Silver Legacy Resort Casino and William Hill announce the grand opening of the new Race and Sports Book. After over $2 million in renovations a grand opening date has been set for Sept. 8 in conjunction with the start of pro football. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 5 p.m.
What does $2 million look like?
Upon entering the new Race and Sports Book, two state-of-the-art, high-definition LED walls, each measuring in at an impressive 27 feet wide by nine feet high, will make sports fans feel as if they are on the 50 yard line at any football stadium in America. Lined with 167 seats of unobstructed viewing, games will be played on over 60 televisions and a center bar with 20 beers on tap that range from local favorites like Pigeon Head Pilsner and Brew Brothers Carano Extra to game day classics like Bud and Bud Light. The center bar will also have 18 video poker machines, making it the only book in Northern Nevada with a video poker bar.
William Hill offers a diverse betting menu throughout the year on every sport: pro and college football, pro and college basketball, baseball, horse racing, soccer, auto racing, hockey, MMA, boxing and more.
So where's the party?
In honor of the grand opening, KDOT radio station will broadcast live during the game and food and drink specials will be available. Spectators can enjoy 16 ounce domestic drafts for $4 and 22 ounces for $5, $5 drink specials and specialty street hot dogs from the Nathan’s Hot Dog Cart with assorted toppings and weekly specialty sandwiches. The Bud Light girls and Jack Daniels girls will also be present and handing out prizes and knick knacks. Plus, one lucky person will win a brand new TV.
