Stories have been flooding into us of William Hill workers left bereft by the sudden announcement of job losses. I will always stand on the side of protecting gambling addicts as that is what the Safer Online Gambling Group exists to do.


However, as a clarifying statement, we are sad to hear of these job losses and wished William Hill had the foresight to sustain their business model through products the government hadn’t deemed as so addictive. It is right we protect vulnerable customers.


It is William Hill who should have better shaped their revenue models and foreseen the growth in online gambling. The high street’s victims are indiscriminate whether it be retail stores or betting shops, both are in demise.
