New William Hill Sports Book to Open in September for Football Season
LAS VEGAS (August 21, 2019) – William Hill is launching its 143rd U.S. sports book at Tropicana Evansville, which is owned by Eldorado Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ: ERI), in September, pending approval by the Indiana Gaming Commission. The sports book, which is a remodel of the current 421 Lounge, is scheduled to open in time for football season and is the first Indiana sports book for William Hill.
The state-of-the-art sports book will feature a 16’ x 9’ ft. video wall, ten 65-inch viewing monitors, and 12 odds boards which will provide sports fans with comfortable places to watch sports with friends and bet on the games.
The William Hill Sports Book will integrate 421’s existing bar while reimagining and transforming the lounge to create the ultimate sports betting experience for fans. The book 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."

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."
The sports book will offer guests and bettors access to William Hill’s mobile app, kiosks, and InPlay wagering menu while they enjoy the casino’s world class restaurants and entertainment.
