William Hill's move into US market stalls in Nevada | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it
Speculation that delay in considering gaming licence is due to company strategy head's past involvement in market abuse case...

The bookmaker William Hill's "strategically important" entry into the US sports betting market has stalled, with the company appearing to be struggling to persuade Nevada regulators to consider its application for a gaming licence.

The state's Gaming Control Board meets every month to vote on new applications and it is understood that William Hill's application has not been included on the May agenda, despite a vote being widely expected by now. The UK-based company is making the application after last year's announcement that it will acquire three Nevada sports betting companies: American Wagering, Brandywine and Cal Neva Sportsbook.
