One in five bet on mobiles – William Hill

William Hill, the UK bookmakers has said that its users increasingly prefer mobiles for making bets.

The past weekend has been especially good for them and new records were set. This thanks to the England friendly against Belgium and the Derby.

Grand National Day (April 14) saw the William Hill app being downloaded more than 26,000 times. What did this result in? More than a thousand bets per minute were placed for the biggest race of the year. William Hill’s expectation from the derby was around 800 bets a minute.

William Hill believes that when half of all non-cash bets will be placed through mobiles in the next two years.

Kate Miller, PR Director – Willian Hill, said that the firm has seen phenomenal growth in their mobile channel in recent months and their app has taken center stage. Mobiles will be the main entry point to the next generation from business and betting perspectives.
