Sports Book Marks 114th Nevada Location

LAS VEGAS (December 20, 2019) – William Hill US, America’s leading sports betting company, will begin sports book operations at the legendary Circus Circus Las Vegas today, Friday, Dec. 20.

The sports book will be renovated after the Super Bowl with plans for a grand opening celebration ahead of the 2019/2020 March Madness College Basketball Tournament. The remodeled space will feature updated video screens, odds boards, seating, and more.

“Phil Ruffin has been a great partner, and we look forward to working with him as he breathes new life into this iconic property,” said Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US. “Circus Circus is a Las Vegas landmark with more than 50 years of history. The north end of The Strip has so many new and updated offerings opening over the next few years and we’re excited to plant another flag in this part of town.”

Phil Ruffin, Owner of Circus Circus Las Vegas said, “Joe and the William Hill team were the first I thought of to oversee the sports book at Circus Circus. William Hill has been a leader in sports betting for more than 85 years and is one of the most trusted brands in the industry. I can’t wait to see the remodeled space next year.”

The sports book will offer bettors access to William Hill’s industry leading mobile app, kiosks, and InPlay wagering menu. The partnership at Circus Circus builds on the relationship between William Hill US and Mr. Ruffin who together recently opened a William Hill Race Book at Casino Miami in Florida.
