    • Our founder, William Hill, started out in 1934, travelling around Birmingham on a motorbike and taking bets in the local area. He made enough capital to open his very first office above a hat shop taking racecourse bets over the telephone.

    • As a company, William Hill opened its first 18 betting shops all over London to capitalise on their popularity.

    • We became the first bookmakers to offer betting at Wimbledon.

    • William Hill became the first bookmaker floated on the London Stock Exchange (at just 225p per share).

    • We expanded our global footprint with customer service centres in Bulgaria and the Philippines, and marketing in Tel Aviv. A new HQ was also opened in Gibraltar.

    • We launched our brand new app and achieved an incredible 500,000 downloads.

    • Our international expansion continued with our purchase of Grand Parade, with offices in both London and Poland.

    • We purchased Swedish gaming company Mr. Green and welcomed Anthony Joshua as our new Global Brand Ambassador.

    • We were bought by Caesars for a cool £2.9bn.

    • Acquired by 888, we’re now one of the world’s leading online gaming and betting companies.
