William Hill US is set to launch betting on horse racing in Florida after agreeing a deal to open a new land-based facility at Casino Miami, marking the first time it will operate in the market.
Subject to regulatory approval, the racebook is scheduled to open before the end of the current year. The planned facility will feature 10 screens for fans to watch events, as well as a 30ft video wall, high-top tables and 30 race carrells.
Should William Hill US and Casino Miami secure approval for the launch, the new racebook would offer pari-mutuel simulcast betting.
While wagering will be limited to thoroughbred and harness horse racing, as well as greyhound racing and Jai Alai, from across the US, the launch would give the operator a foothold in the state should sports betting be legalised.
