William Hill to pursue Maryland and Montana through Golden Entertainment agreement

The two companies already had a partnership in place, with the new agremeent expanding the existing relationship.
Previously, William Hill operated the race and sportsbook at Pahrump Nugget Hotel & Gambling Hall, as well as deposit kiosks at around 80 locations across Nevada.

A key aspect of the deal is also the pursuit of sports betting opportunities in Montana and Maryland, subject to legalisation of regulated sports wagering within the states.
Steve Arcana, Golden Entertainment COO, said: “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.”
Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US, said: “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.”
