William Hill Casino Review

William Hill has claimed that local lockdowns across England could cost it £2m of potential profits as it revealed that it’s already suffered a 9% drop in its 3rd quarter revenue.

Betsson consolidates Great Britain activity under Rizk brand

The casino operator Betsson has been gradually reducing its presence in the UK gambling market over the past few years, and lately, it’s made the decision to close all but one of its UK-facing brands.

Rizk will remain operating while Guts, Kaboo, Live Roulette, Betsson, Betsafe, Casino Euro, Racebets, and Jackpot247 will immediately close, helping Betsson to reduce costs.

Betsson only acquired Rizk from the Gaming Innovation Group earlier this year, and the brand continues to perform well within the UK thanks to its unique and ‘gamified’ playing experience.
