Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Casino, Golden Entertainment

Golden Entertainment Inc and William Hill have announced a deepening of its already existing relationship, to encompass further operations in more territories within the United States.

Currently the bookmaker operates the race and sportsbook at Golden’s Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Gambling Hall, in addition to deposit kiosks at approximately 80 wholly-owned taverns, and third party distributed gaming locations, throughout Nevada.

Via the expanded partnership, an extension is to be undertaken to include race and sportsbook operations at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower (pictured right), Arizona Charlie’s Decatur and Arizona Charlie’s Boulder in Las Vegas, in addition to Aquarius Casino Resort in Laughlin, Nevada.

Furthermore, William Hill is to also continue its operations at Edgewater Casino and Colorado Belle Casino Resort in Laughlin, after Golden finalises the acquisition of the properties in the first quarter of next year.

Via the new agreement, there will be a provision of a minimum of 100 William Hill mobile deposit kiosks at gaming organisation’s wholly-owned taverns, and third party distributed locations, within the Silver State.

“Since entering the United States, William Hill has had an excellent relationship with Golden Entertainment, and we look forward to continuing it for many years to come in Nevada and elsewhere as opportunities arise,” commented Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US.

Furthermore, both parties are to also pursue sports wagering opportunities within both Montana and Maryland, subject to legislation enabling such activities within these states being enacted.

Golden currently operates distributed gaming across Montana in approximately 300 locations, and owns Rocky Gap Casino Resort in Maryland.

Steve Arcana, COO of Golden Entertainment, added: “We are excited to expand our current relationship with William Hill, which has a proven sports wagering platform not only in Nevada but around the world.

“We look forward to growing our business in Nevada and other jurisdictions through this partnership.”

William Hill is expected to begin operating Golden Entertainment’s additional Nevada race and sportsbooks by December of this year, subject to receiving required regulatory approvals.
