    I bought at 5 and not sure what is going to happen after the Ceasars deal is done. Do I lose my stock and get CZR stocks. Do I sell now d take the profits. Or does the stock stick around.

    William Hill is the biggest sleeper stock I have seen in awhile! Steadily increases every day. The 100 shares bought at $3 last year is looking good now. Eventually they will get into other states as well. Maybe a year or 2 and were looking at $25+

    Nine days ago Bloomberg reported William Hill's acquisition of Cantor Fitzgerald's sports betting unit CG Technology and now has designs on Caesars business. The casino operator, which already owns 20% of the U.K.-based operator's sports book in the U.S., was recently acquired by Eldorado Resorts.
    William Hill has run Eldorado's sports book exclusively since 2018, and anticipated the casino operator would acquire its rival.
    Yet Caesars is amenable to the match-up, with CEO Tom Reeg quoted as saying in July the union would result in "gathering all our mobile assets, both sports and online. That would be ideal."
    The merger could value the combined operations at around $7 billion. DraftKings is currently valued at $13.5 billion. While analysts believe it's possible Caesars could acquire William Hill, the betting money is on a publicly traded joint venture.
    Following Eldorado's acquisition of Caesars, William Hill will be responsible for 170 locations in 13 states.
    This company is for real. Great potential moving forward.

    I thought the buy out would be more than 3.7B....I really liked where William Hill was headed, partnerships, online, and volume. I owned them along with Draft Kings and Penn....I guess I could buy some CZR stock but I am bitter with the low buyout amount. Draft Kings and Penn will be forces over the next 5-10 years, I just wish William Hill was there for the ride...

    If you do your homework this has the potential to take off....I own DKNG, PENN & WIMHY. I honestly believe WIMHY can reach those levels. CBS DEAL, ESPN DEAL (VIA CAESARS). Physical locations in many states. ONE IN FOUR BETS are placed in the US are with William Hill. I believe they will be bought out by Caesars or DKNG. Either would be great.

    William Hill will most likely be bought out in less than a year....Caesars is probably the leading candidate but we can only hope DRAFT KINGS & PENN jump into the conversation. Draft Kings has the "espn" connection and the funds to be able to acquire a company like William Hill. We can only hope in the near future sports are not derailed by corona. SPORTS BETTING IN THE USA IS IN THE INFANCY STAGES....

    I first bought in April 2020. Bought again in June. (1000 shares) I will continue to add monthly. I use the William Hill sports app on my phone here in Vegas. These guys were first here in town to do the app thing and they run a simple , smooth book. Now when I lose a sports bet, I don't feel so bad......kinda paying myself some. Good luck

    Ross Capital thinks the U.S business side of WH is over $10 bills if they go public with it. If this is the case, why taking the $3.7 bills offer for the whole company from CZR. I hope they reject all offer and goes this route to unlock all values and taking advantage of the market that is favoring sports betting now. This will benefit both CZR and WH shareholders tremendously. They can use the new funds for expanding as well. I hope the WH's board sees this and takes advantage of this gem. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/caesars-bid-william-hill-gamble-040000290.html
    (Bloomberg) -- Call it the DraftKings Inc. effect. Since the sports-betting operator announced plans to go public last December, its shares have soared nearly sixfold. Though the company loses money and had revenue of just $430 million or so last yea

    Have a good feeling about William Hill. They have partnered with Penn National Gaming who acquired 36% of Barstool sports. William Hill already has a strong presence in online/mobile sports betting and with the addition of these two I can see big upside when sports resume within the coming months. Get in soon!

    Wm. Hill opens betting windows at Washington Caps home arena. A first for an American sports venue. They will operate 7 betting windows and 9 kiosks in the box office. They will take wagers on professional and collegiate sports. The box office is temporary while construction on a permanent sportsbook inside the arena continues.

    It's done. Over. Time to seek out the next consolidation play in the category or next solid growth potential.

    I found this interesting.
    "It’s worth recalling though that Apollo really doesn’t like being pushed around. Remember its attempt to buy U.K. plastics company RPC. Having declared its bid best and final, and securing RPC’s backing, Apollo was later gazumped by Berry Global Group — embarrassingly, one of its own former portfolio companies. Caesars is likewise a former Apollo buyout. At least this time round the private equity firm knows who it’s up against from the outset."

    CZR says if Apollo or any other buyer acquires William Hill that they would most likely kick out William Hill from their properties. Is this what they call a "lean" Best of luck guys.

    Almost 2B in 1 year revenue, and market cap is 3.5B, what this should be a $30 stock, compared to DraftKings or Penn, wow can you say undervalued, CZR already owns 20% of them, and william hill places 1 out of 4 sports bets.

    Market Caps:
    William Hill - 2.9 Billion
    DraftKings - 19.2 Billion

    Still undervalued.
