SLS Las Vegas has partnered with William Hill to roll out its sports book when the forthcoming Strip resort opens in fall 2014.

The sports book will allow guests to place wagers using William Hill’s new mobile betting platform on their iPhones, iPads and Android devices. An HD video wall will feature the day’s games and betting odds as well as fully automated InPlay wagering on many events.

“Together we’ll create a sports wagering experience that’s best in class for the market and takes the traditional sports book model to a whole new level,” Rob Oseland, president of SLS, said in a statement.

SBE Entertainment, owned by Los Angeles hotelier Sam Nazarian, broke ground in March on the former Sahara, which closed in 2011 after almost 60 years in operation.
