Companion for Will Hill's first iPad app, which has logged half a million downloads
Back in February this year, the online gambling division of William Hill
plc launched its first iPad app, and the popularity of that release can be gauged by the half a million times it has been downloaded by betting enthusiasts.
As 2012 ends, the company has launched a companion app that provides tablet access to football, horse racing and other sports betting.
A spokesman for the company, director of mobile operations Juergen Reutter, said Monday that William Hill apps currently account for 30% of its online betting and the new app is likely to boost that percentage further.
Mobile betting is booming, with more customers using our service as a second screen solution to watch sport at home or on the move, the spokesman said in a company statement.
Other Brit betting companies have their eyes on the tablet market too - Betfair
has had an iPad app out for some time, along with Betfred
, Paddy Power
, Sky Bet and Bet365
: Note that these apps are specifically aimed at sports betting punters. Mobile games for casino players are generally accessed via a web browser on the mobile device. More information on current casino products is available in the mobile casinos section
including William Hill and Betfair's offerings.
