Florida-based Casino Miami has secured a new partnership with William Hill US which will see the operator open a William Hill Race Book at the casino, scheduled to open next month.
The agreement, which is yet to gain the green light from state legislators, will deliver a new viewing facility. The renovation will modernize the 2,300 square feet space next to the casino’s poker room and will include 10 50-inch TV screens in addition to a 30 ft video wall for racing fans to be able to watch a variety of tracks simultaneously.
Phillip Ruffin, Owner of Casino Miami, lauded the new partnership: “William Hill has unparalleled expertise and a rich history in racing. The company has led the industry for decades and together we will bring state-of-the-art technology and innovation to Casino Miami.
“This new race book will provide us with an incredible amenity for guests and will place us at the forefront of the forthcoming Florida sports betting business.”
The William Hill Race Book will give punters the chance to access pari-mutuel simulcast wagering, with the option for bettors to watch and wager on major Thoroughbred, Harness, and Greyhound tracks as well as Jai Alai from around the country.
“Casino Miami is a great location with a modern space where we have created a first-class experience for all racing fans in the area,” said Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US. “We look forward to working with Phil Ruffin and his team to enable our customers to bet on races from across the country.”
