The Downtown Grand’s forthcoming casino will come equipped with a William Hill sports book.

Fifth Street Gaming — developer and operator of the downtown stop — recently inked a long-term contract with the sports book giant, officials announced on Tuesday.

Expected to open with the casino and hotel in September, the William Hill sports book comes with a storefront, similar to the company’s 2,400 betting shops in the UK.

Officials say gamblers will have access to William Hill’s mobile sports betting applications — available on the iPhone, iPad and Android phones — and a self-service betting kiosk.

The Grand, an updated version of the Lady Luck, is expected to open on 3rd Street between Stewart and Ogden, a popular pedestrian district known as Downtown3rd.

“We are pleased to partner with Fifth Street Gaming and be a part of the Downtown3rd Project,” William Hill CEO Joe Asher said in a statement. “Downtown Las Vegas is undergoing an exciting transformation and Downtown Grand and other new businesses nearby will bring many new customers to the area.”
