Penn National Gaming has chosen William Hill US to handle wagers at the Henderson-based property, the companies said in a joint statement Tuesday. CG Technology’s 10-year contract to run the sportsbook at M Resort expired. CG Technology will continue to run the book until William Hill takes over in May pending regulatory approval.
William Hill expects to assume operation of the race and sportsbook in May 2019. It will extend William Hill’s presence in Nevada to a market-leading 115 sportsbooks. William Hill also provides sports betting technology and risk management services to Penn National Gaming properties in Mississippi, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with our friends at Penn National to operate the sports book at The M. It is a fabulous property, serving the Henderson and Southern Highlands areas, as well as guests from out of town, and we look forward to bringing our market-leading product to these customers,” said Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill Us.
“We are delighted to be teaming up with William Hill at M Resort,” said Ameet Patel, Sr. Vice President of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming. “We have an active sportsbook at M Resort and we think our guests will benefit greatly from William Hill’s expertise.”
Opened in March 2009, the M Resort Spa Casino is situated on over 90 acres at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and St. Rose Parkway. The casino features over 92,000 square feet of gaming space including 1,900 slot machines, 64 table games, 14 poker tables and a race and sportsbook.
