Northern Territory Fined William Hill For ‘Multiple Failings’ Ahead Of Stars Group Deal

The Northern Territory gaming regulator fined William Hill’s soon-to-be divested Australian subsidiary more than A$18,000 ($14,000) in January for failing to prevent a self-excluding problem gambler from reopening a wagering account, it has been revealed.

The Northern Territory Racing Commission’s fine of A$18,326 was imposed due to “systemic” errors and “in respect of the serious nature of the issue and multiple failings by staff and systems”, according to the judgment.

The fine, which was issued on January 30 and required payment by February 14, amounted to 70 percent of the maximum possible fine, but the commission opted not to suspend William Hill Australia’s licence.
