CEO James Henderson said Tuesday:
The Group performed strongly in Q3 driven by both favourable sporting results and the continued development of our UK and international businesses. The period saw good gaming growth in both major channels and sports net revenue growth significantly boosted by a favourable year-on-year swing in win margin.
"Positive sporting results in the quarter, including a strong end to the World Cup, have moved us close to or ahead of normalised gross win margins on a year-to-date basis.
Online gaming continues to benefit from our investment in mobile and Sportsbook turnover growth remains healthy, with in-play turnover growth a particular feature, up 35 percent in Q3.
"In Retail, net revenue growth of 9 percent reflects a favourable sports margin, the benefit of the World Cup and a strengthening of machine gross win growth rates, despite the impact of 82 shop closures during the quarter.
Our international businesses are performing well. The progress made to date in William Hill Australia is delivering strong profit growth. Our work to optimise the customer base, following the onset of increased race field fees, has improved the gross win margin, with slightly reduced amounts wagered, as expected.
In Italy, we became number one in online sports betting in July with a 14 percent market share and in Spain we have further increased our online sports betting market share to 20 percent. William Hill US has continued to show growth in both wagering and profits.
"We continue to monitor closely potential developments in land-based sports betting in New Jersey.
Management expects operating profit for 2014 to be towards the top end of current consensus range assuming normalised results in the final quarter.


POKER ACE TO FRONT FOR TRIBAL GROUP?
2013-07-10

The usually well-informed poker information website Legal US Poker Sites has flagged strong rumours this week that international poker ace Phil Ivey is to front for the southern California Pala tribal group - which operates land casino interests near San Diego - in a new Internet gaming venture.
Because online poker has not yet been legalised in California, it is presumed that the new enterprise is contingent on intrastate legalisation in that state.
The report notes that former Bwin.Party co-CEO and industry veteran Jim Ryan is involved in the venture through a company titled Pala Interactive, using software from Realtime Edge, said to also power ClubWPT and RocketFrog.
