French action to be suspended by William Hill Online

Online gambling division is considering its options regarding a licence application for France

The UK online and land gambling giant William Hill plc has announced that, following the introduction of new laws relating to online gambling in France, it is taking steps to cease accepting online gambling business from clients resident in that country.

In a brief statement, the group said that William Hill Online is considering whether to apply for a licence to offer permitted online gambling products to French residents.

William Hill Online continues to trade in line with management's expectations and the impact of the current withdrawal from France is not expected to be material, the firm said.

Last week Betfair and Sportingbet made similar announcements (see previous InfoPowa reports).
