Users who are part of a loyalty program and transfer their accounts to Mr. Green and William Hill will be added to a similar program at the new sites.
William Hill says that marketing efforts for the three brands have also now ceased and no new accounts are being accepted. EuroGrand and 21Nova were both launched in 2006, while Casino Club launched in 2009.
With the sites going offline, William Hill will continue to offer six online casinos primarily aimed at the UK market: Mr. Green, William Hill, Redbet, 11.lv, Bertil and Mama Mia Bingo.
William Hill further reported that of its revenue of $1.76 billion (equivalent to €1.55 billion) in 2020, online operations accounted for 61% of revenue. Physical gaming stores would bring in 26% of gross revenue and the company’s U.S. operations would represent the remaining 13%. In the Netherlands, William Hill and its online casino brands are not active.
