    William Hill's U.K. Troubles Make U.S. Gambling Push More Urgent

    Weakness in William Hill Plc’s home market shows just how much it needs a bet on the U.S. to pay off. The U.K. bookmaker’s shares slid as much as 10.5 percent, the biggest intraday drop in more than three months, after the report revealed worse than expected business in Britain, taking the shine off sports-betting partnerships it announced in the newly-deregulated U.S. market. William Hill’s first-half revenue missed estimates as footfall slowed in the gambling stores that are a fixture of Britain’s town centers.

    Sports betting passes New Jersey legislature, moves to governor

    New Jersey's legislature unanimously passed a bill on Thursday to regulate and tax sports betting at casinos and racetracks, which would make it one of the first states to legalize the activity following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month. The legislation now goes to Governor Phil Murphy, who would have to sign it before operators could start taking sports wagers. New Jersey and other states are racing for a piece of the estimated $150 billion spent on illegal annual wagers in the United States, after the top court in May overturned a 1992 law that had banned sports wagering except in a few places, including Las Vegas.

Gambling companies William Hill (WMH.L)  , GVC Holdings (GVC.L)and 888 Holdings (888.L)are among the names that bulls view as due for gains.

    Britain cuts top stake on gambling machines on addiction fears

    Critics of the machines, often dubbed the "crack cocaine" of gambling, had also written to Prime Minister Theresa May urging the government to cut the stake to 2 pounds. The decision deals a blow to companies such as William Hill (WMH.L) and GVC (GVC.L) who had argued that the terminals were a major source of income for high-street betting shops which are struggling to stay afloat as younger gamblers move online, putting jobs at risk. Gambling companies -- most of which run internet as well as high street businesses -- face a two-way squeeze as the government plans to increase Remote Gaming Duty on online gambling to offset the loss of income from the cut in the stake.
