NEWS STORY : William Hill Given £19.2 Million Penalty for Failing to Protect Customers


Three companies belonging to William Hill have been fined a total of £19.2 million by the Gambling Commission for failing to protect their customers. Andrew Groves, the Chief Executive of the Gambling Commission said in a statement:

“When we launched this investigation the failings we uncovered were so widespread and alarming serious consideration was given to licence suspension. However, because the operator immediately recognised their failings and worked with us to swiftly implement improvements, we instead opted for the largest enforcement payment in our history”.

888, the new owners of the William Hill brand, said:

“After William Hill was acquired, the company quickly addressed the identified issues with the implementation of a rigorous action plan.”
