 William Hill online sportsbook slows down

While in 2006, the retail business prospered following the successful integration of Stanley Retail and a strong impact of the soccer World Cup, growth in the online sportsbook gross win was modest when compared to the company's expectations at the beginning of the year. Interactive gross win increased 6% to £130.5m, operating profit showed a small increase to £61.5m and total active accounts increased to 405,000 from 341,000 a year earlier.
