Golden Entertainment recruits William Hill to present its flagship sportsbook

Las Vegas’ Stratosphere is celebrating the opening of a new sportsbook, which has been debuted in collaboration with William Hill.

The Golden Entertainment owned Stratosphere Hotel, Casino and SkyPod features “the latest betting technology, a spacious setting and a 110-foot wraparound high-resolution LED screen with 12 additional HDTVs where fans can watch all of their favourite sporting events”.

The 88 seat sportsbook, that also contains an additional 98 seats in its view lounge which overlooks the new entity, offers craft cocktails and small bites, with flat screen TVs for sports viewing and convenient access to the sportsbook for betting.

“The William Hill Sports Book at The Strat is now Golden Entertainment’s flagship sportsbook, and we couldn’t be happier to see it come to fruition,” commented executive vice president and chief operating officer of Golden Entertainment, Steve Arcana. “This opening is a key element in our renovations and upgrades here at The Strat, and we look forward to working with William Hill at our additional properties in the future.”

In celebration of the opening, which has also coincided with the March Madness college basketball tournament, William Hill is also hosting a limited-time promotion at the property.

“Our friends at Golden Entertainment have done a great job with the new, state-of-the-art sportsbook at The Strat,” said CEO of William Hill US, Joe Asher. “It is something that sports fans absolutely have to check out during the tournament.”

Golden Entertainment recently emphasised plans to expand its portfolio with the introduction of six new taverns throughout 2019, with revenues for the fourth quarter and full year of 2018 rising.

Strengthening its position within Laughlin, Nevada, via the acquisition of Colorado Belle Casino Resort and Edgewater Hotel and Casino, Golden also revealed plans to build upon its three new tavern openings in 2018 with a further six during 2019.

The company also revealed that its ongoing development of The Stratosphere remains at approximately $140m, with the project expected to be completed in 2021.
