Yahoo Sportsbook Opens at Venetian • This Week in Gambling
The Venetian has announced a multi-year naming rights partnership with the Yahoo Sportsbook. That sportsbook will be powered by William Hill and on the casino floor at The Venetian. The book was completely redesigned to provide sports enthusiasts and betting aficionados with a modern and luxurious setting to enjoy a wide range of sporting events.
“We are excited and privileged to launch the Yahoo Sportsbook in partnership with The Venetian Resort Las Vegas,” said Ryan Spoon, president of Yahoo Sports. “The Yahoo Sportsbook will offer sports fans a fabulous setting to enjoy games in a one-of-a-kind, branded environment. This partnership is another step in our ongoing commitment to engage and delight sports fans through our Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Fantasy platforms.
Completed in time for the biggest sports betting season of the year, this state-of-the-art venue spans more than 12,000 square feet and features a 46-million-pixel, 1,770 square foot LED video wall that can display up to 40 independent sporting events at once. There are an additional 30 TVs spread throughout the sportsbook to ensure fans don't miss a minute of the action.
Plush sofas and lounge chairs provide seating for 105, and for guests looking for an elevated group viewing experience, two Fan Caves are available. The Yahoo Fan Caves provide a unique and luxurious space with everything needed for the perfect game day viewing experience including two 98-inch UHD 4K guest-controlled displays, food and beverage service, and seating for eight or 12.
The Yahoo Sportsbook also boasts Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer and Noodle Asia will provide special menus for the sportsbook and Fan Caves, serving an array of game day favorites. A centrally located oval bar seats 29 guests and features 10, 65-inch 4K LED screens to ensure optimal viewing from all angles, as well as a 97-foot, high-resolution ticker displaying live odds and scores. With table games close by and bar top gaming featuring the newest games, fans have several gaming options at their fingertips.
“We wanted to create the best place on the Strip to watch sports,” said Patrick Nichols, president and chief executive officer of The Venetian Las Vegas. “This redesign pulls through the relaxed feeling of watching a game with your friends – plush sofas, lounge chairs, great game-day eats with the convenience of betting powered by William Hill. And through the partnership with Yahoo, we're sure to have additional surprises in store for our guests as we move into football season and beyond.”
