William Hill launches a new Online Gambling Site in Ireland

Possible taxation increase did not prevent gambling group from continuing its Irish game

The Irish online gambling market saw launching of a new website by William Hill Online despite various political speculations that taxation on internet gambling operators will be increased.

A company spokesman says that William Hill plc's Gibraltar-based interactive division has created a new website for Irish punters providing a wide range of betting opportunities including various international and local sports events.

He also added that it had taken more than a year for the firm to develop this new website in order to contend for a share of the Irish online betting and gaming market which is worth Euro 1 billion as per the latest estimations.

'We're really excited about our new Irish venture and we're confident it will be a huge hit with Irish punters,' said Tony Kenny, head of international public relations at William Hill, 'The site itself took a year to design, develop and test, but all good things take time."

Referring to the employment opportunities, Kenny said: 'We already have around twenty Irish people working for William Hill Online and with further global expansions planned; we'll be looking for more top quality Irish staff to join our energetic team.'

The new site will offer Irish players over 500,000 betting opportunities ranging from GAA, football, horse racing, rugby, golf, motor sports, US sports to Irish novelty markets. In addition, the gaming experience such as bingo, poker, casino, live casino, vegas and slot games will be a part of the website offer.

On the other hand, William Hill Online's new financial site called 'Day Trader' will be interesting for all those who think of themselves as the next Gordon Gekko.

Irish customers will also be able to use four mobile apps - Mobile sportsbook, Racing App (Racing Post/WilliamHill), Shake-A-Bet and Match predictor as the mobile betting is a major growth area for the company. William Hill Online recently stated that mobile turnover rose by 800 percent from the beginning of the year.
