About William Hill
William Hill PLC is one of the world's leading betting and gaming companies, employing c15,500 people. Its origins are in the UK where it was founded in 1934, and where it is listed on the London Stock Exchange. The majority of its £1.6 billion annual revenues are still derived from the UK, where it has a national presence of licensed betting offices and one of the leading online betting and gaming services. In 2012, it established William Hill US with a focus on retail and mobile operations in Nevada, the largest sports betting business in the US. Following the ruling in May 2018 by the US Supreme Court that the federal ban on state sponsored sports betting was unconstitutional, William Hill US has expanded into new states as they regulate sports betting. It is now operating in seven states: Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. William Hill's Online business acquired Mr Green & Co AB in January 2019, growing its international operations.
