sportsbook for the bookmaker.
Bettors will have a grandstand view of the sporting action via a 16’ x 9’ ft. video wall, 10 65-inch viewing monitors, and 12 odds boards. The sportsbook will integrate 421’s existing bar while repurposing the lounge to create “the ultimate sports betting experience” for fans. It will be located just off the casino floor, steps away from the entrance to the hotel and Downtown Evansville’s only 24-hour restaurant, The DELI.
“We are excited to continue expanding our relationship with Eldorado Resorts and introducing William Hill to sports fans in Indiana,” said David Grolman, President of Retail Operations for William Hill US. “Tropicana Evansville is a great destination, nestled between Nashville, Louisville and St. Louis, and we look forward to serving guests with our 85 years of sports betting experience.”
Glenn Carano, Senior Vice President of Operations, East Region at Eldorado Resorts, commented: “We are delighted to have William Hill as the official sports book operator at Tropicana Evansville. They are a leader in the sports betting industry and bring years of experience with them. We have no doubt that William Hill’s industry-leading wagering menu and technology will enhance the guest experience which is always the priority at all Eldorado Resorts properties across the country.”
