William Hill’s app and website is built upon the operator’s propriety platform and allows bettors to place bets on a variety of markets across collegiate and professional sporting events. The app also features several deposit and withdrawal options, live scoring game updates and a built-in account registration process.
Thanks to the state’s sports wagering laws, customers can create online sports betting accounts remotely from anywhere within the state. This means that once registered, William Hill users can place bets remotely from anywhere within state lines.
The sportsbook operator initially entered the Mountain State’s sports betting market in 2018 via a licensing agreement with the Mountaineer Casino in Hancock County.

With the launch of William Hill’s online platform in West Virginia, the sportsbook operator now offers online sports betting in a total of four states including Iowa, Nevada and New Jersey. The operator also provides trading services for the Rhode Island Lottery’s sports betting platform.
The news of the operator’s West Virginia launch comes after William Hill finalised its acquisition of the sportsbook solutions provider, CG Technology.
Now that the deal with CG Technology is finalised William Hill will take over sports betting operations at four venues on the Las Vegas Strip, which includes The Venetian, The Palazzo, The Cosmopolitan and Silverton.
Sports betting in West Virginia
West Virginia was one the first states to move forward with sports betting following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 2018. Online betting in West Virginia originally went live in early 2019 with the launch of BetLucky.com, but this app was suspended due to a contractual dispute between Miomni Gaming and Delaware North.
Mobile sports betting returned to West Virginia in August 2019, with the launch of FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook. BetMGM became the third operator to launch its online sportsbook in the Mountain State in January.
