The Las Vegas Strip has gotten another sportsbook! Last Thursday, Yahoo Sportsbook was launched at The Venetian. As its name suggests, the sportsbook is owned by tech giant Yahoo, but what you might not know is that it’s operated by William Hill.
There are now 88 land-based sportsbooks in Vegas, a couple of which are powered by William Hill. In addition to the one at The Venetian, the British bookmaker also operates the sportsbook at Arizona Charlies Boulder, Bally’s Las Vegas, Bighorn Casino, Harrah’s, and a few other venues.
When it comes to Yahoo Sportsbook, its Vegas chapter is operated by William Hill. However, this sportsbook is available in 14 other states, in each of which is operated by BetMGM. The launch of the Yahoo Sportsbook in Vegas, however, could mean the beginning of a new era in the William Hill-Yahoo partnership.
Yahoo Sportsbook Vegas Poised for Success
Covering an area of over 12,000 square feet, Yahoo Sportsbook at The Venetian is one of the largest sportsbooks in the city. It has lounge chairs and sofas that can accommodate more than 100 patrons, as well as an oval bar with roughly 30 seats.
We are so excited to announce our partnership with @YahooSports, coming to life in the new Yahoo Sportsbook powered by William Hill. This state-of-the-art venue spans more than 12,000 sq ft and features a 46-million-pixel, 1,770 square foot LED video wall. What are you watching? pic.twitter.com/15sJiUtkKV

The sportsbook also has a huge LED video wall that’s 1,770 square feet big. There’s also a 97-foot live-odds ticker, as well as 10 4K screens, each with a 65-inch diagonal, which are meant to be used for live broadcasts of popular sports events.
When it comes to its betting offer, being operated by William Hill, Yahoo Sportsbook offers the same betting markets and odds as the UK-based gaming giant. What this means for the bettors is that they’ll get lucrative betting prices on a wide range of markets across dozens of competitions, including America’s favorites like the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, UFC, and others.
