A New Sports Betting Casino Has Landed In Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas stays there, or so they say. Las Vegas is known for so many things, from the lavish casinos to the endless forms of entertainment – legal and otherwise, not to mention the heat. However, in truth, the reason Las Vegas has become an icon the world over has little to do with the desert and more to do with the casino strip. Fortunately, yet another one has been added to the casino strip in Las Vegas thanks to William Hill. It was recently announced that Hill has opened a sports betting club at the Circus Circus owned by Ruffin. 

A New Development

The William Hill group will be opening the 114th sports betting association of theirs within the state of Nevada at the Circus Circus venue. However, the Circus Circus site has recently changed hands, so recent in fact that the sale only occurred this past Thursday on the 19th of December. It was reported that MGM Resorts International sold the site to Phil Ruffin almost immediately after the Nevada Gaming Commission of NGC recognized the sale of the venue. Ruffin, a multibillionaire private investor, has joined with William Hill in announcing that they will be embarking on major plans to renovate the Circus Circus sports betting areas so that they may attract a more significant crowd. 

It was announced that the sportsbook will undergo refurbishing post the Super Bowl festivities. However, it has been mandated that everything should be finalized for a reopening prior to the 2020 March Madness College Basketball Tournament. Some of the new features that will be included in the Circus Circus sports booking zone include state of the art tv screens, statistics boards, improved seating and a host of other novelties sure to pull in the bettors. William Hill has partnered with Ruffin before, when they opened a racebook at the Casino Miami in Florida – another of Ruffin’s casino portfolio.

William Hill is no stranger to the world of casinos, nor to Las Vegas and is fast becoming one of the leading players for sports betting (known as vedonlyönti within the city. If one only considers November 2019, then William Hill acquired the books of the Cosmopolitan, the Palazzo, the Venetian and the Tropicana. In addition, William Hill also secured the betting sections of well-known casinos such as the Palms. It seems that William Hill is extremely positive about the new merger, as the CEO Joe Asher stated that the northern part of the Las Vegas strip is becoming a new beacon for upcoming developments and that William Hill is thrilled to be a part of it.

However, the refurbishment of the sports wagering area is not the only thing that Ruffin is envisioning for the Circus Circus, especially since there are approximately 4 000 hotel rooms to think of. Ruffin even mentioned that he would like to add a 2 000 seat theatre at the Circus Circus to allow audiences the opportunity to view shows in true opulence. One thing is for sure grand things are happening in the northern end of the Las Vegas strip, one only has to look at the $4.3 billion Resorts World which will be opening in 2021 to see it.
