William Hill launches online and mobile sportsbook in Virginia


William Hill has become the latest gambling operator to launch sports betting in Virginia, going live in the US state with its online and mobile sportsbook offerings.

Built on William Hill’s proprietary platform, the sports betting mobile app allows players to place pre-game and in-play wagers from anywhere inside Virginia.

Players can register for a new account via the app, as well as on William Hill’s desktop version of its online sportsbook.

“Just in time for Sunday’s Super Bowl, our Virginia app will give football fans over 1,000 ways to bet this incredible matchup, from the opening coin toss to whether the game will be decided in overtime,” William Hill US president of digital Kenneth Fuchs said.

William Hill joins BetMGM, FanDuel, DraftKings and Rush Street Interactive (RSI) brand in launching sports betting in the state.

The Virginia Lottery has issued 26 sports betting vendor licenses to affiliates, payment providers and data suppliers.

William Hill now offers mobile sports betting in 10 US states, with the operator also active in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, West Virginia and Washington, DC. It also powers the trading services for the Rhode Island Lottery mobile app.
