The online casino company 888 Holdings has confirmed its £2.2bn purchase of William Hill International and signalled its intent to keep the bookmaker’s 1,400 shops as part of a foray into bricks-and-mortar betting.
But in an update published on 23 December, the regulator said it had discovered that William Hill provided “incorrect datapoints” for the 16 months between March 2020 and September 2021. As a result, the commission said it would have to re-analyse all its data and would not be able to publish correct information until February.
William Hill has been owned by the Las Vegas casino company Caesars since last year, when shareholders accepted a $3.7bn (£2.7bn) takeover bid, but the American firm was open about its lack of interest in the British company’s 87-year-old brand, its high-street bookmaking shops and its non-US online operations.
While its rivals maintained or increased revenues, William Hill suffered a 16% decline to £1.3bn, while profits slumped 61% to £57m. Bricks-and-mortar stores are just 4% of Flutter’s revenue but make up a quarter of William Hill’s and its high street estate saw income cut in half.
