From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Hill is a British gambling company started in 1934. It does sports betting, online casino, online poker, and online bingo. It has a headquarters in London, with offices in Leeds and Gibraltar. Its International business runs from Malta. In July 2022 it was bought by 888 Holdings for £1.95 billion.[1] It employs about 12,000 people, 8,000 of them in the UK. The company ran 1,414 betting shops in 2017 but has since closed many of them.

It was fined £19.2million in 2023 for failing to protect its customers from accruing unpayable debts.[2]
