James Adducci, 39, flew in on April 9 to make the $85,000 wager and then flew right back home, according to William Hill Plc, which took the bet. Woods, who was given 14-1 odds at the time of the bet, clinched his victory Sunday. “This is a story for the ages,” Joe Asher, chief executive officer of William Hill’s U.S. operations, said in a statement.
Tiger Woods threw up his arms and joined a jubilant Masters crowd in celebrating his win Sunday, easing 14 years of injury- and scandal-related frustration since his last win at Augusta. Bettors liked Woods and sportsbooks lost big. Last Tuesday, a bettor walked into the William Hill PL/ADR (OTC: WIMHY) sportsbook at the SLS Casino in Las Vegas and put $85,000 down on an improbable Woods comeback culminating in a Masters win, at 14-1 odds.
Wins for favourites generally tend to mean a major hit for bookies taking the action on Britain's biggest horse race of the year and another major firm, Betway, called Tiger Roll's win one of its biggest blows ever. The horse's owner, Ryanair Chief Executive Officer Michael O'Leary, celebrated the second consecutive victory, the first since Red Rum in 1974, by buying drinks for all passengers on his flight home to Dublin, according to footage posted on The Sun's website on Sunday. Eleven-year-old Tiger Roll, ridden by jockey Davy Russell, had a starting price of 4/1, compared with 14/1 last year https://www.grandnational.org.uk/previous-winners.php.
The National Hockey League said on Thursday the U.S. division of UK bookmaker William Hill Plc will become an official sports betting partner of the NHL. The league will get marketing revenue from the sports book, which can use NHL brands in advertising, excluding the NHL's new puck and player data. Such commercial deals between sports leagues and bookmakers have been coming quickly since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last May to allow states to legalize, regulate and tax sports wagering.
Betting companies with operations in Gibraltar on Spain’s southern flank worry Madrid will restrict land access to the tiny British territory when the U.K. leaves the European Union. GVC Holdings Plc and William Hill Plc have more than 1,400 employees on the rocky peninsula, which has long been an international betting hub because it had a legal framework for gambling before the U.K. mainland and more favorable taxes. Competing claims over the territory have caused tension between Spain and Britain for three centuries.
William Hill has plunged into the red and blamed the fallout from the anticipated introduction of a £2 maximum stake on fixed odds betting terminals (FOBT) next month. The company said the huge loss was largely due to an exceptional charge of £883m linked to the government’s decision to reduce the maximum stake on FOBTs from £100 to £2. The government announced plans to tighten the rules around the betting machines, which have been dubbed the “crack cocaine of gambling”, last year in a bid to curb gambling problems.
British betting companies have been pushing into the United States market because of tighter regulations at home and after the U.S. Supreme Court decided to overturn a federal ban on sports betting. William Hill has put money into a digital launch in New Jersey and has started operations or expanded in six states, and the investments resulted in a net adjusted operating loss of 33.2 million pounds in 2018.

An outbreak of equine flu means the sport remains shut down, as it has been since Thursday. Governing body, the British Horseracing Authority, says there will be no resumption until Wednesday at the earliest while tests are conducted on thoroughbreds across the country. For bookmakers William Hill Plc, Paddy Power Betfair Plc, and Ladbrokes owner GVC Holdings Plc, the cancellations are a blow, though maybe not a major one.
The company had cut its profit forecast in November due to tightening regulations at home, particularly on lucrative fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs), and warned of more losses in the United States. William Hill said 2018 adjusted operating profit from continuing operations would be 234 million pounds, slightly higher than company-supplied analyst estimates of 232.2 million pounds. Profit was lower in its retail business due to tough high-street conditions and the offering would be remodelled in 2019 as Chief Executive Officer Philip Bowcock looks to make the firm a "digitally-led international business", the company said.
