Both William Hill & Mr Green won key awards at this year’s International Gaming Awards that were held at the Savoy Hotel on Monday night. William Hill picked up the Sports Betting Operator of the Year, which recognises the company that has lead the way in the sports arena, both in range of sports, customer service and originality. On receipt of their award, William Hill’s Head of Sportsbook Propositions Simon Kew said, “The team work day and night to ensure that we continue to be leaders in the field and I could not be happier for them that all their efforts have been recognised with this prestigious award.”
William Hill supports the BHA’s actions as they are in the best interests of equine welfare and we hope this cancellation prevents a wider outbreak. Of course we do not want a more extended period without racing but the BHA must act in the interests of equine welfare. William Hill is fully prepared for any cancellations as we have successfully diversified our products over a number of years to provide customers with products that sit alongside British racing as well as providing an alternative during periods of cancellations. We have live racing from South Africa, France, India and the US whilst also showing all Irish racing and selected meetings from Dubai, South Korea, Germany, Mauritius, Hong Kong and South America. International racing is popular with our customers and acts as an effective substitute when we lose British racing to the weather and football betting has grown substantially in recent years.
JOE ROBERTSON fancied the previous year's winner, Red Rum, to double up by winning the 1974 Grand National, so he popped down to his local William Hill betting shop and placed a £1 bet on the legendary horse at odds of 11/1 - then promptly forgot all about it. Now, FORTY THREE years later, William Hill have paid out on the bet .
