William Hill from humble beginnings to worldwide acclaim

William Hill online bookmaker was established in 1934 by a businessman William Hill. This now-famous bookmaking agency started as a small telephone and postal betting service based in Jermyn Street, and accepted bets with enclosed cheques that had to be sent weeks in advance of events. Today, William Hill's land base consists of almost 2,300 betting shops across the UK and Ireland (ca. 25% of the UK and Irish market) employing over 15,000 people in the UK, Ireland, Israel and Bulgaria and processing over 1 million betting slips a day.
