After Caesars Entertainment announced recently that it intends to sell its William Hill retail betting shops in the United Kingdom, the Irish gaming group, Boyle Sports indicated that it may be interested in purchasing the properties.

A spokesperson for Boyle Sports said in a statement that the group is considering buying “some or all of William Hill’s UK shops.”

“We have made no secret of our ambition to be one of the principal operators on the UK high street and believe that our retail and digital offerings represent a best in class, safe, and enjoyable proposition for the betting public,” read the statement.

“We already have 21 shops in the UK which, along with our 45 shops in Northern Ireland and our recently upgraded online betting site, gives us a sizeable foothold in the UK retail and online markets. The sale of the William Hill estate presents us with a rare opportunity to achieve the retail scale we have been targeting.”

But Boyle Sports is not the only gambling operator to express interest in purchasing the retail shops. Apollo Global Management, which was Caesars’ main rival when it was bidding to buy William Hill, also has its eye on the properties outside of the US.

Caesars Entertainment has always been clear about its plans to unload the non-US properties in the William Hill group.
