Live and online betting
William Hill US has launched sports betting services in the state of Iowa via a partnership with Caesars Entertainment. The Horseshoe Casino in Council Bluffs is now home to a full-service sportsbook, while the Harrah’s Council Bluffs location features betting kiosks. Both properties offer mobile sign-ups, so players can access the William Hill app and place bets while inside the state’s borders.
The launch comes just a few days after William Hill was approved by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission. The approval was the final step needed to start offering betting services.
The Horseshoe Casino took to Twitter to announce the opening with details about first time deposits:

In Iowa, players must first sign up for an online sports betting account at a retail location. With the launch of services at both the Horseshoe and Harrah’s, players can visit either location to create a new account.

After signing up, the first mobile deposit must be completed before the account can be used. Once the initial process is completed, players can make a deposit and bet from anywhere in Iowa. Players who make their first deposit are currently eligible for a risk-free bet worth up to $300.
Mobile users can download the provider’s sportsbook app via iOS or Android devices.
At the Horseshoe, the sportsbook includes five manned ticket windows and four self-service kiosks. At Harrah’s, two self-service kiosks have been installed.
Pennsylvania and Michigan sportsbook launch
The recent launch in Iowa is not the first for William Hill US this month. Just last week, the brand announced the opening of its full-service William Hill Sportsbook at Harrah’s Philadelphia. This launch was also completed in partnership with Caesars Entertainment.
At the Philadelphia location, the sportsbook provides six ticket windows and 16 self-service betting kiosks. Players can also choose to wager online in Pennsylvania via the mobile app. Like other states, players must be located within the Commonwealth’s borders to access services.
A new sportsbook also launched in Michigan at the Turtle Creek Casino. William Hill US teamed up with the Grand Traverse Resort & Casinos to open the new facility. The venue, called The Onyx Sports Book by William Hill, features a variety of sports betting options.
