LAS VEGAS (August 24, 2023) – Today, The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas and Yahoo announced a multi-year naming rights partnership for the Yahoo Sportsbook powered by William Hill on The Venetian casino floor.

There are an additional 30 TVs spread throughout the sportsbook to ensure fans don’t miss a minute of the action.
“We wanted to create the best place on the Strip to watch sports,” said Patrick Nichols, president and chief executive officer of The Venetian Resort 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.”

This partnership is another step in our ongoing commitment to engage and delight sports fans through our Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Fantasy platforms.”
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.
