William Hill prepared a great surprise for all sports betting fans in the USA. The iconic UK-based bookmaker will open its first-ever betting shop in the very heart of Washington, DC. It seems like the leading operator from the Foggy Albion has big plans for the US market.
William Hills opens its first shop in Washington
Some great news for all local punters in Washington, DC, was announced earlier these days. The eminent bookmaker William Hill opens its first official betting shop in the Capital One Arena, one of the most popular sports and entertaining spots for local residents.
Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill, explained the company’s choice: “We know that Washington is a city of the truly devoted sports fans, and we are thrilled to open our first-ever sports book here. We also want to express our gratitude to Monumental that helped us in working on our new sports book’s concept.”
The opening of the brand new betting shop is scheduled for the fall of 2020. In addition to sports betting, the local punters will be offered to relax and have an awesome time at the betting shop’s food court. The sports book will operate till 11 p.m. The US gamblers from other states obviously feel a bit jealous of the Washington residents who will soon have a chance to evaluate the top-notch services of the outstanding bookmaker. But there is some good news for them too. If the grand opening in Washington has a success, William Hill will open several other shops on the US territory in the nearest future.
While the US punters are more than happy to welcome William Hill in their vicinity, the UK gamblers have all reasons to get upset. These days, William Hill’s executives announced that they decided not to reopen the company’s 119 betting shops in England. The executives explained that it is not profitable to open the shops at the time when the global sport is still on its way to recovery after a 4-month quarantine due to coronavirus disease.
As reported earlier, William Hill was forced to close its land-based spots due to the global quarantine. Still, the UK fans sincerely hoped that the bookmaker would reopen the shops in August. The company’s reps say that they can’t reveal the approximate date of reopening as it all depends on the future prospects of the sports recovering after almost five months on a break.
As one of the frontrunners in the gambling niche, William Hill is well-known to the punters worldwide. The operator works to make sports betting an accessible and pleasant experience for global customers and constantly enlarges its offerings to sports fans. For experienced punters, the name of William Hill is synonymous with trustworthiness and reliability. The bookmaker keeps widening its multi-million audience of devoted users every year.
Good to know that as soon as William Hill arrives in Washington, DC, the US punters will also evaluate the superb offerings by the leading sports betting operator.
