William Hill announces technical migration of Australian brands into one platform

William Hill has announced the complete migration of its three acquired Australian brands - Centrebet, Tom Waterhouse and Sportingbet Australia. The integration will see all brands managed under a single platform, promoting unified technologies and products to its Australian customer base.

William Hill will maintain all three brands active, which counters previous industry speculation that the operator would be looking to condolidate its Australian brands into one.

2013 saw William Hill acquire all three brands in order to enter the Australian online sport betting market. The acquisition saw William Hill become the third biggest online gambling operator behind Paddy Power and Tabcorp. The combined acquisition contributed £86.7 million in net revenue and £12 million in profit for 2013 performance.

William Hill will re-launch Sportingbet.com.au with a new mobile friendly responsive site. The operator further announced that the re-launch would be supported by an ongoing Australian tv advertising campaign which would be promoted by former Australian international cricketer Shane Warne (former brand ambassador for 888 Poker).
