No William Hill deal for Pokerstars owner

Tue, 18 Oct 2016

The company that owns Pokerstars says it's no longer in talks with bookmaker William Hill over a merger.

Amaya, which bought the Isle of Man-based poker company in 2014, had been discussing a £4.5bn merger between the two firms.

Details of a potential deal between the two brands emerged earlier this month, which would have seen the pair become a world leader in sports betting, poker and casino.

However, William Hill has now confirmed that it walked away from the deal after talking to shareholders, while Amaya insists remaining independent is best for its investors.
