Major UK bookmaker William Hill is likely to record a £30m loss in the full year after its sales fell by 16 per cent to £1.32bn in 2020.
The company said that the year had been “one like no other,” despite a minor resurgence towards the end. The company is in the course of being acquired by US operator Caesars Group for £2.9bn.
Its revenues grew by nine per cent in its fourth quarter, mainly through online betting. Net online revenues rose five per cent in the UK in the year.
